QUESTION: Would there be fish?

QUESTION: Would my brain be in a vat in order to think?

QUESTION: Would the people be dead or just not existent?

QUESTION: Would I have to disclose my feelings regarding this phenomenon should it take place?
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Bishops love kiwifruit. 
The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

The lack of people is not the same as the presence of fish

Would you think it were fishy if there were no people? ...

In the local Granbury, Texas area?
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

If there's no people on a certain swath of the water, don't count on fish being there either. Unless you saw the salmon a-jumping yourself, you're probably going to waste the time you should have used for traveling on setting the gear. While you're sitting on a skunk net, the fish is likely getting further away, and by the time you realize this, you're going to waste even more time having to pull it out of the water. Before you know it, you've burned through the day and hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

Sometimes though, you luck out and hit the mother lode, at which point everyone shows up.

Do you mean at the Western Rite Church you were talking about before, WPM?

No, in the immediate neighborhood vicinity.

Over the years I progressed to thinking that it is a mind trick.

So people are moving out of your local neighborhood?  Are you one of the last families there?  Are the other houses boarded up?

Yes, been here for a long time.

Do you think they are maybe staying indoors because of the heat?
