Re: the TRUTH

Katherine Kurts had a cute little play on words relating to this
matter-- something like "the lack of evidence does not mean the lack
of existence"    If she is lurking, I respectfully ask her to re-post
her remark as it fits this topic quite well.

I agree with Tim that we must stick with the facts and not rely on
speculation.  Where we are lacking knowledge, we should, as I think
Steve is saying, continue to search and  use speculation as a pointer
in our investigation.  The lack of knowledge is a poor excuse to end
intelligent inquiry, but the blind reliance on speculation is likewise
a poor substitute for the truth.

Mr. Wallace-Murphy recommends we "fantasist(s)" stop entertaining
ourselves with what might have happened and adhere to the facts that
are known. My question to Mr. Wallace-Murphy is this - What do you
suppose motivates us to go out and seek those truths that are not yet
known? I suggest it's the possibilities, the fantasies that we want to
prove. If we adhere only to what's known, and adhere only to a path of
what's already been discovered, I suggest we'd never learn anything

So let's ask ourselves - If something is not proven, can it have
existed? .
