11 IMPORTANT MYTHS IN POPULAR PSYCHOLOGY!!!

One myth is that we use only about 10% of our brain. In fact almost all the brain is active all the time so we use about 100% of the brain, although certain regions of the brain are more active than others for given activities. MRI’s are one way to detect brain activity for different mental activities or different activated regions in the brain.

 

It is a myth that the left brain is more logical, analytical, intellectual, and the right brain is more intuitive, creative, and artistic. Both sides of the brain participate in analyzing, synthesizing, and intuitively being creative.

While it is true that some humans who do better in mathematics and science with much formal training, they tend to be more logical and analytical and their creativity and intuition is more firmly limited by objective rules and principles that guide their thinking. Both sides of the brain are used to function.

Artists can also analyze and synthesize what they are doing. Their subjective, impulsive creativity and often less formal training has less rigorous limitations. This results in many more mutant forms of creativity which are frankly very random in nature and often show a minimum of focused skill. You could generally say that artists are much freer or wilder in their thinking and doing than mathematicians and scientists but both sides of the brain participate.

 

It is a myth that there is ESP or extra sensory perception or psychic ability. Despite the fact that there is no scientific evidence to support psychic ability, humans love to think and believe that someone may be able to foresee the future and tell them what is in store for them.

The popularity of horoscopes is one indication of the gullibility of humans who fall for these predictive prognostications. Yes, there is coincidence that what the horoscope talks about or predicts is what generally or actually happens in your life on certain days. However, statistically horoscopes are less than 50% accurate which means that they are worse at predicting the future than a coin toss prediction.

Human hope springs eternal and one or a few lucky coincidences or events is unfortunately what keeps fortunetellers and gambling operations in business. One accurate prediction or a fake staged performance of many accurate predictions in front of a large audience can make many gullible believers in psychic ability.

 

It is a myth that subliminal messages can affect our behavior. Subliminal means something below the threshold of sensing and/or consciousness so if the message is visual and/or verbal we would not be aware of it realistically.

Yes, you could randomly flash a picture or part of a picture on the screen or flash an audio of a word and/or sound. This would register on our brain and we would be probably annoyed at the random disturbance, not be positively affected by it, and it would no longer be a subliminal message which we are not aware of.

 

It is a myth that adolescence is a time for emotional outbursts, stress, tension, rebellion, dependency conflicts, peer-group conformity, sexy dress, motorcycles, black leather jackets, and similar deviant behavior. Most adolescents from normal moral families do not have turbulent adolescences and those that do usually come from dysfunctional families.

Sure, even moral families may witness a few rebellious incidents such as clandestine cigarette, drug, or alcohol use, trying to fit in with undesirable popular peers, or inappropriate clothing and accessories. However, the vast majority do not have many such undesirable behavior problems, especially in nonwestern cultures where parenting is more formalized, better disciplined, and less permissive.

 

It is a myth that polygraphs or lie detectors and truth serums can accurately detect dishonesty or lies. Polygraphs measure parameters such as degree of sweating and heart beat but they are only about 60% accurate in detecting lies which means that about 40% get away with the lie.

Truth serum like alcohol reduces your inhibitions and you are slightly more inclined to tell the truth but the accuracy of truth serum is no better than the polygraph. The government still occasionally uses the polygraph on some of it’s high security workers but it is forbidden evidence in a court of law because it can’t prove anything beyond a reasonable doubt or close to 100% accuracy.

 

It is a myth that happiness is mostly dependent on our external circumstances. While it is true that there are certain things like possessions, great house, great job, plenty of pleasurable events, and much money which can bring great happiness in the short duration, long duration happiness is mostly dependent on inner drives, ambition, personality traits, attitudes, disposition, motivations, thoughts, and beliefs and not so much on external circumstances.

An external circumstance like divorce and death in the family can lead to some long duration unhappiness but in general we adjust to our own homeostasis or how happy we are over the long haul.

Yes, having some close and great friends are an external circumstance which has the potential to create great happiness but it is often because we ourselves have INNER integrity, are dependable, trustworthy, encouraging, and competent in our lives and attract other humans with similar characteristics.

Other humans, an external circumstance, make volunteering possible but it is ultimately the INNER satisfaction of helping others or a cause which makes the volunteer happy in the long duration.

A lonely household cat can be happy with food, water, sleep, shelter, petting, and a little exercise. Some minimally existing humans also don’t need very much to be happy if they have adequate food, water, sleep, shelter, clothes, alcohol, and occasional contact with other humans.

The truth is that both internal and external factors affect our happiness but the greatest source of long duration happiness is internal factors. Being optimistic, ambitious, driven, grateful, friendly, empathetic, courageous, confident, and being a perpetual thinker and doer trying to achieve short and long duration goals are internal factors which yield the greatest personal happiness under all external circumstances over a lifetime.

 

It is a myth that humans who are opposite in looks, personality, and beliefs are attracted to each other. It is a popular Hollywood myth which makes for interesting cinema but the reality is that similar looks, personalities, and beliefs result in more lasting relationships with spouses and friends alike. Our ideal mate or friend may be someone whom we ourselves would not attract because we ourselves are not as ideal as we think we are and simply can’t attract and land our ideal mate or friend.

Many of us like to fantasize how great it would be to marry a beautiful or handsome human with a great personality even though we are plain looking with borderline personalities. This is why opposites attract films get much support from the common filmgoer or watcher.

Yes, being too similar in looks, personality, and beliefs may lead to boredom but most humans are different enough to have slightly different likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, which makes an ongoing relationship interesting if both have an ambition to improve themselves in some way or have different goals in life as time progresses.

 

It is a myth that men and women communicate in completely different ways. Some women are more talkative than men because some are more social than men and have more friends. They also have a tendency to go into minute details about who said what to whom and what were the reactions. Men historically have been doers and not talkers on the job so traditionally women stayed at home and communicated with offspring and friends over the phone. Today both men and women work and lead similar lifestyles so the difference in talkativeness is rather minimal overall but may vary widely for individual couples.

It seems that women and men in positions of power interrupt conversations more often so it is not a characteristic of men only.

Women seem to be more perceptive of nonverbal cues than men or can detect emotional nuances better than men. This is not surprising because women have historically been trained to express their emotions rather than suppress them as is more common with men. Yes, it is acceptable if a woman cries but not a man in most cultures and this is just a reflection of cultural bias and conditioning. A man is supposed to control his emotions and a woman can be more emotional. Women in general and men with emotional intelligence can better pick up emotional cues.

Individuals differ in the degree of the quality and quantity of their personal communication but there are no glaring differences between how men or women communicate in general.

 

It is a myth that it is better to express anger than to hold it in. While some humans may initially feel better after yelling loudly, punching a bag, or destroying some property the long duration result is that it encourages or enforces future angry or aggressive episodes and prolongs the hatred of the subject or object of the anger.

Disciplining yourself to internally suppress angry feelings when they arise is the best policy. Taking concrete steps to reduce that anger such as counting to ten or delaying a problem for future resolution when the anger has subsided is the right thing to do.

 

It is a myth that low selfesteem is the major cause of psychological problems. Research has NOT shown a cause effect relationships between low selfesteem and problems such as violence, alcoholism, drug abuse, eating disorders, school dropouts, teenage pregnancy, suicide, and bad academic achievement.

Accepting this myth has resulted in rewarding trophies to losers in sports and falsely telling students that they are smart, great, and wonderful for trying and failing at important tasks. Praising humans when they don’t deserve it or have not earned the praise leads to humans who are deluded into thinking that they are greater than they really are and their sense of selfworth is corrupted or is highly inaccurate.

True confindence or valid selfesteem grows out of successfully achieving more goals than failing at goal achievement. Delusional selfesteem arises when we fail much more often than succeed at doing things and still have a great deal of delusional confidence in ourselves.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DEBUNK+

Debunk: v. to expose a subset(s) as being (pretentious and/or untrue) and/or exaggerated

I would love to debunk all the pretentious, untrue, and exaggerated myths and deceptions which exist and pollute social behavior but unfortunately I can’t do it alone. I desperately need your help in the effort because it can’t be a one man operation forever.

Read as much of what I have to offer as possible and select the subject matter which interests you the most. Freely use it to the best of your ability. You may be laughed at, ridiculed, harshly criticized, or even ostracized for your views but if you sense it is the right thing to do then by all means continue in your pursuit or quest and you will have a genuine sense of fulfillment if not achievement because you will know that you are right being a myth debunker!!!!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT PARADOXES+

byrdseedVisualParadoxes.key-1

Paradox: n. illogical communications only possible in mythological nonrealistic language

There are no paradoxes but only the use of language inaccurately. This example is supposedly a paradox but on further examination of reality it is not.

