The Mabus Case.

Post by guest » Thu Oct 29, 2015 3:18 pm

WRITTEN ON BEHALF OF DENNIS MARKUZE BY A DEAR AND OLD FRIEND FROM A LONG LOST TIME!


1) What made you interested in JREF specifically, rather than other skeptics or debunkers active at the time?
The JREF, and especially the Amazing Meetings, acted as a training ground for producing a fresh breed of highly intelligent and aggressive atheists and skeptics, so it was natural that we had to focus our ideological attacks upon them. The Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge was used as a battering ram against so called “paranormal powers,” and it was a weapon that had to be smashed before it destroyed every last “paranormal” phenomenon in the universe.
James Randi preaches a militant and intolerant form of neo-fascism that masquerades as science and rationality. This new scientific totalitarianism is just as extreme as the religious fundamentalism it aims to eradicate, if not more so. This radical scientific intolerance aims at throwing in to the fire millennia of religious belief. Political correctness is the mask they use to destroy, annihilate, and eradicate the last vestiges of religious belief in the modern age. To destroy myth, mystery, and the religious was the open and aggressive agenda of the “new atheism,” and it was to be substituted with apparently certain scientific knowledge. Scientific control of nature would lead to the scientific control of man. This world-view reduces everything to calculable and controllable numbers or scientific symbols, and if phenomena could not be translated in to this math language, they were abandoned or destroyed. Capitalism did exactly the same thing. What was taking place in the ideological sphere was also occurring simultaneously in the economic sphere, as Marx predicted it would. Capitalism reduces everything to a $$$ sign, to an exchange value, and man finds his identity by how much money he makes living in this system. Unity is achieved by forcefully eradicating difference, the fascist method of solving problems; and science was used as the main weapon in this totalitarian assimilation. The JREF was aiming to create a barren desert wasteland that would only be populated by scientific artifacts; much like capitalism was aiming at imposing a dollar sign on everything. The JREF represents the ideological defence of the capitalist system.

People have been blind to this rapidly spreading atheist sub-culture taking place on the internet. It is highly organized, tightly knit, and militant against so-called "pseudoscience." They have the audacity to claim that God does not exist and get away with it unchallenged. No one is standing up against this threat to the Absolute.
Our new science overlords are to dictate to us what is real and what isn’t, and we must obey or face serious consequences. They are smarter than the rest of us and know what is good for us. They are a little too clever for themselves, and have the arrogance to mock the beliefs of the common man. A real democracy is tolerant of all views, it is inclusive and tolerant. Their scientific totalitarianism was the very real and concrete negation of democracy.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Rand ... Foundation
I had to do whatever was in my ever was in my power to combat what I saw as a vicious and deceptive ideology, namely, atheism.
2) How have you gone about beating the million dollar challenge? Do you have an experiment or demonstration to show people? Can you describe it?

For over 40 years a man by the name of James Randi, founder of the James Randi Educational foundation (JREF), has challenged anyone to provide proof of the paranormal and that he would pay them $1,000,000 if they could. Hundreds have tried and all have failed the test.
http://www.randi.org/site/index.php/1m-challenge.html
WE ACCEPTED THE CHALLENGE AND WE’RE GOING TO USE THE INTERNET AND COMPUTERS FOR OUR MASS DEMONSTRATION OF PARANORMAL POWERS.
How we won the paranormal challenge can be found here:
http://storify.com/deltoidmachine/how-w ... 000-parano
So by using science and technology we are going to prove the existence of the paranormal. But this is not a lab experiment but takes place under real-life conditions.

James Randi published a hateful and defaming book about Nostradamus called “The Mask of Nostradamus.” Basically Randi sets out to prove that Nostradamus was a fraud and that his writings are so vague and unspecific that they can be made to mean almost anything.

But we set out by using a few quatrains to disprove this vicious book of Randi’s. Nostradamus predicting the future with pin-point accuracy 500 years in advance would obviously constitute itself as “paranormal powers.” The only reception I received from the JREF when I presented this claim was from James Randi himself when he told me that a “child must of hijacked my computer.” His contempt has no limits. Apart from that, the JREF have done everything in their power to discredit me, to make me appear as a drug-addicted psychopath who spews out hate and death-threats at an incessant rate. This is the character assassination the JREF love to engage in because they can get away with it under the guise of political correctness. It is true I have experimented with drugs, but I have been 99% totally clean and sober for the last 7 years.
The JREF could never accept that Nostradamus was a genuine prophet because any proof of the paranormal would not only put an end to the million dollar paranormal challenge but would also mark the end of the JREF organization, because its entire credibility and message rests upon the challenge. Paying the money would bankrupt the organization, so they must do whatever it takes to survive, even if that means twisting and distorting the truth to save themselves. If they could discredit me then they could discredit my message, and this being the tactics of the JREF and its fellows.
3) You’re famous for talking about Nostradamus in your messages. When did you first learn about Nostradamus and his predictions, and what do you find so fascinating about them?

