For the record, I will not be surprised in anyway if UFOs do not make an appearance over Alabama on October 14th, 2008.
I have heard a lot of prediction, I have witnessed a lot of hype regarding things of this nature and I have never known one as specific as this one to take place.
December 31st 1999 came and went and our world wasn’t torn apart by social upheaval or our computers having to switch the year from 99 to 2000. May 5th 2000 didn’t result in tidal waves and earth quakes brought on a seldom occurring lining up of planets, moons and such. No more serious terrorist attacks happened on US soil in the months after September 11th, poisoning our food supply or detonating dirty nukes in our cities. The list could go on.
And to add to this skeptic nature, we recently had the RickMat – Biscardi Bigfoot Conference, in August of this year. The truth and motives behind what happened with that whole thing may never be known. What is known is that it served to divide the believers from the non-believers even further and even divide rival Bigfoot groups, who it would seem, would have the same goal, some mainstream explanation for what they are so passionate about?
So why believe Blossom Goodchild and the host of other channels, psychics, and assorted weirdoes who have spoken out in support of her prediction? Why do we care? I think the fact that she gave a hard date and location (even if she has backed down from the Alabama part since then) has grabbed the attention and imagination of common folks, religious zealots, UFO believers, paranormal doubters and anyone else. I do find it odd that so many channelers, psychics and extraterrestrial contactees have joined in with Goodchild’s prediction. These folks are usually competed for the same attention and the first to throw each other under the bus when they perceive one to overstep their boundaries and say something overly controversial or give a hard prediction. Regardless of the end result, the October 14th prediction appears to be different in that nature already.
Wide spread UFO sighting have occurred before. In April of 1897, people and newspapers alike reported UFOs in the sky over the West Coast, Midwest, Texas, and South East for weeks.
The Chicago Tribune and Chicago Record ran stories from April 2nd to the 13th, reporting lights, and ‘giant airship, steel body” blinking lights at least 4 years before the Wright Brothers had success with their glider in Kitty Hawk. There was reports of a crash in Aurora, Texas on April 17th.
Could we be looking at something like that again starting October 14th? Over the sky of Alabama no less? Does that validate Goodchild and the like?
I guess we will know better on October 15th. I am looking forward to it.
