Kristin Kreuk at Necker Island

Reader: Kristin Kreuk describes a women’s meeting at her home – only problem – everyone – including Allison Mack – are NXIVM members

This is better than a Ben Szemkus story of a NXIVM gathering

By Anonymous

Kristin Kreuk describes a meeting at her home. She said, “There is something special when women come together. It is such a comfortable, warm and truly inspiring experience. About 15 ladies got together last night at my place, and it was soooo beautiful. We ate, chatted, avoided stepping on the dog, and really just hung out. A lot of our time was spent introducing each other and sharing why we value and love the ladies we brought with us… There were some tears. Okay, a lot of tears. haha… we are such girls. I love it…

“So we had Kendra and her belly, which is having plenty of movement these days. K is such a fabulous lady. She has a drive and determination that is very powerful. She talks a lot about being afraid all the time, which is something I do experience with her, but I also see her taking these great chances. I mean the woman has chosen to have a baby and build this company. At the same time. That is pretty balls.

And Tabby was there as well… I see Tabs as a girl who has gone through a lot of shite and has chosen to create a positive and productive life. She left her life (and kitty) in L.A. and came to Vancouver in like two days…okay slight exaggeration, but still. Tabby has a really lovely girlish energy, combo-ed with an ability to call code “beautiful”.

Allie-mack is one of my dearest friends. She has been an inspiration to me in her ability to be open and to translate her passions to others in a way that they get passionate too. Allison is so great at bringing people together to create. And her commitment to help others is something that we share. I have so enjoyed spending these years of my life in her presence.

And my dear friend Rose… Who to me is the embodiment of woman. She is a pillar of strength and a force of female-ness. Intelligent, holistic and ultimately compassionate… I see so much of the type of woman I want to be. Rose-y is now a beautiful mother of a seven-month-old girl, and this seems to have brought out a vulnerability in her that I hadn’t experienced before. She is truly amazing…”

*********

Sounds like Kristin Kook is describing a JNESS meeting that took place at her house. An all-female NXIVM group. All the women she wrote about in this post: Ally Wack, Tabby Chapman, Kendra Voth, and Rose Bhura were all in NXIVM. Mack, Bhura and Voth were recruited by Kook and Chapman was a Smallville fan recruited by Mack. And apparently, now, at least one GBD girl, “Jane” recruited into NXIVM by Kristin Kook started in GBD and is now a branded sex slave. If that’s true, that’s really bad.

And there was Kreuk and Voth denying (lying) GBD was not related to NXIVM without confirming or denying they were NXIVM cultists. Bad, very bad. This was just two years into Kreuk’s NXIVM involvement. She had already leveraged her fame to recruit for NXIVM through Acapella Innovations, College Project, Juicy Peach, and GBD. She was four years away from being named in Joe O’Hara’s lawsuit as a likely future defendant. In two years time, she would be on Necker Island for a secret NXIVM cult summit where money laundering was said to of been planned.

  • There are many here with strong and passionate opinions about things they know very little about. Much like many of the issues in the world today. Knowledge based on headlines, a statement made by some celebrity they “like” or attempting to gain acceptance or popularity from who they see as the majority.

    Do the research, get the facts not a narrative from a biased “journalist”, look at an issue from both sides and come to your own conclusion.

  • Yep flowers and Sultan perv.…totally lost since NXIVM is falling apart. Relax you two, another bizarre cult will come along to ensnare your weak and pathetic minds

  • ATTENTION ALL EARTHLINGS: The entity known as “Scott Johnson”, aka “Scooter”, aka “Scotty Potty” is off his meds again and appears to be tending toward violence. Please go inside, lock the doors, barricade the windows, and call 911.

  • The Princess left the cult for one very, very strange –and shocking — reason. One that many here will not believe. But here it is:

    She sucks in the sack. The Vanguard gave her plenty of chances and coached her. It didn’t work. She was dead weight. A near corpse.

    The problem, of course, is that Keithy had others that are better versed in the act. She didn’t like the rejection, She especially didn’t like it when it leaked out to the others.

    Take it or leave it. Hard to believe, but there you go, sailors

    • KK was supposedly having threesomes with AM and Keithy. This didn’t help any and spice things up? Perhaps KK left because she and Mark broke up and she didn’t have to anymore to keep him happy?

      • While it’s more interesting to use the double K’s name, it was actually Clyne who was trying to get AM into the 3 way and that’s why AM broke up with the guy she was seeing at the time.

