    So those of us that dismiss your theory as absurd nonsense don't deserve to have our opinions registered as anything other than "putting our fingers in our ears and going back to sleep"?

    And he had a valid point.

    Or alternatively, they consider the 'evidence' to be tripe after giving it due consideration.

    The fact is you're the person who dismisses everyone's opinion as either the result of a closed mind or the result of limited intelligence/imagination, you're the one who will not countenance a counter opinion as anything but contemptible.

    You're all argueing with LEF ffs what's the point? Has he changed back from supporting Arsenal to support Wycombe again? :laugh: Nothing he says is worth taking seriously as he's away with the fairies now he's lost interest in ladyboys in Thailand. :laugh:

    He doesn’t have a valid point by your own reasoning - it’s something that only holds significance due to information available due to the internet, and so the situation is very different than when it originated.

    I am an open-minded person, and have been on both sides of this thing. For most of my life I’ve been clueless/dismissive of alternative narratives, and it was a slow process in accepting what I now come to believe. It’s not like you see one piece of evidence and it all becomes clear, it’s like going from one puzzle piece to another, until eventually the picture reveals itself.

    I wasn’t referring to you with regards to the first paragraph by the way - I was referring to people in general. Maybe you’d be open-minded enough to consider alternative theories, I can’t judge that.

    What? :confused

    You sound like the archetypal convert, zealous to the point of being oblivious to everything else.

    I don't have to do a dissertation on any dark web crackpot (in my opinion) theories to have considered them enough to dismiss them out of hand. :duke

    Hey mowgs, long time no see :)

    1. That was in response to you saying doc has a valid point regarding the dollar bill symbolism.

    2. What am I being zealous about exactly?

    3. So you dismiss the idea of the ‘Illuminati’, for want of a better word, because there would be info available due to the internet, but then you say you’re happy to dismiss the idea of it without looking at the information that is available on the the internet?

    You’ve proven my point. People in general have made their minds up and will rarely open it up to other possibilities that make them rethink how they view the world. I’m not bothered really as it will all take care of itself soon enough anyway.

    Yes, I know what I said.

    Your nonsensical pursuit of absurd and outlandish alternatives to facts.

    I see. So I assume you've read every single word ever posted anywhere on the net, otherwise you too haven't seen all the "information that is available on the the internet"?

    No, I've exposed the weakness of your position. People will indeed make up their minds, you're suggesting only people who change their minds to agree with you are enlightened.

    That's just another way of you saying "I'm right, everyone else is wrong".

    Can't believe LEF is still banging on. Stop replying, the guy is a complete goon.

    Germany's figures continue to climb in a depressing way.

    75,000 cases/day, 300+ deaths/day, becomes the 4th country in Europe to record over 100,000 deaths. :(

    I don't think the vaccines are working anywhere near as well as we'd hoped they would tbh.

    BBC news are reporting a new variant has been discovered in South Africa which is spreading like wildfire .

    Not sure how much scaremongering is associated with it but WHO are holding press conferences tomorrow.

    Yeah good point and all this isolating has put us back a long way against Flu. There's a really bad one going around near me atm. My missus has been bed ridden for a week with it now.

    Very worrying news. No confirmation yet but it has the potential of being the worst scenario of vaccine resistant and highly infectious.

    You have to assume that it'll arrive in Europe and then into Britain at some point like previous variants. There's so much illegal migration and rich people flying round in private jets etc so there's only so much border controls can do. So we just have to cross our fingers that it's not as bad as feared. And if it is, we can slow the spread down enough to get ahead of the game with tweaking the vaccines to combat it.

    Isn't that the second new strain to come out of South Africa? I swear they had one earlier in the year that ended up dying out.
