The World Trade Center UFO

It was there. No doubt. I've seen various kinds of footage, at various angles and from various camera-men, and I am still wondering how come NO ONE has emphasized the fact that something at great speed zoomed passed just after the second plane hit. There's scores of footage on YOUTUBE, but seeing as everyones a whiz with photoshop these days, I tend to go with broadcasted media footage.
Was it a rocket? And if so, who sent it? And if it wasn't a military projectile of some sort, than it is most certainly unidentified, and it's flying and it's an object, so ladies and gentlemen, behold...the WTC UFO:

What do you think?

THE PARACAST

November 25, 2007 (NOW PLAYING!): The Paracast takes you on a journey to a world beyond science, where UFOs, poltergeists and strange phenomena of all kinds have been reported by millions across the planet. The Paracast interviews long-time researchers in the field, to shed light on the mysteries and complexities of our Universe and the secrets that surround us in our everyday lives.

Join Gene and David as they explore the realms of the known and unknown, and hear great stories of the history of the paranormal field in the 20th and 21st centuries.

This week, historical researcher Richard M. Dolan, author of "UFOs and the National Security State," explores the possibilities of government secrecy and its potential impact on disclosure. He'll also bring you up to date on the progress of the long-awaited second volume in the series.

Keith Chester @ BOA

The first half of a massive interview with Keith Chester about his excellent book "Strange Company", detailing the often overlooked but critically important Foo Fighter era in Ufology. In this installment, we cover the surprising variety of actual Foo Fighter objects that were reported to be seen, how the Allied Forces investigated the Foo Fighters, notable figures from that era, ten key Foo Fighter cases discussed in detail, and the explosion of the Foo Fighter story on American shores. And that's just Part One.

It's an intensely thorough edition of BoA : Audio, where you're almost guaranteed to walk away having heard something new. A must-hear interview for any serious student of Ufology's rich history.

Full Preview : We start out with the standard bio / background as we find out who Keith Chester is, how he gravitated towards looking at the UFO phenomenon, and the fascinating story of the first interview he conducted. Keith speculates on why the Foo Fighter era of Ufology seems to have fallen through the cracks of UFO history.

Diving into the Foo Fighter discussion, Keith details some of the various anomalous objects that were seen by fighter pilots during the war. Keith explains why there seems to be a lack of Foo Fighter pictures from the era, despite there being a fair amount of photographic technology on the planes. We talk about the difficulty of having no clear nomenclature for identifying anomalous phenomenon in the air and how the Allied air forces classified the various sightings.

This leads into Keith talking about how the Royal Air Force and, subsequently the US Air Force, began investigating the Foo Fighters and how that investigation may have had roots prior to the start of WWII. This segues into a discussion on the role of Bob Robertson (of Robertson Panel infamy) overseeing the investigation of the Foo Fighters. From there, we find out about one of the most important figures in the Foo Fighter investigation era : Dr. David T. Griggs. We talk about his role in the war and in the FF investigation and the story of his final report on the Foo Fighters and how it has gone missing.

We talk about the disconnect between the pilots who saw the aerial phenomenon, the base intelligence people who were in charge of collecting the reports, and the higher ups who wanted to receive the reports. What was the culture on the base like when the pilots returned after seeing a Foo Fighter, was there a standard operating procedure with regards to the FF phenomenon, and did the situation evolve over time. This leads into a discussion on how prevalent military coersion of silence was inflicted upon the witnesses, as seems to be the case in modern military UFO sightings.

Next, we cherry pick some of the key cases of the WWII aerial phenomenon era, starting with the Sabinsky Case (1942), which Keith says is the "key early war sighting". Following that, we cover the Stuttgart / Schweinfurt series of sightings (1943), which saw a downed plane, glass balls falling from the sky, and the introduction of the term "flying disc" to the nomenclature of reporting. Keith explains why it is common believe amongst those in Ufology that the downed aircraft was ordinance related and not the result of the Foo Fighters.

Moving ahead chronologically, we then discuss the Leet case of 1944, which saw the first report of heat coming from the mysterious aerial object. After that, we talk about Len Stringfield's Foo Fighter sighting from August of 1945, which occurred over Japan soon after the war had ended, and the strange effect the presence of the Foo Fighter had on the plane Stringfield was flying in. Wrapping up the key case discussion, Keith tells us about the 1942 USS Helm sighting case which was the first reported cigar shaped Foo Fighter sighting, a 1942 case over Turin, Italy, a 1943 case over Germany, two reports from early 1944 of Zeppelin-like objects, a '44 sighting of a massive, motionless object, the series of big sightings in early 1945 which gave the world the name "Foo Fighters", and, finally, a ground sighting of the Foo Fighters from March of 1945.

Wrapping up this week's installment, we talk about Bob Wilson, of the Associated Press, who was largely responsible for breaking the Foo Fighter story in America. We find out how extensive the reporting, if any, on anomalous aerial phenomena in WWII had been and how long the media firestorm as a result of Bob Wilson's story lasted.

Keith Chester Bio

Born in 1957 - a sputnik baby - Keith Chester's interest in UFOs began in 1966 with a daylight sighting while growing up in Frederick, Maryland. Art, film, and music have been the constant fuel from which he has drawn inspiration throughout his fifty years. Around 1989, his passionate interest of the UFO phenomenon culminated in the book "Strange Company : Military Encounters with UFOs in WWII".

At present, he's researching for another book, making abstract films, and tapping into the world around him.

Star makers

(excerpted):

Ask the average scientist about the possibility of an encounter with an extra-terrestrial lifeform, and it's likely you'll find you've prompted 'the giggle factor'. After rolling their eyes, they remind you that the distances between stars are so vast, it's virtually impossible for any aliens to visit us.

But a potential flaw is assuming an extraterrestrial civilisation would be only a few hundred years ahead of us in technology. How about civilisations that may be a million years ahead of ours?

The late scientist and author Carl Sagan once asked: "What does it mean for a civilisation to be a million years old? We have had radio telescopes and spaceships for a few decades; our technical civilisation is a few hundred years old ... an advanced civilisation millions of years old is as much beyond us as we are beyond a bushbaby or a macaque."

The Dead Speak On Roswell Will We Listen (UFO MEDIA MATTERS BLOG)

(excerpted:)

Dear Reader, are you tired of the spin doctors telling you what it is, and what it’s not on the Roswell story?

I’m asking: why don’t we try something truly way out in our society? Why don’t we agree to hear it from the people who were there?
Who knows, maybe these 600-plus witnesses might clarify what really happened…

UFOs baffle O.C. earthlings

(excerpted):

The hoax master has fooled thousands. But now, it appears, the jig is up. Three golf carts of security guards and uniformed men converge on Linn Murphy in a dark park behind the Orange County Fair.

They've got him – and the so-called UFO he's been hovering tonight over the fair's packed concert.

“Are you flying something?” one of the men shouts.

Police Investigate Bizarre Emergency Call From Bishop

Sounds to me like little grey men are infiltrating the church.

