One of the strongest paranormal experiences I ever had was feeling a kitty (that wasn't there) jump on the bed and walk over and snuggle up next to me. At first I thought one of my cats had jumped on the bed, I was certain of it. Then I looked down, saw no cat was there, but yet felt the last few footsteps and the snuggling up. My wife had independently and unbeknownst to me experienced the same thing. These events happened shortly after losing her most beloved kitty of her life named Buzzy and stopped after getting a new kitty that looked and acted very much like him named Stripe... http://debunkingdeath.blogspot.com/2015/03/dreamland-ghost-pets.html

BREAKING: FBI Sees No Evil In Hillary Clinton Emails, Yet Everyone Else Does

The FBI just "concluded" it's not going to do a damn thing about the raging pedophilia, occult worship, and possible trafficking/murder of young children outed by WikiLeaks and the 650,000 emails found on Anthony Weiner's laptop. Hey, man, guess they're "With Her." And with Satanism. And child rape. Because that's what is in the emails, researchers believe, and if amateur researchers on the Internet can lay out a convincing case for precisely what's going on, why can't the Federal Bureau of INVESTIGATION?

All respect lost. No different from the corrupt secret police forces in third world countries that side with the powerful incumbent or party, over basic rule of law.

BREAKING: Hillary Clinton Is A Satanic Child Abuser, Wikileaks Dump Suggests



Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman is a child abuser, based on new leaked Wikileaks emails pieced together by researchers. He and those close to him, including the Clinton family, may have also engaged in ritualistic cannibalism/sacrifice of minors. I so wish this weren't the truth. Hillary's entire inner circle is implicated; NYPD chief is personally DISGUSTED! More information: https://twitter.com/d_seaman/status/7...

Happy Halloween!

Included among this startling assortment of proofs for survival of consciousness beyond bodily death, is a flying brick which is deemed not to be a hoax by professional video analyst Slim Ritchie. As well as a rock inexplicably thrown without human assistance, or at least as far as physics professor Ron McTaylor can tell.

Very Convincing Intelligent Haunting Stories Sent from a Debunking Death.BlogSpot.com Visitor

There is no absolutely no logical reason to doubt the truthfulness (no financial or egotistical motivation) or the clear implications of the main account here. If only the so-called skeptically minded among us would simply stop the mental gymnastics they employ to defend a materialist worldview and admit that the account sounds totally legit. If they did this, then the only intellectual honest thing to follow up with would be to concede that Occam's razor dictates, based on the undeniable intelligent haunting nature of the case, that a spirit world of some kind is the simplest explanation! Are there problems with eyewitness testimony? Yes. If two people had seen the below described apparition then one might disagree on the dress color, but it's highly-unlikely one would have seen a car and the other a woman. And do people hallucinate? Yes. But hallucinations aren't able to predict future events.

A female wishing to remain anonymous writes:

I had a Victorian woman apparition send me the message "Fire, get out." When I first moved into a new apartment, she did it in the very beginning of my moving in, but I kind of brushed it off thinking I must of been tired with the move, shadowing from the window as it was an old Federalist Style building and I was renting the top floor. Like this photo, only this is not the building, but the small windows up top.



Anyways I got all settle in, loved the place, near everything as I didn't have a car at the time, so it really worked out, and might of been why I brushed off the warning, because the place was perfect for me at that stage of my life, I was 24. I lived there a little over a year when she appeared again, in the same place and once more telepathic to me said, "Fire, get out." A month later, my cat woke me up by jumping on my chest, and I saw an orange glow outside the bedroom window and turned my light on next to the bed to see black smoke pouring into my bedroom. Wasn't time for me to enter the Spirit World as I made it out, via some other very unusual events to do so. I am the ONLY one to survive as others lived in the lower parts of the building. Believe me, if I walk into a building today and it tells me to leave......I leave. I'll not make the same mistake twice.

Editor Question: So, you saw the apparition once or twice? Or did you just get the mental message the second time? Did she scare you or have you had things like that happen before?

I saw her twice, no she didn't frighten me, and both times when I saw her, I got that message, telepathic She was dressed in that black style of clothing.



Only she had the raised collar style of a dress like this.



