there are no men in black, no grey aliens, no traditional bigfoot.
(could be, I'm just not aware of such stories)

full known list of entities skinwalkerranch.org...

Didn't you say you saw a bigfoot at the ranch in your video with Joe Rogan?


No the editors edited to make it look like I said that. I have never ever seen a bigfoot on the Skinwalker ranch property. For that matter I have never "seen" a bigfoot. However I have had what I assume to be a traditional bigfoot encounter in northern Utah over a hundred miles NORTH of Skinwalker (even have a video showing the foot prints after the close encounter occurred). Hollywood editing magic to make Rogan look comical and witty. This was NOT at all how the actual interview transpired. In real life Rogan and I were face to face in what almost erupted into a fist fight by the end of the show. For reality tv I'm surprised they didn't show that!...

I don't understand your question. Where did I say I never went to Skinwalker Ranch?

Why not what?

Your not going to see aliens typing on this forum. Get in your car, buy an airplane ticket, bus ticket, train ticket and get out to the area surrounding Skinwalker Ranch, Bradshaw Ranch, Colorado Ranch, the Texas Airport in my book, or the outskirt desert surrounding Sedona Arizona .

Get a tent and camp out on one of the nearby mesas within 5 miles any direction of the ranch for 1 week alone. Sorry there are no zoo tickets to see a caged live alien, or a secret youtube "area 51" videos to watch of the real deal. You have to get out, take the risk, and put yourself out there to experience "it".

Hey, have you ever thought about trying a Ouija board when you're out there?

I, for one, believe those things work, but I'm too chicken to mess around with it. I think if you did, it would be smart to have some backup.

Extremely simple this is - much more easy to believe those who have shared the truth than it is to believe a skeptical bigot or egotistical idiot.

Egotistical idiots are in denial so they don't know when they lie.

Skeptical bigots don't care if they lie they only care if physical evidence is lacking.

It is not so much ironic as it is revealing that most people choose to listen and believe these two types of individuals.

Which brings us to reality - the beholder of truth chooses to share it and in return gets ridiculed and filled with regret, so then they just share it with their family, the family believes them but the idiots and bigots say they should be believed over the family member even though they have nothing to describe a reason besides judgmental negativity derived from pure hatred towards humanity. The media and society as a whole must smell the scent of hatred from miles away and drool at the opportunity to judge another person and be wrong, so they make all attempts to not believe the family and eventually gain strength in numbers, like a hateful hive of sucker bees.

it is a delusion from hell to pretend that one can dabble in evil and skate away unscathed with only good resulting.

I think that using a Ouija board anywhere, and especially out there is a very dangerous thing to do. The Catholic religion forbids it's use for a reason. When you use one to "talk" to someone on the spiritual plane, you may think you are talking to aunt Martha but could quite possibly be in contact with a demonic entity posing as your aunty. Remember the movie the exorcist? That was based on a true event that started with Ouija board. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to take the chance of demonic possession. On top of that, most investigators have said it is possible that what is going on out there could be demonic in nature.

So if a portal is open already, that these critters are going in and out of at will, IMHO you are just begging to become some entity's meat puppet!

a reply to: Topcraft I completely agree, I personally will not practice any occult like rituals out there for good reason. Those who have however seem to have dramatic encounters (as portrayed in the book). This is why I continually lean towards spiritual.

Read the first 2 parts available on amazon and must say good job! It seems thorough. objective and very entertaining in a fascination kind of way. I will purchase the reading on kindle.
Will you create a thread later where we can discuss the contents? I already have some questions and comments.

You mentioned some conscious altering sessions and I am curious if you did that on the site there and what you felt/perceived, if anything. That approach is one I would try out there as well, as an attempt to open myself up to alternative frequencies, fields or dimensions. Risky probably but I would want to exercise all options in order to understand what is happening there and perhaps form a communication link. Naturally one should be aware that opening such line of communication could be dangerous, but I give value to altered states of consc and so I would try it too.

Thanks again for your work, and I must admit I am a bit envious, for I too have wanted to just stay out there to investigate over a period of time.

My correspondence with Ryan Skinner Part 1



Me:
1. Shadow Creature
This is one I feel whoever sent it to you faked this image. Are we really seeing something that wasn't made in Photoshop or Gimp? The tell-tale sign this shadow creature is fake in my opinion, is the transparency around parts of the creature. This was most likely made using the airbrush tool! Here's an example I made in Gimp, with the airbrush tool. You can see the similarities. No doubt if I had spent more time in Gimp I could easily produce a better quality "shadow creature" photo just like the one sent in from the local. I think his has that jagged look because he used the eraser tool to get rid of the smoothness, like you see with my rendition. The overall lack of clarity might be from filters on the image to make it less apparent. What is your opinion on my findings, and if in agreement, do you intend to remove it from your website?

