Very Strange Days - Indeed!

Subject: Very Strange Days - Indeed!


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...

*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.

Subject: BRIBE Bombshell! 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?!

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):

Excellent companion piece by Don Ecker with audio too:

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:

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:

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.
