Hello all !

Great ! I've seen this thread before. Starts with someone saying RCH is
a nut....then eventually the wierd theories start coming out anyway that
everyone seemed to be trying to avoid...ahhhhh!...it's a virus ! Don't u
know this guy thrives on critiscism of this type ! It's like some kind of
cosmic shamany...draw in the humans with your crazy theories..then blow
their minds !

Where's the photo from (in the first post) ? That's definitely 'chaotic genius'
at work material :->

Where did RCH say the thing about the Face being nuked ? I hav'nt seen that
...was it in print or on C2C ? Sounds like classic magical creative/destructive
stuff to me. Bring out your theory then destroy it.

You see this is what I think RCH is up to (unconsciously?)...and I think the
time has come to say this...he is deliberately 'obfuscating' his findings to
force us to THINK FOR OURSELVES. You can lead a horse to water....

That nuking thing is in print, but it was not entirely Hoagland that suggested that it was. It was created and then spread around like wild fire by people that are involved in "saving the phenomenon" and spread further by him.

These outragious claims have been created by people that put so much time into that whole face on Mars crap, and then once the photos come in, they go into complete denial. RCH is one of these people.

Hello GoldEagle,

Don't tell me, you're talking about the infamous 'catbox' face release which
was from a strange angle AND badly processed ?

Have you looked at ALL of Cydonia...The City, The Face, The Cliff, The D&M
Pyramid, The Square (The Square is a few miles to the South of the main
complex) ?

Join the main city structures up dot-to-dot and you get a Pentagon. The main
City pyramid is also a Pentagonal structure. So is the D&M:

homepage.ntlworld.com...

Actually I sympathise if all u see is 'rocks'. This stuff is well outside our
Paradigm at the moment. Beware of the internal censor !

Let go of your mental straight jacket...your society put it there ! (Please
note I only say this in reference to Cydonia...I do not judge you as a
person only your PERCEPTION of CYDONIA)...

[Now I've got to meet RCH for that secret payoff as his media catalyst
....ho!...ho!..ho!..you did'nt believe the # above did you ?...there you
I'm at it again !]

I don't quite understand what your getting to with this? Are you supporting the Cydonia thing, against it and being sarcasitic, or just insulting me indirectly? State your point a little better please.

You say that MGS pictures were bad? Alot better then those Viking ones that you people base your Cydonia stuff on. Looks like the picture was out of focus.

That map of Cydonia was quite intresting but, to me they look like dusty mesas, canyon faces, rough and broken terrain. It's a bit strange how stose structures just "are there", but nothing to get to excited about.

Also you proved my point, people do listen and belive stuff on C2C even though it's for entertainment value.

They should have a disclaimer come on every half hour saying "NOT A LEGITEMENT SOURCE OF INFORMATION!, FOR ENTERTAINMENT VALUE ONLY! GUEST'S THEORIES ARE NOT TO BE TAKEN LIKELY! DO NOT LISTEN TO PROGRAM WHILE ON MEDICATION OR OPERATING HEAVY MACHINERY.....". In that voice like movie trailers have.

Read what people have posted before on this thread and you'll understand.

I'm sorry GoldEagle, that was'nt meant to be insulting ! :-(

I support RCH, although he does seem to cause some confusion
(this may be deliberate on his part....or just a character flaw ?).

I honestly believe Cydonia is architectural Intelligence and there
is much to find there, especially if you look beyond RCH if you don't
like him.

Not that I don't like him, just what he is spreading. This thread is not about Cydonia or anything like that (well a bit). It's just Richard Hoagland himself that needs to be examined.

It just so happens that he has embedded himself in the Cydonia thing and he is the self-proclaimed leader of that field of "science". So if he gets questioned, the entire Cydoina thing need to be questioned also. That new Iapetus thing, he goes into the thing about space elevators and carbon nanotubes, now the subject of space elevators needs to be addressed. We know he is no chemist, mathmatician, or physicist. So he makes people belive he is. Going on C2C AM is the best way to do this, for one reason, millions listen to it, few belive it. But the people that do belive it in a group of millions is quite a bit.

I'm not going to lie but I belived him at first too. I regret that, I looked like an idiot. Thats why I started this thread.

Mabey you need to look deeper into the Cydonia thing. Mabey there is something there? Mars, Iapetus, and well.. the entire universe is a strange place that we didn't even start to understand. If you belive in the Cydonia thing, make sure Hoagland is not your resource of information. Come up with your own theories and comapare with others.

This is priceless, if this isn't proof the Richard Hoagland needs some form of medical attention soon, I don't know what will. Trust me you will start laughing if you have common sense not to belive it!


NAZI ARTIFACTS ON MARS!

Got to give him some credit, he notices thing a bit too well.




Germany was not fighting two fronts with the Allies and Russians, they where set up to repel the oncoming Martians, LOL. jk or am I?

I think he threw this Nazi connection in to reinforce his Cydonia thing, they used their "Nazi UFOs" to fly and recover alien technology from cydonia.

For the record, the Iapetus-is-a-Spece-Elevator theory is my theory, not Hoagland's. I posted it on this thread:

I read Hoagland's site, and I find it interesting. That is NOT to say I find it compelling or believe it, it's just...interesting.

I think Hoagland is a relatively smart, passionate guy that really believes in what he is saying. He has had some credentials in the past (was a PR guy for NASA and later a science advisor to Cronkite), but clearly he has not been a part of the serious scientific community for many years, if in fact he ever was.

I think the big problem with Hoagland and others like him, is that they go from "isn't this an interesting correlation" type statements to "this HAS to be X, how could it be anything else!!!" Not good science.

