ET go home…..let’s retire the extraterrestrial hypothesis, by Greg Bishop

The easy and insightful voice of extraordinary thinker and adventurer, Greg Bishop.

“Greg Bishop’s latest book, “It DEFIES LANGUAGE” is a unique compendium of this writer’s exceptional ability to stimulate original thought on many areas of the ‘weird’ and ‘fringe’ universe.

The reader will come away feeling both intellectually stimulated and refreshed – – not to mention reassured that their own passion to explore and ponder ‘unconventional’ stories or their personal experiences is soundly justified.

Flip it open to any chapter and revel in the range of material, the easy and insightful voice of this extraordinary thinker and adventurer!”

(QUOTING FROM HIS BOOK):

“The conclusion that the phenomenon known as UFOs is caused by aliens is premature and narrow.

Contrary to what you have been led to believe, there is no real reason to conclude that we are being visited by beings from other planets.

In spite of this, whole industries, organizations and egos are built on that assumption.
When the latest stories of lights in the sky are aired or written about, every single account reported in the media brings up the ubiquitous people from other planets.

That belief has kept us running in circles for decades.
It has become the only way to talk about the subject, with no more evidence than our ingrained expectations.
Something that should be leading us into new areas of exploration by its very strangeness is locked into a prison that we have built for it.

Speculation on the nature of UFOs and our ideas and interactions with the enigma are pregnant with possibilities, but the jokes and dogma try desperately to keep the monster at bay.
Perhaps it is time to jailbreak the UFOs.”

(UNQUOTE)

Additional comment from Greg Bishop:

“We interpret what we see based on our prejudices.  Assumptions about the origin of UFO phenomena and reports keeps it in a narrow area of speculation. ET is still a possibility, just not the only one.”

Rational Ufology – – psychosocial hypothesis over extraterrestrial hypothesis

ufo_2387810k

excellent article written by my colleague, the late Tomas Scolarici:

(QUOTE)

“The psychosocial hypothesis builds on the finding that most ufo reports have mundane explanations like celestial objects, airplane lights, balloons, and a host of other misperceived things seen in the sky which suggests the presence of an unusual emotional climate which distorts perceptions and the perceived significance and anomalousness of merely terrestrial stimuli.

In the more exotic situation where people claim direct contact with extraterrestrials, please CLICK AND READ THE FOLLOWING:
PSYCHOSOCIAL HYPOTHESIS

THE PSYCHOSOCIAL HYPOTHESIS “is particularly popular among UFO researchers in the United Kingdom, such as David Clarke, Hilary Evans, the editors of Magonia magazine, and many of the contributors to Fortean Times magazine. It is also popular in France since the publication in 1977 of a book written by Michel Monnerie “Et si les ovnis n’existaient pas?”(What if ufos do not exist?).

archive bols

Now, what about UFOs?

First of all, 95 % of UFO sightings are recognized as natural or manmade phenomena.
The 5 % are important only because of the UFO industry, ego-trips and fantasists.
To speak about flying objects is conjectural. In my view, UFOs are not flying and are not objects.
The UFO meme is strong enough for some people.
A meme is “an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.”
A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, videos, sounds, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate and respond to selective pressures.
I have no idea about whom or what is behind the phenomenon, but I am totally and absolutely convinced that the Extraterrestrial hypothesis is forged.

Until this very moment, there is no evidence of extraterrestrial intelligent life here or in any other place of the Universe.
There is a relatively big but totally contradictory mythology concerning Extraterrestrials, without any kind of evidential or rational value.
The presumed “extraterrestrial” messages are a sad mix of New Age, Pseudo-religion, self-help and very human ideas and prejudices.
Abductions are mostly planted pseudo-memories and fantasies or self delusions.

the-show-must-go-on-copia

After more than forty years of research in the field, writing and talking with many people of different ages, social positions and professions, this is a short synthesis of what I think about the UFO phenomenon.

For the Rational Ufologist, the UFO Phenomenon is an unsolved mystery, and because of this, Rational Ufology investigates the social, psychological and political impact of this phenomenon.
Paradoxically, that 5 % of Unidentified Flying Objects that remain unidentified has a secondary importance.

The priority is given to the hypothesis about the origin and behavior of the UFO phenomenon, and also to the rational and logical interpretation of the mythology and pseudo-sciences created by the different interpretations of the enigma.