I didn't see her face, she was like wispy or sort of smokey looking. But formed enough to see that she was a woman in this style of clothes. She was standing sideways to me, so another reason not to have seen her in the face with the raised collar. Both times the same, in the same spot......she just appeared, said what she said, then as steam dissipates she just lost more and more form until gone. Was all rather fast, she didn't linger.

This was the only time I have seen a figure and received a message together.

When I was escaping down an inside stairwell, that ran along side the building, but was still inside, the smoke was pouring up those stairs, I couldn't see anything, I was holding my breath. I had to feel with my foot down the stairs so I'd not fall, when I reached the landing on the 2nd floor it was really intense, the heat, and then flames broke through between the door to go outside and the landing I was on. The fire was roaring, sounds snapping crackling, I heard the screams of those who were dying, I heard a window break and thought they jumped (they hadn't) in any case I thought I was gone too. Should I go back up and get more air jump out a window too, and then I heard a voice inside my head that said, go forward. My thoughts said, but this takes me right into the fire. I heard the voice say again, "ye of little faith".....and believe me I wasn't and am not a religious person......today I'm spiritual but back then, not into the Christian stuff. Right after that ye of little faith, I thought okay, just make it quick if it's my time to die and as soon as I thought that I felt myself go in a trance like sort of place, I got really peaceful, I felt at peace. Strange, I was in the middle of this inferno and suddenly I was in complete peace my breathing slowed, it all happened fast, all this is happening fast. I then started to go down the stairwell, and next thing I know the door at the bottom flew open and a huge gust of wind blew in and pushed the flames away and I ran outside. No one opened the door, there was no one who was near the door and the fire dept listed me as a miracle.

It wasn't my time, the Spirit(s) or Helpers on the other side saved me and I've no doubt about it. Not sure who the woman was, I've no impression as to who or why I was saved, can't say it was any ancestor that had saved me or anyone special, just know that I was warned twice, and because I hadn't listened I was still saved. Since then, despite the 20 years of PTSD, I've lived my life in as positive way as possible, thinking as I was given a chance at life while others in that building even younger than me had not (I was 24) that I best use this time as positive as I could. I've never taken my life for granted, lets put it that way.

I saw once a building go up in flames, not the one I was in, and the next day upon going to work that same building was burned, it had fire in it that night......I saw it engulfed the afternoon before. Was just a flash of an image as I was driving by it. I turned my head back to the building and there was no fire.

I've felt "beings" but never saw them. Just that feeling like you know someone is watching you.

I lived in a house that the spirit made noises, I could hear the dishes rattle in the kitchen, and once I saw wet footsteps approach my bed. That for some reason bothered me over anything, and I shouted go away. Nothing more took place and the wet footsteps disappeared.

The door to the place I'd find opened when I came home, so my roommate and I had a heart to heart talk as I didn't want our belongings stolen. Was when my roommate also thought I was leaving the door unlocked or open, that I hadn't shut the door tightly. I mentioned the noise at night in the kitchen as it would wake me up and if they could be more quiet if they were going to do things so late at night. They said they were not doing things in the kitchen late at night, that they thought it was me.

There was an old woman across the road putting out her garbage one day and so I went over and spoke to her for a few minutes and ask her how long she lived there. A long long time she said, and I asked her if the house I was living in had any thing going on with it. She wasn't sure what I was asking, so I said, did anyone die over there inside the house that you know of. She said a man had hung himself in the back bedroom so it would explain I guess why at night my roommate felt a tugging on their necklace and one night it got ripped off their neck and thrown across the floor as they took that back bedroom to sleep in. I had first choice as I moved in first but when I walked into that room I got a strange feeling so I took the other room.

We both addressed the spirit, as we were convinced that is what was there and told them that material things most likely didn't matter to them but it did to us and please stop opening the door when we were not home. We also asked if the noise in the kitchen would stop as it was waking us up and we had to sleep to go to work in the morning, that if they were going to make so much noise with dishes maybe they could wash the dirty dishes while they were at it. lol

Thankfully, that seemed to work as the door was never opened again, and the noise stopped in the kitchen. So it seems our acknowledgement was enough, we use to greet the spirit when we came home, we named him George as we never found out the correct name of the one who hung themselves. George just came to us and perhaps it was George and is why that name came to us. In any case we'd go into the house and say hi George we are home. Goodnight George now remember be quiet in the kitchen.

