Confirmation Bias!

You go Gal! Good post!



All well and good to quote cutesy psychobabble from the internet or a Google link. Quite another to do a hard investigation, keep records and notes, etc on a suspect. This psychobabble, i.e. trying to write off everything known on KC and Bernie Geestman with a flippant posting like that reminds of a scene from the film E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial:

Quote

Greg: Can't he just beam up?

Elliot: This is reality, Greg.



Reality is hitting the bricks and working...not looking to the internet for generalized answers that really answer nothing. :S

Unfortunately, the cutesy psychobabble was from a peer reviewed research study. It was obtained from the library through Metropolitan State College.

Do you think these terms we are using are pulled out of our ass? No....they were learned from taking four years of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice classes with an emphasis on psychology and victim rights. If I would have linked a YouTube video of an old song would you get it?

That's commendable. But that's all it is. A term. It's a blanket statement, supported by a Google entry, that attempts to explain away a legit investigation with a pithy, non-supported argument using a psychobabble definition from the internet.

Anyone can post a definition of something. But you didn't relate it to anything really specific regarding Kenny Christiansen and Bernie Geestman.

You know what I think? I think some of you over 'there' are just pissed off I decided to cooperate with Geestman's family. I never said I knew KC was the hijacker, or that Geestman was involved. I've made that pretty plain. But I keep working on finding out. Does this threaten you or something? Be honest now.

Are you or 'we' (whomever 'we' is) feel threatened because I decided to hit the bricks again and try to let Geestman's family assist in the investigation? This is not exactly a new thing for them. I said earlier they've been following the case since January 2011, and some of them have been asking the same questions I did. You can quote your pithy stuff and tell me how educated you are. Let me know as soon as you solve the case, something thousands of FBI agents and more than forty years have failed to do.

Around this office, we do things in the real world, actually working and interacting and trying to discover answers. Thank you. :)

Robert,
Once again, you're missing the point. The point is you're seeing what you want to see. Yes, there is a technical term -- confirmation bias -- but the symptoms are something we all see every day. You so want Kenny to be Cooper, every fact is massaged until it fit that story.

But, ok. You don't like psychobabble? How about a story showing how people see what they want to see?

The parents of two brothers - one an incurable pessimist and the other an incurable optimist - took their sons to see a doctor in the hopes of curing the boys of their respective conditions.

The physician started with the young pessimist. He took the boy into a room brimming with a mountain of new toys. "These are all yours," the doctor said. Immediately, the young pessimist burst into tears. "What's wrong?" His parents asked. "If I play with the toys, "the boy sobbed, "surely they will all break and be ruined."

Next, the doctor tried his hand with the young optimist. Instead of toys, the doctor took his patient into a room filled with a mountain of horse dung. "This is for you." The doctor told him. With that, the boy smiled, so wide he could have eaten a banana sideways. Excited, he raced to the top of the mountain of manure, where, with his bare hands, he began digging into the pungent heap. Baffled, the doctor and the parents looked at one another quizzically, "Son," the father asked." What in heaven's name do you think you're doing?" "Well, the boy replied, with all this horse dung, I figure there's got to be a pony in there somewhere!"

Here's an example of bias;
Try to unscramble the code that was found in Duane's wallet (to fit your agenda)
Bomb proof and crowded with oxygen...terrace, volcallure at casa cugat, Abbe wants Cugie gets.

my bias;
I want truce from war with "SL"
Go execute, dog tag, body bag, Dan Cooper at cave.
Scrub base clean

It does work that way!

DUH! Part of clipping that was found in Duane's Wallet that was hidden...but there was also a rifle for sale ad. For some reason this item fasinated Grey - he couldn't get it out of his head. He kept rattling that little tune - it is catchy "What ever Kugie wants Kugie gets."

The only thing familiar about that piece of paper was The Roach Studios as Duane's sister had been involved with a man connected to the Roach Studios. The man had a bomb proof room....something Duane also told me about.

In fact I have another item from the Wallet - the obit on Duane's father and that might make it a little more clear why Duane knew this Mr. Roach.

Duane's sister used to be married to a MR. ROACH - you see the writers miss things...I do not. This was in the OBIT of Duane's father Claudian J. Weber who was a resident of Arcadia, Ca when he died. This was ALSO in the WALLET!

Duane's brother lived in Azusa at the time of his father's death - The yr of death is NOT on this obit, but I am sure I wrote about it before.

Duane's uncle lived in Lake Luzerne, N.Y. and his name was ALLISON....I have been sitting on this - NOW have some fun and you will start to pull the pieces of the puzzle together! His wife had an unusual name, but you guys need to do a little of the work.