This is an interesting question. I remember pulling from the library while I was high school an edition of the Prophecies. Somehow I knew that Depeche Mode was going to be referenced inside. I just knew it. I told one my friends at the time what I thought and he said I was crazy. But we were sitting outside smoking some hash in the yard and I was flipping through the pages until we hit Century VIII, Quatrain 66 which says, “When the letters D.M. are found …” He looked at me in amazement and said, “You’re right!”

Nostradamus is for those who love the mysterious and the fantastic, for those who are bored with mundane everyday existence. The legends that surround his name are numerous. I think I contributed in preserving his legacy and name for a long time to come.



4) What are your religious and political beliefs, and when did they emerge?
My religious and political views are fusion of Marxism, Freudianism, and Christianity, a seemingly impossible combination. However, there is a happy marriage between them because they all share in the belief and practice of the liberation of man from intolerable physical and psychological conditions, and ultimately are united in their conception of the Promised Land. Although to answer these questions here would take too long I want to mention a few things about my core political beliefs. They center upon utter waste of intelligence used in the ideology of atheism, the destructiveness of capitalism, the importance of peace and disarmament for the planet, and the terrible costs of war. All this can be found in my storify link.

My first religious experience occurred at around the age of six. I experienced a phenomenon called astral projection. While asleep I was able to leave my body and look down upon myself sleeping. It was as if my body and soul were two complete different entities. Since then I have had numerous religious experiences, many of which are personal, and far too many to list or explain here.





5) How much of your daily life is devoted to your cause? Can you describe your day-to-day activities? What kind of work do you do? Have you made personal sacrifices in pursuit of your goal?

My day to day activities have been the same more or less for the last 20 years: shipping and selling used computers and monitors by the container load to so-called “backward” countries. One may ask how can someone who rants and raves about the destructiveness of science and technology work in the field? But I guess you need to work in the field to really experience it. One needs only to look and see how computers have been used for the total control of human life, in both the private and public spheres. NSA revelations of spying upon the entire American people were made possible thanks to computers. To Marx science and technology were the great liberators of human kind, but it was their destructive and repressive use under the capitalist mode of production that made them in to instruments of enslavement and control. Their great potential to liberate man from the violence of raw brutal nature is not to be minimized, but capitalism squanders this great potential in an never ending cycle of wars (i.e., imperialism), unnecessary gadgets, waste, manipulation of conscious and subconscious processes for commercial and political processes (i.e., advertising and the beauty industry). This inflicts great harm upon the human species, both in its physical and spiritual dimensions. The repressive capitalist system has created the material prerequisites for its liquidation, and for its replacement by an authentic socialist society. What we are witnessing is what Theodor Adorno called the totally “administered life,” one of complete technological and scientific domination of man under capitalism. The benefits of the Enlightenment turn in to their opposite, creating further fear and destruction, leading to the total integration of opposites and creating a society without opposition. As humans we have to fight for freedom even under the most adverse conditions. So my campaign has taken a lot from me, and I have had to make many sacrifices. I have suffered incarceration, slander, ridicule, public disgrace, and harassment from my enemies and critics. They are still pursuing me to this very day.











6) Do you regret any of the actions that led to your arrest? Will it lead you to change the way you campaign in future?

Finally. Yes, I do. To start I want sincerely from the depths of my heart apologize to Tim Farley and hope to make peace with him despite all the animosity that has existed between us. Several years ago I said certain things I should have never said, words that were totally inappropriate, inexcusable, and looking back I can see how they could affect someone in a really negative way. I think many people were affected, but Tim Farley the most. But at that time I was in a dirty war with skeptics who are constantly attacking one form of so-called pseudoscience or another, attacking the fundamental rights of people to believe whatever they want without outside interference, even if these beliefs were harmful or hurtful. This was not a battle of weapons but a war of ideas. I never had the intention meant to hurt him in any shape or form - that was not the point. I erroneously believed shock tactics would wake people to the Truth. The internet is a brutal place and you need a thick skin to survive on it. Tim Farley also published nasty commentary on me on his TAM blog and forum, always after my arrests. These are used all the time by my critics. They focus on the threats and not on the underlying message, which is that Nostradamus was one of the greatest writers of all time, and the only man capable of predicting the future with such stunning accuracy. The nasty blog posts drove me to engage in an ad hominems attack in rebuttal to his lengthy character assassinations on me, and on my storify page by I call him a "nightmare of the one-dimensional man." This is unfair and untrue, but the potential is there if he continues with his aggressive skeptical activities. Anyways, I am retired from debating skeptics; it just goes nowhere if they can't see the simple truth. No longer will I post on the topic and I expect that others stop posting on me, likewise. However this is necessarily contingent upon my critics in that they cease desist from harassing and persecuting me online and in real life, otherwise I would be forced back to my computer to defend my name against further slander and lies. We wish Farley all the best with his dog Blue (I have a dog that looks exactly the same!), and from what I hear, congratulations on his recent engagement. We must settle things like men, make amends for personal differences and human errors, and forgive - for we are all tainted by sin. The courts and the police are not the place to resolve ideological differences between real men. From all the hateful messages I have received from skeptics and atheists over the years, only a single nice one arrived, and it was from Tim Farley, wishing me and my family a happy holidays. Anyhow, I wish him a happy and healthy future with his family. I want to move on with my life and I wish the same to him. I want to end on peaceful and friendly terms with him despite all the fireworks of the past.

