week’s guest on A Different Perspective was Curt Collins, he of www.blueblurrylines.com and www.thesaucersthattimeforgot.com. I had invited him on to talk
about the series he writes about the more obscure but no less interesting
stories about flying saucers. You can listen to the show here:
began by talking about some of the things he had found in his searches. He
mentioned my chasing footnotes as an example of looking for the primary sources
of information. This might include speaking to the main witnesses when they
found, or the original articles that appeared in newspapers or magazines. We both have found times when the information being circulated today doesn’t resemble accurately the information as it was originally presented. I thought specifically of a metal vessel blow out of solid rock in Massachusetts in the 19th century. For those interested in this analysis, see:
mentioned a story that seemed to reflect on the abduction phenomenon as written
today, called The Outer Limit (and as he said, not to be confused with
the old TV show, The Outer Limits). This program had to do with atomic
testing causing damage to the Earth, something that is in the news today.
also talked, briefly about Carroll Wayne Watts, who, in 1967, claimed that he
had an encounter that was sort of a cross between a contact and an abduction.
It was an admitted hoax. Watts ended up divorces and in prison. He blamed it on
something that had happened to him that he didn’t understand. You can read the
whole tale here:
did ask about hoaxes, since he had mentioned them. He drew a distinction
between actual hoaxes and stories in which the witnesses might have been fooled
by some natural phenomenon or some terrestrially based technology seen under
unusual circumstances. This led to a brief discussion of MJ-12 and the alien
autopsy both of which were hoaxes designed with specific intents.
did touch on the Roswell Slides and how that fiasco seems to have slipped from
the public mind. Several years ago it was a hot topic but it crashed within,
literally hours, after the Mexico City presentation when the museum setting was
recognized and the card on the display was read.
did talk about Roswell and Aztec. The Aztec crash seems to be a hoax (though I
know Scott Ramsey would disagree). You can read more about the Aztec Crash
these cases and reports cloud the issue of UFOs as extraterrestrial craft. With
Roswell, everyone agrees that something fell, it’s just a question of what it
was. I’m of the opinion that all terrestrial explanations have been eliminated
and did mention the Air Force helped with that. They ruled out everything but
the Project Mogul arrays.
the show we did talk about the Ramey Memo and how AI might be the only way
we’re going to learn anything more. We also touched on Jesse Marcel’s diary and
the research done with that.
the end, we ran out of time. Those looking for more information can visit
Curt’s websites mention at the top of the article. They make for some very
week, if all works out and the creek don’t rise, I’ll be talking with Robert
Sheaffer about his take on UFOs and from what he said, my take on UFO’s and the
Deep State. We’ll probably delve into the current interest in UFOs by Congress
and by extension, the military.
