Seeking the Truth

09 Dec

Too many people, some very clever and knowledgeable in their own fields, have formed opinions based not upon the evidence but because they have closed their minds to any other opinion than their own.

This is particularly true in the areas of the so-called paranormal, alternative scientific theories, conspiracy theories, etc.

Often there are vested interests at stake so, for example, any alternative scientific theories which would threaten all current scientific research grants and make all scientific textbooks obsolete if proved true are ridiculed and refused publication in scientific journals. Organized religion and atheistic science both have a common vested interest in dismissing Spiritualism/Survivalism as ‘of the devil’ or just superstitious nonsense, fraud and wishful thinking. Governments have a vested interest in hiding the truth about UFOs able to invade their airspace, reportedly neutralize ICBMs and which they feel might cause panic among the population. They obviously also have a vested interest in hiding the truth about any conspiracy theories which have a basis in fact, most likely of which include the deaths of JFK and Diana, Princess of Wales.

Other things are rejected because people feel it would make them look stupid or gullible to believe in them. Indeed it is gullible to believe in anything which is not backed up by evidence, but so many things in the above areas are rejected by people who refuse to even examine or consider the evidence.

The scientific and empirical method requires all subjects to be approached with an open mind, and decisions made on the evidence alone.

The line is crossed into gullibility when things are accepted without being backed up by evidence. Such things have to be kept in mind as mere possibilities until they are either backed up or not backed up by evidence.

Taking just one example, UFOs and visits to the Earth by alien civilizations. There is so much overwhelming evidence of this no person who has examined this evidence can be in any doubt whatsoever that it is a fact. It has been confirmed by Dr Ed Mitchell, an ex-NASA scientist and an astronaut who walked on the Moon, by the first Director of the CIA Admiral Hillenkoeter and documented in books by the late USAF Major Donald E. Keyhoe. All these and more have gone on public record about the reality of UFOs and their extraterrestial origin, Keyhoe quoting numerous USAF personnel and documents in his books. Hillenkoeter made a statement to the U.S. press in 1956 about the extraterrestial origin of UFOs, and Dr Mitchell has said as much on radio programs and YouTube. The latest influential person to endorse the idea of aliens visiting the Earth is the Russian Premier and former President, Dimitry Medvedev, who was privy to top secret documents and files. It really is not credible to say such a person was just ‘joking’, along with all the others mentioned above, quite apart from the documentary and radar evidence backing alien visitation up.

Then there are those who go further and say aliens are among us on Earth disguised as Earth-born humans. There is, as far as I am aware, no real evidence for this. I therefore keep it in the back of my mind as a mere theory or possibility until such evidence is uncovered or till it is proved otherwise.

Even more outlandish theories suggest aliens are among us who take on a humanoid appearance at times, but metamorphize into lizard-like creatures in secret. This theory I reject as either deliberate misinformation to ridicule UFOlogy and UFOlogists, or pure science fiction. There is no evidence for this whatsoever, and frankly it is just ridiculous. A powerful alien civilization which wished to take over the planet would have no need for such subterfuge, so the whole idea is ruled out from the start quite apart from being insulting when individuals are named as aliens in this context.* See my comment below, evidence has come to light about this.

Then there is the area of the afterlife. People like Stephen Hawking, Dr Susan Blackmore and Richard Dawkins may be very knowledgeable in their own fields, but if they have not studied the relevant evidence with open minds, and ALL the evidence, not just that which supports their own theories, then they have no right to pontificate on the subject. If they do, their opinions can justly be ignored as ill-informed or plainly wrong.

There is overwhelming evidence for the afterlife and survival, and many scientists and medical people past and present have studied this evidence and confirmed either the likelihood of survival, or actually said it has been proved beyond doubt.

When we look at various conspiracy theories, we must use the same scientific and empirical method to decide whether they are true, just possibilities or very unlikely fantasies. There is very strong evidence backing up certain conspiracy theories, less evidence backing up others, and frankly no evidence at all to back up a lot more.

In a recent Facebook comment on my Timeline I was urged to support majority opinions such as those following the world’s major religions. Why should I when the majority are so often proved quite wrong? While all religions may have elements of the truth, they quite clearly all contain a lot of total fiction and deliberate manipulation of the population. Myths were taken from one religion and then adopted by another in order to win converts to the new religion. Thus we come to the myth than Jesus, for instance, was born on December 25th to a virgin, a story taken from the myth about the birth of a pagan god. Maybe this myth originated from pure fantasy, or maybe some alien intervention was responsible using artificial insemination. However there is no real evidence for the virgin birth on 25th December story at all, and unless some crops up thousands of years later there is unlikely to be, yet millions have believed it.

Many still believe God created the World and Universe in just seven days despite all the evidence to the contrary, or that The Bible and other religious texts were inspired by God when large parts are clearly political manipulation by very evil humans indeed. The Old Testament of the Bible is full of atrocities supposedly encouraged by God, yet many still regard the Bible and other ancient religious texts as holy books.