Hi Dennis! How are you today? What's the weather like where you are? Hope you are getting the medication and assistance you really need. Do you have a phone number so we can let your family know where they can reach you?

Dennis, did you actually watch the video you linked? I'm pretty sure you didn't, because it shows very clearly the claimant getting a very fair attempt, being treated with respect, and totally failing the challenge. He did not winning anything at all. He then went on to try and excuse himself from the failure, saying that as a Muslim and it was Ramadan, his "powers" were weak at the time.

So if you are saying that someone else's attempt at the challenge and failing is your attempt at the challenge and winning, you seriously need some help. Please get some as soon as you can. It will only do you good.

I am sure this sort of message has been posted on very many forums. Sadly, the message does not seem to be getting through.

Is it true that he is due in Court again soon? Seems he may be trying to present a more 'reasonable' face, and maybe in order to try to con the Court that he is harmless. Trouble is that while he continues to witter on about Nostradamus, reasonable is the last word anyone could use to describe him.

Alas, they are only legally concerned if he presents a clear danger to others or to himself, especially if he threatens people. Wittering on about Nostradamus and making insane prognostications is not considered "illegal" in itself. There's plenty of swivel-eyed shouting loons doing just that still wandering the streets today (and posting on forums). Just that they are considered "harmless". Dennis, on the other hand, has threatened people previously, and in the diatribe above alludes to stalking if not physically threatening a specific person. That alone should constitute breaking his previous court-imposed orders to cease and desist. But as to what the court will do with the evidence and Dennis himself I'm not sure.

Personally I feel he needs to be restrained, assessed and perhaps undergo proper treatment. Plenty of people are "angry" but there's something really wrong inside Dennis' head. But I'm no lawyer, doctor or trick-cyclist.

Dennis Markuze doesn't have any friends. So the first line is a lie. Then it goes downhill.

"D.M." is clearly a prediction of the coming of DangerMouse. The greatest secret agent of them all. It is hardly likely to have anything to do with a bunch of atheists from Basildon who wrote a song called "Personal Jesus" that Markuze, in his dribbling stupidity, thought was a christian song. Cwikey D.M.! As Penfold would say.

According to Tim "Krelnik" Farley, who Markuze references in his insane rant above, Markuze had a hearing on 20 January 2014; it was a short hearing and they scheduled a 2 hour hearing for 13 March 2014. Not sure if that's an actual trial or the preliminary hearing for a trial, but the fact that it's 2 hours long makes it different from the other hearings that have been happening.

Hundreds of death threats, to hundreds of people, including to a teenage girl who published a science blog. She didn't know who was sending the daily hate or where they lived, it could have been someone she saw at school for all she knew. She was genuinely in fear of her life, and she wasn't even an atheist or a skeptic. What exactly was the "underlying message"? Was it perhaps, "Dennis Markuze is a stupid dangerous crazy person who belongs in a cell"?

The many comedy highlights of Markuze's idiocy include the fact that he was banned from the David Icke forums, as referenced here: http://blog.matthewmiller.net/2010/04/h ... is-he.html

Listening to the tone and style of your ad hominems from people who have NO REAL FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE OF THE FACTS reveal that MARKUZE AND THE SKEPTIC GANG are a perfect marriage

he is only *responding* to a challenge initiated by skeptics themselves and THEY CAN'T ADMIT THEY LOST!

An Email Dennis Markuze received from Victor Baines of the Nostradamus Society of America:

http://www.nostradamususa.com/


“Hello there, I know all about James Randi and his bullshit. He had the chance to debate me at Yale University in 2002, however, for some reason he couldn’t do it, so he sent his attorney to debate me instead. Bock, bock, bock—-like a chicken—Randi was too scared to debate me. That’s a great example of how full of crap he is. Plus, he and his people use fraud and dirty tricks in their presentations. They never approached any paranormal claim using the scientific method.
A few years ago, some people blew the lid off of his million dollar paranormal challenge, and exposed it as “the fraud” that it was. They no longer have that as an active reality. Now it is gone. Paranormal stuff happens every day—who needs to prove it to James Randi?”

Good morning again Dennis! New username, I see? We CAN tell it's you. You're like a little child hiding under a blanket pretending he's not there.

Let's have a look at you most recent references.

1) Michael Prescott. Nutcase would-be author trying desperately to make the ancient historical joke that was Uri Geller fooling Targ and Puthoff into something real. Nearly as kooky as you, Dennis!

2) Michael Goodspeed, on Rense website. Dennis, EVERYTHING on the Rense site is pure bullshit. You fall for that then I have a harbour bridge you might like to buy.

3) Victor Baines from the Nostradamus Society. Seriously, you do hang out with a whole bunch of kooks, Dennis! And this is another lot of fantasy believers. I bet they think that Harry Potter and Peter Pan are real too, and can both fly.

I can see what these all have in common: They have all so convinced themselves that something they believe in is true which has been patently and repeatedly proven to be false that they have lost touch with reality and have become somewhat insane as a result. Sounds just like your type of people, Dennis.

Locked
