Sometimes a movie is just a movie.

Now I know this puts me in the minority, but I've always liked Lear. He's always been up front about what he believes being his beliefs as a result of conversations he's had and not backed up by personal experience. My belief is, Lear may be wrong but he's not a liar.

I wish he was still active here.

A lot of Lear content is still available here, and can be found using the Search function, if anyone's so inclined.

Not much on it but the Youtube Channel is up - no restrictions there.

Did enjoy this very short clip.

Thanks, mate. Very enjoyable taster.


Ufology is very lucky to have someone of George's calibre and inherent charm, not to mention his poetic command of the English language.

I was reading through Springer's three-part interview with George on ATS in 2006 - a great read. I have reservations about how close George is to TTSA and Skinwalker Ranch, and I think the Lazar tale is about as believable as anything else John Lear has conjured up, but if it wasn't for Bob and John's little prank, we may not have even heard of George today.

You also didn't agree to companies on the web being able to store data about you without your consent. Just saying!

Ah what a nice way to politely say censorship.

If it's censorship it's from the lazy idiots that made the site, not the EU.


LOL. Whatever mate. Sounds like you expect the rest of the world to conform to YOUR wants. What an amazing sense of egotistical entitlement you have.

There's an easy solution to YOUR problem.

Yes always respected George Knapp mate and look forward to rummaging through the website when we get access to it - he's made some great comments over the years about authenticated US Gov UFO documents (and highly dubious US Gov UFO explanations) and also find his interviews with folks like Jacques Vallee and David Paulides really interesting to listen to.

I don’t agree with a lot of Knapp’s undertakings but he should be credited for his ufo reporting and his long-standing interest in it.

The web site looks very good and seems to have some money behind it.

I'm sure European access will be sorted out soon; it's still early days after all.

George has always been a diamond in ufology's crown, perhaps the only true diamond left in the rough, and I'm sure his inevitable autobiography will lay the whole Truth on the line in due course in an entertaining and very readable fashion.

In the meantime, his work outside the TTSA/Bigelow/Lazar circus is truly commendable, and I anxiously await further information regarding the Russian documents he accessed.

Guess not being in the European Union has its perks after all
The site looks greats; a ton of material to go through in the next couple of days.

Thanks for the notification Springer!

Great site and an equally great Journalist. I have a lot of respect for the work he put in with Bob Lazar, who IMO is a highly credible first-hand witness to ET technology/artifacts

Thanks Mark
For sharing this link and support George Knapp's efforts

Because in a prior post you said "When I see sites like that I always ignore them, if they do not care about EU citizens I don't care about them."

That's the definition of entitlement. You feel entitled that someone should cater to your wants. You also don't know much about GDPR compliance. Fines from supervisory authorities in the EU can reach up to 20 Million Euros or 4% of annual global revenues, whichever is greater.

George Knapp is an American citizen and is not beholden to any foreign government nor foreign body like the EU. He doesn't need to comply with anything outside of his own country. If you don't like then take it up with the overreaching socialist EU.

OK, now I understand your post, what threw me off was that you quoted a different post.

No, I just think that when someone creates a site with public access they should do it for all people (including people with disabilities). If they don't care about people like me why should I care about them?

I do know about GDPR compliance, as the company I work for had to create a document for its customers, as we need some personal data to do our work. Also, I manage some sites and had to make sure they were compliant.

It's not a question of liking if George needs to comply with the GDPR or not (he does, or, more correctly, the site owners do, if they have EU citizens as "clients"), it's a question of giving all people equal opportunities.

I feel the same about idiots that make sites that only work on a specific browser.

Like I said previously. George Knapp has ZERO responsibility to adhere to a foreign body's absurd regulation. It's not up to Knapp to fight the battle of the people who have allowed the EU to completely wreck their countries with the world's most ridiculous over regulation in history. Take it up with the EU.

Your answer shows you know very little about all this.

You are the one who initiated the condescending comments about how "the idiots" whom Knapp employed should somehow cater to you and then you complain when someone refutes your condescending comments.

You can retract your comments and apologize or remove them altogether which is what mods typically do. I know more on this topic of GDPR compliance than I ever cared to.

Lets remember where were at everyone and stop the bickering about events we can't fix at a moments notice, with that said, see below for some positive news with a message for our friends/members that can not view the Website see this link here from Springer



George does mention that they are working on getting the EU clearance done as soon as possible, it just hasn't happened yet.


So hang in there friends across the waters... they're working on a resolution on this inconvenience.


Johnny

A personal friend of mine and a guy who has always been a friend to AboveTopSecret.com has finally been able to put together a really well done, living and breathing site called Mystery Wire within which you will find interviews with just about anybody who made an impact on Ufology, Area-51, Space Tech, Military Secrets, etc...

Somehow I have a feeling that they won't have any information on the Condon Report. Cause it's not tickling the ears of their particular target market (audience to be entertained and intrigued).

In 1966 Gerald R. Ford, then congressman from Michigan, was credited with calling for another federal investigation of UFO’s (after Project Blue Book in 1952). This was in response to a number of UFO sightings in his state. The result was that another study was set up at the University of Colorado. Dr. Edward U. Condon, a prominent physicist, assumed oversight of the work. In 1969, at the conclusion of the study, the Condon Report was issued. Among other things, it said that “nothing has come from the study of UFOs in the past 21 years that has added to scientific knowledge . . . that further extensive study of UFOs probably cannot be justified in the expectation that science will be advanced thereby.”

This thorough investigation, summarized in the Condon Report, has clarified the part played by physical and psychological distortions. It has explained how ordinary objects, seen in the sky by persons who do not recognize them under the perhaps unusual circumstances, can be misconstrued in perception, magnified in the telling, further exaggerated in the newspapers, and end up as spaceships landing little green men from Mars.

I have a feeling there won't be any interviews with Philip Klass, Terence Hines or Donald H. Menzel either on the website recommended in the OP.

How do scientists explain UFO’s? The late Dr. Donald H. Menzel, a Harvard astronomer, and Philip Klass, former senior editor of Aviation Week, are among those who have studied the subject of UFO sightings. They affirm that UFO’s are actually IFO’s (identified flying objects). When investigated, UFO’s have turned out to be identifiable things or effects, such as weather balloons, nighttime advertising airplanes and helicopters, meteors, or sun dogs. (A sun dog, or parhelion, is a bright spot that appears on either side of the sun, also known as a mock sun.)

Philip Klass explained UFO’s as natural phenomena or as incorrect identifications. As an example, according to him, some UFO’s were suspected of being a kind of ball lightning, or a plasma. His critics were quick, however, to say that plasmas, or highly ionized gases, can have very short lifetimes and do not adequately explain the problem. He says that some UFO’s seen on radar are artifacts of weather phenomena. However, according to some radar operators, this explanation does not account for the seemingly intelligent behavior sometimes observed. Klass’s thought is that people who are suddenly exposed to a brief unexpected event “may be grossly inaccurate in trying to describe precisely what they have seen.”

In his book Pseudoscience and the Paranormal, Terence Hines states that “careful investigation has resulted in straightforward natural explanations for even very impressive-sounding UFO reports. . . . All these cases make clear the nearly total unreliability of eyewitness reports. In almost every case, the witnesses’ reports differed substantially from the actual stimulus, but in only a very few cases were the witnesses willfully lying. Their knowledge about what UFOs ‘ought’ to look like influenced their reports, along with the effects of visual illusions.”

Not a bad site at all, but needs more content. I hope he can pump it out fast enough.
