The UFO Phenomenon

Dennis Hopper's UFO legacy

Paranormal researcher pays tribute to Dennis Hopper's contribution to the UFO phenomenon via a scene in Easy Rider.
The famous scence saw Hopper and Jack Nicholson's character sitting around a campfire discussing extraterrestrials. In the film Hopper had said "I saw a satellite, man. And it was going across the sky. And it flashed three times at me and zigzagged and whizzed off, man. And I saw it."
Dennis Hopper may have passed away, but along with his many film appearances, he has left an important legacy to UFO researchers. That's the belief of Vancouver-based paranormal researcher Jon Kelly, who says the script that Hopper and "Easy Rider" co-star Peter Fonda wrote for the 1969 counterculture classic helped introduce a lot of information about UFOs to a massive audience.

David Moye wrote: Still, Kelly admits that Nicholson wasn't a big enough star before "Easy Rider" to warrant such special treatment. "There are two possibilities," Kelly said. "Either he was a CIA plant -- a New World Order insider -- or he pieced together everything on his own without realizing it." Jack Nicholson doesn't have any writing credits on Easy Rider, so why would he need to be inducted into the CIA to deliver his lines? I guess anyone can write articles about anything without being held accountable for MAKING SENSE on AOLnews.

Now I know why the guys who come up with conspiracy theories are so creative. You don't have to smoke anything "hinky" to see conspiracies, all you have to do is read the news and think which is no given all. Doesn't that mean we're not created equal?
