Untrue.
PLENTY of people believe in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, etc.
If UFO's and ghosts are to be studied, they must be studied too!
To write off the Easter Bunny is to be a poor scientist
When you consider all of the allegations and controversy, it is actually very difficult to determine if UFOs or aliens exist, unless one lands in your lounge.

It is difficult to determine whether a UFO is of alien origin, or just some government military experiment. Many skeptics of the government, particularly the U.S. government, have made claims that their government remains 5 to 10 years ahead of the public in technology. If the government wants its people to believe in alien invasion, they may be quite capable of staging the whole thing. It could possibly also be used as a coverup for plundering resources in other countries, if the "War on Terror" sales pitch ever fails.

Idk what a notbot is, a new character in the upcoming transformer movie? Anyways do show me the Atheist on here making threats of violence. Also if you think Atheists are superstitious, you obviously don't understand the meaning of the word puppet. Honestly that doesn't come as a surprise.

It is interesting how Boas got radiation poisoning after the case. There have been other U.F.O cases where radiation / cancers came about after U.F.O sightings.

Antonio Villas Boas was a Brazilian farmer claimed to have been abducted by extraterrestrials in 1957. His claims were among the first alien abduction stories to receive world wide attention.

On October 16, 1957, 23-year-old Boas was plowing his farm with a tractor at night to avoid the hot temperatures of the day. He saw what he described as a "red star" in the night sky. This "star" approached him, growing in size, until he recognized it as an egg-shaped craft with a red light at its front and a rotating cupola on top. The craft landed in the field on three "legs". Boas then decided to run from the scene.

He first attempted to leave on his tractor but its lights and engine died so he decided to run on foot. However, he was seized by a five-foot humanoid wearing grey coveralls and a helmet. Its eyes were small and blue. It made noises like barks or yelps of a small dog. Suddenly, three similar beings joined the first humanoid in restraining Boas, dragging him inside their craft.

Inside the craft, Boas was stripped naked then covered from head-to-toe with a strange gel. He was then led into a large semicircular room, through a doorway that had strange red symbols written over it. He was later able to recall them [right]. Inside this room, the humanoid beings took samples of Boas' blood from his chin. He was then taken to a third room while some kind of gas was pumped into the room, making Boas become violently ill.

Boas claims he was soon joined in the room by a female humanoid. She was very attractive, and naked, the same height as the other beings, had a small, pointed chin and large, blue catlike eyes. The hair on her head was long and platinum blonde but Boas noticed her underarm and pubic hair were bright red. Boas said he was strongly attracted to the woman, and the two had sexual intercourse. During this act, Boas noted that the female did not kiss him but instead nipped him on the chin.

After having intercourse, the female humanoid smiled and rubbed her belly while gesturing upwards. Boas understood this to mean that she was going to raise their child in "up there" in space. Boas said that he felt angered after the encounter. He felt as though he had been used and was little more than "a good stallion" for the humanoids.

He was then given his clothing back and taken on a tour of the ship. He attempted to steal a small clock-like object as a souvenir his encounter, but was caught by the humanoids. He was then escorted off the ship and watched as it took off. When he returned home, Boas discovered that four hours had passed.

Following his abduction, Boas suffered from nausea, weakness, headaches and lesions on the skin. Dr. Olavo Fontes of National School of Medicine of Brazil examined the farmer and concluded that he had been exposed to a large dose of radiation from some source and was now suffering from mild radiation sickness.

Openly support Multiculturalism to their own ethnicity.
It is dishonorable & disrespectful to ancestors who fought & died for your ethnicity.
What? I don't support White murderers. Only in certain cases. Yes I support the Russians who beheaded Muslims.
I don't support a White murderer who just wants to kill his wife or kill someone at the bank as he robs it.
Blacks make up the majority of murder in the U.S it is fact.
Our DNA goes back to primates, fish, algae etc etc
So I should stop shocking my pool to kill algae because apparently I am killing my poor superior ancestors of algae. LOLOL
I should stop eating fish because I am killing my poor ancestors LOL
You fail to see they upset your sensibilities, you are besotted with ignorance and riddled with hatred and so you are blind to facts,

Did I mention ethnicity? No did I mention support? No. my words were - You are quite willing to accept DNA evidence to convict a murderer but are unwilling to accent that same evidence that shows where you are descended from.

What’s it like to be descended from black ancestors and yet to pour so much hatred on the facts of life, on you ancestral heritage, it must be so confusing for you to hate your black ancestors with such spite, such vengeance, such inhuman emotion. There must be something seriously screwed up in your brain to harbour so much malevolence against your ancestors.

