I overdid it with my back and have had to rest it over the weekend (boring and frustrating but there it is). I watched Truth Hunter with Linda Moulton Howe. I've seen Ancient Aliens and Ancient Civilizations (sic) and am happy to accept that we had visitors from another place a long time ago, hence the myths and legends that are told in all the religions. The flood myth for instance is told in religions and peoples across the world (not just Noah and the Christians). Certainly makes more sense than a white-haired old geezer anyway.
I believe we are visited today by beings from other places. I kind of thought they would be benevolent... my Polyanna outlook at work again.
The programme went through the details of the event at Rendlesham Forest in detail. Ms Moulton Howe presents her findings in a very authoritative manner and adduces what certainly looks like compelling evidence.
Apparently there are five different kinds of ETs, one of which are friendly and helpful towards us, one of which is an insect-like species who are aggressive and dislike us. Apparently the friendly ETs are known to the military, have helped with technology and are on our side - however, they are outnumbered by the unfriendly ETs.
The season concluded (and I have heard this elsewhere) that we humans are in effect a social experiment being undertaken by beings from somewhere else, who are much more advanced in terms of technology and science (which is why I think (hope!) they are benevolent). And apparently the experiment is continuing... (not sure I feel so happy about this).
It is posited that the dinosaurs (also an experiment) were wiped out by a large asteroid hitting the earth - the dust would block out sunlight, it would be very cold, nothing would grow. And then it goes on to say that the ETs could have stopped the asteroid (blown it up in space presumably) - but didn't. So I'm wondering if all this is true and bearing in mind what a mega fuck up we are making of everything really, if another asteroid comes, will the ETs let that one land and wipe us out?
As I say, all presented in a very believable format, with each segment supported by documents, eye-witnesses, whistle-blowers, miltary staff and so on. It has certainly given me pause.
