Re: Aliens?

What if he were telepathic?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Aliens?

Then it wouldn't have taken him a week to sort everything out. And it would be very very easy, whereas he said he did have difficulties. Also, someone who posseses the power of telepathy would already be trying to get rich.

Re: Aliens?

I think we are. He would maybe even be labeled as mad if it was to be revealed that he was telepathic.

Re: Aliens?

His information is not correct. There is a small chance he is a new source. But it is very, very small.

I don't know. Seems to me Calligar was playing (intentionally and admittedly) a devil's advocate.

Re: Aliens?

No, no. I have nothing against it. We were tossing a few good arguments there. The you said that he (the alien guy) might be telepathic...

Either way, it doesn't matter anymore. The guy is a loony, anyways.

Re: Aliens?

I thought we were talking about an alien. Most of them are telepathic.

The only extraordinary ability he has is the ability to spot how to make a dollar.

Re: Aliens?

Hmm...interesting arguments...I don't know, I feel this was never meant to be argued seriously, so I give up.  Sorry for taking things too seriously (unfortunately, I'm a very serious person).

Though, I am curious in asking one other thing, bobbym talking about the aliens being telepathic, couldn't that work too?

Re: Aliens?

Hi;

Work for what? Their telepathic abilities are used primarily to control humans. The reticulans have not even bothered to learn any of our languages.

Re: Aliens?

Well to clarify, what I mean by work is that it can prove the possibility (how ever slim) that the guy is not lying.  As for these "reticulans" you are referring to, you think that if there is any truth to any of this, that they are the ones involved?  (Sorry, I am honestly not to sure what you mean by reticulans, only assuming...)

Re: Aliens?