Regarding So-called "Alien Abductions" by Michael Horn

All I have to say about the *entirety* of this article is that MICHAEL HORN presumes too much. He most certainly PRESUMES that E.T.'s think like us. Well, they shouldn't, because simply put, THEY AREN'T US. And that having been said, we don't think like them...which is why we run around in circles, chasing our tails, trying to figure them out. Who's to say that ALIEN ABDUCTIONS aren' their way of trying to figure us out? So simple, yet so probable. Too many people like to look down on the human race. Too many humans...and yet, what if there is something about us that puzzles these 'creatures' from elsewhere? What if they can't quite figure out who and what we are no better than we can? I think it's about time that people started thinking outside the box if we are going to contemplate the minds of beings living outside this solar system.

And the story just keeps spinning...

I doubt whether the Peruvian *meteorite* mystery will die out anytime soon, and I am thinking, "Why should it?" Sometimes it takes things like this to reinvigorate the peoples belief in something other than the norm. When things like this happen, and scientists are rolling their eyes, while Ufologists are taking down interviews, the people in the midst of such matters are looking around at the world they live in and some part of them is thinking just how grande and mysterious the world truly is, and that always incites hope. We need some hope.

The PERUVIAN impact---a closer look.

The recent asteroid impact in Peru, near Lake Titicaca had me thinking about the area moreso than the incident. I've read plenty of things on Lake Titicaca, mostly as an archaeology enthusiast, and what I have found, I feel can add to the folklore of the area and can perhaps explain why such an impact is getting so much press, as well as a conspiratorial reception from certain people.

Parallel universes exist-STUDY

This mathematical *discovery* by Oxford Scientists seems to prove so...

But me, personally, I always saw the Universe like a cake that's been sitting in the oven too long. It implodes, you get a smattering of batter on the oven before the cake caves in (or atleast my cakes do this), and it's like if the universe, in the beginning exploded and then imploded, much like said cake, you would get smatterings of debris, hence, galaxies on the outside (the oven) and the inside, (the cake pan), so um...which part of the universe is mimicing which?

But then again...I don't know any of this stuff, I just make it up as I go along. Like everyone else...

STARGATES

I had a dream last night...actually, more like a nightmare. That some wayward scientist found a cave with a huge door inside. He couldn't get it opened so he called in the army (yes, it was a dream and in dreams these things happen), and they came barrelling in like soldiers out of a Michael Bay movie. They blasted the door but no dice. And then finally, a woman steps through. Sharply dressed...I got the impression that she was the President. Don't ask. She pulled on the old handle, the door came open, a great gust of wind and dust and debris issued forth. Than came a god-awful howl and the sky turned black and I woke up thinking, " Holy sh_t, someone opened up the door to hell." Don't even know why I came to that conclusion, but it got me thinking about Stargates, so here is wikipedia's definition.
(CLick the link above)

In other planets, what would our homes look like?

This just makes me think about the MARTIAN CHRONICLES...but a look at the prototypes and all I can wonder is that our ancestors did indeed know something we don't because the architecture is as much 'old' as it is 'new'. Take a look and see for yourself.

*NIHT*

Nothing important happened today. That was the title of an X-files episode. On that day, a lot of things happened. It was a kind of joke that floated around for a while. Something big happens...but nothing important happened today. And so it goes in the realm of Ufology. Everyday people see things, everyday sightings are reported, and yet everyday, we turn a blind eye because the evidence we seek just isn't there. Nothing important happened today.
As far back as seven years ago, I used to wish nothing happened. I was in the middle of a cosmic game of cat and mouse. I saw things and suffered things I thought were reserved solely for the pages of a Loren Coleman, Brad Steiger or John E. Mack book. My world was completely topsy-turvy, after so many years of studying the Supernatural/Esoteric/Ufological, I finally discovered that I was one of those stories in one of those books that everyone scoffed at. I was someone who was roused in the night by things unknown only to awaken the next day and exclaim, "Nothing important happened today," And the truth is, something *important* happens everyday, but no one seems to give a shit.

MORE AMAZING IMAGES OF IAPETUS

(EXCERPTED:)

The mystery deepens with the unusual light and dark hemispheres of Iapetus. One side is as white as snow, and the other is as black as tar. With the new Cassini images, you can actually see where the different regions mix. On the dark side, you can see spots where there are patches of white ice on dark mountainsides. And then on the bright side, you can see blobs of dark material. This dark material forms a very thin coating; probably only a few metres deep, since there are regions where impact craters have punched right through it, revealing white material underneath.

Large, Bright UFO Filmed Over New Mexico

excerpted:

On Sept 13th at approximately 3 o'clock in the morning MDT, an extremely bright fireball streaked over New Mexico, "It was terrifying," says eyewitness Susan K. Burgess. "I was stargazing outside my house near Santa Fe when the landscape started becoming very bright, as if a brilliant full moon was quickly rising from the southwest. The fireball itself [slowly moved] over the house and disintegrated with a great deal of scatter in the northwest sky."

TUNGUSKA METEORITE STOLEN

"Foundation director Yury Lavbin brought the three-ton rock to Krasnoyarsk after an 2004 expedition to the site of the so-called "Tunguska event" - a mysterious mid-air explosion in Siberia in 1908 that was 1 000 times more powerful than the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945."

Call me paranoid. Call me gullible. Frak...you can call me a sucker. But, a 3 ton rock disappears, nevermind the fact that this rock has to do with the infamous/mysterious TUNGUSKA EVENT, and no one thinks this is weird?

TRUST THE MAN

Stanton Friedman does not want to hear about underground dwellers building spaceships. He isn't interested in little grey people hopping dimensions within our own. Forget about our unknown cousins traipsing through unknown forests or living like Aquaman in unexplored seas. Stanton Friedman owns it all up to space. Outer Space. The final frontier. And for that, everyone has a joke...everyone has a gripe. Everyone but me. Because when everyone stops looking at the sky, I am putting my faith in the one man who still will. I can't say I agree with him all the time, but I know where he is coming from. Ufology is an enigma within an enigma. There's no room for who knows what better than whom. Know-it-all's don't belong here. Neither do show-off's or people who may have once entertained the idea of becoming famous for the sake of being famous. Ufology is for people with their feet firmly planted; rooted in the subtext of the unknown. Who are you going to turn to when things really simmer at the surface? The guys who write a zillion books but don't know diddly and have a problem with everyone else and everyone else's theories. Or, the guy, who although biased, has maintained a state of formidable balance in an area where formadibility is nonexistent. In essense, trust the man who when this field gets weighed down by bull and banter, will still keep his eyes to the skies, hoping...for the rest of us.

Gorightly On Roswell

By Nick Redfern

(Excerpted):

“To some, challenging the Roswell-dead-alien-theory is akin to roasting Ufology’s most sacred cow, which Nick pointed out during Sunday’s speaker’s panel. Unfortunately, there are those within the UFO field who see Roswell as the fundamental linchpin holding the entire ET Hypothesis together, and that if Roswell is proven to be something other than an alien crash, it might indeed bring down a whole Ufological house of cards, which is rather short sighted, but is nonetheless the sentiment I seem to pick up on when–among the Ufological set–anyone dares challenge the Roswell crash as anything other than extraterrestrial in origin. Which is not to say that Mr. Redfern (or your humble author, for that matter) has come to a definitive conclusion as to what happened at Roswell although Nick seems as open as anyone to the possibility of ET’s visiting our planet. The point he was trying to make is that we need to look objectively at all UFO cases, not only Roswell, and let the truth lead us where it may. (Leave your agendas at the door, please.) And if indeed Roswell was something other than an alien crash, then let’s be willing to face those facts as they emerge, and then get on with further research.”

