Greer’s latest UFOlogy tall tale, more wild and crazy stuff

I don’t normally link to Examiner pieces but I know Jack and he has done some good work looking into the behind-the-scenes stuff on serial extraordinary claimant Steven Greer. So to give you an amusing insight to how seriously people take themselves, UFOlogist Steven Greer is claiming more fantastical stuff.

One of our big stories last year was Greer’s claim about the Atacama alien. See: Hard to take these claims Siriusly and Revelation that the ’6-Inch Alien’ is human. Siriusly. (UPDATE: Aborted fetus?).

Now he is claiming additional extraordinary goings-on.

Ufologist Greer announces possible leak of sensitive docs; critics skeptical – Orlando Paranormal |

Dr. Steven Greer announced yesterday he received photos of alleged classified government documents related to Project Aquarius, a purported operation involving the retrieval of crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft and occupants. Greer stated the photos were received May 21. He tweeted yesterday they were “received in mail”.

Greer reported the photos were sent by a person with contacts in what he described as covert aerospace and military projects related to UFOs. The person is a credible and reliable source, Greer added.

The documents are said to relate to the MJ-12 documents, which have been exposed as fake. According to Jack, he’s not received all that well even in the UFO community because he seems to be big talk, with no sound evidence. Judging from his history of ridiculous space claims, it’s no wonder. Should we buy that these so-called photos are real and that Greer is telling the truth? I’ll play the odds and say…hmmm…. BIG FAT NO!

But here is a zinger regarding Greer’s own “support”:

Critics will remain skeptical, however, suspecting Greer’s latest move to be a ploy to create controversy and keep himself and his organization, the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI), a hot topic among UFO enthusiasts.

According to the CSETI 2012 IRS Form 990EZ, the organization surrendered its tax-exempt nonprofit status and declared the company a for-profit corporation effective Jan. 1, 2013. Some $177,000 in consultation fees were reported paid to the Greer-owned Crossing Point Inc. during the 2012 accounting period. A total of $180,360 was reported paid to Crossing Point in 2011, and over $214,000 was paid to the company by CSETI in 2010. Expenses paid to Crossing Point were nearly 70 percent of the $833,083 total CSETI revenue reported during the three-year period, according to 990 forms filed to the IRS.

We’re in the wrong business! WHO KNEW there were six-figures in exopolitical consulting!

    I unsubscribed from his site loooooong ago & still get the insane news updates, & weird medical treatment adverts, convention info, etc, etc, One of the more plausible from first impression until he opens his mouth & starts ranting, with usually contradictory stories that have long ago been disproved by other researchers & investigative journalists. I’d say he has more disinformation than information.

    Greer scares me and keeps getting weirder.

    As additions to late 20th century ufology myth goes, that’s appallingly mediocre.

    All the really good stuff was done in the 1950s. After that it was all, “any day now the Government will reveal the TRUTH!” Boring.

    One must never forget the money motivation. If didn’t know before that this guy, and others like him tap into the large market for such woo, then could have made a good guess that the wonga was behind their need to keep trotting out bs. Those old questions, who benefits and how do they benefit are so often the keys to the door.

    Agreed. As soon as they turn their passion into big business, I begin to wonder whether they honestly believe the material they’re pitching or are cynically cashing in on their fan base. I have some empathy for the former. I have none for the latter.

    I quickly lose interest when things need to be revealed at some point in the future- and it’s all down to money anyways. If I had a hot line to ET, I’d be giving the crap out. It would mean the END of this stupid economy, and the beginning of something a lot better. When money is involved, you know it’s crap.

    The expansion into the interdimensional and Fortean in the 1960s, linking it with all the gods and demons and fairies of old (vs. the Contactees which basically just offered the same old American Christianity with new names or were continuations of late-stage Theosophy that explicitly went Space Age), was great storytelling stuff, even if it completely gave the game away. A few of the late additions aren’t bad (Dulce as scientific Hell is nifty, even if it is largely a retread of Shaver).

    Actually Dulce is a rip-off from Michael Crichton’s “The Andromeda Strain”, but then I’ve seen UFO believers use material from Role Playing Games as ‘evidence’ so I should not be too surprised.

    There are some definite elements involving some aspects of the base itself, though those in turn pull somewhat from the larger pop culture and from actual military installations (NORAD, Mt. Weather).

    I’m referring more to the backstory elements, which to give eddi due credit, a lot of which is cribbed from Shaver and similar sources from the 1940s and earlier: the digging into an alien lair from above, the “aliens” predating humanity, Nightmare Hall (which nicely dovetails with the 1980s obsession over missing people also seen in the Satanic Panic which is just another manifestation of the same larger rightish populist conspiracy worldview).

    Yep Greer is definitely on the “fringe of the fringe.” I stopped watching his rants quite a while ago. Just to comment on the piece as a whole ….is “fantastical” even a word? LOL!!!
