But you are postulating that our Earth brethern have done just that.
I am going no further with this sillyness, Ed because whatever
argument you use can be turned back against your own theory. For
everysentence you use montremes in i can say but there is no
evidence of that, that it is speculation on your part. Your
theory is faith based, without a shred of evidence to support it
and which you will support to the end evan as you have supported
the validity of the AA despite being told by the very creator of
same that it is a hoax.

I think you and others who have faith in the ETH have

Science doesn't say any such thing. You are saying that and your
credibility is quite low.

Oh, I don't think you have lost faith, your egocentric view of
the Earth as the only bastion of life in a universe is strongly
linked to an older faith basedidea, religion.

So you watched a hoaxed film of a plastic dummy having its sheep
brain removed and now you are convinced of your theory.
You can't even come to grips with the faked AA film and you are
trying convince me and others that we are way off base in the
possibility of the ETH?

Frankly, yes I do. We are the only ones there is proof of. There
have definitly been different civilizations that rose and fell
over the last 10,000 years and I suspect 2 or 3 times that length
of time if not more, but they were still human civilizations.

It's called constant acceleration, Ed. Look it up. Stan Friedman
worked on nuclear technology rockets [back in the late 60s early
70s] which I believe he said were 10,000 times more powerful
than the Saturn rocket. Put that technology into space and then
power up at the rate of one constant G of acceleration and you
will eventually get to close to the speed of light.

You use that unsuppotable line over and over Ed. There is not a
grain of evidence to validate the AA film either but you embrace
it wholeheartedly in your headlong rush to incredibility. that
any species

Yeah that's just more second rate sci-fi nonsense. It's a
plotline used over and over , Ed, like the Earthlings are too
dangerouse to let into space nonsense.

Time will tell.

Read it again and you will see how it probably worked, not the
silly one little craft theory flying from one planet 50 light
years away to check up on us.

A technology that has spread through the cosmos is not going to
have trouble with our little pop-guns and don't seem to.

Uh-uh, not faith with me. That's a slippery slope like religion.
One shred of evidence to deny the numbers and the probability of
other life and intelligent life in our galaxy and the universe
beond and I'm out of there. I don't hang onto anything on faith.
I don't revere.

Believe what, probabilities? The odds? I don't believe it, I
don't have a ETH bible, I just can't help thinking that the odds
are in the favor of other life in the universe

Yeah, why? I asked this before but you just said, I don't know
why they do this, they just do. They still like to stick probs
up anuses after watching us grow over the last 3-10 million
years but you don't know why. Some lkind of character flaw with

That's pretty weak, Ed.

Ed Fouche made up the TR-3b nonsense. There is no existing line
of technology to support it. And despite the fact that there are
dozens of triangular-shaped aircraft in the world today none of
them is in the one or two mile wide catagory of the Pheonix
claims. You seem pretty ignorant of the descriptions of what
went on at around 8pm that evening and even more so about
aviation technology. And supporting the TR-3b nonsense also
shows your ignorance of the air regs governing the airspace and
the air traffic control system over and surrounding Phoenix [Sky
Harbor] as well which apparently, you think, can be violated at
will by the US Air Force regardless of how many flights are
placed in harms way.

By whom, your reptilian, bipedal creatures from Earth's past?

Yeah remember that the next time you go to the hospital.

There's your flawed belief system kicking in again Ed. Ed Fouche
said there was a TR-3b and you swallowed it hook, line and
sinker... just like the AA hoax. You use it like it's fact.