I'm not so much believing in the "heaven" with the gates harps and all of that, that is someone else's vision, and maybe for them, if that is what they expect or desire perhaps that scene is there once they cross over. I know there is something after this life, sometimes the two worlds connect, as that woman came into my world to give me the message. There is much that can't be explained, but we will all shed our earthly bodies and we'll find out then. But I believe from my own experiences that there is a "beyond" for us, that we go on.

Cinemassacre Monster Madness X

Are We All Trapped Inside a Video Game?


Dawkins says we don't find people that can break the rules of the simulation and fly into the sky, but that isn't true! http://debunkingdeath.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-rainbow-body-periodically-updated.html... "Flying Away into the Sky What is described below is one popular version of the event that was commonly known to the elder local people in Tongde County. This version was known to most people and believed by most people. Our investigation, witness interviewing, analysis and verification were conducted around this version. According to local people, one day in September of 1958, a mass assembly was to be held near the Digan Temple in Tongde County to criticize and interrogate Khenchen Tsewang Rigdzin (Khenpo Chaiwan Runzheng). At that time, he was already in jail in the County Prison. Several small hills must be crossed from the prison to the site of the mass assembly. Several soldiers were escorting the Khenpo after taking him from the prison. Because of his handicap, the Khenpo was allowed to ride on the back of a red yak. When the group of five or six people were approaching their destination, an extremely strong and violent whirlwind (cyclone) suddenly took place. The wind was so strong that none of the soldiers could open their eyes. Their location at the time was close to the top of a hill, with a distance of several kilometers from the Digan Temple. After the wind had gone away, the soldiers started to look around. However, Khenchen Tsewang Rigdzin (Khenpo Chaiwan Runzheng) was no longer on the yak. Before starting the trip, to prevent an accident, the soldiers had tied the Khenpo tightly on the back of the yak with rope. All their efforts were proven to be in vain, because the Khenpo had flown into the sky, accompanied by several auspicious colored clouds. This event was witnessed by many people at the scene. 3. My Investigation If you come to Tongde County and mention the name of Khenchen Tsewang Rigdzin (Khenpo Chaiwan Runzheng) to people, almost anyone will tell the above story to you in similar details. Even though the story is so commonly known, I still decided to do my investigation from the start. My first goal was to clarify the doubt many people may have. On the other hand, I wanted to have the facts recorded truthfully. I wished to find out: did people put their feelings into the story so the truth got covered by kind lies? Also, between legend and fact, to what degree and scope can the truth be re-manifested? The people I interviewed in my investigation included some who were escorting the Khenpo at the time; those who were near the location when the Khenpo was flying away, including some eye witnesses; and a number of people who listened to the entire story from eye witnesses. When putting their words into text, I wrote down exactly what they said almost without editing a word. My goal was to let the readers draw their own conclusions naturally, without being influenced by the subjective and, possibly, already fixed thinking in my mind. I believe that this style of truthfully presenting the original narration would be convincing to the readers. My first interview was with the elderly Zhimei, who is 77 years old now. He was a local shepherd in Tongde County. He told me: “On the day when Master Tsewang Rigdzin (Chaiwan Runzheng) was taken from the prison to the site of the mass meeting, I was watching cattle on one of the hills he must pass. I saw several soldiers passing by with the Master. They tied the Master onto the back of a red yak. When they went over the top of the hill, I was with the cattle half way on the hill. Then, I suddenly saw the Master, in monk’s clothing, started to ascend from the other side of the hill. At the beginning, he was flying up slowly. Eventually he disappeared into the clouds. Many people said that there was a strong swirling wind and auspicious colorful clouds appeared in the sky but I did not see those scenes. This may be because I was half way up this side of the hill, while the Master had already gone to the other side. All I saw was that the Master flew into the sky. I saw that with my own eyes. I was still young then with good eye sight. It would be impossible that what I saw was some illusion. Years later, the charges to those jailed in 1958 were dropped. The Master’s hometown Hongyuan also sent people to request the Master’s remains from Tongde County. I knew that they would not get them because the Master flew away into the sky. I saw that with my own eyes. I told this to my family members but I dare not to tell the people from Hongyuan. After all