Hey, at least he posted it without the usual breathless declaration that "disclosure is near!" and combativeness against the evil skeptics and naysayers. Points for having an open mind. Thanks for sharing the link, OP.


I say post nothing but positive comments for a while and compile a list. That will show brighter!

I have a hard time being a negative nancy with anyone who has a Spock avatar and I didn't read any of thread much less watch the video.

And again, by saying that I was convinced, you imply that I was sure he is credible, and was speaking the truth.

I have not said that you are convinced.

Need I say bring this in again?



by telling that it was rather convincing.


I never said it was convincing, you are the one who said it.

I liked the partially dismantled saucer in the video preview... and the Spock avatar.

No, I didn't say it was convincing. I said that to you, according to yourself, it appeared convincing.
Not only have you not watched the video that you posted,
not only have you not read what I've written to you,
but... you haven't even read your own reference to the definition of "Convincing"?


Convincing
: satisfying or assuring by argument or proof
2
: having power to convince of the truth, rightness, or reality of something : PLAUSIBLE




He sounds credible, but I'm not completely sure



I wouldn't completely discard this.


BECAUSE YOU THOUGHT SOMETHING WAS CONVINCING IN THE PERSON/STORY AND FOUND IT PLAUSIBLE.

Are you an idiot?
(and here comes the ad hominem comment).
But it's not, it's just a valid question.

I never said that. You made it up, it is your own words.

I said I was not completely sure, thus it did not completely assure me.

Please tell me, where does it say that if a person thinks something shouldn't be completely discarded, then the person is convinced? I would love to hear your extremely knowledgeable answer.

That's why I said "rather convincing" and not convinced.
That's why I said "assuring" and not "assured"
That's why I said plausible.

That's why I asked whether or not you're an idiot.

Definition of convinced:


Completely certain about something.


You were rather completely certain?

There is essentially no difference between "assuring" and "assure".

Why don't you look up (again) the definition of "convincing", which is more suitable to the discussion as the word in question is "convincing" and not "convinced".

There is almost difference between "convinced" and "convincing" other than "convinced" being a past tense of the latter term.

I thought the topic was "Whistleblower Speaks on Area 51" but it seems to have turned into a grammar lesson


On topic
Watching the video now .

It seems this is based on the ramblings of Dan Burisch which doesn't bode well .

" For Garner, Hamilton, Howe and any other persons who have lost their common sense: If this this guy was real, how would the secret government allow him to go bankrupt in public court? If he had a "PhD", do you really believe there would be no record of it?...Do you really believe Burisch (or Crain) really invented a cure for cancer and it was surpressed? After all, according to investigative journalist George Knapp, Burisch (or was it Crain...geeze, I get confused!) did call a press conference at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to announce his cure...when proven bogus, was tossed out of his department. " --Don Ecker, Director of Research for UFO Magazine in his column I Get the Last Word, UFO Magazine (vol.19, No.4).

Classic example of a person derailing a thread.

Wrong. Why don't you read the definition in your link?


Definition of CONVINCING
1
: satisfying or assuring by argument or proof
2
: having power to convince of the truth, rightness, or reality of something : plausible


ASSURING, PLAUSIBLE, NOT DEFINITE, WORK IN PROGRESS, LESSENING THE DOUBT.

You are correct. Every time I wanted him to explain why he thought what he did about the video before even watching it, he avoids the subject by expressing his ignorance towards the English language and any attempt to help him.

That doesn't show any difference between "convinced" and "convincing". You just gave me a definition of "convincing".

I think you meant to say "ignorance of the English language".

You are right, thanks. It's not my mother tongue, nor do I live in an English speaking country, but I'm learning.

Yes, because you were asking for it when I instead tried to explain to you what the word meant.
After that you asked for the definition.

See the pattern here?

You gave the definition of "convinced", now you should be able to spot the difference.
But it has already been demonstrated that you are unable to do so.

Ladies and or Gentlemen, Area 51 is real. Whether the person in the video is telling the historical truth is questionable. Nevertheless, reputable journalists like Jacobsen have covered the history.
