If life could appear out of the chemical soup that was early Earth, I don't understand why it isn't likely that it would appear the same way in two different places, which means that there would not necessarily need to be one locus for a common ancestor, right?

 No.206877

>>206876
You're right. Take a look at:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenesis

LUCA is probably not the only life form to have originated on earth, but it is the one that all present life on earth share a ribosomal RNA with. While it's not mathematically impossible that n life forms in n different places have developed the exact same ribosomal RNA that we all share today, according to the theory of evolution it's staggeringly more likely that this ribosomal RNA was developed by a single entity and then spread from that source.

I love the Travis story! Honestly, Travis did nothing wrong. The owner was warned multiple times that she should not have that chimp, especially since it was growing into a teenager, and had no mates around. The attack was literally inevitable, and no amount of Ambien was going to stop it.

>Keller supported eugenics which had become popular with new understandings (as well as misapprehensions) of principles of biological inheritance. In 1915, she wrote in favor of refusing life-saving medical procedures to infants with severe mental impairments or physical deformities, saying that their lives were not worthwhile and they would likely become criminals
>In 1920, Keller helped to found the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). She traveled to over 40 countries with Sullivan, making several trips to Japan and becoming a favorite of the Japanese people. Keller met every U.S. president from Grover Cleveland to Lyndon B. Johnson and was friends with many famous figures, including Alexander Graham Bell, Charlie Chaplin and Mark Twain. Keller and Twain were both considered political radicals allied with leftist politics.

>The body temperature, and therefore activity level, of this scorpionfly depends on its absorption of short-wave and long-wave radiation rather than surrounding air temperatures (by which it is completely unaffected). The boundary layer of snow that the insect occupies has very low thermal conductance, and so the insect loses its own heat very slowly here. This delicate balance between cold and heat means that the animal is easily killed by heat when held in a human hand.

Unironically very interesting. Had no idea how central salt has been to life on Earth and human civilization. Probably second only to water.

>Salt created and destroyed empires. The salt mines of Poland led to a vast kingdom in the 16th century, only to be demolished when Germans brought in sea salt (which most of the world considered superior to rock salt)

>n American history, salt has been a major factor in outcomes of wars. In the Revolutionary War, Loyalists intercepted Patriot salt shipments in an attempt to interfere with their ability to preserve food. During the War of 1812, salt brine was used to pay American soldiers in the field, as the federal government was too poor to pay them with money. Before Lewis and Clark set out for the Louisiana Territory, President Jefferson in his address to Congress mentioned a mountain of salt, 180 miles long and 45 wide, supposed to lie near the Missouri River, which would have been of inconceivable value, as a reason for their expedition.

That person invented the term , specifically, wikipedia said that the idea that small group of people run s the world, he called it conpiracy theory.

Anyone has a link? It was posted on some forgotten 4chan thread
When you ask google "who is the person that invented that term" google will not give you link to that wikipedia article. but I know I have seen it. I think he was german or swiss but not sure.

So my question is, where is the wikipedia article about a guy that invented term "conspiracy theory"?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacculina#Life_cycle

Sacculina is a species of barnacle that infects crabs and then manipulates their behavior to benefit itself—all to the detriment of the unsuspecting crab.

They do so by growing a rootlike system throughout the crab’s entire body, which the parasite uses to feed on the crab. As the parasite develops, part of its body grows outside of the crab on its lower abdomen, right where a crab would carry its eggs. The parasitic barnacle then manipulates the crab by tricking it into treating the parasite like it would treat its own eggs – carefully caring for and nurturing the parasite by protecting it, grooming it, and flushing it with oxygenated water. This happens even in infected male crabs, which start to behave like pregnant female crabs. Meanwhile, the parasitic barnacle castrates its host, depriving it of the ability to reproduce and diverting its energy to care for the parasite.

Which makes sense since the universe only has a limited amount of resources. So every alien civilization is just fighting over resources on some scale.

That entire trope is just Nazi projection through and through. If you talk to a black man or succubus, they make no secret that they can't stand the hymies and don't like them spread crack and pimping. It's something you will hear often enough that references filter into mainstream culture. It's just that Nazis are such cowards that they can't do real anti-Semitism. They have to be sissies about everything.