All Creatans are liars said by a Cretan so is he lying or telling the truth? There is no paradox because in the real world no one lies all the time or 100% of the time. Rephrased the sentence should read Cretans lie much said by a Cretan who is obviously probably telling the truth or it is an exception to the general absolute false rule that Cretans lie ALL the time.

It also seems like a paradox that something or someone created the universe. Then one can ask who created the creator? An infinity of creators? The way out of this seeming dilemma or paradox is to assume that time and the universe is infinite or that it has no beginning and no end. Frankly humans are just not smart enough to answer all the questions which they pose in a logical understandable way because no one truly knows what zero or infinity really means, especially mathematically.

Theoretical concepts in mathematics such as an infinitely small point in space having infinite mass, energy, and gravity are mythological concepts which don’t make sense because no one truly understands what infinitely small means and definitely don’t understand what infinite mass, energy, and gravity means in the real world.

Some questions simply have no answers and applying absolute word concepts to reality is really an inaccurate way of describing the real world. Language is fundamentally deceptive language which often doesn’t seem to make sense or is not absolute truth but mixed in with many exceptions to general or absolute rules called falsehood.

All mortals die. John is a mortal and he will never die. Obviously the second statement is a lie or a miracle or myth or an exception to the general rule.

MYTHS ARE PRIMITIVE, DECEPTIVE UNTRUTHS, AND FREQUENTLY DEFY LOGIC!!!

myths-and-realities

Myths are historical lies which continue into the present modern era slightly modified but myths nevertheless. They are primitive analogies which seem to make sense to the common uneducated human but to call them poetry which helps to make sense of the world and our place in it is untrue in many cases.

Even modern theoretical physics has myths or stupid unscientific analogy thinking with “bubble” universes and “worm” holes!!!!!! Oh, I know what a worm hole looks like so I understand what the physicist is talking about. Bullshit and totally wrong!!!!! If a worm hole analogy makes sense to you then you understand nothing about infinitely small points in space! Even the physicists don’t understand it!!!!!!

Myths are the source of dogmatic denial of reality the way that it really is and not the way that we would like it to be. It is generalized morality and not specific examples of ethical reality. Myths are absolute statements about reality and are not true in many real life cases. The worst thing about Myths if they are not total lies is that they are partial lies or deceptions which are bad for a logical way of thinking about the real world.

It would be nice if humans could fly like the mythical Greek Icarus with wings fastened with wax. He disobeyed his father and flew too close to the sun with the ecstatic feeling of flying and wound up killing himself. The moral to the story is obey your father and his warnings or shit will happen. It is not really a moral but a command to obey your father!

This is an outdated morality of father knows best and is inappropriate advice for the 21st century. Morality and good behavior should be taught with real life examples similar to the prodigal son in the bible but updated to 21st century living. The bible is another great source of stupid analogies WHICH SHOULD BE UPDATED and the analogies are not relevant real life example teaching.

I almost totally disagree with this deceptive quote which poets who still function with analogies love to do. Update poetry with real life examples and don’t use simple analogies and synonyms to get your point across. Poetry should die a just death because it is a deceptive way of using language and is the source of too much misunderstanding and untruths.

A deceptively untrue quote!!!!!! or contains minimum useful truth.

CHALLENGING MYTHS IS A NOBLE BUT FREQUENTLY A LOST CAUSE!!!!!!

download

A myth is a historical lie frequently held by millions or billions of humans and if you include yourself in that group then all the facts in the world which refute your strongly held cultural myth will probably fail, especially if you are an adult and firm in your mythological beliefs and interact frequently with others who share your mythological beliefs.

Challenge a human’s myth and they will automatically go into defensive mode and fight desperately trying to cling to the myth or trying to make it survive in their mind. Present them with too many opposing facts and their attachment to the myth will be intensified because they can’t process that volume of new information. Unfortunately debunking myths is only successful when the new rebellious generation is indoctrinated with opposing beliefs and facts which don’t emphasize the old outdated myths.

Santa Clause is a myth imposed on the innocent young and the creation myth of the universe is another one even propagandized by theoretical physicists. It is a myth that everything must have a beginning or an end or that everything is born and dies including the universe. Yes, stars and galaxies are created and die and are born again in other forms but does the universe which is infinite has to have a beginning and end? The universe has been around forever since time never started and will never end. Time is also infinite for the universe but not for mortal humans.

The myth that there must have been a creator of the universe is also absurd. If there was a creator of the universe then who created the creator? Another more powerful creator? The universe I believe had no beginning and has no end and has existed and will exist forever. Yes, things within the universe are born and die but not the universe itself!!!!!!

I may be one of a handful of disbelievers on the face of this earth who does not believe in the creation myth of the universe. But what are my odds of proving that I am right when the whole scientific and religious community does not hold that belief? One man against the world of humans on this topic!!!!!!

The scientific community will start regaining credibility when it drops the big bang creation myth and all the theoretical physics myths and stops claiming cause and effect relationships for statistical norms. Theoretical physicists are really haughty delusional priests pontificating to their believers or flock about the impossible, improbable, and unprovable and intuitively the smart humans are not buying it and probably secretly think it is much BS, but fear to be humiliated by saying that they don’t believe in public!

I BELIEVE THE UNIVERSE IS INFINITE IN ALL DIRECTIONS AND DID NOT ORIGINATE AT ZERO ON THE X,Y, AND Z AXIS AND THAT TIME IS INFINITE AND DID NOT ORIGINATE AT ZERO ON THE T AXIS. WHO WANTS TO JOIN ME IN THAT BELIEF AND EVENTUALLY DESTROY THE ENTRENCHED DIE HARD MODERN MATHEMATICALLY BIASED MYTHOLOGY??? WARNING!!! PREPARE TO BE LAUGHED AT AND RIDICULED BY THE BUREAUCRATIC DECEIVING ELITES OF THE WORLD AND EVERYONE WHO FOLLOWS THEM! OR PREPARE TO BE CRUCIFIED IN SOME SHAPE OR FORM BY ALMOST EVERYONE!!!!!!

9 IMPORTANT MYTHS ABOUT HAPPY COUPLES!!!

article-2580395-06423BCD0000044D-495_634x423

If you are both honest, sincere, dependable, communicative, affectionate, moral, with some common goals then you can potentially have a happy relationship despite relatively independent lifestyles, ideological differences in politics, and differing interests. The differences make for an interesting relationship and if you respect one another, get enough sex, and responsibly rear offspring then you can still have a relatively happy long duration relationship.

The 9 myths are because very few things in a relationship are absolute rules with always, all, or nothing but are ones with some if not many exceptions.

Happy couples can see things through each other’s eyes:

Happy couples always have a lot of romance:

Happy couples can resolve all their disagreements:

Happy couples need to have common interests:

Happy couples don’t fight:

Happy couples vent all their feeling to each other:

Being a happy couple has nothing to do with sex:

Happy couples are always in sync sexually:

Happy couples know the right and wrong way to make their relationships great: 

 

For detailed explanations of the 9 important absolute myths about happy couples Dr. Phil reveals the truth in the following link:

THE TRUTH ABOUT MYTHS

myths-and-realities-600x600

Myth: n. a historical lie and/or a theory which can’t be proven scientifically with measurement(s) and/or is not an accurate description of reality

There are many religious myths and even the scientific myths of theoretical physics. Social myths are the most important ones because they brainwash humans into accepting social lies.

Here are 10 examples of the most important myths which are historical lies or are theories which can’t be proven scientifically or are not an accurate description of reality.

You can be anything you want to be if you just work hard enough at it.

Truth: If you have an excellent memory, work hard, and have financial backing even then you may not be able to be anyone you would like to be. If you are not gifted or talented then your chances of being a world leader in any field is zero.

Any college degree is a guarantee of a good job.

Truth: In the technological 21st century many liberal arts degrees are job poor.

Eating fatty foods will always make you fatter.

Truth: There are plenty of normal and skinny humans who eat fatty foods and don’t gain any weight.

You can lose weight permanently by dieting without a starvation diet.

Truth: You may lose some weight by changing your diet but usually if you don’t cut back on your total calorie intake to a starvation diet then you will not lose as much weight as you want permanently.

