    The whole thing looks pretty fishy to me. Einstein did not complete a unified field theory that actually worked. Theories are actually a big deal, and tons of them come and go before there is a successful one. It not only needs to explain everything we already know, but predict nothing in contradiction with what we know, and predict new results that make it worth pursuing. That's very tough to accomplish.

    From the rest of the quotes, it looks like a lot of dubious claims presented with no real evidence.

    The Threat looks like a book I'd like to read. It's under $12 on Amazon. :)

    One of my favorite books on UFOs is Parallels by Richard L. Thompson. Originally titled, Alien Identities, Jim Marrs cited it in his UFO book.
    [​IMG]

    "For decades, researchers have exhaustively documented modern UFO phenomena, but questions remain about the origins of these strange objects and the intentions of the beings associated with them. In Parallels, Richard L. Thompson shows that answers may lie in the records of ancient civilizations claiming thousands of years of contact with races appearing to have an unearthly origin. Startling parallels between modern UFO accounts and events described in the ancient Sanskrit writings of India offer fresh insight into the nature of exotic incidents reported throughout human history.

    "PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This book was originally published as Alien Identities: Ancient Insights into Modern UFO Phenomena. The new title, Parallels, was the author’s original choice."

    Top secret alien abduction files : what the government doesn’t want
    you to know, Nick Redfern, 2018

    It draws from FOI, contactee and abductee information and suggests several phases of alien activity.
    The early years, from the 50s, where contactees reported benevolent, non abduction type interactions. Intrigued governments began discreetly opening files.
    A second and more sinister phase from the sixties with abductions and experimentation. The reports included
    Governments became more proactive with monitoring and rapid response, black helicopter type reactions and occasionally their own abductions.
    Disinformation was used to limit widespread credence being given.