Now what do you guys know about the STOW STEAK HOUSE in Munroe Falls. Ohio? SOMETHING ELSE I never talked about nor has the FBI ever mentioned any of this , but they have it ALL!.

The FBI never mentioned a safe deposit box opened Mar (approx) of 1980 in a MID WEST state. A box in the name of John Collins. Duane had retrieved the items from WA on our 1979 trip and made few deposits along the river and then TAHOE.

The FBI never mentioned that John C. Collins owned that BOX and why it was SO important for Duane L. WEBER to obtain a new Drivers license with the name of JOHN C. COLLINS on it. Then he makes his mysterious trip & then there is money available that I did not question...just thought the shop was doing good.

This was right after he started on the machine & he took his friend with him to the Market in Tallassee and left the friend with the set-up and went POOF for 2 days..Left on Thursday eve and did not return until Sat. He needed a wk day in that town that knew him by John Collins...all the FBI had to do was trace his existence as John Collins and they would have found the evidence of that BOX opened in 1980 and closed in 1990. John C. Collins.

REMEMBER the place Duane took me in Mar of 1980 when the money find WAS HOT! He had to bury whatever it was again...only this time he chose a mid west safe deposit box....in the early part of 1980...before he left and went poof for 2 months - I didn't have a contact number for him..

Then in 1990 whe went to retrive it and why he needed the John Collins ID so badly he risked his life & freedom and being found out to obtain it.

The FBI just looked RIGHT thru the proof and it was in the WALLET.

Yo Bobby,

What do you think about Tina saying that she flew NWO routes to Japan for five years after the skyjacking?




Update on Bobby and Tina:


It's been 7 hours since I asked Bobby what he thought of Tina's claim in the Eugene Weekly that she flew NWO routes to Japan for five years after the skyjacking - and no comment back from Prince Bobby. (I'm putting him in the Court of Cooper Royalty.)

Does anyone else know of a seven-hour gap in responses from Bobby? Should I call 9-11 and report a Missing Person?

Or should I just call Investigation Discovery.com and get him on TV that way?

Let me know what y'all think I should do. Don't want to over-react, ya know.

Just saying'.


Update II, 11 pm

It's now 9 hours and still no response from Bobby. Hmmm...maybe I should call his mother? Nah, it's too late. I'll do that tomorrow if he doesn't post by noon Saturday, PT.

Bruce: I decided to post NOW, because tomorrow I am busy finalizing the paperback release of a book we first presented strictly for the Kindle. The reason I didn't answer your posts is simple. Because you are on AB's No-Fly List. This means your messages to us at Dropzone and by email are blocked, and your questions all get the same answer:

Quote

'No Comment'



(You also didn't help your case by bringing my mother into it. Basically, no one here at Adventure Books cares what you write, say, or ask. In fact, we want nothing to do with you anymore. I think that's pretty plain.)

To Everyone Else: As far as the investigation into Bernie Geestman and Kenny Christiansen goes, it continues despite the naysayers. Looking at the odds of being right on any certain suspect are not good, of course. We could be wrong, we understand that. But we're not calling a halt to that investigation until we find out the truth one way or another.

EDIT: And that's it for today. Big day tomorrow and I have barely any time to play some World of Tanks. With this new computer and its killer processor, (Thank you, Fry's) the game is now actually fun. Yes...I do take time out occasionally for fun, believe it or not, although mostly it is the outdoor type, not at a computer. :)

Whew, you're alive. Thank Gawd.

I gather you don't like me very much. Okay. But-

How much you do like the Truth? Do you love Truth more than you love to hate me? Just askin'.


Bottom Line:
What does Tina's claim that she flew NWO routes to Japan mean to your case that KC is DB Cooper?

Greetings Everyone-

I have a general question for anyone who cares to answer.

Now that Tina is talking to reporters, such as the guy at the Eugene Weekly, what will Bobby do?

Will he go down to Oregon and talk with Tina? Ya know, bring his smile and nice manners, knock on her door and talk about Kenny?

What if Bobby then claims that Tina told him that Kenny is definitely DB Cooper?

What would we do????

We don't have any way of corroborating that kind of claim since Tina ain't talking to me, Galen, GG, or anybody else I know who could counter-balance ANY claim made by Bobby.

This could be the Make It or Break It Time for Bob and Skippy.

If they do, we may be on the precipice of the most momentous moment in Norjak history.

Edward R Murrow - where are you when we need you???

You Are There.

And what will Curtis Eng do?

