I don’t have the time to pick this piece apart and, frankly, it’s not worth it. This sounds like a WHOLE LOTTA paranoia to feed the UFO crowd and I’m not buying it. People die all the time. It does not mean the government is after you or aliens, if that’s what you want to believe.
A crop circle researcher found floating off the coast of Portsmouth and the rapid decline of a UFO expert who believed he had found an alien skull, are the latest in what some UFO researchers claim is a ‘pattern’ of suspicious deaths of researchers into extraterrestrial sightings, stretching back to as early as 1947.
A plane supposedly shot down by the U.S. military is believed to have been carrying fragments of a flying saucer, while the death of first U.S. Secretary of Defense, James Forrestal, is believed to be UFO related. Some believe that victims number in their dozens.
The pattern of suspicious deaths hit the headlines again this year as activist Steve Bassett spoke on the subject on national radio show C2C in America. A new book, Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind by Nick Redfern, is due out this summer.
I’ll admit I’m biased but I don’t consider a book and talk on a mystery mongering radio show to be good evidence for calling these deaths a pattern or even mysterious. Crop circles? COME ON!!! People DO die strange deaths and people who immerse themselves in weird ideas tend to have more weird ideas and possibly mental problems that lead to trouble. You’d have to have considerable solid evidence to be more than speculation regarding those with UFO inside info as being specially targeted to be snuffed out.
At least some do admit you can’t prove these things and the idea is NOT new. But really? Been going on systematically since 1947? That’s a giant reach and I doubt they will make anything close to a solid case for this.
If I do know one thing, I know that many UFO proponents are very paranoid and will buy into this stuff. That is NOT a positive thing. They already are misguided by mythical lore and pop culture propaganda in place of verifiable facts. Some seem to live in a fantasy world. Cherry picking to make things sound worse will not solve anything.
People give the government an awful lot of credit while out the other side of their mouth saying the government is inept. Which is it? It’s just more to add to the UFO myth machine.
The Romaneks are planning to go the conspiracy route to fight charges against them too.
If you have thoughts on this, let us know.
