The fact that people are trying to second guess the next moves, is IMO symptomatic of a couple of significnt facts:
1. We have a government which murders at will and which constantly lies to the people.
2. There is an observed history of too many 'uncanny' 'coincidences' in many, many areas, including images from films and cartoons accurately
forshadowing actual events. Coincidences which defy every single law of probability.
3. Thirdly, there is a known stimulus/response dynamic called partial reinforcement. This has been well researched and evidenced. By giving
intermittent and unpredictable stimuli to the test subjects, anxiety levels were seen to increase. To me this is a technique which the government is
using as a form of psychological terrorism/torture on the masses. The kind of responses you are condemning is the predictable response to this kind
of aggression by TPTB. As such, it is an attempt to make sense of an increasingly illogical world. A compassionate response would be more
And of course, there will also be other people with 'problems' who will enter the fray.
Not all 'prediction' threads fall into the same category, it is quite easy to differentiate between them.
I personally am not interested in predictions of the kind which have allegedly been 'channelled' by alleged 'higher beings'. However, I respect the
right and the freedom of others to believe in those things and discuss them without being ridiculed. I am, and will continue to be vigilant about any
'coincidences' I see in the media which might conceivably be foreshadowing an actual event. And I will participate in any such thread on ATS as I
I would like to make a request too, to ATS posters. Why can't you just live and let live?
What's with all the nasty, scornful, insulting that goes on towards others who participate in such threads.
These responses are redolent of the same kind of attitude the current gubberment has towards the people. Specifically, 'We don't like what they are
saying. Imprison them, shoot them, but shut them up.'
Why not siimply avoid threads which don't interest you, or which seem ridiculous to you?
Can't you simply live and let live, or are you on a mission to re-make ATS in your own image?
After all, it's a public forum and I defend my right to participate in 'ridiculous' discussions if I so wish.
