Speaking of Trial Balloons....

A recent, apparently-hoaxed story had it that the American Psychiatric Association- last seen trying to surreptitiously normalize pedophilia- was trying to declare religious belief a disease. The question I have is is that a hoax story or a trial balloon

Most of the comments I've seen around the Internet seem to support the idea so don't be surprised if it turns out to be the latter.

I bumped this video to make room for that story, this very, very odd video from UNICEF, which like the APA is a Globalist organization used as a PR front for much darker and sinister aims and agendas. I'm not exactly sure what the message of this video here, other than the usual "be nice to be people different than you", but the use of an extraterrestrial(?) seems not only egregious but a bit self-defeating. 

But there are a lot of conspiracy researchers who believe that there is an agenda to "fake" an alien invasion and/or contact, theorizing that comes from both the religious and secular conspiraspheres, so this video certainly seems like a little more than an oddity. Personally, I don't put a lot of stock in those theories (I can't see the logistics panning out) and believe they are based mostly on old information, but you can never put anything past the Globalists.

Speaking of trial balloons, there's also this odd story:

EXCLUSIVE: 'Asteroids in solar system could REALLY be 'alien spacecraft' 
Duncan Forgan, an astrobiologist from the University of St Andrews, said it was a possibility that some objects we can currently detect in the asteroid belt could be huge UFOs. 
He made the claim as he argued that the quest for mankind to find alien life has not been a failure and scientists have barely scratched the surface in our own galaxy and even the outer solar system in their quest for alien signals or other signs of life. 
There are some astronomers who are convinced there is no other intelligent life within a close enough distance that will ever allow us to make contact, because research so far has failed to find any conclusive evidence anyone is out there.
I'm not saying there's any validity to this story either but we've seen an enormous amount of orb activity in the past several months, activity which is highly reminiscent of the foo fighter phenomena that presaged much stranger and more dramatic events in the days following. 

I was discussing orbs with a well-known researcher whose knowledge of the phenomenon is second to none and he agrees with me that they are most likely some kind of probe composed of plasma or ionized gas. 

Seeing that four out of five members of my immediate family here had sightings of such things over the summer I'd say something seems to be ramping up. As I told said researcher, orb sightings are so common they're not even news anymore.  

You see so much stupid nonsense about aliens and extraterrestrial life in the media I really wonder why people pay any attention to scientists anymore. We hear more and more how corrupt and farcical so-called peer review is, how nearly every single scientific paper goes unread (never mind tested), but then there is inane garbage like this:
Alien Civilizations Are Rare Or Absent, Scientists Say 
A recent study has shown that advanced alien civilizations are probably absent or extremely rare in our universe.
By Scientists had thought that such advanced alien civilizations could have been detected by waste heat, as these civilizations would have harnessed enormous energies on the scale of the stellar output of their own galaxy. These civilizations and their energies, calculated on a galactic scale, called the Kardashev Type III civilisations, were to be to be detectable in the mid-infrared  part of the spectrum due to the waste heat. 
But now professor Michael Garrett says that most of these systems present emission that is best explained by natural astrophysical processes. Garrett used radio measurements of the galaxies to come to this conclusion.

I used to joke that DARPA was just a fax machine and a subscription to Green Lantern but now it seems that these astrophysicists are just a modem and copy of Isaac Asimov's Foundation.

They sit there, living high off the hog on taxpayer money and conjure up these ludicrous notions about extraterrestrial civilizations that are based on absolutely nothing at all and then feed our credulous media horse manure, when they have no clue what's flying around past Pluto.

Which all of them should be doing since A., we'll most likely never encounter any of these far-flung ETs (I still don't believe that UFOs come from outside our incredibly vast solar system) and B., any danger to our existence is most likely to come from our own neighborhood.

What a con.

UPDATE: Typical DARPA con-job: Headline screams DARPA Has Made a Brain Implant That Boosts Your Memory! Story actually says...
The agency wrote in a statement their device is showing promise with improving patient’s memory tests scores. It is “raising hope that such approaches may someday help individuals suffering from memory deficits as a result of traumatic brain injury or other pathologies.” and....  
“We still have a lot to learn about how the human brain encodes declarative memory, but these early experiments are clarifying issues such as these, and suggest there is great potential to help people with certain kinds of memory deficits.”

