Rarely BBC Ridicules Its Own Darwinian Programming – “Hunter Gatherers”

You see, the top guys know that it is all a scam, but of course they have to keep up a front by naming this skit: “the Origin of Job Interviews”, while secretly they are laughing at all you Darwinian dupes – all the way to the bank! Isn’t it time to engage your brain a little? Perhaps this little bit of true humor will do the trick for some. (I hope)

Very funny!

The NYT war on SCIENCE… watch how irresponsible propaganda gets paraded around as “science” when it’s actually pure bunk

[Including History Science…]

by: Ethan Huff

Image: The NYT war on SCIENCE… watch how irresponsible propaganda gets paraded around as “science” when it’s actually pure bunk

(Natural News) It will probably come as no big shock to Natural News readers that this past season’s flu shot was an abysmal failure – even more so than normal. But you’d never know this from reading a recent junk science piece published by The New York Times(NYT), which completely bastardized the findings of a Cochrane collaboration meta-analysis to claim that everyone should still get their annual influenza jab in order to promote “public health.”

Penned by Aaron E. Carroll, a professor of pediatrics at the Indiana University School of Medicine, the NYT article, entitled, “Why It’s Still Worth Getting a Flu Shot,” reads like your average vaccine industry propaganda pamphlet, complete with the usual shameless exploitation of actual science in order to make completely pseudo-scientific claims about the “merits” of flu jabs.

In his propaganda piece, Carroll admits that last season’s flu shot was improperly matched to the circulating flu strain, which means it didn’t help anybody, and likely harmed many. But because flu shots in general are so amazingly safe, in Carroll’s view – this baseless claim underpinning the premise of all that follows in his article – there’s simply no reason not to get one.

After getting that out of the way, Carroll proceeds to cite two studies published in the prestigious Cochrane database that he says support of his claim that flu shots are 100 percent safe and effective, always. But the reality is that neither of the two studies Carroll cited actually support this claim because he completely misrepresented their findings in his article – something that the NYT clearly had no issue with, seeing as how it was shamelessly complicit in publishing it.

The one study, as explained by Jeremy R. Hammond in a full breakdown of Carroll’s junk science article that was published by the World Mercury Project, actually revealed that the supposed benefits of the flu shot are basically nil. The second arrived at similar conclusions, explaining rather clearly that there is “no evidence that vaccines prevent viral transmission of complications.”

Ministry of propaganda: fake science, fake news, and fake facts

But Carroll obviously came to his own private conclusions when declaring that flu shots provide “a big payoff in public health.” Besides completely misconstruing of the actual numbers that were published in both studies, revealing that he likely didn’t even read them, Carroll proceeded to cherry pick only the pieces of out-of-context data that suited his agenda, publishing his own declarations about what the studies purportedly found.

“… it is curious why Carroll would cite the estimated effectiveness of the vaccine ‘under ideal conditions’ – which is to say when the vaccine completely matches the circulating virus – in order to support his argument that it’s worth getting even in poorly matched years,” Hammond points out in his damning critique.

“Why didn’t he instead cite the study’s more relevant estimate of vaccine effectiveness under ‘average conditions,’ when the vaccine only partially matches the circulating strains? … The most obvious answer is that relaying the review’s finding that ‘100 people need to be vaccinated to avoid one set of influenza symptoms’ would be counterproductive to his purpose.”

It’s the same type of thing that VICE recently did with its publishing of an article claiming that science has concluded that everyone is secretly bisexual. In this particular case, VICEcited a study that actually only found that lesbian women are attracted to other women, but contorted this matter-of-fact “discovery” to claim that everyone falls somewhere on a “sexuality spectrum,” and nobody is actually “straight.”

How BBC Deceives With Antichrist Lies About Champollion & Egypt

Courtesy Nathan Hoffmann

Here’s a clip from a BBC television mini-series called “Egypt” (episode 6) where they show an explorer from the early 1800’s, named Champollion, writing in his private diary that he found evidence that Egyptian history pre-dates Noah’s flood. The truth is, Champollion never made that claim at all. If you get his diary and read it for yourself, you’ll find that he was only claiming to have evidence that was embarrassing to the theories of his rival, Dr. Thomas Young. They used his quote completely out of context. (see page 188, paragraph 2, from “The Code Breaker’s Secret Diaries”) You can buy Champollion’s diary here: https://www.amazon.com/Code-breakers-…) Click here to see a scan of page 188 to read his quote in context: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3J7…

HOW Academia (& History Science!) & Western Civilisation Was Destroyed!

The Satanic architects of destruction, the lobby that seeded, ‘cultivated’, fostered, caused and promoted the destruction of the values and strength of Freedom promoting Western Civilisation. These demon possessed agents were Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, Erich Fromm, Adorno, Spock, etc. and all their discontented sycophants, followers, dupes, and useful idiots were their human bots to blow up the institutions, centers, and civil code, and government. And today we are witnessing the explosion with the pieces flying everywhere! It is the creeping process of the final end of humanity.  And these leaders were sponsored by the top elite. Well, draw your own conclusion as what you will do it.

How many got suckered into being Cultural Marxists

Liberals got suckered because they are betas and weak minded. They need to be told how to think. This is an amazing video of how the young got tricked into hating their own country. Who was behind it… How they want to destroy Western Civilization.