All GMO’s will not alter the DNA of future generations.

Truth: There is already some evidence that what you eat can alter the DNA of future generations and since GMO’s are food then they can also alter the DNA of future generations and the danger is that it may be an irreversible and dangerous change.

The universe was created in six days.

Truth: Maybe the universe was never created but has been around for an eternity and will be around for an eternity. If it was created then who created the creator?

The universe was created by the big bang.

Truth: The assumption that something can be created from nothing or an infinitely small point in space is absurd.

There can be more than one universe with infinity as a limit.

Truth: One universe without an end would crash into all the other universes. Infinity is not a limit but is never ending.

Love can’t be defined.

Truth: Here is the definition of love:

Love: v. to sense a very intense pleasure for a subset(s) one cares about and the behaviors which exist with it and frequently desiring to (possess and/or interact with) and/or experience samer subset(s) for a short and/or long duration

Language is perfect and doesn’t need improvement.

Truth: Why does it take 18 or more years to master language for most humans when many animals can communicate effectively in much less than a month of training. Inefficient language with its complex grammar rules should be an archaic way of expressing yourself in the technological 21st century.

I included the last two as myths because I have accurately defined love and have shown how language can be improved to make it more logical and less irrational and emotionally biased in my evergreen truth book LOGICAL ENGLISH DICTIONARY.

THE FITNESS INDUSTRY IS SCAMMING GULLIBLE HUMANS

Fitness Myths
Here is a reprint of an article posted May 15, 2012 by momentmatters which outlines the
tricks used by the fitness industry to get you hooked on their product or service with the
mythological miracles they promise you like weight loss, hot looks, and miracle diets.
Posted on May 15, 2012 by 

The fitness industry has a spur of growth these recent years, due in part to illnesses like diabetes and obesity. And of course, thanks to Hollywood we all want to be hot. And that’s the promise of the Fitness Industry, be it a club membership or DVD take-outs – you will be hot and sexy when you buy their products and services.

You decided to join a fitness club. On the facade you saw beachfront bodies, hot, sexy, and sizzling! Expectedly, models are the lean and muscular ones. It doesn’t mean that they got fit in that gym, but seeing them makes you believe. Admit it, most people are visual people. Seeing what you want to be is enough to persuade you.

You may or may not notice, but the trainers are marketing savvy. You signed the contract and gave them permission to bill your credit card. Often times, they still make you choose your personal trainer. And you’ll see, some are more expensive than the others. Paying them more doesn’t guarantee you better results. It’s still all you, you do the work for your own body, not the jam-packed trainers themselves.

The next step is to measure your current fitness or health status. How can you know if you are obese, overweight, fit, or underweight? They measure your BMI (body mass index). This scale, created by the US government is flawed! It’s purely based on height and weight but what about fats proportion? What if you just have huge bone density that adds to your weight? And all other considerations are not accounted. According to this scale, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Michael Jordan are all overweight. However, it’s the most popular and easiest measure. But if your BMI surprised you, you may just have the body of Brad Pitt.

They offer the services of in-house nutritionist. They will give you a tease, and make the nutritionist assess your diet for the first time and recommend some changes. Diet and nutrition is common sense. Eat what the caveman eats, all natural and avoid processes and you’re good. Paying extra for nutritionists or books is expendable.

You got started. The leeway to steadfast weight trimming and strength building is the equipment and machinery. But you and your trainer will spend less time in it. Instead, your trainer will drive you to “stability balls, resistance tubing or bands, and balance tools”, more on exercises you can’t do alone. These trainers are told to veer away from constant use of equipment, because when the person learned how to use them (and it’s damn easy to learn), they won’t need trainers and will stop the service.

It’s a psychological game! They get you psyched up in the start, then when it’s been months and you do the same exercises over again, they intervene and re-psych you up to keep you paying the membership. It’s an industry, meaning a business. It doesn’t care if you get healthier or leaner. What it cares about is your money.

Their programs may not work out for you, really. Our genetic makeup is part of the equation, but would they say it? No. They trick you to believe what the best looking body is, but each of us look at our best differently. And then they promise you that the best way to achieve it is through their gym.

If you noticed nothing’s changed, or at least on the timeline they promise you, it’s also planned out. They’ll say that despite the program, diets and supplements they served, it all falls down to individual differences. It didn’t work out for you because it isn’t right for your body, and you keep on finding what works for you. Yeah, you’ve gotta pay them more.

Their gym is a breeding ground for germs, thanks to the sweaty bodies all around. From athlete’s foot to flu, they have it. And these clubs, if not all of it, are not mandated by law to handle medical emergencies. Some trainers can’t even do CPR. Thing is, we are prone to injury when exercising. And heart attacks, due to improper exercise or overexercise, will need immediate help in matters of minutes.

Fitness industry doesn’t have a federal regulation to keep private data. Doctors, psychiatrists, lawyers, all these professionals are ruled by law to preserve nondisclosure of any private information you shared with them. But the fitness industry doesn’t have that, and unfortunately you have to share your medical history to them at the beginning of your program. Be prudent as these people are free to gossip about you.

It’s hell hard to terminate a membership. Even if you communicate that you want to quit, chances are you signed a contract in day one and they’ll keep earning from you credit card even after you stopped. You better read before you sign, because if you sue them, they just present your signature and they win.

Sure, there are people who got their magazine cover body, and fitness clubs helped them. But not all trainers are qualified to be one. Their management will employ many to meet the sky high demand, and see for themselves if they’re good with being a trainer. If not, oh well, drop him and get another.

Even the professional and ethical can’t escape the demands of business, and what kept their growing bank account are some tricks here and deceit there to get you excited and believe all the miracles they claim.

I’m not implying that we quit our membership. Our body will always clamor exercise, and their services shot straight to that humane need. But you deserve to know all their secrets; and you can be fit at home, at work, at school, at Disneyland park, wherever.

THE LOGICAL SINGULARITY OR FLAW IN STRING THEORY!!!!!!

universe-expansion-r2d2-ars-technica

String theory attempts to explain the universe in terms of the oscillation of a wave between two points in space. The problem is the unanswered question as to what happens when the two points are shrunk to become one point. Does the wave frequency go to infinity or does it go to zero? In either case it is an unanswered singularity           question with no meaningful answer.

Yes, even string theory has a singularity with no acceptable answer so string theory and the limitation of mathematics with an inability to explain a point or infinity or zero will never be able to answer the great mysteries of the universe at the subatomic or cosmic level.

Presently string theory is basically stating that the universe is just one infinitely large hologram and I just don’t believe that this is a complete explanation of the universe or ever will be!!!!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER (ADHD)

adhd-childhood

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a problem of not being able to focus, being overactive, not being able control behavior, or a combination of these. Many children with discipline problems have these same symptoms so many of the pure discipline problems are being misdiagnosed with ADHD.

ADHD is present in adults and in young offspring and it is frequently being misdiagnosed and treated with drugs with undesirable side effects. Many young offspring with discipline problems are being drugged to try and calm them down instead of applying appropriate discipline and exercise and healthy eating in the home and school environment. Psychiatrists are to blame for many misdiagnoses since they frequently attempt to do a quick fix of the discipline problem with drugs and not behavior modification which is what is really needed in most of the cases which are not that severe.

Humans are a diverse group with physically active pasts and hyperactivity is actually an advantage in nature. Unfortunately hyperactivity is frowned upon in the sedentary culture which we are trying to create and forcing normal “ADHD” human beings to function abnormally in a class or office setting.

Primitive societies have almost no ADHD problems so the diagnosis and treatment is a sign of an unhealthy sedentary modern society which tries to discipline the active behavioral deviants with sedative drugs.

There are many myths surrounding ADHD and this link at additudemag.com is trying to debunk 31 of them:

8 MYTHS ABOUT GREAT SALESPEOPLE

hs-pano_22139

The 8 myths are as follows and you may at first disagree or agree:

 

Great salespeople are fast talking pushy extroverts

 

Great salespeople have strong academic backgrounds

 

Great salespeople make great sales managers

 

You can transform a good salesperson into a great one

 

Great salespeople want to be promoted in the company

 

Great salespeople can sell anything to anyone and will be outstanding in any selling job

 

The internet eliminates the need for great salespeople

 

A great product or great engineering makes great salespeople unnecessary

There are some relatively rare exceptions to these rules or general principles because people are complex and not totally predictable in every circumstance. For example there may be the rare great salesperson who acquires a managerial education and goes on to become a great manager also.

