I went to see Charlie Lutes in Cedar Rapids. I wanted to see if he could possibly overcome all the negativity I had towards "all things esoteric" that had amassed since I last had attended a talk of his 27 years earlier.
He gave an aged-old-man-mind's-grinding-down-pure-feeble short lecture and then opened to questions. I asked: "Charlie, back in Berkeley, CA I PERSONALLY heard you say that they would be finding a spaceship inside of the pyramids -- a ship that Jesus used. When do you think they'll find it?" He said, "I never said any such thing." BAM -- with that he ended any and all hopes of me being a true believer again. It was the saddest 20 bucks I ever spent. Fucking liar is how he ended up. What's more instructive than that? SO THANKS, CHARLIE! As for screw-head marks on Mars -- give me a break. I discovered the first man on Mars -- yep, I was the first to see a man on Mars and reported it on the Net to several sites at the time. Here he is -- far more real than any screw. Upper right corner -- with glasses and bow tie. http://mars.nasa.gov/mer/gallery/all/1/p/045/1P132185547EFF05AAP2561R1M1.JPG http://mars.nasa.gov/mer/gallery/all/1/p/045/1P132185547EFF05AAP2561R1M1.JPG
