It is on the same level of ridiculousness as

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

The saucer weren't on it's own dummy, it happened in a tourist cafe place in Rochester Kent in England. We had tea, there was cups and a saucer with it.

The saucer shook for some reason you're not aware of in a place you're not exactly familiar with enough to know all its ins and outs. Therefore ... ?

You're wrong, I know enough about that place, I go there my whole life. The saucer didn't just shook, it moved slighty and then moved from the middle to the other side, it glide.

What does that have to do with life after death, or with gods? Help me understand how you get from a gliding bowl, to that.

Apologies.

It glided. Saucers can glide. And due to non-ghost factors that you may not be aware of.

When it can grow wings and fly freely about, and it really happened, then we have something to talk about. Even then, you still need to investigate properly what's going on. Might be some weird technology designer is playing a prank.
"Our attitudes towards things like race or gender operate on two levels. First of all, we have our conscious attitudes. This is what we choose to believe. These are our stated values, which we use to direct our behavior deliberately ... But the IAT [Implicit Association Test] measures something else. It measures our second level of attitude, our racial attitude on an unconscious level - the immediate, automatic associations that tumble out before we've even had time to think. We don't deliberately choose our unconscious attitudes. And ... we may not even be aware of them. The giant computer that is our unconscious silently crunches all the data it can from the experiences we've had, the people we've met, the lessons we've learned, the books we've read, the movies we've seen, and so on, and it forms an opinion." - Malcolm Gladwell

I'm reminded about the hucksters in India, going from village to village conning innocent townsfolk in exchange for "favors".

Here's a demonstration:




Most of them are just innocuous enough, just street performers - but it has been used by more scrupulous people.
