GERM THEORY (PASTEUR)
1.. Disease arises from micro-organisms outside the body.
2.. Microorganisms are generally to be guarded against.
3.. The function of microorganisms is constant.
4.. The shapes and colours of microorganisms are constant
5.. Every disease is associated with a partciular microorganism
6.. Microorganisms are primary causal agents.
7.. Disease can "strike" anybody.
8.. To prevent disease we have to "build defences".CELLULAR THEORY (BECHAMP).
1. Disease arises from micro-organisms within the cells of the body.
2.These intracellular microorganisms normally function to build and assistin the metabolic processes of the body.
3.The function of these organisms changes to assist in the catabolic(disintegration) processes of the host organism when that organism dies or is injured, which may be chemical as well as mechanical.
4.Microrganisms change their shapes and colours to reflect the medium
5. Every disease is associated with a particular condition.
6. Microorganisms become "pathogenic" as the health of the host organismdeteriorates. Hence, the condition of the host organism is the primary causal agent.
7. Disease is built by unhealthy conditions.
8. To prevent disease we have to create health.

I see that, as they say, great minds think alike. Thank you for this link. I hadn't before looked at their arguments in the form they feel is the most cogent. Amazing! And horrifying.
Here's my "favorite" argument so far: "Once again, picture in your mind a round world. Now imagine that there are two people on this world, one at each pole. For the person at the top of the world, (the North Pole), gravity is pulling him down, towards the South Pole. But for the person at the South Pole, shouldn't gravity pull him down as well? What keeps our person at the South Pole from falling completely off the face of the "globe"?"

Umm.. yeah, right, sure.

I learned over the weekend that some people are objecting to how optics is taught in physics, specifically about rainbows, because physics classes don't include Noah and the flood. It's a post-Enlightenment world.

Arrgh! Shudder! I once had a long debate with a working, high-school-diploma'd, ostensibly literate man of 25 who insisted that ships made of iron are too heavy to float on the ocean so there must be "some sort of trick" involved. He just never did get it. I had a similar discussion in high school with a fellow student who reacted to time-lapse footage of bean plants growing by exclaiming how "fake" it was because plants don't flail around like that and grow that fast. She never did get it either. Sigh... Katrina

Much like many of the debates offered her. Debate for the purpose of debate only, often twisting people's words simply to make a case and get attention. No REAL knowledge required.
Just attitude and being louder than everyone else. Where is shelly anyhow?

I'm not so sure that you want to go there...

Parody is horrifying?
I think you've just been, shall we say, "punked.""The Flat Earth Society is not in any way responsible for the failure of the French to repel the Germans at the Maginot Line during WWII. Nor is the Flat Earth Society responsible for the recent yeti sightings outside the Vatican, or for the unfortunate enslavement of the Nabisco Inc. factory employees by a rogue hamster insurrectionist group. Furthermore, we are not responsible for the loss of one or more of the following, which may possibly occur as the result of exposing one's self to the dogmatic and dangerously subversive statements made within: life, limb, vision, Francois Mitterand, hearing, taste, smell, touch, thumb, Aunt Mildred, citizenship, spleen, bedrock, cloves, I Love Lucy reruns, toaster, pine derby racer, toy duck, antelope, horseradish, prosthetic ankle, double-cheeseburger, tin foil, limestone, watermelon-scented air freshner, sanity, paprika, German to Pig Latin dictionary, dish towel, pet Chihuahua, pogo stick, Golf Digest subscription, floor tile, upper torso or halibut.

"In the small town of Grass Roots, MO, one of our members has successfully infiltrated the public education system. By being hired on as a teacher in the district, she was able to gain a foothold that has allowed us to "replace" nearly every lower grade teacher in the entire town with loyal Flat Earthers. The students are now undergoing deprogramming measures and are expected to be released when they reach their mid-thirties."
"After spending over sixteen million dollars and using over 48 thousand yards of industrial strength strapping tape, we of the Flat Earth Society were able to construct an enormously powerful neurotransmitter that can implant suggestions directly into the brains of the nearby non-Flat Earthers. Having set it up just outside of the Russian Antarctic exploration post (Vostok), we are awaiting word that all three scientists and 174 penguins have been shown the light."

Fair enough. I figured that out when I read the application for membership form. I was taking a break during the brief nap of one poor sick toddler here, and so hadn't got to the bits you quoted yet. But there is a serious Flat Earth Society out there and that is horrifying. Katrina

When I read your posts I heard this weird sound, kind of like a bedsheet flapping in a strong wind. Very odd.

I hear the sound my daughter makes when she shits herself. Marcel and Moogli http://mudbunny.blogspot.com /

I thought that's what I was smelling!
