Joe has been involved in the field of Ufology for sixteen years, becoming a MUFON member in 1993. It wasn't long before Joe began to see that to get to the truth of the UFO phenomenon you would need to get to the closest point on contact, the abduction experiencers. In 1994 Joe Jordan co-founded CE4 Research Group to expand his research and document the findings of his work with the Alien Abduction Experience. His findings will challenge your preconceived notions of the Alien Abduction Experience.

David Flynn :
1. The Message of the Roswell Event: Warning, Teaching, or Salutation?
2. Roswell's Link to 2012
In 1991 after completing his education at Carroll College in Montana, David Flynn created the "watcher Website" combining his background in Theology and Clinical Psychology in the research of Biblical Ufology. David's website is a repository for research dealing with UFOs, the Monuments of Cydonia on Mars, Angels, Aliens & End Time Prophecy. David has presented this research and his latest discovery of ancient geoglyphs near Titicaca, Bolivia on many radio programs and conferences, including Coast to Coast AM “Ancient of Days” lectures in Roswell, the “God, Man, ET” series at the University of Wisconsin in 2003 and the "Kokopelli 2012" in Palm Springs in 2007.
His decidedly alternative views on Cydonia were presented on the television programs "Strange Universe", and the PAX TV's -"Encounters with the Unexplained: What is Really on Mars," which explored the meaning behind the Pyramids and Sphinx-face found in NASA images of the surface of Cydonia Mars. His book "Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars" discusses knowledge that was previously known only by the highest ranking members of Mystery Schools. David's next book will be available the summer of 2008.

Alternative Theories of UFO Origins
Greg Bishop has been studying UFOs and the paranormal for most of his life. His first article on the subject was published in 1988. In his book Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth (2005 Simon & Schuster/ Pocket Books) he wrote about a government campaign of disinformation perpetrated against an unsuspecting U.S. citizen. The no-man's land between the extremes of wide-eyed belief and closed-minded debunkery has fascinated Greg and led to the birth of a magazine he co-founded called The Excluded Middle, which was a journal of UFOs, conspiracy research, psychedelia and new science (now online at excludedmiddle.com ). Wake Up Down There!, a collection of articles from the magazine, was published in 2000. His third book, Weird California, a portrait of strange and eerie history and places in the Golden State, was released by Sterling Publishers and Barnes & Noble in March of 2006. Greg’s current writing can be seen daily at the blogsite ufomystic, which is co-hosted by noted paranormal author Nick Redfern. Greg's writing has appeared in the L.A. Weekly, Fortean Times, UFO Magazine, Magical Blend, The Nose, Book Happy, and in the book-length anthologies Conspiracy And Cyberculture, Zen And The Art of Close Encounters, Kooks, and You Are Being Lied To. His article ?Ethnic Weapons For Ethnic Cleansing? was included in the top 20 of the most underreported stories of 2001 by the media watchdog group Project Censored. For two years (until it was shut down by the FCC) Greg hosted The Hungry Ghost, a radio show of interviews and music airing on a pirate FM station in Los Angeles. His current show, Radio Misterioso can be heard on Sundays from 8-10 PM PST at www.killradio.org. Interviews with fringe-topic researchers and weird music are the usual fare.
