Jeez I hoped this thread was a joke, but it looks like it's more Electric Universe crap.
There's a reason that the only places you'll see anyone talking about this garbage and not be joking are Internet forums and YouTube videos -
helpful hint: It's not because powerful people are trying to suppress anything.
Obviously the motivation of the promoters is money and a cult following, but for those that are tempted to go with it because you're feeling
rebellious against the Government, Science, etc - please don't become an idiot just because it's 'different' and 'cool'.
It seems obvious to me that most people on the Internet who go for this sort of thing basically want to watch a 30 minute video and suddenly be
smarter than the smartest people on the world.
Here's a rather obvious fact, whatever you want to believe you are not going to receive that information from a short video. It takes many YEARS of
experience and learning to even BEGIN to grasp any serious subject matter. If some forum idiot comes along and says they've disproven well
established modern theories on the back of a napkin last night and they've put together a YouTube video to show it, trust me - they haven't.
We all want to feel clever and special, but believing in a load of crap only makes you special... very, very special..
Scientific theory is not the 'my mate down the pub has a theory' type, so when someone says something like "Yes well you don't KNOW what the Sun
is like, that's just a theory" - they're talking like it were a hypothesis. However the scientific theories being discussed are just this, theory,
and as such have mountains of highly detailed evidence to back them up that has been peer reviewed and correlates with other methods. If it concerns
anyone that much you can do what I did, actually LEARN about as much as possible so you can BEGIN to understand. Asking someone on a forum to
'prove' something which has basically been proven to the entire scientific community and do it in 100 words or less is ridiculous. Modern scientific
understanding is so complex and vast that unless you are prepared to take people's word for it to an extent, you'd better start learning NOW and
realise that you will never know everything.
I find it ridiculous and actually quite insulting that some people who will even admit they know nothing about the subject matter will watch half an
hour of tripe and then argue with people who actually know what they're talking about and think they're superior somehow.
We're at a point where information is now easier to find than ever, yet so many people seem to waste this gift on lining people's pockets while
destroying their minds..
You can access a lot of actual useful information online like free university course content, MIT has a massive collection of course material online
available for free as do others. There are even excellent and more informal sites like Khan's Academy.
Then there's the old favourite - books..
But if all of the useful information is all too complicated to understand so you keep feeling paranoid you're just being 'programmed by the system'
or something, or you would rather stick to becoming a 30 minute YouTube video expert in a dumb subject that no one worth their salt takes seriously -
be my guest. You'll always find a home on an 'alternative subject forum' away from those nasty scientists and pesky intellectuals.
