Hello all. I haven't been a member long, but boy am I hooked. I'm on this site almost daily just to see what else I can read up on and there's no lack of things that peak my interest.

I want to buy some books on this stuff, and I know that there are many, many to choose from. If you were starting a library, which books/authors would you buy first? I'm not looking for books that are science fiction like star wars or tron or stuff like that, but rather a good read based on people's experiences / theories / opinions / conspiracies on what exists out there.

Thank you in advance.

I really liked the work of Michael Tsarion, Stewart Swerdlow, Jordan Maxwell, Alex Collier, Phil Schneider, Bill Cooper and Ellis C Taylor.

Most of these are probably in VHS/DVD format, but some do release books.

Behold a Pale Horse by Milton William Cooper, William Cooper (1991). That will give you alot of info on the UFO subject and coverup ops. If i'm not mistaken it was Cooper who publically reported that the US millitary found ice water on the moon on a secret mission first, then a few years later it came out in the news when most amazingly the news reported that a US Army satellite had found ice water on the moon within a crater. Cooper was shot dead by the police in 2001.
As usual you will have alot of debunkers saying he was fake etc, but thats normal in this field of study.

Wiki link here:

But there are so many conspiracies, you should try to select a handfull of those which interest you the most first, then find the best source of info, then dig as deep as you can go, then branch out into different areas. Atleast, that's what I did. Which interests you the most at the moment?

Thanks for your reply Im a Marty and ravenflt. Aliens and ufos really interest me. Always have. I really believe that we are not alone, but personally have never seen or experienced either one firsthand. I'm not a skeptic about it, I'm a believer. I read 'The Day After Roswell' by Corso and loved it. That's what I guess I am looking for. I've been reading alot on these forums about life on mars/moon/other planets as well and it is all so interesting. I like hearing people's opinions on both sides, but will always believe in ufos and aliens. I talk to my friends and others about this site and most people are opposite me and think I'm nuts for what I believe, but I bet that's probably the normal reaction most people get.

Teilhard de Chardin - The Human Phenomenon.

One of the pioneer the concept of Noosphere. An healthy read, pulling you from Alpha to Omega, and giving a solid, multidimensional ground for further researches.

Warning : the guy was jesuit-catholic. But also Science PhD, explorer - AND warmly hated by Vaticano.

Read whatever floats your boat. I just read today in a different thread that the Corso book was all pap. You loved it. Just goes to show.
Nobody knows the truth behind the conspiracies, or if there even ARE conspiracies. That is why this website, thousands of books, and videos on various conspiracies exist.
Personally, I am reading "Dark Mission" by Richard Hoagland. I am reading with a generous grain of salt, but it's an interesting read and right up your professed ally. (Previous occupants of the moon, mars)
I read "Alien Agenda" a few years ago, by Jim Marrs. Kind of hard to swallow, for me.
What got me hooked was my dad's copy of "Chariots of the Gods" 15 or 20 years ago. Erik von Danikken (sp?) wrote that, and for years it was THE definitive UFO book.
Just buy some books and read them. Either way you win- you may learn something and will improve your spelling, grammar, and vocabulary!

Look in used books stores or on ebay or the like for a UFO/occult/weird/etc. section. There are some really neat books out there with information not on the internet and besides books are wonderful to read and devote ones attention to. I collect for both kitsch and content. I used to have Graham Hancock's Footprints of the Gods which seemed to tie a bunch of historic and early stone monuments around the world BUT leant it out on permanent loan to a friend.

i think you are refering to any books with conspiracy stuff right,

well i thought that Natural Cures they don't want you to know about - Kevin Trudeau was pretty good

also some science fiction or fantasy books seem to have symbolism of conspiracy (lord of the rings - the all seeing eye of sauron [all seeing eye on dollar bill] whats that about?)

First you deny their existance, then you start to doubt it, then you begin to want to believe, then you start believing, then you find so much information about it that you realise it to be the truth, then you get depressed...

Thats the path, not much to look forward to really..
