Attn: Steve, Billy and others

Came across this, and other links on the page, and found them very well produced. Old news really, more detailed and more info, for video production. Link to dangers of aspartame use and other goodies.
http://personalgrowthcourses.net/video/gmo_food_genetically_modified
Thought you and Billy and a few others might find these educational and.....other things.
For those who don't, ya' might want to start researching and thinking about seedsaving.

Look at the other articles:

The site is dedicated to Personal Growth Courses Oh wow. That is just boggling. But wait there's more. How about "The Hidden Knowledge Course". Where is my robe and my athame? Where is my power-charged crystal, my rabbit's foot, my car that runs on water...... Oh my goodness I must get some laying on of hands before I faint.
"Conspiracy Theories Old and New" would be better. "Internet Hoaxes We Know and Love" would be better still.
I probably won't be able to post much more as "they" will be on to me. They can trace you through the ether you know. If in the next few days the person posting under my name is all sweetness and light and agrees with the last person who typed (no matter what they say) you will know "they" caught me and fitted a mind control helmet. If you don't hear another word then I am being vivisected out about alpha centauri somewhere.
Using this site as a reference for the risks of GMOs and the benefits of seed saving is doing that cause no good at all.

Do you always advocate for throwing out the baby with the bath water, David?

I am not saying that because so much of their stuff is wrong all of it _must_ be wrong but why would you shlep through all that nonsense to get to a few nuggets? It may be logically possible that everything they say about GMO issues is well reasoned and supported by evidence and the waffle about mind control etc can and should be safely ignored. But from the point of view of winning hearts and minds using such a site as reference is not how I would go about it.
If I wanted to choose an advocate for a particular point of view I would at try to get one that was not showing such poor standards in presentation and explanation of material and particularly did not repackage loony-tunes issues for the sake of commercial gain. With supporters like that who needs detractors.

That would make it once a day then that it was right. So, would you say that it was always wrong?

Well, we could just recommend that everyone rush out and rent the movie at your local video store. Where else do you suggest that we look at it for free? If the web site has wacky info, they probably are getting credibility from posting "The Future of Food". I must admit that I haven't been through the site, but then I have time constraints because I have to work. Maybe you could go over the highlights of some of their wackier assertions.

Snerk! I'd say this is a perfect site for discourse on the evils of GMO.

Strange proteins (re: allergens) may end up being the biggest problem with GMOs.

The problem with us poor unwashed minions billy, is we didn't get picked to be on the personal mission from God. We don't have the tin foil hat advantage your eco-fringely squad does to see all these evils as clearly as you portend.
But do keep defending this "site" as one of yours. I see you already used potatoes as your anchor linkage and diversion.

has to wonder about what is going into your body,

These films didn't arise from a single source. The BBC produced the "Power of Nightmares", a film about the rise of the neo-cons. "The Future of Food" is on sale at many organic grocery stores. The following is a bibliography of major articles, research, and publications relevant to the issues discussed in The Future of Food: Books Kimbrell, Andrew. Fatal Harvest: The Tragedy of Industrial Agriculture. California: Island Press 2002. Smith, Jeffrey M. Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You're Eating. Fairfield, IA: Yes! Books 2003. Lapp, Marc, Ph.D. & Bailey, Britt. Against the Grain: Biotechnology and the Corporate Takeover of Your Food. Monroe, ME: Common Courage Press 1998. Fowler, Cary & Mooney, Pat: Shattering: Food, Politics, and The Loss of Genetic Diversity. Tuscon, AZ: The University of Arizona Press 1990. Charles, Daniel: Lords of the Harvest: Biotech, Big Money, and The Future of Food. Cambridge, MA: Perseus Publishing 2001.
As for Media Censorship you need look no further than http://www.projectcensored.org/ .
I can't speak to each of these subjects but I suggest that you make your own inquiries, and make up your own mind, based on the facts that you find, and not just dismiss them based on the fact that Cold Fusion was a hoax.
Can we have a little critical thinking here?

In RE: your nntp header: X-Newsreader: Forte Agent 2.0/32.652     Dat ol' "ignore thread" worked well for me. However, I'm configured to start a new thread if subject changes....(sigh)     OB rec.gardens: Got my grocery store garlic cooling in the fridge. Plan to get it into the ground in December, although, daytime temps in 70's and 80's are common then. As a rule, we don't get freezing temps before January or February and even then duration is considered in hours, not days. If I have any success at all, next year I'll be ready with some interesting Gulf coast acclimatized variety. If you purchase from an online source, how early in the calendar year do you order?

You can order anytime, but they won't ship until Spring.
