I’ve said it before and I will say it again. Though Skinwalker Ranch is itself located in Utah, the History Channel show THE SECRET OF SKINWALKER RANCH provides the best—and most accurate, representation of the State of Alabama, and people from Alabama, on television. Dr. Travis Taylor, arguably the show’s “lead”, is from Alabama. (He and I actually grew up not far from each other and attended the same high school.) And Dr. Taylor, over the course of the show’s first (and hopefully not only) season, has brought in some of his colleagues, also from Alabama, to assist in conducting experiments. This linked article is dedicated to those people. Super scary smart people, cultured, erudite, not in any way (outside of the accents) resembling the stereotype of the average Alabamian.
Also, I can attest personally that these folks are for real. There are those who say that the show is fake. They’re wrong. It’s constructed so as to maximize dramatic potential, sure. In that sense it is “Hollywood-ised.” Parts of it are likely staged. But the phenomenon experienced at the Ranch, filmed for the show, is real. Absolutely for real. And these are SCIENTISTS making such claims. Let the hardcore skeptics try to dismiss their experiences. It won’t be so easy this time.
Look at some of what those scientists had to say about their time spent at the Ranch: “I had something occur with a sensor that has never happened before or since. So that was strange, and has yet to be explained. I’m an engineer: if I can’t measure it, if I can’t see it, then prove it to me. But something happened out there that’s never happened before…” “We had like two things happen…One of them happened multiple times. But yeah, there was some weird stuff, and I can’t explain it.” “In some cases…the ranch affected the camera equipment and caused them to fail…I know that’s hard to believe, but it happens all the time out there for no reason we’ve been able to find yet…that balloon…As far as we can tell, it just disappeared!” “Something happened that bothered me…Because of all the mishaps and the anomaly that occurred, I’m insanely curious how they are going to put it all together.” “Ours [the experience] wasn’t reading-based, it was like stuff we visually saw that I couldn’t explain…I don’t know if one of them was captured on film. It happened really quickly.”
