Continuing with Peter Robbins' roundtable podcast, I've responded in two more tweet storms. Here are all three:
Addressing the roundtable's devastating takedown* of the Gentry Tower theory (Travis Walton hoax)
Addressing the supposition that Charlie Wiser is a unit
Addressing Kathleen Marden, who addressed me, re. the Hills case
*You be the judge
I plan to do a few Twitter threads about the Hills case, as there's a few different angles to cover. I'm a little more comfortable with Twitter than with Facebook, and I like its bite-sized method for delivering certain types of communication.
I get emails. Sometimes they are sent by people in an RPG who appear to believe I am in the same RPG. It's pretty funny.
You can’t hindsight anything. What happened happened, so why think you can do anything about it now? ... In reality there’s almost nothing that can be proven. All there really is, is evidence. - Mike Rogers, July 16th, 2021
Mike Rogers just appeared on a UFO Classified with Erica Lukes livestream on July 16th with the same ol' tale and a few bizarre tangents. Erica encouraged him to emphatically state he was not involved in any hoax:
When a media outlet posts a front-page story that they are later forced to retract, they don't put the retraction on page 27.
Okay, sometimes they do, but they get hell for it.
Mike posted his accusation as a big shiny Facebook square. It would nice if his retraction was a similar sized post, instead of hidden away in the comments as a reply to me, an irrelevant party.

Who was The Walton Experience (1978) written for?
It was written for UFO enthusiasts, of course.
It was written for Travis to make a bit of money.
It was also written for the five witnesses in the truck. Or, at least, it was written with them in mind. According to Steve Pierce (2013), the book was written without consulting them. It was Travis's account, and the rest was based on Mike's account while Travis was missing.
I strongly urge anyone interested in the Travis Walton case to listen to Mike Rogers defend himself on this 51 Areas podcast, where "Chas" nails him to the wall with "the hard questions".
Then again, you could come back later when Chas learns the difference between a complex question and a hard one. The aim of the interview was to establish whether Mike played any part in a hoax. Yes, it's a hard question but the asking of it should be simple.
