The cool thing about truth

        "The cool thing about truth," per Mike Bara on the Farces and the Chirps  yesterday, "is that it eventually becomes self-evident no matter what 'scientists say'."

        Scientists say that the following passages from Mike's books are poppycock, balderdash and codswallop:

"Many of the planet's orbits, which ... should be perfectly circular by now, are highly elliptical. In fact, Mars's orbit is so eccentric that its distance from Earth goes from 34 million miles at its closest to 249 million miles at its greatest." -- The Choice, p.34

 "[T]he clouds are the highest in the atmosphere, meaning that they are reflecting more light back to the camera and at a faster rate. Since they are returning more light, the clouds are the lightest. The surface areas ... are darker, because they are a bit further away from the camera than the clouds and therefore the light has to travel further before it is reflected back. The deep blue oceans are therefore the darkest, because the light has to travel all the way to the ocean floor before it is reflected back to the camera."-- Mike writing about images of Earth from space, Ancient Aliens on the Moon  p.125
        Mike's going to need to wait a long time before either of those catastrophically wrong  ideas becomes self-evident, or even merely evident. As for "truth," forget it Mike.

Today the nauseating Mike Bara posted "There is nothing more satisfying than knowing my haters are suffering over my success."

I don't think anyone here is suffering because Bara is able to pay his cable bill this month. He's no less entitled to whatever he calls success than any of the Kardasians. Personally, I don't think of Bara at all beyond the amusement he creates when he pretends to be an expert in something. But if it makes him feel good thinking that his enemies (real or imagined) are heart broken he doesn't have to bum cigarette money from his friends and family, who am I to judge.

Comes across like he's trying to convince himself that he's been successful. You can almost hear the "pleeeease tell me I haven't wasted my life??" echoing out.

"The cool thing about truth is that it eventually becomes self-evident no matter what scientists say" - Bara.

That's actually a kind of "true" not in Barby World but in Baraworld where the likes of RCH and RM live all together in some sort of harmony ("Life in plastic, it's fantastic!"). In the sense that when you repeat the same things over and over for one or two decades using enough media while ignoring any form of serious critique, any stubborn opinion or speculation can become "de facto standard". And since the wild speculation now gained some history and notoriety by blind repetition and even produces some bastard offspring around the place, something indeed has been "created" which actually functions like a container for various personal meanings and coinage to pass around in a broader like-minded community.

It's about this rather detached world full of conventions, very generic or amateur radio and sensational television or tabloids. That's the universe "it" lives and where all the proponents of "it" live and breath. Of course this is why they can look at any independent scientist of expert and ask "who are you??". Because indeed, what is the weight of those criticizers in this world of non-stop speculative entertainment inside the clouds? Yes, Cloud City, where charlatans and believers merge as one duplicitous set of characters (stuffed even a Star Wars reference here)

Talking about Sci-Fi, it's perhaps like that giant airborne party in the books of Douglas Adams:

The longest and most destructive party ever held is now into its fourth generation and still no one shows any signs of leaving. Somebody did once look at his watch, but that was eleven years ago now, and there has been no follow up. - Douglas Adams, Life, the Universe and Everything

Mike Bara also stated on The Paracast radio show;

Sitchin is truth;
Lloyd Pye is truth;
Dark Mission is truth;
The Choice is truth.

So there we have it. Mike Bara's definition of truth.

Sitchin has been well exposed as a lying old bastard, Llyod Pye now deceased and his starchild skull shown to be human, and as for Dark Mission and the choice. Let's all laugh together at those works of utter nonsensical shite.

"Llyod Pye now deceased and his starchild skull shown to be human"

that is not entirely accurate mister one-zero :-)

...the starchild skull has shown to be partially human..the other part remains open for any educated argument
