    Discussing 5G EMF Concerns, Theories, and Conspiracy Theories

    Just going by the male rats, there's 1229 of them, and 7 Schwannomas, or 0.57%, if we say that 0.57% is the probability of an individual rat getting a Schwannomas in all cases, then we can run a simulation of that study. Doing a 100k trials will smooth out any variance. Here's some code: //...

    Debunked: "All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the NWO"

    I think the full original quote of "This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long - We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept...

    Discussing 5G EMF Concerns, Theories, and Conspiracy Theories

    Attached https://www.metabunk.org/attachments/falcioni2018-pdf.40227/ On the face of it, this looks like bullshit, but maybe someone can explain the statistics. There were 3/207 (1.4%) schwannoma in male rats at 50V/m, but 0 in the control. However there was 9/410 (2.2%) in female rat at...

    Discussing 5G EMF Concerns, Theories, and Conspiracy Theories

    This kind of related to what I was looking at in the "Measusring 5g" thread: https://www.metabunk.org/threads/measuring-5g-emf-and-using-icnirp-guidelines.11178/ The "Incident E-field" measurement of V m-1 (V/m) is the measurement in the rat study. at 1.8 Ghz (1800 Mhz) the reference level is...

    Debunked: "All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the NWO"

    "Prophecy Flash!" in 1996 attributed the quote to Ron Paul. No longer relevant snippet is available.

    Boris Johnson in ICU with Coronavirus Symptoms

    (source) Obviously I wasn't looking hard enough. But the QAnon people are so quick to fold everything into their grand conspiracies that it's hardly worth reading them. Here they seem to think Johnson's hospitalization is something to do with a hoax involving Hydroxychloroquine. Or that...

    And I'm glad you did, as I was considering doing it myself. So you saved me a lot of time :)

    [False] Claim that Scale Model of 2017 Eclipse Disproves the Heliocentric Model

    If your model does not match reality, then something is wrong with your model. I'd actually encourage people to do experiments like this. It can give some perspective on the actual relative sizes and distances in the solar system (and then it's fun to try to extend it to the nearby stars...

    [Fake] UFO's Casting Shadows On The Moon - "OVNI sur la Lune , 2020-03-26"

    Great recreation. But I think it's more likely they used a still image and added all the shake and atmospheric effects - based on the sudden stopping of the distortion seen above.

    [Fake] UFO's Casting Shadows On The Moon - "OVNI sur la Lune , 2020-03-26"

    https://www.metabunk.org/data/video/39/39520-5cfcc610c459d4b1e8725bf0e6b0b2b7.mp4 It's not perfect, because the changing brightness from the scrolling cloud overlay made precise feature-tracking difficult. But this largely removes the fake camera shake and does show the abrupt cessation of the...

    [Fake] UFO's Casting Shadows On The Moon - "OVNI sur la Lune , 2020-03-26"

    It's not constant, but it's never going to be zero in the daytime at that magnification. The effect they used here also looks a bit watery, atmospheric distortion is faster. Compare the UFO distortion with this: Source: https://youtu.be/FZCI2Pp-jLQ?t=38 Night videos can have more stable air...

    [Fake] UFO's Casting Shadows On The Moon - "OVNI sur la Lune , 2020-03-26"

    As noted in a YouTube comment, at 0:34 the fake atmospheric distortion is not applied, the moon suddenly appears solid, but the camera and cloud continue to move. This proves that it's a fake. https://www.metabunk.org/data/video/39/39503-6a0fa6b056fe3deac8b87d072505e62c.mp4 Credit to ARTMA DG...

    The other shadow isn't on the surface of the Moon, it's the unlit portion of the object.

    [Fake] UFO's Casting Shadows On The Moon - "OVNI sur la Lune , 2020-03-26"

    It's quite well done, with the correct moon phase, and appears like a good attempt at getting the lighting direction correct. It's a tricky one to stabilize due to atmospheric distortion. I did this one: https://www.metabunk.org/data/video/39/39501-579b8f70b8136737dbbc35018328f88c.mp4

    Discussing 5G EMF Concerns, Theories, and Conspiracy Theories

    It's some level 9 type stuff. Difficult to make it fit one category. There's New World Order, money, 5G, RFID, and Vaccines.

    Discussing 5G EMF Concerns, Theories, and Conspiracy Theories

    In my book Escaping the Rabbit Hole, I discuss how conspiracy theories exist on a spectrum of extremeness. I gave it an arbitrary 1-10 scale, with 1 being reasonable or understandable concerns, and 10 being utterly ridiculous fantasies. Any labeled theory (like, say, "Chemtrails") does not exist...

    Measuring 5G EMF and using ICNIRP Guidelines

    I was interested to see an EMF meter used bt Travis Tayor on the History Channel's new Skinwaker Ranch show. Instead of 5G, he was using it on a dead cow. But the misconceptions about what the reading mean are probably related. The meter, a Trifield TF2 (cost: $240) is set to RF, and seems...

    Coronavirus Statistics: Cases, Mortality, vs. Flu

    Not really, as we are different points in the curve. You could easily say someone with stage 2 lung cancer is doing better than someone with stage 4. But if it develops into stage 4, then they really did the same. At some point Italy had the exact same death/population as the US does now.

    Why Does the Sun Rise and Set In a Straight Line?

    To kind-of clarify that, the Sun’s path is curved, in the sense that if you hold a straight edge up to it, and all straight edges are straight in the image, then the suns path is curved in that image. Much like the horizon.
