After Gary McKinnon, I think every single wild claim should be taken with a grain of salt the size of the rock of Gibraltar.
Most articles do. They first 15 mins - 1/2 hour must garner your attention, or 99% of viewers will switch off. These loose snippets have a tendency to just keep growing if not checked. Look at the sad sorry of Roswell which the tatters lie in today. I have a few UFO conspiracy videos at home, one I quite like is 50 Years of Denial. But I put little stock in the claims. I looked some up and found they were even using stock photoshop images in the presentation. bmk helped me track one photo down of an aircraft chasing a UFO aired in the presentation. It can be a bit disillusioning, bit it remains entertaining.
Check out the link I left above in my post #37, I think you might enjoy it more I have to admit, I found it entertaining and watched the whole thing. But I still think "Mum" is more whacky than a stoned fruitcake.
Gary is an interesting case. On one hand, It's a pretty plausible story to create to try and play down his actions.
On the other hand, what if he was just curious as a cat? What he did was wrong but if the reasoning behind it is true... I don't believe he deserves to end up in the same place as people who murder and kill.
Whats your opinion on Roswell you're a bit ambiguous there
I did, It's a corker, I don't think It was aired over here! The debate was harsh...Mildly amusing as well though. Cheers for it
I understand that alot of religious people work that way and believe me I don't appreciate their 'help' at all. I'm lucky I live in a semi-rural area so we never get the Sunday Jehovahs He seemed aware that people don't want to talk about aliens, they just want their problems fixed and that was one thing that impressed me. Not too many ET visitees will say that.
It's an interesting case when people are assumed to be losing their faculties because they make claims that do not fit in the world we believe exists. There are things we cannot prove exist, spiritual energy, karma, negative/positive dimensions, aliens etc, so It's hard to believe in them. I don't feel calling people who do believe in them and aren't afraid to say so crazy is the way to go is all. Of course, they may not exist at all! That's what makes death so exciting, we get to find out...In my opinion anyway
Do you reckon we're just meatsacks > wormfood?
Of course, there are the genuine crazies which makes things alot more complicated. I think It's one of those things where until you or me have a personal experience with an Alien coming down and saying 'Hey psyche cut the councillor some slack! It's quite hard to believe. After all, what kind of empirical evidence can he provide. =/
I think the subject itself is irrational, but he dealt with it in a fairly rational way... If you get what I mean...The end of the video he delved into some crazy stuff though.
