The very fact that you are reading this may indicate that you suffer from a psychosis characterized by delusions of grandeur, coupled with feelings of euphoric bliss, at the prospect of being clued in to terrible events and conspiracies that may be contributing to the end of civilization as we know it.


Actually I'd say that a pretty accurate description of the climate alarmists.

Oh wait. wrong subject


When debating climate you are denying the facts, ignoring the problems and refusing to accept responsibility if you disagree with the mainstream view.


What it basically boils down to is that if you disagree with the party line there must be something wrong with you.

There is not such thing as addiction, it is called a habit.

Some people are addicted to prayer, my dad prays 5 times a day, and gets pissed off if he misses one prayer, so how are you gonna fix his addiction?

Technology is very helpful, he has a clock which has alarms set for all 5 times he needs to pray.

Usually he misses his prayers either due to him working over night, which makes it harder for him to wakeup, or when he is travelling far distance in a car.

Amazing ha, I admire my dad, and his commitments

when something your own body consumes which it does not produce the process of maintaining that consumption is addiction.

since this is not in the religious conspiracy thread ill share my thoughts on porn relating to philosophy and existential physics.

porn is healthy for the viewer in relation to the viewer and the development of thought relating to sense interaction; because of its richness in this regard it is harmful if you are using it for this purpose with selfish desires belying your interest.

porn is not constructive to an order pertaining sense interaction with objects; and if the studier of "metaphysics" sees any order arising from self senses and the purveying of porn he is a self witness to the chaos that is an orderly business.because of this; its value is immeasurable: akin to a budda or christ person, yet self perceptible and intimate to the viewer who sees any order thereof.


if you are asking an impersonal question based on personal conjectures of what is an additive; are you questing in your own proper direction?

Porn they say is the biggest industry in Internet.



Pornography is big business--with $10 billion to $14 billion in annual sales. The author, Frank Rich, suggests that pornography is bigger than any of the major league sports, perhaps bigger than Hollywood. Porn is "no longer a sideshow to the mainstream...it is the mainstream," he says.


Dang, that is huge..

OK, I think you guys are taking the title to this thread a little too literally.



The story was about TPTB denigrating conspiracy theorists with silly characterizations and whether conspiracy theorists are addicted to bad news.


Let's try to keep from drifting off topic. From the mod activity on this thread, it's obvious they're keeping a close eye on this one. (and probably praying that this one doesn't get to the front page
)

do you feel my reply was off topic?

do you want to read it again after you have reread your first post.


i stand by all i have said in like manner as this thread is worded.further i find it reprehensible for you to assume i need speak profane when in like fashion as this thread title is worded so is my post.

maybe you think i should have ventured down roads you have inlaid for me to travel based on the content of your OP.

thank you for reminding me of moderators; and for being kind enough to let me know what i have posted has no relational value to this thread: i do not concur with your musing.

Sorry about that, I didn't mean to offend.


Your post was in no way profane, in fact it was very well thought out and informative.

I was just saying that you were taking the porn angle a little too literally.

You missed some of my oldies but goodies:

Smell your partner's pits to tell how they're feeling.

and

Blast your nuts with ultrasound. The next big male contraceptive?


Also, I just couldn't resist using this classic title:

Wake up White People!

I know, this can be a funny topic but ANY addiction is dangerous to the one that has it. Alcohol. Drugs(whatever). Gambling. Pr0n. Easy to make jokes about the last one. "Lotion" comes to mind.


The thing is that once a person is consumed by whatever it is that fuels their obsession, that can be lethal to the individual. It can be poison to society.

The writer of this article can be none other than a typical male in that everything in his world has some connotation to the vivid pictures in his mind. He is likely immature emotionally yet intellectually equipped.

As for "pessimistic porn", my journey here at this point in my life has been a Spiritual path. My entire life has been spent trying desperately at fitting in and making it work. I followed orders and then some, typically I would find myself going above and beyond my duties and this is where I ran into trouble. Inevitably I ran into managers, supervisors, leaders, and chiefs who wanted nothing to do with working harder or working reasonably. My ability to see beyond the common practice of the day caused strife, upset, and eventual harassment. I hated hearing, "your making us look bad", or the denial that there was anything wrong with how things get done.

For years I felt I was missing some sort of equation that would enable me to finally fit into the working world, but I could never find it. So many people made me feel inadequate like I was missing something in my thoughts and processes. Often I attributed it to be overly sensitive or more connected emotionally. I came to the conclusion they were all idiots! LOL

It was the reaching and questioning and the constant tearing things apart that was my answer all along. I knew I could find a better way to life, an easier way perhaps, but definitely a healthier, happier, cleaner way of life. Along that path I realized that the only way my "future" could come to pass for everyone would be that it all had to come to an End.

I think this was about the same time R.E.M. sang the song that goes, "It's the end of the World as we know it, and I feel fine"

Of course my beginnings with all this was not online, I am from the Generation before the advent of the Internet. I did not find myself getting online until years after I began to question the World and its teachings and even then I believed all of this would come to an end.

So as for the snippets of doom and the meanderings of gloom, I would say Yes! I gobble it all up because it is coming! I used to be frightened, but the more and more I embrace every aspect as the worst aspect I find myself able to better prepare.

I guess in Porn if you view it enough you eventually are desensitized to it. Watching the NFL in the nude might be more entertaining though! LOL

Honestly I have to agree with their analysis to some extent. Back when I first joined this site and did a lot of online research into the NWO, 2012 and the like I really did think the whole world was about to collapse and that everyone was a sheeple but me. That was until my skepticism kicked in


Referring to the rest of the world as sheeple does make people feel good.

Now I do think there are other reasons to believe in conspiracy theories but I have to admit the doomsaying on this site gets on my nerves. People constantly referring to FEMA camps, depopulation and the apocalypse in general as if it were right around the corner. There is a certain beauty to entropy, a certain feeling that comes with the territory of believing we're all truly doomed.

First off, here's the offending article referenced by in the OP. It is not even an article...hell, it has the content of a blog post. Hugo Lindgren doesn't even use the words 'conspiracy' or 'theorists'. If that article is condemning anyone it is Gerald Celente. Lindgren is, like a lot of us, just a man who is fed up with this relentless bombardment of doom and gloom and apocalypse that some people are profiting from. OP, would I be wrong to assume that you like this Gerald Celente. I don't know who he is, but I am about to look him up...I shall see.

I am addicted to digging for the truth, whether it be optimistic or pessimistic. I like to educate myself about the world around me, and the possibilities it could hold that I havent yet discovered. Personally, I find it a hell of a lot more intelligent than reading up on the newest Lindsay Lohan scandal or taking some dumba&$ online personality quiz, or playing farmville. Ugh.
