Skinwaker Ranch - NIDS’ Folly.
“Sooner or later one of us must know that you just did what you were suppose to do”
..summer evening … He (Tom Gorman) noticed a light that appeared to be watching him as it hovered over a ridge. (He had seen them many times before). …on this particular evening Gorman grew inpatient, threw down his pitchfork, and ran in the direction of the bright object. His reaction seemed to catch the object by surprise. The object darted down out of sight. Gorman quickly seized the opportunity and dove behind a nearby hay bale and burrowed out of sight. Then he waited. Sure enough within a few minutes the brightly lit object flew over the field and began flying back and forth. Gorman sensed it was looking for him. After several minutes of quartering the area it flew toward the ridge. Gorman climbed out of his hiding place and began shouting and taunting the object. Gorman said it blinked several times on and off and then flew away.

Here again we see intelligence and a kind of acknowledgement by the object. The book “Hunt For The Skinwalker”, while an exciting read, left me with many questions. I have listened to the Knapp and Kelleher PhD. Interview on Coast to Coast radio. One of the questions many readers, including myself, voiced was, “why the lack of any documentation?” Basically they replied to this question by explaining that whatever material NIDS had was not available yet, but NIDS would provide it to them when it was ready. Unfortunately the timing was wrong, (it may have been pressure from the publisher) so the book went to press withwhatever they had, which was not much.
But there are other questions. The dogs that were killed (incinerated}. Wouldn’t it have been prudent to try and find traces. There was no mention on a follow-up on what could have killed the dogs. If they were “incinerated” it would take a lot of power, especially if there were no bones or a heart left. Also, Brian, who commented on my first post pointed out:
“NOT adequately discussed was the "report" of the several pole mounted cameras where each was visible by other cameras -and yet one camera becomes vandalized without the culprit being seen by the other cameras. The conclusion here must either be one of staff conspiracy to defraud or Eureka! - a clear evidence of "high strangeness. As there is no (known to me) science data reporting or open access to the camera tapes, do we have fraud or incompetence?”
The last thing any researcher wants in their investigation is for it to be open to easy criticism . Brian has an open and honest question. Where is the Beef?
It seems since Tom and his family were experiencing most of the phenomenon, why not at least, if you could, leave one hardy scientist to live with the family during those winter months; instruments in hand? Isn’t that how earth scientists do their research? When you are trying to discovery the greatest continuing mystery of all time, which may be intelligent but not omnipotent, then extraordinary precautions are needed. Could you imagine what scientific proof of ETs or even a metaphysical intelligence would have meant. I don’t understand why there was no camera on hand. Pictures would have been something, especially in the next instance:
Four prime bulls weighing thousands of pounds were mysteriously put into a trance and moved to very close quarters: an enclosed old white locked trailer, “by some damn thing that never once showed itself”. The bulls regained awareness when Tom noticed the bulls’ trance state and started banging on the sides of the trailer to wake them up. If Tom had a camera it would have added to his testimony to have a picture of the bulls. A couple of photos of the bulls in this frozen state in a closed up trailer would have been very interesting. After banging on the trailer, the bulls woke up and kicked the trailer apart to free themselves. Tom had to run to the command center to get the portable research equipment. Why wasn’t the equipment with him ready to go? The research mode seemed more passive then active. This phenomenon seemed intelligent and fast. Portable instruments including cameras should have been with Tom Gorman all the time. Why didn’t the scientists, knowing how unpredictable this phenomenon is, not have outfitted the principal investigators with their own personal equipment.
I would have also had training seminars on the subject including this opening statement:
“Everyone here, please be aware of this all important fact. This phenomenon we are trying to research, whatever it is, is unpredictable and can be very fleeting. You may see it at any time. So that means our team has to be ready at all times. We would rather you make mistakes and photograph or measure incidents which turn out to be mundane than miss one opportunity to catch something important that will add to the research we are all here for.”
Many times UFO researchers claim the government knows more than they are admitting. yet even to this day, after there has been strong supporting evidence that phones have been tapped, (from many different UFO researchers contacts) many still use the public phone system with high level informants.
I don’t understand why researchers think ETs or the government couldn’t tap into anyone’s phone line when it comes to their security. Is it so technologically complicated? If ETs have been here since the ‘50’s, they probably have succeeded in monitoring who needs to be monitored. UFO researchers would be a prime target, easier than monitoring each person who may have incident. UFO researchers are not smarter than ETs or the intelligence community.
MUFON investigates the same way as NIDS, of course with a much smaller budget. We sent the Director of MUFON, James Carrion a series of questions and posted his answers on UFO Media Matters. The post called “Questioning the Director of MUFON” asked a direct question on this subject:
If ETs are monitoring us and one of the duties of MUFON is try and get evidence they exist, do you think using a more covert and quiet approach in investigation could increase chances of finding proof?
James Carrion MUFON:
If ETs themselves are here and want to remain unseen, then they would assume a passive covert position that would preclude their detection. But if they are actively making themselves visible to our planet’s inhabitants (flybys, landings, abductions, etc), then their active stance requires an active investigation on our part.”
None of us can be sure why these displays are used. Many of these strange displays, rather then clarify UFO phenomenon as technology, tend to confuse the subject almost beyond any explanation except “metaphysical folklore” or myth. Most important of all, the control of the displays is not ours. My own take on UFO displays are disinformation targeted psychologically to confuse and dissuade the scientific minds who may try to study them. You would have to be just plain crazy not to notice, at least as far as these displays are concerned, they are never in front of major universities or on Broadway. There is ample testimony and evidence that UFOs are not metaphysical and at many times their behavior indicates strongly a very strategic posture over our airbases, during missile launches, and in challenging our airspace.
