My thoughts exactly. Some people require proof for everything, yet every day, they use things that they have no proof of. I have just come to ignore
the debunkers/skeptics. I think their hobby is debunking anything that comes in their path.
I'm surprised the debunkers haven't yet tried to debunk the concept of love or the human soul.. For example, they could say: "What is love? Can
you hold it? Can you touch it? Does it exist? Have you ever felt love? If so, prove it! Love is only a chemical reaction, and nothing more!" Or the
human soul; they could say: "Prove to me that souls exist! We have no proof that a soul exists, we only have circumstantial evidence!" Over 90% of
the world clearly believes exists, yet I'm sure some of the debunkers would love to debunk the notion of a human soul.
Clearly, not all things can be proven. I am a pharmacist, and we use medications every day that we have no idea how they work!! Absolutely no idea! We
have hypothesis of how we THINK they work, but despite that, doctors use them anyway. And why? Because they work. They don't need to know why every
drug works...they just work.
When we look at crop circles, and see how amazingly complex they are, and watch how they appear over seconds on film......most people are in awe. They
could truly be considered miracles, in a way. A miracle is often uneplainable, yet they can be observed by many.
Those who aren't in awe....well, personally, I think they just have no faith in anything, so they try to destroy the faith in others.
Rather than trying to figure out if the circles are man-made or alien made or earth made or real or hoaxes, etc...I would rather focus our time on
trying to figure out what they are trying to communicate, like Ruby and Silva, and others have done.
Think of this analogy, too:
A primitive tribe comes upon a radio or a phone or a computer. The person on the other end is trying to communicate an important message: a tidal wave
is heading for your village and you will be wiped out. Move inland!" The senders of the message also send pictures. The tribe doesn't understand the
message (they don't speak english), but they can see the symbols.
Some in the tribe are in awe: they call it a "miracle" simply because they have no experience with the technology that created the phone, the
computer, or the radio. Others are trying to decipher the message and they do decipher the messages and try to tell the rest of the village what the
message says. But still others say it is a trick, saying it is a hoax or bad magic. They accuse whoever is sending them of trying to trick them,
instead of listening to the messages that the others deciphered. So what happens? Their village gets wiped out in the tidal wave, and everyone dies.
Or maybe the message was trying to tell them something wonderful! Look; we have brought you a radio! You can now listen to music every day! Classical
music, rock music, whatever you want. We will show you how to build a radio! But the native skeptics say it is a hoax, and the elders bury the
information, because then they would lose power and control over their tribe. So, music never comes to the tribe.
The circle makers could be trying to warn us or something, or they could be trying to share something beautiful with us. We will never know if we
continue to argue about whether they are "real" or not or who made them.