VERKLEMPT

Sometimes I can't help but wonder if some supposed *ufologists* aren't just looking for something to fill a void in their life. You know the people of whom I speak. They are always knocking the realm of ufology down for the count. They are always cynical...they don't get along with anyone...and they don't really, truly believe in the phenomena. They just open their mouths and expell contradiction after contradiction. And then, in the end, they have the nerve to ask, "What's the use?" Or, "Who cares anymore?" My answer..."You don't, so back the frakk up!"

SuperMEMES and the Preponderance of Greatness

Every single one of us longs to be something more...someone better, than who we are. It's a feeling that drives some to fame and fortune whilst others whither in the shadows of anonymity. What is this driving force that makes us all want to be GREAT?
I doubt there is one person who has never heard of Superman, Hercules or Jesus. Those names are synonymous with GREATNESS. After spending most of my life with my nose in a comic book, and having a weakness for mythology, I have come to the conclusion that the SUPERHUMAN is not some made up being we humans use as tools for spiritual, mental, emotional and physical enhancement. Instead, I am of the belief that SUPERHUMANS may be a memory of our past.
Imagine if there was a time when we were bigger, fitter, faster and smarter than we are today. Imagine if there was a time when we were like (g)ods. There are stories scattered around the globe to support such ideas.
Michael Cremo said we are devolving and I can't help but wonder if this is true. What if we are mere shadows of what we once were? I think we only have to look at the Great Pyramids to feel the weight of a couple thousand years of lost power to understand.

ALIENS AMONG US

http://discovermagazine.com/2007/jul/aliens-among-us

Excerpted:

Benner believes there may be some organisms hiding on Earth today that are based not on DNA and proteins but on a more primitive type of biochemistry. A number of researchers now theorize that DNA-based life evolved from an RNA-based predecessor. RNA is an unusual molecule that can both store genetic information and act like an enzyme, cutting apart other molecules or putting them together. Benner is convinced that 4 billion years ago, Earth was home to simple RNA-based organisms that could find food, grow, reproduce, and even evolve. Over time, some of these developed the ability to build proteins and switched to double-stranded DNA to carry their genes.

That's cool. I did entertain the idea of going. But then I changed my mind. You'll find out why on Monday when my next article hits BoA.

Till then, for the newbies who still can't grasp the Roswell Incident story in its entirety, here' the wikipedia version. It does some justice.

Brad Stieger@BoA (Season Finale)

One of my All-time favorite people!

=========================================


The season finale of BoA : Audio, Season Two promises to be a landmark episode, as we welcome a true icon in the world of esoterica, the venerable Brad Steiger. In this lengthy and in-depth conversation, we'll be discussing what it was like for Brad to break into esoteric studies, over 50 years ago, at the young age of twenty years old. We talk about the lessons he's learned from all these years studying the paranormal, the evolution of his journey as a researcher, the explosion of esoterica from niche market to veritable cottage industry, his thoughts on the lack of cohesion in esoterica, the role of the media in covering the unknown, the hopefulness of the 1960's, the problem with today's newcomers to esoterica, and tons and tons more. It's truly the culmination of many of the big picture themes from Season Two, posed to a bonafide first ballot esoteric Hall of Famer, Brad Steiger.

Full Preview : In leui of the usual "bio / background" opening question, we begin this interview by finding out the event or series of events that initially sparked Brad's interest in the esoteric. We talk about his early interest in the esoteric and what it was like breaking into the field at 20 in 1956. He talks about his grandmother's frightening advice on his interest in the esoteric, his near death experience at 11, and the stunning, ephemeral, revelation he received and the reaction upon his return from near-death. He find out about some of Brad's early influences and the people who helped paved the road for his entry to esoterica.

We find out if Brad's early entry into esoterica was the exception to the rule or if it was more acceptable for young people to have an interest in the esoteric in the '50's. We get some advice from Brad for newcomers to esoterica and expresses his disappointment with some aspects of today's esoteric newcomers. He shares some of the lessons he learned from his early days of esoterica and his thoughts on what the ghost phenomenon may be all about.

We look at the evolution of Brad's work, through the various genres of the esoteric, and what shaped that evolution, leading him to different areas of research. He tells us how his UFO research started, the "beginner's luck" he had with regards to his book "Strangers from the Sky", and his how his initial reaction to the UFO phenomenon changed shortly after he'd started looking into it.

The next topic of discussion is the lack of cohesion in esoterica. We find out if it has was that way when Brad first got into studying the paranormal, which genre has the worst lack of cohesion, which fields are better for working together, and which field essentially tried to force him out of studying the genre. We discuss how and if this lack of cohesion can be changed.

We discuss the paradox of today's esoterica, in that it is hugely popular, but still marginalized by the mainstream. Brad shares an amazing recounting of what it was like when he first started doing radio interviews with skeptical hosts. We find out if the "giggle factor" existed all along, if if was better or worse back in Brad's early years in esoterica, and if we can ever overcome it. We also discuss the paradoxical problem of the esoteric desperately needing quality control over the researchers, without seeming to be censors.

Brad reflects on the hopefulness of the 1960's, the strange transition during that period that saw a newfound interest in the esoteric, his interractions with the "movers and shakers" of the time, like Timothy Leary and Ken Kesey, and Brad tells us what consistent study of the esoteric requires. We find out if Brad is frustrated with the overall lack of answers, so far, in esoterica and how he deals with that frustration factor.

This leads to a discussion on the role of the media in esoterica and if Brad is surprised by the inactivy and failure of the media to properly cover the esoteric and help to get to some answers. We get Brad's thoughts on conspiracy in general and how pervasive he thinks conspriracy runs. We also get Brad's take on the science v. politics debate within Ufology. We find out what Brad thinks the government knows about UFOs.

Next, Brad answers a question from Tina Sena regarding whether or not Brad ever feels unstimulated by the esoteric and how he cultivates interest in the genre. He then answers a question from Regan Lee regarding Brad's thoughts on paranormal Bigfoot. Brad speculates on the future and whether the human race is heading towards a crescendo.

Wrapping it all up, we find out what's next for Brad Steiger, including a new book coming this Fall, "Real Angels, Guiding Spirits, and Benevolent Beings", and the re-issue of his classic book "Shadow World" from Anomalist Books.

Lisa Shiel @ BoA

The penultimate episode of Season Two sees Lisa Shiel, author of Backyard Bigfoot, join the program to discuss her first hand research into strange elements of the Bigfoot, including an in-depth look at stick signs and braiding the manes of horses. We'll also be talking about problems with the evolution theory and why the popular Gigantopithicus theory for Bigfoot has serious issues too. Plus, cryptozoology's infamous "natural v. paranormal Bigfoot" debate, UFOs and Bigfoot, Lisa's take on being a woman in cryptozoology, big picture speculation on what the Bigfoot might be, and much, much more.