these years, now as an elderly person of almost 80 years old, I am telling this story again from my memory. Do you think I would fabricate it to deceive you? I absolutely do not have any false statement in it. I do not have any reason to lie on this. In general, there are two possible motives for one to lie. One is trying to reap benefits from doing so. The other is being forced to lie and under pressure. My situation has nothing to do with either of these. That’s why I can guarantee you that I did not make any false statement in what I said.” The elderly Zhimei was an eye witness of the event. The next person I met, Chongpeier, provided detailed collaborating materials in many aspects. Also, he was the most talkative person among those I interviewed. Chongpeier is over 60 now. He is a local resident and currently stays at home after retiring from his job. He was a middle-level cadre of Tongde County. He described to me, in great detail, what he learned on this event: “I remember that it was a day in October of 1988. I was the director of the Bureau of Industry and Commerce Management of Tongde County then. On that day, when it was near the end of workday, a Han (mandarin) person came to see me and invited me to have dinner with him. At the dinner table, he told me his purpose of looking for me. His name was Li Desheng and he was from the Shangchun Village of Huangzhong County in Qihai Province. He came to Tongde County to buy about 500 head of cattle and lambs from local people. He wanted to ask me a favor of collecting less taxes and fees from him. He told me that he knew many senior officials in Tongde County very well, but not me. I asked him where he had worked before. He said that he has been a soldier in the security force of Tongde County and had risen to the position of a squad leader. While we were enjoying wine and dining, he told me a miraculous experience of his that was beyond imagination: ‘I saw a person who flew away in front of my own eyes. At that time, I and several soldiers of my squad were escorting that Lama from the prison to the mass meeting site near the Digan Temple. We tied him tightly onto the back of a yak and surrounded him as we were on our way. While we were climbing the hill and close to the top, he started to chant something that we could not understand. At the top of the hill, we ordered him to stop making the sound. Then we saw that the other side of the hill was flat land. Suddenly, many pieces of colored clouds flew over. The Lama got carried away by the clouds! Well, it was easy for him to get carried away by the clouds but we were left with the burden of reporting this event to the upper level. When I reported this to the county government, I was told that I did not accomplish my task and I had to write a report to repent myself. I did write that report of repentance.’ Li Desheng also told me that, after hearing this event, the Attorney General of the county was a little moved and said, ‘This is really very strange.’ Just for saying this, the Attorney General was removed from his position, because the higher level thought he was a superstitious person. Many people in Tongde County knew about the firing of the Attorney General from his job but they all speculated that it was due to some other fault he committed and did not know the real reason. Li Desheng mentioned that he told his parents about this and they held their palms together and respectfully said, ‘this person (Khenchen Tsewang Rigdzin) is great and incredible.’” Chongpeier added, “Normally he should be charged over 2000 Yuans of taxes and fees. For telling me this event, I only collected about 700 Yuans from him.” 1-Wherever possible, the names and places listed here have been translated as they appeared in other Tibetan-English sources. The transliteration of these names from the original Chinese article are also provided in parentheses. 2-Other accounts of this story indicate that Tsewang Rigdzin was a very big man, weighing over 330 pounds at the time of his leaving this world. It was not uncommon for people from this area to be over seven feet tall. 3-In another account of this event, it was reported that after witnessing the lama flying away, several of the soldiers who had pointed their guns at the lama became devout Buddhist. Although that article has not been translated yet from the Chinese, I believe from oral accounts that it was written by one of these soldiers. This examples given were taken from an article written by the abbot of Shangdan Temple in Tongde County, Huangnan Region of Qinghai Province. Before 1958, Shangdan Temple had been the home base of Khenchen Tsewang Rigdzin (Khenpo Chaiwan Runzheng) for propagating the dharma and benefiting living beings."

The Conjuring movie true story Ed & Lorraine Warren Haunting in Connecticut Ray Garton Night Fright

The Conjuring 2 Summoning Real Life Viral Demons Says Social Media

By Dustin Kemp

The news that an Indian man died while watching The Conjuring 2 and then his body disappearing has been making the social media rounds for the past few days now, but it is not the only spooky story relating to the movie that has social media users buzzing about The Conjuring 2 being cursed.

