Sorry Jerry, but I do not understand your analogy. Were you
saying that when barstool philosophers (or any people) share the
same ideas as the "crazy, evil bastards", then these ideas are
bad ones? Or were you suggesting that people who share these
ideas makes them crazy, evil bastards too? Do you at least allow
for possiblity that crazy, evil bastards can have good ideas?
Who decides who are or are not crazy, evil bastards anyway?

As for Chuck Missler (co-author of the very interesting book on
UFOs/Aliens and producer of the 'Behold a Pale Horse' briefing
pack), his stuff is certainly better documented and worth
reading, although not much less controversial than Bill
Cooper's. During his visit to Toronto Chuck told me how we came
within minutes of the nuclear annihilation of two major cities
earlier this year in addition to many other very disturbing
things that have been suppressed or covered up for
understandable reasons.

What can you present to justify this opinion you have about Bill
Cooper? One can express similar opinions about Steven Greer, or
George Bush or the Pope (or whoever else comes to your mind) but
unless they can back it up with solid numbers or facts, why
should I consider what you say any different to what debunkers
and uninformed skeptics make against the so-called UFO believers
and the alleged conspiracy mongers all the time?

I have never met Bill Cooper or took most of what he had to say
seriously, but he did influence many researchers to ask more
questions and to dig deeper into claims regarding UFOs which
have brought us closer to the truth.
