Hello fellow ATS'ers ,
I like skeptics because skeptical thinking is a valuable tool in finding the Truth. But I don't understand why most skeptics do not question the
incompleteness of our current scientific advancement . In this post I tell about my first UFO and the effects it has had on me as a person , child ,
skeptical thinker , and human.
On a camping in France.
With Daddy on a camping somewhere near Bordeaux (France). About 23hours but I don't know exactly. I was 8 years old and it was way past my bedtime.
Daddy woke me up , son come look I want you to show you something he said. So I crawled still sleepy out my little tent. Eyes half open and even at
that young age I saw with my very myopic eyes the finger of my dad pointing towards a dot right above our tents.
I remember that 8 a 10 other people were also watching the dot.
Whats that ? I asked Dad ? That's a UFO they are watching us he replied. 'Dad I want to sleep' i responded , Please. Son wave at them he said with a
'hmmm OK' I replied and I reluctantly waved.
Then at the sudden the dot in the sky (at minus 9 diopter is everything a dot) shot away at an incredible speed. I crawled back in the tent and that's
all what happened...
Now that is all what happened and this cant be debunked.
Something very fast and very near our tents in the sky.
Other people too saw an UFO shape but I have very bad eyesight so for me it was just a dot in the sky nothing more.
A couple of days later I asked my dad what the dot was.
My father had seen a lot in his life and explained too me that the dot was an 'airplane' from another world.
I don't know why (maybe because the camping was very boring) but in the days that followed I started to draw and write stuff down. Domes, computer
chips,robots,long white people. Just fantasy but very detailed stuff.
Eventually I produced 19 cahiers full of drawings and text. For about 4 years I lived in the childhood fantasy that people from Venus would visit us.
Well there is nothing wrong with that just the fantasy of an obsessed child.
My father must have seen that I became obsessed and gradually distracted my obsessive attention for 'Venus' by starting to build Toy Rockets with
Eventually Toy rockets replaced my childhood fantasy , after that puberty and finally.. 'girls'. The cahiers were condemned to the attic and gathered
dust but as later turned out eventually they came back to haunt me.
Living Inside the box
I learned the Einstein/Bohr shuffle and became a scientist without a job (that's a tradition in the Netherlands
). After that fiasco I started my
own firm which became moderately successful.
At that time I wasn't really interested in UFOs or anything outside the box at all. Science had become more or less my gospel. Being extremely
skeptical , I dismissed every possibility of life in outer space until...
Suddenly a lot of the stuff I drew as a child popped up on the net. things like Asthar the pleiadians USO'S UFOs and the grays reminded me of my
But eventually it all would make sense but at that moment I couldn't make head or tail of it. So I convinced myself that there was more to it (the
cahiers) and made it my mission to discover the Truth. I had a lot of resources and decided to start a CT/alternative-news site , got in contact with
a group of other UFO enthusiasts (for lack of a better word).
Self-delusion and the Truth
In the beginning the group was a very good thing. Interviews , News-items trips ed. A company was founded () and It got legal status.
But people are people and eventually Indigo's ,abductees ,psychics or whatever... Are just the same greedy bastards like me and you.
I've very bad social skills (Asperger) so a lot of what was going on in the group(social level) was a big mystery to me. Eventually they asked to
interview me. I reluctantly agreed because I still wasn't entirely convinced that my 'childhood fantasies' had anything to do with the truth. But they
(the group) convinced me that it was good for business. All the cahiers would be scanned analyzed and documented and I should comment on them.
10 hours interview.
I still remained skeptic but I more or less followed the group. I also observed that the group was far less critical. Every sighting and every
paranormal vision was accepted as truth. Well I'm very skeptic but at that time I was just accepting anything. To my defense 2012 became near and
people overall became very very weird I too.
Seeing my own interview.
Eventually I reviewed my own interview and came to the conclusion that it wasn't worth to publish. It's a bit like Amach or Camelot (no offense). The
first 5 minutes of an interview might be true but after that...
The group was furious and said to me that I had to do something. A fight (verbally) broke out.
My family urged me to stop my quest because I already was depleting my recourses.
I agreed and decided to cut off my resources that I gave to the group and as turned out without money 'friends' disappear very quickly.
But I was still very intrigued by the fact that so much of my 'childhood drawings' became true.
So I reasoned that some part must be genuine.At that time I started to work for a charity foundation. This gave me the unique opportunity to go to
Rwanda and Congo Forest Equatorial e.
The Idea was it to interview witnesses that knew absolutely nothing about the western society 'tabula Blanca'. So I did and I Interviewed the Mbote
(better known as Pygmy) and their encounter with the Sky people. To be honest I didn't get very far but what I do know is that their encounters are
very similar to the encounters that Western Abductees tell. For me that's enough to convince myself that the UFO (ship in the sky) phenomenon is very
real and that sometimes (and I reallymean sometimes) people are really abducted.
Beside the point but A funny story is that an Mbote told me that there is a river where if you fall asleep on onside you might wake up on the other
side but you have to pay by loosing all your hair and your fingernails. I still blaming myself that I didn't try it but I might end up looking like
lex luthor . True ? I don't know ?
UFOs exist and after decades of research there is no doubt about that. But most people also have very rich fantasy. For me my only encounter was a
Dot in the sky that's it. Yes The truth is often very boring but that doesn't make the truth less important. I a way this is all I have to say
about my personal experiences with the UFO phenomenon.
