silence

I have no interest at all in the newly released Roswell slides. No further commentary.

Indeed. I wish more people would copy and paste your comment regarding any number of topics out there.

I think you really need to look into this…………

Me: Hey Mike, I have some really interesting slides I'd like you to see.

Mike: Great can I see them?

Me: Erm. No, not really. I'll tell you what, I'll show you them if you'll come to this party I'm holding at a 10,000 seat arena.

Mike: Erm. Oh OK. What's the idea?

Me: Well these are so important that I'm going to reveal them to anyone that pays $1200 a seat and if they can't make it then $20 pay per view. Are you in?



This scenario is acceptable in modern ufology? Are you trying to tell me that this was in any way seen as acceptable to the researchers involved?

The cult of the UFO enthusiast will never be seen by the outside world as anything more than exactly what it has become until we can do a lot better than all of this.

Meanwhile, many people continue to have bizarre, scary and traumatic experiences that they want answers to... whilst many people involved in this are simply clever opportunists, career oriented egomaniacs (who are probably unemployable in any other profession), scam artists or just full of utter bullshit.

You have displayed some important characteristics in your (lack of) commentary here.

Contemplate, be still, observe, think. (Yes, the owls can probably teach us a thing or two in all of this).

As I said last year as I headed for my bunker: Ufology is a circus and, in it's current form, must adapt or die if it is to ever move forward or be taken seriously in our wider culture.

I am trying to do the hard work. There is a mystery at play, pull on whatever threads might reveal some deeper clue no matter how weird.

Mike –

I have to confess that I was the “model” used for those slides. The ad said that they were looking for a Caucasian male of at least age 60 with a hat size of 7 or greater. I had no idea that they would make me look like that.

They did not have my permission to do this and I have never been to Mexico (although I was able to see it from Kitt Peak, once).

Smart man Mike. Period.

The slides fiasco has given way to a rather interesting development: The joining forces of people in both the hardcore skeptic camp and the pro-UFO field, working openly together in order to bring light to a particular case.

True, that kind of approach would probably not be of much use within the kind of 'personal experience' research you are conducting with the owls, Mike. Then again it could be of some help in some aspects, I don't know.

I'm not interested in the Roswell slides discussion, as much as the 'let's try to do things differently from now on' discussion ;)

I wonder why someone would even go that path. Faking pictures that is. What´s the objective? Make people believe in it? And what´s that worth? To believe something is real?
