One of our local TV stations is (even as I type) doing a rebroadcast of the ‘Alien Autopsy - Fact or Fiction?’ thing. In prime time, during the season opener month. Since there have been a number of UFO (or was that ULV, can’t find the appropriate thread now?) threads here, I’d thought I’d post a few thoughts.
I watched the first bit waiting for some hint of the ‘Fiction’ half and it didn’t seem to be forthcoming; but - as far as I know, the film has even been discredited by most serious UFO researchers. Words escape me, let’s just say that this … saddens me. Fighting ignorance since 1973, and the media still exposes the masses to this kind of obvious money grubbing hokum. You have to wonder what the point is (the point of the fight, not the point of the film - when I first saw the thing, I did some poking around and it was pretty obvious that the point of the film was to get a bunch of network air time).
I’m undecided as to which forum to post this in. Could be a great debate, unless I ask Contestant #3 for an opinion, in which case it should go in the BBQ pit (and unless someone’s come up with a dramatic new piece of evidence, the debate was over years ago anyway). Could be a MPSIMS I guess, doesn’t seem to be a general question; what to do, what to do?
I guess I’ll toss in the pit as a personal challenge to C#3 - come up with some compelling heresay or maybe >one< web page that will make me believe that the film is real …
Sigh, try to make it reasonably compelling, please? Thks,
