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.

This reminds me of a fellow that, instead of enjoying a meal at a
downtown restaurant, thought he saw a guy levitate by slowly lifting up
off of a sofa and flying around for awhile - and the witness even posted
this on a science site. Go figure.
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.
It seems kind of hypocritical to criticize others when at the same time
you both apparently believe in levitation - suspension in mid-air with
no visible means of physical support,. Any comments?
This /E//xaminer /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
