    In all the 13 years I've been a member in that other place, I've done a grand total of 9 posts, (6 posts in late 2004 and 3 posts in early 2005)... lol...

    The UFO and Alien interest has certainly waned quite a bit over the last whatever years. I live smack in the middle of a so called Alien, UFO, Paranormal and Crypto hot bed area where there was once a large thriving UFO society which has almost all but gone now, and the Yowie (Bigfoot Sasquatch) group seems to have also disappeared.

    There's an obvious steep decline in all such groups around Australia, including Paranormal groups. However, interest in local Haunted Houses and Haunted Sites seems to be on the increase, but I think it's more because it draws in extra tourists who are willing to part with their tourist dollar...

    Decades ago when I first really got stuck into the topic information seemed generally, much more level headed that it was about 10 years ago and nowdays it's quite scarce, other than what does seem to be around seems to have more of a subtle type of spiritual, religious undertone to it...

    Maybe people are so busy with their faces plastered into their phones checking out Facebook that they no longer look at the skies nor observe much of what is going on around them? Some people could probably bump head bang right into a ghost and as a apology to the ghost say something trite like:

    'Opps, sorry mate, you look as white as a ghost'...and still be none the wiser they just spoke to a ghost because they haven't looked up from their phone... z2

    Not sure what to think anymore... I hardly think a photo or a video would stand up for credible evidence nowadays. I look at some of the top range photo and video editing programmes may family have and which they also use in my place and they are so brilliant, that you would be really hard pushed to tell a fake edited video or a fake edited photo from a genuine one...

    Right now the only thing that would give incontrovertible evidence would be first contact if they landed in Trafalgar Square or Central Park. As it stands now there isn't any case that is considered as solid evidence of ET contact. Most of the famous cases are now based more on myth than anything else. Because the internet has made each account far more sensationalized which hides the what might actually be real inside a mountain of rubbish.

    I'll stick around...but I have been posting at FT for many years off and on....and will continue there. It's a great forum and imho perhaps the best online overall.
    But it was odd that I was 'locked out' of the forum here for about half a day....though the main man seems
    to be ignoring that issue and never responded to me.

    I'm fine....but it was an odd happening....a friend who knows computers was at my office when it happened and they didn't think it was a glitch but an intentional block. But I could still log on but had no access to post or read members profiles...it was strange. I mentioned it to castle-yankee who suggested I contact nivek.....since he runs the place.I sent nivek a pm...no response...still. ....but it seems all is well now..so maybe it was just a 'glitch'. ;)

    I was severely myopic. Minus 6 ? Had Lasek done 2005 on my left eye. Perfect vision ever since.. Thoo the procedure was
    scary lol, Soo never did the other one.. Using a lence for my right eye. It works no probs.. I sometimes go with out my lence for upto a whole day just to let the eye ( cornea ) rest and get some more oxygene. Mono vision :D

    I understand.....LASIK can be scary to some.....but you should have gone ahead and done the other eye.
    The technique is even better these days. I'm glad you had a positive outcome. Are you using a standard soft lens....like an Acuvue Oasys..?

    Rendleshem Forest is another one that is becoming more a religious myth because the accounts keep changing and getting more sensational with each telling I see.

    An interesting case,......imho something was seen there. Several military personnel saw strange lights (and I believe there was an anomalous radar reading on one of the nights involved) ,and I think it's very unlikely they were simply seeing a distant lighthouse beacon through the woods or whatever was the original 'answer'.
    Whether or not it was an 'alien craft' is the big question here.
    I have thought that this might have been an exercise in psychological ops to see how base personnel would react if they thought an alien craft was in the area.

    I highly doubt there was an ETV there those nights. If it was a psyop then penniston and burroughs have failed to the point where they don't even know what they saw. Halt seems to have faired better as his story hasn't changed as much.....but he doesn't believe what he was saying in the last couple shows I saw him in.

    It's obvious something happened and I don't believe it was simply a distant light they were seeing from some prosaic event.
    So we are left with a true mystery unless someone comes up with a better answer.

    Yes it is a mystery.....but this is one of those cases that has been mythologized to the point where one can't figure where the myth ends and any truth begins.

    I'd really like to see Halts report from that night.....and see a transcript of his voice recording.
