    tomscott.com - tomscott - In north-west Germany sits Bielefeld, a city complete with castle, cathedral and citizens. Just one catch: according to something that's half urban legend, half in-joke, it doesn't exist. Let's talk about belief and Bielefeld.

Hm, since you say "unconsciously", that makes me curious about an explanation for why instead of adopting more opinions of my environments, I've adopted more opinions that oppose it. Consciously, I'd say it's simply critical thinking and believing that truth is more desirable than anything else. But considering the findings of those social scientists, I suppose there has to be more behind it than just that.

This seems oddly a lot like the State of Acre in Brazil which has Aliens riding dinosaurs and doesn’t exist

You're one of THEM, aren't you Tom? You just want us to believe you went there, and you even posted a video explaining why we can't trust you Tom.

This is not Bielefeld! Aren't you surprised that there are almost no people on the streets beside the few payed actors in front of these plastic / paper buildings? Beware of deceivers like this!

Cool, I actually never heard about this Tom, but then again I used to live in Herford just down the road and go twice a week with my German mates to PC69 disco in Bielefeld! Also some Saturdays (if it was a lange Samstag) for shopping. But maybe I am just a disinfo agent... P.S. I was curious so I googled it on German wiki, as I don't like to be out of touch with stuff like this when I live in a country. Turns out I wasn't as I lived in Germany in 1991-3 and this story only started up in 1994.

I just searched it. Seems legit population 370 odd thousand selling tickets to a dj festival there this year. Maybe google is in on the conspiracy or has been duped. Maybe the whole thing is a marketing strategy to increase tourism with people actually going there to check for themselves.

I've been working on a proof that it doesn't exist, using reasoning like you would find in a geometric proof. Sure, I doubt I'd win anything for it, but it's proving a fun thought experiment.
