Unfortunately, it IS!
I assure you the specimens discovered between anthracite
veins are neither a ``very stupid, pointless hoax" nor a joke.
You see, David, sometimes truth can INDEED be stranger
And please don' t mention the possibility of my disregard for the
``proper scientific method" of investigation.
Instead, point your finger at the scientific establishment which has
displayed a total lack of honesty and integrity in pursuit of this
And, unfortunately, science's disregard for facts is nothing new.
Col. James Churchwood squarely hit the nail on the head with
a few choice words in one of his books:
>>> ``Our scientists today do not want facts.
>>> They hate them because it upsets all
>>> the fairy tales they have been building up
>>> for many, many years."
If the truth really hurts, David, I'd suggest you take a pain pill,
wait about five minutes, then click on:
Maybe it won't hurt so much!
