    So you question my argument based on a book you have not read; and worse you defend him ; based on a book you have not read or ever will.

    Either your a robot or you are becoming one.

    I see also that James has supported Dywyddyr also.

    Obviously it appears that while I have not read the book, other more reputable members have certainly outlined the book quite admirably and truthfully...it appears.

    I question your judgement and honesty, yes.

    Perhaps the robot analogy is more aptly applied to yourself?
    You know, In your vain emotional efforts to support anything and everything not validated by logical science and the scientific methods...the likes of supernatural nonsense, how quick you are to support cranks and conspiracy artists based on nothing more than rumour and innuendo, and how quick you are to claim UFO sightings as of Alien origins, without any evidence.....Yet I see you quickly hop in to try and limit and deride the exciting, wonderful discovery of gravitational waves and BH confirmation.
    Yes, put me down as supporting James and Dywyddyr for their general more sensible and logical approach to the world we live in and the nature of the book in question..

    Getting back on track, I would again emphasise the above book as a must for anyone interested in actual scientific research and data and happenings from the late 19th century with Curie, Rhoentgen, and Bequeral, through to early 20th century giants such as Einstein, Bohr, Szillard, Fermi and through to the likes of Feynman.
    Cannot recommend it highly enough.

    Two more that are excellent accounts of present day cosmology are Kip Thorne's BH's and Time Warps, and another called "Gravity's Fatal Attraction" by Sir Martin Rees and Mitch Begalman.
    Superforce by Paul Davis and also "The First Three Minutes" by Stephen Weinberg are all interesting.

    Anyway river, it appears you want to play childish games, so I'll leave your destroyed intellect and your rights to an opinion/s to yourself
    Have fun!

    I searched the Google for the book that river is reading, and I could find no mention of ufos or aliens. Seems like if that was a central theme there would have been mention of it. In fact, I kind of want to read it now.

    Reputations are reputations. I certainly know where my thoughts on the likelyhood of truth lays.

    I guess we need someone to post a picture of the text that discusses alien visitation.

    river:

    Are you using the 1995 edition published by Three Rivers Press?

    That's the one Dywyddyr quoted from.

    Yes

    Copy right © 1995 by Graham Hancock

    With no updated editions mentioned AT ALL. Hence why I can not find anything that Dywyddyr is referencing AT ALL ; at these pages Dywyddyr lists on his post # 563

    No response from me because I haven't logged in for a while.

    Harrison isn't mentioned until page 37.

    The word "stranger" doesn't appear until page 41.
    The SECTION entitled "The Bearded Stranger" begins in Part II on page 52.

    ISBN 0-517-88729-0 15.

    Screenshot: take a look at the final paragraph and the page number.

    Since when are knuckle-dragging hominids incapable of advanced intellectual tasks like map-making?
