Whatever confirms things my brother told me a month ago


banditorama

Whatever agrees with my point of view /s Honestly, primary sources and places that don't try to spin things or have obvious biases. If an article contains the word bombshell or any other sensationalist fluff in it I don't trust it


ccrom

This weird trick . . . . What big pharma doesn't want you to know . . .


youknowwhatitslike

everyone on r/conspiracy be like: "can't trust MSM, gotta check NEWSTHRUST.wordpress.KANK"


HonestCareer8036

Primary sources *** The CDC and WHO have lost all credibility


FoulmouthedGiftHorse

If you want credibility, check out this meme I made that confirms what you already believe to be true!!


ccrom

Anybody with a camera and a tik tok account can claim they are a primary source.


Otown2020

Honestly it depends on what im looking for. Jama, jstor, pubmed, BMJ are for scientific studies. I always look at where they get their funding from. For covid stuff recently been using FLCCC since they are self funded, but that may change.

My intuition and nothing else at this point.


ccrom

The last time I trusted my intuition, I became a Mormon. My intuition can not be trusted. I've since learned that's a cult trick. You convince people to believe ridiculous stuff by convincing them there's an inner voice telling them it's true.


irlkro

Hahaha... that's funny. It takes practice, brotha.. but your intuition is in there somewhere.


rededitting

For those of you that are not aware, this is another shill sub. Most of the comments and responses you see in this sub are covid shills. They probably also work for crypto, and maybe the chat in some online games. This is how they draw information from you, so you can essentially teach them how to deceive you more intelligently. The more responses they get from you, good or bad, is all good to them. The idea is to restrict your opinions and concerns, that way they get nothing. Most people these days are counter-shilling anyway due to how long the “pandemic” has been going on. Just food for thought. Be the intelligent people I know you are and deceive them by not voicing your opinions or concerns. Thank you


TheyWouldntLieToUs

r/conspiracy as well as Most things that are not the mainstream media ​ Anything that flies against the official narrative Anything that gets banned ​ how am i doing so far?


LivingIn1984

Though one should certainly consider the source of information, I think it's best to consider whether the information itself is reliable, lest one fall pray to logical fallacies based on *argumentum ad hominem.*


BenzDriverS

Sources I can verify.

Listening to wise Intellectuals sharing their wisdom with those less learned.For example, here is a list of people who are far more educated and wiser than I, whose viewpoints I respect and admire: Thomas Sowell (An honest black man & Economist from the Hoover Institute) George Carlin (Honest social commentary) Theodore Kaczynski (Industrial Society and Its Future, Anti-Technology) Carrol Quigley (Rockefeller/Rothschild, The New World Order/One World Government, & the C.F.R) Benjamin H.

None 😂🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️


frigilio

No source should be taken at full value. Most sources are just telephone with a story repeated down the line. You have to find multiple sources and come up with a logical scenario based on expierence or knowledge of the subject matter. For instance you hear a story that bob was playing chess at the corner you might know bob doesnt play chess. Military intelligence is mostly gathered from open source materials and then pieced together to form the most logical story. If once pieced together its somethong of interest then you may put forth more assets to monitor the story.


nelbar

I have a hard time to put trust in a source. I trust [https://swprs.org/](https://swprs.org/) to some degree but thats it. I rather put my trust into the actual information and how it's communicated If someone says the Numbers\[tm\] go up and we all gonna die unless we do X, I don't have much trust. But if someone explains what exactly the Numbers he is talking about are and what could be done to prevent a bad outcome and why it could help, I have more trust in it.

RedeemedVulture

The Bible. You live in a world where "leaders" who act like they're taking orders from demons are desperately trying to inject you with a "vaccine" that suspiciously appears like a lead up to the mark of the beast from Revelation chapter 13, and this sub is full of people who seem to spend every day mocking and derailing conversations that disagree with the narrative. It gets weirder everyday, and lots of people feel like something big is going to happen. Lots of rapture dreams reported on youtube. Be ready. Jesus is Lord.


rvnender

Ahahhaahhahaha


RedeemedVulture

Exhibit A.


rvnender

Religion is the single largest conspiracy in the world. And you guys just eat it up.


RedeemedVulture

You know that or believe that? Are you implying there's no spiritual component to reality?


rvnender

I know that. Spirituality and religion are 2 entirely different things. You can be spiritual and not be religious.


RedeemedVulture

As a believer in Jesus I would argue religion is cold and dead. Ritual that means nothing.


rvnender

2 billion Christians would disagree with you.


RedeemedVulture

Two billion Christians disagree with me about what?


rvnender

religion being cold and dead


QisJimWatkins

Fuck no. I mean, the Council of Nicaea rewrote shit loads, and monarchs edited stuff they didn’t like and what about the gnostic gospels that are suppressed for plot reasons. No, not the Bible. Nope.


RedeemedVulture

The books that made up the Bible predate Nicaea and the Gospel message is the same. https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/earliest-evidence-christianity/

Ever read "Misquoting Jesus"? It changed my life. Of course, maybe you never want your life to change.


RedeemedVulture

This book? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misquoting_Jesus How did it change your life?


ccrom

That's the one. I started to think "unthinkable" thoughts. I found out there were ideas that my brain refused to think. It's as if the synapses would not fire. People have cognitive biases that cause reasoning errors. We take short cuts in our thinking because we are too busy to thoroughly think things through. Some ideas we avoid questioning altogether. They are part of our identity. If I change my mind about something that makes me "me", that is life changing.


