Nick Redfern: FINAL EVENTS: George Adamski: The Occult Connection

Nick Redfern on the Collins Elite, subject of his book Final Events, and a connection between contactee George Adamski, Desmond Leslie, and Crowley...FINAL EVENTS: George Adamski: The Occult Connection. Leslie helped author Adamski's 1953 book Flying Saucers Have Landed. Redfern writes:
This was a story greatly expanded upon in a 1953 book entitled Flying Saucers Have Landed that Adamski wrote with an Irish aristocrat named Desmond Leslie.

It was this Adamski-Leslie connection that got the members of the Collins Elite all worked up and bent out of shape.

One of the former Collins Elite staffers told me that the group quickly became concerned by the working relationship that existed between Adamski and Leslie, and for one very stark and eye-opening reason: Desmond Leslie had a long and rich link to the world of the occult, including - in a roundabout way - Aleister Crowley himself.

I like what Nick has to say about paranormal, Fortean researchers and the development of theory. Redfern writes that he's often asked what evidence is there to support the Collins Elite demonic-UFO theory?
Well, as far as can be ascertained, they didn't find any evidence. Rather, they developed beliefs relative to such matters (which often happens in paranormal-themed situations when hard evidence fails to materialize and the researcher either becomes frustrated by the quest for the truth, or has an emotional need to gravitate to one idea or another - something which often results from weakness and insecurity, or an arrogant and ego-driven conclusion that one is right, despite being unable to prove it).
