Ohhh, didn't see that ! I was on the other page. I have heard him speak many times and I THINK HE'S FULL OF IT !!!!
What I mean about a writer claiming to be abducted .....is that they are trying to sell books and have movies made out of those books.........and he succeeded . :P I think there might be aliens, but I DON'T THINK HE MET ANY OF THEM !!!! :lol:

Well, except that Whitley was doing well as a writer before then. The Hunger had already been made into a movie and Wolfen too, I think. If anything, the whole alien abduction thing has hurt his career as a writer.

Just to add a bit more to that because I have never understood why people think he needed to make up a story to sell books when he was already doing really well at that -- his early regression tapes used to be available at unknown country, not sure if they still are. I could understand someone making up a story, but back then who knew to go to a therapist and get them to tape regression sessions? Why spend a few years building up this story like that when you are already doing well? No, I still think that whether everything Whitley thinks happened really happened or not, he really believes that it did.

Mystery - my concern with that angle is that if someone happens to be interested in UFOs and/or Abduction and is then actually abducted, their story would almost immediately be discredited and labelled BS because people would say "Oh she's always been into that stuff, she probably used all the info she has read, and concocted the story for fame and notoriety"

Consider that Whitley may have written the kinds of novels he did from having a life of high-strangeness as a sort of 'guide'. It's one of those situations that's not always easy to sweep under the rug as BS. Unless you live in Colorado.

I'm kidding.

Not really.

No, I totally am.

Really, I'm lying

Seriously though.

Always this angle of Ufologists being in it for money bugs me. I know lots of Ufologists and unless you are George Noory (who is really a radio host - not a ufologist) there is no money. Oh sure, some make enough money to get by, but they aren't getting rich. Most have to have a REAL job or have money from some other source even if they have several books in print.

I agree: Either tweed sport coats with elbow patches are back in style, or a lot of the big UFO researchers are dead poor.

Well I would certainly hope Whitley wasn't in it, as he would have been a very young boy if he was even born then ;)

I'm fairly well versed in Roswell and it's key players. Its hard not to be since every talks about it all the damn time, 60 years later. :P

Here is an example of my Google Alerts results on any given day:
Roswell Roswell Roswell
Roswell Roswell Socorro
Jeff Peckman Roswell
Roswell Roswell Roswell
Sara Palin is a Moron
Roswell Roswell Roswell

:|

I kid, of course (sort of!). But you may like me better if I don't add my review of the film, lol :)