For example, a video posted on Twitter last week by a user handled “Rivaldy SB” supposedly shows the girl being possessed by some demonic entity in a movie theater showing The Conjuring 2. In the low-quality video, the girl bellows ungodly screams from her theater seat that sound almost identical to those bellowed by the possessed mother in the first Conjuring film while concerned onlookers (it is impossible to tell if they are strangers or not) mill about, muttering words in what sounds like another language.

Buddy Bits reports one of the commenters on the video claims to have been attending the same showing of The Conjuring 2 as the “possessed” girl and says that everyone in the room was terrified when she started bellowing. The theater actually had to stop the movie to let some people leave – hence the reason the lights are up in the video.

“I was watching the movie when all of a sudden somebody screamed after being possessed. It was so scary, the whole theater [of people] ended up not watching the movie and the one who was possessed was escorted out of the theater.”


The video has gone viral and has been viewed nearly 5 million times since being uploaded, according to The Telegraph.

The allegedly demonic incidents brought on by The Conjuring 2 are not limited to the theater, either; Week In Weird recounts that many people who watch The Conjuring 2 in theaters have reportedly said that they encountered hauntings in their own houses once they returned home.
The most popular instance of this that has actually been “documented,” did not actually occur in a house at all, but at a hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia. Damian Leong, an Indonesian man, claims in a Facebook post uploaded on the morning of June 11, that he and his wife had seen The Conjuring 2 together before returning to their hotel and immediately fallen asleep on the bed.

In the middle of the night, Damian’s story goes, his wife awoke him and asked if he was playing a prank on her. When Damian asked her what she was talking about, she told him that she had awoken a few minutes earlier and gone into the bathroom to brush her teeth, only to find a cross (one of the symbols used by the demon in The Conjuring 2) drawn on the mirror. Damian went to check the cross himself and verified it was freshly drawn.


A bit freaked out, Damian and his wife asked the hotel staff if they could switch rooms, and the staff quickly obliged.

When the couple went back to the “haunted” room the next morning to retrieve their belongings, they found that the cross had been erased.

There are many other claims of post-Conjuring 2 viewing hauntings going around the internet, but these two, along with the story about the disappearing Indian corpse, have achieved the most popularity. And because of them, a sort of urban legend has begun to surface that The Conjuring 2 is a vessel for demonic energy.

Many sources discussing the buzz point out that the first Conjuring movie complained about just these kind of supernatural occurrences happening after they watched it, and Universal actually hired priests to bless viewers after screenings in order to deter the events.

Although a priest blessed The Conjuring 2‘s set before filming started, the same priests were not made available at the movie’s screenings — could that be to blame for all these extraordinary happenings?
Or, as some more scientific-minded people have been theorizing, is this all just a hoax?

Coconuts Jakarta says some commenters have even been going so far as to say the strange incidents revolving around the movie are actually a guerilla marketing campaign organized by the producers of The Conjuring 2 to raise awareness for the film. If so, it has certainly been successful.

What do you think? Are The Conjuring 2‘s real-life hauntings bona fide or BS?

God Exists But Gawd Does Not David Ray Griffin


God Exists But Gawd Does Not
David Ray Griffin

Some Amazon Reviews

A Must-Read!   As someone who has read many books attempting to make theism plausible and relevant in the 21st century, I will say that this is the most robust cumulative case for God I have ever seen. . . . The kind of God that Griffin argues for may prove to be not only that magic solution to the perennial problems with theism, such as the problem of evil, but also a way to achieve what neither atheistic naturalism nor traditional theism have ever been able to achieve - the harmony of religion and sciences. This is Griffin's crowning work and is destined to make a great impact on the future of theology and philosophy of religion and even the way we live our lives.

David Ray Griffin has done yet again what he has always done best.    But no summary could do justice to the pilgrimage of discovery that awaits the reader in every chapter. . . . The final crescendo of this performance (the "postscript") expresses the author's sense of urgency about the need today for a true understanding and meaningful relationship with "God," and of abandoning the false idol of "Gawd" and the illusion of atheism, in the face of so many global challenges to human survival, especially that of climate change. In the preface of the book, the author confides that he "wrote this book with the hope that it would be the best book on the existence of God ever written." This could well be that book.