Ryan:
"That picture was sent to me from HeroParanormal aka Ryan Burns, the local Skinwalker ranch researcher and my competitor. He claims it is of a shadow creature. I DID NOT take the picture, nor do I remember the story behind the photo. Don't get me wrong I myself am a photoshop expert (I made the cover to my book) but I take no ownership of that photo. I am also NOT saying that it is a hoax or fake. I don't know what it is and on the slim chance it is 100% genuine of a shadow creature at the ranch I want it on my site first !

I never really analyzed it, nor am I a authenticity expert, nor are you. People can arrive at their own conclusion, but perhaps I should make it clear that I do not personally endorse it one way or the other."


Me:
2. The Ice Circle
The problem for me on this one is that it's in an album titled, "Unexplained Phenomena: Anomalous photos considered paranormal, extraterrestrial, extradimensional, or cryptozoological". There is nothing paranormal about this, though rare and fascinating. For a long time I thought it could be attributed to the strangeness of the ranch but now that I have looked it up, know that it is a natural occurrence. Therefor I think it is being misrepresented or that like me you had no idea it was natural. To quote wikipedia, "An ice disc, ice circle, or ice pan is a natural phenomenon that occurs in slow moving water in cold climates. Ice circles are thin and circular slabs of ice that rotate slowly in the water. It is believed that they form in eddy currents. Ice discs have most frequently been observed in Scandinavia and North America." Here are some cool ice circle vids. What are your thoughts?

Ryan:
"According to many people they do believe these ice circles to be paranormal in nature. I personally see both sides and am on the fence on this one. Regardless we can all agree it is a very very rare phenomenon. Also the previous ranch owners would find perforated holes scooped out all across their property of the same shape and size.

Again I am very familiar with the ice circle videos and potential rational for their formation. I find them to be yet another oddity to the ranch hence I let the viewer determine their own conclusion."


Me:
3. 3 UFOs Sucking Up Bugs
No question to ask here just pointing out that there is an artistic filter on this one. Not sure what they call it in photoshop, but in Gimp it's an oil paint filter. I don't trust the source (Ik it isn't yours based off of the description) because the filter makes it hard to tell what we're really looking at. Also the fact they were willing to alter it in any way is suspicious.

Ryan:
"This picture was sent to me by Ryan Burns via Heroparanormal.com. He made the claim that it was a ufo sucking up bugs. We no longer see eye to eye and I question some of his claims. Again I am decent at photoshop but I make no claim to this photo. To my untrained eye it appears to be a photo of something but I don't believe it is "edited". I'm not sure its a UFO SUCKING UP BUGS either.... like I said I question his theories, motives, and conclusions. Please keep in mind people send me photos and I post them.... it doesn't mean they are "MY" photos, I just like to be a website the collects all photos and claims. I'm not a ufo policeman."

Me:
4. Various Wolf Pictures (i.e. 1, 2)
Why should I believe these are anything but ordinary wolves? How did Ryan Burns know the wolf in the picture he took was bullet proof? If he shot at it why is there no evidence to show that's the case? One of the pictures describes the wolf as being a "monstrosity" but it doesn't look that large. Certainly not anything like the wolf described at the beginning of Hunt for the Skinwalker. "Ed, like his son, stood over six feet tall, and the wolf reached almost to his chest. Massive muscles rippled beneath its shiny gray-silver coat. The eyes were a shocking shade of light blue that penetrated the soul." Though, I definitely feel some of the accounts relayed in that book are exaggerated, perhaps you agree.

Ryan:
"Ryan Burns never shot at any wolf ever to my knowledge. A lot of your questions are for Ryan Burns NOT ME. Accuse him of fakery please, not me. I simply repost the pictures he posts, in case he really did capture something phenomenal. Like I said I see the source as a archive of the strange in regards to Skinwalker, and I'm not here to be some sort of paranormal judge regarding pictures. Because they are in the picture part of the site DOES NOT MEAN I ENDORSE THEM. I only do endorse my own videos. If you see trickery in there, ask me and I'm happy to explain. The photos are meaningless or extremely meaningful... who knows. They come from all different sources. My videos... I took each one, they are mine (except the one about a chupacabra dead dog creature...that again was Burns....)"

My correspondence with Ryan Skinner Part 2



5. Lead Security on Ranch
I am aware this picture was taken in Iraq (saw the post on your forums). Why cover up his face? If he was so threatening, why would he give you his first and last name? Why not take a picture of him at the ranch? From afar, if he wouldn't let you up close. How come I can't find any actual evidence of the ranch being heavily guarded 24/7? No pictures, no videos, at least that I can find. If the security of the ranch is so vital, why is it so easy to look down on the ranch at the fence line (referring to where you and Rogan's crew were standing).

