On Wednesday afternoon, the European Space Agency made galactic history when their Rosetta Mission successful landed its Philae probe on a speeding comet, the first time such an extraordinary feat has been achieved.
As with everything from the moon landing to the death of Elvis, an alternative version of what really happened as the Philae probe landed on comet 67P did not take long to emerge.
According to an email published on the website UFOSightingsDaily.com — which does a regular trade in alien sightings — this mission is part of a European Space Agency and Nasa cover-up to disguise the comet’s true alien nature. The email, allegedly from a secret whistle-blowing employee of the ESA, accuses the agency of blatant cover-ups in wanting to land on the speeding comet and attaches photos which claim to reveal the true inner workings of Comet 67P.
It states: Do not think for ONE MOMENT that a space agency would suddenly decide to spend billions of dollars to build and send a spacecraft on a 12-year journey to simply take some close-up images of a randomly picked out comet floating in space.
Comet 67P is NOT a comet, the letter continues. Some 20 years ago Nasa began detecting radio bursts from an unknown origin out in space. It would later be known that these had likely come from the direction of the now named comet 67P. It does show signs on its outside of machine like parts and unnatural terrain.
Ending on an ominous note, it adds: Whatever this object is, it did not ask to be found or scrutinised.
Commenting on the article, contributor Scott Waring also said he believed the signals being emitted from the comet were a greeting to humans. If it was a warning, they would not allow the ESA craft to have landed he wrote. I believe the landing of the ESA craft was the equivalent of a first handshake. They will make another move soon probably. Alien structures are on the comet. I don’t believe it’s natural.
Yet this is far from the only extra-terrestrial conspiracy theory put forward about 67P and the ESA mission. In September, BPEarthWatch published a video showing brand new, hi-res images. Taken from the Rosetta spacecraft, they appeared to show two UFOs flying over the comet and a transmission tower-like structure built on the surface, potentially emitting the mysterious radio signals which have been picked by the ESA. These images are not normal, says the video voiceover.
ESA’s confirmation that the comet had been emitting a mystery song has fuelled theories that it is in fact an alien ship and the warbling is an extra-terrestrial attempt at communication.
Writing on the website UFOSightingsDaily.com, Scott Waring professed that: In my opinion this is not a code. It is how a species of aliens communicate to one another without speaking. A form of telepathy put into primitive radio signals. Its the only way this species can communicate to us. This is their thoughts. They don’t talk.
Waring added: Getting a copy of the full message and then translating it should be of utter importance. Is it a message of greetings? Or is it a warning of what’s to come? We, the people of the world, need to find out.

So many nutters around at the moment...
Spot the difference: Female world leaders 'Photoshopped' out of Paris rally picture
An Israeli newspaper has been criticised for allegedly editing Angela Merkel and other women from a line-up of 40 world leaders, photographed in Paris on Sunday
Israeli newspaper The Announcer (HaMevaser) — a conservative orthodox Jewish publication- stands accused of Photoshopping women out of the picture.
The women seemingly removed are German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and EU foreign affairs and security chief Frederica Mogherini. Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt has been cropped, so that only her hand remains in shot, on the picture’s far left.
In 2011, New York paper Di Tzeitung removed Hillary Clinton (then Secretary of State) from the famous White House situation room image, taken during the mission to kills Osama bin Laden It was forced to apologise, after claiming it was editorial policy not to publish pictures of women on the grounds of ‘modesty’.

Re: Kevin Swanson
Mum is mum is mum. (Except when is doesn't mater ;-)
I'd sort of accept maybe a shortening of the 'u' and exageration of the 'm' for a northerner - mumm - just, but I doubt a Canadian would notice.
But book and look and cook - as in 'the cuwk tuwk a luwk in the cuwkery buwk' - is quite distinctive.
A Northerner has a bath while a southerner has a barth. A northerner sits on the grass while a southerner sits on the grars. Strangely, both sit on their respective arses.

I spent 15 minutes over at Evoution Fairy Tales - a site I was banned from without warning or explanation after half a dozen posts a couple of years ago. I see Mike the Wiz is cock of the roost over there where his logical loonacies go uncorrected.
Anyhoo, this post caught my eye amongst the multifarious madness. This guy is apparently a thearpist. The post was, of course, typed in large bold print, double spaced, I'll save you from that but the spelling is what it is.
quote:
In many cases believing in evolution is like fiddling while Rome burns. Evo is a diversion--a ruse to concfuse people as to the most common cause of human distubance and dysfunction. The philosophical spin off of evolution is the power of "it".
In the Bible God says he gave us dominion over the environment. Evolution claims just the opposite--that the einvironment caused us and our disturbaances also. "It' made me mad etc. Instead of I made myself mad over it.
As a therapist for the last 35 years I have been explaining that external events and circumstance do not cause our disurbance but the tree of good and evil in the midst of the conemporaary garden of eden our mind.
The theeoy of Evolution is a ridiculous concept created by a tree of good and evil called Charles Darwin.
Unless there is pathology, the only thing that can disturb us is our own mind!--the deception Adam & Eve fell victim to in the orignal Garden of Eden when they ate of Satan's tree (a mixture o good and evil)
Thik about this.

You think they can't hack the code that turns the light on and off?
The most obvious thing wrong with most early 'internet of things' was/is that they often don't contain any protection from external entry - the absolute minimum must be a user changeable username and password.
