Just as the aftermath of the appearance of complex life was uninteresting from a biochemical perspective, as the amazingly diverse energy-generation strategies of archaea and bacteria were almost totally abandoned in favor of aerobic respiration, biological solutions to the problems that complex life presented were greatest during the Cambrian Explosion, and everything transpiring since then has been relatively insignificant. �Animals would never see that level of innovation again. �While investigating those eonic changes, many scientists have realized that the dynamics of those times might have been quite different from today�s, as once again Lyell�s uniformitarianism may be of limited use for explaining what happened. [196] � Also, scientists generally use a rule-of-thumb called Occam�s Razor, or parsimony, which states that with all else being equal, simpler theories are preferred.� Karl Popper, a seminal theorist regarding the scientific method, preferred simpler theories as they were easier to falsify. �However, this issue presents many problems, and in recent times, theories of mass extinction or speciation have invoked numerous interacting dynamics.� E instein noted that the more elegant and impressive the math used to support a theory, the less likely the theory depicted reality.� Occam�s Razor has also become an unfortunate dogma in various circles, particularly organized skepticism, in which the assumptions of materialism and establishment science are defended, and often quite irrationally. �Simplicity and complexity have been seesawing over the course of scientific history as fundamental principles. �The recent trend toward multidisciplinary syntheses has been generally making hypotheses more complex and difficult to test, although scientists� improving toolset and ever-increasing and more precise data makes the task more feasible than ever, at least situations in which vested interests are not interfering.

Although the European colonial occupation of Egypt destroyed a significant portion of the country's historical legacy, some foreigners had more positive results. It has been recently pointed out that the brevity of the inscriptions is unparalleled in any known premodern literate society, including those that wrote extensively on leaves, bark, wood, cloth, wax, animal skins, and other perishable materials. Twelve years later, the Indians, alarmed as the English settlements kept growing in numbers, apparently decided to try to wipe them out for good.

For all religions are believed by their adherents to be revelatory, hence not a truth, but the truth. Excavations have revealed frescoes, statues, and pottery. Write to Us with your questions or thoughts. I dismounted at once and met him on foot. There is also a three-ring circus of disinformation around the UFO/ET issue, purveyed by numerous parties for various agendas, including the world�s national security states, especially the USA�s.� I take most �insider� revelations with a grain of salt unless they are well-documented, as the �inside� generates a great deal of disinformation, and even documentation allegedly from the "inside" is a very mixed bag.� Also, attention-seekers pretend to be insiders, and many other distractions beckon.� In the milieu are hyperventilating conspiracists and stalwart establishment defenders; many such defenders are na�ve, dishonest, or both.� Serious and often professional investigators are in the mix, as well as an easily misled public, among other parties to the pandemonium.� Consequently, many do not seriously contemplate the situation, which is understandable.� I went to see UFOs for myself and was not disappointed .� A similar situation surrounds the FE milieu.� There seems to be a method to the madness, however, and the GCs have helped orchestrate the confusion, to their benefit.� There are a few ways to try avoiding those minefields.� One is to obtain direct personal experience with UFOs/ETs, another is to be close to key players in the field, and another is to spend a great deal of time digesting and testing the evidence.� I have taken all three approaches, and all of the chaos aside, my pe rception in 2014 is that the reason for the UFO/ET cover-up has little or nothing to do with fear of a War of the Worlds reaction, which Eisenhower might have rightly feared in the 1950s, but most Americans today believe that we are not alone in the universe or are open to the idea .� The real reason is to suppress exotic technologies that would end ultra-elite rule on Earth if they became publicly available.� Their rule would end for two reasons, the first of which is that FE and antigravity technologies would radically transform human civilization in ways that fictional TV shows such as Star Trek partially depict, as humanity would live in true economic abundance for the first time.� People living in scarcity are easily manipulated, but people living in abundance would not be.� The second reason is that few humans would have much obedience to obviously corrupt Earth-based institutions, particularly draconian and violent ones, when it became accepted that humans are simply one of many sentient species in our galaxy and that we are not particularly advanced at all; we are more like cavemen than distinguished members of galactic society.

I, on the contrary, made an involuntary movement before I, too, became as still as death. Mass spectr ometers measure the mass of atoms and molecules, and have become increasingly refined since they were first invented in the 19th century .� Today, samples that can only be seen with microscopes can be tested and measured down to a billionth of a gram. [3] � Elements have different numbers of protons and neutrons in the nuclei of their atoms, and each nuclear variation of an element is called an isotope .� Unstable isotopes decay into smaller elements (also called � daughter isotopes �).� Scientific investigations have determined that radioactive decay rates are quite stable and are primarily governed by the dynamics in a decaying atom.� The dates determined by radioactive dating have been correlated to other observed processes and the data has become increasingly robust over the years. [4] The ability to weigh various isotopes, at increasing levels of precision, with mass spectrometers has provided a gold mine of data.� Scientists are continually inventing new methods and ways to use them, new questions are asked and answered, and some examples of methods and findings follow.
