Colin Andrews adds to the dis-info mix 09/09/09.
On the 9th of September 2009, Colin Andrews has
released a statement about the Dutch Butterfly.
He added it to his '2009 overview'.
He has nothing to offer except repeating a few of
the unsubstantiated claims, in the same manner
as CCC is still posting the cover-story as if it were fact.
Below is what he had to say,
followed by my comments.
"The media and others in The Netherlands have been hyping
what they claim is the discovery of the largest crop circle ever.
Well firstly it falls well short of that claim but is as
shown in the photograph very attractive."
He starts out with telling utter nonsense because
nobody in the Netherlands has been hyping about anything?
He exaggerates still more in a side note to the image
where he even calls it "a large scale media hype"?
As a Dutchman, I can assure Mr. Andrews that
hardly anyone in the Netherlands knows about this CC
as the story has been extremely professionally suppressed.
Why does he bother to actually 'nitpick about size'?
"When it seemed very few in the crop circle community were reporting
upon the story, which was being circulated to a large mailing list of researchers around the world, more E-mails followed claiming that it was made
by a team of 60. This claim was challenged by some people and a third circular followed stating that the construction was filmed and
that this film would be released to the public."
Above is where he merely rehashes existing unsubstantiated rumors.
Meaning, he refuses to actually offer a statement
or an analysis on his own behalf?
"Its really a no story, its just another crop circle made by people,
leaving many around the world without rational explanation and also
many more that are indeed made by humans but that attracted paranormal attention
- this neither tackled by the media who run
with just easy, crazy stories that require very little work on their part."
Above he is basically telling everyone to move along because
according to him there is nothing to see here?
Is that really good advice to give to 'fellow researchers'?
He is not linking to any facts/details?
Therefore, we are supposed to take his word on this?
So, why is he complaining about "the media not doing their work"
while he himself also has nothing to offer?
"Time is ticking in a period of critical transition,
not helped with more wasted effort and energy.
We don't seem to be passing the test of our time do we!"
It seems indeed that Mr. Colin Andrews himself
is not "passing the test of our time"?