        • Were you in NXIVM? That guy is Chad right? That was years ago. If Clyne and Mack were fucking Raniere all the way back then, then there is no way on Earth Kreuk did not know. If they were sexual with Raniere back then, it is very possible she was too.

    • “KK sucks in the sack. Vanguard coached her. It didn’t work”

      I guess as a sex coach, Vanguard is still White Sash, No Stripes.
      Remember the adage: “It’s a poor carpenter that blames his tool.”

  • I’m off-topic here but as it is NXIVM related I would think it’s okay. Just found this by accident when looking for something else entirely but I found the promo for a Teen Talk show pilot with the host….India Oxenberg! This was in 2008 so that would put India at 17 years old.

    • While I found CO’s book very interesting, I didn’t like her timing the announcement that India had left the cult with the release of her book. According to Frank, India had left the cult weeks before the book was released but I guess CO and her people wanted to use that info to generate more publicity for the book.

      Anyone know if India is still being investigated? As CC-2, she was accused of being involved with sex trafficking just like AM and with her NXIVM business, was probably breaking all sorts of employment and tax laws. Frank said she was involved with the girls from Mexico and was deeply involved with Rainbow Gardens so was probably grooming or molesting teen girls and young children for KR. Even if her mother did expose the cult, if India was really doing all of those things, shouldn’t she also be charged. And isn’t it about time she spoke up and denounced the cult publicly. Maybe she can get through to some of the remaining slaves and convince them to leave since she was one of them and directly under AM. And how is Nicki Clyne out there in Albany for the past 10 years avoiding arrest and scrutiny. Is she still trying to recruit people? Also who are the A-list actors that had their kids enrolled in that Rainbow crap? Frank wrote once about Penelope Cruz, but CO’s book seems to imply that there were others.

  • “June 18, 2009Awww! Thanks everyone for the encouragement! 😀 That video was so much fun to make! You guys should TOTALLY do the Sexy 7 as well!

    Oh, and PS, My wish came true!!!!!!!! Someone out of the insane amazing kindness of their heart GAVE me a camera!!!”

    – GBD

    And here we have a GBD organizer encouraging 12 – 17 yr. olds to make a “Sexy 7 video” —just thrilled to pieces someone was insanely kind enough to provide her with a free camera!

    …Did anyone else out there in GBD get a free camera to make their own sexy 7 videos?

  • I have a question for Sultan.

    Sultan, it’s interesting that as soon as Kristin Kreuk left NXIVM, she stopped having all of these “charity” moments where she helps teen girls — by hosting them at her own home — merely out of the goodness of her heart.

    You know, these moments when a famous TV star donates her free time — as well as her own home — to hosting meetings attended by lots of average girls to supposedly help them. LOL.

    You know, these moments when she created and recruited for organizations like GBD, for no reason except the goodness of her own heart. LOL.

    You know, these moments when she talks about how wonderful it is to be a “woman” — and how she needs to share that ‘wonderfulness’ with other young women so they can all become better women together, LOL.

    It’s interesting that she doesn’t do ANYTHING like that anymore, after leaving NXIVM — yet she maintains that those things had nothing to do with NXIVM whatsoever and she was merely doing those activities to help young girls out of the goodness of her heart (and to help herself become a better woman and person too). LOL.

    As soon as she left NXIVM, suddenly those important things don’t matter to her anymore? LOL.

    As soon as she left NXIVM, suddenly the idea of becoming a better woman & person — while helping other women to do the same thing — no longer matters much to KK. LOL.

    Yeah, it really sounds like those things had absolutely nothing to do with NXIVM. 🙂

    Explain this Sultan. …And don’t you dare say “non sequitur” in your response or I’ll jump from a very high building to get away from your endless non sequitur bullshit.

    • Not Sultan, but am wondering what makes you so certain that she hasn’t done other charitable things involving teen girls and/or teens in general since quitting NXIVM, unless you are doing some serious stalking and have been shadowing her every move for the past 5 -6 years.

      And in this day and age, what person, especially one who seems to attract some serious nutjobs, would host a gathering of people they don’t know very well at their own home. Besides yourself, just look at the crazy, creepy people posting on this site alone.

    • Kristin has worked with the I Am That Girl which is similar to what GBD was meant to be or Shetority the pro womens thing the CW girls are doing. Sophia Bush is also involved
      Shes actually involved in a lot of charitable pro womens events and was working on raising funding on a documentary about a woman in India called I am Phoolan who sparked a women’s revolution.

