I am just 50% into George Knapp's book "Hunt for the Skinwalker".
USUALLY I reject anything as nonsense and disinformation which is heavily hyped on shows like C2C. However, i was VERY positively surprised by the
book, it's a real page turner.
I am used to a LOT of "weird" and scary stuff, reading, movies etc. and I am not easily scared, but THIS book seriously gives me chills, at one point
I even bit my nails.
I would think *multiple* times before I might even remotely consider "making camp" at the Skinwalker ranch. What drove you to camp there I cannot
fathom, I would probably have (BEEP) my pants simply if just anything from the book is true.
HOWEVER, even if the book is a very good and haunting read...I want to caution. I cannot exclude a government op or major disinformation campaign
going on for various reasons. There are various people, book authors and other circumstances where skepticism and criticism is warranted. Not ALL of
those people have good motives.
If one wants to "spread a story"...be sure they will do so and their motives might NOT always be what you think. I especially want to caution in
regards to ANY person who is associated with the C2C show. Ask their motives before you believe their stories. This is all what I have to say.
The fact that the Skinwalker ranch is so hermetically closed up and there is big $$$ at play at well also is somewhat a red flag. Something just
doesn't seem right here. This is not how an independent scientific investigation works, in my opinion. WHY is the ranch so hermetically closed up with
incredible security measures in place like it's a military installation?
Why are not more independent journalists allowed but rather ONE single journalist has the exclusive right to report? What is George Knapp's
involvement and reputation anyway? Why is a TON of money invested into this investigation and there is hardly any "results" aside from the tales in
the book which cannot qualify as "evidence" for anything...at least at 50% into the book?
For me, the likelihood of a major psych-op or whatever "experiment" being conducted is as high as the assumption there is paranormal activity going
on. The ranch is at least as mysterious as Area 51, means literally NO ONE actually knows what's REALLY going on and all we have is anecdotal accounts
and then books which are sold...
That being said, the book is very "entertaining" in a creepy sense. I liked the references to some findings Jacques Vallee made in the 70s...as well
as other references in the book, eg. Cash/Landrum case etc. ALTHOUGH....I am at a point right now where I am also not sure what to think about Jacques
Vallee anymore, especially since I now know he worked together with LMH on a book. As I said above, there are *some* people in the field of UFOlogy
and "paranormal" where I question their motives...