RedeemedVulture

I experienced something similar but the opposite way. I was an atheist nearly twenty years.

Common Sense


ccrom

How is that different than confirmation bias?


Brilliant-Rice7693

We exist in a state of 5GW, 5th generation Warfare. The struggle of information and interpretation thereof. We literally don’t get source data ANYWHERE, it’s opinionated spin with preprogrammed bias telling you how to view it. The classic “experts” say that…… or “These Scientists are speaking out…” preprogramming and appeal to authority fallacy


ccrom

But did you actually say anything? You strung phrases together . ..


Brilliant-Rice7693

Small minds like yours need spoon feeding, I can’t help you, I can only expose you to topics that require your effort to further investigate. Are you 10 years old?


ccrom

I don't speak buzzword bingo. When Sarah Palin spoke it was like she was throwing darts at a wall covered in phrases that were common in John Birch Society circles. Sure she made some references, and some unsubstantiated accusations, but what did she actually have to say? And was any of it worth listening to?


Brilliant-Rice7693

I refuse to spoon feed you like a child. The internet is a vast library of content and if you had the slightest ability to navigate it, the stuff I have said made sense. I cannot stoop down to your simpleton level of understanding. My post was not anywhere near as bad as your claiming it to be. Maybe the fault lies with you and the fact that you're at square one here asking stupid questions, you're so late to the party it's hopeless, you might as well just go back to CNN and get your updates from The Most Trusted Name in News. I give up on people like you. YOu're called a SLOW ADOPTER, oh sorry maybe I should link that term for you, is that too esoteric?


Vast_Chip_3197

I prefer to rely on common sense


ccrom

What is the difference between common sense and confirmation bias?


Vast_Chip_3197

I don’t need confirmation for common sense.


ccrom

You are hilarious.


Vast_Chip_3197

I’m funny because I believe my eyes? I’m funny because I know to go inside when it’s raining and don’t need someone to confirm that I’m correct in doing so? Yeah I’m a hoot.


ccrom

You aren't joking? That's not funny at all.


advocate2020

james corbett generally. i believe the things he says and backs up, which is a great deal, but i do not automatically trust his interpretation of tue data. ie. corbett says coronavirus is a eugenics plot to depopulate us. i dont think theres enough data to support that interpretation on its face. eugenecists make for a great boogey man though. corbett says dont vote. i personally dont vote for all the same reasons he says not to. its larelgely an opiate for the masses etc. team coke team pepsi... but this could be a psy op to get us to never organize politically. so ya know. doubt things. even your own things... and so on. moreover corbett skirts things he cant directly prove and never mentions them. so you cant trust what he doesnt say as gospel that it isnt real. but yah generally speaking corbettreport.com is a really good resource for opensource journalism


ccrom

You must be aware of what the rest of the world thinks of [The Corbett Report](https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/the-corbett-report/). Do you consider yourself a radical outlier? Also: "you can't trust what he doesn't say as gospel that it isn't real" Triple negatives are confusing.


advocate2020

im just trying to be helpful. i find him useful, but i dont automatically trust someone, even when they do their homew9rk like corbett, because his interpretation of the data might be wrong or he might be predictive programming. thats all im saying. hes useful. dont trust anything all the way without examination.


QisJimWatkins

Nope, you listed reasons not to trust him in your very post. That’s weird.


advocate2020

im just trying to introduce him in a way thats useful. its really easy, considering how thorough he is, to go yep this guys on it. i believe everything he says. but i dont. and i dont want you to either. but hes a great source of information with a list of sourced documents where he got his opinion. so you know. use corbett. trust nothing.


QisJimWatkins

Nope. He’s a grifter. You can tell because you’ve already identified some of the aspects where he’s wrong.


advocate2020

doesnt mean hes not useful. the powers that should not be often show us their hand as bait and then try to distort how we interprete the data. for ex. q anon. doesnt mean there wasnt useful true things there. it just means its a honey pot psy op. corbett could be the same thing. could be different. could have some truth. certainly does in my opinion. just dont trust him.


senjusan11

Bible, so far prophecies, all of them, were fulfilled and those who aren't are on course to be fulfilled. But that spiritually When it comes to intellectually, I read research papers and I look for opinions of doctors and professors that are not allowed in the mainstream

senjusan11

https://therefinersfire.org/recent_prophecy.htm As I told,learn to read and to find information. I will not post here with my own hands what was fulfilled, there is too much of it so here you just got 10, all of them associated with nation of Israel. On top of that first seal of Revelation is being fulfilled right now.


QisJimWatkins

😆 I’m sorry, but no. Edit: the sheer arrogance of religious extremists who believe that they, of all the generations, are the ones who will be alive for the end times. Every time, it’s “in my lifetime” and never “we’re going to be dead by the time the prophesies come to pass.” Honestly, you sound like every end times preacher who either starts a suicide cult, slinks into obscurity or says “the date was wrong; it’s _next_ year.” Hilarious.


senjusan11

I don't know what religious zealots you are listening but these are not real followers of the word of God. Word of God is clear that even devoted followers of God will be killed and destroyed by the beast, only a small minority mainly in the USA believes in the false teaching of rapture before the tribulation. Every single true Christian knows that tribulation and death is upon them. Real believers know that they will be dead before Christ returns, only a small portion of the population will survive the tribulation period and this is what is in the word of God, so your whole rant is baseless and have no meaning.


QisJimWatkins

Oh boy. Listen to yourself.
