Does a subject threaten you? Create a swarm of obvious hoaxes around it.
The excuse “I did it to show how easy it is to fake this” is not a suitable excuse for committing fraud. If the subject is so easy to debunk, why do you need to manufacture hoax propaganda?
One form of entertainment which SSkeptic acolytes seem to enjoy performing as a service to impress their pseudo-intellectual mentors, is the tactic of posting obviously hoaxed videos to the internet and YouTube as tour de force methodology in discrediting the subject matter involved in the videos. Take for instance the STRANGE SOUNDS HEARD ALL AROUND WORLD 2012 series of videos currently viral on the internet.
“What bothers me is not the fact that a specific subject has been discredited; what concerns me, and what the public at large is missing, is that this discrediting machine can never be switched off.” – The Ethical Skeptic
I love keeping a power drill for work projects on my sailboat when underway. But I do not leave it laying around on the deck running unattended. Most of the videos involved in this Strange Sounds 2012 Campaign have been produced by persons seeking to gain attention to themselves and their videos, as a series of hoaxes, so that the creations can subsequently be cited as such by the prominent internet debunkers (An example of a malicious version of this can be found here Malicious Fake-Hoax Video). This is a form of partnership, with the Fake-Hoaxers becoming the unwitting or not participants in a machinery of deception. Machinery which is honing its teeth on clueless people and easy subjects… for now. In many cases the video posters themselves state freely that the videos are indeed fakes; nonetheless, they are then subsequently cited by the SSkeptic Cabal as constituting evidence of a hoax. This is a partnership of fools and can in the end, only serve to obfuscate and blind us to ANY subject at large. Take the video example below, posted by an agenda-biased but affable gentleman with the user name V00D00SIXXX to YouTube on Jan 21, 2012. This gentleman has genuinely debunked many of the strange sound viral videos, and I applaud that effort in the generic sense. The problem is, that the videos he cites as “evidence” – were posted in their originality with the intent of being example fakes in the first place. So what indeed have we accomplished? Indeed, there is a surreptitious and deeper goal to all this. One of which I believe that VooDooSixxx, as unwitting pawn, is not even aware.
We actually do not know if there are any strange sounds being heard at all. And now we never will.
Now, I do not find credibility in the Strange Sounds 2012 subject being passed off in serious videos, without further data. So I am not losing any sleep over the strange sounds issue. However, the strange sounds concern me less than do the strange and unethical actions of the SSkeptic Cabal. As an Ethical Skeptic, I bristle at this condition: We can no longer ascertain data through the cacophony of willful deceit and fabricated counter-propaganda. VooDooSixxx even includes the malicious, later self-exposed fake video cited above, as evidence of hoaxing. We are manufacturing the evidence as well as making the conclusion? Why?
If the subject is so easy to debunk, why would one need allies to manufacture evidence in support of its debunking? Moreover, if one were ethical – then why would you cite as supporting ‘evidence,’ data which you KNOW, and was advertised in the video itself, to be made up in the first place?
This is a key method of Social Skepticism, and is promoted to accomplish the goal of Stooge Posing and Hoax-Baiting. Many videos on YouTube are crafted by SSkeptics to stand as evidence cited by other skeptics – in an epidemic of Hoax-Baiting, while even other SSkeptics are paid to create hoax videos on YouTube by third parties seeking to sway public discourse in and around a disfavored subject, and quash any relevant serious material on the subject. VooDooSixxx even includes footage in his video from a 2011 Comet Elenin Apocalypse promoter, a clear case of Associative Condemnation in order to explain why he is making a prejudged conclusion in crafting his debunking video. While he is more than likely correct in his assessment, Comet Elenin has little to do with this evidentiary pathway. This by no means constitutes skepticism, is by no means ethical, and is by no means representative of the Scientific Method.
Fake-Hoaxes as a tactic of Deskeption are dangerous. They are fast becoming a tour de force methodology on the part of the Deskeption Cabal. Trained groups of sycophants create these materials at the behest and example of the SSkeptic community, and for fun. Others subsequently discover the ‘hoaxes’ through being “Oh so smart” in their role as Junior SSkeptics in training in an effort to impress their mentors in the Cabal.
The excuse “I did it to show how easy it is to fake this” is not a suitable excuse for committing fraud.
Fake-Hoaxing is dangerous, willful pseudoscience and deceit.
Obama Birth Certificate – SSkeptic Fake-Hoaxing in Action
A PURPOSEFUL forgery. For the SSkeptic, it is all about protecting institutions by any means necessary. The Obama Birth Certificate is one such serious example and form of a Fake-Hoax, albeit slightly different in its logic from the Strange Sounds video issue. A copy of the birth certificate with 17 or more OBVIOUS evidences of inconsistency/apparent adjustments was released to the public last year. The layer tampering was so obvious, that to the reasonable public mind, surely anyone seeking to release a fake birth certificate would never commit such errors. A presumption is therefore foisted by the SSkeptic Cabal, that the errors must have been committed at the originating Hawaii offices back from 1961, and whether fraud or not, therefore a more legitimate birth certificate cannot be located. In this brilliant strategy, the fake-hoax version of the birth certificate exonerates the publishers of the certificate from any crime, as they would be stupid to release such a fake, were they indeed ill-intentioned – and we, the victims are left fully unable to ascertain the truth in the matter. Take as Deskeption closure this ‘fall right in line’ statement by Nathan Goulding in the National Register Online from April 27, 2011, concerning the certificate
“What’s not plausible is that the government spent all this time manufacturing Obama’s birth certificate only to commit the laughably rookie mistake of exporting the layers (with the apparent errors)… Let’s leave it at that.”
Move along folks, nothing to see here.
