i was looking for the rant section, but couldnt find it.
anyways, i was discussing general "conspiracy" topics with someone, and i mentioned ufo's, and he had a nerve to say, well, ufo's are like the
lochness monster, referring to the evidence presented on the two.
excuse me. how does a few videos and pics of a sea creature in a lake, even challenge sightings going all the way back to before christopher columbus,
(christopher columbus himself even saw one) possible drawings of ufo's on the pyramid walls, tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of
reported sightings, thousands of videos, hundreds of testimonies from ex military, law enforcement, civilians, etc.., inquiry from the actual
presidents of the united states themselves, etc... how does that even compare?
i know this dude considers himself intelligent, because he watched a couple videos on quantum physics, and thinks he is the truth on the subject, and
he thinks his logic is above most, but between the discussion on ufo's, aids, 9/11, and physics, this guy is not who he might think he is, and maybe
im taking a jab right now at him, that i shouldnt as a friend, but wtf.
the worst part, is like you all know, he is one of tens of millions of people within our country, who think just like that, and have stupid friends to
say, "yup, your right, that makes sense to me".
ugh, disgusting, but i can only lead by example. so i say my side of things, and then i offer him some resources he can use to educate himself on the
matter, and then come back and talk to me, and you know the response to that is always, "eh, i dont care that much".
really, you seemed real passionate about it when you thought i was not capable enough of pointing out your logical fallacies, and busting out
information you had no idea of. hmmmmmmmmmmm
he was like, most of that stuff can be explained anyways. well, i never said it was all true, and if you had done research into the topic, ufologist
will agree that alot of stuff can be explained, but that doesnt negate the ones that cannot. he didnt have much to say after that, because he was
under the assumption that anyone with a vested interest in ufo's or the paranormal, just believe everything that comes through the door without and
bleh. sorry to rant
