Most, if not all of you who are members here at The OutPost Forum, believe we are not alone. And undoubtedly, most of you will have had a conversation with people who want to know more, once they accept that, indeed, we are not alone.

WHAT ARE THE QUESTIONS YOU'VE BEEN ASKED?

I was thinking it would be a good idea to create a 'Disclosure FAQ,' with the most commonly asked questions.

For myself, I've had the conversation dozens of times. And the questions that are asked seem to be largely different depending on how religious people are.

In my experience, if people consider themselves religious, the first questions that are asked tend to focus on religious implications, with questions like:
- Does that mean God does not exist?
- Does that mean God did not create mankind?
- Where does that leave Jesus and the Bible?

In my experience, for people who do not consider themselves religious, the first questions that come to mind, often are:
- are they hostile? Do they pose a threat?
- why are they here?
- does the government know, and what are they doing about it?
- who are they, where do they come from, do they look like us?
- how long have they been here?

If you've had this conversation, what were the questions you've been asked?

Most of my conversations initial questions begin with "how did they get here/cover interstellar distances?"
Once we over come the transportation obstacle, the next line of questions is more in line with what you have listed.

Most people I talk with want to know E.T.'s goals.
Are they here to steal Earth's resources?
Are they terra-forming Earth to meet their own biological needs? (ie Global warming? Increased Methane/C02 levels? etc).
Are they future evolved/time traveler humans come to fix future problems that WE created?
Is it possible they have undue clandestine influence within government circles?
Is humanity simply an interesting species under study, much like a biologist may study lions in the wild?
Is E.T. (Grays) flesh and blood? Or some type of bio-robot?
Can our government's protect us from them? (ie abduction and/or out right invasion).

Some fantastic scenarios that boarder on SciFi.
But questions that seems to notch up in anxiety as the conversations progress.

Hello Garuda...

Whenever one talks about religion and the bible, someone somewhere is going to be offended. The post I am posting is not meant to offend anyone... it is only meant to fodder conversation about how UFO, aliens, and etc... MIGHT fit into the bible... I am no expert... but I have read the bible.... I do go to chuch just about every Sunday... I am not a religious fantatic... in fact... up to about a year ago... I was convinced the stories about Jesus were...well... not believed. however.... in my search for answers... I started to look at the anceint alien perspective of things.... not the whole nibiru angle... but my own perspective... I think the bible... more than anything else supports eveidence of an alien existance...

My view of the bible is... that it was written in a different time for a target audience far different than our current understanding of the world. While I am not completely unconvinced and I could never ever prove this theory, I often wonder if the early chapters of the bible came from a period of human development a prior to this current "stage”.

I also believe the first chapters of the old testament are a history book from this earlier stage that tended to explain things in a way that made sense to people at the time….not the way we might understand things today… just a simple example that has been in my head for a while that I need to get out… Please note I am not advocating this as true, for I have no evidence to make such a claim, it is just a different way to look at a story from the bible with a different twist…

We have all heard the basic story of Noah’s ark…. the story of how Noah gathered all the animals two-by two on two his boat… In many respects it is viewed as a children’s fable. Considering the complexities of such a task, we kind of mock this story because gathering the thousands upon thousands of animals, the boat would have to be huge… let alone gather animals from other parts of the world and etc…. but…. What if… instead of gathering all of the physical animals…. We had a “bank” that contained the DNA of every plant and animal. Impossible? Not hardly… check out Norway’s Doomsday Seed vault via Google… this is currently being done…. Now just imagine… Forget, for now the timing of everything… but just imagine…. For a second… maybe there was a thriving technologically advance human population or some sort or unknown alien assistance on earth let’s say…700,000 years ago…. And maybe they had gathered the DNA of every plant and animal and stored in in a doomsday vault…. Then maybe… something happened… and the world was basically wiped out…. Nuclear war \ explosion, etc… so for the most part… 99% of the world was wiped out… everything gone… but prior to the explosion… a few…elite… were able to escape via some sort of space craft with the doomsday vault…

