A Question of Credibility vs Belief,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Day After Roswell: A Former Pentagon Official Reveals the U.S. Government's Shocking UFO Cover-Up (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Perhaps the most difficult challenge for any individual in this day and age is challenging their own belief systems and paradigms. This is best addressed by considering the process by which we come to believe the things we do. There exist many people who, no matter what evidence they are provided with, are incapable of changing their stance. These 'sheeple', as I prefer to call them, are deeply ensconced in a myopic view of reality that has been spoon-fed to them through mass media, religious dogma, and the Cartesian model for scientific reasoning, to name a few. It is my contention that these bastions of belief are responsible, albiet subtle, for every review of this book that cannot accept the credible nature of Philip J. Corso's disclosures. The Day After Roswell provides a level of detail and credibility that is virtually unimpeachable except by those aforementioned individuals who could not believe the story even if a landing took place on the White House lawn in full daylight. As far as undermining Corso's credibility because of financial gain, rarely are 'first books' money makers, and even if this book did make him 'set for life', that doesn't really mean much considering his age. Additionally, stories such as this would not likely appear on television by virtue of the fact that, if there is indeed a government cover-up, it must be taken into consideration that the mass media is governed by its sanctioning body, the FCC -- a government agency. The Day After Roswell is informative, credible, and plausible, serving not only to shed light on what's really going on, but in view of the negative responses it has recieved, also illustrates the effectiveness of the virtual brainwashing that has closed the minds of so many individuals. This book is a must read unless you are so deeply ensconced in the fantasy that we, as a species, are alone and could not possibly have been visited by a technologically superior species whose emergence greatly precedes our own.
