Apparently if you play it backwards you can faintly hear the words "Do not land, or we will be forced to destroy your puny planet". Whatever that might mean.... What I can't understand is someone so addicted to New Age garbage and weak-minded thinking that, faced with two of the greatest achievements in the history of man (the Mars lander and this comet lander), they're looking for something more Woo Woo to focus and obsess on. People like JohnR and Nabby just leave me astonished. What *happened* to them that makes them think (or, more accurately, NOT think) the way they do? You would think that they'd be *embarrassed* to show people the ways that their minds work (or fail to), but they actually seem to be proud of it. I think I get where it comes from, I briefly suffered from this need to make more out of the world than there is when I was a kid and was exploring the world outside of me seriously for the first time. I remember it as being like discovering secret knowledge that the stuffy establishment were too blind to see, or something that linked in more with the sci-fi I loved than the BBC documentaries provided. We could call it "Erich Von Daniken syndrome", because it was his books I found in the library that really made me wonder about these alleged esoteric truths. It had to be true or they wouldn't publish it, right? But he did travel to amazing places and got me hooked on the ancient world even though everything he said was total nonsense, as I found out from learning how proper archaeologists go about their work. Crop circles did me a big favour too because it was photo on the front of the Fortean Times magazine that made me buy it and that's what started a somewhat more realistic approach because they would actually look at weird things objectively to see if they were true. This Examiner website does John no favours, they don't seem to have any brake on finding things out before they leap to the fantastical as they have no scientific way of evaluating and grading quality of evidence. I think it spoils the sense of wonder and that's a shame.
