One of the comments to the article reads "[yeah,yeah,blah] pics or it didn't happen ...not trying to discredit the claim. but jeeze we hear these
stories all the time. we want to see some action now."
My first question, is this a claim, or an observation? As long as we treat it as a claim, we can chose to be lazy and perpetuate the mystery.
For me, I want to know why we hear these stories all the time, not pretend there is just one story. If it is a flaw in human character, or a
psychosis, hysteria, or a pre-conditioned archetype stress response, then we need to gain some insights around this with actual science. I am all
game for this as the conclusive outcome of real science. And if I had only heard this story, one time, of course I could easily dismiss it. My
skeptic black belt is as honed as anyone's. I do not need professional skeptics telling me what my conclusions are to be, sans effort, sans
I could sit in my basement as well, late into the night, holding a Budweiser in my shorts and a t-shirt eating cheetos and spewing crumbs all over the
monitor shouting 'fake' night after night, day after day. But for me that is not acceptable. That is pseudoscience.
I want to know why these people are saying these things.
