It hurts to read that most of us have no credibility. But, Freedom to say what one chooses is an important thing.
So much that is said is wrong, though. I read today (on a Flame-Wars Blog) that it is known I am "behind " SERPO and "Many other Scams over the years."
Not true, actually. I have never been part or accomplice of a single UFO scam, and have tried to expose the scammers. True, some of my "friends" have been involved, but I didn't know it until this past year. Truth. That says more about my gullibility than it does my credibility...in my personal opijnion.
Dr Green...Thank-you for posting your views , it is much appreciated.
UFO scams on the internet seem to abound. The mainstream media treats the subject with little regard, although the subject of the recent press conference was covered fairly for the most part.
Most theories of the widespread disinfo campaign perpetrated upon the American people seem to focus on the coverup....what, who, why.
What? Cover stories for Black projects? Probably
Who? Who cares
Why? See black projects.
Do Black projects explain the totality of the phenomena?
I don't believe it does
While most agree we are being visited, there are such a wide range of fantasy/reality theories how does a rational man know what to believe?
Should a rational man ignore the phenomena all together?
You seem to be a rational man, I think.
You are not exactly ignoring the UFO question, are you?
Is it purely professional research wrt the psychological aspects on your part?
Could the wide range of fantasy/reality UFO/Alien myths be generated to lessen the emotional/panic impact of the disclosure event?
When some type of official semi-disclosure is made, most of the population simply wont believe due to the years of fantasy disinfo?
Most of the opinions of Serpo that I have read suggest the fantasy of the story.
Does your opinion differ from the consensus?
What might be the most overlooked part of the story, in your opinion?
Sorry for all the questions, but I am most interested in your thoughts.
