Chris, see "Chariots of the Gods?" by the latter-day whack-job, Erich von Daniken. And remind me to tell you about the conversation that my dad had with said whack-job.

I'm acquainted with Mr. von Daniken's works. In a sense, he picked up the torch dropped by Wilkins, and mixed in some of Madame Blavatsky's "theosophy." Looking forward to hearing about the conversation.

Reported conversation between Hungarian American scientists. Leo Szillard and Edward Teller. 1. Do you believe there is intelligent life outside earth? 2. Yes. 1. Then why haven't they contacted us? 2. They live among us. They are Hungarians.
This is from a "Denver Post" Travel Section article in the late 90's. I don't remember who said what. As I'm 1/4 Hungarian American, I remember the conversation.

Then I suppose I can only assume your DNA is 25% alien.

Good story, Chris. Wilkins assembled an impressive array of alternative facts, so much so, that if he were around today, he'd be much in demand as an extraterrestrial expert and a candidate for the leadership of NASA.

I suspect he might have been overqualified for the current administration's liking.

 

Love that song title! I imagine he's still waiting.

Actually, The Martians conquered the Earth in 1974. You are merely a brain suspended in a vat and implanted with an ongoing stream of false memories.