      If you look around and research its not hard to see Krisitn has been continued with legit charitable women’s rights projets

      • We’re not talking about KK merely tweeting about women’s issues. Every celebrity does that. LOL.

        Also… We’re not talking about KK being “vaguely involved” in general women’s rights issues while maybe attending a once-per-year photo op meeting — since most celebrities do that, you fucken dunce.

        No, that’s not the discussion. The real question is below.

        Is KK still inviting ‘strangers’ and ‘teens’ into her own home to “hang out” and discuss what it means to be a “woman”? I don’t think so, you dumbshit.

        Is KK still actively spending many hours of her life recruiting young girls into her own side organizations which just happened to be founded & staffed by other senior Nexians? I don’t think so.

        Guess what?

        KK has abandoned ALL of that strange teen recruitment shit once she left NXIVM. She also abandoned those specific side organizations too, which seems odd if they had nothing to do with NXIVM, don’t ya think?

        Why?

        If they had nothing to do with NXIVM then why abandon THOSE FUCKING PROJECTS if they meant so much to her “womanhood” and “evolving as a woman”?

        Answer that you FUCKEN dunce.

        Do it NOW! 🙂

        • you might encourage a better debate if you skipped the insults….I bet you wouldn’t talk that way to a real/live person who could punch you out.

        • It’s easier for Kreuk to virtue signal. They do it to feel righteous and to show off to others so that people like them for being “nice” when in fact, it’s all just a bullshit act. Celebrities are all full of shit when they talk about things that they don’t actually care about, including this d-list “smell the fart” actress. Season 2 of her awful tax payer funded drivel Burden Of Truth will lecture said tax payers on Native Americans. Literally, why?

          • Exactly. Ole Harvey Weinstein and Billy Bullshit Clinton exposed these feminist actress bitches for the hypocrites they truly are

      • Hi Sultan. No need to use another alias. We know it’s you. Also, that Phoolan bullshit Kreuk has attached herself to was in 2017 while refusing to talk about NXIVM at all. She was virtue signalling on twitter about it and someone responded with a question about NXIVM. Kreuk ignored it, of course as she does not want anyone discussing her deep NXIVM involvement. Sarah Edmondson responded with a link to a Vice article she wrote pretending she is a victim and Kreuk “liked” it. She is happy to talk about issues that have nothing to do with her but refuses to discuss something she was absolutely involved in. She posted something about Phoolon being pimped out for a cow. No mention of women branded like cattle though, including at least two women she recruited into NXIVM, Allison Mack who brands women like cattle and “Jane”. Dictionary definition virtue signalling. When you inevitably respond with your pain in the ass psycho babble, use your main alias and don’t pretend to be someone else.

    • It looks like people already answered. As has already been discussed, Kristin’s career became more time consuming when she won the lead role on Beauty and the Beast. That made her put off GBD. Her main goal was obviously acting and getting into producing. I believe in an interview she was asked what happened to GBD and she mentioned that there were organizations who were now doing similar work that were more established such as “I Am That Girl” and she threw her support behind them. She was photographed at a few of their events with the founders.

      • Is KK still inviting ‘strangers’ and ‘teens’ into her own home to “hang out” and discuss what it means to be a “woman”? I don’t think so.

        Is KK still actively spending many hours of her life recruiting young girls into her own side organizations which just happened to be founded & staffed by other senior Nexians, but which she CLAIMS had NOTHING to do with NXIVM?

        I don’t think so.

        Guess what?

        KK has abandoned ALL of that strange teen recruitment shit once she left NXIVM. She also abandoned those specific side organizations too, which seems odd if they had nothing to do with NXIVM, don’t ya think?

        Why?

        If they had nothing to do with NXIVM then why abandon THOSE FUCKING PROJECTS if they meant so much to her “womanhood” and “evolving as a woman”?

        If she merely wants to distance herself from NXIVM personnel (for PR reasons) then why not open a new project by herself — similar to the old GBD project — while continuing to do that SAME work by inviting teens and strangers into her home regularly to “hang out” and help everybody improve their “womanhood”?

        Answer that question with a CREDIBLE answer that’s at least remotely believable.

        Do it NOW! 🙂

        • — Is KK still actively spending many hours of her life recruiting young girls into her own side organizations which just happened to be founded & staffed by other senior Nexians, but which she CLAIMS had NOTHING to do with NXIVM?

          LOL. What staff?

          — KK has abandoned ALL of that strange teen recruitment shit once she left NXIVM.

