DRSANITY is a highly credible psychiatrist. She is even popular on our planet, Xetwon, where we can tell the difference between real "British humor"
(which is actually funny) and a couple of idiots playing a childish prank.

Um....okay. The "British humor" I was referring to was Robin's (he's British, ergo "Cockney Robin") in the tongue in cheek piece he wrote.

He didn't actually believe that the sasquatch was real. Dr. Sanity didn't seem to pick that up. And if you don't realize that species die-off is currently out of control.....well, you need to spend more time reading some earth science,. Which was kind of Rob's point. "The highly respected psychiatrist," if indeed she is--never heard of her---just took his piece at po-faced value.

Forgive me if I've never heard of her, you, or of your planet, and if I find Robin quite a lot funnier. :)

That planet where you live sounds like a happy place. Perhaps all your friends on the right could follow you there!

Cheers, Damozel

Dramatic loss of species diversity is undocumentable, because it is not true. Yes, we have to manage our resources carefully and with concern for the environment. But that is for our benefit, not the environment's.

The only reason the self-styled green "experts" are pushing the "species extinction" myth is in order to panic us into "doing something" which will result in more power for them, and no benefit (often harm) to the environment, and us.

same with rainforests...

There is NO massive extinction underway anymore than there is anthropogenic global warming.

I've been accused of not providing proof that species aren't disappearing at an accelerated rate. But that's one of those logical fallacies. The burden of proof is upon those who claim species are threatened. If they can't, then their claims MUST be viewed with skepticism, at the very least.

That being said, we can give as one important example the polar bear whose demise, as Mark Twain said, has been greatly exaggerated.

I also gave a link above in which many "extinct" species have been shown to be NOT extinct, so I actually have provided proof even though it isn't my job to.

Now, what have you got? (fact based specifics only, please)

OH, and I was also criticized for only quoting right wing blogs, not scientists.

Jennifer Marohasey IS a scientist. are most of those quoted by the Right Wing blogs I reference. Calling my sources "Right Wing" is another logical fallacy, attack the messenger as opposed to the message.


So explain this. I found it on another site posted Annoymously:

I worked as an RCMP officer in British Columbia from 1973-1978. On July 17, 1976 we had a very terrible incident that I still can't explain. About 10:30PM we had a group of teenagers (between the ages of 16-18) arrived at our stationhouse. They claimed that they were attacked by something in the forest. One of their group was left behind at their camping site he was hurt, but could not be moved. They claimed that they were attacked by something wild in the area. We assumed it might be a bear or a mountain lion. They assured us it was not. We notified the local park rangers and met them on the scene about an hour or so later. When we arrived at the campsite everything was in disarray. We were never able to locate the missing teen or any indication of a bear of Lion. But we did find later footprints around the camp. (And no it was nothing like these silly oversized "human" looking footprints that everyone tries to call the bigfoot.) They were genuine wild animal tracks although we don't know what it was to this day. We had a zoologist measure the tracks and it was concluded that movement patterns were not fabricated.

Assuming it to be a prank of sorts we questioned the teens further through the next few days. I have always felt that they were telling the truth. Their descriptions did not in anyway represent a bear or any other wild creature that I have seen in my years in that area.

Several days later one of the rangers I had initally journeyed to the campsite with, claimed to have had a sighting that matched the description the teens gave. Which was very odd considering he was not present for any of the questioning and would not have had access to that information.

There have been many sightings of such a creature in our area over the years. I believe something exists although I really don't know what it is.

The incident is currently in RCMP records and is filed as an unsolved crime, July 17, 1976. We never recovered the body of the young man and no charges were pressed.
