I'd Love To Believe...

...but the proofs just aren't there. As a kid who grew up loving science and adoring science fiction I'd really like to believe we've been visited. Where is the proof though? One unproven theory that seems to make sense on top of another unproven theory that seems to make sense just doesn't equal proof. It equals good sci-fi, but not proof. I like to be entertained by stuff like this but to me it's along the lines of alternate history sci-fi. Speculative fiction at best. The CIA bought the national enquirer to make everybody scoff at the very idea of ETI? Again, great MIB fodder but to take it seriously, I just can't. I have yet to be convinced. Why would they be so patient about any takeover? Surely they could handle us pretty easily and quickly. As a teenager on Long Island I saw something hovering very low and it was larger than a plane or chopper would appear in the sky. There was no sound like a motor, no helicopter blades,as would definitely be heard by something flying/hovering that low, and we didn't have drones buzzing around in 1975. It vanished very suddenly too but all these years later as a grown man I just can't be sure it meant there are extraterrestrials visiting us. I'd like to believe but for now I'm still stuck with wondering.

For those who don't have time to waste watching this nonsense I'll sum it up in a nutshell: The Day Before Disclosure is pure bovine fecal matter. Just another re-hashed UFO movie with interviews of the same old Ufology circuit by Terje Toftenes. There's nothing new here and the "evidence" provided is laughable.

Interview excerpts include known hoaxers like the Chiropodist Roger K. Leir aka the "Alien Implant Doctor", who boasted about cutting implants out of alleged "abductee's"...FEET! Yep, he showed a bloodied toe where it appears he removed a bunion and then said the bloodied bit was an alien implant. He refused to allow these "implants" to be studied by reputable scientists to validate his claim, so I call nonsense. He's as believable as the Filipino faith healers who perform "psychic surgery" (which the US FTC has proved to be medical fraud), by creating the illusion of performing surgery using trickery and animal entrails to convince the patient that the diseased anatomy was removed and that the incision spontaneously healed. (See more via Wikipedia).

Various alleged "abductees" are interviewed, as well as the scammers Budd Hopkins (I wouldn't buy a used car from Hopkins let alone allow him to fiddle with my mind) and David Jacobson who do more harm than good by messing with the minds of emotionally fragile people who probably have issues like depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or suffer from sleep paralysis. These so-called psychologists use regression/hypnotherapy, and plant leading questions about aliens into the minds of traumatized individuals who are seeking help. Conning these people through hypnosis into believing they've being abducted by aliens and have undergone painful experiments without any ability to defend themselves against so-called "gray aliens" is downright cruel and damaging. Go ahead Jacobson, pull my other finger...

Terje includes old interviews with Nick Pope, Stanton Friedman (the failed Astrophysicist and his annoying Roswell/Majestic 12 claims which have been thoroughly debunked) and Richard Dolan who talks a lot but says very little, mainly saying it might be true but it might not be true. Yawn. Other excerpts include Steven Greer (the self-declared "global ambassador" to aliens who looks like a smug Ninja Turtle) Fyfe Simmington of the Phoenix Lights and Jim Penniston whose claims about the Rendlesham Forest incident (should be renamed the RendleSCAM incident) become more bizarre and embellished with each re-telling. Gordon Cooper's words have been twisted once again - he has always said he DID NOT see a UFO land on a runway at an air-force base, he says he was given a roll of FILM with photos of the alleged landing and sent it straight to his superiors and never heard of it again. But Terje would like you to believe that Gordon Cooper saw it with his own eyes. Talk about cherry-picking and fabricating details! ALL of the stories in this movie have been seen before and are old news. There are very few first hand accounts from so-called "witnesses", almost all is secondhand, anecdotal evidence these "witnesses" heard from somebody else who they trusted and thought were credible. I have no doubt that some of these military men, astronauts and other scholars thought that what they saw WAS extraterrestrial, but there are other, perfectly logical explanations that have nothing to do with UFO's or ET's.

Terje's movie is a waste of time and the case for Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny is more believable than this pathetic attempt at proving UFO's exist and that "Disclosure" is imminent. Show us empirical/forensic evidence that has been scrutinized by reputable scientists and I'll consider the possibility. Until then I'll keep believing in unicorns farting rainbows and continue debunking silly Prime "documentaries" that I watch late at night due to bad insomnia. At least they send me to sleep...

Brilliant!!!

10/10

This is a world-class film, exquisitely produced and thoughtfully scripted. This is the real deal and is consistent with everything that has been poking into the public consciousness for decades.

US started trying to shoot them down in 1952–this is about as smart as the Spanish declaring any indigenous peoples who did not speak Spanish to be heathens subject to enslavement. Lost so many pilots the order finally rescinded in 1954 or so.

Many excellent interviews with a range of serious people.

The Roswell alien crash was directly associated with US early nuclear endeavors probably being "scouted" by concerned aliens.

Most disturbing is the lengths that US and UK governments went to drug and otherwise disorient and silence direct witnesses who were not "cleared" to be aware of extra-terrestial matters.

Brazilian and Russian reports suggest alien activity in "containing" effects of early nuclear explosions.

Mexico is so focused that a two-hour prime time show covers UFOs once a week.

Norway has world's only full-time UFO spotting and assessing station (Hessdalen) Excellent discussion of both alien collection (e.g. two ton slab of earth cut and lifted with no evidence of heavy equipment) and alien concern over Homo Sapiens combination of nuclear weapons, violent nature, and early space exploration. Specific discussion of alien interventions to cause offensive missile malfunction as well as "shut down" of missiles on alert….

Relationship of media to intelligence explored in a very negative manner–fast forward to 9/11! National Enquirer bought out by CIA front company to sensationalize and marginalize extra-terrestial material.

Bleeding-edge thinking is that Homo Sapiens is a hybrid possibly altered from earliest days of emergence. Covers abductions, surgical procedures, samples with focus on reproductive organs. Babies, toddlers described in various forms of human to alien mixtures. Abductees who have children see the children abducted in turn, as if the aliens are doing generational studies.

As many as 60 distinct alien "types" are believed to exist, playing many different roles across many different types of human groups and activities.

"Truth Embargo" implemented 62 years ago is coming to an end. Classification is an obstacle, and especially so in NASA of all places. The truth will come out. This is the story of the Millennium. It will change virtually every paradigm across every science *and* (even more importantly) our cosmic/social paradigms.

A "must see" film.
