the Ancient Aliens theory?

You know the more I watch this series and the more it becomes obvious that none of these learned experts agree on anything. Then entire show works on the idea that it knows better than the scientists because this vanguard of explorers all confirm that same theory, the Ancient Aliens theory. But it's rarely the case. Take my favorite ep, episode 3, at 17 minute they talk about Nazca again. Instead of being an airport now it's a quarry. And a few seconds later listen to what Robert Schoch, Daniken and Giorgio say about the band of holes from Peru. None of them say the same thing again: to Daniken it's a gigantic harvester from Dune that flew away back into thin air, to Giorgio and Schoch it's everything at once.

Oh and the bit where they say that the entire goal of genetics is to make people with the head of a cat or of a heron is hilarious. Their version of Egyptology must be very popular in academia.

Once again. a pleasure to read your blog.

Re: Nuremberg's Aliens' Air Show?

I actually haven't heard of that 1561 event Yardang, but thanks for bringing it to my attention because it sounds fascinating. I'm not sure when I'll get to it, it seems like there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that I want to, but that's definitely on my list of something interesting to check into.

Nuremberg's Aliens' Air Show?

It has been fun to read the Dumbass guidance I have read so far. I might have missed something you have commented on. Did you cover the supposed aerial battle that took place in the skies above Nuremberg Germany in April of 1561? I recently studied what I could find about parhelia (singular: parhelion), or "sundogs" (I prefer that term better b/c I like dogs). From what I now understand about sundogs, I am skeptical about the Nuremberg incident unlike I thought I ever could be. If you have not commented on the incident yet, Dumbass, I would appreciate it if you would - thanks.

Re: you know it's quite funny to watch

The absurdity of what Tsoukalos says is often very funny. Both him and Childress often say the most ridiculous things, making me sincerely wonder whether they're actually just playing a joke on everybody.

But then, it's hard to underestimate the human ability for people to fool themselves so thoroughly that they will actually say things like this with a straight face.

I read one article written by somebody who knows Tsoukalos and disagrees with him, and so it seems that if Tsoukalos is just joking around that he's doing it with his friends and acquaintances as well.

What would be awesome, if it's true, is if after all the episodes have aired Tsoukalos comes out and says "HA!! I've been fooling you suckers all along!! I can't believe you fell for that crap!!"

you know it's quite funny to watch

Yes I know, when I saw the first episode with Daniken, aka episode 0, I felt like tying a rope around my neck. The guy that was caught cheating eons was doing it again using the crappiest arguments. But the episodes with Alex are out of this world (as the subject pretends to be). His claims are hilarious and how he jumps to conclusions is possibly the best way to convince anyone to double check their facts. I love how they build a false sense of suspense too. I watch each episode a couple of times to fall asleep at night still giggling, it reminds me of the old Unsolved Mysteries crap. Once you see it as a joke it makes for the greatest rational teaching materials. But boy am I glad to hear your podcast afterwards. Keep up the good work.