          You can’t abandon what you weren’t doing in the first place. GBD was never used to recruit into NXIVM since it was a never a NXIVM project as the founders already confirmed in a written statement that this was the case. You’re welcome to believe them or not. But the burden of proof is up to you to prove that they are lying and that there is some hidden purpose to GBD that involves recruiting teenage girls into VanFraud’s bed. Sorry, but blog post insinuation and guilt by association isn’t going to cut it. I’m aware of multiple participants in GBD who have confirmed that neither Kristin nor Kendra ever attempted to recruit them into NXIVM.

          — She also abandoned those specific side organizations too, which seems odd if they had nothing to do with NXIVM, don’t ya think?

          No, those projects had to do with NXIVM but they just failed on their own. She never denied they were part of NXIVM.

          — If she merely wants to distance herself from NXIVM personnel (for PR reasons) then why not open a new project by herself — similar to the old GBD project —

          GBD isn’t shut down. The site just doesn’t have any content right now. Kendra still advertises it on her Linked In virtual resume as still existing, i.e., “Present”.

          • Pretty slick, Sultan. Did you study or practice law, ever?

            I was wondering ‘cuz Chaz Kent aka Two-Face from Batman was a Gotham DA lawyer before going schizo. Vancouver being Gotham and all. But maybe you’re not that guy?

            And if you are just KK’s lawyer or publicist, you skipped the part where it’s become obvious KK either blindly served her NXIVM masters or is herself a bigger crook pervert sex-slave recruiter than they are.

            But sometimes these crime rings do intersect or kinda overlap. I imagine they also compete.

          • I don’t know WTF you’re talking about. I live on the East Coast of the US.

            You people are fucking crazy.

          • Yep…they are nuts, Sultan. And there’s no point in trying to make sense of this, they are totally illogical and can’t seem to understand what logic is.

            Notice how they will attack me and claim I’m entertaining conspiracy theories, when in fact I’ve never mentioned any conspiracies, except to point out the illogic of the ones THEY entertain.

            Then, when I ask them what conspiracy theories they THINK I believe (and I really am curious to know what they think) they won’t bother to reply. They CAN’T reply to that, because I’ve never said I thought there was a conspiracy.

          • “I don’t know WTF you’re talking about. I live on the East Coast of the US. You people are fucking crazy.”

            Might be the funniest thing I’ve read on this site. And then to have Flowers come to SOS’s defense with a leftfield rant about conspiracies… I need to pay more attention to this comedy gold.

  • “We aren’t looking for the cute and sweet girl, its more like: adventurous, street-smart, an aggressive bad a-erh-buttedness chick of the modern age.” — GBD

    “BADASS” was how NEXIAN’s proudly describe themselves but for the GBD youngsters “BAD-ERH-BUTTEDNESS” is more acceptable.

    …I was voraciously reading through some of these GBD posts and comments apart from the “Sexy 7” and “Get-rich-like-the Quadroon-sex-slaves”
    stories and this popped out at me from the COMMENTS section on a very disturbing, gender bender fashion post by GBD.

    The comment was meant to look like a teenage reader’s post response but was obviously written by a GBD leader seeking “BADASS” girls who don’t swear but get (tee hee!) what “bad, er, buttedness” really means!

    🤢

    • I thought most comments weren’t made by teens. It was creepy and so obviously not a set up for healthy teen adventures, I’m feeling really sick about how long this went on and the involvement by so many good and bad? How do you decide now who qualifies for redemption. We don’t of course. But to ex-nxivms what are you going to do to make amends? Current Nxivm what kind of people do you think you really are? With all you know who are you?

      • Did you see that comment by “Chas Kent”? Not sure if that is a real name so I wonder who it might be….

        “As a great supporter of GBD, a hugh fan of Kristin Kreuk, and a cheerleader/motivator for Tabby I suppose my invitation to the gathering was lost in the mail. I realize I miss the desired demographics just a tad. Twenty-five years over on age, male instead of female, retired instead of just starting out. Seriously I like to pop in now and than and catchup on what is going on with this life changing, world reaching company. The goals or expectations of this company are a reflection of the company creators who care and give of themselves day in and day out with the hope of improving the lives of girls throughout the world. I truly think they are great, even if they lost my invitation.”

        All right, i need to stop going down this GBD comment rabbit-hole and get some work done.

        • That you, Sultan? AKA “Chas Kent?” Someone referred to you as “Chas” on here previously.

          And “Kent,” is that like Clark Kent aka Superman?

          Didn’t know “Kent” was a Muslim name.

