Can You Speak Venusian?

Can You Speak Venusian?

(3:38) Interview with multi-linguist who can speak three space languages. In 1973 self-taught astronomer Patrick Moore published "Can You Speak Venusian?", a book where he ponders over theories by flat earthers, crystal gazers, channellers and other crackpot ideas. This clip from 1969 is presumably part of Moore's research for the book.

Seems legit to me. Can't disprove him so it must be true -- just like god, the easter bunny, and tooth fairy.

Dear old Patrick Moore - so respectful in the face of such nonsense. Oh, and Plutonian sounded a bit Welsh to me.

This is glossolalia, or speaking in tongues.

I also can speak venusian, so this is true. They could not make 1969 as they had a tea party with Earl Grey as they like bergamot. They also had strawberries and Stilton.

Well, it would be "fun" to have him translate a specific sentense into "venusian" and then have him repeat this the day after. Logic seems to dictate that it would sound similar, right? ..which I find extremely unlikely that it does.

Ha, that would be a good test. Wonder if he could find an excuse like saying it's a separate dialect. Or, you can say it in different ways like "I used a credit card to make that purchase" versus "That purchase was made using my credit card."
