Years ago the psychologist Leon Festinger of "cognitive dissonance" fame, was asked to write scenarios as to how various segments of the population would respond to news of ET contact. It's all covered in the book by Bob Emenneger, "UFOs, Past, Present and Future." Much space must be left for people to disbelieve if they can't handle it.
Bill...this post has me confused a bit. Initially, you seem to be responding
to another post, but I can't figure out whose it was. Secondly, If you have time, could you comment on why, exactly, you feel "space must be left for people to disbelieve if they can't handle it"?
I personally feel that this is a critical facet of the Serpo story and that it may indeed have far-reaching ramifications to 'disclosure'.

All roads are leading toward true disclosure, disinformation, or a little bit of both... Thanks for leading the way Bill. Hopefully this time the messenger won't just be forced to just keep running on the treadmill with no end in sight. We're all with you here - and you are not alone with this. You're doing a fantastic job clearing your name (even though you do not even have to) - and I think it's pretty clear we need to focus on what this information is, why is it coming now and who is sending it your way...
Keep it coming Bill - thanks for all of your hard work.

Just found this page an interesting read when you compare it to what is happening here
“Control Of Information”
By controlling the information one receives you can control and restrict the individual’s ability to think for himself. You limit what he is able to think about.
- The control of the individuals information sources
Deny a person the information needed to make a sound judgment and he will be incapable of doing so. People are trapped in cults because they are denied both the access to the critical information they need to assess their situation. The psychological chains on their minds are just as powerful as if they were locked away physically from society. So strong is this psychological process they also lack the properly functioning internal mechanism to process any critical information placed in front of them.
Ding Ding Ding.............. I believe you are more right than you can imagine!
I also believe Bill Ryan is being honest with us. I believe that Anon A or Anon 1 is someone very, very deep within government that got spooked by all of this attention. I think Anon B or Anon 2 is a poser.
IMHO, of course.
Shawna, is it my imagination or what that it seems you have defended Bill Ryan right to the very last?
Earlier in the posts didn't you meet Bill Ryan for lunch one day or am I wrong?

What was the question? I may have missed that. I'll be glad to answer it if someone can repeat it or references the post.

To get back to the question I raised last night:
1) I am willing to accept the reality of an alien-human hyrbrid... or even of aliens walking among us.
2)This acceptance will not necessarily contradict my belief in God or any particular religion... as I know that there is more to any one religion than a literal reading of its holy text. I am also able to see that, all along, many of the world's religious leaders were, in the past, talking about a universal or cosmic god that created ALL sentient life in his image.
3)I realize that things we consider to be unethical might not be to an alien... a being who, by definition, would have different viewpoints than we do.
4)I am also willing to live or work with alien-human entities. Though I think it is unethical to manufacture life as a commodity... I would also respect any life that had already been made... even if it was super-intelligent alien-human life.
So Bill, Anon, and whatever else is out there.... am I ready to receive the next level of information? Does the public have to come around to the positions I listed baove before we can find out what's going on? Is this what I -- or we -- have to say before the next piece of information is delivered?