Full Preview : We kick things off by getting some background on Lisa Shiel and how she gravitated towards researching the Bigfoot and other esoteric topics. We discuss her transition from novelist to non-fiction writer.

From there, we dive right into Lisa's personal experiences researching the Bigfoot, starting with the "stick signs". Lisa tells us about how she first discovered the stick signs and what evidence pointed to it being Bigfoot related. We find out if Lisa is hearing about stick signs from other people, now that her book has come out. Based on her observations, Lisa speculates on what the purpose of the stick signs might be (communication with her or other Bigfoots, trail / territory markers, etc.) She also tells us why most Bigfoot researchers don't notice the stick signs. We get Lisa's response to the skeptics of her stick sign research.

Once she'd established that there may be a Bigfoot on the premises, what did Lisa do to get more information on it. Lisa gives an indication of how to look for stick signs and what elements to look for. binnall suggests an experiment for Lisa to try when communicating, via stick signs, with the Bigfoot. We also find out if Lisa has had any Bigfoot sightings, during all of this research.

We next look at the strange phenomenon of horses mysteriously having their manes braided overnight. Lisa describes these braids, how she first discovered them, and what makes her think they are Bigfoot related. We also find out if the mane braiding followed her to Michigan from Texas, as the stick signs had done. From there we cover some of the other strange phenomena that Lisa captured on her game camera, including orbs, a strange flying object, and a purportedly extinct red wolf.

Wrapping up the personal end of Lisa's research, we talk about how she wrote much of the book in first person, documenting her research and why she decided to tell the story that way. We talk about the problem in some areas of esoterica, where the witnesses are kept on the outside of the field, and find out if that has happened to Lisa at all.

Moving on from Lisa's personal research, we discuss her investigation of the evolution theory and some of the problems that are inherent with the mainstream version of the history of human beings. Lisa talks about the problems with using bones and DNA as indicators of human origins. We talk about the desperation on the part of evolution researchers to prove a human lineage. Based on her research of the evolution of human beings, Lisa tells us where she sees the Bigfoot and its ancestors fitting into the whole equation. She also points out some of the problems of thinking humans evolved here on Earth, as they seem ill-equipped for a natural setting.

Then we talk about the Gigantopithicus Theory that is tremendously popular in cryptozoology. Lisa points out some of the serious flaws in the theory that the Bigfoot is a modern day gigantopithicus. This segues into a discussion on cryptozoology's attempts to become mainstream by catering to mainstream science and how Lisa feels it is a futile attempt. We find out if she thinks mainstream science will ever accept Bigfoot research as valid.

From there, we talk about the UFO - Bigfoot connection. First, Lisa shares some of the evidence supporting such a connection. We discuss the huge divide within cryptozoology over the "natural Bigfoot v. paranormal Bigfoot" debate. We try and find out if the anti-paranormal Bigfoot contigent is the majority or the minority in cryptozoology. Does Lisa feel like the pro-paranormal Bigfoot contingent is growing in popularity. We also speculate on if anything can be done to bridge this divide or if both sides will just end up going their separate ways.

We get Lisa's perspective on being a woman in the field of cryptozoology. She talks about some of the sexism she has experienced in the field.

Looking at things from a big picture perspective, we get Lisa to speculate on what exactly Bigfoot is. She also explains how she reconciles the paranormal with the Bigfoot and why she doesn't think the government is involved with the Bigfoot at all. We get Lisa's response to the big picture questions of "Can the Bigfoot be captured ?" and "If Bigfoot is proven to be real, is it good or bad for cryptozoology in the long run."

Wrapping it up, we find out about Lisa's research group, the Mighican Upper Penninsula Bigfoot Organization. And, we find out about a future book from Lisa that will be co-written with Linda Godfrey, "Strange Michigan".

"Real" UFOs: A New Meme?

By: R. Lee

Excerpted:

"I’ve been noticing the use of the phrase “real ufo” recently. It seems to mostly come from the skeptic milieu, which is surreally ironic, since they often don’t “believe” in ufos anyway, have strange ideas about the whole thing -- as in UFOlogy being some sort of “church” -- and are, overall, ignorant of the entire phenomena. Still they push on, rejecting a lot of theories and ideas out of hand, often insulting “believers,” with ad ad hominin comments and chiding us for spending time on the whole silly thing. All this framed by the idea that there are “real UFOs” which of course invokes the question: are there unreal UFOs?"

Robert Hastings @ BoA

Robert Hastings has spent the last thirty years cultivating and investigating cases involving UFOs and nuclear bases. He brings his lofty research to BoA : Audio to share with us his take on this strange sub-section of Ufology. We'll find out about Robert's background and how he decided to focus on the UFO-Nuke connection, key cases like the Malmstrom AFB case of 1967 and the Big Sur case of 1964, cases involving various levels of UFOs tampering with nuclear weapons, big picture speculation on what it all might mean, and tons more.

Full Preview : We kick things off by finding out a little bit about Robert's background and how he ended up gravitating towards the UFO subject. He also reveals his unique connection to the infamous Malmstrom AFB UFO sightings of 1967. We find out what made Robert decide to focus on the nuclear aspect of the UFO phenomenon. Robert tells us about the difficulties in finding military whistleblowers and in getting them to open up about their UFO sightings. He also tells of his attempts to get information from the government about these UFO / nuke sightings, via the FOIA.

We discuss Ufology's habit of turning on whistleblowers and we get Robert's take on this unfortunate habit of the field. We discuss how the strange theme of UFOs over nuclear bases is not isolated to just the 1940's, 50's, and '60's, but actually is seemingly still going on today.

Robert then talks about what he considers to be one of the top half dozen cases that he has studied, the 1964 Big Sur sighting. (Robert's CUFOS article on Big Sur (.pdf file)) We attempt to get a ballpark figure on how many UFO / nuclear base incidents that Robert has discovered so far. We also attempt to determine whether UFOs tinkering with the nuclear missiles is abnormal for UFO / nuclear base sightings (i.e. are they usually just observing and rarely get pro-active).

Based on what Robert's witnesses tell him, we find out what the reaction is of the "higher ups" in the chain of command to the UFO sightings over nuclear bases. Given that all evidence seems to support that the UFOs end up disabling the nuclear weapons, binnall inquires as to whether they've ever activated the nukes, instead. We find out if Robert has investigated any other UFO / nuke sightings occurring in other countries, outside of the US.

Getting totally speculative, we ask Robert what he thinks is going on behind these UFO sightings over nuclear bases. We move on to discuss the trend of the US military being pro-active about UFOs over nuclear bases and their attempts to thwart the UFOs via engaging them.

We move on from the UFO / nuke connection to talk about Robert's investigation of the Paul Bennewitz saga, during the mid-1980's. This segues into Robert's investigation of the MJ-12 documents and why he thinks they are fraudulent and who were the parties behind the disinformation. He also talks about how his investigation into MJ-12 ended up creating a firestorm amongst the parties he alleged were behind it all.

