Well what one has to wonder is what is the intent behind such communications. If another Race really wanted us to know they existed it is painfully
obvious they could accomplish that easily.
I do agree that many of these stories are not real, just so I can get that out of the way. I read them when they are presented, but so far none of
them have struck me as being of anything other than human origin.
So let's disreguard the hoaxes and consider for a moment what this could mean. If one assumes that we have been judged not ready for full on contact
what might happen? Perhaps what we are seeing is a few indivduals who do not accept what the officials have decreed.
You can see this sort of thing on Earth, the government warns people to stay away from a disaster zone, and yet some people head there anyway.
Another logical possibility is that the other Races have decided that they should nudge us along a bit. Going person to person is rather slow I grant
but to say that no one has ever been convinced is I think incorrect. I think what is more true is that each person who relates a tale does reach some
people. The nature of what we are discussing is such that no one account, no matter how detailed, is going to reach a vast audience.
I take exception to the original posters characterization of these people as non-entities. Fame and Fortune are not the measure of a person's
self-worth. For most of these people if they had not had whatever experiences they had they would not be trying to convince anyone of anything.
I think it is a mistake to look just at one aspect of the UFO Community and single it out for judgement. Contactees are just one part of the whole and
overall we. as a group, are being effective. It is quite easy to show that belief in the two central ideas we discuss here has been on the rise for
the past 50 years or so. More people believe in the existance of Alien Life, and a smaller, but still growing percentage believe we have been Visited
by some of this life.
I am not so sure that all of this can be attributed to outside influences, but if you choose to look at it that way, well the Aliens are not so dumb
