Nope, and to be fair, they make no claim to accuracy, either. They advertise themselves as an "entertainment news" network; entertainment first, news second, only if it doesn't interfere with the...

I've highlighted key words in the above quote. Are you comparing small vs. large or public vs. private? Private schools, small or large are going to wine and dine you better because they are far more...

I wasn't specifically stating that He was. I was just using the logic you began with, taken to its logical conclusion.

Wow, this gives me a great idea for a novel (that I can't start on until I finish up my thesis, drat!).

However, I can answer with a possible solution that won't be in the novel: Suppose that what...

Not that this was necessarily what you (or the other people you mention) saw, but one theory I've read that doesn't get much attention is that these are not craft at all, but some kind of life form...

Or else the story about Satan was a concoction of man to begin with, designed to teach a specific religious lesson, and is not literally true.
