bore you with quotes, you did compile it after all! I just wanted to know why you chose to write a 377 page book rather than simply ridicule him
across the net and walk away. I like to think people arent so stupid to fund anyone without due cause, but if they are, then they probably deserve to
lose their money!
Just because someone claims to be doing no harm doesn't make it so. I could claim to be the king of Jupiter, but that wouldn't make it so simply on
strength of my statement. The fact was and is that he was and IS doing harm.
Every time Wayne makes a post, anywhere across the internet, he is linking to his book for sale. Now, there's nothing wrong with selling a book, but
there IS something wrong with promoting it to that extent, then claiming that you are "not asking for anything". You're asking for around 20 quid per.
Be up front, be honest, and it's all good.
But it went deeper than that.
When questioned, he never, EVER provided a straight answer other than "buy the book". Rather than even making any attempt to refute the points raised
against his hypothesis - because he could NOT refute them, else he would have at least attempted it - he raised an army of "light warriors" and tried
to shut us down, to silence us, to take away our voices. That speaks to a profound level of dishonesty. I'm real big on free speech, and the free
interchange of ideas. Only by rigorous debate and answer can the truth be arrived at.
Wayne didn't want anyone to arrive at the truth - he preferred to silence his opposition instead.
We had a blog, separate from ATS, on the subject. Wayne even came there, but not to debate his ideas. He came to try to shout us down. When that
didn't work, we came under attack by his army of "Light Warriors". Twice. the first attack, directly against the blog, failed miserably. The second,
an e-mail spam attack against the management of Wordpress which hosted the blog, was a success. Rather than put up with the spamming, coordinated
directly on Wayne's Facebook page as pointed out in the book, they shut us down.
I will NOT be silenced. People deserve the opposing viewpoints, otherwise they are not capable of making informed decisions. A one-sided "debate" only
gives them one perspective to decide from, a tilted view. In order to preclude any possibility of being silenced again, I put the book together and
released it into the wild, for free. It is now spread all around the planet in innumerable locations, and even I couldn't erase it from the internet,
much less Wayne being able to do so.
So then, I put the book out there to insure that the voice of reason, and opposition to this preposterous "Hidden records" thesis, will be there for
all eternity, as long as Wayne is trying to hoodwink the gullible. It's there so that they can read the opposing viewpoint, and make an informed
decision in the matter. Which way they decide is not my concern - the fact that they have a choice, an opposing viewpoint to use in that decision, IS
Not only is Wayne harming his followers by trying to hide the truth, he harmed me directly by trying to silence my voice. That will never happen, as
long as I draw breath.
I do not know anything about that female 'Dr' or these e.t. signals supposedly found...but I couldnt find any refute of the Mars Cydonia maps or the
correlation between Egyptian sites and those of the Pleiades and orion, or the stonehenge site. From what little reading i have done on it, the
similarities I have seen from herschel are uncanny.
Dcmb1409 is much better at explaining that apparent uncanniness than I am, but the basics are that Wayne picks and chooses his "points of congruence",
and rejects equally valid points within the same context for no apparent reason. he picks the points that support his thesis, and ignores the ones
which refute it. In the absence of a valid criteria for doing so, that is intellectually dishonest. In a court of law, it is known as "leading the
In order for the thesis to be valid, it must either account for all points, or give a compelling reason for the ones chosen, and a compelling reason
for rejecting the others.. Simply saying "well, it's because these fit and the others don't" doesn't work - it turns the thesis into a self-fulfilling
prophecy, It is, in effect, using the thesis to prove itself, If that's the case, no points or maps are necessary at all - just prove the thesis with
Wayne then draws the lines between the chosen points to "verify" his thesis in a process known as "leading the eye". The intent of the lines is to
emphasize the chosen points subconsciously, and de-emphasize the rejected points. take away the lines, and look at it again, accounting for ALL of the
possible points. Watch the "pattern" disappear.
As dcmb1409 so eloquently puts it, Wayne could find a "hidden star map" in the sesame seed on a roll, or the pepperonis on a pizza.
