Maybe the aliens would realise that asking someone to tell their story isn't going to be believed with having proof supplied.
But it seems sometimes they think that people are naive enough to believe anything
or that some will never believe no matter what proof is forthcoming because they believe so blindly that aliens DO NOT exist, because thats what they've been told.

I believe he is once again trying to make himself more important then he may actually be. It is another symptom of the disorder in my last post. I mean...beamish is right..who cares what you were before it does not make the fable any more believable.
remember when you wanted to have a french transcript made? and the OP stated his reasons for wanting to keep total anonynimity in France? Perhaps this last post is to re-inforce why he wants to remain anonymous?
I am also curious about your statement about the generic re-telling of his story by others? Perhaps a link so we may observe it for ourselves?
George Adamski …became widely known in ufology circles, and to some degree in popular culture, after he claimed to have photographed ships from other planets, met with friendly "Space Brothers", and to have taken flights with them. The first of the so-called contactees of the 1950s, he styled himself to be a "philosopher, teacher, student and saucer researcher", though was often considered to be deluded or a fraud.
George King…had an experience that was to change his life. One Saturday morning in May, while drying some dishes, a loud, apparently physical voice told him: "Prepare yourself! You are to become the Voice of Interplanetary Parliament." While he had no inkling what this could mean, he knew that this message was something he could not ignore. He stopped his job as a taxi driver and founded a new religious movement, the Aetherius Society to convey the messages of these extraterrestrials.
"Billy" Eduard Albert Meier (February 3, 1937) is a citizen of Switzerland who claims to be a UFO contactee. He is also the source of many controversial UFO photographs, which he states are evidence of his encounter. Meier reports regular contact with extraterrestrials who impart spiritual and philosophical wisdom. He describes the Plejaren (aliens from the Pleiades) as humanoid.
Often those men and women who join UFO cults are, by their own admission, individuals who have become disillusioned with existing religious institutions and dissatisfied by the manner in which the political establishment is dealing with social and economic injustices. As in the accounts of the prophets and seekers of old, the contemporary UFO cultists are looking for a more intimate relationship with a source of strength and inspiration outside of themselves. And they cannot seek much farther outside of themselves than outer space.
When such world-weary pilgrims encounter a charismatic man or woman who tells a marvelous story of having received direct spiritual enlightenment from beings from beyond the stars, the potential cultists feel that they have found a teacher who can now truly answer their questions. Their quest has come to an end. They, too, will now willingly become messengers for a new gospel from outer space, for the UFO prophet has not only made contact with a godlike being from another world, but he or she is offering a blend of science and religion that offers a theology that seems more applicable to the problems of modern humankind.
According to the UFO prophets, the space beings have advanced information which they wish to impart to their weaker cousins on Earth. They want humankind to join an inter-galactic spiritual federation. They are here to teach, to help awaken the human spirit, to help humankind rise to higher levels of vibration so that the people of Earth will be ready to enter new dimensions.
Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance can account for the psychological consequences of disconfirmed expectations. One of the first published cases of dissonance was reported in the book, When Prophecy Fails (Festinger et al. 1956). Festinger and his associates read an interesting item in their local newspaper headlined "Prophecy from planet Clarion call to city: flee that flood." A Chicago housewife, Mrs. Marion Keech, had mysteriously been given messages in her house in the form of "automatic writing" from alien beings on the planet Clarion, who revealed that the world would end in a great flood before dawn on December 21. The group of believers, headed by Mrs. Keech, had taken strong behavioral steps to indicate their degree of commitment to the belief. They had left jobs, college, and spouses, and had given away money and possessions to prepare for their departure on the flying saucer, which was to rescue the group of true believers.
No one can deny that you are thorough and concise in your posts, but it also has almost a vendetta approach to it at times.
also, over the recent months, posting in this forum isto automatically run a gauntlet of naysayers and mind numbed self appointed lords of reality that are going to either de-rail each thread or hound the op to the point many will not even consider starting a thread
It is very simple, actually, for we are either going to discover that it is a story and nothing more, or it will turn out to be a factual account; if it is just a tale,oh,well, chalk up another one; if it isn't just a tale we are all in for a very interesting future in the days ahead.
