Roswell. LBC 12/29/2017

This week's topic is Roswell, the home of of limitless extra terrestrial and government cover up conspiracy theories springing from an incident In 1947 with an alleged crash of a flying disc.

What you believe about Roswell and that incident hinges on whether or not you believe we are alone in the universe. So - do you believe we are alone?? We discover planets capable of shorting life fairly frequently, but does that mean there are aliens out there?

As a lifelong fan of science fiction, starting with the 1956 classic film Forbidden Planet, I choose to believe we are not alone. I can offer no proof in support of my belief buy I choose to believe.

The official government position on the Roswell incident is that it was simply the crash of a weather balloon, nothing more. Those alien bodies? They never existed.

Of course a huge science fiction industry has emerged. There are the benevolent aliens here to he and warn us - 1951s The Day the Earth Stood Still to the not so benevolent aliens in the Aliens series and another classic, John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) as well as many others

Whatever you believe, there isn't much better than a good movie,
 Popcorn and good company

This is the last weekly LBC post Beginning next week, Ramana and I will endeavor bring two takes on the same topic as two on one. We will rotate topic selection weekly.


  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.
    Wishing you are always healthy and happy in the year 2018

  2. I have no problem believing about Roswell.
    and the fact that we're not alone in the universe(s.
    one of my favorite scenes in the first Star Wars movie is in the bar where Han Solo and the Wookie stand among all kinds of creatures. wonderful!

  3. I too believe that we are not alone. I just do not expect aliens to land up on the joggers park behind my house any time in the foreseeable future. Nor do I expect that humans will land in some planet in the galaxy and find other beings similar to us or perhaps better than us.

    SciFi is one genre that somehow has not fascinated me. I have seen only the very first Star Wars movie and have avoided the others since then. Let us just say that I am fond of realistic movies.