Parts of them may well have been inspired by great spiritual teachers, such as Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, but other parts which encourage slavery, murder, genocide, rape, etc. should be expurgated from these ancient texts as they clearly were put in them thousands of years ago for political purposes.

We are now supposed to be in the scientific age, yet even the theory of Evolution and Natural Selection has been misrepresented as endorsing atheism. In fact it does nothing of the sort, and Charles Darwin had a contemporary in Alfred Russel Wallace whose theory of Evolution and Natural Selection inspired Darwin. Wallace is all but forgotten, and possibly this is because he was a believer in Spiritualism, so did not believe Evolution or Natural Selection supported the theory that everything happened by pure accident or that there was no afterlife.

On the other hand, there are rationalists, atheists and agnostics who have studied the evidence for survival, and who have come to the conclusion it is a scientific fact which does not require religion or the concept of God to justify it. Certain alternative scientific theories, such as those of Ronald Pearson, support the afterlife and the so-called paranormal without invoking supernatural causes. Indeed Quantum Physics, which seem to contradict some of Einstein’s theories, suggest that all material universes are virtual realities created by a non-material Consciousness.

So while all opinions based on studying the evidence are welcome, those based on pure prejudice, closed minds or protecting vested interests are invalid and can be rejected out-of-hand.

Basically, if people have studied the evidence, all the evidence, with an open mind, then their opinions are valid. If they have not done so they should be ignored as ignorant of the facts in that particualr field, however knowledgeable they may be in other fields where they have studied the evidence impartially.

    ” I congratulate you Tony on a concise precis which brings to bear so many points worthy of validation. Even the fact I am writing this response will be ridiculed by some, I await the comments in response to it but fueled by ignorance enhanced by as you infer the Media or other parties, bodies who are intent on encouraging people, influencing them to remain ignorant having powerful hidden agendas themselves doing so naturally; which you have drawn attention to.
    Diana Speaks, how can this be possible,what kind of idiot convinces himself he channels me? Who is this person? The same person who has done so to people who knew me and who recognise me channeled through him that’s who and what more powerful a proof is there? Would friends of mine not dismiss him out of hand did they not know it? Of course they would and yet he is judged by people who did not know me, many of whom never even met me who feel they have the right to do so and act accordingly but in personal ignorance.
    The fact I have a voice is frightening to some who would prefer to imagine I was silenced in Paris in 1997 but then clearly fail to remember I said “She won’t go quietly” speaking about myself in the third person; how prophetic was that? There was global ignorance about H.I.V. and A.I.D.S. greatly dispelled when I shook the hand of someone with A.I.D.S. Up until then sufferers labelled Victims and indeed they were but not solely of the illnesses but of people’s ignorance about them which was encouraged by the Media, newpsapers and television so a powerful medium target. Landmines being a similar story as genocide was proven lucrative, to be of enormous financial benefit to both the U.K. Government and U.S. Senate so the last thing they wanted was me getting involved and much less exposing the corruption involved publicly as I intended doing and knowing as witnessed by them with my having given the scandalous Panorama Interview of 1995; not something they dared risk happening again calling me a “Loose Cannon”. Royals cannot be seen to be political but remember the divorce finalised, I was no longer officially royal and so took advantage of this fact involving myself in sensitive political issues albeit in an humanitarian capacity saying I was not a political animal!

    I have drawn attention on my site in I believe one of the After – Life Interviews with Rose Campbell the fact of the bible having been endlessly re – written and altered. Who is alive today to verify the authenticity of the scriptures, to validate them with cold, hard evidence to support them so a point worthy of drawing attention to Tony. It must likewise be remembered with any news story, any headline at all, the whole picture is never fully illustrated, it is always censored for one reason or another as the Media by example in the U.K. is instructed to follow certain guidelines and not to step over them. Consequently news items are more often than not somewhat diluted for public consumption, this is an ongoing practice but now as is continuously happening headlines reported are now being proven to be untrue and corrupt resulting in being exposed as false. This is an ongoing practice and one set to continue and something I personally applaud happening for all too obvious reasons and will do all I can do to assist in this process and now unable to be stopped in my endeavours to do so of course so having the upper hand in many respects in keeping with being someone in life who publicly illustrated in so many ways that things were not as they seemed, fairy tales a myth!”

    Sorry to disagree with you Toni about the aliens. Of course there are aliens – the extraordinary business of the crop circles proves that beyond reasonable doubt. But – to what dimension do they belong? I suspect they have been with us since time immemorial, seen or sensed under various guises (mostly the imagery already present in our own subconscious – vide “Quatermass and the Pit”). I just happen to believe beyond question in the existence of the Deva (or ‘angelic’) evolution, paralleling our own. I would also draw your attention to a fascinating book called “Dimensions” by Dr. Jacques Vallee, an astro-physicist, which supports this view and goes further.
    Sorry, but I can’t accept that anyone walked on the moon – I believe it WAS a hoax, filmed with great skill in the Nevada desert, and in response to the challenge presented by Russian technology. It simply could not have happened – they didn’t possess the know-how (practical, as opposed to theory) or the proper gear, and they made several mistakes which are exhaustively detailed by whistle blowers. A clever, skilful, painstaking hoax which has never, funnily enough, been repeated. By anyone. We had problems in those days sending mechanical probes without technical problems, let alone men – and let alone bringing ‘em back in one piece more than once! Still, until someone actually “squeals” it will always be a matter for debate.
    I believe the real “frontier” is the next dimension – and we don’t need space craft or technology to take it on board – unless you include Electronic Voice phenomena and other scientific aids to building the Bridge.