Colour does not change that fact that the majority of murderers and other criminals in US gaols are christian.

Our DNA goes back 47 million years, fish and fish and algae DNA contain the same nucleotides as all life but I know what you mean? However you fail to include the blacks of east Africa as the source of the human race, your ancestors.

Where do you find these silly stories? How do you know he didn't just get dragged into a field and gang raped by a bunch of Ukranains from Chernobyl? He must've been too ashamed to say, and so made up this story and those rapists got away because of it.

Not as stupid you, darling.
If longevity was based on religion- your ridiculous assertion, darling- then the longevity would be the reverse of religious faith.
That is to say, dipstick, the least religious country would have the longest longevity.
I posted proof already refuting this.
Smarter persons would at least compare the "religiosity" within the same country... oh yes, I already did that.
U of Colorado study shows religious persons outlive those lacking religion.
Here's another:
"Could 95,000 Women Be Wrong?
A study using data from the Women's Health Initiative found that women aged 50 and up were 20% less likely to die in any given year if they attended religious services weekly (15% reduction if they attended less than weekly) compared to those that never attend religious services. This analysis was controlled for age, ethnicity, income level and (most importantly) current health status. The data was collected through surveys and an annual review of medical records. What was interesting was that the religion effect applied to overall risk of death, but not to risk of death from heart conditions. There is no explanation for why that might be. The fact that the study controlled for overall health status makes it more possible that attending religious services has a positive impact on health (not just that healthier people go to services more often).
"
(clip)
Here's anopther:
"Add 2 to 3 Years with Religion
Another study also found benefit to attending religion services, this time expressed in added years of life. Researchers have found that weekly attendance at religious services is associated with 2 to 3 additional years of life. These findings were controlled for other factors such as amount of physical exercise and taking cholesterol medications.
"
Here's another:
Scientific studies over the last four decades have examined the role of both public and private religious expression on health and longevity. The studies have shown that the practice of religious activity improves health and increases longevity. The effect is seen even when other social/psychological differences are taken into account. For example, one 16-year study examined mortality rates in 11 religious vs. 11 secular kibbutzim in Israel. Although both communities were demographically-matched and provided similar levels of social support, three time more people died in the secular kibbutzim compared to the religious kibbutazim. The following is a short list of some recent studies that have shown the positive influence of religion on health and longevity.

Dipstick: smarter persons do not compare (e.g.) UK to USA for the simple reason that subjects of the UK are for the most part a bunch of PANSIES compared to the USA, and that is a more critical consideration when longevity is concerned.
Hey butt plug it was your claim. You jumped into another conversation of which you were clueless (sometimes known here in the UK as head full of seagull syndrome) with some ridiculous claim based on local data and I showed you were being ridiculous. Don’t blame me for your stupidity and inability to understand by doing the christian sloping shoulder trick.

Wonderful and the chrurch leaders are wondering why they have falling congregations. People like you are the cause

Well I guess your local press must be much better informed than the WHO to feed your ignorance. Please note that acronym it stands for WORLD health organisation and seeing as how the original conversation that you jumped in on was about the life expectancy of countries your local press releases mean squat.

Well done in the choice you make of people to model your life on. It makes perfect sense that you should worship murdering a$$holes, cowards are what you worship, yes perfect sense.

Hey butt plug, here’s a thought, you settled in the US, does that give the indigenous American the right to massacre you? Now that is a nice thought

Here is another thought. How about if rather than infesting the religious threads with your racist bigotry you try taking your racist hatreds to where it would be appreciated. Try the African American forum, there’s quite a few racist on there getting their a$$es kicked. Or are you too much of a coward?

Hi bro.
What about Africans is modern human?
Their massive maxillar prognathism? short dolichocephalic skulls? Thicker skulls? Smaller brains? Shorter wider noses? Their longer arms? Their bigger mouths? Their more likely simian shelf? The more simian facial angle?

Is it modern Human that both Africans & Chimpanzees compared to Eurasians are born sooner, born lighter, born with smaller heads, function sooner, walk sooner, go through puberty earlier, reach menopause earlier, die earlier , have higher twinning rates etc etc.

Africans are simply less than Modern Humans. Sorry they simply aren't Modern humans.

Yeah they are Semi Human but by no means a Modern human.

If Africans all had gone extinct just before modern Anthropology we would probably have Anthropologists look at African skulls the way they do Neanderthals, Red Deer cave people, etc

Because Africans lived on it is simply politically incorrect to mention the obvious that Africans are less than human.
