It is not a question of Paulsen's claims versus my claims. It is Paulsen's claims against virtually the entire world.
Why should your claims that Norman is wrong be taken any more seriously than his claims that he is right?
Because Paulsen's claims are preposterous and are not supported by any valid evidence.
As an example we can look at Paulsen's memories and visions of the continents of Mu and Atlantis being destroyed by impacts with planetoids. According to Paulsen the entire continent of Atlantis was destroyed just 12,000 years ago by an impact from a giant planetoid. Such an impact should have left overwhelming evidence.
Some scientists believe that an impact may have been responsible for the extinction of the dinasours along with most species of land life living 65 million years ago. See for example this site where the theory is put forward that a known impact crater could have been caused by the asteroid which was responsible for that event. Whether this theory is true or not is irrelevant, the fact is that such a giant impact would have huge consequences across the entire planet. The impact which Paulsen claims destroyed Atlantis was far larger that the impact in Mexico. Such a collision would probably have wiped out most life on earth. The very fact that we are here now suggests that Paulsen is wrong. Furthermore the impact would have created dust clouds across the earth which could be detected today in the records of lake sediment and polar ice. The evidence should be overwhelming, but it is just not there.
Additionally there is good scientific evidence to support the current theory that The Americas were once joined with Africa and Europe in a giant continent, but have been drifting apart for millions of years. This may only be a theory, but it is one supported by the evidence. It is not reasonable to reject it simply on the basis of one man's visions.
The same can be said of many of Paulsen's other claims. The overwhelming evidence supports the view that Paulsen is a fraud (or madman). If Paulsen really is in touch with these extraterrestrials then he should offer to take a team of scientists on a trip to Jupiter in his alien friends spacecrafts. If a respectable team of scientists can attest to such a journey, and provide evidence which can be tested (video's, test measurements etc.) then maybe his claims can be taken seriously. Until then the reasonable position is to assume that his claims are false.
