  1. You will not believe the claims this guy makes. He claims to be the strongest man in the world (by his definition of strength) in his 60s and all vegan.
  2. What is a UFO? It is an Unidentified Flying Object. It is a flying object that is not identified. It does not mean it's an alien craft from outer space. It means merely you don't know what it is. If you identify it as an alien craft from outer space, it is no longer unidentified; it is identified and should be called an IFO, Identified Flying Object. UFOs are real. There are flying objects that you don't know what they are. Alien crafts from outer space are not proved and not likely considering the extreme distances of the stars and considering they are not likely from Earth or from any of the planets or moons in our solar system.

    fake science

    Jeff Nelson did a series of videos about Dr. Fuhrman's claims. Here is one of them. This is on the topic of fake science, 'science' to peddle a product. You can get the whole series of Jeff Nelson's videos on Dr. Fuhrman's claims on the vegsource website.
  5. Loren Lockman explains why you should be suspicious of scientific studies. There is real science to find truth and there is fake science to market a product.

  7. This is the way I understand, or misunderstand, addiction. Hunger has been defined in the following brainless and sloppy way: wanting something to eat. Starting with this definition of hunger, there are at least 4 types of hunger. 1. Emotional hunger. This has nothing to do with need for nutrients. The person has an emotion and is responding to the emotion by eating. If this becomes hard to resist, it might be called an addiction. 2. Habit hunger. If you always eat at 12:00 noon, your body develops an expectation of food at that time. 3. Toxic hunger. This has nothing to do with need for nutrients. If there has been no food for a while, the body takes advantage of the opportunity to detox a toxic condition. Detox tends to be unpleasant.Eating stops the detox. The person mistakes the detox as hunger. The illusion that it is hunger can be strong. If toxic hunger is hard to resist, it might be called an addiction. 4. True hunger. True hunger is a signal from the body that serves notice on the consciousness that food is needed. Addiction to non-food things such as alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, etc. are similar to toxic hunger described above. When the detox is complete, the toxic addiction is gone. After the toxic addiction is gone, it is possible that some other kind of addiction will remain. Perhaps an emotional addiction like emotional hunger described above or a philosophical addiction described by Ayn Rand.

  12. This article is from the National Vaccine Center. It lists a whole major shitload of diseases that can be caused by a measles vaccine. DISCLAIMER I had nothing to do with making this list. I am completely innocent. https://www.nvic.org/vaccines-and-diseases/measles/measles-vaccine-injury-death.aspx Could we go back to the original disease that this vaccine is trying to prevent? Yup. It seems so. There are several items in the list that sound like measles.But what I meant was instead of those other diseases. Helluva deal. My diagnosis of the problem is government control of the doctoring business. Everything government takes over turns into shit. Under freedom, doctors would be in the business of putting themselves out of business, meaning helping people to get well and to stay well. Under government control, doctors are not in the business of putting themselves out of business. It's a helluva deal for both the patient and the medical profession but in different ways.
  13. This story is false. Islam is the religion of peace. No Islamic government would do such a thing. Muslims do not do acts of violence. Maybe some other religion but not Islam.

    Fallacy Bingo

    On the statement that autolysis of tumors is not well understood. Most if not all cells of the body have things called lysosomes. When these break open the cell self destructs. Perhaps this is the mechanism of how tumors frequently shrink or go away during a long enough fast. Shelton saw at least hundreds of tumors autolyze during a fast. Shelton writes that he saved hundreds of women from breast surgery. Other doctors have seen tumors autolyze during a fast. Autolysis of tumors is a well known phenomenon to doctors who have experience with fasting. Most people know little or nothing about fasting. During a fast (water only, no food) the body has no choice but to live on its own tissues after the food in the gut and the glycogen in the liver are used up. The body differentiates between expendable tissue and nonexpendable tissue. Fat is the most expendable; brain and nerve tissue the least expendable; muscle is intermediate. Sometime a tumor is consumed during a long fast as an expendable food source. There seems to be a competition between fat and tumors for being consumed during a fast. The less fat on the body, the faster the tumor goes away. The time a tumor takes to go away completely during a fast is highly variable. The average for a breast tumor, says Shelton, is about 3 weeks. The shortest Shelton saw was 3 days. If a tumor is very large it might not be possible to fully autolyze it in one fast and several fasts may be needed. There are stories, true or false, of tumors going away without fasting. All such stories that I heard of were about some form of nutrition therapy. Dr. Russell Blaylock says that sometimes the self destruct mechanism of cell is impaired and therefore the cell can't self destruct even when it should. And sometimes the self destruct mechanism is restored by ... guess what ... nutrition. To me autolysis of tumors is not all that mysterious. Learning more details might be useful but we have the bird's eye view. Some so-called experts make rationalist arguments to prove that tumors can't autolyze. Rationalism is a fallacy of reasoning well know to Objectivists. It means arm chair reasoning without looking at the facts. One rationalistic argument is it is not in the nature of tumors to go away by themselves. This is proved wrong by the fact the sometimes they do. Another rationalist argument is tumors are caused by impaired DNA and it can't be corrected; therefore tumors can't autolyze. Perhaps tumors are caused by impaired DNA but sometimes they autolyze. Autolysis does not mean the DNA is repaired; it means the tumor goes away.

  16. You all heard Yaron Brook and Leonard Peikoff on immigration and you all read Harry Binswanger on immigration. Here is Anni Cyrus on immigration.
  17. OL members met Magnus Carlsen here. Now you meet his father, Henrik Carlsen. He is interviewed on the subject of how to bring up a future world chess champion.

  19. Anish Giri is #4 in the April 2019 list of ratings. Based on his rating and his age (young enough to get better), he is one of several individuals with a realistic chance of some day challenging Magnus Carlsen's title. https://en.chessbase.com/post/fide-ratings-2019-4

    Open-Source Socialism?

    Some time ago on Objectivism Online the idea was put forth that Windows is capitalist and Linux is socialist. And Windows is so much better than Linux because capitalism is so much better than socialism. Seems to me a better comparison would be Unix vs Linux. In a scientific experiment you are supposed to keep all variables the same except the one variable you are testing. Unix and Linux are very nearly the same except one is closed source and one is open source. Another point is if we think of Windows vs Linux as a race, if it's to be a fair race the 2 runners should start at the same time. MSDOS started in 1981; Linux started in 1991; so Windows got a head start of about 10 years. Windows 3.1, released in 1992, was a graphical wrapper for MSDOS; then Windows 95 was a thing on its own, not dependent on MSDOS. Linux started with command line, nongraphical, then sometime in the 1990s went graphical and now you hardly ever see a command line but you have it if you want it.Seems to me Windows had a head start of about 10 years but in the foot race Linux ran faster and perhaps now is passing Windows in some ways. http://whylinuxisbetter.net/en/ Then to my surprise I saw this video. If Windows represents capitalism and Linux represents socialism, then what is happening here?
  21. If enough nonhuman genes are put into a human or if enough human genes are put into a nonhuman, at what point does this hybrid have or not have rights? At what point is this creature allowed or not allowed to own property and to vote? Philosophical questions for the distant future.
