The Raelean's kind of got over half of there number arrested a while back, due to the fact that there leader said that the world would end in 2000, and a giant flying saucer would come and carry them off, when it did not happen they rioted and all got arrested. Oh well there is always next year.

Yes, that is my quote. It specifically addresses the highlighted statement made by Mr. X, which is abundently clear to anyone who cared to read it. The reference to President Bush was regarding an earlier comment he had made in another, completely different thread. Mr. X has a way of spouting highly irritating and controversial nonsense and then asks everyone not to get upset and/or offended. The thread in question was deleted by Daz the terminator, otherwise I would give you a link to it. :s04 As an example, imagine your feelings if I were to say something like 'All Scottish men are skirt wearing pansies, by the way, I don't mean to offend anyone or start an argument.' Understand the absurdity?
Even though it has nothing to do with the subject at hand, the answer to your question is yes, I am aware of Bush's foreign policy. What of it? and how does his policy and my yet to be stated feelings about it have anything to do with either this thread or the paranormal, for that matter?
I also travel quite a bit, and to tell you the truth I haven't seen any Hari Krishnas hanging out at any of the airports I've been to, unless they've all migrated to California. :-/ Neither have I seen anyone disavow the Raelians being a cult in this thread. Except maybe for Mr. X, but he is Australian.
* - Althalus, your link is the same as the one I posted earlier.
Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep insights can be winnowed from deep nonsense. ~ Carl Sagan
"...man has an irrepressible tendency to read meaning into the buzzing confusion of sights and sounds impinging on his senses; and where no agreed meaning can be found, he will provide it out of his own imagination." ~ Arthur Koestler