There may be the relatively rare academician who also has developed people skills or is very good at communicating with people and can transform him or her self into a great salesperson.

There may be an internet ad or video which is so compelling and convincing that intervention by a great salesperson is not necessary and the product or service will sell itself without further human sales assistance.

Humans can have multiple skills and be good at more than one job or profession so absolute rules for them do not always apply.

The truth or general principles or rules about these 8 myths which have rare exceptions is written up in Inc.com by Geoffrey James whose link follows:

6 CAR MYTHS WHICH WASTE YOUR MONEY

SmartCarPlain

MYTH: CHANGE YOUR OIL EVERY 3000 MILES OR 5000 KILOMETERS

The truth is that synthetic oils can last from 7500 miles to 20,000 miles or 12,000 to 32,000 kilometers depending on the type that your car manufacturer recommends.  Check where you change the oil and find out how long it is designed to last and make adjustments. If you wind up changing your oil every 15,000 miles you may wind up saving as much as 80% on your oil changes.

MYTH: WARM UP YOUR ENGINE BEFORE YOU DRIVE ON COLD DAYS

There is much more cold wear and tear if you idle the car on a very cold day because it takes the oil longer to heat up on a cold day.  If you start to drive it right away then the oil will heat up much faster and there will be less TOTAL wear and tear on the moving engine parts.

MYTH: ADD EXTRA FUEL ADDITIVES FOR YOUR ENGINE

Since 1995 manufacturers have been required to add fuel additives to gasoline which are designed to clean your engine of unwanted engine deposits so adding more is just wasting your money and your engine will not run any cleaner.

MYTH: GET REGULAR ENGINE TUNEUPS

With fuel injection cars and computer chips making fine tuning adjustments to your car all that you really need is to change your spark plugs and air filter about every 50,000 miles or 80,000 kilometers.

MYTH: WINTERIZE YOUR CAR

If you are using 5W-30 oil then it is good for summer or winter and year round radiator fluid is rated to go as low as -34 degrees Fahrenheit or -36 degrees celcius so you really don’t need to winterize your year round car.

MYTH: HIGH OCTANE GASOLINE IS BETTER FOR YOUR ENGINE

It is a myth that higher octane means that your car will have more power, better mileage, and run smoother. Only a very small percentage of high performance cars will knock or detonate with lower octane gas because they have high compression ratios which normal cars do not. The rest of the cars do very well on regular or 87 octane which is closer to 90 octane with ethanol added. A high octane sounds sexy because it is a bigger number but the truth is that you are just wasting your money with no increase in car performance, smoothness, or mileage economy.

10 POPULAR HEALTH MYTHS DISPROVED BY SCIENCE

120490_v1

Myth: Eating too many calories will make you fat

Your genetic makeup, the type of food which you eat, and how much food you eat are the most important factors in weight gain and how much you eat is only third on the list of priorities which determine how much you will weigh.

About 30% of the population can overeat on a regular basis and will only put on about 5 or 10 pounds of weight and no more. The rest of the population will overeat and put on many more pounds but will stabilize at some weight and gain no more.

If you are programmed genetically to gain more weight as you get older then you will gain weight no matter what you eat unless it is a starvation diet. The unfair fact of life is that most humans gain weight sooner or later on normal healthy diets and it is a fact of life which is not accepted by society at large which is brainwashing humans into thinking that they should conform to a normal weight or be considered bad gluttonous human pigs.

Eating highly processed or refined foods with much sugar content is the second leading cause of obesity because the foods no longer have a natural balance of nutrients and destabilize a healthy metabolism which results in excessive unnatural weight gain. Humans are getting more obese because they are no longer eating a healthy natural balance of food nutrients which comes from a varied diet of natural food intake.

Truth: Your genes and how natural is the food that you eat are much more important factors which determine how much you weigh and will weigh in the future.

Myth: Fatty food makes you fat

Then why are there skinny and “normal” weight humans, about 30% of the population, who eat fatty foods and stay thin? It is your genetic inheritance which programs how fat your body gets and not how much fat you consume. In fact eating fatty foods means that you will feel satiated sooner and not eat as much. Eating anything in excess will make humans gain weight if their metabolism is programmed to gain weight and skinny humans can eat incredible amounts of fat and not get fat at all.

Myth: Carbohydrates make you fat

Great quantities of greatly processed carbohydrates, especially sugar or high fructose corn syrup will mess up your natural metabolism and make you overeat. If you are genetically programmed to gain weight then you will gain more weight than usual because you will be taking in many more calories than what your body needs to maintain a constant weight. If you are of normal weight then the only drawback of eating too much sugar in your diet will be possible diabetes since your natural metabolism will be put out of balance.

Myth: MSG in moderation is harmful

Direct injections of MSG into mice brains can have bad effects but the quantities of MSG found in human food is not unhealthy unless you are allergic to it which is a rarity.

Myth: Gluten free foods are healthier

Unless you have celiacs disease or are allergic to gluten then you can process gluten in your diet without any adverse effects on your health.

Myth: You must poop daily

The frequency of pooping is not important as long as you are not constipated or have watery stool which means that you should change your diet to a more natural one higher in fiber.

Myth: Microwaving kills the nutrients in food

Any nutrient which is killed by an increase in water temperature to boiling or below boiling will occur but the nutrients affected are the same as those killed by boiling food.

Myth: Spot training will help to eliminate fat locally

Any fat which you lose is from the entire body. Trying to lose fat in only one area of the body such as the stomach with sit-ups will not succeed.

Myth: Checking the scale is a good way to monitor your weight loss

After exercise you will lose much more water and almost no fat so a weight loss of one or two pounds is mostly water and not fat since your body uses up its stores of glycogen in the muscles before it starts breaking down fat cells in the body for energy. How you feel is much more important than what you weigh. You will not lose weight by exercising but you will feel much better after doing so.

WHAT EXERCISE DO YOU REALLY NEED?

stretching-exercise-hd-desktop-wallpaper

It is a great myth that you have to exercise in a gym with artificial machines to get optimal health benefits and lose weight. Exercising using natural body movements to tone your body is all that you really need to stay healthy and no amount of exercise will make you lose weight permanently. 

 

Only a starvation diet will make you lose weight and who realistically wants to starve themselves on a permanent basis? All weight loss programs without starving don’t work permanently so why be disappointed every time and waste much of your time trying to do the impossible current weight loss fad.

 

For all the lazy exercisers walking fast about 20 minutes about three times a week is all that you need. This is a rather boring routine so you can make your exercise sessions more interesting by doing an assortment of natural body movements which stretch your body or even give you a cardiovascular workout.

 

For a cario workout try jumping jacks and make them more interesting by leaping high as you do them or by flexing your knees or body torso as you are doing them. Running in place or jumping as high as you can is an excellent workout which you can do in the house, especially when it is raining or terribly hot or cold outdoors.

 

Pushups, rotating arms, deep knee bends, stomach curls, squat thrusts, toe touching while standing,  standing on one leg, head nodding, and stepping up and down on a stool will exercise your arms, legs, stomach, and neck.

 

If you want to ritualize the exercise then try yoga positions and Pilate’s moves.

 

If you are a senior citizen, can barely stand, and have joint stiffness then repetitively flex your arms, legs, neck, and body from a sitting or lying down position.

 

CONCLUSION:

Save a boatload of time and money by not going to a gym but doing exercise in and around the home. Tone your body with natural body movements and you will be healthier for it. You will not lose any weight exercising but you will be healthier at the weight which you are currently at.

 

Remember, no exercise will make you lose weight but exercising will improve your mental and physical health and that is really the realistic benefit which you should be looking for in your life of good habits to do.

6 PSYCHOLOGICAL MYTHS YOU PROBABLY BELIEVE ARE TRUE

slide_314476_2842574_free

You’ll feel better if you express your anger openly:

Beating up an inanimate object which isn’t always available or cussing much when you feel angry just reinforces a bad habit which makes you feel good and the probability that you will want to repeat the experience increases every time. Expressing anger is addictive and you don’t want to develop a reputation of exploding in inappropriate social situations. 

Counting to ten or twenty silently until anger intensity fades and then proceeding with speech or actions is a far better solution and won’t leave you with a reputation of being a raving lunatic.

 

You will succeed if you just believe in yourself:

Selfesteem has to be grounded in reality in order for it to have beneficial results or successful results. Being told that you are great without you doing anything great is a lie which reality will not reward with success. If you are socially incompetent or incompetent because of a lack of skills and unreliable also then no amount of selfesteem will make up for your inadequacies and you are doomed to fail frequently.

