#049 – Rob Schneider Views on Vaccines

November 2, 2014 // 1 Comment

Rob Schneider might not be a stapler but he is a douchebag. Myles and James are joined by Ross Exton for a chat about a video that is doing the rounds again thanks to the not so hidden CDC data linking African American children getting vaccines and [...]

My Final Review of Liam Scheffs book ‘Official Stories’

October 26, 2014 // 7 Comments

Believe it or not I actually enjoyed reading the last few chapters of Liam Scheff’s book Official Stories. I would even go as far as to say that I recommend the book to others because it is an anomaly in the modern age. Quite frankly, it is fascinating. Never before have I seen someone who is so willfully uninformed put pen to paper and publish their failings for the world to see. Never before have I seen someone be so blissfully ignorant of his or her own ineptitude. And never before have I [...]

Review of the Movie ‘GMO OMG’

October 23, 2014 // 10 Comments

Edited by Peter It has taken me over a year, but I have finally tracked down a copy of Jeremy Seifert’s 2013 anti-GMO documentary ‘GMO OMG’ and I have to say it was very disappointing. The movie was very slow and, at times, I did not know if I was watching a documentary about GMOs or some guy’s vacation footage. It’s also extremely padded with the vast majority of the film consisting of Jeremy interviewing farmers and people on the streets about their views on GMOs – most of [...]

Larry Cook and Chiropractic Adjustment

October 20, 2014 // 1 Comment

Myles once again points his skepticle eye at one of Larry Cook’s videos. This time he looks into research that “Doctor” Donald Trepany is quoting about Chiropratic Adjustments preventing SIDS. For Best Relief, Relax During A Chiropractic Adjustment Vaccines and Toxins Cause Autism, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, SIDS & Crib Death Blocked Atlantal Nerve Syndrome In Infants and Small Children Larry Cook and Chiropractic [...]

A Review of Dr. Judy Wood’s Book “Where Did The Towers Go?” – The Jumpers

October 12, 2014 // 30 Comments

PART 2 Edited by Peter In the first two chapters of Dr. Judy Wood’s book, she talks about the collapse rate of the twin towers and how she believed it too be inconsistent with the official story. Although she is blatantly incorrect, she never strayed to far away from the 9/11 conspiracy movement. However, in her third chapter “The Jumpers” we get a glimpse at her quite frankly ludicrous hypothesis, and why the majority of the truther movement wants nothing to do with her. The chapter [...]

#046 – Nullius in Verba – Darwin’s Greatest Secret – The Leqgue of Nerds

October 12, 2014 // 4 Comments

Dr Mike Sutton sits down with Myles to discuss his book Nullius in Verba – Darwin’s Greatest Secret. Dr Sutton believes that in 1831 Patrick Matthew published a full account of natural selection in his book ‘On Naval Timber and Arboriculture’. Interestingly both Darwin and Wallace claim to have not being influenced by the book and did not know of any other naturalist who had read it. Dr Sutton has uncovered that a number of naturalist had read and cited the [...]

What Are These People Even Marching Against?

October 6, 2014 // 5 Comments

Edited by Peter In May of this year, I attended a March Against Monsanto protest in Nottingham and the one thing that really stuck out to me was the lack of knowledge these protesters had. I can’t stress enough at how embarrassingly little these people knew about the things they were protesting against and how the majority of them were unable to answer the most basic of questions. Questions like ‘why are you specifically against GMOs?’ Many danced around the question or changed the [...]

Sue Mallender Does Not Live in the Real World

October 5, 2014 // 14 Comments

Back in May of this year on a particularly wet day League of Nerds co-host, James, and I attended a March against Monsanto protest in Nottingham. The protest was attended by a relatively large group of people who I presumed were there to protest against the agriculture company Monsanto. Instead it became apparent very early on that they were there to protest against genetically modified organisms as a whole. The main event began with a speech from one of the organizers who, for some reason, [...]

A Review of Dr. Judy Wood’s Book “Where Did The Towers Go?” – The Twin Towers Collapse

October 4, 2014 // 86 Comments

Edited by Peter Part 1 Just over two years ago, I found myself stranded an extra day in New York because my flight home had been cancelled. This was after I had spent three exhausting months in America working and travelling, so I was about ready to go home. I did not know what to do with myself on this extra day, and was thinking about spending it sat in Central Park waiting for my flight. This was until a friend of mine suggested that I take my camera down to ground zero and interview 9/11 [...]

Larry Cook and Mercury in Vaccinations

October 2, 2014 // 3 Comments

The false-hope peddler Larry Cook has come to my attention once again. This time he is bashing vaccinations with a little help from Dr. Kenneth P. Stoller MD. In this video Myles discusses whether or not mercury is really that toxic. More nonsense from Larry Cook Holly Riley – Cure For Autism Caused By Vaccinations Autism, Vaccines, Mercury and the Culpability of the American Academy of [...]
