I never pretended that I understand it. I stressed out couple time that Im not educated in physics.

look on you tube for programs from NOVA.. there are a good number of ones on physics.. quantum mechanics and string theory.. that explain things in easy terms.. I have got my girl friend watching them.. she likes them because the shows explain it in better terms then I can :D

As luck would have it, this week's new Skeptoid episode is about the Black Knight Satellite.  Read the transcript or listen to the podcast at the following link:

http://skeptoid.com/episodes/4365

I had a lot of fun learning more about this story. I learned a lot of history and some astronomical facts I didn't know. I'm glad I took the trouble, because if I had simply accepted the story that there's an alien satellite orbiting the Earth, I'd be wrong and I wouldn't have learned anything new. Worse, I'd have made a logical error, in being forced to accept a whole galaxy of wrong assumptions in order to shoehorn an improbable alien satellite into my reality. Neither legend nor mere debunking lead anywhere useful; it's only by tracking down the true facts that we earn the real rewards.

Cool story.  I wasn't at all familiar with it.  But I have to agree with Mr. Dunning, if you simply accept these kinds of things at face value OR if you just dismiss (debunk) them without investigating them, then you really do miss out on a lot of cool stuff.

Great find rafterman and a good explanation.   Thanks.

Believing when there is no compelling evidence is a mistake.  The idea is to withhold belief until there is compelling evidence and if the universe does not comply with our predispositions, okay, then we have the wrenching obligation to accommodate to the way the universe really is.  - Carl Sagan

"There is no difference between Communism and Socialism, except in the same ultimate end:  Communism proposes to enslave men by force, Socialism-by the vote.  It is merely the difference between murder and suicide."  - Ayn Rand
