It’s not just that Korea Times has published this laughable fantasy about “Alien Spaceships To Attack Earth” (note the prediction dodge), but that it republished a story that just won’t die.
“Three giant spaceships are heading toward Earth. The largest one of them is 200 miles wide. Two others are slightly smaller. At present, the objects are just moving past Jupiter. Judging by their speed, they should be on Earth by the fall of 2012,” said John Malley, the lead extraterrestrial expert at SETI.
Three similar giant ships landed in China and the Indonesia Sea in November 2011. They were identified as alien spaceships from Planet Gootan.
Weekly World News has at least published this crap once before, in October, 2011 (note how that failed prediction is repackaged). John Malley is a fictional person, and Wikileaks has better things to do with its time than chase spaceships.
On a serious note, though, Brian Dunning and George Kenney have both addressed the UFO issue on their respective podcasts. If this KT/WWN fraud has truly excited a skeptical nerve in your brain, I recommend both.
Me? Frankly, I hope there aren’t any life forms out there.
