:: Secret SS Science ::

Putting an end to my recent lack of enthusiasm for tuning in to Coast to Coast AM of late, guest host George Knapp welcomed author Joseph P. Farrell to the show this past Sunday night.

Farrell would go on to discuss the finer points of his book, The SS Brotherhood of the Bell. Detailing a secret Nazi weapons project designed to manipulate space-time and bring the failing evil empire back from the brink of defeat, it sounds like a very interesting read. Obviously the project didn't turn out as the Nazi's had hoped, but according to Farrell's research, the Third Reich may have been closer to creating a doomsday weapon that we would like to think.

I don't know about the rest of you, but this topic of secret Nazi super-weapons piques my imagination like none other. Raised a Catholic, I'm certainly no fan of the Nazi's values, motives or methods, but there's something about the desperation of the German leadership and their outlandish plots that I can't help but find incredibly interesting. Sort of like watching a train wreck...you know, if the conductor was trying to make a nuclear bomb, that is.

Before I jump into the nuts and bolts of the Farrell interview and give my $0.02 on it, I'd like to first point out a terrific topic George Knapp brought up at the start of the show. After ripping Dan Burisch a new one and calling him out on his crap, Knapp went on to present his thesis as to how he feels that hucksters like Burisch and cheap internet hoaxers the likes to be found on YouTube are the cancer eating away at the credibility of the field of Ufology. In a sort of informal Ufological state of the union address, Knapp puts the blame on the hoaxers and their gullible audiences for giving critics of the field too much fodder to bring against it.

A topic I've been writing about in my Viral Ufology articles, I think Knapp pretty much hit the head of this nail as artfully as I've heard. With Area 51 and the UFO debate as close to Knapp's heart as it is, it was an honest call to arms to clean up all this skullduggery and make it an area of research worth focusing on. Kudos to Knapp for expressing his thoughts so astutely and with such conviction. Well done.

Now then, on with the show as they say. As someone with an interest in the subject of Nazi esoterica, I must admit that I had never heard of this 'Bell' project that Farrell discussed. Described as a mechanism for two drums filled with a mysterious substance to be spun in opposite directions, its intended purpose was to create some kind of space-time bubble. I'm not sure what such a Star Trekky term really means, but Farrell seems to believe it had something to do with an uber-powerful propulsion system.

Overall, I was entertained by the interview and impressed with George Knapp's hosting. Although the topic of Nazi super-weapons is out of his expertise, Knapp was able to keep up with Farrell and ask the right questions in an acceptably fluid pace. He's no Art Bell, but ultimately I think he was a better choice of host over George Noory. Though there was one part where I (*gasp*) discovered a new-found appreciation for Noory's veteran broadcasting skills. After Farrell's phone went haywire and they were forced to try to reconnect, Knapp nervously tried to go to commercial--but due to Coast's rigid commercial schedule, he had to think quick and BS his way through a couple minutes of awkward silence instead. If there's anything Noory is good at, it's BS'ing when technical difficulties arise.

It wasn't long before Knapp tried to bring Ufology into the interview, however. Soon the discussion strayed from theories of Nazi generals escaping war-crime trials and continuing the Reich in secret to such topics as the persistent Nazi UFO legends, a possible link between the Bell project and the Kecksburg acorn, and even a Nazi link to the moon landing.

That last one threw me off guard at first. Basically, the theory says that because the true mass of the moon has been kept secret from us and, because it's far greater than we've been lead to think, it would have taken a system like the Bell project for the lunar lander to depart from its surface. It's pretty far out there, but Nazi rockets on the moon? Sounds like a sweet B-movie or trashy rock band.

One final bit worth noting, George Knapp also broke the news that he will be hosting the show every third Sunday of the month. I'm going to come out and say that I'm pleased that this arrangement is now official. If there's one thing Knapp does well, it's talking up UFO's. And if this means that we get a quality UFO episode of Coast to Coast AM at least once a month, I'd say that's worthy of celebration. I can only hope that such quality shows wont be so few and far between in the coming months.
