I had a chance to meet UFO researcher Richard Dolan last weekend when he gave a talk at a public library in Toronto*. What very little he talked about his own beliefs about UFOs, including alien abductions, from what insiders have told him in confidence; people he trusts and from his own personal experiences was tempered with the fear that he may lose all his credibility as an objective and serious researcher because of the stigma that associated with those who claim more than we are alone in the universe but that "they" are among us. From my own discussions on alien abductions on UFO UpDates, Strange Days Indeed as well as other TV and radio media including a feature article in Excalibur, York's student newspaper, I continue to be approached by members of the York University community who are relieved that they can share their own abduction experiences with me - someone they can trust that who will listen and not ridicule them! The actions by individuals such as Phil Klass who are on a mission to publicly debunk UFO and alien abductions do not help those that had encounters but suppress the truth by promoting a new but false reality that goes against the knowledge and understanding our parents and all past generations and cultures had about who we are and our place in the universe... Nick *I gave Dolan many DVDs with information about UFOs, ET life and even Canada's participation in the secret ongoing parallel U.S. manned space program. One of the reasons why Bob Bigelow is prepared to support the 'Manned Space Program @ York University' is not only to find a way to get his guests to and from his next orbiting space station - a hotel (and sightseeing flights to the Moon?) is to get a chance to meet again the ETs from the secret close encounter he had with them many years before as a teenager. There are many others like Bigelow who privately study and thus are preparing the world for disclosure dispite efforts by people such the late Phil Klass who want to suppress the truth for motives I do not know about but can understand. As you will recall, Klass was an editor to Aviation Week (or "Leak") and Space Technology which over the years has confirmed many things regarding the reality of UFOs (eg. the two "asteroids" that entered Earth orbit three years before Sputnik - which BTW, Canadian government officials made contact with and established a secret safe landing place in Alberta for them after saucer shaped landing craft were chased and fired unpon by U.S. figher jets over Washington, D.C. over several days) including the ongoing secret roles of governments and private contractors in developing the newly acquired ET science and technology which still prevents me from seeing many still classified UFO files that go back to the 1950s.

Phil Klass Offered $10,000 to Steve Pierce of The Travis Walton Abduction Case! BRIBE BOMBSHELL! STEVE PIERCE WHO WAS WITH TRAVIS WALTON WHEN HE WAS ABDUCTED CLAIMS THAT HE WAS OFFERED A $10,000 BRIBE FORM THE LATE DEBUNKER PHIL KLASS TO STATE THAT THE ENTIRE TRAVIS WALTON ALIEN ABDUCTION CLAIM WAS A HOAX! WHY WOULD KLASS OFFER SUCH A BRIBE SINCE HE BELIEVED ALL "ALIEN ABDUCTION" CASES WERE "CLEARLY HOAXES" UNLESS THE WALTON EVIDENCE WAS SO STRONG THAT IT SUGGESTED OTHERWISE?! THINKING ALOUD: What would happen to the C-R-E-D-I-B-I-L-I-T-Y of the general UFO community if the REVERSE was ever proven to be true and someone in UFOlogy offered a $BRIBE$ to a witness to claim that an "alien abduction" had transpired when in fact it did NOT?! "The TRAVIS WALTON ENCOUNTER" Hosted by Investigative Journalist GEORGE KNAPP, Sunday, January 29, 2012 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgHh5ztt8qo [39:25 min] The OFFICIAL TRAVIS WALTON WEB SITE: http://www.travis-walton.com/ From: GIULIANO MARINKOVIC, Super Bowl Sunday, February 5, 2012 Dear Colleagues. This audio set could be useful in the future for any kind of public debate where arguments versus pseudoskepticism will be needed. In this release I've made two (2) versions of audios (one version for Broadband users and another for Dial up users): Audios Download Link (high quality version for broadband users): http://tinyurl.com/7xtbqr8 (25 mb) Audios Download link (version for dial up users): http://tinyurl.com/7a39qnu (4 mb) Excellent companion piece by Don Ecker with audio too: http://tinyurl.com/82nok8n Audio guide is at the end of this post. Description of the audio set: Just as you started to think that there couldn't be anything new within history of pseudoskepticism (I equally respect skepticism as any other objective research, but pseudoskepticsm is a completely separate beast), uninvited demons of the past arrived again! On Sunday, January 29, 2012, Travis Walton was a guest on "Coast to Coast AM" and the host was George Knapp. I was reading some comments over the Internet, but I still couldn't find that anyone has mentioned the most important part of the show from my perspective. The most exclusive part of the interview was a rare appearance of STEVE PIERCE and John Goulette, Travis' companions who witnessed the UFO incident in 1975. In the past, Travis was primariy interviewed together with Mike Rogers, so it was refreshing to hear statements from the OTHER participants. During the 4-hour interview, Pierce produced a bombshell. He stated that Philip Klass offered him a $10,000 BRIBE to say that the event was a hoax (check audio number 4 from the download link on the top of this post). Recap of the show is available here: http://tinyurl.com/7karbhg Has this info about the bribe EVER been in the public domain thus far?! There is NO need for a special introduction of infamous Phil Klass, one of the founders of CSICOP. CSICOP is still active with a new name - CFI - which is its legal successor. I still remember "Strange Days Indeed" - episode of the radio show back in September 2005, when Richard Dolan talked about the discovery of the Phil Klass letter (check audio number 3 from the download link at the top of this post). More on it here: http://tinyurl.com/3w4bp7y At the time, I was shocked with the specific style of the letter, although I've been aware about methods that Klass used. Just to mention other problems that he caused to Dr. James McDonald and Professor Robert Jacobs. More on it here: http://tinyurl.com/67ppqpp Reference about an interesting connection between Phil Klass and Admiral Bobby Inman is available here: http://tinyurl.com/7propxw Because of Klass' letters, professor Robert Jacobs even got fired from the University of Maine (check audio clip number 2 from the download link at the top of this post). Anyway, the implication about Klass' bribe of $10,000 is obvious. This latest revelation should be noted as an additional argument versus the integrity of institutional continuity of CFI. I hope that you will find it useful. If a similar affair was discovered about some first-class UFO researcher, the field would be dragged through the mud for years.
