I am actually thinking of doing another thread, just to piss them off.
Nah don't do that. You're not going to convince anyone using such means and it'll only make the ATS community look bad.
The Coward- I know it can be frustrating but I wouldn't worry about those myspacers too much. I have a MySpace myself and I've found the site is
mostly for musicians and otherwise it's basically a popularity contest. I briefly read a few posts on the messageboard and wasn't impressed.
I read parts of a thread called "is the big bang really the start of everything?"
I clicked on a guy, (who came off as cocky IMO) who goes by "Comet Dust," and looked at his myspace page. He's a college graduate and a 33 yr old
"lab tech." Big deal... I'm an engineering tech and college graduate myself. He didn't offer much insight in his posts or his myspace page.
Next I looked in the thread "Extraterrestrial UFOs are real. Must see info and videos."
I clicked on the guy called "CL" and went to his page. Another guy with some musical talent wanting to form band because he has big time
aspirations. Aren't there millions of dudes like that? Right...
Next I looked at the profile by a guy called "Six Strings." Now I did understand his frustrations on a mainstream science and cosmology forum being
overrun with UFO/ET stuff. Still, if you look at his myspace page he has his hero as Dr. Michio Kaku (prof in theoretical physics at the City Univ of
I'm not sure if "Six Strings" has read any of Kaku's works but I have. And I can tell you that in the first chapter (of Hyperspace) Dr. Kaku
likens humans to fish in a pond-- so sure that their little world is all that is and completely unaware of the land above the pond, or the sky above
the land, or the space above the sky. Publicly Dr. Kaku could be described as a curious agnostic... he clearly does not come across as a strict
NOW, in contrast
to those myspacers, let's look at the credentials of some who believe there is something to the UFO phenom:
Dr. Bernard Haisch is a professional astronomer and can be found HERE.
He even provides his CV, which can be
Just read his credentials. I think they speak just a bit louder than some
starving artist or some lab tech who makes 40k/yr.
Next we have Paul R. Hill who was an aeronautical engineer for NACA and NASA. Read about him on
Scroll down and look at this career and some of the positions he held. If that's
not impressive I don't know what is. Also, in the past I have encouraged people on ATS to read his book
Unconventional Flying Objects.
This book might be the best explanation for UFOs without having access to classified materials.
It is simply that good. Especially for scientifically minded skeptics like those myspacers.
Don't pay attention to those myspacers. You can no more force them to be interested in the UFO topic than they can force you to take a special
interest in thermal radiation or black holes. But if they try and argue, point them to the noteworthy scientists who have/had a great interest in
