"There's an old saying; just because you're paranoid, that doesn't mean they're not out to get you. I have my own variation: just because you're insane that doesn't mean that things aren't slipping in unnoticed through dimensional gateways..." ~ Christopher Knowles (h/t to The Daily Grail for quote.)

As I've remarked many times, for a being they don't believe exists, they spend a lot of time discussing it, from a wide variety of angles.

On a later post, I'll discuss my favorite BF threads over there.

So what's he doing? Going in, and cheerfully rearranging books. He knows, you see, where they belong. Not just any book, randomly moved to elsewhere at his whim. But books on ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot, and the like-- moved out of the non-fiction section (or science, etc.) to the fiction section. He knows better, those silly librarians, with their degrees and training and all, don't.
(I have to say though that something about the post smacked of a put on... shrug.)
Such a helpful chap (and you'll see, when you visit the thread on JREF, why I'm talking like a character out of My Fair Lady) just trying to make things right. And all he gets for it are stern warnings from, alas, librarians who should be on his side.
Other JREFers join in, with comments of support, and their own tales of woe about this very same problem. Private bookstore, or library, they make their displeasure known. Why, sometimes, as one poster shared, bookstores take him up on his advice, and they do move UFO books to the fiction section! (Shame on wimpy ass bookstore!)
I tell you, if some full of himself smug skepti-bunkie came into my bookstore and told me what he thinks about UFO books or ghost books, etc. being moved to the fiction section, I'd be mildly polite (business you know, to a point) and utterly ignore the twit.
Not that I own a bookstore. But one of my dreams is to own a groovy little UFO bookstore on the coast. Then again, if I did, I can't see a skeptoid coming in there in the first place.