    • I still want to know what those questionnaires were for, that Kreuk had underage teen GBD girls answer on Facebook. And why Kendra Voth contacted them privately if the girls said something they liked. What were they trying to identify? Those susceptible to a “feminist approach” to BDSM that Jane the DOS slave claimed. If so, gross.

  • She had the chance to be continually enjoyed lavishly. Now she is closing in on being too late. Not too old. She can still change her mind. She left that because Vanguard wanted a little more to dissolve her integrations. and she was timid. Not stupid. Nothing she can do now except repent and return to the Vanguard is open to her. If he will take Barbara Bouchey back who loves him and admitted it on Megyn Kelly (the great confession) then KK can do the same. She must confess her love for him. But is she too selfish because of her career? Yes. Yes. Yes. She is the text book case of a woman who adores her man but is afraid to announce it to the world because of what others might think. So she is silent when she should speak out. Barbabra told the world she loves love ❤️ loves her Vanguard and always will. Kristin you must do the same and when he gets out on April 20 he will take you back to be again enjoyed as we will all be enjoyed and we wait for that day. You do too if you will only admit it. Face it girl.

    • Now you are in the position to take her shifts and be enjoyed lavishly more often. Be more selfish and enjoy yourself.

    • Pea, you say that Kristin had the chance to be “continually enjoyed lavishly”? Um, by whom exactly? Your beloved Vanguard can’t get it up and how often does he get around to seeing the same woman he saw a month ago unless it’s during a midnight 30 mile walk around Clifton Park with drooling sex slaves at his side?

  • *said to HAVE been planned. Not of. When you are, ostensibly, getting paid to “report”, you should know grammar. Also, Kristin Kreuk hasn’t been involved in NXVIM for years, I thought? The cult is atrocious enough on its own–no need to try to suck others with previous affiliation into its muck.

  • This You Tube Video gives me the creeps.
    Kendra and Kristen asking girls to send in pictures, etc. Of which, they get to select girls to come meet them at a retreat in Petaluma where they will teach certain “tools” to help them achieve their goals.

  • Here we go again! Turned on my phone and here you are! Everyone who suckered women to join Nexium is guilty. No matter what they say on why they left! They left because they knew the truth yet they still recruited women into this weird sex pyramid scheme. Lock the lot of them up! Seriously how many of you idiots gullable ones believe in these lies you keep reading? “It wasn’t like that when I was there, I only left because…Blah blah blah!” lies after lies!

    Wake up guys! Everyone who went through the entrance more than twice is guilty of something! Ask the Freemasons lol

    • From day one you’d have to be aware of this being wrong on so many levels, the more I learn of Nxivm past the less empathy I’m feeling for ex members. What was missing in your lives that you would fill it with this evil?

  • This is better than a Ben Szemkus story of a NXIVM gathering

    This is better than a Ben Szemkus story if it is true.It seems Kroisten left out the most important fact in describing this “Ladies’ get together.”
    All the ladies are members of the NXIVM cult.

    Of course NXIVM was not yet a sex trafficking conspiracy yet but it had all the seeds of a sex trafficking cult.
    A Guru with slavish female followers.
    And a thriving business in money laundering.

    It took the madness of Raniere combined with the money and organizational abilities of the Bronfman sisters and the sado-masochism of Allison Mack to transform NXIVM into the insane asylum it became.

  • Is Tabby Chapman still involved with the cult? She was an Allison Mack superfan for years, maybe she’ll be asked to testify at the trial.

    • If this is her in Vicente’s blog? I don’t think so: http://www.markvicente.com/whistleblower/2017/10/12/how-the-bleep-did-that-happen-episode-1

      “Tabby 10 months ago · 0 Likes

      Mark,

      When I first made the decision to leave NXIVM, I was lucky… I was a nobody. I didn’t have any true ties… other than the “friendships” I made that I had to keep paying money back to the mothership in order to maintain. No one should have to pay for friends.

      There’s a few things that haunt me to this day from my participation in this “self help” group. And they are so deeply ingrained that it comes up in my therapy sessions constantly.

      Once I left, I was alone. Thankfully my long term friends I had made for years before, Who had begged me not to get involved, were waiting with arms open. Part of me wonders why no one from Albany ever called just to see how I was doing. Part of me knows.

      I had the same process but thankfully not the same financial investment and endorsement investment. I admire you for writing these blogs and being brave for those of us who didn’t matter.”

