Are You Qualified?

I can’t help myself; I’m fascinated by the churnings of the pathological skeptic mind. I’m talking the Philip Klass School of “Skepticism” not the mild mannered, proper skepticism.

The kind of skepticism (maybe scientism, or scientific fascism might be more accurate) that’s given us such explanations/theories for the unexplained as owls and mating hedgehogs. The kind of disingenuous skepticism that insists that when we’re talking about UFOs, (which everyone knows don’t exist anyway) (even though people report seeing UFOs every day) (but they’re wrong, since they don’t exist, people just think they do) we’re really talking about aliens.

One of these chronic pathological skeptics is James Mcgaha, who’s appeared twice (that I know of) on the Larry King show. Mcgaha’s most recent appearance was January 18, 2008 for the UFOS: Questions & Controversy King program about the recent UFO sightings in Texas.

There was a lot wrong with what Mcgaha had to say -- okay, everything he said was wrong. But the following exchange is what both irritated the hell out of me and made me laugh at the same time. One of the UFO witnesses describes her sighting of a mile long craft above her house:

MCGAHA: How do you know they were connected.

WATSON: Because we looked up and you couldn't see stars through it. That's why I was like, wow.

MCGAHA: Are you qualified to look at the sky at night.

WATSON: I'm not.

Are you qualified to look at the sky at night?! Are you seriously serious?!
