6291Re: [Debunking Debunkers] Re: Crop Circles---Has Anyone Done the Math?
- Dec 18, 2007Actually what it is is convenient. Saying "the Army" secured a given area puts a patina of authenticity to a claim that can be plausible any way the claim works, and becomes irrefutable when there is no record of "the Army" ever doing any such thing. If there really is no evidence, a "cover-up" can be claimed. If the evidence is ever iron-clad bullet-proof and undeniable, then "the Army" gets the credit for it. But since there are few military organizations that can keep anything secret for long, this kind of a claim is mostly made by persons who never wore the uniform.Since there has been, as OE states, no irrefutable evidence of the extraterrestrial origins of crop circles a "cover-up" can be claimed. Since, further, there have been several demonstrations of just how these displays are made that the ET-wanters can simply dismiss as either lying or deluded, we can also state that these objects are of uncertain origin when we deny that there is or even can be any evidence to the contrary.For those who see ancient (and contemporary) astronauts in large ground designs such as Nazca, perhaps they can also guide us in understanding why so many Medival cathedrals were made in the sign of a cross that can only be seen from altitude centuries before man first took flight. Were the faithful trying to send messages of welcome that only God could see? Or perhaps they were looking for ancient Christians from Mars?Either way, you believe what you want to believe, and evidence can do nothing to refute faith. It's trying to teach pigs to sing: They may fool the stone deaf, but the pig just won't join the choir._________________________________

I think this is only true if you go into the issue with your mind
already made up. If you already believe that some strange force
creates crop circles than it becomes easy to manufacture evidence.
Was it possible that Colin or someone in "the Army" might have
circumvented the test? Security is only as good as the people setting
it. "Some guys from the Army" doesn't sound too reliable to me.
