cgrew: A...call this a coincidence?


YES.

Coincidences happen. Often. Amazing ones too.


There's nothing amazing about this? It's evil. Would you want your kids growing up listening & dressing like this? I would hope not.

You can call it a "coincidence" but your wrong, its esoteric symbolism.

Of course it is also entirely possible that 'Hollywood' are just in it for the money.

And if the American taxpayer can help them out with scripting and hardware credibility then theres more in it for them......

Agreed, but don't you think it's something to be concerned about? That sort of occult symbolism should not be pushed in to society, especially for adolescents to imitate...

Well go complain to "the man" about it.

Would you like to see that "evil" pop music banned?

If you're ever bored and want a good debate about such things, I encourage you to maybe sign up at the ASF forum.

You remind me of the Christians who burned Rock n Roll records in the early days of rock and pop music.

What "occult" symbols are you so worried about? You're not into that satanic, child-eating garbage that David Icke makes lots of money talking about are you?

I remember reading somewhere that the best way to foil repeated alien abductions is to regularly rearrange your furniture, as that confuses them ;-)

cgrew: And Lady Gaga isn't the only one... Can't call this a coincidence?

http://vigilantcitizen.com/latestnews/symbolic-pics-of-the-week-070911/




I just had another look at that site, or as you call it, "sight".

What a load of absolute cobblers. Whoever wrote this article has picked a theme, gone looking for images that fit into it, and made up some rubbish about brain-washing symbolism. Considering the absolutely mammoth amount of art, photoraphy and music out there, it's hardly surprising they could find a few pics with "one eye" showing, or some horns. Heck, myself and my missus did some stuff like that just the other day with our camera... are we part of this cult too?

This is an example of the human tendency to spot patterns going completely over the top.

I implore anybody who takes this stuff seriously to seek professional help. Really.

If Extraterrestrial craft are visiting this Planet one would have to consider the following

1. Where are they coming from. As we have not detected any life forms or inhabitable Planets in our neighborhood of space then one must assume they
would be traveling long distances to get here.

2. If they are close to us and this would have to be the case if all the occurrences are the same Extraterrestrials then surely  we would have seen other evidence
like on the Hubble Scope or other detection systems being used to explore space.

3. If they are far away, given the Laws of Physics it would take a very very long time and an enormous amount of energy, refer Einstein's Theory .

4. If they are traveling vast distances and using enormous amounts of energy why would they not make themselves known and again if they are the
same Extraterrestrials why would they do this over and over again for no apparent reason ?

5. Given the level of motoring and surveillance that goes on Globally it is not plausible that any "visit" would be undetected or unverified.And given this
what is the motivation to keep these incidents if detected secret?

Now after saying all of the above I am sure that life forms do exist elsewhere in the Universe. Would it be recognizable for us? would it be similar to that on earth?
Life developed that way it has is due to the circumstances that have existed here and therefore life on other locations would/could have an entirely different set  of
circumstances making any life forms  very different that that which developed here. Why would they have two arms, legs fingers and thumbs like Homo-sapiens?
Our current form is a result of our evolutionary tree.

What has made the process of sorting out an answer to this is that Pseudo Science and conspiracy is rife thus clouding the matter.

An off-topic on the geekzone forum, I would have expected better than this? You know, those comments could have come across rather offensive BearningBeard?

Banned would hardly be the outcome for this sort of agenda deranged music but to what point are people or society going to say that this is unacceptable?

The poor are still poor & the rich get richer but to what point? Not all but a lot of society has become materialistic & selfish to the capitalist industrialized war-machine. We are constantly bombarded with this crap (Hollywood garble) Demon Heads in music videos? Promiscuity & sex pushed in 90% of all pop & clubbing music? Is society becoming desensitized to sex & violence? I think so.

And there are statistics proving just how this affecting today's society.

Anyway, I think that's enough said from me, clearly everyone has strong opinions on this topic, but I would of expected better, rather than getting stereotyped? Did I once judge you? Negative.

Peace.

I'm sorry, spelling mistakes do occur? Especially on forum pages. Would you like me to go through all of yours?

We're gonna be here awhile...

cgrew. Do you have any evidence for your claims? Not links to dodgy websites that is.
Also how do you explain the existence of those sites? If things were really as you say would they not be shut down? The runners "disappeared" by MIB?
Surely the very fact that there is so many sites and links proves they are all wrong?

And thats the problem....
Most of don't, won't, or can't, see this as any sort of symbolism. And we live happily ever after

The Ungeek. Text language in NCEA exams - Dumbing down society? Propaganda fuelled in media? - Absolutely, Truth in News broadcast? - Probability, Abortion rates ascending rapidly? - Yikes! Legalising Prostitution? - Yuck! Geo-modifying our food? - Nom nom nom, Geo-engineering our skies? - Uh-Oh? Global Warming - Yeah right? 9/11 - To what truth is there? The benefit for young single parents in this country? - Subsidiaries, Materialism - Gotta buy a new car? The love for money? - A must, Education? - Descending in a lot of areas, Justice System - Corrupt? Morals - Gone out the window?

Government that actually cares about any of this in a democracy? Priceless.
