Here's a link to @sgreenstreet
's entire playlist that eventually led here: Basement Office Playlist
. The playlist starts with Greenstreet and Nick Pope (that UFO guy from the UK MoD) discussing various UFO stories. If I remember correctly, Greenstreet starts the series as somewhere between believer and skeptic (please correct me if I'm wrong; it's been a while).
For those not interested in watching the entire ~15 video series, I recommend just starting on the Lue Elizondo episodes and going from through the end of the Skinwalker episodes. The first 10 or so are fun, but not as focused on the skeptical side of things this website is for. The remaining episodes after are directly relevant to the modern revival from the Pentagon releases, and this is when the skepticism really starts to turn up.
The videos get especially spicy once Greenstreet turns his attention to the more recent UFO videos and Lue Elizondo specifically.
. Moving on to videos on the various UFO programs AATIP, AAWSAP and those involved. There are numerous inconsistencies in stories from the players involved. No evidence ever shared. Confounding reality TV shows.
Finally, the last 5 episodes are on SkinWalker Ranch, starting with this one
It's impossible to easily summarize several hours of video, but it's worth watching for any skeptic. The basic summary is Greenstreet researches the history of Skinwalker ranch, interviews relevant people, and eventually spends a night at the ranch. Essentially, nothing makes sense by the end of it. Some things are almost too stupid to believe they're real, but everything is verified in the videos.
So finally a question for Mr @sgreenstreet
. Do you have any firm belief in what's truly going on here? My impression from watching these videos is that you grow more and more incredulous as the series goes on. Is my impression of your feelings correct? Are you pretty frustrated by the end?
When I first watched Part 3 of Skinwalker, I had a really positive impression of Brandon Fugal, and it seemed like you did too. He seemed to be a legit believer and dedicated to being open with the findings. But by part 5, it was quite clear that there is no commitment to openness. Among much else, he avoids your questions about contagions, charges for access to the ranch website, shares literally no real evidence with you at months of ghosting you. By the end of it, it just seems like a scam to me, and you seemed quite frustrated with Fugal. Do you think people like Fugal are genuine but mislead or gullible? Are they grifters?
Final episode just dropped.
at the end of the episode, he said that he requested the 5 best pieces of evidence, actual data, from Fugal. Fugal didn't respond for months, and his eventual response was just fluff from the show. I believe that accounted for the delay.
I highly recommend everyone watch this series. It's nearly impossible to summarize how absurd the whole situation is. More examples of past and present claims of unexplainable behavior, never sharing data. More connections between the major players exposed. The fact that everything is so heavily monetized has made me lean more towards deliberate scam.
One of the best moments is Greenstreet questioning Fugal on claims that there is essentially a contagious poltergeist or virus from the ranch. Greenstreet presses Fugal on why Fugal has never contacted the CDC or other authorities about this dangerous contagion, inter-spliced with clips of the stars of the show meeting with hundreds or thousands of fans (and charging them money for it).
I think we need a separate thread for the series itself (or each episode if mods prefer that). There's just so much ridiculousness to summarize.
The video is the conclusion to Greenstreet's series on Skinwalker Ranch
. It's a 47 minute video that includes a lot of new information, as well as footage from Greenstreet's night at the ranch. Spoiler alert: he didn't find any aliens, dinobeavers, or other notable paranormal activity. He does get bad allergies.
The video includes some further background on Fugal, the current owner of the ranch, including his involvement with an "archaeology" group whose goals including proving the book of Mormon and UFO sightings.
There is a further dive into the personalities involved both up front and behind the scenes, including Jay Stratton, Travis Taylor, Utah government officials. Many of these personalities also get paid thousands for their appearances at paranormal conventions.
Includes fun facts like Travis Taylor has previously speculated that Greenstreet is actually working for the Men in Black. Also lots of stonewalling from government officials.
Hopefully this is enough context in a thread where we've been discussing the videos. It's a 47 minute video, and it's difficult to summarize just how dumb a lot of the truth is.
