It has a half smart title but it does present a heck of a lot more than just this concept it also talks about past mining on earth and many other
things and does some interesting lateral thinking so here is your rule of thumb if you are a lateral thinker you will enjoy it if you are a staunch
defender of official science and official history it will probably give you an anneurysm.
I have watched a good portion of this video and would like to finish it sometime soon. I just wish it had a different title. Many people are not even
watching it because they can't get past this nonsense title. The way it is worded, is just a big turn off. Is not accurate. Could have been done a lot
better. Is confusing to most. This confustion leads to frustration and rejection of the material, and it sort of decreases ones willingness to even
watch it. I had to force myself to, out of sheer curiousity, but was glad I did watch it.
I just really wish it had a better title, because then we could have had an interesting discussion (part of which, I hate to say because I like you,
is also because of a lack of a sufficient/proper/informative summary) instead of a bunch of people only reading the title and then posting:
"Ummmm...yeah, there is a forest in my backyard. Duh... there are lots of forests." Plus, it seems this versio of the video which you posted is titled
"...no GIANT forests..." and your thread title is the more extreme "no forests" PERIOD. AT ALL. which is only increasing people's
But I thought... (I probably just misremembered...? *shrugs*)the version I watched, with a robotic voice that was supposed to be "easier to
understand than the original's Russian accent (although, I have not seen the original, I would think a Russian accent would be easier, for me
personally, to decipher, than the robotic voice with a very odd cadence and flow, with no consideration or understanding of commas, question marks,
etc...) was titled the same as your thread (i.e. "NO forests" vs. "no GIANT forests")
Anyway, I cannot really comment on much more, since I have only watched probably less than half of it. But, from my understanding, he is claiming that
these gigantic trees/forests of the past, were actually silicon based, rather than carbon based life? A special kind of silicon wood?
I very much enjoyed the images of petrified logs that appeared to have been made partially out of semiprecious gemstones. Very pretty. I would like to
see that place in person, as well as the "gigantic stump" nearby!
Anyway, other than that... As always, thanks for sharing bud!