  2. My intelligent, truth seeking father who suddenly passed away on the 21st August this year had involvement in making crop circles over the years and appreciated the sacred geometry/artwork. We get a lot of them where I live. My sister had a baby the same day as his funeral, so it's been said that's it must be a re-birth, although I think before a rebirth he may have done a bit of inter-dimensional time travelling, changed a few things, pulled a few strings, haunted a few people, battered me over the head with reality, in a loving way and been an orb and chilled out and played chess with some Gods. And all so he was ready to go through life on planet Earth again. It would explain some of the weird experiences I've had. I've been concerned about solar panels and how the spirit world is effected by them and it turned out one of the last things my father did was order and pay for solar panels for his house. I'd somehow linked solar panels to the bad news or been given a warning message. Life is magical in many ways.

    1. My deepest condolences for your loss. But at the same time I am firmly convinced that death is a transition of consciousness to another stage. I am a very firm believer in reincarnation and believe that our loved ones return to us. I've experienced it. It's a powerful thing.

  3. The We Love Science crowd will skewer something until they can appropriate it. If they can't own it, they will skewer again.

    1. They're being fed a lot of junk in the media, a lot of false promises to keep their faith alive. It's rather breathtaking.

  4. I don't buy the straight faked invasion-to-come theory either, but as I commented here years ago, the self-appointed skeptics would be the first to abandoned their skepticism if disclosure came to pass without firsthand evidence, referring to any remaining skeptics flat-earthers and the like.

    Hard predictions are nothing but a fool's game and most people making them are trolling for fools anyway. Obviously I love informed speculation, fascinating stories, and that which fuels both, or I wouldn't be here, so… what I reckon could lay the groundwork for a fake invasion would be a requisite fake disclosure, the object of which would subsequently warn us of an invasion at hand by others still out there but ever near. The build-up could play out for decades. Heck, in the meantime real aliens could reveal themselves unannounced. Or the fake invasion could be their idea.

    And while I agree with your assessment, Chris, about the logistics being untenable, so too are many a tactical machination that make the strategery behind whole MICMC go round. More and more of the whole shebang is nothing but a friggin ghost.

    1. I've seen the data on Corbett and so on and it's all old, based on old stuff with the very dead L. Rockefeller and so on. But at the same time people keep seeing strange stuff in the sky and recording it, so someone is going to want to steer that into a narrative. I just don't think they will be successful.

  5. The APA is trying to label religion a disease. Hm. Maybe there's big pharma behind this and they've created a pill they would like to see prescibed to 9/10 of mankind. A pill that opens your mind and gives you a clear grasp of reality.
    I would give it a try.

  6. Reality is as reality does. Maybe this is all part of that depopulation agenda I keep hearing so much talk about.

  7. The article I read about the "labeling religion as a mental illness" was so poorly written that I didn't know what to make of it. For one thing, that particular article cited the American Psychological Association, not the American Psychiatric Association; any journalist who's remotely serious about the topic of diagnostic categories would recognize that A Psychological Association is not the body that defines diagnoses. A second weakness in the general narrative is that spring 2013 was the release date of the new DSM -- several years behind schedule. If you read through that document, it's very clear that the authors intend for diagnosticians to take culture into account, and NOT include an individual's religious beliefs as signs or symptoms. The idea that APsychiatricA would add one new diagnosis less than a year and a half after they published a major revision, and reverse itself on cultural issues, doesn't hold water to me.

    As you have pointed out many times, however, the state of science journalism is pretty stinky. My guess is that someone, somewhere, misinterpreted a press release about an article to be published in an APsychologicalA journal in which the authors may be arguing something along the lines of "Some extreme levels of religious belief look similar to some delusions in some ways" (something that, to me, seems self-evident.)

  9. Exactly. It's the boy who cried wolf syndrome. Science reporting is getting so bad that hoaxes are slipping through unnoticed. But at the same time the APA also pulled that stunt with the pedophilia thing too so that complicates issues as well.

  10. The Garrett paper only addresses one type of hypothetical alien civilization, so-called Kardashev Type-III which exploits most of the energy of a galaxy. It does not rule out other possible types of ET. The headline is misleading, and your dismissal of the science behind the paper because of somebody else's headline is misleading too.

    1. Hypothetical? That's one way of looking at it. "Based on absolutely nothing but shitty sci-fi" is another. And no, I think these scientists knew the full effect of their paper here.
