This has probably been linked to before, but let’s face it, he’s right.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Oh dear lord, I that’s my reaction.

It’s like Dave Barry said: “It’s not that I don’t think the government wouldn’t try to hide dead aliens and UFOs from us, it’s just that I don’t think they would succeed. Every time they try to pull off something in secret - like the Iran contra situation - they do it with all of the finese and subtly of an exploding cigar at a funeral”.

“It’s not that I don’t think that the government would try to hide dead aliens; it’s that I don’t think the government would succeed, since every time the government tries to do something secretly, as in the Iran-contra arms deal, it winds up displaying all the finesse and stealth of an exploding cigar at a state funeral.”

I like that quote. And it’s very true. The concept of world governments going 50 years with NONE of them cocking up and leaving detailed files about aliens on a train or in a taxi is truly science fiction.
