And even if so, you never know what part may be true. Oh wait you must be onbe of those know it all.
I'm not a know-it-all but, I did graduate from a 4 year university and have a good grasp of physics & science. When I listened and read the so-called alien interview, it was filled with claims that went against our conventional understanding of basic science. Example, the alien's inability to take humans on his ship, because we breathe oxygen. Even our 1960's technological limitations did not keep us from addressing that minor issue. That's not even going into the many other problems in logic the story contains. "Spirit"entities who do not need bodies BUT...choose to inhabit bodies and limit themselves by having to travel in spaceships. To not question the inconsistencies and flawed logic is insane.
And to address your misunderstanding of what I meant in my comments about spirituality....one thing is being a responsible, thoughtful human being...another is to believe in pseudo-religious new age nonsense based in fantasy and not on fact. If you want a good laugh, go listen to Deepak Chopra talk about Quantum Physics...the guy has NO IDEA what he is talking about and only an uneducated dolt thinks otherwise. Materialism is only a bad thing if practiced by individual with malicious intent. Otherwise, it has driven progress in both science and technology. The concept of bettering one's own situation financially and mentally, can be rewarding and lead to a successful & very happy life....tyvm.
