Peter Robbins: Imagery, Reality, and UFOs: Sorting Truth From Fiction - Somewhere in the Skies
This episode is dedicated to the memory of Jim Marrs (1943-2017)
On episode 17 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks briefly about the recent passing of conspiracy legend and author, Jim Marrs. Then, he sits down with Peter Robbins, UFO researcher and author for an in-studio discussion. After a few beers, Robbins runs us through a brand new lecture he's currently shaping and refining on the following:
The lecture begins with questioning why 'we' respond to the subject of UFOs the way we do and how society was conditioned to understand that UFOs are nonsense. What constitutes 'proof,' or at the least, UFO related images we should consider taking seriously? What about 'ancient aliens' type images? What about other historical imagery? What we can learn from pre-digital UFO photographs, and what marks the 'real' ones as authentic? How did UFO news coverage, that is print journalism, impact public thinking in the 1940s? And what was the legacy it implanted in the public's psyches? How will the truth ultimately manifest itself? Alternate theories are examined and considered in this episode.
