I've wondered how or even why The Hobbit will be made into two movies. I liked the original idea of one Hobbit movie based on the entirety of the book proper, and then a second movie based on the...

And people discredit UFO investigation because they (the skeptics) automatically lump them in with tabloids and crackpots. And yet, here is a supposedly level-headed guy clearly muddying his argument...

That hasn't changed, Stoo. I'd still like proof. But proof is more than a Google search. Proof requires due-diligence, time, corroboration and confirmation. I was willing to give that time. Others...

Well, I meant the Nazis, not Belloq. Toht, Dietrich, etc. These guys had no redeeming qualities, nor did any of the soldiers. The most we ever saw was them get angrier when their own were killed. The...

Hmmm, I always thought about it kind of the opposite, that killing Sallah would eliminate the need to re-introduce a character later when the action was ramping up, which goes against the American...

No arguments there. As I've said, maybe the references do not exist, and I was willing to concede that. But it's the sort of thing that takes time to make certain. What I got was people expecting a...

Sorry if I seemed to trivialize the issue. I was simply stating why I didn't make a mental note of the website. I'm sure many "lost pages" from movies are out there (Rhys-Davies said he has two...

So, you're saying that all the "research" that was indeed done by the con-side of the debate was indeed only a few minutes of Google searching? And you think that refutes something? That quick and...

I never said I didn't (learn this case from a pre-1959 source). But the difference here is that I was willing to take the time to properly research it, and even consider being wrong, rather than take...

I recall it being done in proper script form, and I've read enough of them to be able to spot fakes or fan-fictions quite easily. Of course, it doesn't really matter. It was just one of those things...

That is indeed a better way to say it. "Absence of evidence is not proof of absence". I like that much better. Agreed.

On the break-in analogy though, I have to say (and I know it's nit-picking but...

Well, Parrot, actually, I don't think this closes the case. Not at all. As I said, it needs time. You can't undo half a century of research in just a few days of Google. Much more due-diligence must...

No, guys, I will be ridiculed no matter what I say or do, because you and your little Clique will never backstep or say "I don't know" yourselves. Funny how you repeatedly accuse me of something you...
