Like former Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer, Simon Parkes is adament Aliens are real. The kicker this time, is that he claims he's fathered a child with one! :w00t:

I believe aliens are real but I don't believe he fathered a child with one.  Bet it has put a strain on his marriage with his human wife.

Of course we have aliens working with our government and they are wanting citizenship.

My first thought was Simon who?

Describing him as a politician is stretching the definition a bit. In fact it is stretching the definition by calling him a city councillor, lovely place though Whitby is, it's no city it's a small town.

No one outside of the 13,000 people that live in Whitby will have ever heard of this guy (and given the general apathy towards politics in the UK I would think a fair portion of that town's population won't have heard of him either).

I definitely just copy+pasted the headlines from the article..

No attack intended on you, it was Huffington Post Canada I was having issues with.

That this guy is a local politician is almost totally irrelevant. He has no special knowledge or insight as a result of his position. As a news story it is right up there with Sid Jones the road sweeper believes in aliens.

i've run out of likes again godsdammit!!
have to agree with waspie though, whitby IS a beautiful place, bit of a bugger to get drunk in though, too many hills, and up until 3mns ago, I didn't know it was a hotbed of lunacy!
fathered a child with one eh?
after the suicide of Screaming Lord Such, I thought that the Monster Raving Loony Party had disappeared from politics?
apparently not.

I found that hard to believe. I don't know much about Simon Parkes but I've read the Huffington Post article. The problem is that psychosis and schizofrenic episodes must be considered first. Too often a claim of Extra Terrestrial encounter can be attributed to mental health issues.

This hardly seems worthy of any sort of media coverage. *facepalms*

What? Ridiculing a brave politician with the guts to come forward?

And yet people still wonder why the field suffers in credibility.

I noticed this:

But Parkes, who sits on the Whitby town council, makes Hellyer seem positively believable.

Seems I am not the only one who thinks Helleyer is mad as a March Hare.

Having an highly unusual opinion doesn't make someone mad. Helleyer's beliefs is shared by many people around the world. Many people associate Aliens beliefs whith craziness and that's simply not true.

Would you call claiming to be the father of an Alien an "opinion" would you?

Hellyers beliefs are shared by anyone who buys a Brad Sparks or Phillip Coro's books. That is where he pulls the crap from, not the blackhole we suspected I admit, not from "experience". When he "speaks" at UFO conferences he just recites Brad Sparks. And yes, he is mad as a hatter. He states that Pilots and ET's get together and discuss flight manoeuvres, or more recently, Hellyer says 4 types of aliens have been coming here for thousands of years. Even the papers that report him think he is white jacket material.
He even stuffed up Hawking's quote when he speculated about alien intentions too. Fair go, if you think there is something to learn from this regurgitated trash topped with some imagination, please feel free to enlighten me.

Nah, he is responsible for the destruction of the RCN, Cdn. Army and RCAF. His "Unification" ideal was all he worried about. The CF-5 buy is another dubious decision he made.

He made this bed, now he has to lie in it.
