No, it is Tallitot way of not answering my questions in a previous thread. Plus a little bit of mockery.

I was a bit iffy on alien abduction...but I figure that the fact that they're unproved phenomena is evidnece enough for their existence AND for a government cover-up.

So I guess, based on those criteria, that this ends your objection to belief in God, too? ;)

Why not...but I think since I've already given into the alien abduction thing as the basis of my belief I'm going with Raëlism this time around. ;)

I personally see this endeavor as both a mockery of this forum and a waste of bandwith.  >:(