Now imagine a few generations after all of this… how you might explain this story to the few survivors… now there is little to no technology… no more schools, nothing, man is basically at the stone age level… the concepts over time of space travel, DNA, technology all vanished and only memories handed down verbally for a few generations. As a result, without understanding DNA and etc… could the concept of creating a DNA doomsday vault not come across as gathering all the physical animals 2 by 2? Since they no longer had space exploration… might a space ship be explained as a boat? And… maybe the flood… was really nuclear fallout that fell from the sky…. I am not saying this is what happened…. But what I am saying is, don’t discount the stories…. it is all about perspective.

what if... it was at this point.... this is when the stories of Genesis were told…. And written…. many generations later….

Not sure if any of you are familiar with Adam's Calendar...the stories that surround this are interesting… the cliff notes version is this…. Adams Calendar is a settlement… that is proven to be at least 75,000 years old… and many believe it goes back much…much farther… 200,000 years… please pause for a sec… two hundred…. thousand years….

What is Adams Calendar? It is a settlement… but it is also a mine…. believed to be a gold mine…. Who… how…. Why… might people be mining for gold…. 200,000 years ago?? Well… this is a different conversation… but why the name…Adams Calendar? Anything to do with Adam and Eve?

Again… I cannot prove any of this… and there are similar theories… But what if… in the first books of Genesis… God was not…really God… but some sort of alien life… to us… or prehistoric man… would not any alien life appear as a God?

What if… these aliens… what if they were the ones who were here… mining the Gold… what if.. They were able to manipulate DNA from an ape… to make man… maybe the bible and Genesis got it right? Maybe man did not evolve from an ape the way we were taught…

I understand it is all speculative, un proven… and is full of what ifs… but… the overall point is this…

If one combines… knowledge of UFOs… aliens… abductions…. With the bible… It is downright fascinating… but… one has to accept that beyond everything we know… there is some sort of “energy” or “object”… in charge… and things that we think were God… we may have confused to be God…

Think about it… the Holy Spirit…

So to answer your three questions…

Does God exist? Yes, something… is at the very top… but… this does not mean…every reference to God in the bible… is really God… since it was unable to be explained at that time… to man…at that time…. It appeared to be God…

Does that mean God did not create mankind?
While God does exist, my belief is no, we were not created by God, we were created by a previous species of aliens… but I am also open to panspermia..

Where does that leave Jesus and the Bible?
Think about what we know about human abduction… can anyone else see the parallels between the birth of Jesus… and hybrid children allegedly born via abduction scenarios? Could the North Star… really have been a ufo?

So a question I would ask…. If Jesus was a hybrid alien… would that change a persons view of Jesus?

The number one question I get is "what do you think is the best evidence out there to support their existence?". The second most asked question "Have you ever seen an alien or a UFO?".

After that the questions go all over the place. I'll have to think about it a little more to rank the questions.....

My question to you Chris what do you see is your expertise in the field of Ufology?

Do you have a book out there on anything related to ufology or something? Just wondering. Seriously. I have no idea who you are and certainly in the last incarnaton of this forum you never participated in the all the time I was there posting on a daily basis except for that UN stuff and so on. So who are YOU???

Are you just one of those guys who disagreed with Springer on Serpo who were then kicked off that forum? And here we are talking "Jurassic Era" internet-wise. I mean, you hardly ever post here in this forum either so I hope you
understand where I'm coming from here.

Hey, I live in Ohio too and we can meet up anytime you want. I sure would love to have a conversation with you... whoever you are. I'll do a few demonstrations for you too. But I have no idea who you are.

@A99. Off topic...
Such personal questions are better suited to PM, or perhaps the introductions thread. :yes:

If you would be so kind; Garuda is looking for the questions ask of you/us by people, during discussions of ET visitations.

