Reality bites, eh?
This was no hoax. His concluding statement was dripping with cynicism, in anticipation of the tom-shillery he knew would follow.
One of the trickiest problems of our modern age is the abject failure of intellectual symmetry.
Rational discussion cannot exist inside closed arenas, where truth lies contrary to their very existence.
Industry does not 'worry' itself with reality...it simply employs people to invent a 'reality' to fit its needs.
Should truth manage to rise to the surface, an immediate campaign is waged to counter it, sometimes by employing diversionary tactics until the 'danger' of exposure has passed.
Ironically, one of their greatest assets is man's ability to believe lies that come wrapped as truth. Man feels especially pleased with himself when he 'knows' he won't allow himself to be fooled. Unfortunately, man can be a lazy beast, happy to let others do his thinking for him. His self-satisfaction lies in the very 'fact' that he 'knows' more than the average joe.
As long as the machine tells him to be on the alert for 'real dangers' he will ignore the naysayers that aim to stop human progress. In fact, he will be poised to mock them when necessary, in testament to his 'greater' intellectual knowledge. What an oxymoran!
Man has unwittingly learned to play the game well.
Truth be told, truth need not be buried too deeply, for even the shallowest exposure tends to lie there unseen, ignored, or, simply reburied.
So, what Jeff Wefferson was really saying was 'go ahead, debunk me if you want, but, ignoring the truth doesn't make it any less true.'
I appreciate this thread, even though it led me down a two hour rabbit hole.

Jeff ended with this: "And be sure to vote for Mitrack Obamney because THIS REALLY MATTERS." In the astute words of Pete Townsend: "Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss."
the gears keep on revolving in perpetual motion...
No matter what we are facing, we have no choice but to keep moving forward. I'll follow Pete Townsend's lead: smile and grin at the change all around me, then, pick up my guitar and play...
