GUEST,Musket BS: I Love this Idea (257* d) RE: BS: I Love this Idea 18 Mar 16

Go on, I'll fall for it.

Which 20% is true?

Venus doing a flyby of the earth in biblical times? It's "comet trail" releasing hydrocarbons that fell as carbohydrates, thus manna from heaven? The convenient thousand year gaps in history suddenly becoming the same week?

The problem with believing IN rather than accepting (believing?) is that our minds play tricks on us, I think therefore I am. Hence disturbed people who claim to have seen UFOs rarely leave it at that. They usually get dragged up on tractor beams and their minds probed for good measure. Shadows become ghosts, the ball zooming into the back of the Liverpool net becomes ball lightning (😎) and medieval translations of ancient fairy stories start making sense.

A bit of a bugger, the brain. You can only see peripheral vision in monochrome but your brain colours it in to match main vision. It doesn't let us dwell too much on our mortality and in a bizarre double twist, allows a few nutters to think that the brains of men whose parents were born in Pakistan are mentally hard wired to be rapists. No mean feat for evolution, considering Pakistan itself is less than 70 years old..,,
