Well how can I be more like you and thereby 'know personally" about the alien races? Is it a method I could study and learn? Actually, could you provide proof that you know about these races before I do study under you? Do you have more proof than Phil Krapf?
What have you personally sacrificed to become an 'experiencer'? It is equal to what Krapf has sacrificed, career-wise? I know you think he's getting rich but his book only sells for around twelve bucks. Is it his book that makes him a "sell-out"? Do you reject him because he took money and therefore see yourself as being more credible due to your profit-free message? I am curious.

I tend to like the story whether it's fiction or not, i dont read things about aliens to know a "truth" for me it is entertaining to think of other people from other worlds.
Instead, they have to first find individual humans among their contactees who are brave and willing enough to overcome their own prejudice and then take on the personal humiliation and skeptics as they try to speak to others. A person may have to give up a lot to go against "any" similar kind of wrong in our societies, to try to right it.
Chapter 11.. Titled "Indecent Proposal" sealed the deal for me. I mean come on, your abducted by aliens and you're gonna act like Austin Powers!! GGGRROOOVVYY BBAABBYY!!!! And his alien guide or whatever you want to call her, "Gina", describes herself as a "sexperimentor". I'm not buying it at all.
More likely than either of the first two hypotheses is the fact that to have had relations with "Gina" would have broken down barriers and made Krapf feel closer to them, less likely to embarrass them, as he did, in part, later.
Regardless of monitary rewards he probably felt he needed some affirmation, and what better prey than those "lunatics" in the ufology "cults". The only reason he has any credibility in the ufology field is because he was a "supposed" hard nosed reporter.
If anybody has background that would allow them to spoof or hoax this "controversial" subject it would be a guy like Krapf. The stories just wouldn't lend credibility if he had been making a living driving a truck for 30 years.
Admit it, as much as you would like to believe him he does have the perfect background to be a hoaxer.
1. Why would the "Verdants" care about 9-11? What relation to anything does that event have other than to state that we can't yet co-exist peacefully.
9-11 was trivial compared to other events in our history...
Did Krapf announce publicly before 9/11 that the Verdants were going to come forward soon? Or did he just say "The Vedants were about to come forward then 9/11 happened".
