Jack Parsons and the curious origins of the American space program

Interesting tie-ins between Parson, Crowley and L. Ron Hubbard black magic experiments and the advent of UFO's...

Thanks for that Tina! Happens to be one of my favorite topics.

Funny, that some people still fall for this nonsense. Hubbard was further away from being a satanist that you are from being an alien.

I never said I wasn't an alien.

I read some stuff on John Lear and he comes across, to me anyway, as not trustworthy regardless of his biography. Anyway, as much as any of the stories presented are interesting or not, they are unfortunately just stories, not unlike the airship sightings of the late 1800s of which I believe most or all of them to be hoaxes or misidentifications. This stuff can still be good entertainment though and who really knows what, if any, truth can be found in any of it.

I am not sure what John Lear has to do with Jack Parsons, Crowley or Hubbard. As far as I know he wasn't part of that group.

I don't believe much of anything Lear says, but he sure is fun to listen to.