Contactees, self-proclaimed experts, mystics and improvised prophets give different ideas and versions of the phenomenon, but Rational Ufology demands evidences.

The interpretation of the UFO Phenomenon by the irrational ufologists is confused, contradictory and fallacious. There is talk, but no facts, and in many cases, we find a dishonest manipulation of hypothesis and pseudo events given as facts.

The Rational Ufologist is eclectic, but is also pragmatic and realist. He recognizes that the culture industry perpetually cheats its consumers with promises. The promissory note with its plots and staging, is endlessly prolonged; the promise is illusory: all that actually confirms is that the real point will never be reached, that the diner must be satisfied with the menu.”

In the rhetoric of the Cosmic Gurus we see this phenomenon in action. Nonsense replaces the real world and balloons are transformed into big ET spacecrafts. Contactees give us New Age talk as Extraterrestrial messages, ex rock musicians become Aliens and lawyers time travelers.

However all this must be considered and analyzed in Ufology. We must recognize the distorted impact of the UFO phenomenon in our society.
WE should understand the UFO subculture as spectacle, as the promise of a bad defined solution. The whole manipulation of the disclosure activism is not directed towards a solution of the UFO enigma.

The important thing for these activists is to sell their statements and conspiratorial delusions.

The society of the spectacle is also the world of the simulacrum. The picture is more important than the real thing, and even worst, contactees, and self proclaimed UFO experts try to make us believe that their rhetoric is the real thing.
That is why they deny Science but instead give us fairy tales as facts and fictions as real events.

The forgotten American victims of the first atomic bomb blast……by Samuel Gilbert

07222015Tularosa400

(Listening to downwinders’ stories at a forum organized by the Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium…photo, courtesy of Tina Cordova and Sen. Tom Udall)

by Samuel Gilbert, VICE Media LLC — July 24, 2016
http://www.vice.com/read/the-forgotten-victims-of-the-first-atomic-bomb

(QUOTE)

July 16, 1945:

At 5:30 in the morning in the mountains of south central New Mexico, something shook Barbara Kent out of her top bunk bed. The 12-year-old girl crashed down on the floor of the Ruidoso, New Mexico cabin where she was attending summer camp.

“It was the biggest jolt you could imagine,” says Kent, recalling to VICE the moment — 71 years ago this past Saturday — that the first atomic bomb was detonated in the nearby White Sands desert.

“We were all sitting there on the floor wondering what [was] happening.”
Kent was one of 12 girls that had arrived days before to attend summer camp organized by their dance teacher Karma Deane. “[Ms. Deane] thought the water heater had exploded so we rushed outside. It was just after 5:30 and it should have been dark—but it was like the sun had been turned on,” says Kent, describing the light, brighter than a dozen suns, produced by the first successful test of a nuclear weapon.

1-jpg

Later that afternoon, the campers were inside the cabin when they noticed a delicate white powder falling outside the windows. “It was snowing in July,” Kent remembers from her home in California. There was excitement and confusion as the girls ran outside to play in the unexplainable weather. “We were catching it on our tongues like snowflakes. Scooping the ash and putting it all over our faces.”

71 years later, Kent — now 84 years old — has suffered multiple bouts of cancer and is the sole remaining survivor of the camp (10 of the 12 of died before they turned 40).

“This is no coincidence,” she says. Like many other Trinity Downwinders, Kent blames her health problems on the government, which did nothing to warn residents of the danger of the radiation exposure caused by Trinity. “It was so wrong of the government not to evacuate everyone when they knew this was going to happen. They never told us so we played in the thing that killed us.”

For many years, the cries for help of New Mexico Downwinders have gone unheard, while the impacts of the radiation on these communities are still largely unknown due to a lack of data or studies on the fallout.

According to a study on radiation releases since 1943 by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Los Alamos Historical Document Retrieval and Assessment (LAHDRA), “Too much remains undetermined about the exposures from the Trinity test to put the event in perspective as a source of public radiation expose or to defensibly address the extent to which people were harmed.” While conducting the study, the CDC and LAHDRA were given unprecedented access to previously classified and internal documents at Los Alamos National Labs.

“We were unknowing, unwilling, and uncompensated participants in the world’s largest lab test,” says Tina Cordova, founder of the Tularosa Downwinders, a consortium which has been fighting for both recognition and compensation for the dowinders in the Tularosa basin of New Mexico.

