Bill Ryan is another great UFO researcher, in some ways similar to Steven Greer (in maintaining fortified paradigms), and in some ways very much not (wider views of negative ETs and their influence are considered.)
In the past, some drama occurred between Corey Goode and Bill Ryan which has caused (or been partly a result of) Bill’s forum (Project Avalon) basically turning against people like Corey and David Wilcock. Bill’s forum is also largely close minded about the possibility of William Tompkins being fully honest or trustworthy, which is the direction that many open online forums go when it feels they are finally “overrun” in some way. For these reasons I am curious to check in from time to time to see how they are dealing with new information and updates while maintaining very skeptical, but still relatively well informed, perspectives.
I may post more of their alternate views from time to time, which I think helps us remain respectful of a wider range of beliefs.
Here is Bill Ryan’s post I wanted to share:
I was asked by a friend a couple of days ago which researchers or authors I’d recommend to an intelligent and curious person who knew almost nothing about the subject. Good question. My list was quite short:
- Richard Dolan, of course. Trained as an academic historian, and exemplary in everything he writes, says and does.
- Linda Howe, seasoned, smart, sane and professional, and who has been in the field forever, is close in quality.
- Timothy Good is another. He wrote one of the UFO researchers’ ‘Bibles’, Above Top Secret, in 1988, which is as valid and valuable now as it was then.
- George Knapp is always fact-oriented, solid and grounded, a professional journalist and TV presenter himself.
- Jim Marrs, too: everything he does is impeccably researched. He wrote the excellent Alien Agenda.
- Colin Wilson wrote Alien Dawn … significant because Wilson was an occult researcher and knew little about UFOs, but felt he should really take a look and write something. (And it was a good book, too, as Wilson was himself a beginner in the field.) If my memory serves me right, he read (or, probably skimmed through the indexes of!) 2,000 other books to prepare himself to write his own. That’s real scholarship, and that’s a dying skill.
