That the files are classified means only that they might reveal military secrets useful to our enemies. It does NOT mean that they confirm anything at all about UFO’s.May 20, 2020 at 2:51 am #31566May 19, 2020 at 8:30 pm #31558
Why are the ancient alien experts always WHITE?
Ancient nonwhite civilizations were so dumb that their accomplishments can only be due to alien intervention.
It seems white civilization’s accomplishments (Plato, Aristotle, Copernicus, Newton) never the result of alien intervention.
Why do aliens hate white people?May 19, 2020 at 7:50 pm #31557May 17, 2020 at 5:45 pm #31551
Michael, this article, Why People Fall For Bullshit, explains you pretty handily:
BR: What makes people willing to consider bullshit?
GP: There seem to be two factors that underlie why someone might be particularly receptive to bullshit.
The first is response bias. What that means is some people are just more open to anything they come across. From the outset, they are less skeptical. This isn’t specific to bullshit. It’s kind of like gullibility, although gullibility has more to do with social settings.
[The second:] The anterior cingulate cortex triggers when there’s something off about a problem, and that allows us to detect when there might be bullshit. With bullshit, [this trigger] may only sometimes be pulled, and perhaps only for certain types of people, particularly analytic ones.
You are a bullshitee. The article also explains successful bullshitters like our President:
BR: Let’s say I’m interested in becoming a better bullshitter. What are some principles I should follow?
GP: A good way to do it is insert a lot of buzzwords and be vague.
If you say something direct, the people who agree with you will like it and the people who don’t won’t like it. But if you say something vague, people will bring what they think it means to it. And then everyone will like it — if you hit the perfect spot.May 17, 2020 at 5:31 pm #31550
So what is your view, Michael, on the Chupacabra? Bigfoot? Jersey Devil? The Tuttle Bottoms Monster? The Jackalope?May 17, 2020 at 5:22 pm #31549
Michael – Did the Christian God create aliens or are they evolved? I wish they would hover over Ireland for a few nights. It’s not fair you always get them. If they are not aliens in the UFO’s but actually members a deep state agency they might be able to find Jason Bourne.
I often wonder what Christians think in terms of intelligent life elsewhere. Is Jesus their savior, too? or did God create soulless intelligent beings? and if so why? Just for kicks? Or, if they have souls, do they have to make do with a cross-species savior from Earth? or do they get their own “Son of God” in the an alien body to match theirs?May 17, 2020 at 5:17 pm #31548May 17, 2020 at 4:21 am #31529
This is not a pseudo documentary. There are 24 hour cam surveillance of the phenomena as is it is happening all over the Ranch, the Mesa gets periodically illuminate while ufos appear in the sky. There are credible scientist on the staff. They are using science to investigate the phenomenon. You are predispose to assume it’s impossible because it challenges your paradigm.\
I think pretty clearly that is how the SHOW (are you forgetting it’s entertainment?) presents it to you and gullible you is simply taking it at face value, like the naive girl who here’s the horny man say, “Just give me your body tonight and I will love you forever.”
That is how cons work, Michael. Every long con (which is what this appears to be) works because there are people ready and even eager to suspend their ability to simply say to themselves “Really?”May 16, 2020 at 11:42 pm #31524
I checked out the Skinwalker Ranch video. The History channel used to be about history, but when it ran out of history (there’s only so much of it, after all), they got into covering tinfoil beanie material. UFO’s, haunted houses, the chupacabra and bigfoot, and woo along that line.
Don’t be a sucker. If you believe what you see and hear on pseudodocumentaries, you’re no more critical than Trump, who recently advised treating Covid 19 by imbibing disinfectants.May 16, 2020 at 6:20 pm #31520
@Reg and Robert Scientist don’t have a plausible explanation for Zeuiton Egypt, Skinwalker Ranch can be view 24 hours a day on the internet. Buddhist monks can combust paper in their hand and sit in boiling oil. All of these have no explanation. Science is deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to the supernatural.
Michael, your problem is the almost total absence of a BS detector. Maybe everything is possible, right? Maybe anyone can fly like a bird if they just start believing in Buddhism. Maybe an object can be both spherical and cubical at the same time. If everything is possible, truth is irrelevant and knowledge is impossible. What tools are you applying to disprove them? What intellectual tools are you applying to confirm your belief that “Buddhist monks can combust paper in their hand and sit in boiling oil”? Have you seen it happen in person? And if you have, what steps did you take to confirm that you weren’t being fooled?May 12, 2020 at 5:00 pm #31487
As for simplifying one’s life as a philosophy, since I’m slowly losing my ability to walk, I’m rethinking my living space to get rid obstructions to a wheelchair. And since I live in a small 1-bedroom apartment, that’s not easy. In fact, I’d probably be better off in an efficiency apartment with the same square footage.May 11, 2020 at 5:14 pm #31480
A lot of people don’t understand the nature of the expansion. They think everything is expanding. No. It is only space that’s expanding. It is the space between things that expands, not matter. Hence, your balloon example, Reg.
Most of my friends say they have been physically expanding during isolation, however that has nothing to do with doppler shifts and such.
Yeah, I’ve put on 2 or 3. LOLMay 11, 2020 at 2:41 am #31477