The real solution to success is acquiring or learning better social and knowledge skills and not pretending that you deserve respect and admiration because you think highly of yourself without the facts or actions to back this up. Learn the skills necessary for success and you will start succeeding and your true selfesteem will grow with each success.

 

Cult members are stupid gullible sheep:

The suicide cults get all the public attention and humans generalize that all cults must have stupid gullible humans. The truth is that many cults have smart humans who function normally in society and just happen to like to form groups of humans with common ideas and actions which are deviant forms of normal social behavior but the beliefs don’t make the humans dysfunctional in society at large. Biker groups with scary reputations and Scientology could be considered cults but their members interact with society and many are not stupid gullible sheep.

 

Subliminal messages can affect your behavior subconsciously:

Playing music backwards and a message flashed imperceptibly during an advertisement supposedly has the power to influence your behavior and cause you to buy a product. If this were true then political leaders would flash political messages subliminally and be able to control your political behavior and take over your mind. The fact is that none of this has scientific backing and proof and it is a big myth.

 

A lie detector test can determine if you are lying:

A polygraph determines physical responses during questioning and passing the test can give a false sense of security to the tester. Scientific tests have been made and it turns out that the test is just a little better than 50/50 or a flip of the coin and Aldrich Ames a famous Soviet spy beat the polygraph every time it was used.

 

Homophobes are secretly gay:

There is no scientific evidence for this but about half the population of males is against homosexuals so that theoretically makes half the population gay, a highly unlikely possibility.

BEWARE OF UNTRUE HEALTH CLAIMS WHICH ARE MODERN SOCIAL MYTHS

538blog_8commonliestoldbyen

Society is infested with bogus or untrue health claims and some even claim to have doctor testimonials or “proven” scientific backing.

If you read about one diet, one food, a nutrition supplement, a pill, or a drug which will help you to lose weight permanently, improve your mind, make you live longer, make you more attractive or beautiful, make you ripped, make your skin healthier, cure geriatric illnesses, and protect you against heart disease or cancer then don’t believe a word of it. It is a bogus untrue claim even if a doctor or scientist claims it is true.

There is no one magic thing that will make you healthier. Only eating a large variety of certified organic food as much as possible in moderation and getting in a little moderate exercise about three times a week will optimize your health unless you have a genetic predisposition to illness. Depart too much from eating moderately and healthily without any exercise and your health will suffer sooner if not later in your life. Stay away from modern sugary overly processed foods as much as possible and try to eat food as close to its natural state as possible.

All doctors, scientists, and nutritionists know much less about food and health than mother nature!!!!!! The latest food fad or miracle cure for weight loss or guaranteed healthy living is a myth and nothing more designed to part you with your hard earned money and common sense which you should conscientiously guard.

This is not a complete list by any means but here are 7 reasons a scientific claim or any claim for that matter is probably bogus or untrue. The link to the article follows.

11 Biggest Fitness Myths

Exercise-Myths1

Here is a link to womenshealthmag.com with an article on 13 fitness myths.

http://www.womenshealthmag.com/fitness/fitness-myths-0

Two of the 13 fitness myths are actually true for many humans based upon my personal knowledge and experience.

TRUTH: You don’t need to exercise every day and can in fact skip exercise for a week or months and not cause any bad effects on your body. You may not feel as wide awake and energized and relieved of stress if you don’t exercise daily but most of us, excluding old people with muscle stiffness problems, don’t exercise daily and survive just fine.

TRUTH: Working out can make some humans hungry. Some people may not get hungry after a workout, especially if they exercise on a daily basis and have established a standard routine of eating and exercising. I on the other hand from personal experience do frequently feel hungry after heavy exercise because I live a rather sedentary life and don’t exercise or eat on a regular basis. After I suddenly exercise vigorously my body demands food and I feel hungry.

MYTH: You can target your fat burn

MYTH: You shouldn’t work out on an empty stomach

MYTH: No pain, no gain

MYTH: You should stretch before you work out

MYTH: Lifting heavy weights bulks you up

MYTH: Exercise machines beat free weights

MYTH: Running on a treadmill is as effective as running outside

MYTH: You can’t work out when your sick

MYTH: Sweating means your out of shape

MYTH: Crunches are the best moves for your core

MYTH: Running beats walking

HOW TO UPDATE LANGUAGE AND MAKE IT MORE EFFICIENT AND LOGICAL

internet1

Exclude all synonyms which have the same meaning and use just one word with a unique definition.

Exclude antonyms because there are no opposite words in meaning

Exclude multiple meanings for words and have a word have only one definition

Exclude words which sound the same but are spelled differently. Dear and deer sound the same so dear should be eliminated or replaced with another unique sounding word

Exclude prepositions and complex grammatical rules and just use nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs in the language.

If possible take a word now in usage and replace it with a shorter version which may be a slang word now but need not be in the future

Define each word logically using the concept of set and subset to formulate that definition and replace thing with subset

We don’t need similes, metaphors, and meaningless long phrases to express logical reality. Because of their usage we are now swimming in a world of  illogical uncontrolled emotion. We are ruled with concepts of love or hate for opinions and/or facts and most of us don’t make logical decisions in our lives. It is always black or white, either for or against something all the time and most of us forget that the world also has many “shades of grey”.

Exclude many words used to describe different intensities or degrees or how good or how bad something is and replace them with 1 through 10. 1 to 10 good and 1 to 10 bad. An example would be you got 10good on your test which means excellent, perfect score, all right, etc.

Exclude as many emotional words as possible in language which impede logical communication.

Use the same language worldwide is what I highly recommend as a necessary step to eventually unify the world under one language and one constitution or political system.

Good news, I have already done most of the hard basic work needed and formed a logically defined nucleus of about 7000 words which can be added to logically. The evergreen book is SCIENTIFIC THESAURUS. Using my words and definitions by the end of elementary school almost all students will have learned a logical language which they can use in their real lives to make logical decisions instead of heavily emotionally biased opinions and actions.

An efficient language means less time to learn it and greater efficiency in using it. We will all be saving much time, energy, and money!!!!!!

I am doing my best to use this logical language in my blogs where I admit I use some words which I shouldn’t because they have multiple meanings in society at large. If I used the right word I would have to give you the new spelling and new logical meaning and your easy understanding of what I am writing about would be less.

Language even now has the ability to be used in a logical way as demonstrated in my blogs so all that most of you will have to do is learn the logical definitions and use my style of writing about everything which is on your mind.

With a smart efficient logical language there will no longer be smart and stupid humans. Everyone will be smart and many will still do stupid actions but there will be almost infinitely less who will behave stupidly. Yes some will have better memories than others but being smart does not require a good memory. There are many “intelligent” humans or humans with excellent memories who are doing very stupid things in this world and they are not smart at all but could be called very stupid. We have stupid leaders governing this world and it is time that we should put a stop to it with an efficient logical language which all of them should learn before they have a right to tell us all what to do with and in our lives!!!!!! And that is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!!!!!!

6 LARGEST MYTHS

Butterfly Nebula

MYTH: There is only one creator named God.

TRUTH: Then who created God? Another God?

MYTH: A successful relatively peaceful lasting civilization can exist without trust between the governed and their leaders.

TRUTH: Without trust between the leaders and the governed society will become chaotic and anarchic and to restore order tyranny or rule by the threat of force and the use of force to create fear of punishment or death is the only way to restore some degree of order in the society. Leaders must not lie to the governed and humans must not lie to each other, especially their family.

MYTH: Justice is possible without trustworthy humans with good reputations based on honesty, sincerity, telling the truth, and a good social reputation.

TRUTH: If the judge is untrustworthy or if the jury has untrustworthy citizens and the plaintiffs don’t have a good trustworthy social reputation then injustice is guaranteed. With lying leaders and lying followers true justice is not possible.

MYTH: Artistic expression is vital and necessary for the peaceful harmonious existence of humans and wildlife on the face of this earth.

TRUTH: Almost all artistic expression is mutant imitations of natural beauty which pollute the environment by using up precious natural resources and doom humans to participate in trivial behavior and entertainment not vital to healthy survival on the face of this endangered earth. Artistic expression is mutant propaganda and behavior which is destroying biodiversity at an alarming rate.

MYTH: Human civilization will survive with the continued use of an archaic, overly emotional language with words which have illogical, vague, and inaccurate definitions which are used in an emotionally biased way.

