Most people now realize this was a promotional stunt for a sci-movie.

No, actually they don't. Do you have a link for that?

Huh?  Wait a minute.  This was a promo for a sci fi movie?  After the War of the Worlds scare in 1938, the military is going to call a citywide blackout and fire all that ammo at a target for a movie and during a major war??

Just kidding... i know it was real... but saying it's a real event doesn't get much traction here.  I just like to discuss these things... keep a dialog open.  Lot of rabid nay-sayers here, and folks that just like to argue...  So, if i say it's a hoax, maybe the contrarians will insist it's a factual case?  thanks for checking it out.  It's one of the great UFO cases.  And there's SO MANY... but not one word from Government.

i agree with you... just trying to 'head-off' the naysayer skeptics at the pass.

All the horrible skeptics and naysayers discussed this event for about two months on the Best evidence threads. Maybe you should do a serch and read pages and pages of stuff we wrote about the events. Is there something you'd like to add?

So you post a false opinion to try and get a leg up on those dirty filthy skeptics?


Why?

Wouldn't it be better to offer the merits of the actual evidence and procede from there? Or are you afraid that the case might draw too much scrutiny and ruin any ETH circle jerk you had planned?

Honestly, I've seen you shy away from any actual discussion in favor of some sort of ETH confirmation from fellow believers. 'Yay, we figured it all out without those damned skeptics and their twice-damned facts!'

If that's all you're interested in I doubt you are going to have much success here.

Maybe there's some new people that would like to make new comments?  Though i'm sure the "pages and pages of stuff you wrote" are absolutely riveting.

Pro tip:  Responding to a post to say that you're ignoring it is the opposite of actually ignoring it.  Ignoring posts involves ignoring them (i.e. not responding to them or acknowledging them).

I've gathered that you have a huge "mad on" for skeptics, but that tactic is simply duplicitous bevahiour and in an open discussion forum, cannot be condoned.

Edit: The so called 'Battle of LA' incident is also hardly "one of the great UFO cases". I think that you've done a great disservice to yourself here.

don't feed it.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