Suppose Bob and Skippy do the above, will Curtis seize the day? Will he make a deal with Bob and Skippy and make them the New Marla? Will Curtis back up the claim from Bobby that Tina says that KC is Cooper?

What if Curtis joins with Bob and Skippy and says that he is 99% sure that KC is Cooper, and have Tina stay mum and in the background as everyone speaks for her?

Suppose Hollywood gets the green light from the FBI on Bob and Skippy as legit, and they make a Big Movie about KC as the True Story of DB Cooper?

Or am I getting ahead of my story?

I need a drink. Wish I could afford a bottle of tequila.

1. Bruce why are you here? Only to hear yourself talk or just to make yourself known.

2. Bill Mitchell is not and will not talk to certain indivuals...he is very private as is the co-pilot at this time. Neither have anything to do with Cooper and all they have had to say has been said.. because what they did say to certain individuals has been twist to make the interviewer or writer sound good.

3. Galen is NOT in communications with the individuals he claims to be.
You know why the phone number GC gave is not the correct number - because GALEN does NOT and has NOT been intouch with Mitchell...other than maybe yrs ago.

Individuals I spoke with over the yrs & some I tried to find are not important - but, I did find & speak to key individuals on that plane. I did not ever get to speak with Florence or Alice. The other crew members I did speak with including the dead - remember I have been at this since 1996.

At this time I would have to go thru all of the old records to tell you the names of those I did speak with.

Jo only started one short thread on the DZ & that one got closed down - mainly because some of the posters thought it was just a joke...& treated it like some of the other threads in other categories.

The second thread I did not start.
Evidently Quade saw reason to give me a place to go - I did NOT ask for it & at that time I did NOT even understand how to navigate the DZ.

The Websleuths never took off & I was spending my time at 101 and Unsolved mysteries. Websleuths I looked at but did not like the format - too difficult. They did make some strides, but got side tracked by others who had their own reason for participation.

My posts had to be long to be heard and yes, I was trying to learn about the skyjacking the only way I could...Yes, I tied a lot of things together that did NOT go together - but all I had was Norjack & Max's book & Ha Ha Ha...I had no sources to build anything on! I came to the DZ to learn & that is what I did.

101 nor Unsolved Mysteries had any real facts and the postings just went NO WHERE. The DZ gave us a format to LEARN & WE did learn - at least most of us did.

Others only came here to hear a story, but those of us who were truely interested in the case & had a personal interest preservered & a lot about the crime never before discussed in the public was revealed & discussed.

The FBI agent over did his participation in this - as he defrayed from stating facts & it became his opinions...& his wanting to make a name for himself...he actually abused his authority...& he did create some misnomers. What he did was NOT right & that was evident.

If he had come here with the purpose of hopefully finding someone who knew secrets - what he did was chase them away. There was 3 individuals who contacted me with information that was very private - and when Ckret showed up - they went POOF!

He also tried to make certain aspects of his opinions appear as fact...HE NEVER investigated one THING I shared & DELIBERATELY ignore certain things I did find & did KNOW....now it is too late to uncover those things. Ckret alone is responsible for my loss of 2 valuable contacts. Both are deceased now.

He was also NOT reporting facts - he was reporting what HE wanted to...WHY did he NOT make the PICS of Duane PUBLIC at that TIME? Answer that question & you should get a birds eye view of the entire picture.

NOT one of you will acknowledge those truths. Remember I pleaded with him for the Jefferson PICS. He also knew my guy was going to go to the prison - & Ckret had to be the reason he was turned away. A lot of money was spent only & when my guy arrived at the prison he was told the file would be released.

When did we see the picture? YRS after Ckret was GONE & Shutter made it available...do any of you remember the long silence in the thread when he posted that pic?

Jo's long posts? Well, I didn't like that myself - but there was no other way to be heard.

Georger never admitted to the thread he & I arranged for the confirmation of the Fitzsimmons discussion. I was the one who had the repore with Galen's brother and I am the one who affirmed the information for Georger.

I was the first on DZ to affront Lyle regarding his interview with Fitzsimmons....as I knew what Lyle had told me as I contacted him regarding his brother - why Blevins just never bothered me...I knew the truth and I got it from the horses mouth....I then yrs later reaffirmed this at the urging of Georger...I played the devil's advocate to get Lyle to repeat what he had told me yrs before.

It was word for word - IT was not GALEN who did this - but Jo. I had shared it with GALEN in a PM & I have the actual PM's in black and white.

Galen uses others & then takes their information for his own & I have the BLACK & WHITE emails to prove it along with a letter he sent me.....yet, some of you seemingly take everything Cook says as the GOD's truth...

