I reached out to Nick Redfern. I wanted to talk about his new book, Rendlesham Forest UFO Conspiracy. You can listen to it here:
What caught my attention was the information that suggested that what had been seen, or what had happened, in the forest in December 1980, was not something
but had to do with scientific or military experimentation that had gone on in
the area for years. When I talked with John Burroughs several months ago, he
had said much the same thing and I believed that Nick and John might have
worked together to some extent on the book. Nick said that he had not interviewed
John, and given the confluence of their theories, I find this quite
interesting. You can listen to my interview with John Burroughs here:
Although we didn’t go into depth about it, Nick mentioned an attempt by Nazi Germany to land soldiers in England in the war. According to Nick, that small landing force had been wiped out, and if I understood it properly, he was suggesting that some sort of experimental weapon or method had been used.
I also asked him about push back from the UFO community because of this book, and his earlier Body Snatchers in the Desert which supplied an alternative to aliens in Roswell. I had found myself attacked for following the evidence and publishing, with Russ Estes and Bill Cone, a book suggesting a more terrestrial explanation for the majority of the abduction reports. Nick suggested that many didn’t want to know the solution to a mystery. They preferred the mystery, which, of course, I have observed in the past as well.
This sort of leads to next week’s show. I’m going to talk with Robert Scheaffer about the nature of evidence and how those on both sides of the UFO coin seem to reject that evidence that doesn’t fit into their personal belief structures. I suppose we could say the same thing applies throughout our world whether it has to do with politics, history and interpersonal relations.
If you have questions, let me know and I’ll try to get them asked. And remember, if you have read any of my latest books, please think about writing a review for Amazon. This helps spread the word, getting our (or in some cases, my) point of view out. People do need to know about what happened in Roswell and Socorro and how those at Project Blue Book manipulated the data.
