DON'T USE THAT RENSE
Jerome Clark, who I do respect, has been criticized recently by some for his per snickety comment that Mac Tonnies (Posthuman Blues blog) term “cryptoterrestrial hypothesis’ is “pretentious.” I agree with that criticism; it did seem huffy, to say the least. But Jerome Clark did say something I appreciated concerning Jeff Rense:The Rense site on UFO Updates.
I haven’t checked out the Rense site in awhile; and I’ve realized I don’t need to. The same kind of information,sans the purple tinted yellow hyperbole, can be found on other sites that don’t stoop to anti-Semitic hysteria, thinly veiled misogynist columnists, and paranoid xenophobic articles.
And Clark is correct in saying that UFO and Fortean studies have always had a taint of anti-Semitism.
