One thing I see...especially here...are opinions posted by members that read a few books the last 4-5 years and watched some YouTube videos....and
then throws out their "opinions". Let me explain further.
Picking just one topic: UFO-ALIENS. 1st, to begin with, UFO's dont always mean to represent flying saucers-spaceships...only objects-flying that are
unidentified....birds, leafs etc.
ALIENS doesnt absolutely refer to people only from other planets. You could be from Mexico.
Both these words are thrown around as absolutes. They are not.
I have read books on religions and UFOS since it become fashionable for the hippie movement in the 1960s. I have read hundreds of books on these
subjects from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, MIllenium, and the next decade 2010 and on.
So when someone makes their points based on several years of YouTube, and a few popular books of recent release...my only problem with that...and
those posts like "My theory of UFO's is..." I can surmise that its based on mostly recent and not-so-reliable info, videos and books. Believe me, I
Just last week, a poster said to me "Yeah? Well, Ive been reading (on that subject) for FIVE years!" My response?
"I have been reading on this subject for 47 FORTY SEVEN years".
I believe crediblity lies in your research, your cross-referencing over time, watching some documentaries, films and videos and even radio shows..over
a LONG time. That amount a info gives you and your opinions validation based on research both good and bad, in abudance, over time.
So, your credibility goes up because of your lengthy research...and your opinion counts. Bias is still possible even after a lifetime of study on a
subject or subjects. BUT THATS OK. You have that bias based on long, long term and a variety of study of a particular subject. THATS OK TO BE YOUR
So in the end, after the research over time on all that you can find good and bad on a subject, every book, docmnt, etc written ...and what you can
get your hands on...ALLOWS your bias to be taken as a valid opinion based on your long research. So you can be biased and you can be not-credible.
But, I dont think you are either.
Read everything you can....PEACE
