Last night, Mike Shermer spread his usual errors on the Coast to Coast AM radio show while trying to explain away phenomenon that don’t fit modern atheist and Marxist views of not just science, but physical laws. He gave a point of view based on baseless atheism, he even says a “skeptical” (doubting) view, not truly unbiased or truly objective.
Second he said of magicians that he doesn’t know how certain magic tricks are done but KNOWS they’re just magic. In other words he has FAITH in what he does not know is purely material phenomenon. And he treats this faith as “scientific” and “logic” and “reason”.
Third: in general he is right that magicians do magic, however he’s over generalizing, as plenty of magicians have engaged in experiments are acts that resulted in what the world has and can see to no end are repeatable phenomenon that cannot be explained by pure materialism/atheist-biased science/science from an atheist’s faith that everything is explainable materiastically. Also, magicians have never: a) caused a UFO or ghost phenomenon that violate physics observations, especially spectacular b) haven’t supernaturally healed c) have not reproduced demon possession phenomenon which is well-documented, and on and on. Tricks that are clearly matetiastic are just that, they have nothing to do with things occuring OUTSIDE a magic trick set up! Take for example regular UFO phenomenon in certain spots: where’s the magician? How is he profiting from them, where’s he getting the time, materials, money and energy for the daily phenomenon he himself said military pilots observe? He also said the usual narcissistic, “I’M SPECIAL, why (wouldn’t God let me see) didn’t I see such things?” line, only with an added twist: “everyone has phones and high resolution cameras”. Says who, rich man Shermer? Shermer, everyone’s rich and not worn out like your privelaged self? Shermer ignored the obvious: 1. The Bible’s/God’s testimony that Satan is a deciever with god-like power and a huge amount of evil ingenius helpers who are like him, so, obviously, and as endless reports indicate: the phenomenon is made by intelligent beings, and as the Bible indicates are in general going to be from evil, malicious beings, beings that love to harm, frustrate, abuse, confuse, corrupt and kill (if possible) the observers or they are targeting. 2. IS indeed everyone carrying a high res phone with such high resolution that a person like Shermer (who is unwilling to admit any pic or vid of any UFO or “ghost” shows a non-human or animal-made object or that isn’t natural) will admit it’s not a human-made object that was recorded, because many UFOs are far away, travelling extremely fast, faint, or disappear quickly 3. Are are high res phones free of scratches, cracks, grease or dirt on the lense? 4. Do all high res phones have screens that are easy to see in bright sunlight when trying to record 5. Do all the high res phones have uncracked and unscratched screens so they cam be used well? 6. Do they all instantly turns on and 7. the camera quickly focuses and has good focus tracking and good stabilization and correct white balance and ISO set, and 8. do all the phone users have good eyesight, and 8. their eyeglasses clear and ready, and 9. not busy, 10. not in a crowded situation, 11. their phones have necessary power to start getting good photos and videos and 12. enough memory? 13. Is everyone in good health, NOT weary and NOT in pain and 14. looking up nonstop (which would be weird snd hsrd on the neck to do) 15. or looking out nonstop from an airplane? 16. I think many people are not even aware they are seeing a UFO/demon/angel/or uncommon bird or reptile, and by the time they think it’s worth recording it’s maybe too far or gone (just as when one may try to record a bird of prey or vultures or some rare but well-documented animal, or even insect). 17. Shermer is being arbitrary and vague by requiring “high resolution” recordings. What would be “high” enough for him? Since many pics and vids are clear enough that it’s obvious the UFOs in them are not human-made, why must the resolution be higher? It’s not a logical or scientifically honest for Shermer to set some arbitrary bar and unreachable at that. 18. Shermer made a false argument, a “strawman” by claiming there’s no video or photo good enough, and it’s arrogant and evil for him to pretend so and pretsnd he speaks for everyone. There’s endless good examples of unnatural objects such as is shown on The Secret NASA Tranmissions Documentary at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8Dro2CTqEhI and photos from 1870-1959 which was a time when photo-faking wouldn’t be common or likely due to the culture (what people would be interested in doing during that era), finances of most people and available technology (see https://www.ufocasebook.com/bestufopictures.html) and this wonderful collection https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=01VxWsHLQJs. And why cannot Shermer do his own recording attempts? It’s easy for a rich man like him to do high res night time recordings of haunted houses or remote areas of the night time sky. Whose stopping Shermer from exploring non-stop supernatural hotspots like Skinwalker Ranch, Goatman’s Bridge and the Yellowstone area plagued with supernatural disappearanes of people/missing persons?. So, Shermer’s reasoning is extremely oblivious to, like all illogical demon-blinded sin-enslaved minds: MANY FACTORS and over generalizing and over simplifying. It’s the same as him saying, “Oh all eye witness accounts are unreliable, and memory too!” while as one caller said basically to him, “So why believe you?” and to which he instantly replied with a contradiction: “Don’t just believe me/skeptics”, yet in the end that IS what he wants and so is literally just making contentious arguing that self-contradicts due to his logical fallacies and biased and baseless suppositions. Shermer denies what is obvious and twists the truth, lies to no enr and ignores truths because? Because as Jesus said, he’s blinded by the god of this world, enslaved to doing wrong (like lying and being self-centered and prideful/has baseless privelaged thinking, delusions of granduer that he has the special ability to know things without testing this (so he’s a hypocrite too), and if so and so sees or sees all the time he’d see it too, AND INSTANTLY GET GOOD PICS AND VIDS YA’LL! because he’s so worthy, so important, and surely if there was a God he’d have shown him to his face every incident he personally doubts or says couldn’t be (how unreasonable, arrogant, conceited and insulting, eh?)
