"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.)

Oh Dear: 'Philip Coppens' Falsehood about Imhotep's Alleged Admission of Alien Pyramid-Building Help'
Finally, I would like to tackle the section on Ezekiel, but quite frankly, this section was incomprehensible to me. I do not understand what his argument is, apart from the obvious fact we are clearly and obviously wrong.t.
Ok, I have nothing to say if you don’t. ( In other words, as long as Coppens or whoever the object of debunkery is keeps quiet, all is good.)
PS. It is now entirely possible that this reply will be used to create another reply, in the vain hope of trying to elicit from me another reply, so that the debate goes on endlessly, with loads of blablabla. (Coppens is correct of course.) As far as I am concerned, the debate ends here. The very reason why this reply was created, was because people wanted me to reply and hear my opinion on the documentary, so I did. In truth, I feel I have written more than 4100 words that I could have written about far more important topics than Mr. White’s documentary.
I would not have written this if the arguments you put forward didn’t deserve to be addressed. (Ah. Well, there it is.)
Debunking Ancient Aliens Debunked..Debunked. My Response to Philip Coppens | Nowhere To Run with Chris White
Sunday, October 14, 2012
Ah, those debunkers. They didn't really think they could get away with it, did they? :)Phillip Coppens debunks the debunkers.
“Ancient Aliens Debunked” is a YouTube released, 190 minutes long documentary by Chris White. In the documentary, he tackles 16 topics that in his opinion form the backbone of the Ancient Alien Hypothesis, which White claims he conclusively refutes, which in his opinion conclusively proves that the evidence presented in the series Ancient Aliens is factually incorrect and worse, he claims, sets out to deceive.
He concludes: “The main thing I want to stress is that I’m not trying to suggest that, while Ancient Aliens got a few claims wrong, there’s room for truth in their main theory. That, in light of this information, is not a tenable position. You have just witnessed the unmistakable symptoms of the entire theory being wrong.”
This is a heavy claim to make! In short, he argues that in his opinion the series has failed to show we were visited by ancient aliens and implies we should therefore forget all about it! So it is now up to television series to prove or disprove scientific theories? Wow! It’s a heavy burden to place on any television series! Far more importantly, it would leave the likes of Carl Sagan flabbergasted, as he felt there was good evidence to look into a number of ancient contact scenarios, especially the story of Oannes – which for some reason, White does not include in this documentary. Why?
Chris White, in typical debunker skeptoid guerrilla tactics, tries the usual. Coppens doesn't let him get away with it, addressing many points in White's documentary. Like this one:
When he goes after Tsoukalos for not knowing that the material at Puma Punku is andesite, while Tsoukalos says diorite, White doesn’t seem to realize there is no true difference between those two, or deliberately chooses to ignore or reference that! Yes, Tsoukalos is wrong, but it is truly a tiny error. The two rocks are equivalents, but are given different names because of the manner in which they were created. But when it comes to hardness, there is no difference. White fails to point that even though Tsoukalos is indeed in error, this error does not change the debate. But wait, instead, White pretends the error does change the debate. It does not. [Bolding mine for emphasis]

Kid's asking for it. It's like wearing a mini-skirt to a biker bar.Point is, ass clowns who call themselves "Bigfoot investigators" out to shoot themselves a Sasquatch are nothing of the kind, and idiots who dress up like BF, while not "deserving" to get shot, are surely being highly irresponsible and taking great risks.
Hunters are protected in this country; if you get shot or killed during hunting season, it is always the victim's fault, never the hunter's. That aside, going out to kill a Bigfoot is a despicable action, and going outdoors dressed in a BF costume is beyond stupid.