Heading towards the end, we find out Robert's take on how the UFO field has evolved over the last 30 years that he's been researching UFOs. We also get his take on the science v. activism debate that seems to be going on in Ufology today.

Wrapping it up, we find out when we can expect to be able to pick up Robert's book "The UFO / Nuke Connection". He also gives us the heads up on upcoming speaking engagements in New England, around late October.

Robert Hastings Bio
Robert Hastings was born at Sandia Base, NM, May 6, 1950, during a period of high UFO activity at the base, and nearby Kirtland AFB. (That might explain a lot, he says, tongue firmly in cheek.)

His father, SMSgt. Robert E. Hastings was career Air Force, and the Hastings family were stationed at Malmstrom AFB in 1966-67, during one of the peak-periods of UFO activity at nearby ICBM sites. That's what sparked his interest in UFOs.

He received his BFA in Photography at Ohio University in 1972. He almost completed a masters program in Instructional Technology (media directed toward educational ends) but gave that up in 1981 to go out on the college lecture circuit to speak about the UFO/Nukes Connection. Thus far he has spoken at over 500 colleges and universities nationwide.

In 1986-88, he retrained in Electron Microscopy at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, CA, and received a certificate in Material Science applications. Between 1988 and 2002, he was employed as a laboratory analyst by Philips Semiconductors in Albuquerque, NM, but continued to lecture at colleges part-time, averaging 25-30 programs per year.

He is currently semi-retired, but still lectures on UFOs.

Too many UFO chefs (not chiefs!)

This is a BIGGER mystery than we think...

Excerpted:


"Fossilized dinosaurs often have wide-open mouths, heads thrown back and tails that curve toward the head. Paleontologists have long assumed the dinosaurs died in water and the currents drifted the bones into that position, or that rigor mortis or drying muscles, tendons and ligaments contorted the limbs.

"I'm reading this in the literature and thinking, 'This doesn't make any sense to me as a veterinarian,'" said Cynthia Marshall Faux, a veterinarian-turned-paleontologist at the Museum of the Rockies.

Faux and a colleague say brain damage and asphyxiation are the more likely culprits."

UFO's are NOT COOL!

Excerpted:

"Ufologists (to use the term that identify UFO mavens and give them, they think, street cred) have been inept, that’s a given; they’ve botched the topic with internecine squabbling and self-glorification, but mostly by treating the phenomenon cavalierly, while pretending to study it seriously."

DIVINE REBELS, ALIEN DISSIDENTS!

By C. Scotty Littleton

Excerpt:

"The implications of the UFO phenomenon for anthropologists--or for anyone who would make rational sense out of the human condition--are profound. If Valleé, et al. are correct, humans have been the genetically exploited "lab rats" of one or more extraterrestrial civilizations, whose technological sophistication (evincing Sir Arthur C. Clarke's assertion that "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic") has allowed them to maintain a clandestine hegemony over this planet for at least the past 13,000 years."[2]

Connect the dots...er, monsters...


Recently Nick Redfern referred to the Monstrous activities in Cannock Chase. According to some of the sightings, these werewolf/bigfoot type creatures are seen entering and exiting earthworks...perhaps coming and going from a subterranean home. What struck me about all this is the mythology of the SKINWALKER. Supposedly they too entered and exited via earthworks, most notably earth MOUNDS that are held sacred by Native Americans. There seems to be a strong connection here.

THE PARACAST

May 20, 2007 (NOW PLAYING!): The Paracast, with Gene Steinberg and David Biedny, covers a world beyond science, where UFOs, poltergeists and strange phenomena of all kinds have been reported by millions across the planet. The Paracast interviews long-time researchers in the field, to shed light on the mysteries and complexities of our Universe and the secrets that surround us in our everyday lives.

Join Gene and David as they explore the realms of the known and unknown, and hear great stories of the history of the paranormal field in the 20th and 21st centuries.

This week, Gene and David meet UFO researcher and artist Tommy Allison, who recounts some of his own sightings and the troubled aftermath of his attempts to produce a forensic reconstruction based on the controversial Starchild skull.

Note: I enjoyed TOMMY ALLISON's articulation re: Lloyd Pye's attitude toward those who may seem threatening to his 'agenda'. Maybe 'agenda' isn't the right word. I don't want to get on anyone's bad side. A good listen none-the-less.

A Plan to Build a Giant Liquid Telescope on the Moon

Spirit Unearths Surprise Evidence of Wetter Past

Excerpted:


"We've looked at dozens of disturbed soil targets in the rover tracks, and this is the first one that shows a high silica signature," said Ruff, who last month proposed using Spirit's miniature thermal emission spectrometer to observe this soil. That instrument provides mineral composition information about targets viewed from a distance. The indications it found for silica in the overturned soil prompted a decision this month to drive Spirit close enough to touch the soil with the alpha particle X-ray spectrometer. Silica commonly occurs on Earth as the crystalline mineral quartz and is the main ingredient in window glass. The Martian silica at the Gertrude Weise patch is non-crystalline, with no detectable quartz.

PAUL KIMBALL @ BOA

Ufological pundit and documentary filmmaker Paul Kimball invades binnallofamerica.com for a special esoteric radio event, "Kimball of Canada : Audio, Behind the Best Evidence", a discussion of Paul's "Best Evidence : Top Ten UFO Sightings", which will be premiere that night on Canada's Space : The Imagination Station. In this stand-alone audio program, Kimball and I sit down for an in-depth, two hour conversation covering the "Best Evidence" special, both what's on the screen and what went on behind the scenes.

Full Preview :: We kick things off by first having Paul reveal, for the first time ever on radio, the actual order of the "Top Ten UFO Sightings". We talk about how Paul feels after revealing the exact order of the cases, after months of keeping the Top Ten a secret. Paul gives us the inside scoop on the change of the title of the film from "Top Ten UFO Cases" to "Top Ten UFO Sightings".

We go back to the beginning, to find out how "Best Evidence" came about in the first place. We find out what made Paul want to do a "Top Ten" style of film and what is the goal of the documentary. Paul and I discuss one of the strong suits of the documentary : that it is made by someone with intimate knowledge of Ufology and isn't an outsider to the field.

Paul explains the intricate process by which the Top Ten were determined. He also reveals which case narrowly made it into the Top Ten and what the goal was, as far as including this specific case in the film. He tells us which UFO expert gets the final word in the film and what overarching message Paul was trying to convey by giving this expert "the final word". He also explains how this message can also be seen (or heard) via the narrations of Kris Lee McBride.

From there, we discuss what constitutes a "best case", what elements are needed to take a UFO case from "good" to "best". Paul goes in-depth on the #1 case and covers the various pieces of evidence that contributed to making it the Best Case of them all. He also bemoans the fact that the #1 case was the far and away winner of the "Best Case" title, yet is still fairly unknown outside of hardcore UFO researchers. We touch on one case that didn't rank as high in the Top Ten as binnall expected and Paul explains how that case may have suffered from similar cases "splitting the vote" and an over-emphasis of one key witness to the case.

