Calling someone a "charlatan" can actually be libelous or slanderous.
No you dont state anything of worth you just slander all the people on the show .
What possible worth is there to such a statement ?

There is a difference between lying (which implies that the film makers KNOW the truth and distort it) and making more of the evidence than the facts warrant.

I miss the days when you could read the National Enquirer at the supermarket counter and wonder if any of that crap was true? Maybe I was younger. More impressionable and gullible.
Then in retrospect you look at the "classic" cases you were so intrigued with long ago, and you begin to see the same pattern of baseless speculation and nonsense in them.

Checking facts, Sirius B was theorized around 1844. Checking facts, the Dogon theory wasn't "discovered" until the 1930s. During that time, the Dogon most likely had contact with westerners. Checking the facts, the Dogon worshipped the bright star Sirius.
So, to simple minded individual such as myself, a westerner could have told them about the theory of Sirius B and they began to include that into their oral traditions. To them, this change has always been and when a westerner in the 30's asked them about it, they simply stated that it has been handed down from generation to generation.
Oral traditions are not accurate, they tend to add and subtract with each telling. Though I do like the story, I believe it's just that, a story.
