Scalar Weapons? Fact or Fiction?

  1. I hear/read about "Scalar Weapons" from a certain
    website : and it's main man :
    retired Col. Tom Bearden. I have one of his books
    and he has lots to say and most seems too weird
    to believe. The following is part of a long paper on
    weapons of great power ? :

    Scalar Electromagnetic Weapons and their Terrorist Use:
    Immediate Strategic Aspects of the Asymmetric War on the U.S.

    Cold War Development of Scalar Interferometry
    Prior to 1990, our weather over North America was being steadily engineered by the KGB ¾ particularly beginning on July 4, 1976 ¾ using giant strategic scalar interferometers on site in Russia {,,,}. From the beginning of the development program started shortly after WW II, the KGB personally controlled the development of startling new Russian weapons under the Soviet energetics program {,,}. That program was for research and eventual development of highly advanced new superweapons more powerful than the atomic bomb.

    What do you think of this man's ideas? Is the scalar weapon a real
    deal or not? (Col. Bearden also believes that the first Space Shuttle
    was shot down by Russians using scalar weapon technology. I tried
    to get Bearden on to Art Bell's radio program but Bearden's webmaster
    said Tom does not talk to radio talkshows.) :confused:

    You've asked about Bearden before and the answer is the same: while Greer is a second order crackpot, Bearden may well be certifiably insane - he is, at the very least, a liar and a fraud. You really should just drop this line of questioning.

    Dayle, I typed "meteorologist Scott Stevens" into Google and came up with nothing except a few links to that same article. I typed my local meteorologists name in, even accidentally misspelled it, and Google corrected the spelling and linked his TV station's weather page. Doesn't bode well for Mr. Stevens' existence.

    And as much as I've (and others on Bad have tried, we have yet to hear any explanation of what a "scalar weapon" is even supposed to be. Great jokes though: its a weapon with a magnitude but no direction, a weapon that can't be aimed, etc.

    Well Dayle, I emailed Scott Stevens
    and asked about the claims at your linked site. Here is his response. I didn't think that it would take long to nip this in the bud.

    His reply
    oh. :uhh:

    Tom Bearden is a notorious crackpot. Has been for years. References available upon request. I kinda hate to go through this exercise again, but, if you are really interested in facts, I don't mind. He is a fraud, charlatan and temple priest of bad science. I hope I am not sugar coating this too much.

    I think the most important question is:
    Is the scalar positive or negative..:confused:
    What would be worse, I wonder..

  10. I just posted that because it is what I found that wasn't by the main crackpot, mentioned. I have heard plenty of other discussions about weather control, and after having read about the butterfly theory, I long ago decided that we mess the weather up with air traffic. Just disturbing fronts as they gather the moisture they need to precipitate is probably enough to change weather. The increasing hurricanes in Florida, are probably because of increasingly heavy air traffic patterns, out of Atlanta. See, I can do crackpot all on my own.

    I can tell you this about the Haarp, and Sonar and all. The Navy has been harrassing Whales and Dolphins with this stuff for years. I think that guys on Subs and Ships have done this deliberately for sport. I think with all that sophisticated equipment they have, they could detect the presence of Cetacians and leave them to their world.

    One of the most creepy things that is going to happen soon, is the way broadband will just come in over our power lines. It makes me think that this has already been going on for sometime.

    In short, we have forgotten what it is to live, and the parasitic weapons industry has found a link to the fight or flight receptors of every human with two nickels to rub together, the world over. We can't possibly live in peace, as long as they can make so much money on war. All their creative energies go into thinking of the next way, we will be one up on the other guys. What a waste. Eighty billion more for Iraq, no we can't save the Hubble, too much money.

  11. "Eighty billion more for Iraq, no we can't save the Hubble, too much money."

    I think you are right about this Dayle. Seems like we should have a try at
    saving the Hubble. We just need one more successuful mission. NASA
    fixed it twice already. Or was it Three times?
  12. Scalar weapons are weapons more powerful than atomic bombs, able to control the weather eh? Does it do hurricanes? Earthquakes? Tsunamis? ...err..from the "evidence" I looked at, it forms little fluffy clouds into special shapes. ???
  13. I was just reading

    E=tc^2 ? :rofl: This guy needs to take a serious class in dimensional analysis before he attempts to bother himself with scalar weapons. Does he think Einstein just woke up one day and said "E=mc^2!" No, it was years of developing the special relativity theory.

    Mommy, what is that stinky thing I keep seeing between hoof prints?
  15. I know that I have heard his material being discussed as the main topic on Coast to Coast before though I can't quite remember if he was the person being interviewed or not. I do remember that it sounded decidedly crackpot-esque.
  16. :eek: wow they might be using it here! I saw a cloud shaped like Homer Simpson! As I was staring at it, my dog started barking and growling then hid under the picnic table!
  17. Well, it seems everyone has placed Bearden in the Crackpot category so
    that question seems answered. Now what about the possible "Suitcase
    sized Atomic Bombs"? Do you guys think that there are any hidden in the
    USA?(and would they still work?)
  18. This should be a new thread.

    They would still work as long as the high explosives and control
    electronics had not deteriorated. Plutonium and U235 have very
    long half-lives.

    Any H-bombs out there- they use tritium need servicing since that
    has a half-life of about 6 years.
  19. Genius Meteorologist Scott Stevens is at it again.

    I have also heard of people that claim that Russians lack the Technology to create a Hurricane, but they can steer it somehow, and they "piloted" Katrina directly into New Orleans. :surprised

    From the site:
    Sound waves between 3 and 30 MHz? What kind of pressure waves can oscillate at those frequencies?
