I have avoided talking about Hangar One sure that most people realized that it was more fiction than fact. I sometimes thought the lone fact was that there is an organization known as MUFON and everything else was pretty much invented for television ratings. That became more of a reality for me when I saw the latest episode, which is to say, the last one I saw but with the way they broadcast this stuff, I’m not sure what the last episode might have been.
Anyway, I was just doing a video lap which is pushing the remote channel button looking for something interesting when I heard about a “star soldier.” This was a guy who claimed, if I have this right, to have been serving with an alien race as some sort of soldier or mercenary. Okay, this tale is not really out there yet, or at least, not that far out until we learn the entire story. Seems that the fellow claimed that he was abducted as a seventeen-year-old high school student (I assume he was still in high school) and given training as a soldier before his eventual deployment to… Mars.
There he served for twenty years doing something that I failed to pick up on. I was more surprised by his claims of conscription into a military force that seemed to have no legal authority to draft him. I mean he couldn’t even run to Canada or somewhere else to avoid this service if he felt it against his personal code. He had no legal remedies to this forced servitude. He had no choice and he didn’t explain how he was compensated for his service.
Okay, this still isn’t as far out as it would get. He sat there, talking about this service, and I’m wondering what his parents did when he disappeared. I’m wondering if they called the police, if they put his pictures up around town asking for information or if they offered a reward for his safe return. I wondered how they felt when their child disappeared in the middle of the night with absolutely no clue about his fate.
I was also wondering what sort of skills he might have had to make him a target for alien conscription. Did he have some psychic ability? Some other special talent that is not obvious to us? Maybe he had a physical constitution that would allow him to survive in the thin atmosphere of Mars if they haven’t terraformed it to allow human life or if he was underground in some kind of artificial structure.
But he explained all that away. After twenty years of service, he was returned to his bed and in his seventeen-year-old body some fifteen minutes after he had vanished. His parents never knew he had been gone and I would imagine if it had been a school night, he returned to the classroom the next day believing he’d had a very vivid dream. After all, he wasn’t any older, had no physical scars that weren’t there before his service, no evidence that he had lived for twenty years off Earth and absolutely no evidence that anything he said was true. Or for those who care, anything he said was true in our shared reality.
As he spun this tale, I heard no laughing in the background. I heard no evidence that the producers of the program or that the alleged investigators of this tale thought of it as bogus. Here was this guy sitting there claiming that he had served on Mars for twenty years (or in alien service for twenty years) and had absolutely nothing to prove it. Apparently they thought it not that… unreal?
Oh, I know what will be said. The aliens can bend and distort time so that they are able to do this. Of course no one can prove any of this, but what the hell, it just proves how powerful the aliens are and what their technology can do. After all, why would someone lie about this? Why, indeed.
I don’t know why they would provide this guy any air time given the nature of his tale. If the producers wish to maintain any credibility they would have acknowledged the improbability of the tale, or better yet, not aired it at all. This is one of the better examples why rational people just don’t take ufology seriously. It seems there are those who actually believe this crap.
