In for the penney (?), I'm in for the pound... simplistic
rashness gives way to suspect motivations, artful obfuscation,
shallow dimensionlessness, and rank intellectual suicide in the
tradition Dr. Menzel.

I suspect that they are comforted in some way that would be
pathetic if it weren't so tragic. It _is_ a seriously silly
effort to investigate... If the Neanderthal had had a notion of
the extra terrestrial, they would have expected to communicate
with signal fires?

Which really goes a long way towards demonstrating the bald
duplicity of mainstream science, doesn't it, when a biased axe
grinfing confabulator like Shermer can get open handed
validation in "Scientific American" and Stanton Freidman can't?
