Okay - debate over rehashed story or not, newbie/archive thread protocols and such are perhaps worthy of discussion, but I chose to revisit; clicked
the link and listened to the broadcast. IMHO:
The broadcast and transcript sound to me to be in an English language syntax and cadence I would NOT expect from a benevolent alien messenger.
Perhaps just an instinctive reaction, admittedly, I nevertheless remained unconvinced throughout the broadcast that this transmission was a "Message
from As(h)tar" or any other Cosmic Entity. I don't know about you all, but my B$ meter was going haywire every time the 'messenger Gramah' used a
phrase such as "New Age of Aquarius", "We of the Asta Galactic Command", "...blessed by the supreme love and truth of the Cosmos", yadda, yadda ....
And doesn't the guy's name, "Gramah", sound a little too much like "GrandMa"? I know, it's likely a simple bias on my part, but I felt a little
chuckle welling up in my gut whenever "Gramma" spoke his (it's) name. I don't think that was the intended reaction.
One final observation. The B$ meter again went off-scale when you get to the bottom of the paranormics page we are directed to, and what do we find?
Lots of stuff FOR $ALE!! Books! Buy our books! Learn more about "Ashtar" and his secrets! Cosmic Telepathy! New World Prophesies! Hey - wait a
minute: didn't Granny warn us to AVOID false prophets? So we have to buy a book about New Age Prohesies to avoid them?? Huh?
Anyway - like the Cosmic/New Age Kumbaya sessions (at $1,200 a pop), the Stevie Greer love-ins (at a minimum $800/day), or the myriad UFO/Alien/ET
seers out there selling their version of Ancient Aliens, etc. (with the requisite books, DVDs, and hand-holding 'opportunities)' - this
site/video/broadcast just does not seem to pass the "smell test".
Slightly entertaining, marginally and momentarily intriguing perhaps - but something's fishy. I, for one, don't buy it.
My verdict/assessment (until some better evidence comes along):
An individual or group with some radio smarts/access gained control or hijacked a broadcast to push an agenda of their own. Maybe an inside job
(folks that already worked at the station). The warm and fuzzy /with warnings message delivered on a 'global media' channel, under 'mysterious'
circumstances, is merely meant to play on the altruistic, but nevertheless gullible frailties of the human mind and psyche -to what end? Warn us
about atom bombs? Make us think about our destiny? or to Sell books?
Funny how Granny never quite gets around to telling us what THEIR motive is? (other than to "help" us). So watch and listen, then perform your own
'sniff test'. Does it pass?
*sigh* ...it's all kind of embarrassing, don't you think? Is this the best we can come up with?
