GUEST,Sledge BS: Hoax uncovered (32) RE: BS: Hoax uncovered 09 Nov 01


Ye Gods,

I didn't expect barbs to fly when I put up the item at the top of the list, my intention was to update folks on an item that intrigued me. It really would be something if Vikings had trailed across North America but for now we have one fake and a stone of unknown origins.

LH. The little green men thing was just a throw away comment, not meant to malign the serious student of these things. However as I put in another chat group:

"Another line of thought on unkowns, in the ancient world or medieval period unkown events were blamed on spirits and the devil, if some one was considered to be part of the cause and in league with said spirits they got burnt, problem solved. Nowadays we are much more sophisicated and we don't generally burn people anymore. When we see a problem or event that defies our current level of knowledge however too many people go strait for the conspiricy theory or the little green men cop out, its part of the same reaction as ancient times, we invent a boogie man to take the the blame"

Besides whatever amount of ridicule is aimed at the subject it's not going to go away, it has its own fincial momentum, conferances, magazines, books, endless documentaries, even if the level of sightings have dropped since the cold war finished.

Cheers

Sledge
