I decided to listen to Episode #2527. Twelve minutes in and he claims to have cured more people than Jesus.

[expletive deleted]

I do think a hypnotist could render me blind to tinnitus, but I couldn't trust them to not tell me to cluck like a chicken then point and laugh.

...and now I've found whatifalthist's other channel and have a ton of stuff to listen to. This discussion is very interesting and confirms some of my prior assertions with regards to the trajectory of population, and what type of societies will survive.

There's a new episode of whatifalthist and I'm surprised to find someone out there who shares my unusual appreciation for both Darwinism and Christianity.

He goes on to point out that the current religion winning the day is Marxism.

Episode 2530, ten minutes in. He's on about the fall of the Roman Empire as a regression to the mean. And the role of coincidence.

If he thinks too deeply about coincidence he'll be down the same rabbit hole as Robert Anton Wilson [RIP].

Coincidance: A Head Test by Robert Anton Wilson | Goodreads
Dance a mad dervish whirl of coincidence and synchronicity with Robert Anton Wilson and his dancing partners James Joyce, the Marquis de Sade, William S. Borroughs, Carl Jung, Timothy Leary, Bobbie Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe and a host of others. Coincidance is one of Wilson's personal favorites.

Whatifalthist again:

He covers the Frankfurt School at 21:14. A text wall at 22:24 calls out the French Postmodernists as Step 2. I was exposed to them in 1962 at the University of Oregon, and I blame them for everything.
