What qualifies you to determine whether or not 'altered states'
is drivel or that the psychological angle is 'bogus'? I suspect
that is just your opinion rather than a fact, or are we supposed
to think that your opinion and fact are in all things identical?

Not having the time to watch UFO entertainment (other than a few
Mail Lists and web sites), I haven't watched the programme under
discussion (I don't see how it relates to my own views, I don't
recall having taken part in any such programme so I would also
query why it is posted the original thread?).

How much do you know about the case you are discussing? Have you
interacted with the witness? Read the transcript of his HR
session? Do you know how much interaction Clarke and Roberts have
had with the witness and others involved in the case? How much
have you had? What qualifies you to level such criticism, or is
that another example of your faultless opinion based on, er, a
movie clip?

Regards,

Joe
