Indeed - so are you saying that yuo do not need proof (or credible evidence) in order to believe?
There are plenty of things which will never be proved in our lifetimes probably - ranging from energy meridians, which the Chinese have been
using for thousands of years to the whys and wherefors of homeopathy.
Dunno aobut the Chinese, but the why's and wherefores of Homeopathy are well known - water has a memory, and since every bit of water on the planet
has been next to every possible element, has passed through stars, and been pissed out by animals of every description while passing thrpugh their
guts, it must be true that having a drink of water is good for you.....or you're just swallowing horse-piss!!
Did I miss anything??
Now, there are hospitals which run on homeopathy, the Queen Mother and other members of the royals seem to live quite well using that system
and there are numerous anecdotal evidence for things such as Flower Remedies which are also based on homeopathic methods.
Flowers, and plants in general, contain real medicines - they are not homeopathic.
Basically we dont have the measuring instruments at the moment to give you all the proof you need of these things and aliens, UFOs, ghosts,
dimensions, God and all the other things.
Yep - and so you can't actually say that any of those exist.
You are free to beleive that they exist, but if you want to spend real money - taxpayer dollars - or force people to behave in the manner which you
would like to prescribe, you really need a bit more than that.
So get over it. There are going to be things in this world that you cannot measure, and it does not mean that their effect is not 'real' to our
"Chemtrails" are supposedly very real - they are chemicals, or pathogens, or something - THEY SHOULD BE MEASUREABLE - so perhaps it is you who needs
to understand that this is not somethign that can "exist" based on faith alone - if you are postulating that these things have real, measureable
effects, then where's the measurements???
BTW homeopathy has real measureable effects - exactly the same as placebos......
It is just your collective insecurities coming up which mean that you are not comfortable with anything you cannot explain in scientifically
explainable terms. Sad really. As if science knows it all anyway. Ha!
Science knows what it knows, and "chemtrails" shoudl be knowable by science because the things that chetmrail believers are claiming are all
scientificly measureable effects!!
It is not us "debunkers" who are showing eh insecurity - it is all thsoe pepole who see something they do not understand, and think that it must be a
deliberate secret plan to do something inimicable - THAT is real insecurity.
