An open mind?

     I like to think that I have an open mind about most things. I realize that I do not know everything in the universe, and I am willing to learn about most things. Sometimes I watch a show on TV called Ancient Aliens. It's about these people who believe that the Earth was visited in ancient times by aliens, and that the aliens influenced, and aided  our ancient ancestors. They have all done research, some have written books about the subject.

     Most of the time, what these self professed "ancient alien theorists" have to say is interesting. But recently one of these characters crossed the line, as far as I'm concerned. His name is Giorgio Tsoukalos, I'm not sure if I spelled his name correctly. He is the publisher of some fancy alien theorist magazine.

    All this time, I've been listening to this man and his cohorts spout all these crazy explanations for things. In one episode, he was talking about this particular ancient civilization, I don't remember exactly which one it was, but he stated that these people believed in "magic water". He looked at the camera with a straight face, and actually said these words - "Now, we all know that there's no such thing as magic water!"

    In an episode more recently, he was talking about a man who walked into a cave and didn't come out for two years. TWO YEARS. His opinion on this? Well, to him it was perfectly obvious that the man walked into the cave and directly into a time vortex, where he got transported to another world or time, for the two years that he was gone. He actually used the words "PERFECTLY OBVIOUS". But yet, we all know that there's no such thing as magic water.... Seriously??

    Since I saw that particular episode, I can't take him seriously. I always wondered who styled his hair, which sticks out in all directions, in a halo around his head. I wondered if he knew he looked ridiculous. And now, every time he speaks about anything, I always say, "We all know there's no such thing as magic water!"

    It just blows me away that the concept of "magic water" is too much for him to believe in, but a man can walk into a cave and directly into a time vortex. This guy has lost what little credibility he had with me. He just pushed me too far. The other "theorists" who appear on the program I have no problem with. I wish the shows producers would get rid of that one guy. But I don't even know if that show is still in production, making new shows.

    And my mind is still open, really it is. Thanks for letting me vent, this has been on my mind for weeks. It feels good to get it out of my system.

  1. Best First Chuckle of the Morning Award goes to...may I have the envelope, please? BICRAFTUAL Ravings On Life! I think I have seen that show when we had television. I can probably still get it on the computer and I might do that one evening JUST SO I CAN SAY "Now, we all know that there's no such thing as magic water!"
