The video below contains nothing Earth shattering or even new to any reader here. Yet, I believe it is very useful and quite good for showing your "skeptic" friends, because it's done by a skeptic who dropped his skepticism while researching for a book. Something I can very much relate to as it is what brought me here and how I came to know as much as I do.

For those unfamiliar with TED Talks, they are highly intellectual talks given around the country on just about any subject that can be researched, quantum physics, new math findings, computers, genetics, and they'll get wild and have a pilot talk about all that goes into a flight, or just have a comedian.

The binding tie is the highly intellectual audience and speakers.

All talks are about 20 minutes, and obviously an overview of their research, a basic intro.

The talk is given by the author of Facebook and many others that you will recognize.

It is merely 10 minutes, but one can see that by the end, his audience of professors, doctors, lawyers and such are very receptive and enthusiastic.

This is my first thread, so blast me gently.

Dam.

Of course it doesn't work. Why would my first thread work?

I'm sorry y'all. But I very much appreciate project posting it.

Thank you, I thought I had done it well, I will have to check on what I did wrong. But, it seemed like there was no way to check it until after I posted it. And, at least at first, it looked ok.

Dunno, but thanks for letting me know ....nicely.

If you hit the quote button on my post it quotes all of my text, including the bbcode for the youtube video.

Look for the [yvid ] tags.

Those are sons of God from elsewhere. They landed on mount Hermon. Possibly 200 of them. It has all been recorded in History. Many have bad intentions. Don't be fooled. Their DNA trickles through most of our veins. They are here now.

That guy is a wonderful sense of humour. Definitly the first UFO video I ever enjoyed.



Don't stress about thread issues, it's all a learning curve.

Not interested in "TED Talks" but I'm reacting to your sentence "a skeptic who dropped his skepticism ..." No such person! I'm a skeptic. Born one, still one and I'll die one.

Skeptic: a person inclined to question or doubt all accepted opinions.

You have skeptics and you have believers. A skeptic is driven by a necessity for irrefutable evidence of alleged claims. When such is provided, the skeptic moves on to the next claim. Irrefutable evidence doesn't cancel skepticism, it reinforces it. I'm a skeptic but not of UFOs as I've had more than my share of sightings.

I am skeptical of alleged claims of anything connected with extra-terrestrials and abductions.

Read my signature.

He has a book out as well but the reviews on Amazon and else where are not good...


I just finished reading it and was surprised that it is possibly the worst UFO book I have ever read (even worse than some of the most exploitative paperbacks from the 70s and 80s because at least they are fun to read). The subject - UFO hunter Chuck Zukowski - does not come across as even remotely interesting in the book...

Worst of all, the last few pages of the book are almost an insult to the reader, featuring blacked out or redacted words and phrases that make the book's supposedly exciting climactic scene into an incomprehensible mess. There is no explanation for why these pages are partially blacked out. They seem to imply that cattle mutilations are the work of Bigelow Aerospace employees using top secret craft - a charge that, if true, would put Bigelow on the hook for millions of dollars in damages from cattle owners over the past few decades. A pretty reckless accusation if not true.

One of the Worst UFO Books I Have Ever Read

This video is garbage is more of a reason why no one takes this phenomena seriously anymore.

Most of what the speaker says is outright lies, unfactual, no true proof to his empty words.

It's just a guy talking. He even opens by basically stating his career as a writer was a fail. I can only imagine the desperate steps he has taken to convince himself he is somehow "in the know".

Imho this video is bad substance for the ufo world, kind of like Tom Delong, Steven Greer, ancient aliens and all the other #e out there pretending to be in the know and offer nothing true or real to the conversation but light entertainment.

Why is this thread flagged and starred So much. The TED talk was a joke.

And I've been a believer since I was a child.

I don't think these talks are meant to convince anyone. Like you said it's just a guy talking, although I missed the part where he claims he's in the know.

Point out anyone discussing ufos who has brought true proof to their empty words

Why I believe in lights in the sky and daytime discs?

What a maroon.

People! There are no non-terrestrials in real time, coming here, and there never will be. For all intents, we are alone in our local area of the Universe. Cherish your time here.

Are you really sure you are a skeptic?

And now I'm going down the rabbit hole, or should I say tunnel of the 37th parallel.

It is TEDx, not TED.
Don't worry, the TED censors will probably take it down if it gets too popular, just like they did with Rupert Sheldrake's video (and censored Russell Targ).

On a semantic note, only a complete moron doesn't believe in UFO.s

UFO still stands for Unidentified Flying Object.

Is somebody really claiming that everything that flies out there, at all times, is identified.

Why do you doubt me? Be specific. Have you created a qualifying criteria that I can respond to? You sound as if you want to start a flame war in which I won't participate.
