I've never been invited to Area 51 officially and have no interest in poking about on the perimeter, as a private citizen, when I obviously wouldn't get access to anything interesting. I expect I'll end up there at some stage, nonetheless, when some TV show director thinks it would be a good location for my interview. But I've avoided it so far. I had a narrow escape with this one, a month or so ago, but managed to do my interview in an air-conditioned office instead:

I live about 30 miles from Fort Hood, jets, planes and helicopters fly over our house daily.i am quiet aware of the sounds they make,this rumbling noise i heard was nothing like i heard before,you could feel the vibrations in the house that is when i went outside and got a better sense of the sound,it was a sound that put pure terror in my heart,that was no natural sound of a jet

I'm not a believer in 'chemtrails' and anyone who's ever seen how low crop-spraying aircraft have to fly to be effective will realize that spraying from 35,000 feet will have pretty much zero effect on the ground.

More generally, the idea that the elite want to slaughter 95% of the world's population is ludicrous and displays a fundamental misunderstanding of how society works. The 'pyramid structure' is undoubtedly unfair in many ways, but the point is that if you take away the base of the pyramid, the top falls down. The rich need vast numbers of people at the base of the pyramid, producing the food, making the products, serving in the stores and restaurants, cleaning the hotel rooms, watering the lawns, etc. In fact, far from wanting people dead, or sick, the global elite want more people healthy and earning more money. That's when they become consumers and add to the profit margin!

Nick,

Do you have any timeline of when you may be producing your own show investigating UFO/Extraterrestrial/Paranormal sightings?

Also what is your take on Mars One? Do you think the timeline they have set is achievable, I am sure you all of people would know what type of technology we possess to propel us in to space and on to another planet.

P.S. the YouTube interview you linked, your hair looks like Giorgio Tsoukalos lol!

Thank you!

What is your opinion on Dr. Steven Greer? Is he a respectable and valid ufologist?

Ok, let me chime in there too.

I always considered Nick Pope a very good and credible researcher and enjoy it when I see a documentary with him in it.

Nick, what is your current stance on the Rendlesham Forest incident?

In the past this was ONE of the few incidents which was cited over and over in the media and countless books as one of the most credible and solid evidences for UFOs, but in the last years there were some developments which put a damper on the entire case, mainly the alleged revelations by Jim Penniston in regards to the (ridiculous, IMO) "Binary Code". I myself can't help now seeing that entire incident as a giant hoax where the main witnesses lost any credibility. What is your stance on that?

What do you yourself consider some of the best and more solid cases, just wondering?

Whats the problem exactly with what I asked? He can take all this time to write out his posts but he can't provide a picture of himself with a written timestamp? Is it really asking that much? No it's not. And the 3 "amigos" you're referring to approving this means absolutely nothing.


You're right. There's nothing wrong with asking a question. But the fact you ask a question does not require an answer. Pope is not required to "Prove" anything to your standards of proof. He simply does not have to do it. We've already seen what a dim view he has of the typical conspiracy theories we bandy about here on a daily basis. No, he doesn't believe that Jesus can stop abductions. No, he doesn't believe in chemtrails. No, he doesn't believe in the NWO. No, he doesn't believe in a whole lot of things people here hold dear. Etc.

if that's not good enough for you, I understand that, but meh? Who cares? To me his views are refreshing, and it's the kind of thing ATS NEEDS to do more often so that it can live up to its motto of "Deny Ignorance," because, quite frankly, most of the stuff on here doesn't do that, which has led the rest of the world to label this place a "cranky conspiracy site." It's a good start and I hope to see more of it.

In World War 2, my great aunt worked at Bletchley Park with Alan Turing on something that we've never been able to find out about, it was a side project away from the main codebreaking effort.

The work is under a "forever publication ban". When she died a few years back, we gave her name to the Navy as she had requested a burial at sea, and they sent out a Navy Frigate with officers in full dress whites lining the deck and a full gun salute. Her name must have bought up SOMETHING with the Navy to garner such an honor.

Now, when I was about 12 years old, she gave me a book, oddly enough called "Above Top Secret" about alien cover ups, and said "you need to know about this stuff and don't tell your parents, they're not open minded enough".

Any idea what this project might have been? My mother tried for years to get answers from the Navy but got stonewalled at every turn.