Ryan:
"That is the exact picture of the exact guard that tried to apprehend a team of researchers on the ranch. How do I know this... I'll never tell, not you or anyone. Why is his face covered? To not incur further his or other guard's wrath or legal concerns. He never gave me his first or last name.... perhaps it was extracted from another source (why would the guard give me his name?). The picture is from his facebook profile page, I never ever took the picture, it was taken in Iraq on his tour of duty by I assume one of his military buddies, no clue but it is the lead ranch guard.

Go to the ranch or ask ANYONE who has gone there if it is guarded... it is. You can take pictures at the ranch gate just like you can at the warning sign at area 51, but you cannot proceed any further or you will be immediately detained at gun point. The guards are faaaaaaaaaaaaar less active during the day than they are at night...and for good reason. Whatever is out there doesn't typically come out during the day. Read stories or buy my book to learn more about the guards, that should convince you, either that I'm a brilliant hoaxer for the amount of evidence I present in the book.* I do have a vivid imagination, however not that vivid as to be as detailed as I am in the book in regards to the volume of documents. Again on that topic I cannot discuss further, I'm sorry. This is up to you to do further research as I can fully assure you there are armed guards on the ranch 24/7 everyday of the year. Other than holding your hand and walking you there, you will either have to do further research or go there yourself."


* I assume Ryan meant to add something like, "or I'm not". Perhaps he will clarify in a responding post.

Me:
6. Jessie Ventura's Conspiracy Theory
Do you think the Ventura show faked the electronic voice coming over their car radio?

Ryan:
"I feel almost embarrassed answering this question and admitting to it, but YES it really did happen. I remember the camera crew suddenly huddled around Tyrel and Seans car and I walked up wondering what the commotion was about (we were just parked at a gas station near the ranch). They said robotic voices were coming out of the radio. I thought they hoaxed the whole thing some how with a mini transmitter. But then I went to my own car turned on the radio and sure enough exact the same bizarre robotic voice shouting biblical commands was on my own radio. I really couldn't believe it, dunno why... maybe I should have been more accepting. It really did happen and that wasn't editing magic (although other parts where, Sean never jumped the fence and ran to the house.. he jumped over, and hopped right back and acted like he ran there, also he never got shot in the leg.. that was complete bull----). Not sure what else to say about the voices, it could be a local biblical radio station that was having technical difficulties with its tower signal, that's the only rational excuse I can find for it. Radio malfunction or angelic warnings, either way it really did happen and was NOT edited in. Honestly it looks fake as all heck watching it on tv, I almost want to laugh had I not been in my own car when it happened! It happened all the way to Skinwalker ranch then stopped once we got there... was odd."

Me:
7. Cattle Brand or Masonic Symbol
You know this is a cattle brand (See post), so why are you suggesting otherwise in the description? In your current thread, Kantzveldt begins talking about portals and shows pictures he/she believes to be portal designs (See post). Your response was to link the cattle brand picture, which could give the impression you are suggesting it could be a portal design. Whether or not that is the case however, you know that it is nothing more than a cattle brand. Nothing connected to buffalo soldiers, or portals. Could you explain please?

Ryan:
"Yes we have been told by locals it is a cattle brand, however it is ALSO a known mason symbol. Again I'm not playing judge and jury here, I'm only presenting the evidence for both sides. Arrive at your own conclusions. I think it is a very fair and rational position the fact that I point out I learned that it is a CATTLE BRAND. However that could be a cover story for something more mysterious...who knows, I'm only here to lay out the breadcrumbs for others to follow and arrive at the truth wherever that may lead.

I never ever claimed it was connected to buffalo soldiers nor do I support anything regarding that claim. I said its a masonic symbol. The buffalo soldier angle is complete bull----, they never fought the Utes, they are NOT buried on the ridge, the ridge does NOT contain a masonic symbol.. that whole buffalo soldier ghost theory is flawed and false."

My correspondence with Ryan Skinner Part 3



Me:
8. Pictures of Portals Opening and Something Emerging (i.e. 1, 2)
Why do you or whoever sent these to you believe these show portals with something emerging? Why is one image taken off your television screen?

Ryan:
"Picture one was taken by Ryan Burns, I had absolutely nothing to do with it nor was I there. However I am friends with his friend Pastor Will (yes his friend is a real Pastor!), and he swears to me they saw a portal open up and these 2 creatures/humaoids emerge. Again I was not there for vouch one way or another regarding this picture. The story goes that Colm Kelleher found out about the picture and personally called Ryan Burns to ask him specific questions about the location and what he saw. Again that could all be untrue and I was not there to confirm, nor am I currently friends with Ryan Burns. Ryan Burns claimed that two creatures stepped out of a portal that opened up in a field east of the ranch, then stepped up and over the portal as if hopping out. Again I wasn't there and cannot vouch to the validity of his claims.