@bluecottoncandy

Thanks for the lengthy reply! :w00t:

At this stage, I was actually looking for the questions, not the answers. (That would be a next phase, once we've got an inventory of most frequently asked questions).

And, yes, I am familiar with Adam's Calendar. I live in South Africa, and am very familiar with Michael Tellinger's work.
He is the one who came up with the name 'Adam's Calendar'.
You may be interested in reading his first book, Slave species of God, which gives an insight into why gold mines etc.
(And, yes, it has to do with extraterrestrials visiting Earth because they need gold).


[And as a quick side note: whenever anybody of my religious friends asks the question whether God created mankind, my standard answer is: "if He/She did, it seems it just wasn't on Earth first, which shouldn't come as a surprise if we take into account that the Milky Way is more than 13 billion years old, but our solar system is less than 5 billion years old."]

Blucottoncandy,

I agree there is evidence within the Christian bible that supports extraterrestrial life.

For most of us here, including us experiencers, we have had to remain pretty much in the closet wrt to our interest in these topics. But if we do take the initiative and bring up UFOs in any given group situation, like I did one time at a Christmas dinner held at a party center attended by my brother-in-laws’ large extended Catholic family and their friends, the first question I got was, "What do you think they are?"

I was amazed at how many who were at the large round table I was sitting at were willing to talk about UFOs in a public setting like that. The ETH theory was the only one most knew about other than the sentiment that they could be just advanced military craft. No one even brought up the 'interdimensional' theory in what ended up to be a very animated conversation.

A couple of them entertained the notion that UFOs/ET's could be 'us' from the future traveling back into time. So that was talked about too. And one guy talked about someone he knew who once saw a UFO and what it looked like and so on.

But as for the 2 non-denominational evangelistic Christians at that table, such topics like UFOs are completely off-limits. So they remained silent and didn’t say a word. In fact, they refuse to even engage in any conversations about UFOs even in private conversation because of their beliefs that all things UFO and ET are demonic. This seems to be the prevailing sentiment for just about all of the Evangelistic Christians that I know within my own circle of acquaintances including family members who switched over from Catholicism to that version of Christianity.

Anyway, it seemed like everyone there at that table DID believe in UFOs. The question if they even exist or not was not even mentioned whereas if that conversation had occurred 20 years ago instead, I’m sure some would have expressed that opinion too -- but not so in this day and age.

A99
03-19-2013, 01:11 PM
So the questions those who were at that dinner party table asked about UFOs/ET''s were:
Are they aliens from other planets?
Are they time-traveler's from the future?
Are they just advanced military aircraft?
So right off the bat, those were the questions posed and those were the topics discussed that evening at that table.

It would seem the government's denial of E.T. is wearing thin on the populace.

Most people that ask me questions about UFO's / Aliens know I'm a believer in The Eternal God and a believer/follower of The Lord Jesus Christ. Here are the questions I get most often.


Do you believe UFO's come from other planets inhabited by alien species?

Do you believe alien species produce offspring as humans?

Do these alien species die as we humans die?

Are alien species demonic?

Are alien species angelic?

Are alien species as we humans, knowing good and evil?

Are alien species in camp with The Adversary (Satan,The Devil)?

Do alien species have a soul?

Do alien species have feelings and experience both giving and receiving love as humans?

Pretty much every question that has been mentioned in this thread is the standard set of questions.

I don't discuss it offline with anyone 99% of the time unless there is something I am doing to them which gets their interest to perk up. The only real questions I can remember off the top of my head is:

--What is their nature?
--How can I use (for myself) what they have shown/taught you?
--Are they of the devil? (honest question)
--How does this <insert concept> compare to <this rumor> and <this topic> in this <insert miscellaneous literature>?

Most of the dynamics of the few questions asked are mostly in the vein of what they are, who they are and.or what do they want or what can they give me.

-----------------------------

If I added my own questions I myself asked of the ET, the questions would be well outside the standard set of questions. I hope there will be a thread like that.

