Does the name Erra point to Poe's Law? Are there any goats on this planet?
Exactly how far apart from each other are the individual stars in this constellation? (I believe they're very young stars, also? (that's young as relative for stars, not as in Creationist young)) — Unsigned, by: Scherben / talk / contribs
Question about the strikethrough on the word 'Aryan'
I was just reading the article and I noticed that the word Aryan is crossed out, I would like to know what's the reason for this to happen, or if the editor of this page just thinks that the Aryans aren't a real ethnic/cultural term or white people aren't Aryans, because the white europeans are Indo-Europenas this is a scientific fact, I can post some evidences if needed, I'd like to suggest that the writer who edits this page remove the strikethrough and keep only one of the words, either Aryan or White, or keep both with a slash between them 'Aryan/White', this is just a idea and suggestion of mine, any feedback would be appreciated Lalumierebleue (talk) 16:13, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
- Strikethrough humour is used a lot on this site. As for the word "Aryans", it's a word often misused by racists to mean "white" so the author might have been trying to imply that, because white contactees report white aliens, they may have been racists. Sounds like a snark too far to me. SophieWilder 18:22, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
You know, when it's laid out like this I kind of feel stupid for once believing this crap.
Still, reiki and chakras have an awesome ass controllable placebo effect on me, so I will continue using "The energy" until further notice.

Some actual information is needed...
With all do respect ET’s have, indeed, contacted some of the finest minds on the planet. However, too many people still mock and ridicule anyone who even considers that these things are real. Therefore, those "great" minds won't risk tarnishing their pristine reputations by admitting that they have been contacted. It’s worth noting that a few great minds such as Robert Oppenheimer (considered the father of the atomic bomb who later regretted his involvement with the Manhattan Project), and Nikola Tesla (inventor of the alternating current technology that powers our homes and businesses today) have made open statements claiming to have received knowledge from ET’s. Oppenheimer was kept under strict government control throughout his life to ensure he did not disclose too much and Tesla's labs were destroyed (not just shut down) and his patents stolen so that he was bankrupt by the end of his life. No matter how “great” their minds are, we don’t offer these people an open mind when they actually do step forward.
As for the "hicks and morons," comment... Even the most modest of research on the subject will reveal overwhelming evidence to support the claim that we have been/and continue to be visited. Former, high-ranking politicians (Paul Hellyer - the former Canadian Secretary of Defense), former military from all over the world, pilots both military and commercial, as well as countless professionals from the private sector have come forward to share their experiences and knowledge. Hicks and morons? I’m afraid not. This website offers everyone the opportunity to share information. Misinformed and uneducated opinions should be kept to ones self.

- Source, please. Also, just because a former (or sitting) cabinet holds wacky beliefs doesn't mean that these beliefs suddenly become any less wacky. For instance, there have been several cabinet ministers who believed in homeopathy or creationism, but that doesn't mean that these ideas become any more tenable for having support among political officialdom.

Wikipedia is for information, not opinion pieces
The human brain can not understand how these people function, because we are used to a meterialistic world where we need visual proof, which is often false. We seem to believe as humans that anything outside of what we’ve been taught by our scientists, or told that’s what they said must be fact. That’s where these people come in. To snap you out of it. — Unsigned, by: 188.8.131.52 / talk
