Swedenborg, Adamski and the UFO experience:
I agree with the Article that Swedenborg had the luck of not being treated like Adamski. But I also think that it is all in the execution. If a guy is going to talk about Venusians as some sort of life-altering epiphany, and he's eloquent enought to pull it off, people are going to listen. They may not believe it...but they'll listen. However, a man who seems to be quoting from a Star Trek storyline isnt going to have so much luck, because it sounds too kitschy and contrived and people don't really have much reverence for kitsch.
