    I've been following these forums for quite some time and I notice some of the listeners circle the wagons around Ben every time someone makes an even slightly negative comment about the show. Although I can understand your responses (given your last name I'm assuming you're related to Ben), but all I'm saying is there's no need to immediately jump on anyone (like Brian) that happens to have some constructive criticism for the show. That's how shows get better. By doing this point-counterpoint thing all the time, there's a good chance some new show listeners could get scared off (particularly when they see your last name!).

    I hate the type of stories like the one about the transgender “witchboy”. These stories are spread by Right -Wing Witch Hunters to use as an excuse to attack the indigenous cultures of their enemies, as seen in the url I posted below. The usual scapegoats are women, queer folk, and children. Any easy pray.

    And in regards to the Catholic Church, i would never use the “progressive” in regards to their policies as they are horrible offenders in many human rights cases. I know Ben, like myself, is not a fan of Richard Dawkins (he did help Doug Adams script fun Doctor Who episodes) but maybe you should examine his main detractors especially in regards to the P2 Banking Scandal in Italy years back.

    If Wikipedia is to be further believed, it's no coincidence that it sounds like the writings of Zecharia Sitchin. The article on Michael Tellinger says that he's written several books as “the result of a 25-year obsession with Zecharia Sitchin”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Tellinger#

    Hey guys, just wanted to say this was another great episode. When MU was off the internet, I looked around for other paranormal-related podcasts to listen to, but I didn't enjoy any of them quite as much. I guess it's your combination of sound quality, diverse stories, and positive attitude. It seems like a lot of people who report on the paranormal have a tendency to become bitter and cynical over time… maybe due to the cumulative effects of multiple cursed European antique boxes? ;)

    Anyway, I'm a pretty hardcore skeptic myself, but I love hearing all the far-out ideas on MU. Even if they seem ridiculously far-fetched sometimes (remote-viewing humanoid civilizations under the surface of Mars?), they get my imagination firing. Keep up the good work!

    This was a really great episode! I especially loved the artical about the 200,000 yo metropolis in South Africa. I'm not sure why, but the ancient civilization/alternative ancient history stories always get me super excited! Keep up the good work.

    When talking about how there could have been past advanced civilizations , one host suggested that even our current culture could be wiped away in a matter of hundreds or thousands of years. But you're forgetting one big factor that separates our civilization from past ones– OIL! Our structure mainly based on petroleum products which do not degrade, so although buildings and metal items may decay, there will likely be a lot of plastic junk around for ages.
    However, that could be the reason we dont see obvious evidence of ancient advanced cultures- because they built from materials that decomposed.

    A day after I listened to the divot box episode I had to be admitted into the hospital. And NO, the episode wasn't the cause. But the both of us thought it was rad.
