There again, this is a UFO list, so nuff Bearing in mind that this is a truely internaional list I don't think my request to know my standpoint was worth a guffaw because there are those who's standpoint differ from yours , and mine for that matter. However for your benefit I will state my argument from the "Innocent until proven Guilty" standpoint. I will post it in a few days when I have written this lengthy tome, however, if I have a truely valid argument will you concede??? >said. >>> (I assume because he has seen too many of "the best >>>case[s]," like Roswell, crumble when carefully studied.) >>from either standpoint (either/or its your preference) the >>arguments are already coloured/tainted by your initial beliefs. >This is sometimes true, but I think you can also start with no >beliefs at all and come down on one side or the other in the end >on Roswell.

Debunkers have been doing this for years and I have never heard you once complain about them doing it when it confirmed your particular beliefs. However I do not wish to become the victim of your wrath because I hav'nt the time for it. >>On an entirely different note I thought a Marlin was a >>fish not a beetle, >A marlinspike is neither, strange to say. On the other hand a >merlin is a bird. Suggest you use dixionary and stop worrying. diCTionary dear chap please do learn to spell. Yes I have three in the house, to which I refer often so that I do not misunderstand your final statements said in your signiture. Marlinspike (n) (Naut) Pointed iron tool used to seperate strands of wire or rope. See I got a new bigger dictionary. Merlin is also the name of the Great Wizard who assisted the very Great King Arthur on his many quests and carried him unto Avalon. >>or is it that you are admiting to being a lower life form >><very huge G> >Fairly low.
