Over-inflated, bruised egos may be among the biggest obstacles to overcome in order to accelerate our journey to the planets and the stars
I had no sooner posted my blog about Stuart Robbins, the protégé to Phil Plait, then someone sent me a link to Plait’s latest blog at Discover Magazine about recent NASA discoveries of water on Mars. Of course, as had been pointed out previously, Billy Meier had already published information about the presence, and discoveries, of water there as far back as 1976* and 1987.
Obviously, it wasn’t something that the know-it-alls wanted to acknowledge then and they certainly don’t want to now. It seems that scientists are just like any and everybody else seeking their 15 minutes in the spotlight, meaning that they will go to great lengths to not only get it to shine on them but to try to pull the plug on anyone else that they feel may be a threat to their public ambitions and aspirations.
Maybe Discover Magazine Doesn’t Want To?
Okay, so I quickly rushed to post a provocative comment on the blog. And can you imagine my surprise when it failed to show up…even after two attempts?
“Wow, water on Mars, really? Do you mean kinda like what…Billy Meier first published in 1976 (with more in 1987), which can be found here:
Gee, what a clever “hoaxer” he is indeed. Good thing we have these sharp young whipper-snappers to set us straight about that!
Heck, one day we may discover that there really are “closed space bulges” that are the opposite of black holes…as Meier reported in 1986.
Maybe it’s not such a bad idea to get some scientific and astronomical information from someone who’s…been there.”
Allergic to the Truth?
Okay, so maybe it was the fact that I had links in the post that stopped it. So I tried it without links, two more times. No luck. Was I detecting the petty, envious hand of Phil Plait…again? Having been challenged by me before to use his own criteria to evaluate Meier’s evidence, Plait had simply checked out for parts unknown. Some “scientist”.
It’s bad enough that the skeptics went through all sorts of gyrations to try to prove that Meier either backdated his stunningly accurate Jupiter information, or that he got important details wrong. So invested in their own tiny, myopic prejudices, so desirous of floating their own inflated egos over and above all else, these pseudo-scientists ignore the basic requirements of real, objective scientific inquiry, Had the information from Meier about Jupiter, for instance, been only a solitary, lucky guess adrift in a sea of wild speculation and incorrect information, it would be completely understandable to ignore the majority of his claims. But such is clearly not the case.
And it would be easy for any real scientist, and not just some current aspirant to be the next Carl Sagan, to discover the facts about the huge body of scientific information that is liberally spread through thousands of pages of Meier’s published information, in plain sight for all to see. But don’t expect it from the Phil Plaits, Michael Shermers and even Neil deGrasse Tysons, all of whom seem strangely allergic to venturing where few have gone before…in search of the real truth.
Shining the Light in Dark Corners
Do know, dear reader, that I have made more than a few handfuls of attempts to reach these “brilliant” fellows. Over-inflated egos are often quite fragile at their core. The need to exalt oneself as some form of “expert” – especially in light of the still relatively primitive level of actual scientific knowledge we possess – is a rather pathetic thing and often costly to real progress. Unfortunately, however, there always are those who try their hardest to hold back, suppress and even eliminate the greatest among us, and to try to make themselves look important more important. They are quite often aligned with religious forces; and nowhere is the dogmatic grip of antiquated belief systems more obvious and damaging than when it’s administered by the practitioners of the thinly veiled religion of skepticism.
Of course when one shines the light of truth on these shadowy forces in dark corners they can become very evasive. Such is the case with the poseurs at Point of Inquiry, who chose a rather ignominious, cowardly retreat in the face of my challenges to take an objective, critical look at the Meier case. To the many pieces of correspondence from readers of my blog (copied to me), in support of such a program, not one response from these professional skeptics has been reported.
The thought that Meier had already trekked around Olympus Mons on Mars**, on the company of the Plejaren, would certainly be too much to entertain in the minds of these self-appointed “knowledgeable ones”.
*Also, at an earlier time, Semjase explained to Meier that exotic biological life forms live on Mars that feed off of all biological life, something that is not yet understood by Earth scientists. It was actually a reminder to Meier that Asket and Sfath had previously explained this information to him. (From: Message from the Pleiades, Volume 3, Page 216)
Perhaps in the near future I will have the opportunity to also link back to this article for the purpose of pointing out that a “new discovery on Mars about unusual biological life forms”…really isn’t that new at all.
**On January 28, 2011, Christian Frehner of FIGU Switzerland, confirmed that Meier had indeed walked around on the volcano Olympus Mons, during one of his visits to Mars with the Plejaren.
