Numerous empirical studies encompassing decades of research all have resulted in similar findings. The consensus of these studies, conducted by people with those PhD thing-ies, is that those entrenched in both End of Time or Conspiracy Theories as their operating systems are more likely to be less intelligent and less ambitious than others.
Researchers don't know whether this is a chicken/egg issue, but they consider that each of these factor into it. So whether it is the chicken/egg or the egg/chicken, these things are facts:
a. Being entrenched in End of Time beliefs robs one of intellectual exploration, ambition and motivation. It also engenders a persona of fear and paranoia. Confirmation bias becomes their master, and they live their lives accordingly (why explore/travel/learn when your beloved is a comin' soon). End of Time beliefs/practices are a disease. An infection. A malaise. They contribute to the de-evolution of our species, hamper progressive social, environmental changes and progress. Dummfukks are too stupid to realize that we live in the best time ever. Which time period would you end of timers prefer to live in? If you pick any time period before the mid 20th century your life expectancy would be between 24 and 34 and most of your babies/children would die before they were 5.
So pick one, dummbfucks. No running water. No central HVAC. No medical care of note. You break something on your body and it is going to be bent and malformed until you die. You get a skin condition and it will be your friend until you die. Get a tooth knocked out? Just hope you live in Arkansas. You want to be warmer? Grab an axe or go a fetchin'. You want to be cooler? Good luck with that.
And yet you end of timers are firmly entrenched in your paranoia and can't wait for your beloved to slaughter billions. Just for you. Fine. Keep it. Just stop trying to spread it to others.
b. Being entrenched in a Conspiracy Theorist mentality does many of the same things. It can rob one of motivation and ambition (why try when everything/everyone is conspiring against you?), and it can engender the same fear and paranoia. The Donald seems to be an exception. It is an infection. A malaise. A disease. It contributes to the de-evolution of our species, and nothing, nothing good can come from this mindset. Keep it to yourselves or people like me will respond as needed to stop the infection.
c. Lack of self control: Why is it that the End of Timers and the Conspiracy Theorists simply cannot keep this shit to themselves? Ego? Narcissism? That special feeling of being unique? Compensating for a lack of accomplishment in their lives? All of the above? We get it End of Timers and Conspiracy Theorists. We do.
You compensate for your own lack of ambition, education and accomplishment by telling the rest of us just how very special you are with your special knowledge that we don't have and that bad bad things are going to happen to us while you will be safe and secure. Y'all keep it up. In the future, as the present, you will be calling people like us lord and master, and we will be your benevolent owners and you will be our pets.
DFers. I can help you remove the chains and shackles that bind you and wean you from the opiates of your addictions.
But you have to let me.
