  • 16.48 my phone brought me here on its own accord so I thought I would listen into what it was about without looking at the screen my uncocious thought was this sounds like a mind wash of verbal coded talk or sort of suggested words of negativity planted in the mind, I don't know for sure but thing is I always listen to the gut reaction, your eyes decieve you came up first my unthinking mind said so without looking at the guy doing the talk I was presented with that up above . Felt compelled to share with you , because if I perceived that surely definitely more will too unless no one else in the world hears it than I guess I think too deeply 🤣🤣🤣☺️☺️☺️😜 l 16.48 was the time on talk where I was placed

  • This guy is the greatest kind of speaker in the world. First, he has highly interesting material, 2nd, he entertains - we laugh and "oooo" and "ahhh", 3rdly, his rapid fire voice is very clear and doesn't leave you wondering what he just said. This is my opinion, and I do feel somewhat qualified, having been trained by incredible teachers.....preparing me to teach and do corporate presentations throughout my career. He is a master-speaker in my book!

  • Rife with deception! Rock at 9:37 isn't a small rock. Image was taken from space and that's a large area shown with the rover photoshopped in as well as lots of airbrushing. Don't believe me? Get a magnifying glass and look closely. I can see several structures. Look at the brown shaded area at about 11 o'clock. Air brushed over a structure which is not naturally occurring. Every image I've seen of mars shows evidence of a past civilization. Do you honestly think that we have sent rover after rover and probe after probe to Mars to study the rocks and sand? The same is true of our moon. Take a thorough up close look and catch a glimpse of what is really there or you can continue to enjoy the "rocks" they paint up and parade in front of you.

  • Thats awesome but also sort of funny because it already happened so the play by play call is waaaay after it all already happened. Like a sports announcer yelling GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAL!!! 5 minutes late on every shot. By the time he's done yelling GOAL! Its time to start the next one. 🤣 Now lets find some alien bacteria. Wouldn't be cool if we sent a permanent sensor box that a rover bolted to a rock that and had retractable solar panels so it could hide them during storms. It would take sensor data but also play indefinitely all of the music ever created from Earth? Mozart 1 minute, 2 Live Crew the next. No one on Earth would hear it but it would play anyways. Just for giggles . 🤓

  • As long as there is soil on the planet Mars, it is natural and logical that the planet has witnessed life just like the earth, because dirt can only exist with the presence of water and plants, especially trees, so the planet Mars was where life was, and the evidence is its soil.

    • @Gary Ballard The ORIGINAL Blue Marble image was taken with a camera using film at 18,000 miles away. Nothing digital, nothing pieced together, nothing photoshopped since there was no photoshop in 1972. I realize you don't care about facts that prove you wrong and you'll cry "fake" at anything shown to you that kills your fantasy but that photo is a fact that only flat earthers deny. It is one of the most reproduced photos in history for a reason. Now go ahead and say it's "fake" like I know you will.
