A world ruled by the Scientific Method? Zeitgeist

Postby Scepcop » 20 Mar 2011, 23:27

Check out this clip from the film "Zeitgeist: Moving Forward", which is the third in the Zeitgeist series. It explains how and why the Scientific Method should run things in the world and manage resources. It's very interesting and contains a lot of good ideas.



Even though technically it sounds like a good idea, something just doesn't feel right with the notion of computers ruling the world. I wonder if Zeitgeist is a front for transhumanism, as some think it is. If so, it would be odd, since Peter Joseph sounds too bright and honest to be part of any conspiracy.

The movement seems to be moving away from conspiracies though, and is now very technical oriented, which they claim is being more "solution-oriented". I don't know. This film does contain a lot of truths, but something about it gives me mixed feelings.

I'd respond to this, but you'll never come back to thread anyway, so what's the point?

Scepcop, are you smart enough to know that some people who sound "bright and honest" are really ignorant and liars and that some people who sound dumb and dishonest are actually intelligent and truthful? You should NEVER, EVER, EVER, judge what someone says just because they appear to be intelligent and sincere. You may be right sometimes, but other times, you may not. You never know unless you fact-check which is something you don't appear to ever do.

Hell! It's all a "Conspiracy" -- everyone conspires to get something from everyone else, we really are the people our parents warned us about :twisted:

Seriously, we need to stop finding a devil under every stone, stop buying into the plethora of excuses this world gives us to be fearful and paranoid and START LIVING LIFE TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY.

This past year I've become so disgusted with all the FEAR IT ALL type advertising and the industries its generated like the I.D. Theft Insurance programs that are out there let alone the ambulance chasing "Lawyers" (more accurately, "Predators" with a law degree. . . something that's truly demonic). Then we have a growing, damn near Fascist Right-Wing Political-Religious movement that's hell-bent in making Armageddon a reality; forcing us all into a "Jesus World" idea that will make the days of the Third Reich look like a fun-day at Disneyland... and of all the Conspiracies out there, that last one is the most viable of them all because so few Americans have the balls required to STUDY and actually learn something.

With all the Conspiracy CRAP Winston keeps posting plus, the near constant promotion of some obviously questionable personalities. . . I'm really getting concerned. Is there a way to prevent him from watching YouTube and such for the next few months so he can come up for air?

What a waste. None of your responses address the clip or the ideas presented. Sheesh. Stay on topic. Arouet, as usual, you respond without watching the video. That's no better than me not responding.

Ummm, my response was to say I'm not going to bother responding because every time I do you abandon the thread.
