Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

I was indeed going to bow out -- one thing I've learned is that NO ONE CHANGES THEIR MIND ABOUT ANYTHING. Basically true, not literally. But it's obvious that minds here are made up; the three people whom I had an effect on contacted me privately, and with them I was basically preaching to the choir...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Simon, Coincidentally, I just now sent an email that on two levels deals with your post. The first paragraph is the operative one: Thanks for the thoughtful email. I think a few of the CF boys got into trouble for their dumb ass handling of my posts. Simon was the smartest by keeping his trap shut (...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

If I were 'paranoid' I might answer: 'Continue my investigation'? Is that your advice? Keep investigating even after I've answered the question at hand? Yes, Keep everyone 'investigating'! Along similar lines: I just finished MM's essay on Dylan. Now I have not checked a single source or quote for v...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Flabbergasted, I get your point but see... i've learned to really be on the lookout for NLP/misdirection, and I care not where it comes from. I find it, I assume something's up. On August 25th, a full five days ago I posted: 'Then I did some counting and pretty much... this is only a slight exaggera...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

There we go. Actually dealing with the issue at hand! Thanks. First: yes, I could have counted MM's listed physics papers from 2016, but my impression is that his book on 'The Standing Errors in Physics' -- a mammoth project -- is ongoing, so we don't know when he wrote what. But still, if we count ...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Seneca, Sorry for the mix up re who first posted the question about the music. And of course you are right: it's totally possible that the Sikh event never really happened. As you say, I posted it some years ago. A lot of my early stuff is now dated in that way -- like the O'Neill essay, which refer...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Simon, Good for you! In truth, I was getting worried. I assume you have something lengthy to say on this thread -- and need time to think about it -- otherwise you would have included it in your above post. So I look forward to that. Wait. On the other hand, maybe you missed my post with the word co...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Hoi, I appreciate your taking the time to reply; I'm surprised at so little CF response in general; even Simon avoided the real point of my posts. I would think that the issue (or non-issue) of MM's status as one of us or one of them would be of interest, given the subject matters he covers (or does...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Simon, re your comment or implication that much of MM is old news for the CF, I can only observe that over the last few months at least six 'alt media figures' have highly recommended MM's site on venues like Red Ice Radio and Veritas (this one is dirty, I know) and I forget what others. CF, in spit...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Simon, Our posts crossed in somewhere in the aether... as I say in my post, it's very brief compared to my burgeoning view of MM. I oversimplified. I agree completely that MM's arrogance is annoying -- I tried to put that aside. I also freely admit that I have missed a lot of CF's research and obser...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Hoi and all, please consider this post very incomplete. I have more MM reading to do before offering a definitive opinion. In spite of what follows, I'm not more than 90% sure about MM. First, thanks for the suggestion that I actually count MM's words; it didn't take that long and will allow me to e...

Re: Discussing Miles W. Mathis

Since my last post I've been on a marathon read of Miles Mathis and have a lot to say about Miles - not even counting my correspondence with him (a bit more below) - mostly very positive (re the information and conclusions of his essays), but yesterday something occurred to me -- and I surely do apo...

Re: Does Rocketry Work in the Vacuum?

Ahhh, right. Brianv. Sounded familiar. The guy who likewise made little sense while spouting hostile shill-talk on the Miles Mathis thread. If you wanna aggravate me, best not use language like 'from whence comes the origins of the word "understand". Aside from your scattered sentence structure and ...

Re: Does Rocketry Work in the Vacuum?

I loved the given etymology of 'understand' so much I almost didn't verify it... but alas, before quoting to someone else and so forth, I did... unfortunately: http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=understand But kudos for creativity, nonetheless. (Or perhaps provide your sou...

Re: Does Rocketry Work in the Vacuum?

Simon and I had a back and forth a couple years ago that I'll briefly repeat -- I haven't gone back on this thread to see if something similar has been posted, so forgive the possible redundancy. I asked Simon to imagine the two of us floating in space, me with a loaded 9mm pistol. Would it be ok if...
