I appreciate your response, JohnGrey.
This topic has never been of much concern for me, but it's noteworthy that
a kind of industry is built around it. On the website it says:
Dr. Steven M. Greer, M.D., is widely regarded as the world’s foremost authority on UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence, and is the author of four insightful books and multiple DVDs on the UFO/ET subject. -

So, take that, and consider your first paragraph:
Greer, like most other ufologists, is a fraud and a charlatan. And like the rest in his field, he's built a comfortable business on bilking money from the ignorant and those that will believe anything, simply because they lack any faculties to think critically on their own. I wouldn't trust him to give me medical treatment, but it's also not difficult to understand why he'd give up his practice given that he charges about a grand to teach one to (and this is a direct quote from some of his lecture materials) "initiate contact with ETs using consciousness, coherent thought, lasers, electromagnetic signals, and group processes." Oh, yes, there's an enlightened soul for you.
..and I have to ask, do you know of any "others in his field" who have made
the claim of "widely regarded as the world's foremost authority..."?
I'm not trying to pitch for Greer or anything, I just would like to know if
you have a fast answer that could save me spending hours looking at sites
I'm not really interested in. Research isn't my forte.
As for this film, apparently you can't see it yet. You can pay to "rent it" but
you won't be able to get "your money's worth" until it becomes viewable.
You can "buy the DVD" but it won't be shipped probably until after the
Premiere Showing, as billed below. So his radio appearance and interview was
pretty much a promo for the movie to hype up interest, which this post of
mine is perhaps doing for free - because he isn't paying me, that's for sure.
His online bookstore is called "MyShopify" - what's that supposed to mean?
Shopify doesn't make sense to me. When you append -ify to a word, it
ought to be indicating a transformation of one thing into another, like
petrify or mortify or fortify or gratify or typify.
Is it just weird - the weird shop? My Shopify - like shop here and make
yourself into a weirdo?
One of the products is a combo book-and-DVD called "Countdown to
transformation" ($24.94) - looks like this:
Here's an item that isn't being promoted front and center - and it's just

Does anyone here know Charlottesville? How big is the Paramount Theater?
Does the Theater have any info on this premiere showing on May 9th?
Maybe advance sales are doing well and no more promo is needed?
As for the "training program," here is a DVD for $155 - a lot less than $1,000:
Uuuhhh........... that looks just like the $24.95 version, above.....(?)
