The Myth of Free Will, edited by Cris Evatt What Is Free Will? The free will myth says that humans are imbued with a “spirit” or “soul” or “some magical quality” that directs the brain’s decision-making circuitry. This ghostly, free-floating, supernatural agent can override our genes and conditioning. But how does a nonphysical spirit communicate with a physical body part? The free will myth also says, “You choose, therefore you have free will.” How Your Brain Chooses When you choose between a papaya and a banana, patterns of neural activity representing these two possibilities appear in the cortex. “Decision making is a competition, a dynamic process in which there are winners and losers. Who Says It's a Myth? The Bottom Line “The mind is what the brain does, and so every mental event, from falling in love to worrying about our taxes, is going to show up as a brain event.
ZMP 33 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True Most people can’t resist getting the details on the latest conspiracy theories, no matter how far-fetched they may seem. At the same time, many people quickly denounce any conspiracy theory as untrue … and sometimes as unpatriotic or just plain ridiculous.

Debunking Crackpot Science The Apollo 'hoax' Over 40 years after the first Apollo moon landing some people still claim it never happened, that it was all a hoax. And some do so quite stridently. I have long had an admittedly somewhat morbid fascination with the pathological reasoning processes that can produce such beliefs. Sometimes I wonder if they're just pulling our leg. Are they simply pretending to believe in these crackpot theories? The health and even the survival of any western democracy requires an educated and well-informed citizenry. Although our universities continue to produce many highly talented and skilled scientists and engineers to work on these problems, this is not enough. Most people admire the intellectual achievements of others and many are deeply inspired by them. Most Apollo deniers are remarkably unoriginal. If you find your blood pressure gets too high when reading the drivel put out by the hoax believers, these might help you unwind. Was the moon landing a hoax? xMax Tom Bearden's MEG

The Zeitgeist Film Series Gateway | Zeitgeist: The Movie, Zeitgeist: Addendum, Zeitgeist Moving Forward Charlatan A charlatan (also called swindler or mountebank) is a person practicing quackery or some similar confidence trick in order to obtain money, fame or other advantages via some form of pretense or deception. The word comes from French charlatan, a seller of medicines who might advertise his presence with music and an outdoor stage show. The best known of the Parisian charlatans was Tabarin, who set up a stage in the Place Dauphine, Paris in 1618, and whose commedia dell'arte inspired skits and whose farces inspired Molière. The word can also be traced to Spanish; charlatán, an indiscreetly talkative person, a chatterbox. Ultimately, etymologists trace "charlatan" from either the Italian ciarlare, to prattle; or from Cerretano, a resident of Cerreto, a village in Umbria, known for its quacks. Details In usage, a subtle difference is drawn between the charlatan and other kinds of confidence people. "Quack" is a reference to "quackery" or the practice of dubious medicine. John R.
Beware of ‘green scheme’ scammers! Consumers are urged to beware of scammers who call offering rebates on energy efficient initiatives or try to sell energy saving devices that don't deliver the promised energy savings. These days we all want to save money and help the environment. Unfortunately, scammers are preying on this desire to ‘go green’ by offering fake government rebates for initiatives like solar heating and hot water, insulation and water tanks, as well as fake energy saving devices.

How Mary Todd Lincoln Thwarted Her Husband's Kidnapping by Shooting Him in the Head "Abraham Lincoln was slapped three times with a white glove by a member of the Hapsburg royal family of Germany (Payseur family relatives) during a White House reception in 1862. The German royal family member demanded a pistol duel with the, then, President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. The blows to the face stunned Lincoln but he non-verbally refused to participate in the duel by bowing his head before walking out of the reception room. It seems that the practice of promiscuity was running rampant in many families in those days and the German King Leopold had, had an illegitimate daughter named Elizabeth who was sent to America, where she lived in a very comfortable manner. In the early or mid 1850s, Abraham Lincoln and Elizabeth began having sexual liaisons that produced twin daughters named Ella and Emily in 1856. The only escape route was to jump the balcony and crash onto the stage during the performance.