Seeing or knowing nothing on the topic seems to lead to the base questions. (The Identity and specific Relationship to the person asking questions.)

"Knowing something" of them and "Seeing something" of them leads to more complicated and intimate/invasive questions.

------------------------------

(Like, "Why do you live in the valleys and mountains areas of the Earth and not in the clear and open spaces with your hidden technologies?")

To which shifting feet and stares at one another are the only reply I'd imagine. (or outright denial and a quick change of subject?)

Or

"Why are there engineering specifications [for a weapons platform] within the mind of this Grey member? More importantly, when I glimpsed into his mind without his permission, I noticed that the specs defined and say it is mounted on a heavy transport system of human design". I thought you said you don't have anything to do with Human Projects?"

[Downplayed with "We spy on Human Projects" and "Don't ever mention what you saw anywhere, nor ever speak or repeat it ever again. You'll risk your safety and our project."]

Well.... I feel like an idiot not understanding the original... theme... of this post... I am sorry...

Many of the people I work with seem to have advanced degrees an ss a result, they are skeptic in nature becasueif it is not something that was taught at a post university level, they are very closed off to the topics we talk about in these forums.

So, the questions I get can be as basic as…

What evidence is there to confirm that what was seen or experienced was real?

How reliable is the source of the reported incident?

To the very technical…

How it is that element 115 can be used as a power source when it has a half-life time of 220 milliseconds?

It is quite draining…lol

I do not have a book to sell nor do I consider myself to be an expert in any particular aspect of Ufology. I do have a life long interest in Ufology and I strive to provide a place where others with a similar interest can talk about their experiences and opinions.

I'm not sure how you don't know who I am or what I have done . I have lectured on the subject matter at the 2010 UFO Conference in Bordentown, NJ. I have also conducted many interviews on the subject and I have been interviewed on several of the popular radio shows, including twice on The Kevin Smith Show.

I have made a point to establish relationships with people in the military, government, intelligence and corporate worlds who might know something about our favorite subjects being discussed here at TOP. This leads in directly to my passion about Disclosure and helping to bring it to fruition.

As to my postings, I wish I could do more but I run my own business and am heavily involved in charitable pursuits. This does prevent me from posting as much as I would like to but I do have a few hundred posts here at TOP and I had a few thousand at "the old place".

If you've had this conversation, what were the questions you've been asked?

Most of the time, when I started talking about UFOs to friends who weren't in the field, they didn't ask me questions about it. They seemed to change the subject or move away to talk to someone else. The topic is still very taboo with some people in NYC. The one who did ask me a question usuall wanted to know why are they here. They would ask, "Why would they come all this way to Earth?"

Why haven't they landed on the White House lawn?
Why haven't they contacted us?
Why haven't they taken over Earth already?
Why are they so interested in Earth?
Who made them?
Does that mean mermaids, werewolves and unicorns are real too?
Was Jesus an alien?
Why do their ships have lights?
Are there good and bad ones?
Why do they abduct/probe people?
Why do they resemble us so much?
Are you an alien?

I have been asked this one a few times:

- "Why the need for secrecy...?"

Most people seem to be talking about the government here and haven't even considered that the ETs may also have a need for secrecy. Another one that goes hand in hand with this (although it would become largely irrelevant with open disclosure), is:

- "How do they keep it secret...?"

It is rumored there are three Grey alien races. They are at the end of their genetic breeding code.

One Grey race is attempting to turn us into them and save their species, hence abductions and whatever.

Second Grey race has sided with humans from other star systems against what is going on.

Third Grey race doesn’t care one way or another about what is going on.

Extraterrestrials likely have adhering guidelines. Earth labeled as developing has kept humans on that planet isolated. With an isolation in place, extraterrestrial traffic on and off the planet is kept from view of inhabitants. It is possible an extraterrestrial species skirts around those guidelines.

