"Ancient Aliens" is an historically and scientifically ignorant hypothesis, and the world would be a better place if there were some way to prosecute the people who promulgate it in the media.
May I congratulate you, sir, for you have one of the most closed minds I have the misfortune of interacting with. You have the same mentality as those who smeared both Galileo and Copornicus. Please, give yourself a nice pat on the back, sir. I do believe that Mr. Schickelgruber would have pinned a medel on your chest for that paragraph.
And apprently, you'd probably want to prosecute all those folks who believe in alien life, who believe we have been visited....and not in mainstream belief in that we are all there is, and that we managed to build all those incredible feats of engineering, yet we somehow managed to lose. Or that we are the highest forms of life. Not to mention you don't seem to care about first amendment rights, either. Might as well go out and send police and federal agents to go crack down on various talk radio progams, paranormal conferences, books and television shows that discuss such stuff and so on. Got a plank you'd like me to walk, My Name is Legion?
You sure you don't work for some government, military or religious group?
Promulgate it in the media?
You mean like Von Daniken?
Why would you want to prosecute them.. you might as well prosecute every purveyor of origin myths.
Ego, scientists, well the closed minded ones in the mainstream, are more arrogant than rock stars and pro athletes, only difference is the last two get more sexual congress.
To mainstream scientists, the ones on a big, fat government grant, anyhow, look at paranormal investigators as bugs, insects, thorns in the side, or even using unflattering ethic nicknames when describing how they fell about us.
Give him time, he probably finds the idea of supression of ideas more enjoyable than sex....his type often does. Plus remember, mainstream scientists, historians, politicians, military authorities and the like have one thing in commen, they love to play god and want nothing more than to throw a few thunderbolts at us, the 'unwashed' as it may be. Plus they'd rather bite of their own tongues and swallow it than even suggest their answers might be wrong, even in the slightest.
Also, this reminds me of a quote one fellow with funky hair one said.
Sorry if this is not some unflattering, cheesy "LOL" type picture or camparison to anyone in a silly costume or mask, but I don't fly that way. Though, if I might correct ole' Albo on one bit is that society has not forgotten the gift, but more like frowning upon the gift. Society loves its servant's though.
Personally, I don't know which is more dogmatic, the mainstream scientific community, or the mainstream religious community....at the latter have been proven to be able to convert and change their view points at certain times. And I remember Hahi Hawas threating to chop of Richard Hoagland's head should he ever come to Eygpt, which he plans to do....given Zahi's track record (I heard ole's Zahi might be having some legal problems and if guilty, might spend a year in jail....been a while since I heard this, still is ammusing, and sad, in a way, though), and that he's threatening harm to alternative ideas and theories, My Name is Legion would probably get all warm and tingly as such an suggestion.
And personally, I'd love to get an autographed copy of Van Daniken's books.
