I’m so glad that CNN took a look at the nonsense of the Mayan Calendar Doomsday Dimwits. Someone came up with the theory that in 2012 some event of magnitude that equates the alarm of doomsday sayers is to occur. How did they figure out this prophetic preposterousness? ( is that a word? ) They got the idea from the now dead Mayan civilization’s calendars.
Now one would think, why consult the prophesies of a culture that is extinct? Wouldn’t that invalidate that their abilities to foresee the future didn’t freakin’ work?
Where are the Mayan’s now if they were such smarty pants? I’ll tell you where, they live across the street trying to refinance their mortgages, they’re on the 101 freeway here in Los Angeles trying to get to work on time, they’re hanging out at the local Starbucks trying to get to the blueberry oatmeal bars before the cops do. That’s where the Mayans are now. Do you see them preparing for doom? Fleeing en masse to the safety of the mountains?
Nope. I wonder why????
This 2012 bullsnot is another attempt by the irresponsible people in the paranormal community to drum up business, books, movies, etc. It’s shameful and after our last wave of doomsday disasters like the Hale-Bopp Comet, 1999, 2000, 2001 ( notice how these doomsday years just come and go without a whimper? ) you would figure we humans would get it by now, there is no doomsday!
The closest mankind has come to utter destruction was during the infamous “Heidi” game in the 1960’s where a football game’s last few seconds was interrupted in order to show the film “Heidi” on tv. Now that was an upheaval for sure!
To quote one of the scientists in the article thus cited is David Stuart the Director of the Mesoamerica Center at the University of Texas at Austin,
“There’s going to be a whole generation of people who, when they think of the Maya, think of 2012, and to me that’s just criminal,” said David Stuart, director of the Mesoamerica Center at the University of Texas at Austin.
“There is no serious scholar who puts any stock in the idea that the Maya said anything meaningful about 2012.”
So don’t fall for this malarky folks. We have enough problems with crime and disease that we don’t need supernatural spam.
First of all whenever some news regarding UFOs appears in the mainstream press and that news looks solid, you can bet just afterwards a debunking scam will occur. The latest are the ‘chinese lantern’ explanations because weather balloons have played out.
In this case we have two new stories of interest from the UFO beleaguered Great Britain. UFOs are all over the place in G.B. and of course our pal Nick Pope is on top of things. He’ll sort it all out and we’ll get a stable perspective soon. First off is Prime Minister candidate David Cameron who was asked about the UFO issue during a news event and he said,
“But I think we should be a open as possible, so I would be quite happy to give you a guarantee that if I became prime minister I would always be entirely open and frank about these things.”
Now that was ballsy for sure because no candidate in the U.S. would say that because the press would tear him or her apart. At least Cameron has the courage to be open and up front about it without fear of ridicule. That says something positive about his character. He won’t hide, he won’t cower, he won’t back down. We need more people like him in this world.
In this story it’s about a crop circle that was discovered next to a wind turbine and that sure has stirred up the hackles of UFOlogists in Great Britain too. A week or so ago a wind turbine was damaged by what some theorize was a UFO. Now we see this turbine with a crop circle next to it. Is the crop circle the product of pranksters or those little balls of light that people report in the proximity of such phenomena. We’ll find out as the mystery unravels.
Right now a bunch of UFOlogists are shakin’ in their little blue shorties because I’m making this post. Pardon the legendary Stan Lee for the above.
After the decades I’ve spent in UFOlogy and more intensely around other UFOlogists the past 12 years it stands to say it can be a racket. Yes there are some UFOlogists are far more dangerous than anything from another world. The strangest truth inside the UFO phenom is one that is so bizarre and revealing that it would upset the way we deal with reality. Our physicists and scientists don’t know everything there is about everything but don’t remind them of that or they’ll go ape. They have to be right or of course you’re ‘absurd’ or ‘ridiculous’. For decades we’ve been told our universe is such and such old and such and such big and lo and behold we find out it’s bigger and older. Don’t remind them that they were off by a few trillion years.
You’ve got a group in UFOlogy to whom if you introduce any other theory to ONE of the sources of UFOs and that theory doesn’t support the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis, they will go ballistic. These people I steer clear of. A hard head makes a soft behind the old folks say.
So I broke from the ET gang and those in the know, know I’m on that hot trail and their game is up. You’re about to find out that you’re far more interesting a being than just a primate with an overactive imagination. The enemy doesn’t want you to know that though because then they can’t control you.
Take a look at this movie clip from the sci fi classic film “Forbidden Planet”. If you haven’t seen the movie go get it on DVD. It was made in the 1950s but the story is relevant even today.
As you can see here in this video, live during Wolf Blitzer’s broadcast on CNN during the Obama inauguration, an object flies past the camera as it’s taking an exterior shot of the locale there in Washington D.C.. The object whizzes past the camera in a blur and draws attention to itself. I won’t say what it looks like to me but it doesn’t look like something that warrants the typical UFO tag. So here is the video fo ryou to look at.
I was updating this feature and realized that during the election, Obama’s rally featuring Bruce Springsteen also had a claim of the appearance of a UFO. I wrote about it on this blog. Here’s the story, pic, and video.
Well as reported earlier, NASA has released it’s newest data regarding the recording of methane gas emissions on Mars.
According to NASA there are only two known sources of these emissions, life and/or geochemical.
Basically life as we know it farts and craps. This releases methane gas. Ever drive past a cattle farm? That smell is a combination of methane and other gases. Mars may be far away but it’s still got a funk to it.
There’s also the possibility of still active geochemical activity on the red planet. Only extensive on the ground testing will determine which since the only two craft sent to make preliminary testing mysteriously crashed a few years ago.
Chalk up another extraterrestrial life story up to what I refer to as “The Sisyphus Effect”. Scour this blog for more on that, but basically it’s my observation that anything pointing to the extraterrestrial hypothesis in UFOlogy is inevitably just out of reach, always inconclusive, always a bridesmaid, never a bride much like the doomed Greek mythological character Sisyphus.
So it will be a couple of decades until we find out what cause the gasses on Mars and that will keep the space flight pros busy and employed until then.
Well here’s something you don’t expect every day, NASA actually openly discussing the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Sure they’re talking underground bugs on Mars that are farting their way into the science books by being the source of the methane content of the Mars atmosphere.
Let’s see how the historic news is treated in the press and then see what next step our scientists will make to get samples of these critters, use an electron microscope to show us scary pictures.
Maybe someone will have some in a jar or thing like the Sea Monkeys.
I remember as a little kid the excitement started by two television shows regarding invasions from outer space. One was the classic “The Twilight Zone” created by Rod Serling and it’s episode “To Serve Man”. That episode was so scary people were under the jug for weeks. That means they had an extra jolt of alcohol to soothe their nerves. The second tv episode was a take on that Twilight Zone episode and it appeared on the tv classic show “The Dick Van Dyke Show”. In this episode titled “It May Look Like A Walnut”, comedy writer Rob Petrie, played by star Dick Van Dyke encounters what he thinks is a practical joke played on him by his wife Laura played by Mary Tyler Moore. It guest stars the legendary showman Danny Thomas which gives it a double dose of must-see. Don’t watch if you’re allergic to walnuts!
I bring up this episode because it shows how the imagination can run away with oneself. The UFO field is still mysterious after 60 years of analysis and that says more about ourselves than the various theories and discoveries.