Thanks for your reply on this Chris. I was only around the last few years at the old place and because of this, my knowledge about the background information on how everybody first ended up over there is very sketchy. But in your above post, you've just clarified for me those target area's in the field of Ufology that interest you and that you are focusing on so now I'm glad I asked "who you are". I already knew that you have lectured at UFO conferences and have talked on various radio shows, but that's it. That's all I knew. But in any case, that you have been asked to speak at those places in the first place indicates to me that your overall message must resonate with many of those out there which also explains why people have followed you from one place to the other... and now to here. I was just wondering if there was some other information about you that I was missing out on but it appears that this is not the case.
Maybe someday, when you have the time, you can tell us about your own experiences and what got you interested in Ufology. I would really like to hear that. In fact, it would be great if Lee and each of the mods here could give us information on their own experiences too in this area.

Chris, once again, could you please tell us about your own personal experiences having to do with UFO and/or aliens? Or, on the other hand, if you have not had any personal experiences, could you please tell us why you are so interested in Ufology anyway?

I'm just curious and want to know - it's as simple as that. You are, after all, the main guy at this forum and it's only natural for some of us to wonder where it all began with you. I'm in the same age group you are in so anything you want to contribute wrt to what I'm asking will be something that I undoubtably will be able to relate to; at least on some level. And yes, you did mention an old Disney documentary but somehow I'm thinking your interest in UFOs/Aliens goes beyond those ridiculous newswheels/documentaries shown back in the 60's, 70's and even into the 80's.

Where did it all begin for you. I really want to know. thanks.

I am certainly not the main guy here at TOP. We have four co-equal owners and a wonderful staff providing all of this to the members and the guests out of our desire to share a place to talk and chat about our experience and stories. Some of us are more willing than others to completely share and some of us have more to share than do others.

My personal interest is lifelong and I really don't have that many interesting experiences to share. I have seen the "odd" lights at night but I have seen only one daytime UFO. Why I have been interested all of my life...I really don't know. But suffice to say that I am VERY interested in it and I am happy to do what I can to help here at TOP!

Most people don't take it too seriously and don't seem too interested in talking about it. I don't preach or bring the alien topic up any more than rarely, but when it happens most people go kind of quiet and get uncomfortable, so we go back to poop jokes... But that's one of the few sincere questions I remember getting. I answered that my guess is that the majority of abductions are mainly for genetic material and for manipulating people's minds in favor of their agenda, influencing their behaviour by controlling the stage behind the scenes.

It depends upon the sophistication of the audience or person as to what answers might be given like who is ET or if there is an ET at all and if the audience or person is skeptic or believer or religious.

Most answers I receive are in the form of a giggle factor. My questions usually start slow to test parameters and sophistication of audience or person involved in the questions. How the audience or a person reacts usually depends on how I proceed.

Devout religious persons almost always answer as they are fallen angels or demons here for your everlasting soul sent by Satan and many view these questions of ET as instruments of the devil and will not consider any other explanation.

Most atheists, not all, tend to be on the skeptical side and view anything that does not belong in their belief system view is delusional and hide behind science as a crutch for their view and on the other side many atheists are totally open but have a prove it to me response which IMO is an acceptable route for discussion.

Other than just pure speculation, I can't offer proof for things I suspect may be true. That would be that I suspect that there are visitors here and probably more than one species. It seems that different behaviors that are exhibited might indicate a different species involved. Abductions and mutilations weigh on the side of indifferent, if not malevolent behavior. Then there are the benign type of experiences such as a simple sighting that many people have that just fills you with awe and wonder.

I will speak freely about it with anyone and get the kind of reactions that others here have already stated. One thing with me, personally is that I have a daughter that works at Lockheed Martin in Colorado Springs. She's involved with satellite technology. Of course, 'top secret' means what it says so she can't tell me anything in regards to her work. However she has stated that discussions of UFOs are held close to the vest. The farther you go up the ladder, the less you had better not joke about the subject. She has asked me not to ask her about anything in that regard, presently...just protocol, she says. Not exactly an admission to anything but...