A serious and impressive work in philosophical theology.       In spite of the seemingly flippant tone of the title, this is a very serious and impressively researched study in philosophical theology. The provocative pairing of terms really helps the sweep of the argument become crystal clear: “Gawd” is dead, and in fact never actually lived. . . . This is a feast to be devoured slowly, and chewed on diligently. Each individual chapter, though a contributing part of the whole, is cogently self-contained. . . . [T]he Postscript alone—on Gawd, God, and the threat of global climate change—is worth the price of admission.

“Gawd is dead and never lived; long live God!”   Classical theism’s “Gawd” is the object of atheism’s attack on theism’s deity; however, atheists (both the old and the new ones) either do not know of the panentheistic God or choose to ignore it. After exposing the fatal flaws of belief in “Gawd” and atheistic materialism, Griffin demonstrates the truth of (panen)theistic naturalism.

One of its great merits is that throughout the book Griffin takes doubt seriously.    While not terribly long, this book is big in ideas and covers a lot of ground. In his criticism of “Gawd,” Griffin takes us through philosophical arguments regarding the problem of evil, the incompatibility between scientific naturalism and “Gawd,” dubious claims about supernatural miracles, and religious issues raised by evolutionary theory. . . . Equally valuable though is the work that Griffin sets out to do in the second part—namely to show that criticisms of “Gawd” do not lead us to the conclusion that we live in a God-less cosmos.

Profound and clear

David Ray Griffin is a superb writer on A. N. Whitehead; clearly an expert on Whitehead's work he has the additional ability to write about it with exceptional precision and clarity.

Is Your Reality Real?

JM Talboo Reviews Ghostbusters - Official Endorsers of Hillary Clinton for President 2016 - A Good Film Gone Bad by Aggressive Agenda-Driven Promotion


No major spoilers of any kind in this review itself beyond a few minor details and many of the links lead to spoilers. If you don't want to know anything, like even the mention of a ghostly character that appears on screen then best avoid.

The Bad News First:

I personally can say that I enjoyed this flick on the big screen a few nights ago with my wifey after receiving some free tickets. That being said, those responsible for this production, meaning everyone from the studio, to the director, to the actors, do not in any way deserve your hard earned money. Why? Because of the disingenuous and agenda-driven way that they have all promoted the film. The decision by the studio execs to get involved in the the culture war and surrounding politics was quite possibly not driven by genuine ideological motives so much as financial ones, but the aftermath is the same either way. And the director Paul Feig quite obviously is a man hating (male) Social Justice Warrior type. I recommend this positive review of the film that also attempts to psychoanalyze Feig, so as to, in the immortal words of Bill Murray, find out what makes him tick. As they state in the review video description, "paul feig is a lolcow. ghostbusters was cute. but is it worth giving money to someone who hates you (and himself)?"

I don't think the movie itself is anywhere nearly as tainted by an SJW agenda as Mundane Matt (below video) and others have made it out to be. Although some of those criticisms have merit, while other things are being  understandably overly scrutinized leading to conclusions of an agenda where they likely was none.

Another downside is that there are noteworthy amounts of really corny (not funny corny) parts and failed attempts at humor.

Next up, is the majorly overused CGI special effects, which is not in  keeping with the original films that by comparison took  a less is more type of approach, which makes the viewer appreciate the razzle dazzle moments much more. Furthermore, a substantial amount of said effects are cartoonish, very Disney's Haunted Mansion-esque and were an actual major cause for the early heavy criticisms of the film trailer, earning it the title of most disliked video in YouTube history. This innocent critical observation was among the things viciously and ignorantly spun into unfounded allegations of misogyny, see first link above. Case in point on the bad effects, is that Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man look better in the 1984 version. I recently rewatched the 1984 original and the special effects hold up quite well and are overall better than this film. The one exception in the original is the goofy looking claymation part where the demon dog is running around, when it's stationary  the animatronic version of the dog looks great. Now don't get me wrong, there are also some great modern effects that surpass anything in the older film as well,  some of which I'll get to in a sec. However, better visuals should be expected with the advancements in the tech available. This is why I say overall the effects are better in the old film, because they didn't use a lot vs this incarnation and what they did use always aimed and largely succeeded in coming off as realistic.

