    Battlefield Earth with Jim Marrs

    in Paranormal

    Mr. Marrs has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, CSPAN, the Discovery, Learning and History Channels, This Morning America, Geraldo, Montel Williams, Today, Tech TV, The Larry King Show, George Noory and Art Bell radio programs along with numerous national and regional radio and TV shows.
    Elon Musk has come out on the September 1st SpaceX explosion at Cape Canaveral as not ruling out a UFO as the cause of the disaster.  This is an event that could be evidence of a malevolent alien factor as put forth in the international bestseller, Battlefield Earth.
    In 1977, NASA launched the space probe Voyager. One of its missions was to answer the question, "Is there intelligent life beyond our planet?" Residing on the Voyager was golden disc containing voices, music, images of plants and animals on Earth—it also contained an interstellar map to Earth.
    Since at least 2010, Stephen Hawking, famed physicist, has spoken publicly about his fears that an advanced alien civilization would have no problem wiping out the human race the way a human might wipe out a colony of ants. He noted that human beings have a terrible history of mistreating, and even massacring, other human cultures that are less technologically advanced — why would an alien civilization be any different? Hawking stated, "If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans."
    In 2012, Voyager 1 hit deep space.
    Jim Marrs will speak about the subject of alien life and what is the likelihood of getting an answer from outer space much like the scenario outlined by L. Ron Hubbard in his international bestseller, Battlefield Earth, where the Voyager was picked up by an alien probe which resulted in Man becoming an endangered species.

About Hobbies

Riddle us this: What's the most geektastic thing you choose to do in your spare time? Are you a big-time gamer? A gardener? A Comic Con fiend whose loyalty falls on one side of the DC-Marvel spectrum? The way we spend our time outside work is as varied as our personalities, and let's face it, we're all nerds about something. Maybe your browser history shows you're bidding on a Star Wars action figure or a lamppost for your Lionel train layout. Perhaps your preference for the paranormal means you download every episode of America's Most Haunted. No matter your guilty pleasure, BlogTalkRadio allows hobbyists to geek out together on whatever it is they gravitate – or levitate – toward. Talk shop with bloggers, critics, even blog critics, on what matters to you, or steer the conversation by hosting your own niche show. Oh, and it probably goes without saying, Trekkies welcome here.