    *Are there aliens among us who look human but can metamorphize into something which doesn’t look human? I used to subscribe to ‘Flying Saucer Review’, but canceled my subscription when a new editor took over who seemed to slant every report with a demonic interpretation, based on Islamic mythology. This, to me, wasn’t an open-minded approach.

    I did read about the Travis Walton abuduction but can’t remember the details. However in a TV reconstruction, where the original abductee, witnesses, police officers, etc. are interviewed, it seems he was abducted and various medical experiments were carried out, first of all by three very alien looking humanoids. In the reconstruction three humans later forcibly conducted medical experiments on him on the UFO, but Travis said there was something different about their eyes.

    I have heard this before, that human-looking aliens have something different about their eyes. Eyes are said to be the windows of the soul, and certainly the eyes of a corpse show that there is no soul present.

    So, presuming the whole Travis Walton abduction story isn’t a hoax as the police still believe, then it is possible the three alien looking humanoids metamorphized into more human looking creatures to try to calm Travis down (he had lashed out and run away to another part of the UFO when he woke up and first saw the aliens.)

    Of course there could have been two types of aliens on board the UFO, but it seems more likely the three weird looking humanoids changed their appearance. It didn’t really calm Travis down much, and he was very traumatized afterwards, and still is nearly 40 years later.

    All witnesses passed a polygraph test, and the person who conducted it also tested Travis and told the police it is all true, he really does believe he was abducted by a UFO, and the witnesses really believe they saw one. They have all stuck to their stories for nearly 40 years.

    This is an unusual abduction case in that most involve a time-lapse and memory-loss. In the Betty and Barney Hill case, for instance, one of the first of this kind. Only thru hypnosis could the actual abduction details of the couple be recalled.

    This seems to suggest that even the aliens doing these abductions are not particularly hostile. Perhaps not as advanced as other aliens, and unemotional, but they usually insure the abductee is not traumatized by inducing memory loss.

    Even with Travis Walton, where there was no memory loss, he was returned safely and was physically unharmed.

    There would be a motive for the strange looking humanoids to change their appearance to a more human looking one to calm Travis down in the UFO abduction.

    What would be the motive for a hostile take-over of the Earth? None that I can see, as a powerful alien civilization could take over without such subterfuge and would surely have done so by now.

    One theory goes that they have already taken over but we don’t know it because they’ve metamorphized into human-like individuals. This is where the fantasy starts, and it gets insulting and quite ridiculous.

    Everyone from Queen Elizabeth II to practically every politician and, for some strange reason, Country Music artist has been accused of being a reptilian alien. Stories are added about them drinking the blood of children, which are even more outlandish.

    To inject some common-sense into all this, it seems there could be aliens among us who take on a human-like appearance so as not to cause fear and to hide their presence. They have no desire to take over the world or we’d know it by now, and the world wouldn’t be in such a mess surely.

    We’d either have a near utopian society, or some kind of alien dictatorship, but at any rate not a lot of squabbling nations.

    So if aliens are among us, as the Russian premier suggested, they are here for an unknown purpose, possibly to monitor and observe us, hopefully to help us, but it is not helpful to accuse individuals of being aliens. That way leads to paranoia.

    One thing is certain. The governments of the world, certainly the U.S. government and probably many others, know a lot more about the alien visitations and possible presence on this planet than they are admitting.

    As to taking over the world for good or bad if this was their intention it would have happened by now and we’d know about it. I think it far more likely we are a primitive planet with a primitive warring civilization and it is like a kind of museum or living school which various aliens are keen to monitor and study.

    They may advise and help to nudge us along the path to a better world, but they seem to have no desire to take over and create either utopia or a ruthless monolithic world dictatorship as they could have done either centuries ago.

    Well of course at one time the Church-State unholy alliance used the expression “Heretic” in order to stigmatise and eliminate opposition. Creating paranoia is nothing new – and will always work until the hoi polloi develops sufficient intelligence and perception to see through government lies and distortions. Don’t hold your breath!

    Andrew Russell - Davis Says:

    As it is now available to be seen if people search hard enough, the banned film “Unlawful Killing” is indeed so telling and factually based as an in depth documentary would be expected to be of course. So too is which equally substantiates fact as opposed to fiction so for this reason is one worth visiting and exploring.Always known for doing my homework in meticulous detail, no stone is left unturned deliberately for those interested in truth!”
    Thank you for listening to me,