They who follow those who only strive to deceive will not find their way out of the forest.

I fear the earth has become a domain were evil and lies and crimes & deception are acceptable. Perhaps the meek will be the lambs who are slaughtered...

Perhaps there is NO way to overcome evil.

As I see the world at this point evil, lies and crimes & those who commit them are the one who rule the earth. There seems to be no reason anymore to strive for justic and peace when the American system has been corrupt for yrs.

The devils are in control now & we will not find our way out of the forest of deception...I have NO faith in society and the American values we once representated.

I give up - there are NO values in telling the truth or standing up for what is right & to stand against what is wrong - now controversary is what motivates - not the knowledge for the truth & to serve justice.

Go get a few jumps from a scary airplane... it will clear the mind of all the fantasies of how dead DB was because he jumped from an airplane. It would do all of you a world of good.

It might be an illusion Amazon. We jump. We socialize with jumpers. We see jumpers as a different breed and better than Whuffos in some respects.

But it doesn't necessarily follow that making someone jump converts them into a person you'd like to hang out with.

Jumpers self select. Those who don't jump (or pursue some analogous high risk sport) are different.

One thing you are definitely right about. Jumping clears the mind. It's like nothing else I've ever experienced. Somehow I don't see World of Tanks doing the same thing but maybe I should try it. I'll do it if Blevins will make just one AFF jump. Or even an S/L jump.

Static line jumps always scared me. Too low. Too much ground detail visible at exit.

Oh I know that.. seriously.
I don't know about you but I think some of the "Cooper Royalty" are too whacked up in the head for me to even want to be in the same zip code with them.:S:S

Amazon,

I like having whacked neighbors. Keeps the hood from getting too snooty. ;)

I live in a neighborhood full of expensive homes but we have a couple of eccentrics who bought 40 or more years ago when it was cheap. These old codgers haven't done any maintenance, have old dormant cars in their driveway, massively overgrown vegetation and peeling paint. My neighbors are pissed and have pushed the city to cite them. In one case they succeeded and the city cleared out all the vegetation as a fire hazard, billed the home owner and will put a lien on his property when he doesn't pay it.

I found out that these same neighbors were trying to get me cited for the beautiful rotating ham radio antenna that Snowmman built for me. They failed. So now I'll put up an even larger one just to spite them, if I can get Snow's help.

I say leave these eccentric folks alone. Me included.

You might check into the zip codes on Pluto or somewhere beyond there. I understand that there are some lovely views out there.

But frankly my dear, my guess is that your problem originates from not wearing a helmet when you are in a wind tunnel. It only takes a few head first flights into the tunnel wall to rearrange one's attitude about some things.

I think you're safe, Miss Amazona. I'm 98328. I think I'm even in a different Area Code - 360.

Tell ya what - I'll jump outta an airplane with you one day, but only to soar with my levitative abilities.

As for some of 377's neighbors, I met some when I was in town looking for Petey. My kind of people. I was thinking of moving in, actually.

I'm not afraid to try it. Once you've been washed out into the Pacific Ocean for a few days in a leaky rubber boat and then return to shore via heavy surf and rocks...nothing much scares you after that. That happened off the NW tip of the Olympic Peninsula. No supplies, no water, (all washed over by a rogue wave) for three nights. And no commercial or pleasure craft traffic. I thought I was heading for Japan for sure. B| Fortunately, the wind changed to an onshore wind on the third day. I plotted my course later like this: 1) Blown out to sea about five miles west of Ozette Island. 2) Headed west and occasionally south. 3) Washed back to shore at Sand Point. See map...:|

Jumping: I would probably pull as soon as I was stable, though. What is AFF? (Never mind...I looked it up. 'Accelerated Freefall Training'.)

EDIT: When I got back to the parking lot and reported in to the rangers, they went down to the beach and tried to locate my backpack, since it had washed out of the boat less than a mile from shore. They found only a Tupperware container that had been stuffed into the top of the pack. Inside were my truck keys, my wallet, and a small .22 pistol I carried for protection. They kept the gun and returned the rest. I got a lecture about carrying weapons in a National Park, something I never did again. I didn't argue about it. I just put my tail between my legs and went home. [:/]

I used to live on San Gabriel st in Azusa in 1980- small world!
I think in that context cugie might be short for Cucamunga (sp)? blvd.



Explain since I know little about Ca.

I was only there ONE time and that was for my husband's proton radiation at Loma Linda.

What was Azusa like in 1950's and up until 1980? ....just curious.
