Thanks im just trying to get people to think and research outside the box.

I'm pretty sure everything you've said and thought on this matter is wrong =)

My problem is that people such as yourself say 'Do your own research', but I don't get what that means. For example, you said somewhere that the Vatican is controlling all these powers or something. How does one research that, exactly?

How does one do their own research on chemtrails? And, why do you think any old joe blogs can come up with a more reliable result than those who dedicate their lives to a given specific field of research, thousands of hours and research grants to get the results they get, only to be thwarted by a random citizen who doesn't like the sound of it?

How can you demonstrate that one's research on chemtrails is more reliable than those researchers without a prolific peer-review system built over centuries to perfect and confirm results to the most honest and consistent way possible?

What gives you the confidence that this is all wrong? It's fine if you make that claim - there are still lots of human faults and corruption in science as everything else, but how can you back that claim up?

For example, your video you claim 'Every ice age the planet has had is due to volcanoes' etc. Evidence? Where's your own research on that? Research is not simply googling or browsing a website that fits your biases. Research is the actual scientific method to discover answers for yourself. In this case, you would need to go and look into the ice cores stored in the arctic and take samples on a molecular level, analysing the geological history of the earth. You'd have to go up a volcano and dig into the rock surface and extrapolate the data of eruptions vs ice ages, find a global correlation across the board that is then checked, double-checked and triple checked by other professionals to be sure you're not messing up your results.

Sure, you CAN do this, it's all possible to do by yourself, for free - the internet can teach you the how. But you won't. You will just browse the internet, right?

Even then, a quick google shows me this statement is false. I found that it says volcanoes can and may have potentially started a little ice age, but:

The onset of an ice age is related to the Milankovitch cycles - where regular changes in the Earth's tilt and orbit combine to affect which areas on Earth get more or less solar radiation. When all these factors align so the northern hemisphere gets less solar radiation in summer, an ice age can be started.

So right off the bat, this video appears to be false by doing my own research, in the style that you presumably suggest me to do. Now what?

Ok but, assuming everything you say is true, it's not researched, it's anecdotal. A fighter pilot also claims to have seen UFO, and that may be absolutely true, but its useless knowledge if there's no way to prove it.

Do you think we can just go to court and say 'this military guy I spoke to said they make clouds with dildos. Do your own research, judge'.

What use is that?

The problem with anecdotes is not simply that it can be a lie by either party, but that a lot of deep meaning and context can and always is missing. Even something simple as somebody was just messing around, winding you up, to other things like misinterpreted words, simple lies, mentally twisted, or just plain wrong.

This is just a few. There are so many variable ways an anecdote can be flawed, it doesn't stand up to the test of science and reality. There's no systematic review, no skeptical analysis or scrutiny.

All I have to go on is your word. And if I go and ask around in my vast amounts of free time, then everyone else only has my word too. It's meaningless.

Nobody wants to admit, and nobody will admit, the possibility that they are wrong, this grinds against our brains functionaility - cognitive dissonance. We will always search and force ourselves to be surrounded by the things that match what we feel like is right, not what is actually true.

This is why science is so vital, it's the best tool we have to get around human biases. Anecdotes are the opposite to that system and shouldn't be trusted, whether its what you claim to me, or what I go and find out and claim to others.

I think you'll find if you apply the scientific method to all of your findings, you'll come a cross a plethora of issues in your reasoning. I will check this Phelps out and come back with some examples

An okay post, but buying all those votes is against the spirit of Steem. Downvoted for bid bot abuse @steemflagrewards

I appreciate your honesty. I used bots because knowone gives love anymore. I've been on here for over 2 years now and in the beginning it was great people actually voted and voiced there opinions, now it's becoming more and more difficult to raise awareness so i bought the votes. I feel you should've have asked me why i did this first if it's becoming a problem. Yes if i had more time id go to the discord page or other Avenues to get the info out but being a cook working 80hrs plus a week i just haven't had any time. If you have better ways to help me without buying votes im all for it i really am. I have also asked people to give advice or help but nothing. I guess some feel its the last resort to getting our information out there. The platform also allows us to promote our post, so whats the difference? Is it because its a bot and not a real person getting the bonus curation money. When Jerry Banfield was doing witness voting people didn't care until the system changed so to me it seems a little contradictory of people with influence giving the little people some change every now and then. Im just a guy trying to build his retirement since chefs usually will never get one. Im very interested in any advice you can give in this because id rather save my hard earned steem then gamble it on bid bots. Thanks again for commenting anything in the video that you liked or that stood out?

I will be honest and say I haven't watched the video due to lack of time, but I scanned some of your other posts and it's not stuff I'm into. Like your other commenter I'm more of a science believer :)

Steem has changed since the last hardforks. Now we have free downvotes people are more willing to use them, but I've been doing it for years as I want to see a more honest distribution of rewards. I do not do it based on the content, but a real junk post with no effort and big paid rewards is more likely to get downvoted. Yours just stood out when I checked what was trending.

Steem was intended to reward people based on what others think. There was nothing to stop people creating paid bots, so they did and I think the effect was negative. It rewards the vote sellers and reduces what others can make. My downvotes are fairly small, but they return a little to the pool. I've had plenty of retaliation for this.

Some people are buying votes, but sacrificing the rewards to show they are doing it purely for promotion. I assume the profits you can make from this are lower now anyway. The way to build an audience is through talking to others, especially those who share your interests. I'm one of the top commenters on Steem and that has paid off in interaction and rewards as well as new friendships.

I would hope that the planned Steem community features will make it easier connect with people. Meanwhile you have to seek them out. I know there are others with common interests with you. Talk to them and they may comment, vote and resteem your posts.

I am not looking to drive people away from Steem. It should be open to all, but rewards should be earned. The excessive influence of the big accounts is a whole other issue, but is being addressed.

Thanks for commenting. But if you haven't watched how do you know how much time and effort went into this? This is a 3 part series which you watched none and i feel you are bullying me based on my decision to buy votes. Without a clear understanding of why i did this or do this. I find that this is the problem with society to many assumptions not enough dialogue. I make vides so people look and think outside the box. I really do appreciate your honesty it is something people are losing in my opinion. God bless

The flags are just to discourage you to buy votes and have nothing to do with the content. Using bid bots to reach on the trending page is something that is frowned upon here after #newsteem . Manual curation is on all time high, you'll get noticed easily if your content is good and needs push.

But it is not necessarily about the effort. There are finite rewards each day and they should go where the community decides. I do not buy votes or self vote as it is not up to me.

I'm not trying to be a bully and that is against my nature. I'm doing what I think is best for Steem. I think you will find most others who downvote this have the same motivation.

I have had multi dollar downvotes on my posts this week with no reason given. That's part of the freedom of Steem.
