but I don't think any woman with kids would stay with someone who was hallucinating to this point of making up hours of this stuff and sounding genuine and normal the whole time.
Excellent point. I dont think any women that is abused by their husbands regularly would stay with them or stay with someone with a drinking problem or who is a drug addict or who cheats on them and...sounding genuine and normal the whole time. It just doesn't happen. Does it? How about a husband that abuses little children? Unless the spouse was manipulated emotionally....ha ha! No way that happens.
And yes, there is no psychiatrist in the world that would listen to this and think this person was delusional because...he has a bloated resume and he went to "Tech University.. Dot com". And he has kids and a wife that won't leave him.
Sometimes on here I think some members don't have a life outside of the net surely YOU both must have heard of stories like that
In psychology and logic, rationalization or rationalisation (also known as making excuses) is a defense mechanism in which controversial behaviors or feelings are justified and explained in a seemingly rational or logical manner to avoid the true explanation, and are made consciously tolerable – or even admirable and superior – by plausible means. It is also an informal fallacy of reasoning.

For some reason we can teleport to the moon but then need a manta ray spaceship to get anywhere else.
That might be the simplest thing to work out in all of this.
The Moon is tidally locked to the Earth...line of sight, with both the departure and destination points having to be in sync...?
Whereas the other planets and sphere etc, will not be tidally locked with the departure point..i'm guessing here, but thought this might explain that one particular point.
There is a spacecraft out in the far reaches of the Solar System now (New Horizons) sending a steady stream of data back to Earth at the moment. What you are actually suggesting is that, other than the moon, we aren't clever enough to work out the movement of other heavenly bodies or spacecraft to send the teleport datastream to. When in fact we have already proved we were capable of doing so decades ago. And if we can work out how to teleport live human beings to the moon then I'm sure we could do so to a spaceship in orbit.

Actually, in courts and similar tens of thousands or millions of situations per day, we just take people's word because often, but not always, there is no evidence. Your boss says to you "the customer asked that we do this......." do you demand proof from him? When your child says "Daddy I saw a deer in the backyard....." do you demand proof from him? When your wife says "a checkout clerk was rude to me today" do you demand proof from her? When your teachers told you things in school most often it didn't come with proof, did you always put up your hand and say "teacher, before we go any further, I demand proof?"
So I'm not quite sure what world you are living in. Really it comes down to credibility of a source.

He had stated quite clearly that when he is picked up for these off-world meetings in Texas, goes to the meetings, then returns, only minutes have elapsed according to clock time. Haven't we known about the "time dilations" effects for speed of light and faster travel for a long time? Is this a surprise?
We are aware of the effects of time dilation. That's why it's a surprise. If he had spent an hour travelling faster than light, then many hours would have passed back on Earth. In other words, time dilation works in exactly the opposite way to what is being described.

I can see freemasonry tying into it as well.
Huh? Where, pray tell, do you see any shred of a "tie-in" to freemasonry in this individual's fabrication?
Just curious. Can you be specific?

Yes there was a shred in the posts I was replying to.
No, I don't care to specify
I watched all 4 episodes in sequence. Episode 3 I developed a slight sense of disbelief. By episode 4, I just couldn't buy into it. He lived on the same ship for 6 years and couldn't describe the galley? That's why these questions were asked. He started to slip on the details. How do you not remember eating in the same place for 6 years? I can vividly recall my elementary school cafeteria, both in layout and menu. Then the episode ends with David saying:
"you can tell if someone's lying through changes in their body language".
Episode 4, when they get to the details, he spends most of his time with his hands clasped together, wringing his fingers. In episodes 1-3, he is answering questions he could have guessed would be asked. When he gets pressed for details, he begins to stutter more, and brings his hands together. He was in service for 20 years. Yet doesn't provide any details about how he spent his time.
I want so badly to believe this. I truly do. Follow up on his website, first thing I notice is a "Donate Now" button on every page, and A WEB STORE SELLING MERCH!! Not to mention you have to be a member to even view this contentyou have to be a member to even view this content.
I read every comment on every episode posted at this point in time. They are littered with spelling and grammar errors, nonsensical commentary, and cheerleading that I suspect some of to be staged. The revolutionary feeling I had at the end of episode 1 was wistfully squelched by the lowbrow responses.
Please, if any like-minded individuals read this comment: replenish my belief with authentic testimony! Many of you commented supporting the underlying message of "love and forgive"- I hesitate to buy into anything promoting inaction at a time like this
