RODS Update

In the first half, analyst Craig Hulet offered commentary on current events, terrorism, and world conflicts. "It looks to me unbelievably clear that money is going to buy the presidency, and Jeb Bush will be the next president," he declared.

In the latter half, broadcast and print journalist Gary Grossman discussed his research into the chasm between deep time (the scientific estimate that Earth is 4.6 billion years old) and a young Earth (the claim that the planet is only 7-8,000 years old put forth by some religious groups), which serves as the backdrop for his new novel.

RODS Update

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - January 11, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Jose Escamilla

During the first half of the show, explorer and filmmaker Jose Escamilla shared an update on the strange flying rods he discovered while investigating UFOs in 1994. The finned, gelatinous creatures look like "flying snakes" or cuttlefish (view images) and undulate through the air as though in a liquid, he said. He was able to capture them on video by using a high shutter speed. Lower shutter speeds will capture blurred birds and insects and that is where a lot of the confusion has set in, he explained.

The TV series Proof Positive, for instance, debunked his videos, saying that the RODS phenomena actually depicted insects. But Escamilla said they did not fully investigate his work in a scientific manner."I am only presenting the visual evidence," he noted, though he did hypothesize that the RODS may be visiting from another planetary system or another dimension, and that they have been with us for a long time, as cave paintings showed creatures that are similar to them. Part of their life cycle involves living in water, he claimed. Along with a Nippon TV crew, Escamilla investigated the very deep Cave of the Swallows in Mexico, where a 3 ft. long ROD was photographed.

The second half of the show featured Open Lines, with a special line set up for callers to share their views of the turmoil in the Middle East.
