This guy spews insanity buzzwords as fast as Kitchen I think.

I think at this stage we've progressed to the point where Joan Ocean isn't really that crazy any more.

This person seems to have a relatively large vocabulary and better grasp of the English language than most subjects of the podcast.

That honestly makes me kind of happy.

Yeah but his sanity is right down there with Joan Ocean and Dr. Rev. John Kitchin.
Gyro, November 23, 2015, 09:56:52 am

I'm sorry, but I don't think anyone rivals Kitchin.
Ambious, November 23, 2015, 10:13:46 am

Kitchin was at least reasonably comprehensible. His beliefs were completely insane but he expressed them in a relatively clear way. This guy, on the other hand, I'm still trying to figure out what the hell he's talking about.

Joan Ocean now strikes me as less crazy and more incredibly gullible.

When you guys said conscious birth I honestly thought he meant that the BABY would be made conscious.

Hey I haven't finished the episode yet but I'm here to tell you you're fucking morons https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agape

Agape, an actual Greek word, actually does refer to another meaning of 'love' and you all need to go to church

This is one of those moments in which I really wish Toast had been on the show. He'd have known that.

Agapé!

I knew of the word. I also knew that, as an English speaker, if you don't want people to think you're talking about something being wide open, you'd best put that acute accent mark over the E. When Lemon pronounced it the way he did, he effectively conveyed that the accent mark was not present in the text.

I retract my previous statement. Everyone but Isfahan, go to church.

(I don't expect people to use Greek accents in English text but hell, maybe I should.)

The English language has tried its hardest to get rid of accent marks by allowing vowel sounds to be altered through the use of things like silent vowels (e.g. a silent E on the end of "bar" changes the pronunciation of the A sound in "bare"), but knowing why they exist is handy for when you encounter loan-words from other languages like French and Greek. For example, in an English reading, the acute accent turns the neutral or silent reading of E into a long A sound. I don't know how it works for other languages, but that's what it does for English marking.

One of our schticks on the podcast is that we generally read what's written as it's been spelled, and since "agape" is its own word in English, Lemon did the same thing I would have done, even knowing what "agapé" is.

(Unless the accent mark actually was in the text and Lemon didn't read it right, in which case he was totally wrong to do that and shame on him!)

Agape language stuff aside, I really want to play these. I'm really tempted to buy the complete pack, but I don't want to give this guy my address.

I was curious so I checked out the guy's site, which looks exactly like you'd think this kind of site would, and he really does spell it "agape" without an accent mark.

I'm still not sure this part was meant to be him bitching about old-fashioned people. Are we sure he doesn't think he did time travel at some point? Or alternatively, are we sure he isn't a for-real time traveller? Because them being a time-traveller would probably explain a lot about orb design.

Of course he didn't time travel. Who do you think he is, Dr. Fred Bell?
