A Blog Visitor's Comments

Commenting on the post, "Debunking Neil deGrasse Tyson on UFOs," they write:
Tyson to me looks part of the disinfo crowd. He's cited Shermer as someone making a good argument. He's intelligent enough to recognise the errors in reasoning, including the false premise suppositions, used by Shermer to understand his arguments do not follow sound methodology and reasoning. I consider Tyson a heinous propagandist.

That 'statement' of his posted there has so many holes in it. He posits a ridiculous situation where (his scenario) the victims of an abduction, outwit their captors, who in many cases can reportedly read minds, to steel items from their vehicle?

This kind of demand of proof is a straw man argument. It's used to obfuscate all the other evidence of landing traces, pictures, and radar-visual encounters that indicate real phenomena (natural or ET) are active around our planet.

He further needs to consider if the ET hypothesis is true (which is assumed in his statement) that the visitors may not want overt contact with our species - just as human scientists bag and tag less cognizant animals, before releasing them back into the environment.

When it comes to the idea of proof he needs to look those Stanton Friedman interview clips where he talks about four kinds of scientific proofs where you can collect data - controlled experiments, regular natural events (like eclipses), random but period events (like earthquakes), and then the actions of intelligent beings (where you cannot predict things but rather make measurements after the fact - like collecting data on car crashes etc)
I dislike Dr Tyson ...
