When faced with persistent and known hoaxers this website has taken the appropriate action of banning all materials that originate from those hoaxers.
All News Web, for example. The salt-the-earth policy in regards to these hoaxers is justified as these people prey on the hopes and fears of the
faithful, the reasons as varied as the predators. They decay and distract from the discussion, casting further ill-fame on a subject already sorely
lacking in credibility.
Should this policy be applied to David Wilcock?
Who is David Wilcock?
Wilcock has tried to cultivate an image of himself as a New Age Renaissance-man, He is a lecturer, wannabe documentary film-maker, once helped run a
self-sufficient organic farm/commune in Kentucky (which closed within three years), jazz musician, and a psychic who claims to be in contact with
higher powers and the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce. Wilcock even co-authored a book about himself and his prestigious past-life. During his time as
farm-hand/construction worker and writing his book, Wilcock supported himself by doing psychic readings. In '06, Wilcock retired from giving readings
to concentrate on filming a documentary based on his research, moving from Kentucky to Hollywood. The film seems to have found itself in development
hell in the intervening five-years. In the meantime, Wilcock has busied himself by becoming a vocal and persistent member of the Disclosure movement.
It is here we find fault with Wilcock; along with being unquantifiable, his beliefs about his psychic powers and reincarnation are personal, having no
effect on us. However, his predictions of Disclosure can conceivably have ramifications for his audience; in predicting these world-changing events
that invariably turn out false, he is giving his audience false-hope.
Predictions of Disclosure
Since 2009, Wilcock has made several predictions about impending Disclosure...
November, 2009. Disclosure within no more than six
months or less!
November, 2010 Disclosure Is Actively Happening Now
May, 2011 Official Government Disclosure Has Begun
(One must wonder how it can be active in November but just beginning five months later)
In the earlier two cases, when Disclosure did not manifest, Wilcock invented excuses in attempt to make his predictions unfalsifiable. To him, it is
not that his predictions were wrong but other forces prevented Disclosure...
Disclosure, "The Event" and China's "October Suprise".
he speculates that not only was Obama threatened to not disclose in November 2009, but that China will soon ride in on a white horse and save
Japan: A Final, Desperate Attempt to Stop Disclosure?
. Wherein he
speculates the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan was an attack to distract from Disclosure, a disclosure he predicted in 2010.
Now, Wilcock is predicting Disclosure anytime before 2012. That is plenty of time to find or, if need be, invent new excuses when predictably (pun
intended) disclosure does not happen.
What to do?
There are websites claiming Wilcock is plant by an alphabet-soup agency to spread disinfo but such claims are as well grounded as Wilcock's claims for
Disclosure (to be generous to both). Still others think he is a more common species in the UFO world, a charlatan out to make money by making claims
to an audience who doesn't care if he is wrong or right as long as he is saying what they want to hear. Whatever his motives may be, they are
irrelevant to this discussion. Is he a fraud or he is a well-meaning fool? There is a difference between the two; simply being wrong even
consistently does not make one a fraud. To be a fraud, one must be seeking to purposefully deceive people. If Wilcock is a fraud and the community
acknowledges him as such, should ATS ban his material as they do other hoaxers?
