Barsoom was a seer

I know Barsoom was exposed as a fake on here, but he was really a seer. He seemed to know things before they happened. I think him being exposed as a fake was his plan to disappear. At first he gave clear, human explainations of speculative events in the area, but then suddenly, he gave crazy explanations. I think he was really onto something and whoever got too close so he got caught on purpose. I know he mentioned going to Cincinnati for some kind of meeting. I just saw on the news where they had seen some UFO's in Cincinnati. The UFO's were proven to be only skydivers, but could it have been Barsoom himself that exposed it? Barsoom seem to always be where the action is. I think he really was investigation UFO'a and other things in eastern Kentucky.

Barsoom was a guy that used to post about strange things on here such as UFO's and things. He did make some predictions that came true, but was proven a hoax. Some, like the above poster, thought that Barsoom purposely got caught as a hoax because he was getting to close to the truth. The other side of the coin was that some accused scifi author M H Wilson of being Barsoom. Apparently, his book the Galactic Seven had some clues in it pointing to the fake that he was really Barsoom. M H Wilson has denied this.

I have some very nice swamp property for sale in Florida if you're interested. There may be UFO's in the bottom if you dive down and check. Oh and Red Kool Aid is the best since you like drinking it so much.

I think some people were close to figuring out who Barsoom was and he went quite for a while. I think it is very possible that whoever Barsoom is they are writing a book. Barsoom seems to be putting things out there just to see what people say. Sounds to me that he is trying to get information. I know he mentioned Mufon and there is a evidence that points to science fiction writer M H Wilson as being Barsoom. Now, M H Wilson has gone out with Mufon on some cases in Kentucky and West Virgina. Oh yes, Mr. Wilson has confirmed this at a book signing I attended. Also, M H WIlson is a known associate of Kyle Lovern who has written a series of books on UFOs. It has even been rumored that Mr. Wilson has been a source for some of the information in Mr. Lovern's books. Now, having a fiction writer and UFO writer together is a interesting mix. But why the secrets? No doubt Mr. WIlson is trying to cover his tracks and perhaps it is easier to investigate UFOs when no one knows that you are doing it. ANd what about the G7 on the author's car? Is it really just an advertisment for his book, or does it mean something else? Rumor has it that even Mr. Wilson's wife has hinted at his involvment with secret government activities. She herself has worked many different jobs in the past couple of years. Seems she can go from on job to another with ease. That is kind of hard to do in this economy don't you think? So, apparently Mr. Wilson has some pull in this area and maybe beyond. Or is someone pulling his strings?

You have a good point, but it seems that a whole lot of people care. it may be nonsense but this story seems to never end. What is it about this story that keeps it going? This is not just a local thing, either. I've seen Barsoom mentioned on other sites and other cites across the county. I still want proof that this author is from or living in Pikeville. The funny thing is that no one seems to know him personally here. It has been suggested that author M H Wilson is using this as a promotional stunt. But if you think about it, why would he do that. There are a whole bunch of better ways to get the word out there. His book, The Galactic Seven, has gotten good reviews. I've heard it is over melodramatic and you have to dumb yourself down to read it. But, it is written for young adults, so that may be the way it supposed to be. Heck, most of the stuff you read and watch you have to dumb yourself down for also.

We can laugh at it all we want, but there is something about this that triggers conspiracy theorists to ponder on it. I mean, this Barsoom story is better than most of the crap on here. Might as well enjoy it.