Hey Nick, I worked as a game programmer for Electronic Arts, Pandemic Studios, and Microsoft Game Studios. So I know a couple of the guys at 2K and one indirectly at 2K Marin (the studio that made The Bureau). It's great to see you making the move into the game biz!

Anywho, I realize my question veered into an area you can't discuss. So I'd like to point you to the question again and reword it a bit.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I don't expect any comments on specific project names or partnerships, but I would be curious whether any multisensor data fusion systems were ever used to look at the UFO problem. Or if you can't comment on that specifically if something like that might have contributed to the closing of the UFO desk.

I know the USAF and MoD UFO programs were run on a shoestring budget. So I am not optimistic. It would just be nice to think the intelligence community used all the assets at its disposal. Any information you're willing to share will be immensely helpful as I move forward with a project I've been developing since 2009'ish (you might find it interesting).

Big thanks Nick,
-Xt

No worries, you're not alone. I asked a question on page 9 that went unanswered as well. I presume that either a. he doesn't have the time to answer all the questions, b. has no thoughts on it, or c. cannot or does not feel comfortable answering it. Mine I can kind of get because it would've assisted in identifying the likelihood of it being an experimental and quite possibly classified US aircraft. Or it could be a. he didn't have time to answer all questions. Who knows.

A healthy herd has a much better profit margin then a sickly herd.
Just talk to a farmer,he will tell you the same thing.

Hi Mr. Pope.

Forgive me if already asked.

In the planning stages of the remote viewing study carried out, you said on your website that the known remote viewers you planned to use for the study did not comply or reply. Didn't you find that strange? Do you think your results would have been different if your study included the legitimate remote viewers instead of the ones that had no declared track record of remote viewing?

You said you were not sufficiently impressed by the results of remote viewing, however, would you consider Jules Williams to be a legitimate remote viewer? Is there anyone you know that you believe to have extraordinary psychic abilities?

Thanks in advance Mr. Pope.

Hello Nick Pope, and Welcome to ATS.

Is there anything regarding your position with MoD as it applies to the UFO Phenomenon that you are still as of yet no allowed to discuss?
More appropriately, is there anything specifically UFO Phenomenon related you're barred from discussing until such time as information is declassified?

Granted, if you're not allowed to discuss it, then this would simply be a yes, or no answer, but, any elaboration you might contribute should 'Yes' be the answer, would be be greatly appreciated.




edit on 26-8-2013 by Druscilla because: (no reason given)


Druscilla asked this question earlier, and I think it has some serious merit. I don't believe you answered it. If I may use in part the spirit of her question, and possibly alter it a bit, my question would be:

Are there any ufo cases brought to the attention of the M.O.D. that you are forbidden to discuss due to your disclosure agreements? Yes or no would be a sufficient answer, I have no wish for you to go into any detail and risk breaking any laws.


Hmm, I guess not.

My question would be:

What, in your personal opinion, would be some possible reasons behind a government cover-up of UFOs, if one were to exist?

We've all heard "the public would panic and stock markets would crash" explanations as to why a gov might keep it quiet, but are there other, wilder scenarios that you might offer... from your unique perspective as an investigator and even more importantly, as a sci-fi author?

While I was aware of the MoD's dabbling in remote viewing, I didn't carry out the study, which was fundamentally mishandled. After a redacted copy was published in response to a FOIA request, I discussed this with people like Paul Smith, Hal Puthoff and John Alexander. All of them, so far as I recall, were appalled at the way in which the study was conducted.

The problem with this sort of thing is classification: the study was classified Secret UK Eyes Only and this precluded the sort of consultation with subject matter experts outside the MoD that would have been needed to ensure that we didn't repeat the mistakes of the past.

I don't know if the MoD study evolved into an operational RV program, though I wouldn't be surprised. As I explained on a recent TV show on this subject, the intel community regards remote viewing as a classic low probability/high impact situation: chances are, it won't work; but if it does, the potential payoff is so great, it's worth having a go. Yes, this is really how we think in the 'secret world'!

Finally, even if I knew the names of good remote viewers, I wouldn't reveal them, as it would make them potential targets. It doesn't even matter whether or not it works - the question is, do any of the bad guys think it works.
