Organisers of the 17th annual UFO conference in Cornwall are asking people to open their minds Organised by the Cornwall UFO Research Group, the event on Saturday, October 12 will be held at Truro College.

Established in 1995 the Cornwall UFO Research Group (C.U.F.O.R.G) hosts the longest running annual conference on UFOs and associated phenomena in the South West The conference will feature four of the most prominent UFO authorities and speakers from around the globe. Discussing the latest topics in their field each will let the audience have their say with Q&A sessions on the speakers talks.

This year speakers include Jo Ann Richards, who claims her husband, Mark Richards, and his father, Ellis Loyd Richards, were involved with top-level military intelligence operations since World War II.  Adding : "Many of these operations included on-world and off-world contact and battles with various alien species."

Jo Ann Richards will discuss the "Exeter Interstellar Treaty Conference that occurred in June 1961", saying that similar conferences still take place. And that attendees can "learn about the non-human species in attendance and the treaty drafted. Enjoy the stories of the friendships that developed between a unique group of children – humans and non-humans – as reported by Capt Mark Richards. 

Keynote speaker Nigel Mortimer will talk about his UFO investigations for over 30years, since his own "close encounter" in Yorkshire in 1980.

Nigel was the founder of the independent UFO network (IUN) andsays he had a very close UFO encounter which "enabled him to establish psychic communication through channeling with a Celestial Being called Sharlek".

Since then, over the past thirty-three years, he has been guided along a life journey into the realms of the unknown.

Speaker Lucy Pringle, a founder member of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies and an international authority on the subject, will talk on physiological and psychological effects reported by people after visiting or being in the vicinity of a crop formation. 

Simon's Stidever talk will focus on the demise of Atlantis, and how the “blue-prints” of life were magnetically recorded onto Mica before they were lost to mankind into the great depths of the ocean. In this talk we will hear an "extraordinary story of an ordinary man from Exeter, initiated and appointed as a Guardian of the blue prints of life.

Organisers say with limited spaces for the event people need to book ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are priced £19.50 in advance or £22.50 on the door, with doors open from 9.00am to 6pm. first speaker 9.50am

A spokesman said: "With more UFO and paranormal activity taking place in Cornwall than anywhere else in the UK the 17th Annual CUFORG conference is set to be out of this world."

So I suppose you have spent your life personally gathering first hand evidence of all the information your obviously huge brain has accumulated?
There are countless recorded testimonies from military and government personnel and even astronauts. Now, if they are lying, then we really do have a problem.
Besides, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Not many people that do some serious research into this come away with a mindset like yours I can assure you.

To the writer of this article. The most you can muster when considering the potential for other intelligences in the universe is "Little Green Men"?

How original.

These people say they have met aliens...all we get is stories,every photograph we see is blurred,ever programme we watch is inconclusive,if these people are happy to tell stories at these events why don't they bring along one of these aliens.Then we will know once and for all.
Apparently there is no lack of evidence then if people have met or are in communication with them.(great money spinner I suspect )

Aliens and little green man are up there with the best of all made up stories, along with the fairy tail that a man once surfed a stone cross from Ireland to a Cornish beach and founded tin mining.
And if you believe that rubbish. You might us well believe in us and the whole world being created by a man who can see all and hear all, his son walked around doing miracles and magic tricks..

No, you show me that said people are lying or nuts. Prove they are lying. You can't. Accepted. not being able to disprove the whole subject does not therefore validate it.
Have you done any proper research? Rich Dolan, cold war and soviet historian, stumbled on released files, now you can't convince him of anything other than we are being lied to on an unprecedented scale. John E Mack, Pulitzer price winner for the biography of Lawrence of Arabia and noted Harvard psychologist, shook academia to the core. Why would hard physical proof be forthcoming any way. Imagine a culture/society/inte
llect far in advance of ours, would they be so careless as to announce themselves by leaving evidence of their observation forays lying around, especially given the effects on certain civilisations when exposed to a more technologically advanced one. It's desperately covered up by the PTB, but you want proof, who from, the government?

Besides, I am here, a normal, working guy, with the usual day to day trials and tribulations, educated to a modest level, fully qualified skilled engineer. Into music, sport, films. Live at home with my girlf, with a mortgage, love a beer in the garden after watering me toms and feeding the cats. Yet, I saw something years ago, long before drinking age, and when I see attitudes like yours, at first I laugh a little, because I feel lucky and privileged and can't believe how much you are barking up the wrong tree, but then I feel like I've been cursed, because to know what I know, yet to be ridiculed is pretty rubbish sometimes.

And.......?

What are you talking about?

Things is, yeah, there are loons and charlatans - the media won't ever dare get a well researched, eloquent and clearly convincing speaker on Newsnight, the media always show the clearly off kilter types. Give me a small budget and a production crew and I'll be able to find enough weirdos that follow football teams or show jumping to make it seem that all football fans and equestrian types are bonkers (some would argue they are any way).

I challenge you to do some proper research.

Like I said, if say example, a whole crew of nuclear weapons silo operatives are saying what they are, then they are clearly mad - as you put it- then don't you think there should be an enquiry into how such loons have their fingers on nukes launch buttons. And shouldn't politicians and prime ministers, soldiers, police officers, astronauts, airline pilots and air traffic controllers, royals, judges, doctors, scientists, clergy on and on, all be brought to task for lying whilst in public office or in some cases, for treason or tried for lying about the secret programs???????

Can't see it happening can you.

Stick to X-factor and sky sports mate, you are obviously well informed.

anyone who believes in the stories that are found in that book that can be found in any hotel room and anyone who has a faith based on stories should not belittle the people who believe in UFOs and Little green men. Faith is a very personal thing, if you don't belittle others faith or belief you will find others less likely to do the same to yours .

Faith is okay as long as it doesn't cause persecution and death to other people. There are a lot of dangerous, deluded nutters in the world who are willing to kill for a 'God' that quite obviously to me only exists in people's minds. At least the UFO believers seem harmless.

I personally do not belittle anyone's faith or beliefs in anything, and I certainly would not pass judgment on others beliefs, or be rude about them, I would not however, try to inflict my personal beliefs onto others in the hope of some sort of conversion, I also agree with molesworth that no faith or belief should be used as a reason for violence.
