Thats fair but in saying that why point out stuff that is obliviously fake. Like for example the skeptic.com crop circle. I mean come on if you are serious about being a skeptic at least made good arguments, not ones that a 5 yr old could think of. And he doesnt really need to go into great detail all you have to do is one point of a unknown origin picture and state why it is fake not the stupid hubcap s***

The skeptic.com bit was offensive to you? It was comic relief of a sort. And if you've done some investigation about crop circles, you'll find that admitted hoaxers have come forward and not only described how they do it but actually videotaped their creation on multiple occasions. If you press for it, I'll give you some related video links. But about the hubcap... So that hubcap was obviously fake? Well, of course it is when he tells you that it is a hubcap. But does it look all that different from the Trent photos? Here is another video that goes into a little more dept...

This guy is a clown always has been always will be. Example of a skeptic, sit behind a chair, hear things, read about things and just assume they are not true. Get off your lazy duff and go spend some time really researching, get your hands dirty and stop being afraid of the unknown.

If these things have been proven why are people still trying to prove them?

If I tried to explain all of the dirty hands research that I have done and have been involved in, it would make you're skeptical mind spin.

By all means, make my skeptical mind spin. Don't hold back any details.

If the paranormal didn't exist, why would the CIA and Naval Intelligence would spend billions of dollars in some paranormal programs? There are others. The remote viewings programs are other proofs. The facts they are not precise [u]yet [/u] doesn't mean they were not valid. IMHO Michael Shermer is practicing disinformation. He's not the first one, he won't be the last.

Why indeed do the military and intelligence agencies spend all the money they do on the things they do? Excellent question. Answer? Because they can. It doesn't make the paranormal any more legitimate or real though. After all, they scrapped the whole remote viewing gig didn't they? Would they have cut the program loose if it had yielded fruit? Nope.

They (the military) say they scrapped it but also say so many things. If it didn't work why did they continue for so many years? There must have been some positive results, despite what you may think. Why did the CIA brainwashed so many kids at Puharich's Turkey Farm? Why was the place burned down? What we know about the whereabouts of the military could be inscribed on the back of 50c stamp.. what we don't know about, I don't think there is enough memories on all the computers of all UM members combined...
