Jim Marrs, New York Times bestselling author of "Alien Agenda," the top selling non-fiction book on UFOs in the world, answered a few questions on aliens, "Battlefield Earth" and the upcoming Galactic Wisdom Conference.
When asked what prompted Jim to write "Alien Agenda," Jim stated, "With the success of 'Crossfire' about the JFK assassination, I asked around the country what did people think was the next big secret government cover-up. Almost unanimously, people said they wanted to know about the UFOs. I thought 'I do too' so I began seriously investigating this subject which led to 'Alien Agenda.'"
In terms of Jim's view of the current space race and the likes of Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson working to commercialize space travel, Jim stated that he "recalls when we were all told that we would colonize the moon and Mars and mine for minerals that would pay for space projects. Since the Government seems to have dropped the ball on exploring space (unless there's a Secret Space Fleet as claimed by some) I think it is only right and proper for the private sector to take up the endeavor of putting humankind off planet."
Jim has referred to the bestselling novel "Battlefield Earth" this past year, but does not seem to be too worried about the possibility of an alien invasion stating, "I believe there is a certain risk involved with moving into space but the benefits outweigh the risks. I am not overly concerned with the idea of an alien invasion as depicted in 'Battlefield Earth' because UFOs have been a part of human history all the way back (Think Ezekiel and the flying fiery wheel). If they wanted to invade, why wait until now, why didn't they do that when all we had to defend ourselves with was spears. However, we need to start thinking of ourselves as citizens of the Galaxy and I think that L. Ron Hubbards book, 'Battlefield Earth,' kind of typifies that and gives us a good starting point."
Jim will be featured this weekend as a speaker at the third annual Galactic Wisdom Conference to be held March 10-12, 2017, in the WA Land Yacht Harbor Center. Speakers include Scott Lemriel (Galactic Alliance UFO contactee), Simon Parkes (English ET contactee), Tony Rodrigues (of the Secret Space Program), Seiichro Yoshinouchi (aka Dr. Yoshi Hado/vibrational healer from Tokyo, Japan), Michiko Hayashi (Emoto Peace Project, Tokyo, Japan). Dr. Gerald Pollack (Famous water scientist), Emma Louise Hansen (Andromedia contactee from Norway), Billy Woodard & Zorra (Hollow Earth and former Base Commander, Area 51), Robbie Holtz (Australian Aboriginal healer), Carolyn White (psychic and aura reader), and Ted Mahr (Out of this World Radio & TV), among others.