And the people that are regulars on his site forums really are...well...nutjobs. They talk a lot about their abduction experiences and the Martian civilization they saw in dreams, and such.

Don't get me wrong about him, he's a smart guy. But he is in no way down to Earth. He should go to a university and get a degree in something before he could be considered remotely credible in that field. That man has a heck of an imagination, but he may be causing more damage to the field of good science then benifit. He has followers that hang on to every word he says. I call those people, Hogie's, or Hogie's Heros, stuff like that. Hoagland is applying his skills in the wrong field of psudoscience

No it's not, it was Hoagland's that post was made almost a month ago.

Sure, I hear you. As I said, he's let his imagination color his observations, which is never good science.

I think he does have a Master's degree in physics, though.

Nope he doesn't, I googled it and turned out empty. If he is one, he is a bad one at that. Many scientists and mathmaticians proved him wrong at several occasions. Don't believe me read this article produced from a real mathmatican about his "finding" about Cydonia.

www.math.washington.edu...

This is definitive evidence that he does NOT have a Master's in Physics, it turns out he has a "licence" in it. You can aquire those if you have "connections" for free.

Correction, he does not even have a licence in physics. In fact he did not even graduate collage. Apparently this guy is a misfit amoung the science community.


Original quote from space.com

Hoagland did not graduate from college. "I didn't actually get a degree," he said last week. He says he was "possibly the youngest museum curator in the country" in the mid-1960s at age 19. He is a science writer with a keen interest in space.



There you have it. He's just intrested in space and not educated in it. His "award" was the Angstrom Medal for Excellence in Science. But there is a problem about it.


Original quote from space.com

Hoagland lists among his awards having received the Angstrom Medal for Excellence in Science. But there's a catch.

Uppsala University in Sweden, with approval from Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, gives out the Angstrom Prize, which includes a medal and a cash award, given in the honor of 18th Century Swedish scientist Anders-Jonas Angstrom. Hoagland's medal, however, came from the separate Angstrom Foundation Aktiebolag (AFAB). This is a privately-owned company with no connection to Uppsala University or the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

"There were no scientists involved in that decision," says Ralph Greenberg, a professor of mathematics at the University of Washington. Others who have researched Hoagland's medal say it carries little if any merit and was not awarded by scientists or a scientific organization.



This is definitive evidence that this guy is a fruad. He lied about being the first person that theorized that there are oceans under Europa's ice layer. This guy is really starting to anger people in the science community including me.

You must read more about this guy from space.com;

All of us have things to offer. All of us have flaws.

I respect him for opening our eyes twenty years ago to possible remarkable things about Mars, and the guts to face the public often without any solid evidence.

Groundbreaking new models of the cosmos can only surface with this kind of guts. Whether the models are valid or not, they only act as a bridge closer towards the truth of who we are and where we came from.

I am also not naive to assume his research is soley his. It's a compilation of research by numerous people, including him. Even if the models are quirky, I thank God at least they are asking these serious questions.

Flaws? Perhaps. But never forget, the people who criticize Hoagland have thus seen and learned things that makse them skeptical. Therefore, a soundboarding effect has occured:

People who might make errors can teach the rest of us valuable lessons. We learn from such errors. If you see things wrong with what Hoagland says, then his work has offered theories which has made you think and given you the insight to see possible errors or not. Thus, you are moving closer towards finding the truth. He is a valid and important part of the truth seeking process, just as much as you are.

Instead of blasting him - or others like him - in vast debunking attempts.... step away from the black and white mode of alternative research that assumes you are either right or wrong, pro or con, orthodox or anti-orthodox. Instead, possible critical flaws - or peer critical review - can be presented in a positive helpful cooperative manner to encourage peer error correction.

Unfortunately, the alternative community has not learn these basics yet of peer to peer interaction and criticism. The result isn't an exchange/debate of theories, with a respect for each other. But instead, the protective and insecure nature of human emotions surface and walls between individuals comes up. The later is not condusive to truth seeking, nor reflective of compassion towards other humans. And - as we are going to have to submit to sooner or later - the compassion approach towards people who share different ideas is the only way we are going to gain access to true spiritual enlightenment.

The thing is, Hoagland takes things in black and white. The science and psuedoscience are polarized, the grey zone only causes more problems then it solves. The area inbetween is porous at times, nevertheless it must be understood that we should stick with what we know for sure, which is science. What you say is indeed correct, but shouldn't apply to him.

However, he has caused more harm to the scientific community then he can get away with. He dosen't cooperate with any one on our side, he dodges attempts by genuine scientists, to confront him and "discuss" the findings of both sides. He showed great profiteering over the unfortunate Sumatra Earthquake. He is just a figment of the media, without Coast to Coast AM he would fade away into obscurity. I don't see a scientific genius, is see a misguided star trek fan. He has lied about his background to get to where he is now and still continues to do so.

Richard C Hoagland That Iapetus was, indeed— An ancient “seedship” … from the Stars.


Wow there you have it, the most uneducated assuption imaginable, after I finished reading more of his rantings from a new chapter on his website about the Iapetus stuff.

In this chapter Hoagland expands on his information (disinfo) about Iapetus having structures on it's surface. To read some of his material about this view this link connected to the page on his site.

www.enterprisemission.com...

Hoagland uses home-made satallite analysis techniques, he was never trained in this feild. Yet, he acts like an expert at finding structures on planetary bodies. HE'S NOT! Infact he uses some tricks with the JPEG image format to make things appear that are not really there.

Read this convenient article here by Phil Plait: www.badastronomy.com...

See it's all a scam.
