David Greer, MD,:
“Director of Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI)” — sounds a lot like, but is not the same as SETI. This is almost as annoying as 911 Truthers calling themselves skeptics.
The opening line is about the “perfect balance” of nature. Actually, don’t things in nature frequently wildly oscillate (I’m thinking of over-runs in various insect and vermin populations)? Not a good start.
He just said that the universe is making Torroid (i.e. doughnut) shapes everywhere. On behalf of Homer Simpson: Mmmmm…forbidden doughnut….
Crop Circles: Seriously?!
“The electromagnetic field…is often magnetically charged.”
Crop circles are round and a torus is also round. I guess that proves it!
I’m reminded of a line from the movie Ghostbusters (said sarcastically): “You’re right, Egon. No human being could stack books like this!”
Jack Kasher, Ph.D.:
I found this post on the Skeptic Friends Network from Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer, in 2001:
“Jack Kasher is actually rather difficult to track down on the web; I’ve tried. Mostly you find him on UFO sites with a link to buy his video showing Space Shuttle footage of a UFO being shot down. Instead, do a search on sts-48 (which was the Shuttle mission in question) and James Oberg, who has debunked Kasher numerous times. Ron Parise has also debunked Kasher on Michael Shermer’s show “Exploring the Unknown”. Parise is a Shuttle astronaut, having flown twice, as well as a professional astronomer.
“Kasher says he is a professor at the Univeristy of Nebraska, but usually doesn’t mention he’s at the Omaha campus, not the main one at Lincoln. He is not really affiliated with the main physics department there, as far as I have been able to determine.”
“Many scientists now believe Testla was accessing what would now call free energy.”
This is so bad it’s not even wrong. If true, it would mean that accessing “free energy” via a Testla coil requires massive amounts of electricity. Doesn’t sound very “free” to me!
In keeping with a recent Cracked.com article that Dave B posted on Facebook, it is funny when one fringe group takes up arms against a different fringe group. LMAO!
“THRIVE” MOVIE: DON’T FALL FOR IT!