The second picture was taken by me and witnessed by me... PHENOMONAL night and that picture of all my pictures is impressive to me (maybe not to the end viewer). I took that picture off of Ryan Burns television screen. Ryan burns has some unf---ing believable video that he took years and years ago when I went out with him that he has NEVER shown online or to anyone. He gets extremely paranoid about his videos and I'm not sure why he shares some..but is reclusive about others. I was at his house and asked him to play that video as I was with him that very night when it happened (balls of light and what looks like to people next to it... NOT GUARDS). He refused to give me a copy, but being the sneaky person I was...when he left the room I took a snapshot of his television screen. I would absolutely love to see the original and he has it at his house. However I doubt it would be very convincing to you, unless you saw it with your own eyes and were there to experience what we did. Regardless I knew it was a video of the real deal and I'd be damned if I wasn't going to get a snapshot for my own records and to post online. Believe it or not I stand firmly behind that second photo... I was there and saw the flashing balls of light that night with my own eyes... that was one time I didn't bring my video camera but Burns had his. I'm glad that I forever immortalized that moment by taking that picture of his tv screen."


Me:
9. Strange Footprint in the Snow (1, 2)
Do you have more photos of this print possibly showing a trail? How was the second image put together to show the skinwalker print? Why can't I find anything on wikipedia about skinwalker prints?

Ryan:
"Now convinced is just a common rabbit hopping... I need to remove that, its not paranormal. When I first started the site I added that and didn't realize it was likely a common rabbit. The second in print was on a old Wikipedia page for skinwalker ranch around 2008. That a picture has since been taken down. I should likewise remove from my site"

Me:
10. Contradiction?

"the book contains secret files in it that have never been shared with anyone other than those who work for the government and Bigelow."
originally posted by: hiii_98
"All of NIDS/Bigelow's crystal clear video evidence is under lock and key"
To be clear, I am assuming that other forms of evidence besides just video is under their lock and key.
Are Bigelow and/or the government sharing this secret info with you? If so, why you (not to make it sound as if you're not worthy)?

Ryan:
"I will not answer this question, I've stated several times in the forum already. Take the "evidence" in the book as you will. Believe it or not, I would never have enough free time to hoax all of the evidence and files contained in the book. I guess its possible, but for what reason? I wont answer the question not because I'm hoaxing anything, because I'm not interested in the repercussions from other sources. Sources far more concerning than a judgmental reading audience.... I'm sorry I cannot go into more detail on this one topic, but you should have anticipated my reply based on previous attempts to exact this information. The good news is that in several years from now, I may be much more open to discuss this topic. The videos, photos and even tangible samples that Bigelow has held at Bigelow Aerospace I have NEVER had access too."

Conclusion



These questions mainly regarded photos archived on Ryan's website, and not the contents of either of his two books. As I have not read them at this point in time I cannot comment on the validity of the claims made in them. However, after talking with Ryan during this past week, my impression is that he is honestly researching events at Skinwalker ranch, and has had several strange experiences of his own. He speaks passionately, will admit mistakes, keeps an open mind to the possibilities, and stands firm in regards to his personal experiences. I disagree with uploading questionable images and videos that he can't attest to, but that is only my opinion. I understand he wants to archive any unknowns, and certainly he has made it clear to me that he wants viewers to come to their own conclusions. I would only suggest making that more evident on the website so the next time a question happy clown like me comes around it saves him some time! I did not question any of his videos, for personal reasons. I can see how they could easily be faked, but since I have witnessed something similar, and because of the impressions from him mentioned above, I didn't feel questioning their validity was needed.

You can come to your own conclusions about Ryan. There will always be that part of my mind that questions, I can't help it, and mean no offense to Ryan or anyone else. One thing I did learn from this was, I need to get to Utah and investigate for myself. I appreciate the time you took talking to me Ryan, and letting me post three more big walls of text in your thread.

I have never attempted that on site at Skinwalker. I think i would like to try that actually. That would be the true test of my merit. All experiences at Skinwalker have been with a clear and sober body and mind. However I do agree with that as an experiment, shamanism is what may have created this portal to begin with.

thank you for the honest review. I think the main problem i had was in taking the time to properly reply to each of your questions, it was just too much for one quick reply. I'm glad we were able to do this over a period of time, that worked out well for me. In addition i think you bring up many valid points regarding how I report other media that is given to me. I am also impressed by your grounded mistrust yet open mind. That is actually the perfect combination to make a great investigator. If you do go out there I'd be happy to help in any way.
