You mean 2.5 years long?

I first rebutted his bogus claims about the rifle purchase at least that long ago.

All he needs is a top hat and tails to continue his song and dance routine for another 2.5 years.

EDIT: If he's parodying an inept CT, he's doing a great job. Otherwise, not so much.

My sources tell me he's going to make a come back as a hollow earth enthusiast and will work tirelessly to make the Mole people accepted in today's anti-hollow society.

No doubt he'll follow the same methodology: post claims and tell others to prove him wrong.

Once I rebutted his claims as noted above, he tried to stay as far away from a rebuttal as possible, even going so far as telling another poster (Sandy McCroskey) "I'm not debating 'Hank', I am debating YOU and if you think 'Hank' has a good argument for anything, quote it and I'd be happy to respond."

http://www.internationalskeptics.com...9#post11042009

As always setting up absurd conditions for his response and either ignoring the response or asking anyone challenging his assertion to jump through hoops.

He never did attempt to support his assertions about Oswald's purchase of the rifle.

Hank

Will John Agar lead a search for the Mole people, again?

Remember the old adage: "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public".

Marrs is exhibit 1 in the argument in favor of that adage.

Is that the same Steve Pieczenik who co-wrote Tom Clancy's "Op Center" series with Jeff Rovin?

The very same. Fiction is his long suit.
