    everyone is all excited about false memories in mice – this is not a new
    thing and can be done without any brain beams´╗┐

    @jman9001 I was just getting ready to defend this brilliant and very
    important line of research when I read your comment. I could not have said
    it better myself. The only thing I would add is that all participants were
    debriefed extensively after their involvement in these studies.

    @johntheother Mmmm… probably not the only person. They’re just simply
    demonstrating a point.

    @slickrickjohnson She is suggesting that adults who bring forth claims of
    child abuse got their memories from therapy which couldn’t be further from
    the truth. Besides there is no such a thing as False Memory Syndrome. The
    word itself was coined by Jenifer Freyd’s father. Her parents co-founded
    the False Memory Syndrome Foundation after she claimed her father sexually
    abused her. And BTW I never said Lofthus is an idiot. You’re eyes must be
    failing you old fart. I am stating facts.

    @likespinningplanets circumstantial ad hom – put your flash cards away

    @johntheother 1) It’s not a memory of something that is horrifying. If they
    did that, then I would agree with you. 2) If they had implanted a really
    happy memory, would you still be so upset? 3) If there is no harm to anyone
    involved in this experiment, unlike for example, animal testing, how is
    this immoral?

    The sheepiest are always the ones claiming not to be a sheep.

    @jfsfrnd I don’t know exactly when everything happened. It’s not like it
    was in a textbook or something. I just know that there was a repressed
    memories fad and it took a long time for it to die down a little. There are
    some references to it in psychological journals; I remember reading about
    it last year when I was looking for a research topic. But memories have
    been long-proven to be highly malleable and easily manipulated.

    There have been some very interesting research on false memory. There was
    one where researchers managed to get some participants to believe that they
    had met Bugs Bunny at Disneyland when they were kids. One experiment
    suggest that implanted memory can affected behavior. They had participants
    rate how much they liked certain foods. Then they implanted in them a
    memory of a bad experience with eggs. Weeks later, they had the
    participants rate the foods again and egg was rated much lower.

    @CollisionTheory08 SO, We’re basically saying the same thing…it’s not

  16. ajarnbrian4 says:

    You’re both wrong and offensive. The published and peer reviewed research
    done by Loftus and others shows that false memories have indeed been
    implanted. If you have evidence of research that contradicts the work of
    Loftus, please tell us. This of course does not negate real cases of child

    And people thought the movie Inception was fictional. . . .

    @tomcornhole Regardless of the merits of this particular organization,
    False memory is a scientifically valid phenomenon backed by various

    I know. Like I said, I wasn’t being serious about them being stupid. It
    seems to me that some peoples’ memories work in different ways. For
    example, I saw a documentary once about a woman who remembers pretty much
    everything that’s ever happened to her with extreme detail. She suffered
    serious depression because of it. The interviewer tested her by asking her
    questions about shows that she watched and stuff. She could remember the
    color of the characters’ shirts in specific episodes and stuff.

    The whole sexual thing is off by a mile!

    Hmm… Do you think you would have been a nazi if you lived in germany
    during world war 2? Maybe you’ve already been brainwashed into supporting
    horrible practices and you just don’t realize how bad they are. If your
    answer is a resounding “NO” to what I said above, then you might also fall
    victim to one of these studies. I think if someone did this to you, changed
    your memories, then told you it was all fake, that you would come away a
    better person who is less likely to be brainwashed.

    @greatbored my friend, your comments on eating sheep are misleading, and
    may be mistaken for something other than desirable.

    I need you ro remember how you felt when you first watched You Tube. Tell
    me about how you felt when you realized you had become smarter after
    watching. Tell me about how dumb you used to be. How do you deal with your
    feelings when you want to destroy those who do not wish to become like you.
    You Tube, at some point in your past made you smarter. Tell me about You
    Tube making you smarter. It DID happen. Or DID it? OMG!! You’re one of the
    Many Who Remain Dumb!! I’m out of here.
