New study indicates conspiracy theory believers have less developed critical thinking abilities

by Eric W. Dolan New research published in Applied Cognitive Psychology provides evidence that critical thinking skills are negatively related to belief in conspiracy theories. In other words, the study suggests that people with greater critical thinking skills are less likely to believe that terrorist attacks are being covertly directed by a country’s own government or that mind-control technology is secretly being used to control the population. “Regularly, different private and public actors provide homemade tools such as ‘critical thinking skills training programs’ that are supposed to be an effective way of reducing the spread of conspiracy theories,” said study author Anthony Lantian, an … Continue reading New study indicates conspiracy theory believers have less developed critical thinking abilities

COVID Vaccines: A Plot To Control Your ‘Moods And Thoughts’?

Are some COVID-19 shots engineered to control your thoughts? A prominent anti-vaccine campaigner claims this might be the case. He’s wrong, but debunking his concern gives us a chance to discuss cool gene-therapy technology. By Cameron English A few weeks back, Mike Adams, self-proclaimed “Health Ranger” and founder of Natural News, alleged that the US government launched a five-phase campaign to force COVID-19 shots on Americans. This effort, Adams said, would culminate in a “false flag” operation, a mass shooting specifically designed to discredit the opposition to mass vaccination. With the shots still not mandated anywhere in the US, save for some hospitals and universities, Adams … Continue reading COVID Vaccines: A Plot To Control Your ‘Moods And Thoughts’?

We are all conspiracy theorists

In each of our minds, we draw a demarcation line between beliefs that are reasonable and those that are nonsense. Where do you draw your line? by Mick West  Conspiracy theories exist on a spectrum, from plausible and mainstream to fringe and unpopular. It’s very rare to find someone who only believes in one conspiracy theory. They generally believe in every conspiracy theory that’s less extreme than their favorite one. To some extent, we are all conspiracy theorists. The following is an excerpt from the book Escaping the Rabbit Hole by Mick West. It is reprinted with permission from the author. If … Continue reading We are all conspiracy theorists

MICROSOFT PRESIDENT WARNS 2024 WILL LOOK LIKE ‘1984’ IF WE DON’T STOP AI POLICE STATE

Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project Waking Times As TFTP reported in August of last year, police officers in Michigan were equipped with “Smart Helmets” which allowed them to remotely scan passengers for symptoms of COVID-19. While this was widely accepted by many because of the massive fear campaign pushed on society by the mainstream media, thanks to leaps and bounds in artificial intelligence, detecting fever was only a small portion of what the helmets can do and the rest of its function is solely reserved for the police state. The Smart Helmet is not limited to temperature body scans which any laser … Continue reading MICROSOFT PRESIDENT WARNS 2024 WILL LOOK LIKE ‘1984’ IF WE DON’T STOP AI POLICE STATE

THE HARMONY OF NONCONFORMITY

by Jason Gregory, New Dawn Waking Times In a linear world, the external order dictates an artificial way of life to the individual, creating a conformist society and forcing us to relinquish our power to a machine that is unnatural and devoid of life. This passive conformity can be traced back to the origins of the Vedic Hindu caste system and the feudal system under medieval Western Christianity. When a settled agrarian culture such as these is born, it tends to build towns, not only to protect people from outside influences but also to develop a mental framework based on rules … Continue reading THE HARMONY OF NONCONFORMITY

AFTER A YEAR UNDER LOCKDOWN, WILL OUR FREEDOMS SURVIVE THE TYRANNY OF COVID-19?

John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Waking Times “The remedy is worse than the disease.”—Francis Bacon One way or another, the majority of Americans will survive COVID-19. It remains to be seen, however, whether our freedoms will survive the tyranny of the government’s heavy-handed response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Indeed, now that the government has gotten a taste for flexing its police state powers by way of a bevy of lockdowns, mandates, restrictions, contact tracing programs, heightened surveillance, censorship, overcriminalization, etc., we may all be long-haulers, suffering under the weight of long-term COVID-19 afflictions. Instead of dealing with the headaches, fatigue and neurological aftereffects of … Continue reading AFTER A YEAR UNDER LOCKDOWN, WILL OUR FREEDOMS SURVIVE THE TYRANNY OF COVID-19?

Communist China successfully killing the West with coronavirus

(Natural News) What most people fail to realize is that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination drive is priming the bodies of people who get jabbed to be killed off by future bioweapons. by: Ethan Huff Unlike traditional vaccines, the messenger RNA (mRNA) “vaccines” from Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna do not produce matching antibodies for Chinese virus infection. Instead, they tell the body to produce spike proteins that elicit their own immune response, complete with unique antibodies that are different from the ones brought about by natural infection. What this means is that people who get vaccinated for the WuFlu not only gain no protection whatsoever against the “wild” virus, … Continue reading Communist China successfully killing the West with coronavirus

DIGITAL VACCINE PASSPORTS BEING ROLLED OUT EVERYWHERE TO PROVE YOU’VE ‘GOT YOUR SHOTS’

Robert Wheeler, The Organic Pepper Waking Times For those of you who thought the pandemic hysteria and the totalitarian results from it would magically disappear after Joe Biden’s inauguration, you were, well… …wrong. As I wrote about in this article, there are currently two existing vaccine passports options, one being operational in the United States right now: Common Pass: Created by Commons Project, this health pass has been in international use since October on United and Cathay Pacific flights between New York, London, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD TODAY YOU MUST UNLEARN THIS ONE THING

Sigmund Fraud, Staff Writer Waking Times At present, we are dangerously trending toward chaos, total world war, civil war, incivility, and a complete breakdown of civil society, and to the indoctrinated, it’s difficult to understand why exactly this is happening. As the stress of this mounts, the misinformed lash out at friends, family members and strangers who do not fully subscribe to their worldview. The battle really is one of understanding how the world works, and with such epidemic false perceptions, people choose the wrong targets for their ire. If one were to unlearn, however, many of the things we’ve been … Continue reading IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD TODAY YOU MUST UNLEARN THIS ONE THING

THE REAL WORLD AND THE NARRATIVE WORLD

Caitlin Johnstone, Guest Waking Times We each inhabit two very different worlds simultaneously: the real world, and the narrative world. The real world is the physical world of matter, of atoms and molecules and stars and planets and animals wandering around trying to bite and copulate with each other. Science does not yet understand much of this world, but it can reasonably be said to have some degree of existence to it. The narrative world is made of stories, of mental chatter about what’s going on. It is only related to the real world in the loosest of terms, and commonly … Continue reading THE REAL WORLD AND THE NARRATIVE WORLD
