Remember, we don't have to prove their incorrect, the claimants have to prove they are, indeed, correct. If they present anything worth looking at it would a total surprise. The good brothers just wanted to make a buck.

If I could debunk Reddit posts I'd make better use of my talents in Las Vegas casinos.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Proof in the form of what?

From your link:
Back in October of 2016 I was working on a short film for the entire month. During that time I had a 30-45 minute commute to the sets and the place I was staying at. On the last week of filming I was beat. So I took sleep deprivation into consideration as an explanation for what would happen to me on one of the commutes.
Source:

Yup and that is what did happen. I friend of mine once worked for 24 hours even a night shift. He said he could see fairies and binary codes around himself. Its just sleep deprivation and your imagination.

As for the rest of the stories I will have a look at them later on however here is a skeptical look by Dr. Steven Novella: https://theness.com/neurologicablog/ind ... he-matrix/

He discusses the same topic but not individual stories.

Also wanted to add, Matrix or even a simulated reality is not possible. There are countless problems with it, that I found and read about however one of the most strongest is that there is no possible way to create such a powerful computer that would be able to store so much data. It would have to be magic because humans and all other living beings make decisions, evolve, talk, sing etc. all these activities would take so much energy and not talking about the problems of hard disk space. It would be more gigabytes then there is possible to make or create.

Not my job to think up proofs for their stories any more than it is for me to think up proofs for people's gods.

These fall under that neglected area of science known as "Coolstorybroology."

Is that pronounced bro'ology or broo'logy?

LOL If we were to post all pseudoscientific reddit posts we would need a new forum, just search "parallel universe reddit" on google, you'll be surprise the amount of nonsense, it's from people claiming to be shifting parallel quantum realities using quantum mechanics theories, others claiming they think they died in another "quantum" 'reality' and some other nuts claiming they are from a different dimension of the universe because they don't remember old world maps, that's what you get from reddit

I approach these things a bit differently, and I am frequently mistaken for a "believer" in the process.
I try to weigh the evidence scientifically. That means I examine the claims, and try to find the fatal flaws contained within.

I don't like taking shortcuts like ridicule, dismissal and derision. That's childish behavior in my opinion. Why not use the tools we're given? After all, a fallacy can never be proved, and a truth can never be disproved. What do we have to lose by maintaining our intellectual integrity?

OK, so I hear it all the time, "why waste time examining what we already know to be wrong?" Read above again, that's why.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

I lost the count on how many posts are created in this sub about dying and not dying. Dangerous idea about us being immortal and quantum immortality supporting the idea that people almost die but keep living because of alternate universes and their other 'selves' switching 'souls' or switching their damaged organs at the time of the accident, with new organs from their other selves in alternate universes. This is absolute ridiculous. Everyday is a new FAKE story about how they almost died and kept living because of 'alternate universes' and how quantum mechanics supports it, It's a shame, how many {!#%@} keep promoting it. This sub should be banned from the internet. And I mean that very seriously. People can definitely try to suicide believing in these {!#%@}

I think the most dangerous ones are about the tooth fairy being real. I've seen my nephew's kids. You wouldn't want to leave the tooth fairy thing to chance, they'd eat a hole right through you looking for their money.
