The burden of proof

A great video which shows the weakness and exploit in those who consider themselves beyond reproach (11 mins and 30 seconds)

Excellent video. This video applies especially to these bulletin board abductees who continuously talk about their abduction experience and their communications with extraterrestrials. The video points out how these people making persistent unsupported claims have their egos interwoven into the claim as a form of self-aggrandizement and notoriety.

Additionally these people develop a following and have their own little fan clubs. Eventually it gets to a point where the entire bulletin board becomes an abductee board and any suggestion to support the claim is considered blasphemy.

So much for these UFO bulletin boards (present exception noted); it seems like an inevitable progression and probably the reason so many of these UFO organizations and bbs ultimately fail.
