Life in the Universe

["Explanation: Almost every object in the above photograph is a galaxy." Via http://apod.nasa.gov] Interesting discussion going on at Dangerous Minds about the new FBI/Roswell files.  It came around to someone arguing with me that there is little chance of intelligent life in the universe.  I’ve seen people argue UFOs every way possible, but I’ve never …

SETI

From The American Book of the Dead (said by the Dick Cheney character): “Do you really think SETI sits around all day listening to silence? Of course not.” I think Seth Shostak is just doing his job. Either they hired someone who would be a devout debunker no matter what the evidence, or it’s actually …

Nazi UFOs

Nazi spaceship film sparks UFO debate A new report out this week in Germany in the magazine PM purports that there is “strong evidence” that a Nazi UFO programme was well advanced. Hitler ordered Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering to develop the super weapon that would change the war. The PM report quotes eyewitnesses who believe …

The Event

I had no idea that the TV show “The Event” is about  UFO disclosure.  Mostly because I don’t pay attention to new TV shows, even if there’s a huge “Event” poster on the side of a building close to where I live.  But I’ll watch anything about this subject.  Seems a bit like they’re going …

The Flying Saucer by Bernard Newman

Learned about this 1948 novel about a staged UFO invasion while reading Mirage Men. Strange rockets crash to earth in England, the USSR and in America’s New Mexico desert…The political and military leaders of the world are shocked into an unprecedented unity. To fight this common enemy, they must resolve their planet-bound antagonisms, from Cold …

Leslie Kean vs. James Oberg vs. Bad Astronomer

Leslie Kean has responded to James Oberg’s review of her book on MSNBC. Oberg is a famous debunker – not a skeptic, a debunker, i.e. someone who looks to disprove something no matter the evidence. His criticism was pretty lightweight – his claim is that because pilots can have skewed perception, this means their testimony …

Top Ten UFO Books

Mark Pilkington, author of Mirage Men (which I’m reading), lists his top ten UFO books for the Guardian. Here are my top books. Can’t say they’re necessarily the best, but they got me interested and obsessed in the subject and have stuck with me. A lot of these are purely speculative (like John Mack’s Passport …

The Day Before Disclosure

Well-made documentary with most of the heavyweights in UFO research (Richard Dolan, Nick Pope, Steven Greer, Jim Marrs…) as well as witnesses. Definitely worth watching. www.thedaybeforedisclosure.com

Mirage Men

I love the internet. I was just contacted to get an advance copy of the book Mirage Men, out in September in the U.S.  Recently learned about the book via an interview at the Daily Grail: TDG: In Mirage Men, you’ve done a wonderful job of presenting a very complex subject in a fun, readable …
