The reason I never follow quillius down this rabbit hole is because it leads nowhere. All it does is increase the number of posts in a thread. There is another member here that has this strange love for nit-picking,... very tiresome if you ask me.
Sorry, q,... I do however enjoy our "normal" debates.
I reckon the dedicated thread is a good read, Q has dug up some old links that get right to the actual words of the men in the time frame. I have an alternate theory that is very much out there on it's own, and I am not convinced I am heading down the wrong track as yet, but snippets like the small craft I feel give us a good impression of what people might have been thinking back then, and what was possible, compared to what today the average person knows is possible. I find it quite interesting that as we have learned more about space, Aliens seems to get further away from us. Not all that long ago, many people were positive the Mars and Venus had life, I saw an old clip a short time ago of a grown man pretending to channel Venusians. Today we know Venus cannot harbour life like that, if any at all, so we see he was full of it all along, yet other adults gave him the benefit of the doubt. A man with no motivation to fool people, who others thought was genuine. Amazing how much we have matured in the last 40 years or so.
Well, some of us! We still have the resident AA'er doing what that fellow did all that time ago on the TV. Spreading BS.
