Roswell-Alien Coverup


"On 23 June, 2012, in an interview for the popular American radio show, Coast to Coast AM, the CIA’s former liaison to the entertainment industry, Charles ‘Chase’Brandon made extraordinary claims about the so-called “Roswell incident,” in which the US military is widely believed to have retrieved extraterrestrial materials and bodies after a mysterious object crashed in the deserts of New Mexico.

Brandon declared:

"I also absolutely know as I sit here talking to you that there was a craft from beyond this world that crashed at Roswell, that the military picked up remains of not just the wreckage, but cadavers."

Most explosively, Brandon recounted an occasion when he saw direct proof of the alien nature of Roswell while conducting research at the CIA’s Historical Intelligence Collection (HIC) as part of his role as CIA Entertainment Liaison Officer (ELO). Brandon claimed he had the rare opportunity to look inside a box labelled “Roswell” containing “materials... papers... [and] other items” but stressed that he “cannot, will not, under any imaginable set of circumstances tell you what I saw in there specifically,” with the implication being that to reveal more specific details would be a breach of national security."

My first thought is: then why mention it at all? No, if I'm gonna believe any of these claims, I need something way more substantive than someone just saying they saw something but they won't say what.

I don't disbelieve that we've been visited by other beings but I'd sure love incontrovertible proof too.

Re: Roswell-Alien Coverup


Yeah.

And on a bit of a side note, it's the false claims that muddy the waters. If we are ever to get to the truth, we have to wade through so much crap like Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods, which was filled from cover to cover with out and out lies, misinformation, and at the very least, colossal misinterpretations leading to completely wrong conclusions.

The one perfect example of this is a photograph in the book he claimed was evidence an alien race had made a runway for their spacecraft in the high Andes. In the picture, you can see a pair of whitish parallel lines running off into the distance.

However, this picture was taken at ground level. The lines turned out to be only a small part of a large work of art made by the ancient peoples of the area. That work of art was a bird and the two lines Von Daniken claimed were the outlines of a runway were in fact just a part of one of the legs of the bird.

His book turned out to be total bullshit. Basically, he was a modern day snake-oil salesman who got rich off the people who bought in to his chicanery.

As I said above, we need to be rigourous in our pursuit of the truth if we are ever to determine beyond a doubt whether or not we have been visited.

Hey, I'm ready...bring 'em on! I think the purpose for articles like the above is to get the public used to the idea that our space kin are out there. Many earthlings, at this point, would be scared sh!tless if a ship landed in their backyard tomorrow. emoticon

But you'll notice that there'll be a lot more reported sightings, a lot more UFO TV shows in the coming weeks -- and, yes, when the time is right (later in the year, according to Matthew Ward's message), they'll finally make themselves known to us. More consciousness-raising needs to be accomplished by us humans, 'tis said, but we're getting there!

I hope Larry King is at the ready to do his UFO special. emoticon

Kitty, have you ever read Arthur C. Clarke's novel Childhood's End?

The story revolves around mankind's first contact with aliens and it is one of the finest science fiction novels ever written, imho. emoticon

No, I haven't, Chunky. Never got into science fiction or those Star Trek TV movies, etc.

(Years ago I had some very amazing "hands-on" experiences myself, though. emoticon )

Childhood's End is one of the most literary works in science fiction. It is all about the characters, not gadgets. And there's a bit of woowoo in there too, about how prepared -- or not prepared -- we are for first contact. emoticon

Re: Roswell-Alien Coverup


Yeah, I think Arthur C. Clarke was one of the good guys, and knew more about UFO "truths" than he dared admit. So he let it all out in his fiction. As I say, I haven't read the book, but it sure does sound like what the channelings from the Galactics are presently telling us. Wonderful stuff ahead for us -- yeah, the "Golden Age"! emoticon

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childhood%27s_End

"Childhood's End is a 1953 science fiction novel by the British author Arthur C. Clarke. The story follows the peaceful alien invasion[1] of Earth by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival ends all war, helps form a world government, and turns the planet into a near-utopia. Many questions are asked about the origins and mission of the aliens, but they avoid answering, preferring to remain in their space ships, governing through indirect rule. Decades later, the Overlords eventually show themselves, and their impact on human culture leads to a Golden Age. However, the last generation of children on Earth begins to display powerful psychic abilities, heralding their evolution into a group mind, a transcendent form of life."

From: http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/E/etinteladv.html

"If other intelligent races exist in space, the chances are high that some of them will prove to be much more scientifically and technologically advanced than we are ourselves. The astonishingly rapid progress made, for instance, in the development of computers over the past few decades shows what dramatic strides can be achieved by a technologically ambitious race in a relatively short period of time. Given another century or so, humankind may have acquired capabilities in genetic engineering, nanotechnology, life prolongation, artificial intelligence, space propulsion, and other fields that, at present, we can barely imagine. As Arthur C. Clarke once wrote: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

What would an alien race be like that was a thousand, or a million years, ahead of us? Would they have evolved so far in ways we cannot yet conceive that we would be as unaware of their presence and activities as ants are of human beings? One of the arguments sometimes put forward against the existence of advanced extraterrestrials is that if they were present we would have picked up signals from them by now. However, beings that are significantly ahead of us might lie beyond our communications horizon; that is, we may simply not have the means to tap into their conversations. A communications horizon of only 1,000 years might render us oblivious to 99.9 percent of the intelligent technological races in the Galaxy (see Drake Equation). Another argument is that advanced intelligence would leave clear visible signs of its existence – large-scale engineering projects in the Galaxy (see astroengineering) which would be the equivalent of bridges, highways, and skyscrapers on Earth, or, alternatively, a profusion of self-replicating spacecraft (see von Neumann probes). But this, again, assumes too much and is based on a parochial extrapolation from our own, present-day capabilities. For all we know, very advanced stellar and galactic engineering projects have the appearance of natural celestial objects, so that we may be looking straight at them without realizing their true nature. Or perhaps, more likely, the devices of highly evolved species are not dramatic and obvious, but are subtle and discrete so that they are simply undetectable from afar. It may be, for example, that instead of great starships, the most advanced races employ elevator-sized cubicles to "beam" themselves instantaneously to any point in the cosmos. Science fiction writers once envisioned future computers the size of planets. But, in fact, computers have shrunk in size and may soon be so small and adaptable that they will blend unnoticed into our environment. "
