Im not saying to say it is "factual with no facts" but to not "debunk" it bc there are no facts. There IS a grey area and many of these artifacts are
in the bottom level of museums.
Oh? Which artifacts that are alleged to support the pseudoscientific woo of "researchers" such as Sitchin, Childress, Von Dainiken, Foerster, Hancock
or Dona, who I referenced in my earlier reply, are in the secret sub basements of which accredited museums? You cited Cayce in your query, you should
expect a little push back.
It is safe to say that if we debunk every artifact with no factual evidence then we could be missing out on many historical pieces that could
prove an ancient civilization.
Unless it is proven to be a fake, then and ONLY then can we "DEBUNK"
You're entirely missing the point here. You come off as if insisting that the rigors of the Scientific method be utilized and that actual facts are
used to support a given hypothesis is somehow an incorrect approach.You know...concepts such as a hypothesis being testable, repeatable and the ever
crucial component of falsifiability be in play as opposed to simply accepting something as an important part of history because it has yet to be
proven a hoax. That premise reeks of confirmation bias.
Again, in science, you do not prove a negative, you can only demonstrate evidence of a positive. Insisting on the above isn't analogous to debunking.
There shouldn't be a stigma placed on the insistence of quality standards being utilized in the search for truth.If the evidence is there to support
the supposition, then the truth will eventually work it's way free.
Recent examples of this are driving the final nail into 'Clovis First's' coffin because of the accumulation of data definitively proving that HSS were
in the A,Erica's prior to the oldest proven Clovis sites and another would be the acceptance of definitive admixture events between multiple members
of the genus Homo as a direct result of the work done by Dr. Francis Collins at the Human Genome Project and by Svante Paabo of the Max Planck
Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology and his Neanderthal Genome Project.
Geesh, good thing you guys are not working with historical artifacts, just keep it to the professionals
I know right? The way some of these big headed purveyors of ego strut around a message board, you'd think some of them actually have degrees in fields
related to this discussion!
