Questionable testimony?

This woman, Carlene Green, daughter of Roswell serviceman Homer Rowlette, impeached her testimony by saying her father called the Roswell bodies he saw as "the greys" because that was their color.

The grey sobriquet wasn't in vogue or part of the parlance in 1947 and her father using it on his deathbed to describe what he saw during the Roswell incident indicates he was influenced by the post-1978 Roswell dialogue of Stan Friedman and other Roswellian investigators.

Authentic memory reconstruction of significant events remain saddled, if not bolluxed by ex eventu input, by the language and milieu of the initial memory recall.

Current terminology used in a past memory recall is a sign of a neurological flaw or a deliberate fabrication. [See "automatic memory" in Psychiatric Dictionary, Fourth Edition, Hinsie/Campbell, Page 461]

Ms. Green either used "the greys" epithet on her own or her father used it after being "indocrinated" by the Roswell tales in situ after 1978.

Either way, the deathbed reconstruction is iffy at best or bogus in fact.

  • When did the term 'greys' first appear in the UFO literature, in connection with alien beings? It would have been during the 'abduction era' sometime, but exactly when?

    Does anyone know?

  • Sometime after the Hills event, but I'm not sure CDA

    Maybe someone will enlighten us.

    But is wasn't extant in 1947, that's certain.

  • Ok...i have change my opinion about the Roswell Slides after seeing it because ancient Mummys have no black eyes like the ET on the Roswell Slide.

  • Another nonissue. According to daughter Carlene Green and son Larry Rowlette, their father didn't tell them what happened or use the term "Grey" to describe the beings until the end of his life (1988). Any evidence he used the term well before then or when the term "Gray" became common?

    Larry Rowlette said his father first spoke to him in the late 1980s when he was already very ill. Carlene Green said he was literally on his deathbed (thus 1988) when he told her (while being loaded into an ambulance and dying almost immediately thereafter).

    The term "gray" had already entered the language to describe such aliens, though precisely when it became common I'm not sure. (Sort of like trying to run down common use of the term "little green men", which dates back to at least 1938 for describing aliens.) They were certainly depicted as grays well before Rowlette's 1988 death, e.g., in the widely seen 1977 "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." Whitley Strieber's "Communion" came out in 1987, which would be another way the term might be popularized.

    We can endlessly get into chicken and egg origin theories that lead nowhere. Did witnesses to such beings, such as the Hills, eventually lead to the term "Greys" being used to describe them, or did people adopt it to describe alleged encounters because of cultural influences? (Of course, psycho-social babblists will always opt for the latter explanation.)

    In the case of Homer Rowlette, either or both could be true. E.g., if he was a witness to such beings of classic "Grays" description, near the end of life he could have used the new culturally adopted term to succinctly describe them to his son and daughter. It would be more precise than other culturally popular terms like "Martian" or "little green men".

  • David:

    I gave you the psychological etiology for his use of the term, but you're an optometrist and don't get it.

    As if there's a difference; as if we could have objective knowledge of the subjects of witnesses' reports.

    Hynek and farm animals, remember?

    All we have are "UFO" REPORTS.
