yes but its not a spur of the moment idea, websites books and videos take time and effort.....what makes someone decide I will be a conman and I will sell the idea of ETs and Aliens...

I assume you dont think he believes what he says?

one is either delluded and losing their marbles or is sophisticated enough to run a scam for many years...dont see how it can be both...which is what is being suggested I think..???

As to some of the discussion about remembering names...some people are very good at recalling specific names, others aren't.

Not that it matters much,... but the reason I dont remember that first thread (McClelland) might have something to do with the fact I was only posting a smiley to our red angel and didnt bother with the rest.

Now that I have read up on the guy, I wish I didnt.

Sad story if you ask me.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

I don't see why these two options have to be mutually exclusive. Even folks who've "lost their marbles" still need to make a buck.

they are not mutually exclusive, you are right. However, they cannot both be the motivator and cannot be similataneous at the start. IMO

To make lots of nice money from conning gullible people. Surely that's motivation enough?

No, because he doesn't do it in order to con gullible people, but sticks to facts and things that happened.

to con would suggest 'we sell a lie' knowingly....

to call someone delluded and on a one way ticket to woo wooville etc etc suggests he believes what he is saying..

I am asking which is it?

hypothetical for you LV.

Assume I write a book about UFO debunking and include things such as Portage county being 'Venus' etc, would I be called a con man? am I not as gulity of conning the gullible in this scenario?

Ok, I see what you mean. My suspicion is that the "lost marbles" was the primary motivator. The notion to go public with the delusional thinking subsequently resulted in some monetary gain. Hence, the delusional behaviour was then reinforced. But, I'm not a psychologist, this is just my personal guess.

Hard to say,... Richard C Hoagland, now that is a guy that knows what he is doing. I have no doubt that he is full aware of the fact he is selling science fiction fantasy.