TRUTH: Humans are enslaved in their mutant destructive behaviors by an illogical overly emotional language which glorifies emotional thinking and not logical reasoned thinking which is the only way to save humanity from self-destructing. Humans are emotionally enslaved to a destructive inefficient past and present mythology and have no way out because humans are ruled by the manipulation of their emotions and not based on a necessary unemotional thinking logical reality. Emotions and indoctrination into past and present mythology which lasts a lifetime makes it almost impossible to change the course of human history for the better at the speed which is necessary for natural biodiversity to survive. Without natural biodiversity and its time tested healthy gene pool, human civilization is doomed to extinction sooner than expected.

Language must be efficient and not overly complex with many grammatical rules and too many words to learn which make learning the language time consuming and inefficient and makes its use even more time consuming and inefficient for the duration of the life of the user. An inefficient language dooms the civilization which uses it to an eternity of very undesirable inefficient communications which waste much too much time, energy, and money. Animals in nature communicate efficiently and so must humanity communicate efficiently among themselves!!!!!!

MYTH: Humanity will survive with an inefficient worldwide civilization.

TRUTH: Nature abhors inefficiency and destroys inefficient species. Wildlife communication is efficient and the distribution of natural resources and energy is efficient, and nature efficiently selects the survival of the healthiest and smartest members of each species. Nature does not tolerate handicapped, and diseased and stupid behavior but destroys it. Humanity does not select the most trustworthy, healthiest, and smartest individuals and rewards them with money and successful reproduction so that future generations will benefit. Be fruitful and multiply should apply to the most trustworthy, healthiest, and smartest specimens which humanity has. Without an efficient morality and its application in real life, civilization is doomed. Don’t waste time, energy, and money!!!!!! 666

THE MODERN LOVE MYTH TOO MANY BELIEVE IN

love-myths

MYTH: Fall madly in love, get married, and live happily ever after.

TRUTH: Learn enough skills to get a good paying job or career, fall madly in love, get married, and live happily ever after if your personalities are compatible.

That is the modern myth that many women and men still believe in and it is not the truth in far too many real life situations. Historically marriage heavily depended on a female dowry (money) which was a realization of the fact that having a family is an expensive responsible undertaking and that it requires much money to make a successful long duration relationship with offspring.

Today having fun and being attractive has taken center stage as prerequisites to a relationship with the opposite sex with catastrophic results. Family life is disintegrating for many as more and more adults remain single for a very long time. Many divorced women with children whom a male has abandoned largely for financial reasons are forced to go on welfare to support their single parent families and lifestyles.

Yes, there are still some couples who find financial security and true love at the same time which is the ideal romantic situation but there are far too many who don’t realize that money should not be ignored as a necessary foundation for a strong and lasting relationship.

If you are a woman and are not very attractive physically and without a job then the only relationships which you can realistically expect are dysfunctional ones with other males.

TRUTH: Whether you are a man or woman educate yourself with desirable skills and get a good paying job or career. Then start seriously looking for a lasting marital relationship. In the meantime be satisfied with the fact that you will probably have many short duration relationships with the opposite sex with or without sex and have to be satisfied with a rarely good and frequently bad time with the opposite sex and not much else.

A marriage frequently needs compatible personalities and looks but more important it needs a good amount of money to keep it going for the long duration, especially if you have offspring.

4 TRUTHS AND 3 MYTHS ABOUT BLOGGING

blogging

TRUTH: Blogging can improve your writing skills.

Practicing writing not only eventually makes you a better writer but it will cure you of the illusion that everything which you write about is important to other humans. Given enough time you will realize that most humans do not care about your personal life and don’t pay attention to over 90% of the things which you write about.

 TRUTH: Most bloggers quickly run out of things to write about which interest other humans.

Blogging with interesting topics requires much work researching the material to write about. No new input in your brain results in no new output from your brain and translates into a dead end in your blogging experience. This is one of the major reasons why bloggers give up quickly and stop blogging.

 TRUTH: The most that you can expect from your blogging is random casual contacts with humans and no serious close friendships.

Most bloggers contact you because they liked your blog article but the probability that you will find a soul mate or close friend who shares your unique interests or passions in life and who can help you is highly improbable.

TRUTH: If you are the rare blogger who has 100 or more followers and have been blogging for about 6 months the chances are great that most of them are not blogging anymore and only a small fraction of them are still following you.

MYTH: Blogging will make you rich.

There are quite a few blogging scamers who are pushing their get rich quick scams such as AWOL. Others are scamming you with clever weight loss scams which promise you quick weight loss with a revolutionary weight loss secret. Of course you have to pay your hard earned money to get in on the scams designed to get money from you and leave you disappointed and angry.

MYTH: Blogging will help you sell your published book.

Your blogging followers are usually relatively poor and with a thousand and one interests few of which are reading books with the subject that you are hoping to promote. You probably need about 100,000 followers to sell about a hundred copies of your published book. I have about 17 books to choose from and haven’t sold one with about 200 followers. Dream on because blogging is not a good promotion tool for selling books.

MYTH: Blogging is a good way to promote your business

I have come across bloggers who are trying to promote their business such as a franchise for public school digital education in India, managerial consultants, book editors, legal consultation, and a medical research hospital in the UK. They are trying to contact bloggers based on the key words which they use and I personally think it is a very inefficient way to solicit customers and they are wasting almost all of their time, energy, and money.

5 GMO MYTHS CHALLENGED AND DESTROYED!!!

Maine-House-backs-GMO-labeling-bill_strict_xxl

MYTH: We need GMOs to feed the growing world population

GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are a short duration seeming solution to increasing crop yields but the long duration solution is population control and maintaining the biodiversity of the food supply.

Temporary increases in crop yields gained by monoculture crop yields or a handful of crop types poses a future danger because if there mutates a superbug or disease which decimates a single crop type which has become the dominant food source then starvation in the future will not be gradual but catastrophic in nature.

Imagine a corn crop which depends on one species and that species is the source for 90 percent or more of the corn supply. Disease susceptibility arises and destroys most of the crop worldwide. What corn crop will be used to replace the now dead species of corn? Catastrophic starvation worldwide for humans and livestock can be the result!!!

Maintaining biodiversity from a polyculture of crops which are not totally dependent on human care but can survive in the wilderness is insurance against catastrophic future starvation! A polyculture of GMOs is once again a temporary short duration solution to a needed increase in food supply and frankly the GMOs have not been all tested for long duration bad effects on the health of humans eating them.

Nature and not man knows best what is good for human health in the long duration. From a polyculture of GMOs we may not be starving but it could result in a disease ridden worldwide population sickened and dying before our natural lifespans are done. The potential for horrifying birth defects has not been studied nor will it be studied before it is too late to do anything about it.

We have tried to interfere with nature with custom bred breeds of dogs and cats merely selected for physical beauty many of which suffer from severe health abnormalities. Custom breed plants and animals with GMOs and the results are predictably unhealthy domestic plants and animals. Nature is smarter than man because man only selectively breeds for a handful of desirable traits and frequently winds up with one or more undesirable ones which become permanent genetic flaws which can’t be cured by human selection.

Nature selects for a million and one desirable genetic traits in plants and animals which are valuable against all the potential environmental threats and man can’t compete successfully with nature’s ability to select wisely for durable healthy plant and animal species.

Danger: There is a great probability that man will select unhealthy GMO plants and animals by considering only a handful of desirable plant and animal characteristics before multiplying the results in great quantity. We will have unhealthy quantity plants and animals and not healthy quality plants and animals which only nature can provide and test for.

MYTH: We need GMO rice, genetically modified with vitamin A to prevent blindness in poor countries.

There are thousands of varieties of nourishing rice and even poor people should not be stuck eating only one crop to survive which causes problems more severe than just blindness but also death. Many lab animals have been fed only one GMO food and have become diseased or have prematurely died because no one in nature eats just one food or crop and survives admirably. Yes, it seems that by eating only eucalyptus leaves or bamboo leaves a species can survive but it usually ingests the nutrients gotten by dirty and diseased leaves which have bacteria, insects, and dust particles on them. The probability that a one food dependent species will survive is very low and very poor humans should definitely never be dependent on a one plant food supply.

MYTH: GMOs can reduce the use of pesticides.

After a few years pests like corn rootworm develop resistance to GMO corn and super weeds develop resistance to chemicals or in other words nature starts to destroy the theoretically indestructible GMO crop. More use of pesticides and expensive purchase of GMO crop seed results in corn production even more expensive than before and there is no net reduction in pesticide use.

