First of all, why so many exclamation marks in the thread's title (seven of them, to be precise)? Are you tryin' to scare the crap out of us? Or is
you who is really, REALLY scared?
Second... a while ago I was being asked by a friend "Do you believe in ghosts?" and my answer was "I did never see one" because I have no
scientific, esoteric or paranormal expertise to give an affirmative or negative answer; I also don't have evidence which would help me forming a
belief concerning this matter. So, I prefer to treat these subjects with a bit of caution... what if they DO exist and, being pissed off royally
because I'm an unbeliever, they will haunt me?
Why I put up this ghost thing... well, because beyond the huge fun I have reading these "Nibiru-type" threads, with lots of "undeniable proofs"
and amateur-ish "analysis" by applying some Photoshop filters (and of course, the real astronomers are using the same filters, yeah, sure) I NEVER -
and I mean NEVER - did see a real professional popping in and making a pertinent and airtight analysis of these so-called events. And I have a real
problem with that.
Now, I am really grateful for the Internet - after all, I earn my money with it - and while I admit its huge contribution to the evolution of mankind,
I cannot refrain myself from seeing it as a big, foggy environment, where everyone is an expert after reading Wikipedia or god knows what else. In the
meantime, the real experts are behind the front line, doing real work, which we may not be aware of. I would like to see, for once, one of them on
ATS, presenting some rock-solid credentials (not like "I-am-a-Scientist-and-I-can-answer-any-of-your-questions") and, once and for all, debunk this
kind of thread, even by this all the fun will go away. I can take that risk.
So, is there anyone who have the real knowledge?
