Does that help you understand why some folks might think you're a "wackjob"?

pigs, I think the point they are trying to make is that it is absolutely and utterly pointless to machine gun a lengthy list of completely unsupported statements, like you just did. Do you seriously regard each item you have 'presented' there, as proven, simply because you (or some website) says so? What exactly is your training or background in any of the requisite sciences, or engineering disciplines? Now don't get me wrong, i think there's some pretty weird stuff in amongst 911, and you might have listed a gem or two amongst that, but my eyes glazed over after reading the first 2 lines (both of which are so wrong at the most fundamental level it's not funny)...

*I* have little pink fairies at the bottom of my garden!
And I can produce hundreds more pointless statements, equally valid - and I have supported that claim just as well as you have... Do you follow the analogy?

Thing is, there are fantasies, there are conspiracy theories, there is fiction, there are lunatics, there are people who think they know it all, there are those who need no proof, there are those who are wide eyed and gullible or completely naive... and there is.. reality.

But this probably isn't the best place for folk who are not genuinely, properly seeking reality. OK, I'm fairly new here, so others may correct me, but what seems to happen here is that each claim is looked at in some detail, properly dissected, examined.. and if a *real* conclusion can be made, it is.. That's how science works, and how things get achieved.

So what happens if you proffer a huge list like you just did? Well, an annoyingly skeptical person like me, seeking reality, will point out that each item not only needs to be looked at PROPERLY, it needs to be couched in logical, definable, testable terms. And no one in their right mind is going to take them all on simultaneously (is that why you posted so many?) So I would ask you this - PICK ONE. Your very favourite - one that you know a lot about, and can discuss with authority. Start a new thread about it, in the appropriate forum, after checking that it hasn't already been covered.

Good luck.

Oh, and welcome! You may think I am being sarcastic, but not at all - I love decent debates with folk who have wild ideas, as long as they will debate them sensibly, have open minds, are willing to learn, and will admit when they are wrong. I love being wrong - I learn stuff!!! (I just wish it happened more often :lol: )

You seem to infer a lot from what people type don't you?

pigswillfly wrote:The intital wackjob post by m0r is totally out of context too, did anyone read that ufomania thread?


For example could you quote me where I referred, inferred or deferred you as a whackjob in my post?

Furthermore why do you think no one read the Ufomania thread?

It's just there is nothing worth commenting on about it.

You crave attention and without any natural ability to garner it you act up to the masses - but we don't care. Not here.

f---- off.

Telling another member to "f---- off" is not how we do things around here. Kindly keep it civil.

You might need to define "loose" and "member" to me for me to answer that honestly.

I've been given my lumps for language and I hope that my infarction sends antibodies throughout the forum to keep such retaliations from occurring too often from anyone because inane goading without the decency to provide proof of extensive claims made elsewhere are brought here as fact whilst inference is made to anyone who doesn't whole-heartedly agree without question.

I think that's what you missed if that answers half your quoted post :)

Cheers mate! Gathering from AD's post, I can only imagine that the claims from pigs were flimsy and far-out

Darn! :(

And here I came into this thread hoping to find some "hardcore action". I petition this thread be re-named to something more appropriate: Flying Pig Claims? :D
