Brian Gross Posted 12 months ago The debate about Graham Hancock's talk I will reply here because the other spaces are full. So Pat, why exactly do you feel Graham's talk is not worth spreading or having a conversation about? Why is Mr. Hancock's work just a crazy loon compared to the "real scientist doing the real work"? What is this real work being done? I am genuinely interested. Seems Hancock doesn't deserve to beg these questions in your eyes because ( even though he makes no claims about the reality status of these entities ) you are saying he IS saying they are real. I disagree. Seems more like he is saying he believes in these entities along with a well documented culture of people who also believe. "Every legitimate scientific idea has to cross a threshold of basic rational plausibility before it's worthy of serious consideration." Says who? You? Science? I don't believe Hancock was expressing a "legitimate scientific idea." To me it appears that Graham was expressing an idea that questions our perception of ourselves and science. Whatever man. Your mind looks like its made up. I don't care what you think. What I do care about is people or institutions telling others what to think. Who gets that job anyway? The smart people get that job right? The scientist get it. Good thing the really smart people are figuring everything out for us. I didn't want to think anyway.
