  1. I don't think Adam knows what "random event" means. Anyone who thinks that what happened on 9/11 was random needs their head examined. The President of the USA is murdered live on TV in 1963, but don't panic, it's just a random event. They happen all the time. Wake up, people, and think for yourselves, because this clown won't.

  2. While Funny, the CIA, FBI DOD and countless Journalists are finding more and more evidence of russian tampering, hacking and propaganda. Was Trump involved? That's what Mueller is trying to find out, however Russia has saved his bacon and given him countless loans in spite of his never pay policy, for no apparent reason.

  3. Once you realize the universe is existential, it can be terrifying . People will act in all kinds of strange ways. It makes people cynical, selfish and even psychotic, and it makes people miserable and frightened all the time. However, even though the odds are agsinst you , it's best to strive to be more compassionate and spiritual. If you learn anything from life or a religion,… learn that!

  4. except there is evidence from before the election of Russian meddling in our election, and that members of the Trump campaign were meeting with Russian officials. while Putin himself has stayed out of the spotlight, because it's Russia, what are the odds he was not involved?

    btw, if evidence does come to light that Putin was not involved in the meddling, I'll drop it, but right now looking at what has happened, it's not a leap like most conspiracy theories

  5. What if the government payed him to make this show to cover up for the kennedy shooting


  6. What is Rotogenflux Methods and how does it work? I hear many individuals their IQ score increased over 15 points with this intelligence boost program.

  7. There's a difference between being skeptical about things and buying into some half-baked conspiracy theory about the moon landing being faked or the earth being flat. He seems to be talking about conspiracies that not only lack evidence but have staunch evidence against them. Believing something that has a ton of evidence against it and almost nothing in favor of it because it 'could be true' is not critical thinking.

  8. So Democrats thinking Putin interfered in the US election is delusional paranoia? Akin to the GOP denying global warming? I smell false equivalence.

  9. The part of this episode on the moon landing made me think he could easily do an episode about ruining space.

  10. Also with the vaccines cause autism. Scientist have no idea what causes autism, so so many people come up with crazy reason why. People try to find a reason for the unexplained. You don't see people saying vaccines cause downs syndrome, because we know why it happens. Down syndrome is caused by a disjunction problem in meiosis, causing the child to have 3 chromosomes in the 21st pair. Autism has no known genetic or physiological diagnosis

  11. Conspiracies? Like that Russia hacked the election? Or of collusion with Russia? Or Comey and Russia?
