The Conspiracy Theory

Posted by Admin on Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

After my last post I came along an article on Wikipedia and I realised that I have to rectify my sloppy inaccurate description of the circumstances of Stanley Meyer’s passing. Let me correct this statement by citing from
Wikipedia about Stanley Meyer’s death:

“Stanley Meyer died suddenly on 21 March 1998 after dining at a restaurant. An autopsy report by the Franklin County, Ohio coroner concluded that Meyer had died of a cerebral aneurysm, but conspiracy theorists insist that he was poisoned to suppress the technology, and that oil companies and the United States government were involved in his death.” (end of quote)

“Conspiracy Theorist” is an expression often found in debates on public discussion sites on the internet or in mainstream press media articles and labels people who believe in the existence of a small elitist group of very wealthy individuals, who operate through a sophisticated and interlaced network of organisations (commercial, political, philanthropic and ideological) and that these individuals and organisations followed a hidden agenda to proactively and effectively control society through politics, economy and events and by influencing public opinion and behavior with the help of the mainstream mass media, which they are believed to own entirely.

Conspiracy theorist often suspect an untold version to the official story or a concealed truth behind a certain event. For example the invasion of Irak is considered by conspiracy theorists to be motivated by the desire to get access to the Iraqi oil fields and that the 9/11 event had been a false flag operation executed by agencies of the PTB (powers that be) to initiate and justify such an invasion, while the official version targeted Saddam’s assumed WMD arsenal and his suspected link to Al Quaeda – a terrorist organisation lead by Osama Bin Laden which is believed to have attacked America on 9/11 – and was motivated entirely by the need to protect democracy and world security.

Conspiracy theorists also believe that any invention or discovery by an individual or by an independent organisation, that would jeopardize vested interests (another theory), would be suppressed by PTB and it’s agencies and that PTB is applying various tactics (such as blackmail, ridicule, threats, defamation, coercion, murder etc.) to silence dissenting subjects. Further Conspiracy theorists believe that many mainstream scientists and faculties as well as designated public relations agencies, ghostwriters and specialised journalists are directly or indirectly hired and paid by PTB or its agencies for the purpose of publicly disapproving of such potentially competing inventions and developments by stirring controversy, by labelling such inventions and discoveries with attributes of disapproving character, e.g. “junk science”, “pseudo science”, “snake oil” etc. or by repetitive citation of certain established scientific dogmata (such as the laws of thermodynamics) in an attempt to disprove feasibility and to disencourage further follow up.

One can find conspiracy theorists in almost any field where massive profits are realised by a relatively small group of people or by very influential organisations or by a syndication – official or presumed clandestine – of such organisations, and where underlying structures and activities for the procurement of such profits could be considered exclusive or monopolistic in their nature.

A more elaborate article on “Conspiracy Theory” can also be found on Wikipedia.org

How to Qtranslate the German Date in this purple Tem plate?

Posted by Admin on Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Last night I was spending quite some time figuring out how to get qtranslate translate the Dates of posts and the current date on the upper right of my purple tem plate correctly. As you can see, I somehow managed, but I have to confess that I was reaching through trial and error and finally applying some methods which may make somebody more PHP savvy than me raise his/her eyebrows: I have actually hardcoded the words “Posted by” and “on” into the german analogs “Gepostet durch” and “am” into the template files by using an if/else statement with ‘qtrans_getLanguage()’ function. A similar statement I used to get the actual date and the slogan in the header translated. I realized, that many people seem to experience some difficulties with date/time in qtranslate and I just want to share my experiences here as it might be useful to somebody else experiencing the same dfficulties.

I this template the posting dates are coded as the_date() and the actual date is called by date().

the_date() function in the posts translates dates without difficulties with my chosen settings, but I could not get qtranslate to translate date() in the header section and as I already mentioned, my knowledge of PHP is quite limited, so I could – inspite of all trials – not getting anything to work apart from using strftime() for the actual date.

My settings in qtranslate are as follows:

in Settings/Language/Avanced Settings/Date Time Conversion I selected “use emulated date function” and I edited the Language file like this: For German I enter ‘l, j. F, Y’ (without quotes) into the date field (time field can remain unchanged in my case, as I don’t use time indication). For English I enter ‘l, F jS, Y’ (without quotes – and again I don’t bother about time).

The if/else statements applied look like this:

to translate text / date in the posting date

<?php if (qtrans_getLanguage() == “en”) _e(‘Posted by’); else _e(‘Gepostet durch’)?> <?php the_author(); ?> <?php if (qtrans_getLanguage() == “en”) _e(‘on’); else _e(‘am’)?> <?php the_date(); ?>

to translate the actualdate

<?php if (qtrans_getLanguage() == “en”) echo date(‘l, F j, Y’) ; else echo strftime(‘%A, %d. %B %Y’); ?>

I find it rather cool that I can translate the Header slogan with this method too:

<?php if (qtrans_getLanguage() == “en”) bloginfo(‘description’); else _e(‘ENERGIE – subtil bis grob’) ; ?>

Final remark: above said – it all applies with my theme and my two languages English and German and I am in no way able to go beyond that in my explanations: I am sorry I just don’t have the time, FREE ENERGY or the in-depth knowledge to answer questions any better in the comments. However you can ask them anyway, some genius might come across to answer them for me…

I feel it like Edison, when he failed a thousand times to create his light bulp and finally had a bright result – though I preferred I could do like Nikola Tesla who just figured it all out in his mind and every of his creations, when translated to the material plane, just worked on the first attempt.
