    Hey, you believe in UFO's and ghosts based on some random unknown pictures you got off the Internet.

    Exactly the sort of intellectual dishonesty which should be moderated.

    If they aren't "Random Pictures", then where are they from, hm? Can you vouch for the source and authenticity of them... and if so, how?

    The 15 videos I listed, with the exception of Snowwalker, which has since been discredited, are famous and vetted videos which can be confirmed as to their background and when and where they were taken and by whom. These are details I look into regarding every video and pic I post. Now, tell us the same about your unicorn pics. Background info? When and where they were taken? By whom? Are they vetted by analysts?

    Please provide evidence your photographs are vetted by a credible source before demanding others do the same (after all, I haven't seen any info on dates/times, who took them, or their being authenticated by forensic analysts)

    However, to humor you:

    That one is from National Geographic

    Pfft: "North" Korea, huh? That's just one of those made up states, like Cydonia or South Dakota.

    No..I'm not going post all the background info on those 15 videos just because you think I'm lying. I told you what I do. Now tell me. Do you do the same for your unicorn pics? Do you EVER look up the background info on any of your unicorn photos?

    From your own article:

    "The North Korean news agency does not have much of a reputation for factual accuracy. When the country’s former dictator Kim Jong Il died in December 2011, it reported a rock carving glowing brightly and ice near his presumed birthplace to have cracked “so loud, it seemed to shake the Heavens and the Earth” in mourning of the Dear Leader. While he was alive, Kim reportedlyinvented the hamburger, wrote 1,500 books in three years while at university, and shot eleven holes-in-one the first time he played golf (a feat verified by his 17 bodyguards).

    Looking back at those reports, unicorns don’t seem that far off."

    But more to the point, and as usual another example of you handling the truth rather lightly, many here have proved it and as a result your numerous holiday spells.
    See the real issue here besides your careless handling of the truths and your intellectual dishonesty, is the fact that you have nowhere else to spew your nonsense and carry on with your acting as you do on this forum.
    And further more, what you preach in your vain efforts to get people to come to your dark side, has been to no avail.
    It's just you and Tonto MR [river] and all your spewing and bullshit makes no difference to the true reality of things, the continuing advancement of science, to the betterment of all, along with peer review.
    You and Tonto are not even flies in the ointment. Nothing of which you fabricate and claim, will ever come to fruition, and will continually be totally and wholly invalidated by science.
    Live with it.

    On the other hand, we get to see MR claim that you can't believe random stuff you find on the Internet. (Which is like listening to Bernie Madoff claim you shouldn't scam people, or Kim Jong Un claim you should always tell the truth.) That's worth something just for comedic value alone.

    such a tempest in a teapot
    Personally, I find anything associated with bigfoot or unicorns or "one eyed one horned flying purple people eater(s)" to be of an eccentric philosophical approach to reality, often entertaining, but certainly not worthy of argument. Kinda like "GOD" you believe or you don't believe. Argument is pointless.

    If you believe, then can you be said to be intellectually dishonest?

    The problem arises when the thing-concept-belief is challenged and then the thing devolves into ego defenses and argument.
    And then, the rest of us dumb schmucks are stuck reading 3 pages of attack and counterattack and counterattack and counterattack and counterattack ... ad nauseam.

    jeez, just barf already and get it over with.

    Typical trollish smear of my character and integrity based on nothing whatsoever except that I don't back down in a debate. Oooo...burn the witch!

    And of course just another Pot, Kettle, Black episode, after your continuing insults and false claims about science in general.