MYTH: GMOs can reduce the use of herbicides

There are weeds which have developed resistance to roundup herbicide and more of it is being used than before with few other options on such short notice.

MYTH: GMOs are safe

Genetically modified foods…
Are they safe?

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) doesn’t think so. The Academy reported that “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM (genetically modified) food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM asked physicians to advise patients to avoid GM foods.

Long duration safety of GMOs is never tested for but is approved by the government automatically. Read responsibletechnology.org for the potential long duration bad genetic and health effects on humans and animals.

There is a growing body of scientific evidence which proves that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are inherently different from natural organisms including the way the body processes them and also how the immune system responds to them. But Monsanto which is the largest seller of GMOs in the world believes that GMOs are no different than natural organisms and that GMO testing is both needless and valueless.

Genetically Engineered (GE) Food Changes Our Digestive Systems:

GE organisms actually become part of the bacteria in our digestive tracts and reproduce continuously inside us. But the USDA now wants to exclude controls from GE corn!

There are no human clinical trials of genetically engineered foods. The only published human feeding experiment showed that genetic material inserted into GE soy transfers into the DNA of bacteria living inside our intestines and continues to function. Even after we stop eating GE foods we may still have the GE proteins produced continuously inside us.

The Institute for Responsible Technology has communicated that the genetic engineering process creates massive parallel damage causing mutations in hundreds or thousands of locations throughout the plant’s DNA. Natural genes can be deleted or permanently turned on or off and hundreds may change their behavior. Even the inserted gene can be damaged and/or reordered and may create proteins that can trigger allergies or promote disease.

The idea of having genetically engineered genes permanently living inside our guts has serious implications:

If the antibiotic gene inserted into most GM crops were to transfer then it could create antibiotic resistant diseases.

Bt toxins or Bacillus thuringiensis which is inserted into GM food crops to kill pests are reaching the bloodstreams of 93% of women and 80% of unborn babies because of the consumption of meat and milk and eggs from livestock fed GE corn. This could turn bacteria in our intestines into pesticide factories.

Animal studies show that DNA in food can travel into organs throughout the body and even into the fetus.

Foreign DNA in GMOs is responsible for disease causing inflammation and autoimmune disorders

Considering the injection of foreign DNA into GM crops Physicians and Scientists for Responsible Application of Science and Technology (PSRAST) have taken a more scientific approach by actually investigating how the body processes foreign DNA which shows that things are not as safe as Monsanto claims they are. As can be reasoned logically foreign DNA is not identified by the body and unusually and unnaturally stimulates the immune system in such a way as to cause disease inducing inflammation http://www.saynotogomos.org/scientific studies.htm.

 

Lastly a company proud of their safe and nutritious product should love to stamp or label their products GMOs but instead Monsanto has spent 53 million dollars against Proposition 37 in California which demands labeling of GMOs.

TRUTHS AND MYTHS ABOUT COFFEE DRINKING

4_1196890656_coffee1

TRUE: Coffee can make you defecate

Both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee can stimulate peristalsis or bowel movement, especially if you drink three or more cups at once. If can help you to poop.

 

TRUE: Coffee is not good for pregnant women

Almost no artificial drug is healthy or good for the fetus and coffee is a drug which can cause bad irregular heartbeat in the fetus.

 

TRUE: Coffee can help you to focus and increase your ability to remember

Coffee increases brain activity in the memory rich frontal lobe and the attention controlling anterior cingulum causing an increase in your ability to focus and memorize.

 

MYTH: Coffee fixes hangovers

Coffee may wake up a drunk and slightly dehydrate the body but it will not reduce the amount of alcohol in the blood and make you more sober.

 

MYTH: Coffee will probably cause insomnia

If you drink three or more cups of coffee before bedtime then you may have a little trouble falling asleep right away but in about 8 to 10 hours about 75% of the caffeine in your blood is gone so if you have coffee for breakfast and lunch it should not affect your sleep and insomnia is not caused by the caffeine if you do have insomnia. Even one cup of coffee before bedtime will minimally keep you from falling asleep and definitely not cause insomnia.

 

MYTH: Coffee helps to relieve stress

Coffee is not a depressant but a stimulant which increases brain activity and makes you more susceptible to anxiety and panic attacks and can cause more stress not less.

 

MYTH: Coffee makes women’s breasts smaller

This lie was probably invented by a husband or father who didn’t want his wife or daughter to drink so much coffee so he tried to play on the fear or inadequacy that women feel about having small breasts. Coffee does not affect the growth of body parts and if it did then you could make an untrue claim that coffee also stunts the growth or decreases the size of male penises.

 

MYTH: Coffee is addictive in normal doses

Coffee may be habit forming for many humans but unless you consume very large amounts of it on a daily basis and change your metabolism then you will not suffer from headaches, anxiety, and irritability which are withdrawal symptoms from excessive daily caffeine consumption. Coffee in large doses can be addictive but not as severe an addiction as there is to artificial and natural highly addictive drugs

11 MYTHS ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS AND FOOD

myths

MYTH: Eating or not eating breakfast badly affects your health or weight loss:

If you eat no breakfast at all or eat breakfast then it will not be bad for your health and you will not lose any weight. It is more likely that you will take in more calories during the day by eating more than one meal. More calories consumed at two or more meals means that it will become impossible to lose any weight since you are not severely reducing caloric intake which is the only sure fire way of losing weight .

Every time that you eat you are taking in more calories so if you are on a starvation diet to lose weight then skip as many meals as you can and even fast to some extent by not eating anything for a day or two once in a while during your weight loss routine.

STARVATION DIETS are the ONLY way to lose weight and you will lose weight temporarily but you will gain it all back when you resume normal eating habits and stop calorie counting.

MYTH: Eating many small meals a day instead of one big one will help you lose weight:

Only total caloric intake affects starvation diet weight loss and it doesn’t matter whether you eat six small meals a day or one meal a day with the same total amount of daily calories.

 

MYTH: Eat only carbohydrates, only proteins, or only fats to lose weight:

Eating an unnatural unbalanced diet with an emphasis on one lopsided food nutrient such as carbohydrates is very unhealthy and dangerous to a balanced metabolism. You will not lose any weight if you are eating more calories than those which a starvation diet requires. If you succeed in losing weight on a lopsided starvation diet of processed carbohydrates then you will be harming your health and metabolism because you also need nutrients which protein and fat foods provide.

MYTH:  Weight loss pills will help you to lose weight permanently:

Artificial hunger suppressing drugs will help to get you on a starvation diet and you will lose weight temporarily but you will gain it all back when you stop using the drug and resume normal eating habits. In fact the artificial drug will have serious metabolic bad side effects on your health if you use it too long or on a permanent basis.

Some people think that diet supplement pills with natural nutrients or ingredients such as vitamin D will help you lose weight. Untrue, because only a starvation caloric intake will cause you to lose weight and if you are eating a normal amount of calories then no magic supplement pill will burn off more calories than you want or need in your body.

MYTH: Eating saturated fat is unhealthy for you:

People who live in Tokelau (a territory of New Zealand) eat a diet that is about 50% saturated fats and they have superior cardiovascular health compared to other people. The key here is eating good natural food fat and not very unhealthy processed hydrogenated fat used in modern processed foods.

MYTH: Fasting is hazardous to your health:

Not eating for one or two days does not cleanse your body of toxins and improve the functioning of any internal organ. On a cellular level called autophagy it helps your body’s ability to regenerate and become better at reducing toxins in the cell.

If you go to extremes and fast for a week or a month then a little nutrition or drinking a little milk during fasting is helpful to prevent irreversible metabolic damage to your organism. Extreme fasting if done improperly for too long can lead to unhealthy consequences for the body metabolism.

MYTH: Going organic will help weight loss:

Eating natural organic food or processed food will not help you lose weight. Only a starvation diet will help you lose weight whether you are eating organic or processed and modified food.

MYTH: Exercise will help you lose weight:

Exercise will only make you feel hungry again and you will gain back all the calories which you lost exercising by eating again. You will even be exceeding the caloric intake which is needed to merely replenish the calories lost during exercise.

MYTH: Eliminating one food or an assortment of foods will help you lose weight:

If you eliminate one or more foods from your diet you will still get enough calories from other foods which you do eat and you will lose no weight. Switching to a vegetarian diet will not cause you to lose weight because you will eat enough vegies to make your daily body calorie requirements adequate for maintaining a stable weight without any weight loss at all.