Not that I'm endorsing anti-Semitism. There are a whole lot of Jews who don't go around murdering people for sport and are too busy doing some line of work or having a family to skin children alive, to say nothing of the self-hating Jews. Generally when you have an actual grievance against a tribe, you don't have to point to stereotypes or vague aspersions that are obvious projection. You can point to history and say members of some group did this thing, then that thing, and that it was connected to some organized activity like crime. That was usually the association with Jews before WW2 - that they were pimps and drug dealers of the lowest sort.

Hilariously the black men who are most oppressed and most likely to resemble the "feeble nigger" stereotype, are also the most likely to want everyone of every race to get along, because that would be a survival strategy in hard times. If you're an outcast or looked down upon, you don't expect any group solidarity or team membership, and racial identity and history would mean a lot less to you. It doesn't mean anything to me - I don't believe seeing more white faces will make my life any better because my team fucking sucks, and a Nazi faggot is such a coward that they consider criticism of peers or fellow "self-hatred". They only know of abasement to some abstraction. Ultimately, though, most people aren't invested in race-identity politics unless they're grifting, selling a narrative for some purpose, or they're just gigantic fags. There are plenty of examples - white, black, and of course plenty of Jewish and Israeli examples. You're seeing the worst of the latter with hasbara posting after October 7th.

Jews are mathematically overrepresented in many areas proportionate to their cognitive ability, almost certainly due to the extreme amount of nepotism they possess. In the top areas, they should be statistically represented 10-15% in leadership positions based on their IQ. For things like the National Rifle Association, this is what you find. That's what you should typically find throughout American society. They're 2% of the population but statistically should be 15% of the top, based on their bell curve and how it overlaps with typical American society.

When Jews are ubiquitous in a field, it's nepotism. They're highly ethno-centrist and practice nepotism to a degree nobody else does. They exploit the fact whites don't do the same thing to push whites out of opportunities while proliferating their own. It's very clear that at Universities like Harvard and Yale, with the amount of jews and the amount of Affirmative Action, they've effectively pushed out the Asians and Whites that would be taking many of their spots

Werner Herzog was "known to hypnotize chickens; he also hypnotized the cast of his 1976 film Heart of Glass".[9]

I am not a troll.

I find it sad to think that people think I am a troll. I have been banned from numerous communities in the past, all under the mistaken assumption that I am some sort of bizarre troll trying to stir up trouble. But I am not such a person.

You see, I had dreams of becoming a biochemist. I wanted to work on curing cancer and aging. I wanted to be the guy in the white lab coat holding a pipette in his hand while loading buffer solutions into the gel electrophoresis tanks. I wanted to wake up every morning knowing that each day spent at the lab would be one more step towards freeing man from the confines of his biology. But in 2013, my dreams were cruelly snatched away from me by the University of Otago administration:

https://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/man-confetti-bombed-uni-toilets

So I moved onto Plan B, which was to win the Powerball jackpot with the help of God so that I can become a "gentleman scientist" and build my own lab and thus pursue my dreams outside of (but in parallel with) the traditional academic system. I had earlier bought my first lottery ticket in June 2011 when the jackpot was a "must be won" $35 million which ended up being a dud but now that I had been kicked out of college, my efforts went into overdrive. I was buying lotto tickets left right and center. Yet fast forward to 2021 and every ticket for the past ten years has resulted in a dud.

I also prayed to God to be sent back to 2009, so that I can purchase Bitcoin at a few cents each (or mine my own) and in effect, get the same result as a lottery win. But every time I woke up, I would find myself in the then-present year.

In other words, despite all of my efforts, there has been no response from God. So I decided I had enough and crafted my Request for Transferral of Omnipotence which is an offer that still remains open to this day (God, if you are reading this then please re-consider it). I believe that God is doing a terrible job at being God, and I would like to step up to the role of becoming God. Unlike the modern God, I would not be an absentee God. Instead, I would be proactive in ensuring the happiness and healthiness of mankind and all the creatures of the world. Given that rates of religiosity are declining throughout the Western world and more and more people are turning towards atheism, it's obvious that God's current approach is not working.

