    Evan:

    I know this should probably be taken as just a lighthearted post, but I am compelled to argue against your point that it is up to us to decide what George Lucus really thinks about the Mayan calendar nonsense. When presented with the available evidence, especially in the context of evaluating a far-out claim, it is indeed our prerogative to make our best judgement as to the validity of said claim, based on the evidence and prior plausibility. But I think we cross a line when we presume to decide what someone else thinks, especially when the evidence is weak, as in this case.

    On the other hand, I could be playing the role of Seth Rogen in your story, unable to discern whether the storyteller is more serious or more with tongue in cheek, in which case you got me (this time).

    By the way, did you catch the Mythbusters episode with Seth and the MB gang taking on various scenarios from The Green Hornet? It’s worth watching, if mainly for its destruction value.

  • Hi Jim,

    Lighthearted, yes. My asking a rhetorical question at the end and borrowing a famous media phrase to answer is mostly tongue-in-cheek.

    I get your main point. Sure I am speculating based on incomplete evidence. But this is not a scientific experiment, it is an opinion piece and these are my observations.

    I should ammend the post to point out that there are more options than just Rogan’s story versus Lucas’ explanation.

    Yes I saw most of the Green Hornet Mythbusters episode. I heard the movie sucked though. If only Lucas had directed it …
