I hired some weekly DVDs last Wednesday (they’re a few days late, I should take them back) and one of them was “Out of the Blue“. It discusses UFOs and the recent splurge in information being released from credible sources, like astronauts, professors and military personell.
My theory is (and for a second suspend any disbelief you might have) that these people that were around in the 1940s and 50s, when most of the “cover-ups” (like the famous Roswell Crash) were taking place, are 80-90 years old now. They probably see that they don’t have many years left before their secrets die with them. It would explain why many of these respected people are coming forwards now, with disrespect for their classification oaths.
Case in point: J. Allen Hynek, who in the 1950-60s was responsible for working on the US Air Force’s Project Blue Book as the chief astrological consultant. His role was to maintain the public’s lack of belief and excitement in UFO phenomenon. Every case he was presented with he explained as either a weather balloon, swamp gas, mass hallucination (I like this the best) or misinterpretation of known technologies, like helicopters or airplanes. Several years ago he announced that he was responsible for “covering up” the USAF’s findings, and he founded the Center for UFO Studies.
And there’s a stack of old Army, Airforce, Navy and Intelligence dudes that want to come forward and tell what they know. These aren’t your average crackpot types either, we’re talking ex-big guns, from the US, the UK, Russia and France.
It really got me wondering, how many people will read this article and think “Matt’s gone crazy” or laugh at it? How many pople laughed at my theology speil a while back in comparrison? I’d suggest there’s more evidence to back the existence of UFOs over a God. I think it’s interesting that if you believe in “little green men” your a crackpot, but believing in a God is considered normal.
Maybe it’s one and the same?
Either way, I really liked the documentary, and would recommend it for others that are interested too. It had footage from the 1990s, right up until 2001, which was cool. All the stuff in the 40s and 50s don’t seem to be as relevent, maybe because they’re not in colour? :)
My favourite was the discussion about the “Pheonix Lights” which occured in January 1998. It was reported by over 800 people, yet the authorities never investigated it (officially), or never relased any findings. I remember Channel 7 showing footage of this in the nightly news.
January 14, 1998.
Fitzy and I are ready to boogy-down with the Martian Men when they come and check out our wicked place. Maybe they’ll drop in on the 17th for a dance, and to show us how they spin the decks on their planet?
What does everyone else think?