  • For the last time I want to express my opinion about KK. Kristin Laura Kreuk wont be prosecuted because of two related problems First, western court in general is bias, it has sympathy on women the like of KK who is beautiful and rich, she is also a actor who can act in court for her benefit. Secondly, regarding dragging women to DOS, yes she does this, i also believe she participated in satanic rituals which exist hand in hand with MKULTRA. But things get complicated because this cunt (KK) bedded rich and powerful man who dont want their name drag to this NXVIM. These men will ask for favors etc. to help KK to benefit their own selfish desires. These men dont want the operation stop amd KK can deliver their wants in bed. It is also worth noting that KK fancy human behavior in general and psychology is the way to manipulate people which is hard to prove in court. The operation also operates in a complex manner that it exist for 20 yrs. Under the nose of the authorities. This cult has many disguises ( its a corporation and a cult at the same time ) that it became a juggernaut. Only the fbi can drag her to court, then people will believe. This blog wont convince the masses that KK is a bad person and a pimp. Only the media can do that, unfortunately the media is not doing a investigation on KK.. There is a reason why, maybe she holds too many aces.

    • Boy be careful. If your tinfoil hat melts you will be exposed to all that dangerous mind-altering microwave radiation that is emitted by MKULTRA via HAARP.

      Now on a more serious note. You should read chapter 12 of Carl Sagan’s the demon-haunted world. Many readers here should try it as well. Here are some guidelines from the book. What is following is not mine.

      ———————————————————————————————————————–

      Wherever possible there must be independent confirmation of the “facts.” Encourage substantive debate on the evidence by knowledgeable proponents of all points of view.

      Arguments from authority carry little weight — “authorities” have made mistakes in the past. They will do so again in the future. Perhaps a better way to say it is that in science there are no authorities; at most, there are experts.

      Spin more than one hypothesis. If there’s something to be explained, think of all the different ways in which it could be explained. Then think of tests by which you might systematically disprove each of the alternatives. What survives, the hypothesis that resists disproof in this Darwinian selection among “multiple working hypotheses,” has a much better chance of being the right answer than if you had simply run with the first idea that caught your fancy.

      Try not to get overly attached to a hypothesis just because it’s yours. It’s only a way station in the pursuit of knowledge. Ask yourself why you like the idea. Compare it fairly with the alternatives. See if you can find reasons for rejecting it. If you don’t, others will.

      Quantify. If whatever it is you’re explaining has some measure, some numerical quantity attached to it, you’ll be much better able to discriminate among competing hypotheses. What is vague and qualitative is open to many explanations. Of course there are truths to be sought in the many qualitative issues we are obliged to confront, but finding them is more challenging.
      If there’s a chain of argument, every link in the chain must work (including the premise) — not just most of them.

      Occam’s Razor. This convenient rule-of-thumb urges us when faced with two hypotheses that explain the data equally well to choose the simpler.

      Always ask whether the hypothesis can be, at least in principle, falsified. Propositions that are untestable, unfalsifiable are not worth much. Consider the grand idea that our Universe and everything in it is just an elementary particle — an electron, say — in a much bigger Cosmos. But if we can never acquire information from outside our Universe, is not the idea incapable of disproof? You must be able to check assertions out. Inveterate skeptics must be given the chance to follow your reasoning, to duplicate your experiments and see if they get the same result.

      Try not to get overly attached to a hypothesis just because it’s yours. It’s only a way station in the pursuit of knowledge. Ask yourself why you like the idea. Compare it fairly with the alternatives. See if you can find reasons for rejecting it. If you don’t, others will.

      Quantify. If whatever it is you’re explaining has some measure, some numerical quantity attached to it, you’ll be much better able to discriminate among competing hypotheses. What is vague and qualitative is open to many explanations. Of course there are truths to be sought in the many qualitative issues we are obliged to confront, but finding them is more challenging.
      If there’s a chain of argument, every link in the chain must work (including the premise) — not just most of them.

      Occam’s Razor. This convenient rule-of-thumb urges us when faced with two hypotheses that explain the data equally well to choose the simpler.

      Always ask whether the hypothesis can be, at least in principle, falsified. Propositions that are untestable, unfalsifiable are not worth much. Consider the grand idea that our Universe and everything in it is just an elementary particle — an electron, say — in a much bigger Cosmos. But if we can never acquire information from outside our Universe, is not the idea incapable of disproof? You must be able to check assertions out. Inveterate skeptics must be given the chance to follow your reasoning, to duplicate your experiments and see if they get the same result.

      PS: Your theory is so nuts, not even the alt-right, including Scott Johnson can take it seriously.
