Thanks for your kind words.
I quite agree. IIRC, one of the reasons atheist C.S.Lewis became a Christian was because the Gospel narratives etc. were not some polished production
. . . but very human narratives full of human flaws instead of some polished Hollyweed disinfo number.
I think a LOT of UFO narratives are exactly like that--full of humanness. And therein are GREAT CLUES as to authenticity. And I think that sort of
thing--that part of the story is typically very hard to quantify. It is a kind of intuition thing to assess it.
And, imho, most naysayers are "HYPER RATIONALISTS" who pretend that the RELIGION OF SCIENCE is truly precise, pristine, the purest truly truest true
truth proven by the law of the Medes and Persians etc. etc. etc.
What balderdash. Even science now acknowledges that certainly at the quantum level, things are far from exhaustively predictable and precise.
In any case, I've never observed HYPER RATIONALISTS to have great qualities or quantities of intuition. I don't think they assess nuance very well.
They don't feel comfortable until all the science journals in lock-step fashion have verified some truth as straight from whatever magicsterical
papal body that science has deemed the purveyor of truth and the holy grail. And even then they'll still quibble. Sheesh.
OF COURSE there are disinfo agents.
Of course there are opportunists
Of course there are looneys.
there's a big bunch of simple common humans experience very extraordinary things trying to wrap their normal thinking and existence around
preposterous events and experiences. We ought to be able to at least afford to give them the benefit of the doubt, it seems to me.
Thanks for your kind reply.
