    Honestly, I think they wanted someone who was more of a vocal skeptic to counter Bill.

    The problem is, it makes Bill look worse.

    No, not just believe...he goes beyond just believing there's life elsewhere. I think the guy in the middle believes.

    Bill runs with EVERY inference of ANYTHING. It's not enough that there's life on other planets that's visited here...he scoffs at you for not agreeing with him that alien life has conspired with evil humans to build secret underground fortresses in Nevada where humans and aliens are treated as lab rats and mutants are created.

    I love the show! :) love me some MonsterQuest, too! :)

    A little bit, yeah. But maybe even more so. His beliefs change with every new piece of evidence he's presented. Any yes/no inference for ANYTHING AT ALL involving aliens, he comes out yes on. ANYTHING.

    Same guy, this time taking 'luck/paranormal' to task.

    I'm saddened to learn that monkeys cannot recreate Shakespeare's work.

    And dammit, those socks I wore in high school did attribute to a couple of those wins.

    5 Pages of 'S'? Really??!?!? Stupid monkeys...

    Rationalization of everything small is all good and fun, but what one always has to remember is that the universe is essentially irrational.

    It's all spelled out in the laws of physics. Conservation; energy cannot be created or destroyed, merely transformed. So how this world came into being is anyone's guess, although one could lean heavily to the religious/supernatural if one were inclined.

    Western society is too concerned about logic and rationalizing things in my opinion. Some things are never meant to be defined. We lose sight of the fact that sometimes, if you truly reflected about it, little of the fundamentals of this world make sense.

    Complete open mindedness would be madness.I doubt anyone could rationally prove everything. As long as the "evidence" passes your personal threshold of believability, knock yourself out.
