The guy's got credentials, yes, but once again he's just telling second hand stories that he's been told, and also getting in a chance to
plug in an advert for his latest book.
Where do people get this idea that writing books about government secrets and an alien cover-up gets people rich? Let me tell you something, exposing
government secrets and alien coverups gets you one of two things: ridiculed on a massive public scale until death, or killed if you reveal too much.
That being said, it is true that the alien conspiracy is overwhelmed with unreliable second-hand information and the unfortunate prevalence of
disinformation (whatever its source/intention). The alien issue is shrouded in unanswerable questions and unreliable testimony. But the evidence for
alien existence isn't so weak that the theory can be outright dismissed with permanence. The fact is "we", humanity, have no idea. The "Elite"
might know, but that doesn't help us. None of their knowledge does, no matter how powerful it is. We
need to learn these things for ourselves.
It's not enough to say "we haven't found them yet, but they're real" - that doesn't help us. It's not enough to say, "we haven't found them
yet, because they're not real" - that's just downright absurd and hopelessly arrogant. And, ultimately; very dangerous
But of course, we ourselves are a hopelessly absurd and arrogant species in our own condition, no doubt, so it's no surprise that we can't address
serious existential concepts like "aliens" and "god" without degenerating into a violent uncooperative mess of shameful human conflict both
verbally and physically.
Verbal violence is responsible for the state of human suffering and inequality - not guns or bombs. Human apathy and prejudice is responsible for this
sad and painful condition, not bombs. The bombs come after the battle of conscience is lost in the men who use such things on each other. A man fires
his gun to end the life of another man because he wants to
. Not because he had a gun, or because he was told to.
Notice that the less personal the expression of violence gets, the easier it is to resort to? Hence why it's easy for these military-industrial
warmongers to destroy cultures & human lives without remorse, while more soldiers kill themselves each year than die in combat. The War begins in the
Mind. Therefore, the War
must be addressed from
the Mind - and everyone
is on the front line. 24/7. And by "The War", I of
course mean all human wars of all natures. They're all the same - including the war between alien skeptics and alien believers.
To suggest that aliens don't exist, and that it's impossible for them to get here, is so arrogantly and obnoxiously insane that I question how
"intelligent" we really are. Yet to say that they do
without having enough evidence to convince the population of Earth is crazy too. The
knowledge is not actionable
. It's stagnant. Useless to us.
That being said - my point is who cares if he's telling the truth or not, if the stories are second hand or not, if he wants to promote a book or
not... who cares
? The issue is not "Can I trust this guy?" - the question is, what is presently so?
And what do we do about it?
Because at the end of the day they can't all be liars. And our planet is strange, to say the very least, for very poorly explained reasons - at
least, by our "leaders". And the universe is very big, and constantly surprising. Plus, we're a very young species in the scheme of things... I
think we need to drop our obnoxious, arrogant know-it-all attitude and admit that we know sh#t. If aliens are out there, we have no way to tell. And
if they didn't want us to know they were there, we wouldn't. And if they wanted to invade us, they would've. And if they could help us, they
would've. So I think this entire issue is more complex than meets the eye. There's more "grey" in the alien situation than most people have the
courage to admit. And such is the nature of profound existential mysteries!
Anyway, I hope we get to the bottom of it all soon, because I'm getting sick of hearing the skeptics and the "believers" constant petty bickering.
Everyone's missing the point. The question is not "do aliens exist". That's irrelevant to the situation. The question is "are aliens coming here?
and if they are, what are we gonna do about it? And if they're not, then why is the planet so f#cking inexplicably crazy, and what are we gonna do
Either way, the answer to the question falls on us. The question itself leads to the same unavoidable dichotomy. And every minute spent arguing over
the details of the question is time better spent preparing to address the implications of the answer... because we haven't got very long before this
craziness gets proportionately ugly to its stupidity. We'll destroy ourselves if we don't start focusing on where we're going instead of where we
