It has been called the discovery of the 7th sense. The research into this phenomenon has been described as being of "Nobel calibre". It has been featured in numerous publications around the world, and in the United States it became a household name in the late 90s. It is called Reverse Speech, the phenomenon of hidden backward messages in speech. It initially gained worldwide fame in the early 80s as those strange backward messages in rock and roll. Since that time, research has progressed significantly and it is now known to exist in all forms of human speech.
If human speech is recorded and played backwards, mixed amongst the gibberish at regular intervals can be heard very clear statements. These statements usually appear in short sentence form and are nearly always related to the forward speech. It appears constantly throughout language, so much so in fact, that it is believed to be a natural part of our speech processes.
Okay that's probably enough. I've never heard of it before today, and I try to keep up on pseudoscience, so I don't think it's fair to say it became a "household name" in the 1990s.
But, apparently I've either been asleep or I just thought this nonsense was so unworthy of my attention that I ignored it because it's apparently been used to assess the guilt of JonBenet Ramsey's parents in her death, and has shown that aliens are here among us now, hoping to collect our meat. Maybe these aliens killed poor JonBenet Ramsey?
"Those strange backward messages in rock and roll" were debunked long ago. It looks like reverse speech is sort of the "Intelligent Design" to backmasking's "creationism." A new way of expressing something old and totally bogus.
Nevertheless, some of the reverse speech exposes of Barack Obama's speeches are fairly entertaining:
Obama wants us to follow Satan, or Zeus, or something else. He's also a hero who doesn't want immigrants to learn to speak English and wishes death on anyone who doubts him.
That last one is the one that I guess kind of started the Obama reverse speech movement- it's an interview with the guy who accused Obama of buying drugs from him, and then having sex with him. We can tell the story is true because if you play parts of it backwards, it sounds like he's saying- well, a bunch of stuff that proves his sincerity.
Whenever I see anything like this, I'm always amazed by the amount of time and effort that went into producing it. Each of those videos took several hours, possibly even days, to put together. Couldn't these people have found more productive ways of using their time? I mean, I get it, they think this is real and that Barack Obama is a harbinger of doom, but come on. Fight the stimulus(es) and bailouts, for crying out loud.
Reverse speech is not real.
