RE: That Damn Bigfoot Thing
Your point is no point at all when you take the two occurrences completely out of context and say they are now somehow the same.

I am drawing a comparison of two separate occurrences.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that whatsoever.

Edited for Occam's Razor:

Occam's Razor Application:

12 persons highly experienced with aircraft claim to have seen a type of aircraft they could not identify.

a) They seen an aircraft they could not identify.
b) It was swamp gas.
c) It was mass hallucination.
d) It was a weather phenomenon.
e) They all lied.
f) It was not an aircraft.

Answer = a.




Occam's Razor Application:

3 persons highly experienced with marine life claim to have seen a type of fish that they could not identify.

a) They seen a fish that they could not identify.
b) They seen nothing.
c) It was mass hallucination.
d) It was not a fish.
e) They all lied.
f) It was a hoax.

Answer = a.

Re: That Damn Bigfoot Thing
I'm confused. Is Bigfoot an alien, or did two threads merge?

The question is really all about whether or not multiple eyewitness accounts of a single event (BigFoot, UFOS, Fish) constitute as being any kind of affirmative evidence to support existence of said entities.

In other words, if 12 marine biologists all seen a fish they couldn't identify, does that mean they didn't see a fish?

What are the chances that *gasp* ... they all seen a fish they couldn't identify?

Occam's Razor Application # 2:

12 persons highly experienced with marine life claim to have seen a type of fish that they could not identify.

a) They seen a fish that they could not identify.
b) They seen nothing.
c) It was mass hallucination.
d) It was not a fish.
e) They all lied.
f) It was a hoax.

Answer = a.


I think it's safe to say they seen a fish, don't you?

The fish, bigfoot, and aliens are not interchangeable arguments.

I said nothing about aliens. It is this lack of intellectual honesty that I am speaking about.

You have clearly drawn the parallel with your UFO claim, so don't you dare deny that and then talk about intellectual honesty.

Or the short version:
Fuck you, you disingenuous twit.

Okay, so you don't want to answer to the questions I posed to you.

I understand.

Fuck you, you intellectually dishonest asshole.

The dishonest ones. No, no one agrees that the cases are parallel.

We're done here. You are disingenuous and illogical.

There is absolutely nothing dishonest about any of those questions. In fact, I gave a preemptive advisory:

Quote:Now please answer to those questions only, without adding a single stitch of any other speculation or evidence.

And again, your intellectual dishonesty is glaring. The reality is, your position has been fucking cornered, bent over, and fucked into oblivion to such an extent that it has been forced to answer the question of "Who's your daddy?'
