Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on November 05, 2021, 06:27:11 PMApparently, the belief was that JFK Jr (deceased 1999) and JFK Sr (deceased 1963) were going to reveal themselves to be alive (and in Sr's case, over 104 years old), declare "everything" since 1879 (?) as illegal (?), and appoint mr trump as president, whereupon he would immediately resign and JFK Jr would become the new president
Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on November 05, 2021, 06:53:00 PMthey still continue to believe, fervently and with all their hearts, that it is all true
Quote from: Fambo Number Mive on November 05, 2021, 06:45:36 PMSo these Q people hate Democrat president Biden yet think that JFK and his son, who could be seen as more liberal as Biden at least on domestic issues, will make everything ok?
Quote from: Zetetic on November 05, 2021, 06:58:51 PMI think you have to think carefully about what "believe" and "true" mean here, given your previous paragraph about faith and the significance, or not, of predictions manifesting.Saying that you think JFK Jr is coming back and spending a pleasant-enough day out with some like-minded people in Dallas isn't a massive hardship, although it's a little bit of commitment.
Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on November 05, 2021, 07:00:39 PMI suppose I was highlighting the commitment more than anything else. It's one thing to post anonymously that you believe XYZ. Its another to take a day off work, drive to Dealey Plaza and stand in the rain wearing your MAGA hat to say the pledge of allegiance with strangers.
Quote from: Zetetic on November 05, 2021, 07:03:40 PMBut they're not just strangers, they're people that you share some rough values with and it's nice not to feel alone with those.

Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on November 05, 2021, 06:59:05 PMThe press have largely moved away from covering them
Quote from: Zetetic on November 05, 2021, 07:10:05 PMFervently, insofar as they did turn out, but perhaps not seriously in the same way that they might believe in the resale and scrap values of a second-hand 2004 Toyota Camry (to pick one of your examples, that these people might also run car dealerships).
Quote from: chveik on November 05, 2021, 07:26:19 PMhave they? that's strange because a story like this would be a perfect distraction from that new election defeat

Quote from: jobotic on November 06, 2021, 09:21:29 AMI'm sure a lot of them don't believe it, they're just having fun.
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on November 05, 2021, 07:34:17 PMYou'll have to explain the difference between these two. Do you have a normal, real-world example of a belief which is held fervently but not seriously?
Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on November 05, 2021, 06:53:00 PMIn a way, it is better for their predictions to be wrong, because that just allows them to demonstrate how much faith they have by continuing to believe.
Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on November 06, 2021, 12:43:40 PM I have a different degree of belief in where I left the cheerios?
