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.
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!
