I Believe

(This piece was originally written some time ago, but it seems relevant again when the US President is accusing those who are sceptical of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) of believing the moon is made of green cheese.)

I believe that in July 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon and Michael Collins remained in Lunar Orbit. These three men were my childhood heroes, along with the Russian Cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, the first human in space.

I believe that smoking causes cancer. I believe that AIDS is caused by the HIV virus.

I believe Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK, although I admit I don’t know enough about it to know why I believe that. Nor do I know enough about the assassination of Martin Luther King to really form an opinion.

I believe the Illuminati are a fictional construct and there is no New World Order, although I also believe that people in power would like more power, and some will do practically anything to get it. I’d never heard of Agenda 21 until a few years ago, but I know very little about it. From the very little I do know, it seems like it might actually be a good thing.

I believe that the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941 was a cock-up of the grandest scale on the part of the US Navy. In particular I do not believe any government would purposely permit their people and particularly their materiel to be wasted in this way.

I believe that Area 51 is a US Air Force base. I don’t believe there are any aliens there, either living or dead (although I did thoroughly enjoy the recent Pegg/Frost film, Paul).

I believe that the attacks of September 11th 2001 were the work of Muslim terrorists.

I don’t know enough about SARS to form an opinion.

I don’t believe a Flying Saucer crashed at Roswell in 1947.

I believe Princess Diana’s death was a tragic accident, caused by pursuit by paparazzi and her driver being under the influence of alcohol.

I don’t know anything about the Oklahoma City bombings and I’m not sufficiently interested to want to find out.

I believe Coca Cola is quite tasty, although I prefer lemonade. I hadn’t heard until recently that Coca Cola might have done some clever marketing related to changing the formula. If they did, then fair play to them.

I don’t know enough about CFCs to be certain one way or the other about whether they have a serious impact on the Ozone Layer. I have come across some bits and pieces in the past about CFCs and patents, and the timing of the discovery of the hole in the ozone layer, but I’ve not done enough research subsequently to form a definite opinion. I’m content that not using CFCs is, on balance, a good thing.

I believe that protection of the environment trumps financial concerns. The caveat is that I feel the Precautionary Principle as commonly stated goes too far and is harmful both to the economy and to the environment.

I believe that global average temperatures have increased during the past century. I believe that human activities have contributed to that increase. 97% of carefully selected Climate Scientists also believe this. I don’t believe that this is catastrophic, and I don’t believe it will become a catastrophe. I think that overall, warmer is better. I also believe that the climate has always changed.

I believe that Stephan Lewandowsky is a sincere CAGW activist, who believes that a gerrymandered survey aimed to paint anyone who doubts the CAGW thesis as a swivel-eyed loon will help his cause.

I believe President Obama’s recent comments are insulting, and far from convincing people of the rightness of his agenda, will serve only to divide people still further.

    I believe that in July 1969 – True but some footage\photos are fake due to probable failure to get some.

    I believe that smoking causes cancer. I believe that AIDS is caused by the HIV virus. – True : AIDS was developed in a lab, cigarettes do cause cancer, because of other chemicals like Arsenic and carbon monoxide

    I believe Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK – Not true. Prescott Bush CIA Mafia FBI Lindon Johnson killed JFK – JFK’s father had a hit put on him by Jewish Mafia, JFK agreed with Italian Mafia to get hit called off and he would return favour when in the Whitehouse, JFK reneged on that agreement, plus, Italian Mafia CIA and FBI elements were literally one and the same, J Edgar Hoover was being blackmailed, he was a cross dressing homosexual. 8 snipers, 16 shots and final head shot came from the storm drain in front of JFKs car.
    Lindon Johnson had his own sister murdered, can confirm that yourself.

    I believe the Illuminati are a fictional construct – Yes complete nonsense

    I believe that the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941 – Untrue
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/8932197/Pearl-Harbour-memo-shows-US-warned-of-Japanese-attack.html
    Also look up declassified memo detailing 8 point plan to goad japan into attacking, after 8th step, japan attacked, plan started with economic war by Britain and US via shutting Japan out of Asian trade because Japanese economy was too strong.

    I believe that Area 51 is a US Air Force base – True

    I believe that the attacks of September 11th 2001 – Yes but those terrorists were aided and funded by Saudi Arabia, as were the 7\7 attack.

    I don’t know enough about SARS to form an opinion. – Neither do I

    I don’t believe a Flying Saucer crashed at Roswell in 1947. – Me neither

    I believe Princess Diana’s death was a tragic accident, – I dont know, but No pro driver flips a car on a straight road, all we have are media, who are infested with intelligence agents, easily confirmable fact

    I don’t know anything about the Oklahoma City bombings – Very strange case, very strange circumstances, also Mayor of Oklahoma wrote a book prior about similar and character’s name was McVeigh. Very strange, dont know.

    I believe Coca Cola is quite tasty, – No idea, piss in a bottle. 😀

    I believe that protection of the environment trumps financial concerns. – Depends, needs vast elaboration and discussion, generally would agree though if binary choice need to be made

    I don’t know enough about CFCs – NO idea, but ozone hole was natural, recovery natural. Montreal protocol, useless

    I believe that Stephan Lewandowsky is a sincere CAGW activist – Noble lies are not noble, paper was nasty, reputation tarnished, paper was also junk, no data integrity poor methods, psychology studies are not repeatable, mostly bunk

    I believe President Obama’s recent comments are insulting – He’s an idiot who cant even speak without a teleprompter, a liar and owned by Wall street. Hope peddler, with hope you never have to deliver, and he never has.

  2. Marty says :

    Moon landing – capsule shot of earth. Claim: Camera was pressed up against the window. Truth, mistakenly released clip shows camera as at back of capsule and some of the window was covered, an arm seen inbetween camera and window, it wasn’t earth, it was only part of earth. At one point lights come on and illusion revealed

    This is what earth looks like

    This is Apollo shot – only part of earth

    Cannot be real

  3. Marty says :

    Big giveaway cloud dynamics, that is not a global cloud dynamic, not on your life

  4. Marty says :

    This puzzles me, if that is earth from a distance, how does this get explained, if you are on the moon here, the earth should full your field of vision, not be tiny ball

  5. Marty says :

    field of view for above image

  6. Marty says :

    Also pon Appollo shot where is Antarctica and or arctic?
