Not Of This Earth
By William Pullin, UFO Historian
Greetings! Accurate Information. The passing down of information, whether done verbally or in written form, from generation to generation can be quite an unreliable source of data. When “chasing footnotes” in UFO books and journals I often find that the original story is somewhat different from what is being conveyed today, meaning that the specific details and information has been transcribed inaccurately. This results in the belief in misinformation, or at the very least, stories and cases which have not been passed down to the present day with a high level of accuracy. When it comes to stories that are substantially older, many decades or centuries past, the situation is even worse. Attempting to make the case for the validity of a story that is centuries old is extremely difficult, if not impossible. During the course of last evening’s edition of “An Audio Commentary” I had a listener who was accepting of such ancient information, made several comments advocating said information, and was not accepting of my cautious and measured approach. As per usual in these kinds of interactions, the listener’s comments became less and less objective and more and more personal in nature. In the end, it made for quite the interesting discussion. Thanks for your time and interest.