MYTH: Everyone gains the same amount of weight by overeating:

By overeating by 1000 calories individuals varied in weight gain by 10 to 30 pounds so every individual is different in the amount of weight which they gain by overeating.

MYTH: Eating a big dinner meal is bad for your health and affects your weight.

Only if you compulsively overeat will it cause weight increase but will not badly affect your health in the long duration if you do not become severely obese. If you only eat one big dinner meal a day then you will not gain weight abnormally because the caloric intake is not that great.

The kind or type of food that you eat affects weight gain more than the amount of food that you eat. If you are eating large amounts of highly processed carbohydrates and sugar then you will be fatter than if you eat large amounts of balanced food with naturally balanced fats, protein, and carbohydrates from natural organic food.

CONCLUSION: If you want to truly lose weight for health or other reasons then counting calories and going on a starvation diet is the only temporary way of doing it with the help of a nutritionist or professional calorie counter.

It is important during that starvation diet that you eat a healthy variety of organic or natural foods balanced with carbohydrates, proteins, and fats which you get by eating everything in moderation or a wide variety of food which you should consume to assure that you are getting proper or balanced nutrition.

Once you reach your desired weight you will still have to painfully count calories and determine how many you will need to maintain a constant reduced weight.

Some people are born naturally skinny or plump and the easiest way to deal with it is to not diet at all but to eat healthily with a large variety of natural organic food. 

Let your weight stabilize at what your natural inherited weight is. You may not be happy with your overweight which nature gave you but at least you will be happy eating to your heart’s content as much as you want of the quality food which you should be eating on a daily basis.

****There is no magic pill, or magic supplement, or magic food which will help you to lose weight. When you eat has nothing to do with weight loss. Only a starvation diet will cause true weight loss and it is a difficult and stressful experience which only desperately overweight people should be going through. All others should be happy and healthy with their natural weight which differs from individual to individual as nature intended it to be.

Remember, you look the way you look because nature intended you to look that way and trying to fight nature will just cause much failure and emotional suffering and misery.

THEORETICAL PHYSICS IS THE MODERN MYTHOLOGY WHICH SHOULD DIE A FAST DEATH!!!

 HubbleArtLead

The only reason that the big bang theory was invented because it seemed to fit the red shift of distant galaxies and it offered a dynamic view of the universe and not a rather constant and homogeneous one.  Another bias in mathematics is the never ending engrossment with something starting from zero and ending in infinity and the big bang tried to imitate this mathematical ideology that there must be a beginning and an end to everything. Sudden creation is an unproven hypothesis that will never be proved in the laboratory so physicists should stop theorizing about it and should go back to real productive work and not dreaming with the aid of computers  and/or a piece of paper.

The red shift reason for the extension of the universe only applies if we assume that the earth is the center of the universe and this myth has been disproven long ago.  The earth is not the center of the universe! All galaxies have a red shift so that means that all galaxies are moving away from the earth at different velocities what bullshit.  All the galaxies are not moving away from the earth! There should be a red shift for the galaxies that are moving away from us and no red shift for the galaxies that are moving closer to us or traveling at the same speed as us in the same direction.  The relative constant density distribution of stars 360 degrees around the earth argues for a homogeneous universe that is not extending! Yes there may be localized extensions and subtensions in the galaxies themselves but the universe is largely homogeneous.

Even my theory is not provable so I am not wasting my time trying to prove the theory because it can’t be proven in the laboratory which is the only realistic proof that is valid in this world of ours.

Other scientific facts that argue against the big bang theory are the curious red shifts of quasars which don’t fit the extending universe concept.  The relatively constant background noise in 3D from the universe observed with radio telescopes also argues against an extending universe. The distribution of periodic elements can’t be explained with the big bang theory unless the pretend factor of dark matter is added to the equations.  Sun spots and solar wind can’t be explained gravitationally. Gravitational forces don’t explain the spiral shape of galaxies.

There are about 40 reasons why relativity is not only a bad theory but an unprovable one which has not led to any new discoveries. Some of the most glaring contradictory facts to relativity are that neutrinos travel at the speed of light and have mass but don’t have infinite mass. There is an observed lack of curvature in overall space.  Time is not a vector which has an inverse the way that direction has and should never have been merged mathematically.

Infinite mass concentrated at an infinitely small point should have infinite gravity which is an unexplainable phenomenon which makes black hole theory and the big bang theory logically impossible and mathematically absurd.

Growing evidence is beginning to show that plasma and electromagnetic forces may have to be used to explain the universe more completely. This is further proof that the big bang theory is not on solid theoretical grounds and general relativity or a pure geometrical explanation will have to be discontinued as a valid full explanation for the movement of cosmological bodies.

We should all be trying to create a better world with updated human laws so that humanity and wilderness plants and animals can all justly survive into the foreseeable future.  All theoretical physicists should speedily reeducate and participate in constructive ways to build a new and better robotized world.

Do you really believe the universe or universes could have originated from a single point in space which is infinitely small and has no volume? That is what the big bang theory assumes.  Illogical isn’t it?

Mathematics has trouble applying the concept of zero and a point and infinity to the real world so science which uses mathematics comes out with highly improbable theories like a black hole which also is about the size of a point or infinitely small in size and has no volume.  Mathematics is just not an advanced enough tool to be used to theorize about the origins or functioning of the universe millions and billions of light years away and mathematics is also an infinitely inaccurate tool to be used in theorizing about the infinitely small!

Singularities in theoretical physics which don’t make sense and never will and which originate from our basic misunderstanding of zero and a point and infinity will plague science with unanswered questions as long as we continue to try and explain the world with mathematics as the only tool.

Turbulence in space as observed through the Hubble telescope is proof that an aether or dark matter exists and does not follow simple mathematical gravitational physics formulas. The truth is that dark matter can’t be measured or detected by any scientific instruments so it will never be proven with mathematical formulas which apply to measurable matter and energy only. Dark matter an unexplained mystery and will remain so into the foreseeable future.

Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle proves that we are at a point where we can no longer measure anything smaller than a photon.  Stop all that research into highly improbable particles such as quarks and leptons and bosons or the Higgs boson.  We are not smart enough to learn about the origins of the universe or the true nature of matter beyond the photon or electromagnetic radiation in general.  The new improved earth should be the new age of applied physics and/or applied chemistry and/or applied biology and/or applied robotics in general.

We can make high energy protons collide and seemingly observe light traces of more than two particles but how can you make any generalizations about fundamental particles when you have not collided high energy electrons together to get similar light traces? If there is truly a fundamental universal particle then you should also find it as the building block of electrons too. Mathematical science and inadequate scientific apparatus and the human mind is just not smart enough to come up with proof that a universal particle exists since you can’t prove what you can’t measure and you can’t devise apparatus experiments which prove the unprovable.

The truth is that we should 100% of us including physicists stop theorizing about the origins of the universe and should instead robotize society so that humans can be freed from repetitive and boring bodily labor.  All scientists and laymen should be theorizing and passing new laws to conserve and extend bio-diversity on this earth because we will have no place to go if we destroy it!  The truth is that travel in space is only realistic for robots and not for human bodies and the probability that humans will populate other planets is highly improbable.

My book JUSTICE shows how laws can be updated to prevent the world from plunging into imminent suicidal oblivion.

Historically religious leaders wowed their flock with stories about miracles and stories about super human events.  Today bullshit theoretical physicists are wowing their flock with stories about teleportation and worm holes and parallel universes and multiple universes and string theory and black holes and dark matter and antimatter and existence of a unique subset at two or more points at once and etc. Don’t listen to and try to believe all that irrelevant and untrue and unprovable nonsense that has no real value in the real world that you are now living in!  Theoretical physicists have replaced the religious prophets of old and their supernatural claims or theories are just as outrageous and not to be believed! No homosapien will ever be omniscient and omnipresent and omnipotent!  Which non insane human really thinks that they can be all knowing and exist everywhere and be all powerful?

The truth is that humans have not evolved to the point where they can explain and understand all the detailed workings of the universe and probably never will!  Escaping to other planets is a dream that should not be investigated in any great detail when pollution and the destruction of biodiversity is so imminent and needs our immediate attention and action!

MYTH: Theoretical physics is a useful tool to explain particles smaller than a photon or how the universe does work.

TRUTH: The brainpower of theoretical physics should be used in applied physics and we should stop wasting brain power and time and energy and money dreaming about theoretical physics concepts.
