As I don't want to read any more of what I already know about Greer, may I suggest that we do not post any more sarcastic remarks at Greer, but ask
the believers of the Greer road show to come forth and present their evidence in support of him, just in case we have missed something.
That's kind of why I did this post. I was all set to jump in there as sarcastic as anyone and say, "That's no alien! It's a coyote with mange!" in
reference to chupacabra stories that always turn out to be sick coyotes. But I read that OP's plea for a civil discussion and thought it deserved a
sober reply. I hadn't seen that thread as a solicitation until hindsight, so I was going to post there until it disappeared.
Of course the issue is exacerbated by Greer's annoying personal characteristics. Yes, he's muscled and takes every opportunity to take his shirt off.
That shows narcissism and people react negatively to it, which I think is a big source of the sarcasm directed his way. He's also just annoying. One
of his favorite rhetorical tricks is to say something like this:
"I was contacted by a high level source I can't name and they gave me this amazing [insert something here]. I wish I could show it to you, but I just
can't." I'll bet he uses that phrase in nearly all his lectures now. It's part of the allure. Greer has a SECRET. He's part of the in-crowd! He
clearly enjoys being the center of attention, getting applause. Someone posted a picture of him in a "relaxed" setting a few weeks ago. He has a glass
of wine and is surrounded by several very attractive young women. He has this big smile on his face. And you can just see it. He enjoys being a chick
magnet. The head of a cult has his choice, as it has been since the beginning of the species.
Originally I puzzled how he could leave the life and pay of being a doctor in the ER for a life on the circuit. In thinking it through, though, what
do you think life in the ER is like? I think it is extremely stressful. And if this thing is lucrative, or if he happens to have family money of some
sort, I think "doing energy work" with attractive women and indulging in a career in Exopolitics just might be a more attractive life than dealing
with gunshot wounds, trauma, and acute illness in a busy emergency room. I believe I read somewhere that he has daughters (plural) and managed to send
them to private colleges, so the man is not without resources. Whether he got them through charging for camp outs, real estate, or inheritance we
simply do not know. But the point is that from OUR standpoint it would be nuts to leave a lucrative career that took years of education, from HIS
standpoint it might not be.
Here is some somewhat old information
on Greer from the now defunct UFO Watchdog. Some of the
links to Greer's sites no longer work, which is telling in itself. Disclosure: I personally worked on this site for awhile as an editor. Most of the
Greer information was written by Royce Myers, who has now "archived" the site.
