That was all the information I could find on the UN website - Other PDF files talking about lowering fertility etc.

The original documentation I read came from wikileaks.

A document with the UN logo on it does not make it authoritative, They have many group looking at many options. I've seen some interesting UN documents on some questionable topics but they are always dismissed out of hand yet still fall under the UN banner




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Talkiet: So you are blaming gun manufacturers and designers, NOT the people pulling the triggers. Cool - just as long as we've got that clear.

Cheers - N


I'm not ignoring you, but you are accusing me of false accusations there. Of course the people who are pulling the triggers are the ones to blame also.

Science will either kill us or save us...

Historically I'd say we're on the saving side of the Bell curve. But God knows what it's saving us from.....

As if there wasn't already enough evidence, here is a quote from the 1997 Secretary of Defense, William S. Cohen:

  • "Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves."
I'm sure people will still come along and try and tell me its fake. Obviously, they can't handle the harsh reality.

You quoted out of context:

"Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves."

In other words it is hypothetical.

Yeah I have lost count of all those quotes put forward as proof that have been taken out of context or re-arranged to alter the meaning!

That would be the 'Sun' then.

Any person thinking that they way to rule the world is to destroy it really needs to pedal over the horizon of their flat earth to visit with their optometrist.

It's getting very tiresome indeed.

Isolated quotes and misrepresentation of scientists. It's one of the lowest ways of pushing an agenda and a really dirty tactic, but it's rife in the conspiracy realm. Religious people do it with Einstein all the time.

Don't tell me the Einstein quote "God doesn't play dice" is out of context. That would be disappointing.

cgrew: Urgent message from Ron Paul:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHCkFPaePPQ&feature=youtu.be



Ron Paul huh?  The fellow that wants everyone to move back to the gold standard, and who coincidentally owns a significant quantity of gold which would just happen to rapidly and exponentially increase in value were the gold standard to be reintroduced?  That Ron Paul?

If he's saying something, best ask "what's in it for him?"
