Can you scientifically prove any of this?

swami is always demanding proof for anything thats not widely accepted in mainstream society. UFOs, aliens, mind control, telekinisis, telepathy, etc etc. so alex is dosing swami with some of his own medicine asking him to prove its going to happen showing that his claim is no less valid than other arguments swami so easily shoots down.

or am i just over analyzing this?

if anything he's doing you a favor ... would you rather have someone agree to every word thats comes out of your mouth or have someone question everything so you can take a second look at what you just said

almost everytime swami knocks an authors post ... the author will do some more research, either come back with a more through responce or just insult the man ... from there your concept grows or you throw it away as being untrue

this is what the forum is set up for ... to discuss and debate Spirituality, Philosophy and Science with other people with thoughts, reasons, and concepts different from your own. this isn't intended to be a a council of yes men ( or women)

like Socrates said "i know nothing" and that should be applied to everything .... even our own truths that give us the bit of sanity we cling on to.

Here's what my local paper says about 'em:

The shower is suppsosed to stream out of the constellation Leo after 11 pm tonight.
"The Earth will hit two clouds of debris this year. The first, which will occur over Europe, is composed of debris from the Temple-Tutt comet's approach to the sun in 1767. The second, which will occur over North America, is composed of remnants from the comet's approach in 1866.
The Earth usually passes through gaps between the streams of the comet, allowing observers to see only 10 to 15 meteors per hour. This year, however, it is scheduled to hit the stream more or less head-on, according to NASA's web site. It is predicted that this year, it will rain at 2,000 meteors per hour."
The shower will be going on over North America between 11pm tonight and dawn tomorrow. The peak of the shower is predicted to occur over North America at 4:30 am.
It doesn't matter which direction you face; the Leonids will be all over the sky. However, try to avoid facing the moon. Too much light interference.
If you trace the tails of the meteors backward, they'll point to the radiant (center) of the constellation Leo.
Hope this helps all you fellow shroomy star gazers!

would you rather have someone agree to every word thats comes out of your mouth or have someone question everything

The trouble is a lot of threads here are about spirituality. We all already know that no aspect of spirituality can be proved by science, so why waste everyones time asking for scientific proof?

It isn't a matter of agreeing it's more a matter of constructive debate instead of ruining every thread by posting 50 times saying "What scientific proof do you have" which is what swami does.

I beleive that swami has the right to what ever opinion, and I dont understand why people have to turn his nice thread into a SWAMI debate. I personally think that if you take a different aproach, then you will find the a lot can be learned from him. Discuss idea's, and see his way of looking at things. I'f anyone here truly understands spirituality, then they understand that enlightenment can only be found by comunicating with others, and trying to see things from a broader perspective. We cant deny that he is smart, so lets all bring ourselves to a higher understanding. That is why we are here in the forrum right?? To learn and have fun, and most of all expet other people. That is what spirituality is all aboot :wink: :wink:

Are any reports on how the Showers went?  I watched them last year but honestly I thought they were a dud.  Leonid showers happen too late in the year for me to get excited.  Standing outside in November, AND there was a pretty full moon last night, is not my idea of a good time.

I have witnessed hundreds of showers throughout the years and most of them fell far short of the prediction of how "wonderful" they were going to be.  I was a true skeptic and stayed indoors.

Science often promises more than it can deliver.

Do you remember the big write-up in Reader's Digest in the 70's on the coming of Kouhotek?  It was "predicted" to be the show of shows.  What a laugh!  you could barely see it!

And what about the return of Halley's?  I waited for that one all my life.  When it came I couldn't even see it.  Talk about disappointing. :frown:

I may have faith but if I do it is not in God Almighty "science".

phooey!
