Could Spirit Science actually be a spoof? --31.48.110.230 (talk) 16:47, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Sure it could. And I could be Bigfoot. Virtually anything could be true. The question is what it the probability of its being true? What is the evidence?--Weirdstuff (talk) 14:31, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

okay the whole martian thing is bull. im not sure where this guy got his information but i think he needs to do some more research. Spirit science is based of alighning ones chakaras, the power of thought, and becoming one with the universe around us.— Unsigned, by: 31.48.110.230 / talk / contribs

Either way it's a whole bunch of crap. - Grant (Talk) 21:43, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
He got it from Jordan's "History of the World" video. I don't have time to recap it right here, and Martymer does a better job of it anyway. Dig it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMHos7BcG0g. --74.182.83.96 (talk) 08:34, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

You know, it would actually be cool if we (Jews) were aliens. (talk) Meshakhad 02:14, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

BoN's comment[edit]

comment from soundjunk@yahoo.de: "Oh Really..?! so who are you to say that? History is always written by the winner... think about that, and now I await your scientific proof that the things on spirit science are not true! You better try out for yourself before judging anything. We humans are much more and much greater than we are told we are. You can try out yourself... but do you have the guts to do it? Do you have the guts to make true what you believe? Or are you still helping the so called 'leaders' to realize what they want!? I guess you belong to the second... Have a nice experience then! Oh and before i forget: Claiming you care about the poor believers is just making me laughing my ass off... Really... Check Out Reality! I see every day that its true! You gonna live what you believe! And getting free of the hardwiring that has been done with most of us is hard work! The education system does a great job in transforming wonderful creational godlike beings into mind controlled slaves... why else should we continue to go to work for money that is 1. Nothing worth cause you can hardly buy anything really usefull (Most food you buy and eat is shit - thats why you look like you do! Most of the westerns are fat and can't last longer than 2 minutes in bed... I mean... THATS REAL BAD! and 2. work for money that is used to make war all around the world and produce more shit noone ever needs. Time to Wake Up! We all can live a live full of happiness and joy Just: Eat Right! Move! Believe the impossible! Your Mind matters! So start to create your realitiy now! and start to really experience yourself and everything around you! For that... thespiritscience.net is a great place to start. any emails welcome. thats why i put it. I'm not afraid. I Love!"— Unsigned, by: 93.82.126.102 / talk / contribs 19:58, 20 February 2015‎

Move! Believe in the impossible! Yours is the drill that will-....no wait that's not right. Trick (talk) 20:18, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Ripping off Extra Credits[edit]

For basically anybody who's seen his terrible work, it is basically Extra Credits if they somehow went so far into the conspiracy bucket that it was the bucket. Is it worth mentioning here? Zero (talk - contributions) 09:56, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Codons[edit]

While there are 64 possible ways to have a sequence of 3 nucleotides (A, C, T, and G being 4 in number, and 4x4x4 being 64) they only code for 20 different amino acids. This means (fairly obviously) that some amino acids are each represented by several different codons. If you add stop and start, perhaps that's where the prolific stoner gets 22 from? While the number is technically 64, most references on the subject will mention both numbers, 64, and the number of amino acids the code can represent.

So he could be right on this issue, even if it's probably by coincidence in his case. 188.29.165.219 (talk) 11:05, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Rearrangement[edit]

I've rearranged most of the page, since it was quite repetitive and the "Conflicts with science" section was just non-sense. The contents of the "Beliefs" section haven't been deleted, but moved into a subsection of "Themes" named "History". --Ander Garin (talk) 19:00, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Great! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 19:04, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

References clean-up and rearrangement[edit]

When I have time, I'll put all the references under the same format (author(s), name/video, site/journal, date) and fuse the ones that are different but refer to the same thing into one (using "ref name="). Don't worry if a reference disappears, it'll be temporal. By the way, don't you think that suggesting that SS is a "passive-aggressive cult" is a little bit excessive? I've found no accounts of anyone considering it that so far. If no, we should remove from its definition, because it's unfair. If some people indeed consider it as such, it'd be helpful to add a header discussing its status as a cult.--Jagoe (talk) 17:18, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

It's done. Wow, 35 woo themes. The sheeer amount of wackyness is scary. --Jagoe (talk) 13:26, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
