    Rey Hernandez, Scientific Study of ET Contact and the Paranormal |412|

    Just a couple quick thoughts about Rey Hernandez after listening to the show: Did his study take into account any known reluctance to report negative experiences on the part of people who have them? I haven't read the report but I know this kind of bias happens regarding negative NDEs so is it...

    This is one of the things I love about the subject matter on Skeptiko: we start off discussing an experience centered around UFOs and the conversation meanders tangentially to the question of whether or not a river has a sense of its own existence! What complicates the question for me is the...

    Also - if you can't step into the same river twice can the same river sue you twice? :)

    This quote from the article in The Guardian summed it up nicely for me: “We can trace our genealogy to the origins of the universe,” said Albert. “And therefore rather than us being masters of the natural world, we are part of it. We want to live like that as our starting point. And that is not...

    I understand that you want to ignore me and that's fine. In the interest of extending an olive branch, however late, I wanted to let you know that I read your post about the deep state and thought it was well reasoned.

    Ok. I don't mind insults up to a certain point but making false accusations about me and my behavior on these forums is another matter altogether so let me be clear: At no time have I ever behaved in these forums in the way you've suggested. I have never had nor created any account other than...

    Let me see if I have this right. After categorizing me as a doltish Pollyanna exhibiting the arrogations characteristic of a teenager who wants someone to do the work for them while they engage in amateurish bullshit, you want me to converse with you like an adult? Look, I honestly don't bear...

    You made an extraordinary claim and refuse to provide any information that could verify it. How is that not relevant to our discussion? One of the definitions of epistemology is: the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion. You may very well have the experience you...

    Prior to being substantiated it was just another conspiracy theory.

    Please clarify. Do you possess direct and deep knowledge of this subject as a result of working directly with SCI in an official capacity? If so I would ask for anything that could establish your claim as fact since we live in a day and age where anyone can jump online and make any claim. I'm...

    I would agree with you if they always remained theories but history has unfortunately shown that this is not always the case. MK Ultra is one of the more insidious projects that come to mind(pun intended!).

    The problem with this statement is that you put yourself in the difficult position of having to prove a negative. The entirety of the 'classic SCI structure' is an unknown, even to people within it. This is by design. Access to different projects requires different security clearances and the...

    Thanks. It's funny but I was going to preface logical fallacy with the word 'potential' in my initial draft. What I meant was that I take issue with statements that aren't falsifiable. In this case if anyone was what we're calling a "key person in intelligence" and they DID have access to...

    This may be true but there's a logical fallacy with the reasoning: if none of us is a "key person in intelligence work" how could we hope to confirm any of the assertions being made?
