Yeah this was a very thorough owning of the Ancient Astronaut theorists. It's still possible that we had visitors before, just not the way that these theorists think .

The dubunker shows his own bias at the end about Christianity, etc., IIRC.

I'll watch it later but if the debunker is heavily Christian I don't know if they'll be right either. There's a lot of evidence now that elements required for life have come off asteroids in the past which I'm sure he won't mention.
But yeah i don't think anyone takes ancient aliens seriously do they? It's an entertainment show, but it's pretty sad the history channel shows stuff like this.

you missed posting this in the correct thread:
http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=224748


but props for the link... seems real good so far. of course i'm a little disappointed in the guy dipping in to weasel words at times, but most of the time he seems to identify his target clearly.

the show is hilarious. an embarrassment but hilarious

I used to love the history channel, but i guess making programming for intelligent people is a recipe to lose money. Appealing to the honey boo boo crowd is where the money is.

well yah, thinking both aliens are the cause of the 'unknown' or some sort of god represents identical irrational thinking

he may also have meant this-- that both wordings come to the same thing in peoples' minds.

therefore, maybe it's not really so "irrational."

Whatever he meant, it is 100% irrational to use totally unprovable (not to mention ridiculous sounding) entities of a mystical, magical or 'highly / "Alien" technological' power as a write-off for things you do not understand.

I do not understand therefore -

MAGIC
WITCHCRAFT
ANGELS
ALIENS
GHOSTS
DEMONS
FAIRIES

etc - it is all equally lazy and irrational to jump to such primitive and unprovable scapegoats when met with a problem that you can not initially explain.

you're right, of course... rationality could only understand to a certain extent the need for this kind of thing.


my point is-- that doesn't mean the burning need for a belief system is any less real. heaven help those miserable SOB's who insist otherwise.

i am a burn victim from that way of thinking, you might say. :P
