Must See TV: Everything You Know is Wrong
I'm sure a lot of you may be familiar with Lloyd Pye's work, but may not have seen it encapsulated the way this talk very nicely does. This talk was given before his work on the Starchild skull, but still raises a lot of very interesting questions.
I checked out his site and watched a National Geographic program on the Ancient Astronaut question and began to wonder if America's scientists and skeptics are getting profoundly more stupid or simply can't be bothered to coherently defend some of their absurd claims on the pyramids or the Nazca lines.
I'm also beginning to wonder if our educational system has intentionally weeded out any truly curious minds and funneled only the most socially retarded individuals into the sciences. It seems like NatGeo- and all the other networks, besides- want to mock and shoot down AAT, but seem to call on the most obnoxious and untelegenic people on the face of the planet to do so.
