Given the history of various Government's efforts to regulate human behavior, nothing would surprised me in this video.
And to think, I'm not into conspiracy theories?!
Still, I find it suspect the comments are not allowed on this video presentation?
Project MKULTRA, alone showed the insanity that groups like the C.I.A. will go to try measure.
That being stated, video's like this can be faked by anyone with the will to do so; so who need conspiracy theories?!
Proposing that the video is fake is the definition of a conspiracy theory.
It looks fake.
The voice over is so much better than the picture quality and in fact the two seem not to be running together .
And of course look at the introductory to the thing. Some bozo loser in a mask ripping off the movie
And then there is the silly buggers of pretending that there is a gene for religion. Might as well say there is a gene for beer. Nonsense. Genes don't predispose to religion
However I went surfing and found this form Indiana U
So while I believe the video is fake the potential for manipulation VIA a retrovirus is astonishing.
In molecular biology it is common to infect the DNA of a subject cell by using a virus that you took apart and loaded with the genetic sequence you which to code into the subject. The reason for doing it this way is because the subject cell is so much more complicated than the virus. A virus is easy to work on and where you can get one to go to the place in the DNA sequence of the target DNA you can get your gene placed quite elegantly.
So reasonably speaking it is not out of the question that if you altered the genetic structure of a paeron that you might also affect something about how their moods or mind works.
Reading the article I found it entertaining that the phrase "flirted with statistical significance" was used to describe the resulting data they gathered.
Sooooooo Ummmmmmm it wasn't earth shaking
The infection seemed to cause a very small increase in social activity. Logical, when one considers that the only way the flue can survive is by infecting more hosts.
It's proof that either the flue evolved in a way that was quite fortunate for the flue or that God in his ineffable wisdom loves microbes as much as he does us.
But to use the flue to change humans from being crazy religious to not so - - - laughable. patently laughable. You;d have to undo all the years a person was raised and acculturated to eliminate things like that.
Clockwork Orange anyone?
>>The voice over is so much better than the picture quality and in fact the two seem not to be running together .
The presenter obviously had a microphone. The audience statements/questions are much harder to hear.
>>And of course look at the introductory to the thing. Some bozo loser in a mask ripping off the movie
They Guy Fawkes mask has been adopted by Anonymous and other activists for a while now. It's more like he's ripping off the 80's TV show Max Headroom.
Regardless, here's a copy without the Guy Headroom, with better picture quality, that was uploaded three days before the video I initially posted: www.youtube.com/watch
>>And then there is the silly buggers of pretending that there is a gene for religion. Might as well say there is a gene for beer. Nonsense. Genes don't predispose to religion
And you're absolutely positive about this because...?
Some info on the VMAT2 gene being discussed in the video, aka "God Gene:" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_gene
"A number of scientists and researchers are highly critical of this theory; Carl Zimmer, writing in Scientific American, questions why "Hamer rushed into print with this book before publishing his results in a credible scientific journal." In his book, Hamer also writes "Just because spirituality is partly genetic doesn't mean it is hardwired.""
That's from your Wiki link
You don't have genes that predispose you to specific behavior. Rage aggression passivity are both nature and nurture There is no gene that says you will enjoy collecting butterflies. They may be genetic sequences that might make you a little more acquisitive. And that coupled with a genetic gift of good color vision and acuity along a plenitude of socialization and education might cause you to be a butterfly collector.

Of course, since when is fraud not intentionally formed as conspiratorial intention from inception?
What anyone or any-group would want can range from simple mischief to something as insane as the self delusions of Aum Shinrikyo?!
