Dismissing the Truth Regardless of the Evidence

By Dr. John Reizer

Despite the frequent presence of impressive, credible evidence, it often seems impossible for most people to vacate their close ties to conventional paradigms. Human beings appear to be wired in a certain manner and the powers that be that are creating and controlling our collective understanding of reality know how to pull our strings, so to speak.

It’s not due to a lack of evidence or proof that the more plausible answers to the world’s biggest questions are often discarded in favor of more conventional solutions. There’s a more logical reason why people forever cling to the “down to earth” explanation of life. To have to, suddenly, question what you have been previously told was the truth for your entire life can be a difficult thing to handle. Sometimes it’s a lot more comfortable for people to not have to go against the grain of society.

Our innate abilities to be able to detach from conventionality and explore more plausible explanations, concerning world issues, have been methodically eroded from our psyches over long periods of time. The self-limiting personality factors we have developed preclude most of us from being able to recognize the differences between real and perceived truths. We have, in a sense, been indoctrinated by society and society’s tools to only accept as the truth what official sources report to us.

In most instances what is reported to us through corporate and other official sources should not be regarded as the truth. The official sources of information, we regularly rely upon, are not to be trusted as they have clear and defined agendas to misinform the masses and continue to do so on a daily basis.

When an unconventional hypothesis is presented to society, the debunkers attempt to destroy the hypothesis. When the hypothesis is supported by evidence, the debunkers attempt to destroy the evidence. When the evidence is too impressive to destroy, the debunkers still attempt to discredit the material in the hope that the general population will agree with them.

On one hand, some of us require no proof, whatsoever, concerning certain beliefs. We completely accept ancient myths as facts. On the other hand, we routinely dismiss, from our minds, plausible conspiracy theories; reported encounters with aliens; UFO sightings clearly captured on film and questionable government statements concerning well known public events. Even with the presence of hardcore evidence available for our review, many of us will maintain our traditional beliefs about certain subjects.

Simply put, we have been conditioned from a very young age to reject the truth whenever it strays from popular opinion. Most of us do this because it feels safe to agree with down to earth thinking people and because the prospect of standing alone, as a person that disagrees with conventional wisdom, can be a frightening experience.

    This is all true. The “status quo” certainly preys on our confirmation bias.


    Having said this, we should be careful in what we accept as truth. For it’s also human nature to pin the blame on convenient “boogie men” (that’s not to say that some of these boogie men aren’t real).

    I am glad you mentioned UFOs. What are the strongest cases in your opinion? I mean, a good UFO story with enough evidence to follow up on?

    I remember listening to a debate between Stanton Friedman and Michael Shermer (both of whom I am a big fan of). Shermer’s point was that he had delved into a few UFO cases and found that they were bogus, and that he shouldn’t be expected to literally research every case. Friedman was making the claim (or at least implying) that Shermer couldn’t dismiss the UFO phenomenon without researching more cases. I wished someone had interjected a message such as: Ok, Stanton, give Michael your pick for the top 5 “most substantiated UFO cases” and challenge him to research these. This debate between these two went nowhere. Sadly, Friedman came off a bit vitriol and in the exchange and I lost some respect for him.

    Hi Jamie,

    Obviously, there are UFO cases and paranormal incidents that can be attributed to hoaxes and misinformation being created by disinformation agents and publicity seekers. Having stated that, I absolutely believe a large percentage of cases are valid observations coming from very credible people.

    There’s no doubt in my mind that extraterrestrials are involved with our world and have been for a very long time. I think that the fact that we are seeing, as a nation and internationally, so many cases is a direct testament to the fact that these beings are here. And I also believe there is more than one species interacting with Earth.

    I have studied this subject and related topics for a lengthy period of time so my perspective of reality is a bit different than the average American citizen.

    Many of the UFO cases that have been placed out in the public arena that turned out to be hoaxes were intentionally placed into the public’s view for just this purpose. The goal of the disinformation agents is often to undermine the credibility of the genuine cases which, for the most part, are ignored and not given the light of day.

    Thanks for reading!

    Hi John – I am curious to know how you came to have no doubt in your mind about UFOs. Do you have specific cases that convinced you after a thorough due diligence on your part? That is what I’m interested. I don’t doubt there exists a sea of misinformation (on top of hoaxes, delusions and mistakes). This is why I’m looking for a couple of smoking gun cases.

    Keep up the good work!

      Hi Jamie,

      I think I’ve always known, since a young boy, that we were not alone. If you’re asking me when I became 100% convinced, I can’t tell you a specific date and time or even a certain case that was the clincher. I can tell you that I have observed a lot of evidence, over the years, that reinforced my beliefs. About six or seven years ago I came across the marsanomalyresearch.com website that shows loads of civilization evidence on Mars and the moon. These photographs were absolutely incredible and most important supplied by USGS and NASA. No way the content was fake and the pictures were all very revealing. I know this is off world, but it was evidence of other civilizations. You should take a look.

      I don’t pretend to know everything that’s happening in the world or the universe but I think I have a pretty good idea about some of the basics that are going on here. For some people that might not be enough proof to convince them and that’s okay. My job is not to convince anyone except for myself. And I’ve done that a long time ago. I attempt to write materials, from time to time, that will hopefully make people think. They can accept, reject, or do whatever they feel appropriate with the information. Hopefully they will do their own research and come to a conclusion based on information they uncover.

      In the end it doesn’t really matter whether you or I agree or disagree on a given subject because reality is what it is. Our perception of that reality may differ greatly but what is on Mars or the moon is already there.

      If you’re truly interested in understanding what’s really happening on this planet you need to commit to your own research. The UFO subject is very interesting to a lot of people because we have been conditioned all of our lives to believe that there are no aliens or other forms of intelligent life in the universe.

      By the way, you’re never going to find the answers to your questions on the mainstream media circuit. And no I cannot tell you what alternative media companies are the best to access. Even the most reliable alternative media sources are handed misinformation at different times. With experience you learn to separate the information from the disinformation. It’s as simple as that and yet that’s not a simple thing to pull off.

      I wish you good luck and want to thank you for participating and writing such intelligent and though provoking questions. I can tell by your comments that you are sharp and want to find out the truth.

        Thanks for the thoughtful responses John. I guess I’ll check out the Mars pics some more. I remember coming across some stories regarding what someone found on Google Mars, and there was a ‘debunker’ claiming that, while it appeared to be a formation of sorts, it was more likely (I forgot the alternative explanation, but it seemed plausible and per usual, I went back to working on something that pays the bills). Maybe I’ll jump back onto the Mars thing using marsanomalyresearch.com.

        But regarding UFOs, it would have been immensely helpful to have a watertight cases or two (for example, witnesses A, B and C all saw UFOs at X hour, and local paper article Y supports this, while contemporaneous police report Z also coincides with this).

        Trust me I don’t expect mainstream media to inform me on this. But you have to give Larry King some credit for going out on a limb and hosting an entire segment on the subject. And Dan Aykroy’d pursuit of this subject has also fascinated me (no one can claim he’s some random kook looking for 15 seconds of fame).
