    Buzz “Balls” Aldrin tweets a dire warning after falling ill in Antarctica: “We are all in danger. It is evil itself.” What’s going on here? Is he just messing with us? Or are we all about to experience the bone-chilling terror of an invading horde of refrigerated reptilians?

    Does this video prove that Christian charismatic Kim Clement predicted the Trump presidency in 2007?

    How do peanut butter, Queen, and Berenstain Bears prove the existence parallel universes? Let’s play the Mandela Effect game!

    Great episode, guys.  I enjoy the bonus episodes as much (if not more) than the doc-focused episodes.

    Adam, I appreciate that you’re trying to understand those that voted for Trump.  While I think prophecies had little to do with it, I too was/am surprised at how much support Donald received from the Christian base.  Take Jerry Falwell’s endorsement for example (president of Liberty University).  His endorsement came during the Republican primaries and it was baffling to me.  I was a Ted Cruz supporter throughout the primary and figured a Falwell endorsement would go the way of Cruz.  But it didn’t happen.

    And let me tell you, voting for Trump was painful for me.  Not because I couldn’t decide between Trump and Clinton — that decision was easy.  My struggle was with understanding how to vote for a guy that had drug my candidate through the dirt:  insulting him, his eligibility and citizenship, his wife.  Trump even accused Raphael Cruz of having some involvement in the JFK assassination.

    But what killed me the most about the Trump nomination was knowing that such a huge opportunity had been lost.  Leading up to the election, I was thrilled about the deep field that the Republicans were offering.  Cruz, Rubio, Paul, Carson — we had some superb options.  And each one had the ability to articulate Conservative principles in a way that I thought could really help people understand the contrast between “us and them” (right vs. left).

    Instead, we ended up with a candidate that could barely articulate a thought — let alone our principles. It was very disappointing.

    But in the podcast, you mentioned that some Christians viewed him as a ball of clay — in that he could be molded.  On the contrary, I think Christians knew the reality of the alternative (Clinton) and were willing to accept an unknown quantity as a gamble.

    Wan to know why Trump won?  Idiots kneeling during the national anthem.  Laws forcing shared bathrooms.  Safe spaces.  Trigger warnings.  Protests (riots and looting).  Planned Parenthood.  Clinton corruption (deleted emails, the foundation). The mainstream media.  The list goes on and on.

    Trump didn’t win this election.  The Left lost this election — and they lost it deservingly.

    Obviously, this is just my opinion.  But as someone who hated Trump and still voted for the guy, I like to think I’m the sort of person you’re trying to understand.

    Great episode….  loved it.  The prophecy was very creepy.   That prophet creeps me out.  I think the religious right wants to usher in Armageddon.   You need to do a show on Dominion Theology.

    Yes, there are those who, for example, support Israel only because of its supposed role in end-time prophecies. This kind of freaks me out.

    I have to agree with you, Brad.  The establishment (coastal and cultural elites) have been driving several agendas that a lot of Americans don’t like or are fed up with.  Trump capitalized on this resentment and it propelled him to the White House.  Now, whether or not he was cynically exploiting this resentment or sincerely feels the same way, remains to be seen.  Either way his instincts were right.
    I’m willing to give the guy a chance, same way I would if Hillary had won.  I didn’t like either candidate, but I did sense the way the wind was blowing, and I’m reserving judgment before definitively declaring it an ill wind.  I wish others would do the same.

    i found the mandela effect segment espesially enjoyable! its allways funny to hear what universe other people is  from 😉

    have you heard about the mandella effect of the clint eastwood interviewclip. the one where the interviewer ask him why he allways is so cool. and he flicks a cigarett from a package from his shirtpocket and catch it in his mouth… and says something like “what do YOU think”… the only problem with this story is that it has never happend. or there is no evidence that it has…

    when i first heard about this clip i started to do a little experiment, and asked my colleges if they have seen the clip. i was quite baffled to hear that out of 5, one had heard about the clip from a friend, and 2 had actually seen the clip. and i waited to say that the clip dosent exist, and just asked them out about all the details. they could tell about the clip in such detail that i started to actually believe that the clip is real, well ofc the clip CAN be real, i mean this was long before internet, and analog film is not forever.

    thats quite interesting, that just because there is no evidence on the internet, and this clip actually could have happend, but just didnt stick on the internet somewere, people just stop to believe in that they have seen it. both of my colleges that was sure to have seen the clip, and could tell about it in such detail just gave up when i told them that the clip dosent exist, and after they googled it.

    have any of you “seen” the clip? i can just hope that someone has this on a dusty VHS somewhere in a box in the basement… hehe!

    Very interesting. You wouldn’t by chance be from Sweden would you? The reason I ask is that the rumor seems to have originated there. A lot of people speculate it may have happened on a Swedish talk show. Here’s a couple of threads (which I’m sure you’ve seen) with people discussing it:

    I guess we’ll have to keep searching…

    Hi everyone. I came across the podcast a few months ago when I was searching for information regarding the various theories about The Shining presented in Room 237 and have been a listener ever since.

    The parallel universe idea intrigues me. I’m an engineer by training (undergraduate and graduate), but I’m of the mindset that the entirety of math and physics are just models that we use to explain and predict the behavior of our world. And while we scientists and engineers can fairly accurately predict the physical world, in the end they are still just models and not QUITE 100% true.

    There are fairly good thought experiments supporting the existence of other universes. The one I think is the most plausible is that differential cooling of the universe post-big bang (or whatever genesis event created the universe… the big bang is likely not it) caused significant enough spacetime distortions that there are other physical universes that occupy the same general vicinity of our own. Essentially, we all started as one universe but diverged as the localized spacetime environments separated. There’s no scientific reason why the other universe(s) would be filled with our dopplegangers, but it’s a fun idea. But just because the idea itself isn’t scientific doesn’t mean there isn’t the possibility that it wouldn’t occupy the volume in our theories that aren’t quite true.

    Stranger things have happened. Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle allows for the possibility that an electron can spontaneously and briefly transport itself to any position in the known universe and then just as quickly return to its original location. Never been directly observed obviously, but it’s in the realm of possibilities. That phenomenon is also sort of responsible for how electron microscopes work.

    Thanks for joining the forum, RandomAccess. Very interesting stuff. We’re definitely going to be doing more podcasts on this idea and how it might be related to consciousness. There’s an interesting book called The Physics of Consciousness: The Quantum Mind and the Meaning of Life by Evan Harris Walker that you might be interested in (if you aren’t already familiar with it). Just skip the interludes about his deceased girlfriend, as they bog down what is otherwise a very science-based treatment of the subject.

    I agree with you about the math. Though the equations (which I don’t pretend to understand) are great at modeling the universe and our physical reality, what I do understand is that mathematics is just another language and, therefore, limited in its ability to explain everything.

    Welcome aboard the Magical Mystery Train.

    Hey, John – I didn’t know you knew The Physics of Consciousness! That’s one of my favorite books! I can’t believe we’ve never spoken about it.