In fact, God had the chance to create a renaissance of Christendom that was practically given to him on a silver platter by simply waking Olive Alayne Heiligenthal up in late 2019 but he fucked that one up too (just like the way he fucked up all of my prayers).

Currently I am working on attempts to communicate with God via electromagnetic means. According to Erich von Daniken, God isn't actually "God" but instead an extraterrestrial with godlike powers (cue Arthur C. Clarke's quote about a sufficiently advanced technology being indistinguishable from magic). While von Daniken posits rather stable extraterrestrial civilizations technology-wise, I believe that post-singularitarian alien civilizations have access to time travel (and thus nearly unlimited computing power) and as a result, live in a state where technological progress is measured in literal picoseconds. However, our Universe is set up in a way that according to Einstein's theory of relativity, both having mass and velocity result in a sort of (minuscule) time dilation effect which would put any "rebellious" components of these superintelligent alien civilizations that attempted to make their presence known in our Universe at a significant competitive disadvantage. This is also my personal explanation for the Fermi paradox.

Thus my hope is that any post-singularitian God has not fallen into this "trap" and he is somewhere out there listening to us. Because of this, I am researching Steven M. Greer's CE5 protocols, which might be helpful for communicating with such a God. There are also philosophers like Carl Sagan and Terry Davis who have proposed that the mind of God might be ascertained by exploring the nature of entropy such as the kind found in the digits of Pi or from random numbers generators.

Finally, there is also the simulation hypothesis to consider. The idea is pretty straightforward. Basically, if you're playing a game of The Sims and one of your sims is constantly bugging you with messages about something that they want done, then there's a chance that you might eventually relent and respond, even if you normally follow a pretty neglectful style of gameplay. Eventually one of those messages could be the straw that breaks the camel's back. Likewise, eventually one of my prayers could be the straw that breaks God's back. By proliferating these prayers into our cosmos, I hope to become that sim that changed God's mind.

So anyway, I hope this explanation is enough to solve this "mystery" and show that I am not a troll. I can understand why bumping into one of my prayers without the context behind it might give the impression that I am trolling though, so apologies for that.

some of that does make sense except the one that needs to be explained away is how there has to be dark to be light and there has to be bad for there to be good. what if the whole thing is playing out the only way it can and the understanding is beyond us. what if even, those who suffer in life the more you suffer it does something to you which gets you to live some kind of amazing life when this thing is over. what if its a test even, and lots of what you say is true, and that the super AI or aliens or God, whichever you want to call it, is making you live this life, because of the way you're living this life retroactively, and punishing you in the present for the future.

it makes sense, the thing is we cant see how things actually work or how the machine is set up we can only see some shadows of how things work and try infer reality from that. humans will never be able to grasp reality what it actually is, it's beyond itself and some kind of recursive fractals or some such who can say that is only what i intuit.

I used to think earth ships were cool and wanted on. That was until I got the chance to visit one and realized how much work they constantly require to not go to shit.
Lots of complex overlapping systems to keep balanced. If one goes out of wack it can throw off 10 other things instantly.

That said some of the things are still pretty cool about them, and if I ever got the chance to build my own place I would implement some of the elements.

Ashkenazi IQ is false like the Chinese', they take all their samples from the creme de la creme of Jewish private schools. Nepotism is why they make up the upper crust of jobs in society.

There's a theory that if the universe is a simulation, civilizations that get too advanced or expansionist get deleted.

https://akarlin.com/katechon/

>Abstract: A corollary of the Simulation Argument is that the universe’s computational capacity may be limited. Consequently, advanced alien civilizations may have incentives to avoid space colonization to avoid taking up too much “calculating space” and forcing a simulation shutdown. A possible solution to the Fermi Paradox is that analogous considerations may drive them to avoid broadcasting their presence to the cosmos, and to attempt to destroy or permanently cripple emerging civilizations on sight. This game-theoretical equilibrium could be interpreted as the “katechon” – that which withholds eschaton – doom, oblivion, the end of the world. The resulting state of mutually assured xenocide would result in a dark, seemingly empty universe intermittently populated by small, isolationist “hermit” civilizations.
