Who could be an atheist while Chris Cornell is in existence?

Thanks Kat.

Quote of the Day:

The fact that Bell’s non-local, instantaneous correlations (Einstein’s “spooky interactions,” Bohr’s “influences”) have been demonstrated to exist surely makes the a priori probability of anomalous cognition an order of magnitude more likely.

  1. Satellite images reveal mysterious objects – Not Really
    These are Japanese concrete constructions from the 1980’s to maintain that area as their fishing territory as the island is almost underwater at high tide.

    …or,

    Maybe it is a alien secret UFO scout ship base,

    …from the geometric whirlpool on Saturn,

    Which was left over by Atlantens who colonized Saturn (before the Aliens of course) and AFTER they built the pyramids.

    That should cover all other possibilities…

    1. Janapese stuff
      The reef at those coordinates is Okinotorishima, a.k.a. Parece Vela.

      Accoding to the wikipedia article, all the features look like they were build by the Japanese, some between 1939 and 1941, others between 1987 and 1993.

      1. Japanese Stuff & WHO are real conspirators then?
        I asked a Japanese friend of mine what that construction was…

        On very GLARING note, IF this was indeed aliens, well gee they certainly aren’t the “Sharpest Tool In The Shed” to be allowed to be photographed and presented for all to see in Google Earth.

        Not to mention all the fine people at Google Earth would have noticed something as well….Hmmmm

        The sad thing is how many gullible people who visited that web site are now convinced that this is solid evidence of aliens on Earth simply because they never bothered to check Google Earth for themselves to read the place marks, look it up in Wikipedia, and of course the article never mentions or offers the other (correct) explanations…

        Rest assured now that other alien / UFO articles will embrace, reference and quote this (incorrect) article as FACT.

        While they point the accusing finger of conspiracy!

        Oh well…

        1. sharp people indeed
          Actually I sent email to those UFO people at that website, just to see if they react.

          I don’t have Japanese friends handy where I live now, more’s the pity. I would prefer to live in a more cosmopolitan place than my current location.

          But still, it took me less than 10 minutes to figure out what that place was, and I didn’t have to get up from my chair.

          Another glaring point: these are a bunch of concrete platforms, firmly attached to natural rocks. And easily identified. Yet some people want them to be Unidentified Flying objects. Yes indeed, let’s hear it for the “research” of this particular UFO crowd.

          1. Japanese UFO? Uninteresting Found Object
            I am sure that UFO web site will immediately print a retraction…

            “Research” indeed! This about the standard one could expect for many topics of this ilk.

            Speaking of ‘research’, Richard Hoagland’s ‘breakthrough’ (tabloid) space website http://www.enterprisemission.com/ is a fairly good example of consistently being able to find something out of nothing at all nevertheless it’s quite entertaining and worth a snigger or two.

  2. Do We Really Know Our History?
    Greg

    I loved your post, especially Stonehenge and China! They highlight the fact that we don’t know the history of the Ancient Past as well as we think that we do. There is evidence to suggest that the roots of Chinese Civilization go back 7000 to 10000 years. Except that Chinese Civilization is much older than 5000 years old, nobody knows how old it is. The Stonehenge article was interesting also. I’m not suprised! It fits in with a theory of mine.

    Thank-you for your post.

    What do you think?

  3. Just a thought…
    In re: The quote from Bruce Rosenblum.

    The concept of the “spooky interaction” is an interesting one but I’ve long held a certain doubt about it. In a nutshell, one of the implications of Quantum Theory is that any two hydrogen atoms in the Universe could undergo spontaneous fusion, regardless of their physical separation. In a Universe where such a thing is possible-and in order for Quantum Theory to work to the extent it does it appears to be possible-then how do we separate what is genuine coincidence and what is merely our reading significance into a situation because we want to see it?

    I’m not particularly familiar with Bohr’s work but Einstein did often let religious belief influence his thought but could it be that he read a grand plan into random events?
    “God does not play dice with the Universe”? Maybe it’s just that anything, literally anything, is possible? It’s just idle speculation since I doubt we’ll ever truly know but I find it amazing how many questions become simpler when god is removed from rather than added to the list of possible answers.

    cheers