They actually prove it, they name every single name, they talk about the books they wrote admitting these people want to destroy America. Every single thing they talk about (mostly critical theory). Watch this. Less than 30 minutes. This starts out a little slow. If you need to trim some time off, start it at around the 4 minute mark.

WOW! I was WRONG! Were the Pyramids Built Before the Flood?

BECAUSE I WOULD HATE TO MISLEAD PEOPLE, I have to get this out before I write my retractions and corrections of our articles BASED on our presumed Flood Date of 2345 BC, which I now know is wrong!! I will have to correct some of our articles. I am so glad that Nathan Hoffmann found the truth of a 3000 BC Flood! It explains so much better the many mysteries like enough time for the Egyptians to build the pyramids and the Chinese to leave Sumeria!!! Our Chinese dating of 2300 BC for Huang Di and 2.200 BC for Da Yu and the beginning of the Xia dynasty are therefore correct! MUST WATCH!

And please DO  read our writings in the brighter light of this new true revelation on Non-Darwinian history! Please come back soon for a full article on this subject, or an update of this article. I sincerely hope that the dogmatists will not hold on to their dogmas, but will have enough humility to let go! (Hovind? Quayle?) We should not be afraid to fine tune our understanding, and submit to team work. NO  one is smart enough to understand everything perfectly! We ALL need each other and be humble enough to receive correction!

Nephalim & Anakim Longneck Skulls From Paracas Peru DNA Tested – Press Conference Feb 2018

On February 2, 2018, LA Marzulli and a team of researchers will present their work on investigating the Paracas skulls and their alleged royalty who were considered gods. Included in the presser will be the results of DNA tests done on over 30 of these Paracas skulls. Marzulli maintains that it does not rule out their hypothesis, which is that the tribes that were driven out from the promised land back in the OT days, migrated to the America’s.

But the official tax-supported, heavily promoted and propagandised state paradigm of Darwinism, forbids official (qu)academic research into this subject, because this would blow this Darwin joke right out of the water, as an increasing group of real scientists – even those without a religious agenda like David Berlinski – who are tired of this boring sacro-sanct state propaganda. How about you? Are you smelling the supernatural coffee already? Or are you holding onto an outdated paradigm, out of resistance.

Darwinist Russia Today RT Belittles True Ancient History in Anti-Noah Hit Piece

Some lightweight liberal Marxist at Russia Today exhausted his literary prowess on yet another ‘tongue in cheek’ hit piece to ridicule the proven historicity of the ancient 2345 BC Global Flood and its universally recognised Eight Survivors. This time “Noah used his cell phone to call one of his three sons aboard” and other such inane nonsense.

According to this scientifically challenged writer “The story of Noah’s Ark has been the subject of scrutiny and conspiracy theories for decades.”

IF the historical Global Flood – attested to by more than 700 global ethnic legends and providing the only sensible explanation of the mysterious ubiquitous 2 KM deep fossil-studded layers below our feet – had indeed been treated with scientific scrutiny, it certainly was not done by this inane writer. Read it for yourself! Continue reading Darwinist Russia Today RT Belittles True Ancient History in Anti-Noah Hit Piece

“Alternative” Russia Today peddles same paradigm & propaganda as all other controlled media @ “24,000 year old boy” & Ancient History!

by Lu Paradise • November 22, 2013

The academic world was “stunned” when the DNA of the “24,000 year old” Siberian boy turned out to have the same genes as West Europeans and Native Americans!

These “academics” should not have been so stunned, if they had studied history without any prejudice from the paralytic paradigm of Neo Darwinism, which makes them ignore/overlook/blacklist/obfuscate the following historical facts: Continue reading “Alternative” Russia Today peddles same paradigm & propaganda as all other controlled media @ “24,000 year old boy” & Ancient History!

Medieval Armenian Sibylline Traditions comprising the “Defloratio Berosi” of Giovanni Nanni

(Johannes Annius) (§§884-891)

  1. Go to §885, below, >>, for a translation of the Defloratio Berosi, and to §891, below, >>, for the original Latin. The Defloratio Berosi Chaldaica, to give it its full title, was divided into five books. These, according to Nanni’s preface to the Defloratio (fol. CIVb), were addressed in their original form to the Athenians, and were intended to correct perceived errors in their accounts of ancient history. Berossus is known to have been well received by philosophers in Athens towards the end of his life, after he had moved his residence from Babylon to the Aegean island of Cos. (Pliny, Nat Hist. VII. xxxvii [123].) The Defloratio differed in the above respects from the “Babyloniaka” of Berossus, several excerpts of which have been preserved by ancient authors: the “Babyloniaka” was divided into three books, not five, and was dedicated to Antiochus II Theos, the king of Seleucid Babylon when Berossus was still present in that city, before he moved to Cos and was honored at Athens. This is one of the principal reasons why the Defloratio was rejected in the Renaissance: it was presumed it was claiming to be the “Babyloniaka” of Berossus, and it was known from the surviving fragments of the latter that the presumption was mistaken. However, the Hebrew Sibyl known as the “daughter Berossus” may well have drawn on the writings of her priestly “father,” including the sources of the “Babyloniaka,” to compose “Summary Extracts (Defloratio) from Berosus (Berosi),” — as the title of the work should perhaps be translated, — of relevance to the historical inquiries of the Athenians.
