Greetings,
Mr. M. Great video which opens a whole different line of thought. Interesting that the clovis point occurs in both Europe AND North America. Could be an Asian connection here. Clovis manufactured in China and sold through Wally-Mart world wide. So how do the aliens/Atlantians fit into the whole scheme of things?
Mr. RickB. Not necessarily divine intervention. Probably galley down with twins and the ORIGINAL Rocna....

Hard to say. Think about how far we've progressed technologically in the last two hundred years, then contemplate another species from another planet with a one million year head start compared to us. You just never know...

I always thought Mackenzie got the short end of the historical stick, crossing the continent a decade before Lewis and Clark. Obviously, L and C had the better PR machine and those were far different times . . . which, I suppose, is how Mackenzie--approaching 50--got away with marrying a 14-year-old . What I've really got against him is that his clan usurped one of my clan's castles in Scotland. Castle Leod - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Greetings,
Mr. M. Really just a rhetorical question re: aliens. Edward Snowden tells all....
Farsnews
You must realize this only deals with RECENT alien intervention (since 1945).

Canadian's, as a rule, aren't big on flag waving or making heros.

Murray, I trust you're joking! In the part of Canada I'm originally from, Ontario, there are more flags per capita and national identity on display than anywhere I've ever been.

Pfffttt....

The Alterrans flew the whole city to the Pegasus galaxy millions of years ago and didn't even have the courtesy to leave behind a warning about the Ori.

I half agree. Certainly here in the west we are not big flag wavers (except during playoffs) but we do make heros; we just don't trumpet them to the skies. We are, after all, Canadian.

Start in Windsor, Ontario, drive through London, Brantford, Hamilton and Toronto and count the flags flying in every town and in the yards of country homes. It's noticeable and kind of heartwarming.

With the possible exception of Gretsky.

Ok I counted 4. I've driven more parts of Ontario than I care to remember. It has always bothered me that we Canadians don't fly our flags more. Try driving down US501 through Dillon or Conway. Or try the PCH through Oregon or US50 through Louisiana. There are more houses/businesses with the US flag flying than there is without. I have yet to see them flown anywhere near that level in this country.

Just. Say'n...

Not intending to hijack this thread but are you by chance referring to Stargate lore?
I spent fifteen years working for MGM on that franchise, started on the pilot episode and stayed on until they pulled the plug on SG Universe. - Boyd

Made a trip through Quebec and Ontario last fall. Canadian and Quebec flags everywhere! Nothing wrong with being proud of your flag, and it was very evident of that trip on the trip.

Keep looking and counting, you'll find them. Hell, there's even one in your avatar, isn't there!

Just think. If the Canadian trans-continental railroad wasn't built when it was, British Columbia and possibly other western provinces would probably be part of the USA by their own choice.

You know, before Prime Minister Harper's dictatorial grasp on Canadian democracy I would never have considered that idea, but the way things are going now...

Indeed. Undomesticated Equines could not keep me away from every new episode.
