spentmiles: I went to a doctor once and he spent the entire 45 minute exam with his finger up my ass.  I guess it was a doctor.  He only spoke Spanish and I paid him in paper tickets.  But I felt good knowing that I at least had some level of access to health care.


Thanks a lot  El'Bama.

ParagonComplex: Why are out of body experiences there? They're nothing more than misunderstood lucid dreams. People swear to be damned they're real, but to them (and their minds) they are. The mind behaves as if it is fully awake during sleep, and lucid dreams are just as real as me typing this right now.


Lucid dreaming is lucid dreaming

Believing that your soul left your body and returned is an out of body experience (and bullocks).

Came here to say this because I've had and OOB.
/Way different than a dream
//Awesome


My OOB happened when I had a blood infection, fever, and nearly died. It was cool to be aware of what seemed to be duality in my physical self - yet singularity in my consciousness. I stood outside my window staring in at myself laid on my bed. I am aware there are things too dangerous to study, but I strongly  believe Out of Body, or Near Death Experiences, are more of an explainable phenomenon than some esoteric malarkey as people would want you and me to believe.

I believe in coyotes and time as an abstract
Explain the change the difference between
What you want and what you need there's the key
Your adventure for today what do you do
Between the horns of the day?

I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

Tellingthem: Kind of. They downplay it publicly but they still make the claims. From the ACA website


My doc doesn't care.
I'm one of 50 -70 patients he has daily.
My copay with BC is $25 until I max out my visits, which I keep to once a fortnight.
He works 3 1/2 days with three day weekends every week. his wife is a professional ballet dancer.
He makes really good money and gets to attend free ballet shows.
Me, I'm not stung out and he knows I have high blood pressure and only meds will help that.
We get along, his nurse loves me, and it's on the way home from work.
At a dollar eighty a day, I'm not complaining. I can still do stage fighting, and dance, and I'm not in pain.
He's not going to cure my alcoholism, and he knows it.

But everyone in the relationship is happy. that is what matters.

There is literally no way to post in this thread without  XOR Poe/Trolling. It is a logical impossibility to not be either/or, or both.

that said, Acupuncture should most definitely be off this list, as there is a large canon(decades worth) of well-established, properly conducted double blind research that shows that it has a  definitive, beneficial effects.

So that's a major flaw with this diagram.

"It's so hard to believe in anything anymore. I mean, it's like, religion-you really can't take it seriously, because it seems so mythological, it seems so arbitrary... But, on the other hand, science is just pure empiricism, and by virtue of its method, it excludes metaphysics. I guess I wouldn't believe in anything any more if it weren't for my lucky astrology mood watch."

Everytime I speak about my beliefs in a thread I get called a troll. Just because I come from a better class of people and have a higher education, people think that I am condescending. I merely want to help educate people in the error of their ways. People come on here with some kneejerk reaction to something menial and miss the point of an entire thread.

Some people have studied being dead in detail, since those who were dead and can talk about it are often revived in a hospital where doctors can quiz them. Here is a starter interview.

You don't mean "menial"; the word is "trivial," s**t for brains, and you should be taken out behind the chemical sheds and shot for misusing it, except that would be a waste of a bullet.

I believe 97% of Farkers are clueless, emotionally-driven moron with no concept of anything they haven't been brainwashed to believe.

the other 3% are badgered and ridiculed for trying to have intelligent discussions without all the drama... which makes them the dumbest people on Fark for believing they can have such a thing.

I don't have a problem with people having beliefs as long as they are not harming anyone or attempting to shove it down anyone's throat, and that goes for atheists as well.  I'm in the "I don't know, and having the arrogance to assume I know the truth is unwise) camp.  When my mother prays to St. Jude for my hopeless soul, I just say "thank you."  I don't get upset about it.  Aome atheists will get downright pissed about that kind of stuff.  It's weird.  They get evangelical in their atheism, they feel the need to educate everyone about the lack of science in their beliefs; and frankly, I start viewing them like the fundies when they start that.

That turns out not to be the case.  Or rather, it does have "beneficial" effects, in the sense that placebos have beneficial effects:  it's purely psychological, not physiological.  You can get the same effect by inserting the needles in random places unrelated to accupuncture points or meridians, using fake accupuncture needles that don't actually puncture the skin, etc.

Oh, I get it now. The diagram is for people that think it actually happened instead of understanding it as a lucid dream. You can chalk up the vast majority of everything in that diagram to simple lack of education/understanding.

meanmutton: meanmutton: MaxxLarge: Mythology is just religion plus time. Forever and always, 100% of the time. No gods have ever been real, or will ever be real... Period.

That's an amazingly unscientific viewpoint.

In case you're wondering, the scientific viewpoint is: No credible evidence has been put forth to lead to a reasonable conclusion that gods exist; thus, we do not accept their existence but are willing to review this conclusion should new evidence be presented.


"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

God doesn't need your review to justify His existence.  That's why He's God, and you're not.

As an atheist, I too find those types of so called "Atheists" to be annoying as fark.  They usually have some other irritating character flaw driving it though.  Same goes for vegans and hippies.
