Same here, I am an experiencer, I _know_ something is out there,
I am not, however willing to upset my whole pardigim paradgim,
er, whatever, for some fool or delusional saying lo! there! or
some evil soul abusing followers for cash or their fifteen
minutes (sometimes way more than they deserve) of fame.

Good job Kevin, there are at least two now who support you ! If
there is any progress to be made, it has to come from honest
hard working people.

Thanks,

GT McCoy
