You would be surprised. When Serp first arrived here, his hypothesis in regards to Serpo and Rick Doty's involvement was much different than it is today. If you review our long discussions in the private research area, you'll see that when enough undeniable evidence is placed in front of him, he'll modify his own hypothesis. But you're right, he's one tough cookie - but he plays Devil's Advocate like a true soldier...it's one reason I'm thankful he's part of the team - he forces us to push ourselves beyond the limit in terms of obtaining evidence. But trust me, once faced with overwhelming evidence - he'll concede. It takes a hell of a lot of work...lol....but he'll concede. (Hey Serp, how do you like being discussed in 3rd person? lol)
I believe if any progress can be made at this point the key is identifying what assumptions have been made (or we’ve been led to believe as the case may be) and then systematically reevaluating those assumptions and rejecting them as necessary in order to gain new insight.
Absolutely. In fact - if there are an overwhelming number of statements made by Blue Book Investigators that can be shown by the evidence to be inaccurate or flat-out untrue, then I think it places enough doubt on their conclusions to provide the basis for many of their assumptions to be rejected, as you've described. I was suprised by the year claimed that the Lunar Lander was "operational"...do you know more?
And please take your time. Most here have day jobs, so don't sacrifice that simply for this analysis. Almost everyone who works in researching the field of paranormal and holds day jobs simply do their work when they have the time - usually weekends. So take your time - there's no rush.
Speaking of Paranormal research - I was watching the show "Ghosthunters", these two guys who run TAPS, they collect data on haunted places and do audio/video, EMF, Gamma, and other methods of analysis. Well last night they showed what they do for "day-jobs". They're both Roto-Rooter plumbers. For those who are serious about studying the field of the paranormal using science...there's not much of a living to be made in it. It's simply a passionate belief in truth.
