Here's the deal I was involved with a man and a group of men and women, mostly bad (but a couple of well known) science fiction writers, who have been
pushing this whole Aliens visiting the Earth nonsense for years. They are not a "cult." They are too smart to be in a cult. They are a RACKET. They
were and still are making money of of people's mental problems. They con people who think they've met aliens, seen aliens, or been abducted by aliens.
These racketeers had weekly meetings at my home (which I and my wife were renting and allowing my "friend" to hold these meetings.) There they told
stories about how the promoters of the meetings were "experts" in the UFO field. How they could help people see UFOs. They ostensibly helped these
poor "abductees" get a self-help group together and took donations from them. This was in Santa Fe New Mexico, in 1983, every weekend of the summer.
They tried to get people like Oprah and Shirley McClain involved. They tried to sell jewelry, art and books based on alien themes. My "friend" (whose
full name I will give to anyone who emails me at: firstname.lastname@example.org) tried to get me involved in hoodwinking these people and selling these
artworks and writings. He showed me an entire packet of journals he had written on all this nonsense about aliens, Atlantis, abduction, etc. He
explained how after working the New Mexico carnival circuit as a kid he developed the entire idea of extraterrestrial visitors B.S.
He told me the names of those he was involved with and how much money he and they were making from selling fake alien art, writing, messages, stories,
histories, etc. He said it was a great racket and that the people we would be bilking were regular "rubes" and deserved to have their money stolen!
When I got irate and told him he would be leaving my home, my ex wife told me she was in love with him after I told her I was kicking him out.
Overnight, they got together, tried to poison me (succeeded in killing my Siamese cat who had ingested some of the food they'd served me...which
caused me to be violently ill for three full days), then they left for a UFO conference. Apparently they were hoping I would be as dead as my cat when
I had returned from a horror writer's conference myself while they were out and found they had left all four stove burners full on with pots of food
on each one. The pots were melted to the burners. Luckily the circuits had blown and the stove had not caught fire, which I believe was their
intention. In the end, when they found I had survived, my ex left me and kicked me out of the house.
My ex went on to become one of these fake "experts" who actually appeared on television programs dealing with Aliens. (I've seen the reruns from time
to time.) She and a newer ex husband were eventually run out of Europe by Interpol for trying to bilk some countess! My ex told everyone she had met
aliens, had sex with aliens, was abducted by same, etc. All of which were bald faced lies. I'd been with her 24-7 for thirteen long years. Every night
she awoke us both with nightmares she would have. She never was abducted. Both of us used to stay up late hoping to even see a UFO. (I had actually
seen one myself when I was 10, but not near me and never with any abduction scenario.)
She was never adept enough at writing or I am sure she'd have a book out by now. I tell people this story and they berate me for lying! In other words
they want to believe so badly in the lie they will attack anyone who tries to tell the truth. For years I have been trying to tell people this story.
But UFO believers will not be convinced. And the conversation always moves back to "Do you believe there are ufos?"
Of course I do, anything unidentified and flying around or seen in the sky is in essence a "ufo." Are there aliens abducting people and screwing with
people's lives? Maybe, but I doubt it. I think if a culture has come far enough across the universe to earth, they would observe it, document it and
nothing else. They would have no need for our resources, as there are billions of uninhabited planets to exploit much nearer to them than we are. They
would not need anything from us.
There's no such thing as "Unobtainium." There would be nothing they could not obtain. They wouldn't need water if they could harvest a comet. If they
have the technology to travel interplanetarially or intergalactically, then surely they would be like gods to us, having capabilities, weapons and
technologies so far advanced that we would not know what to do with such things. They don't need gold. They could make gold. Or diamonds, or
anything...just as we can do ourselves even as un-evolved as we are. No, what we want to believe of aliens and what the truth really is would be
something we could barely comprehend.
However I know this. We are a tricky little conniving race who preys on one another like lions prey on antelopes. And we are NOT to be trusted. I
know, because I trusted a friend and he showed me a Big Lie. He ruined my life. He tried to kill me because I knew too much. He stole my wife, gave
her an STD then abandoned her. That's what people do. If aliens were ANYTHING like us, we should be afraid...be very afraid! Most of this Aliens on
earth clap-trap is a bag full of bad lies. Believe me.