We take a thorough look at two unique cases in the Top Ten, one where the sighting took place not on Earth, but in space and a case which occurred nearly 500 years ago. We'll also cover the #2 case, which stands out for its surprising international flavor, but also seems to fall through the cracks when discussing more "popular" UFO cases, which turns into a discussion on the insular nature of US Ufology. This segues into a look at the chronological trends associated with the Top Ten cases, why it appears like the "best cases" peaked between the 50's and 70's, and how that is actually kind of an illusion, but also has merit. Out of that discussion, Paul reveals which major UFO case from the 1990's didn't receive many votes at all and which fairly obscure case from almost the same year did make the Top Ten.

Paul explains how he tackled the challenge of covering all the cases within the confines of a 47 running time for the film. After that, we talk about Paul's trip to Rendelsham for filming segments for the special, including the strong impression the forest left on him and his "Linda Moulton Howe moment". Kimball strays wildly off topic and shares his ideal Rendelsham adventure.

Looking at the film from behind the scenes, we ask Paul how he tackled the issue of using stock footage, something he crapped on back in our interview from September. From there, we talk about the animations in the film and how Paul went about getting those made for the film. We find out how Paul dealt with the problem that plagues UFO documentaries here in the US, that being "giving skeptics equal time". This segues into a discussion of SETI and Seth Shostak, who have become the de facto debunkers of the modern era.

Next we look at some of the cases that didn't make the Top Ten, including one interesting trend that seems to go against what one would think would make a good UFO case. We discuss that trend and what might be the true causes behind it. This leads to a discussion on Roswell, where it placed in the big picture of the polling and why it isn't a Top Ten case.

We'll find out what surprised Kimball the most about the Top Ten cases, both that made the cut and those that didn't. He also shares with us some insights from the poll he held @ his blog and what the differences were between those picks (voted on by readers) and the picks of Ufologists. Is there an 11 to 20 "Best Cases" and how deep does the pool of good cases go. Kimball's response to a question results in an ultrarare double "wow" from binnall.

Heading towards the end, we find out what other lucky country will be seeing "Best Evidence" sometime soon, what other countries it may be coming to in the future, and what country is the hardest to get to pick up the special. Paul also gives us his best guess as to when the DVD of the film will be available. We speculate on whether or not Paul will experience a form of post-partum depression, now that the film is finished and delivered.

Wrapping it all up, Paul puts over the folks who helped him make the film and he tells us what's next for him, film-wise and, looking far down the road, a potential project that just may involve binnall.

"Kentroversy" @ BOA

Internet conspiracy pundit Kent Daniel Bentkowski is our guest as we delve into a number of shadowy realms of esoterica. In this week's first installment, we'll find out Kent's intriguing background and how it led him to the esoteric, the origins of "Kentroversy", and why he calls his work "research journalism". KDB also tells us about Hilary Clinton being preordained to be President and discusses the '08 election, the microchip and global agendas, and false flag terror attacks.

Full Preview : We kick things off by finding out a little about Kent Daniel Bentkowski and how he got interested in the esoteric. KDB explains why he calls his work "research journalism". We discuss the overall goals of kentroversypapers.net. Kent reveals his unique connection to the Illuminati that opened his eyes to a global agenda. Wrapping up the background discussion, we talk about some of the people who have inspired Kent's work throughout his research.

We then move on to discuss some of the "special reports" @ kentroversypapers.net, starting with "Hilary Clinton's Hidden Agenda of Manipulation". KDB tell us what caused him to focus on this story. Binnall plays Devil's advocate, asking if Hilary's campaign is just as stage managed as all the other candidates', thus there is no conspiracy. Kent also tell us what he sees as the outcome of the 2008 election and how certain it is already. We speculate on how much of the predetermined nature of the election is known to the actual candidates. Wrapping up that portion, we talk about what Kent sees as a "grooming process" for a future George P. Bush presidency.

From there, we discuss another Kentroversy Special Report, focusing on the "Microchip Agenda". Kent reveals what tipped him off to the agenda and then goes through the gradual, five step process, that sees a microchipped population. Kent also tells us where he thinks we are on the scale of gradualism towards a chipped population. Kent then explains the downside to a microchipped population.

Next, we discuss Kent's four part series "Anatomy of a False Flag Terror Attack". We start out by talking about what a false flag terror attack is and what some of the main points "of note" are when looking for an FFTA. Kent explains the global agenda and how it is the end game of False Flag Terrorism. From there, we discuss the Luciferian aspect to the global agenda, including the influence of Luciferianism on rock and roll.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Kent Daniel Bentkowski Bio
Kentroversy is the pen-name of Kent Daniel Bentkowski, a research-journalist from the Buffalo, New York USA area, which is a short drive away from Niagara Falls. The name came from his best friend, who one day long ago, mentioned that because of Kent's journalistic specialty, that he was always trying to start a "Kentroversy". He knew immediately upon hearing this nickname, that it suited him perfectly.

He has been a published author since 1985, when he sold his first article for twenty dollars. Since then, he has been writing and working as a journalist and researcher pretty much full time. He also has the ability to see the bigger picture, and as such, he has felt obligated to add his voice to those calling out from within the darkness that surrounds this planet.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Next Week :
Kent Daniel Bentkowski (Part 2 of 2)

Our conversation continues with internet conspiracy pundit Kent Daniel Bentkowski. In this concluding installment, we have an extended discussion on esoteric messages found in popular films like "A Bug's Life", "Breakfast Club", "They Live", and others. Plus we'll get KDB's take on esoteric television shows of note, the UFO phenomenon, and Timothy McVeigh. And, of course, the requisite "tons more". It's a marriage of esoterica and pop culture in an enlighting BoA : Audio.

Air Force confirms Bolivian UFO crash

UFO MYSTIC

Here be Dragons


I had to post this because I still find it fascinating how deluded people can be. The year is 2007 AD and we are still plagued by the inaccuracies of history and ancient history, to the point where it becomes so easy to criticize our ancestors with no basis in fact. I find it very hard to believe that ancient peoples were not intelligent enough to know the difference between a giant, winged creature expelling fire from its throat, and a giant cat...especially considering that many of the dragon tales that have trickled down to us through the ages have rarely if ever consisted of ancient peoples finding dinosaur remains and ASSUMING they were dragons. Infact, many of the stories we do know are face to face encounters with living creatures. The LORE of the Dragon is not so easy to expell after all.

Did Ancient Biotech Create "Nephilim"? Will Modern Science Bring Them Again?

An article by Thomas Horn on the origins of FALLEN ANGELS (a.k.a., Ancient Astronauts).

Return to the Moon vid

Original Astronaut Wally Schirra Dies at 84

Excerpt:

"Schirra's first space flight came on October 3, 1962, as pilot of Mercury-Atlas 8. His spacecraft, which he named Sigma 7, made six orbits of the Earth in 9 hours and 13 minutes, proving that a pilot could carefully manage the limited quantities of electricity and maneuvering fuel that longer, more complex flights would require.

