    Are you looking for reassurances that it's fake?

    A lot of people choose to live in technological solipsisms where their alternate view of reality is constantly nurtured by websites devoted to paranoia and mysticism. It's entertainment for people who are so thoroughly overentertained that they've forgotten what reality sounds like.

    My advice is to stay away from it. You're looking at one single tip on a tentacle of information that belongs to something alive.
    Doesn't that mean most people are trolls?

    No, it means most people on forums are called trolls at one point or another for stating their opinion honestly.

    It seems legit.
    Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?

    Love the comments on that site. The Woo is indeed strong.

    Hahaha, I missed this one:

    "The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence."

    Oh man it got me in a laughing fit... Cheezes, its strange people ONLY apply this concept to their views and ANYTHING else is just "a joke", be it Santa Claus or Dragons flying around or invisible people walking next to you.... ITs just so.. Well, human, how weak the human race is having these people thriving in our communities, how sad indeed.

    yeah that comment really got me laughing too.

    I know it's fake, but looking at the comments on that site it was amazing to see how many people gave it a benefit of the doubt.

    the comments speak for itself.

    My favorite was the guy who made the case for an ancient civilization on the moon.... wow, really dude?

    Curious as to this doctors credentials and background, a simple googling reveals "Dr. Morris Charles" died 30yrs ago. So, there's that story wrinkle. As they say, there is is sucker born every minute.

    UPDATE: Ha, I found a YouTube video posted last year on this "breaking news" discovery. The robot voice over, new-age space music... wow.
