According to Suzanne Taylor the crop circle phenomena is under attack! Shock! Horror! And who are these dark forces doing the attacking? Well generally it’s people trying to bring a bit of objectivity to the nonsense. Now Suzanne, who is being sued by researcher Steve Bassett, has a lot of unfounded nonsense to say about far too many people, and sadly Suzanne’s loyal followers do not get to see the other side of the story. So here at this link to my other blog are some good links to people who are bringing the objectivity that is so desperately needed.
Suzanne is desperately trying to get out of the lawsuit that Steve Bassett is pursuing. She has gone to such lengths as organising an on-line petition, she was due to go onto an internet radio show to discuss the case (which many are seeing as an attempt to pressure or shame Steve into dropping his case, it also brings into mind what legal advice she is receiving as her discussing the alleged details on air is probably not a good approach prior to any court case) but technical problems prevented this and she is using her website and facebook connections to garner support. I think Suzanne should save her energy and her lawyer should utter those four words that resolve most legal arguments – Out of court settlement.
Nick Pope looking all pensive and philosophical with a radio telescope a la ‘Contact’…
Nick Pope seems to have been making very un-Nick Pope like comments. His usually fence-sitting is gone as this Daily Mail article shows. When I first read this I suspected he was being mis-quoted or his comments taken out of context. But apparently Nick stands by what he said. So prepare for alien invasion, or false flag scenarios or a soon to be published Nick Pope book. Cynical? Moi?
As previously reported, Robbert Van Der Broeke has just released a video claiming to show contact with two of crop circles legendary names. Both of whom are dead. This isn’t the first time Robert has courted controversy with his claims of psychic abilities, here is an extensive look at his career and how he has failed to convince the world of his abilities…(but has fooled some researchers who should know better)
As the crop circle season begins to get into full swing, crop circle fraudster Robbert Van Der Broeke has pushed his trickery to new levels, now claiming to have captured spirit images of Pat Delgado and Dave Chorley. This story will be pinging around the internet and there will be those taken in by his fakery, but this video nicely uncovers the trickery…
A fake video from the hacking group Anonymous has been doing the rounds recently. This video claims that Anonymous will reveal to the world that they have information taken from NASA that proves the existence of UFOs/Aliens. I would give you link but I believe I’ll save you a few minutes of your precious life just by telling you that Anonymous have come forward to discredit the video and not providing you the link to the video.
In response to my recent FOIA applications regarding specific documents regarding the Cobra Mist facility, the MoD claims not to have the documents to which I referred, but suggested that the MoD Scientific and Technical people have lots of information on Cobra Mist and to hunt for it there, providing it doesn’t go over the fee threshold for making FOIA requests (which is probably would). Such is life…
Crowdsourcing is very ‘in’ at the moment. Basically crowdsourcing is where groups of people get together to find a solution to a particular problem, usually on-line. Now SETI are crowdsourcing in their attempt to find ET. Basically you download some software which constantly streams the radio signals to your home computer, and hopefully you can hear something unusual which might turn out to be radio signals from ET.
Now, a few issues come to mind for me. SETI hava done this previously. Before, SETI used a downloadable screensaver which helped process their data while your computer wasn’t so busy. So, this is a tweek to a previous idea, but does anyone really know what they are listening for? I still have issues with the desire for SETI just to focus on radio signals. Terence McKenna put it more to point when he said, “To search expectantly for a radio signal from an extraterrestrial source is probably as culture bound a presumption as to search the galaxy for a good Italian restaurant.”