Schirra chose the name Sigma because it symbolized engineering precision, and a precisely engineered flight was the result, ending with a splashdown just five miles from the carrier Kearsage in the Pacific Ocean. True to his Navy background, Schirra elected to remain aboard the spacecraft until it was lifted to the deck of the carrier."

William Burroughs, Whitley Strieber, and Ufo's

Excerpted:

"It seems natural that someone who had written about drugs, Mayan gods and paranormal voices would seek contact with extra-human intelligence. Burroughs most likely saw it as an opportunity to examine and perhaps question something or someone who inhabited the realms beyond western, 20th century ideas of “reality.” Without specifically mentioning it in his writings, Burroughs was treading the path of the occultist and shaman. What he found, among other secrets, was something that had been there all along: the struggle between good and evil, freedom and control."

The Holographic UFO-verse





A week ago, the world was in awe when the King of Rock and Roll performed
on stage with Celine Dion. The explanations ranged from CGI, to Holograms.
It got me to thinking, if we can master the basics of holography,
considering the concept was well concieved for Star Trek, than is it
possible that someone with far greater technical talents has pulled off the
greatest Holographic show this side of the galaxy?
The question is: Are the majority of UFO's nothing more than holograms?
Consider that almost every case consists of a craft appearing seemingly out of nowhere only to disappear into the ether. There is no trick photography. No wizard behind the curtain, so far as we know, and yet there is something about the UFO phenomena that is far beyond your typical idea that they are advanced interstellar craft.
There is one case that to me, spells out the whole concept of holography and UFO's. If you've never heard of the FATIMA apparitions, here is a briefing: In 1917, three children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta saw what they called the LADY OF THE OLIVES. According to the accounts, it was the Virgin Mary. Or so the story originally perpetrated. However, in recent times, the FATIMA accounts given by the church have been heavily disputed.
According to some researchers, what the children saw was not in the likeness of the Virgin Mary. On the contrary, what they saw was a being, resembling a 12 year old girl, with large eyes and an odd costume of intricate ball-like details, and an odd crown of still, even more balls, around her head. She was something they had never seen before. But she was not the typical VIRGIN MARY apparition.
Most intriguing is how the sun seemed to bounce around in the sky. Does that sound familiar. Or, how about many artistic depictions of rays or beams PROJECTING the image of the Virgin. This would not be the first time nor the last, that a sighting of such religious implications marked the emergence of a wholely new kind of UFO experience.
Was the FATIMA apparition a hologram? Some say yes, and some still say, BLASPHEMY. That is fine, but consider how eratic the behavior of most UFO's are; like holding a laser beam to the sky and then zipping it back and forth, randomly, with no apparent reasoning.
This is not to say there are no actual, physical craft out there. I have read many, many reports to validate the strong precedence of crashed, retrieved, and very much REAL crafts of a Extra/Ultra/Cryptoterrestrial nature.
But is this all some facade? What if there was an exchange of technology between our government and these beings at some point in history? Do we really think that some advanced race would show us how to build weapons of mass destruction? And if so...if these beings soul initiative is to watch mankind obliterate itself, than that in and of itself is a form of deception, because you don't tell the ant you're going to step on it...you just do.
We could very well be dealing with the greatest cosmic lie ever perpetrated. While we are looking one way, thinking to ourselves how fascinating it is to see these wayward crafts jetting across the sky from some unknown abode in the cosmos, we are essentially looking in the other direction---distracted---while the real crux of the matter, the true happenings are spinning about, right beneath our feet, but we are just too mesmerized by the light show to notice.

UFO Fact vs. UFO Theory

Excerpted:

"There are very few facts associated with the study of UFOs, at least facts that can be proven in the way most people will accept them. We have no control over when or where witnesses will see strange lights in the sky or experience other anomalous episodes associated with them. This places Ufology outside of the discipline of classic science, which demands controlled repeatability. Perhaps the word “Ufology” should be trashed! A more inclusive designation might be “Theoretical Anomalistics,” but unfortunately, we are stuck with “UFO,” for better or worse."

Whatever happened to our flap?
Did I miss something?

Michael Salla @ BOA

returns to BoA : Audio for a full length interview to discuss Exopolitics. We'll be talking about the goals of Exopolitics, its tenuous relationship with Ufology, and Salla responds to some of the critics of the movement. We also discuss 911, the Symington Phoenix Lights story, the recent release of French UFO documents (and Salla's surprising response) and tons more.

Full Preview : We kick things off by getting some background on what Exopolitics is and what the goals are behind Exopolitics. We discuss how many people in Exopolitics come from Ufology, but that there is still a faction of anti-exopolitics leaning people in the field and how Michael sees Exopolitics overcoming this factioning and how Exopolitics is markedly different from Ufology. We get Michael's response to the critics of exopolitics, who are jaded by the activism or take issues with some of the whistleblower testimony cited by those in Exopolitics.

Harkening back to some of binnall's complaints about Ufology, we find out if there are specific benchmarks that the Exopolitical movement is aiming for, from both a scholastic and political point of view. We discuss whether or not the present political system is conducive to a pro-UFO candidate or point of view.

We find out where Michael sees Exopolitics fitting into a post-UFO Disclosure world and how it plans to prevent the marginalization and redundancy that many in Ufology expect to happen to the field, post-disclosure. We talk about how "proving UFOs are real" may turn out to be the death knell for Ufology, post-UFO disclosure. Michael explains his problem with framing the "UFO question" on a strictly scientific basis.

From there, we discuss one of the recent papers on exopolitics.org, "False Flag Operations, 911, and the Exopolitical Perspective". Michael explains what motivated him to write this piece, which is somewhat outside the usual UFO realm of exopolitics. He also talks about why the 911 researchers don't want to touch Ufology and we discuss the differences between these two fields of inquiry. We talk about how the freshness of 911 helps to override the ridicule factor that has dogged Ufology for decades.

Then we talk about the recent UFO media flap and what the exopolitical take on this flap is, specifically Michael talks about the Gov. Symington / Phoenix Lights story that exploded on the scene a few weeks ago. We also get his take on the anti-Symington sentiment within Ufology.

After that, we talk about the recent release of UFO information from the French government and Michael explains why he feels ambivalent to the story. We get his exopolitical take on the 2008 presidential election and Hilary Clinton.

Heading towards the end, we discuss the Exopolitics Institute, what it is and what it's goals are. That segues into a discussion about what to do, should there be disclosure, with government officials who are complicite with the UFO cover up. Michael also gives us a preview of the Earth Transformation Conference, to be held in Hawaii this May.

Michael Salla Bio
Dr. Michael E. Salla, is a pioneer in the development of exopolitics, the scholarly study of the main actors, institutions and processes associated with an extraterrestrial presence that is not acknowledged to the general public, elected officials or the mass media. His interest in exopolitics evolved out of his investigation of the sources of international conflict and its relationship with the undisclosed extraterrestrial presence. His groundbreaking Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence (Dandelion Books, 2004) presents the first scholarly framework for understanding the political implications of the extraterrestrial presence.