The Good News:

Overall I give it a solid 2 1/2 stars. It's at least as good if not better than Ghostbusters 2. The material that misses the mark in the laugh department is countered by a fair share of smile inducing and lol worthy material from some very funny ladies. I think they all did a great job and I particularly liked Kristin Wigg's performance, which includes a hip-hop dance performance that I found impressive and due to the situation it occurs in it got me chucking. I also thought Kate McKinnon's character was great, much wilder but reminiscent of the beloved Dr. Egon Spangler in her eccentricity and role as the brains of the brainy crew. Actor Harold Ramis, who is now decreased, gave life to Dr. Spangler and there is an Easter egg in the new film that pays him tribute. The cameos from the former Ghostbusters stars I also thought were great and did not seem out of place and forced as some have argued.  I also left the theater with the opinion that the criticism that Leslie Jones is playing a black woman stereotype is unwarranted. It was not the over-the-top cringe fest I was told so often to expect. She herself has rejected this notion saying that "if I'm stereotype, so be it." This was in reference to her character being an average Joe in comparison to the 3 other genius scientist Ghostbusters. I'd go one step further and say that from what I can tell she talks very much like her character in real life, so she's not playing a stereotype, but rather proof that stereotypes don't materialize out of thin air as do the ghosts in the movie.

One thing nobody has mentioned that I've come across, is that the 3D version of the movie makes the best use of that technology that I have seen and I'm a huge 3D fan. The film masterfully uses the trick of adding a letterbox to create the illusion of things literally coming out of the screen and the 3D is just really good in general. And contrary to appearances from the trailer, the film does respect the subject matter of the paranormal. They do a pretty good damn job with that aspect and made a pretty good damn film really.

I'm just one guy, but I bet I'm not alone in saying that if those involved in this film series can just keep the politics to a minimum, treat the fans with respect, and not turn a true misogynistic minority into a monolithic majority, that I'll pay to go see the planned sequel. I'll buy the Blu-Ray of this one when it comes out, but I think they deserved getting slimed at the box office.

In closing, another positive to come of this is having more movie heroes that don't exclude little girls having a Halloween costume option because the character dresses too sexy.

The Mandela Effect - Is It Real?

Some of this material is too dogmatic in its religious views for my tastes and I think the sections on Alex Jones miss the mark, but there is some really interesting stuff here.

I've done extensive research on the Mandela Effect. Initially subconsciously I was trying to disprove this so I could move on to other mysteries. I am highly skeptical, logical , scientifically scrutinizing and as meticulous as they come. My initial conclusions before understanding the full scope of the Mandela Effect was I was probably misquoting or mis-remembering things. In the vast extent of my research I have become absolutely convinced 100% the Mandela Effect is real. I have found 10-20 pieces of absolute PROOF that would HOLD UP UNDER ANY SCIENTIFIC SCRUTINY or in any court of law. If you don't believe the Mandela Effect is real you either haven't researched it enough or are a complete idiot simple as that. There is evidence out there that is completely undeniable even to the most bullheaded head up his own ass denier. Deniers opinions no longer matter to me in this matter as I know it is real because of the vast # of audio, video, personal investigation and personal experience evidence have completely obliterated any doubts in my mind. Here's just a few I am sure about; Kit-Kat, Jiffy, JC Penny, Chic-fil-A , Luke I am your Father, Mirror mirror, Berenstein, Mr. Rogers song, the geography of the earth specifically for me South America, Mongolia and Australia, the Volkswagen logo didn't have the space in the middle, Home Depot, Hitler, Interview With A Vampire, "We're gonna need a bigger boat" from Jaws, Forrest Gump's "Life is like a box of chocolates". The list goes on and on I could literally provide probably 50 or more that I could personally testify to having been altered or left behind in an alternate dimension. The deeper you go down this rabbit hole the more convinced you will become. You are not alone. You are not crazy. Keep searching for the truth. Happy 4th of July.
