Skinwalker Ranch: Is It For Real?

I made the mistake of joining a Skinwalker Ranch fan group on social media. Silly me, I’d thought to find some folks who were similarly fascinated by the location and were fans of the show. Nope. Nothing but a bunch of bitching know-it-all “experts” living in their mothers’ basements with Pamela Anderson posters from the 90s still taped to the walls above their beds. Who would have thought so many PhDs still lived with mom and have nothing better to do than proclaim their intellectual superiority on the Internet? These crème-de-la-crème of society are all unanimous in their appraisal that the History Channel series THE SECRET OF SKINWALKER RANCH is fake. Jerry Springer was real, dammit, but the History Channel series isn’t!

They don’t seem to understand—shocking, considering their magnified intellects—that, while yes, the series is just that, a television series, wherein hours and hours of material are edited down for weekly viewing, and of course the producers of the show would do everything possible to make it tantalizing, to edit it in such a way as to make viewers want to tune in the following week—just like with a scripted television program—the history of bizarre activity at Skinwalker Ranch long predates this show, and involves so many witnesses, credible witnesses, that any possibility of it all being a big bit of flimflam is microscopically small. Did the producers of the show travel back in time to the early 90s and start paying people off to claim experiencing paranormal phenomena in anticipation of there one day being a TV show about it?

Actually, given the high strangeness at the Ranch, this idea isn’t as preposterous as perhaps I had intended.

  1. What makes me have a big ??? is. In the light of what has been going on, animals being mutilated and radiation why these men do not wear proper clothing and the manager goes out to the Alpacas with a big stick. Is there something wrong with this picture? If the U.S. has buried radio active waste on that property and wanted to keep it quiet do you not think they would do their best to scare anyone off that went snooping? If in deed they believe that something sinister is going on like mutilation of animals there should be more than one person armed. If in fact the Indian band did put a curse on the property. That may explain the unseen things that have happened as they are pretty deep in the occult. In my opinion the Brother who flew the scientist in by chopper who prayed first has the answer depending how much knowledge he has on spiritual warfare.


  2. A Little late to this Pow wow (I’m Sioux indian…I Can most definitely say that) but The show is Undoubtedly FAKE ! Sure, I Do believe that maybe the place itself is creepy and Maybe some Highly spooky shit takes place there, but this show is banking off of a story. period. it’s Entertainment just like Ancient Aliens was and so forth.

  3. This show is difficult to watch it is so ridiculous. Most of the supernatural “happenings” are just flat out faked or easily explained. Another “reality show” that has nothing to do with reality

  4. As a fan of Dr Taylor I decided to give the show some credibility, and after season 1 I saw no reason to doubt it. However, as season 2 opened up I noticed something that completely destroys my belief in this show What did I observe? In season 1 a cow mysteriously dies and that cow is black in color, probably an Angus. In season 2 they purport that no predators have touched the carcass, and they show the carcass to an expert, however, the carcass that they show in season 2 is red in color, so it’s probably a Hereford cow. Not the same animal. What a shame, I was really starting to enjoy the show.

  5. I like the show, and I hope there is some reality to it. However, there are things shown that seem to be easily explained. Like when they launched the rocket and saw a white object in the sky after, then the white object suddenly flew off. It looked like the camera just moved away quickly, nothing more. Another example – the episode with the lasers made a big deal about seeing lights way out by the trees. Those lights looked like nothing more than a few flashlights. Someone could have easily been attracted to the laser show, and came by to take a look. Hardly UFO stuff.
