If it wasn't Tom D, they'd have to choose or invent someone else to fill his role. The time is ripe.
You know, Bo X, the thing is, they've had a run of these guys. Last post I picked on the last 70 years or so where every decade there is a "Tom D" type character.
And I'm sure we could take this back more than 2000 years if we wanted to, but insofar as we're doing the Alien/UFO thing, that's the contemporary Cargo Cult meme, and I'm willing to stick to that for this discussion. But I'm not thinking Tom D has the chops to pull this off. Maybe it's because I'm as old as you (snicker!), but I had to look this guy up. I'd never heard of him.
If you want to go the "good story teller" route, Whitley Strieber is your guy. Communion is light years ahead of Sekrets.
If you want to go the erudite route, Dolan is your man. He at least sounds scholarly (He isn't, but that's another argument.)
If you want to go the public/speaker, charismatic route, Greer fits the bill. Except for some completely irritating asides. ("I bench press 300 pounds!") he can pull it off.
Tom D is a terrible writer. He certainly is not erudite, and he looks like a street punk. He may have a following in music, but it is narrowly based to whatever generation he represents.
Now, if John Lennon were able to start talking about this stuff, wow! We just "jumped the shark" to a whole new level! (Note: Evel Knieval was the first shark jumper, not the Fonz.) But the Higher-up Guys(tm) have chosen a fairly obscure musician, and if his first "book," is any indication, it's not going to work.
So I'm thinking those Higher-up Guys(tm) REALLY need a PR consultant BAD(ly).
I wonder who (Cough, Cough!) they should choose?

Yeah he isn't making money from this, not compare to his Blink royalties, but the "fiction" novels are to me an odd approach for disclosure.

Also, I was very interested in the AMA and deeply wish for a "redo" of it. I always perk up when human souls are mentioned with connection to the UFO phenomenon as it seems to be a recurring subject within the common narrative. Now, whether it's all disinfo or not who knows!
I was hoping to get Tom's response to any questions regarding the Disclosure Event's predicted impact on organized (man-made) religions as my primary interest in seeing Disclosure is the killing blow for these archaic superstitious institutions
Believers of the Ancient Astronaut theory argue that aliens from advanced civilisations have visited Earth throughout history, guiding our religions. They believe that the divine events in the Bible were misinterpreted by early humans and the prophet Jesus Christ was actually an alien.Apr 4, 2015 Was Jesus An Alien? - YouTube www.youtube.com...

They are the "gods" of mythology. Not gods in any other sense. Very physical beings that have advanced technology. That is it. Nothing more. There are different ones created to do different tasks. a reply to: Davg80
