OK, I realize it's a bit dated now, but I finally just has to say something about it. NASA  is at it again, it would seem; this time, Dr Richard B. Hoover claims he has found life in a meteorite:

Alien Fossilized Life in a Meteorite?

LA Times and Alien fossil

And now the comedy begins... how many times have we seen this opera before?

Act One: Aria from a NASA scientist who publishes evidence for alien life

Act Two: A chorus of other scientists denounce the finding for various reasons: the paper was published in a less-than-respected venue, the reasoning is flawed, the scientist in question didn't consult the Agency, the data/sample was corrupted, there wasn't adequate peer review, etc etc blah blah blah, da capo a fine.

Act Three: ... the opera dissolves in a fantasia of confusion and lack of resolution in a kind of Wagnerian dissolution and we all go back to our business and forget about it.

Well, having heard this opera so many times before, I have a gnawing problem, and it's not whether Dr Hoover or his detractors are doing bad science or good science. My problem is a philosophical one.I'm beginning to wonder exactly what the criteria would be for scientists to accept any evidence of fossilized alien life?

My second problem is this: why are we being treated to this same opera over and over again? It's as if there's something more going on here than pure science and squabbles between this and that point of view within it. Of course, those in the alternative community will immediately say it's all because of the "D" word (disclosure is immanent, this is another indicator!). I just can't shake the suspicion that these types of "disclosures" are more than just cases of this or that isolated scientist sharing his data, and I just cannot shake the idea that the response from the rest of his peers, is also some part of a vast theater.

It's one more reason that I never liked opera.

    Something in a rock? I’ve got it on very good authority that at this moment
    one of our alien brothers is walking the pentagon halls in his colonel suit
    carrying a file folder. For you nonmilitary types a file folder is nothing more
    than a hall pass required of all one stars and below at the pentagon.

    I agree Mr. Farrell, I thought this way years ago. It seems as if, I appreciate how strange this sounds, that the whole show is to direct the public mind to the fact that we have never discovered “alien” life. When all along, in some fashion, it may have been here for a very long time, remnants of a “cosmic war” perhaps? Social engineering again?

    “My problem is a philosophical one.I’m beginning to wonder exactly what the criteria would be for scientists to accept any evidence of fossilized alien life?”

    When the microbes grow into a huge mobile colony like a slime mold, and crawl
    out of the test tube or whatever and bites one of them on the ass.

    As for why all this, I guess it is because someone every so often notices
    something, and the rest are in denial or on a payroll or whatever. Probably
    didn’t get in a peer reviewed journal because the writer knew they didn’t
    want to take it, might fire him, and he wanted the news out while he still had
    some credentials.

    There are those in the scientific establishment who will deny ET life even when the aliens are standing in front of them aiming weapons to blast them out of existence. A big part of the ego sickness in academia is that many of these people hold themselves up as the pinnacle of knowledge, and they cannot handle anything that creates cognitive dissonance with that delusion. Others are just part of the lie.

    I was enamored of the Disclosure movement for a while, and I do think that Greer has brought out some valuable information (if one knows how to read between the lines), but his focus on “communing with the aliens” psychically pretty much destroys his credibility, as does his stance that all aliens are good, which is a statistical impossibility. I think that, willingly or not, he is just another layer of the disinformation campaign.

    Given the ability to induce sounds, images, behaviors, and who knows what else in people’s heads through technology, how does he know he isn’t being conned into thinking it’s aliens he is talking with?

    Knowing what I know now about how long this tech has been experimented with, I question most of the psychic/channeled material I used to think might have some useful information (not very much, really). I now have an image of a facility where trained operators sit and “tune in” to their various subjects, and dictate information from a script or group of other operators through the “channel.” Even the term “channel” begs the thought of technology. I always found it interesting that these “higher beings” never seemed to have any knowledge or information beyond what is current in human knowledge, often it is not even current! Another dead giveaway, if you’ll pardon the pun.

    Even all the psychic tests that Seth/Jane Roberts passed with flying colors were nothing which could not be done with this technology. If they can get into our heads, all bets are off.

    Actually, not a bad scenario for a comedy sci-fi film; Robin Williams working in a secret facility? Think of all the gags he could play on his victims…..(John Candy would also be great, if he was still around.)

    Or, maybe a new version of the short story “Gottlos.”

      The Stargate Conspiracy, though the writers are part of the channeling
      deception themselves, came to this conclusion regarding anything that
      claims to come from “the Nine.”

    Disclosure? Might there be a group think tank behind the scenes that could be cluing the rest of us that there might have once existed a former major planet in this solar system that once had been, like the earth today, teeming with abundant life that was somehow caused to explode? A ceaselessly continuous “soap opera,” something like: “The Days of Our Cosmic Warriors?”