Dr. Salla is an internationally recognized scholar in international politics, conflict resolution and US foreign policy. He has also authored more than seventy articles, chapters, and book reviews on peace, ethnic conflict and conflict resolution. He has held academic appointments in the School of International Service & the Center for Global Peace, American University, Washington DC (1996-2004); the Department of Political Science, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia (1994-96); and the Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University, Washington D.C., (2002). He has a PhD in Government from the University of Queensland, Australia, and an MA in Philosophy from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He has conducted research and fieldwork in the ethnic conflicts in East Timor, Kosovo, Macedonia, and Sri Lanka, and organized peacemaking initiatives involving mid to high level participants from these conflicts.

Is strange rock from UFO or just a piece of poppycock?

BINNALL OF AMERICA





One of our most ambitious episodes yet, as Tony Healy, co-author of "Yowie : In Search of Australia's Bigfoot", joins the program, direct from Canberra, Australia. We'll be delving into the Yowie mystery in-depth, following it's evolution from Aboriginal legend to modern day enigma. We'll discuss remarkable cases of Yowie interaction with everyday Australians, the Yowie renaissance of the 1970's, Australia's "other" mystery cryptid, the Junjudee, paranormal elements to the Yowie, and, of course, tons more, in this comprehensive, international edition of BoA : Audio.

We start out by getting some background on Tony Healy, how he got interested in the esoteric and his evolution as a researcher. We find out about the Aboriginal traditions of the Yowie and how it superceded the arrival of European settlers. We then talk about some of the Yowie sightings that came from the early European settlers. Moving on, we discuss the "forgotten years", between 1900 and 1975, where Yowie reports and sightings completely dried up in Australia. Following through on the evolution of Yowie research, we discuss the Yowie renaissance of 1975, when the creature burst onto the mainstream. We talk about what present day Yowie research in Australia is like.




From there, we cover the physical description of the Yowie and how it compares to the American Bigfoot. Next, we discuss the history of Yowie reports in Australia, starting with the Aborginal peoples' position on the Yowie, how they will only reveal some of their knowledge of the creature, why they are so circumspect about the creature, and what some of this hidden knowledge might be.

Looking at the contemporary Yowie situation, we discuss the "neighborhood Yowies", creatures purported to live on the border of wilderness and newly developed land, that in some key cases have frequent interractions with the families who live in the houses right on the border. Tony tells a compelling story of one family's attempt to record the Yowie.

We then talk about some characteristics from Yowie reports and Aboriginal yore, including them appearing after stormy weather, having an interest in human children, and being the sources of mysterious "Yowie bites" on trees. We then discuss one of the most perplexing elements to the Yowie mystery : the enigmatic Yowie foot. Tony tells us about some of the trends that he and co-author Paul Cropper noticed and documented in the book, via a thorough study of case studies broken down into charts based on time and season.

Moving on, we discuss the potential Yowie relative, the Junjudee, a small, hairy, ape like creature with an equally long history of seperate Aboriginal lore and some modern day sightings. Tony tells us some of the major differences between the Yowies and the Junjudees, which suggests that they are two different types of creatures. We also find out how the discovery of the fosilized "Hobbits" on an island near Australia could explain some aspects of the Yowie / Junjudee mystery.

Heading towards the end, we discuss the big picture question of just what is the Yowie. We cover the four different possible conclusions that the book comes to regarding the Yowie (not real, real, real but extinct, and paranormal) and focus on the paranormal aspects of the Yowie which lend possible credence to that point of view, in Tony's opinion. We also find out if Steve Irwin ever said anything about the Yowie in Australia.

Wrapping it up, we find out what's next for Tony Healy, including a trip to America on the horizon.

Tony Healy Bio
Canberra-based Tony Healy became involved in yowie research in the mid-1970s. Since 1981, he and "Yowie" co-author Paul Cropper have collaborated on many projects, notably in co-authoring Out of the Shadows: Mystery Animals of Australia, which contained a lengthy chapter about the elusive yowie. Over the past 30 years they have searched for lake monsters, hairy giants, out-of-place big cats and other semi-legendary animals in Fiji, North America, the Bahamas, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Nepal, Malaysia and in every state and territory of Australia.

Excerpt:

"Everyone will always believe who and what they believe. Anyone who wants to weed out those that they think are the crazies might want to stop and think for a moment, is it possible that some people think you are crazy? There might be some who want you weeded out.

First they might come for David Icke, then Richard C. Hoagland, then Jeff Rense and so on and so on, but they would eventually get to you."

Excerpt:


Are Extraterrestrials Here to Evangelize.
Carl Sagan with model of Viking Lander.

Scientist Dr. Carl Sagan in his book, "Intelligent Life in the Universe" indicated Earth had likely been visited by extraterrestrials numerous times. He states, "Sumer was an early--perhaps the first - civilization in the contemporary sense on the planet Earth. It was founded in the forth millennium B.C. or earlier. We don't know where the Sumerians came from. I feel that if the Sumerian civilization is depicted by the descendents of the Sumerians themselves to be of non-human origin, the relevant legends should be examined carefully." (Page 456)

Anunnaki devas on outer portions of ancient Sumer mural, Sumerian humans on inner portion surrounding a depiction: "Tree of Life" with Anunnaki placed on Winged-Disc above. Close up of wing below.

He goes on to ask, "What might an advanced extraterrestrial civilization want from us?"......He answered his own question by stating, "One of the primary motivations for the exploration of the New World was to convert the inhabitants to Christianity -- peacefully if possible -- forcefully if necessary. Can we exclude the possibility of an extraterrestrial evangelism?" (Page 463)

Evangelism is a method of bringing a belief system to others," The Webster's New Twentieth Century Dictionary states, Evangelize is to preach the gospel, from Greek Angelos, a messenger, to instruct in the gospel, to preach the Gospel, also to convert to Christianity." The sacred writings of most religions clearly claim that Angels or extraterrestrials brought their religious beliefs to Earth.

Dr. David Jacobs told me personally that virtually every abduction is accompanied by a religious or spiritual experience and that special knowledge is transferred to the abductee. Abductee's themselves also frequently claim a profound transformation, ranging from healing powers to spiritual insight, and a new awareness of humans' potential.

John Mack MD from Harvard also told me there was a spiritual aspect to abductions. The aliens attempt to create a bond, they are part of a benevolent alien family, and introduce a religious message from a higher being to save the Earth from some kind of destruction. Assuming all this is true, we need to discern the real alien intentions. They suggest the time is not far off when everything will change and they will be in charge. They often say they want a better world, and the abductee's have been chosen to help and infer non-abductee's are expendable. The angels in the book of Genesis felt that some humans were also expendable and destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah

WHY SHOULD ANYONE BE INTERESTED IN UFO's?

Greg Bishop:

"The study of UFOs, if taken in its entirety, produces some of the same results. An endless cataloging of cases for its own sake is little more than hobbyist pornography, but looking deeper for patterns and trends sometimes opens the door to not only a deeper appreciation for the subject, but a peek from the outside of our own current views of existence and its obvious limitations. Why can’t we agree on what causes UFO sightings, or what controls the phenomenon? A few authors have already pointed out that there is little or no evidence that UFOs are interplanetary craft piloted by aliens from other star systems. Still, the hardcore believers continue to dance to this enticing tune."