This year, the Downwinders began collecting health surveys (400 so far) on rates of cancer and other other diseases that plague Tularosa Basin communities. “The effects to us are clear,” she says, pointing out that everyone in her community has lost someone to diseases linked to radiation exposure.

According to health physicist Joseph Shonka, the impacts described by Cordova are likely in areas near the blast. “Trinity created more fallout than at other nuclear tests,” says Shonka, who headed up the aforementioned CDC LADHA study. “At the Nevada site the closest people were 150 miles away. Here you have people 15 miles away. There is no question the exposures were higher than in Nevada and Utah.”

“The people who lived in downwind of the Trinity blast were exposed to clouds of radiation that blew from the explosion,” New Mexico Senator Tom Udall states in an email; Udall is a longtime supporter of the New Mexico Downwinders. “Radioactive debris fell from the sky, killing cattle and poisoning food and water, and generations of residents have suffered from cancer and other illnesses.”

“From the beginning, the government has refused to take responsibility,” he continues. “We can’t undo the years of suffering, but we should make sure the victims receive similar recognition and compensation that other residents have received,” Udall’s referring to the compensation given to those effected by the Nevada Test site through the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) and denied to New Mexico Downwinders.

This past Saturday in Tularosa, community members fanned out behind the dugout of the local high-school base ball field to take part in the 7th annual Vigil commemorating the anniversary of the Trinity test. “This year, we have 700 Luminarias,” says Tina, motioning towards the small paper lanterns that dot the outfield—each light representing a Tularosa resident that has been lost to cancer.

“We have all been affected,” says Henry Herrera, sitting with his wife Gloria along the first base line, their chairs pointed toward center field and the direction of the blast he himself witnessed at age 11. “I remember I was helping my dad pore water in the radiator, holding the funnel. Just as we got done with it there was was a hell of a blast and the cloud went up.” The radioactive plume rose over 38,000 feet in just minutes.

Herrera’s father thought it was an explosion from the nearby white sands missile range; he himself recalls being mesmerized by the massive mushroom cloud. “I watched it outside for hours. It rose up and up to the east. The bottom half kept on going but the top half pushed back and landed right here.” When he saw the dust from the cloud approach the house, he ran inside to tell his mom. “I very well remember because my mom was so angry. She had just hung up our clothes on the line—you can imagine what they looked like.”

“People around here were dying right and left,” says Herrera, who has since lost countless friends and family to cancer, himself a survivor. “Nobody knew what was going on, they just died.”

The fallout around Trinity was, according to Shonka, potentially far worse then even Hiroshima and Nagasaki. “The cap is the nuclear bomb, and the stem is all the dirt that was swept up into it,” he explains, describing the iconic mushroom shape produced by a ground blast like the one at Trinity. “The bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki were detonated at 1900 and 1650 feet. Their stems never touched their caps, so there was never much fallout.
When you have a ground level blast like Trinity a large amount of dirt is sucked into the cloud and mixed with radioactive material. The temperatures are so hot that everything melts. As the cloud cools off, different things condense out at different temperatures. As they solidify again, they fall out.”

When asked about the incidences of cancer and other deceases related to radioactive expose, Shonka said, “If you ask me if there is high likelihood that there are health related issues from Trinity, I can say yes. As for why the Nevada Test downwinders have been given compensation and New Mexico hasn’t — that’s a question with a political answer.”

“If we were compensated, then the government would be admitting guilt” Gloria Herrera claims. “The would be admitting the fact that they bombed us first.” Her husband elaborates, “We are small. We are poor. We have no political power.”

For years, the voices of Trinity Downwinders were absent from political dialogue, newspaper coverage, or even public awareness. Archival research done by VICE at the Center for Southwest Research at the University of New Mexico, found numerous clipping from local papers, stretching back to the 50s, reflecting on the legacy of the Trinity Test. Yet until recently, there was no mention of the first victims of the Atomic Age.

This has begun to change.

In 2015 — some 70 years after the Trinity test — the National Cancer Institute began the first-ever official health study to quantitatively estimate the number of cancer cases in New Mexico (past and future) that may be related to the nuclear test. That same year, Senator Udall took the senate floor and made an impassioned speech in support of the amendments to add New Mexico Downwinders to the government’s Radiation Exposure Compensation Program (RECA).

Support has grown: Both US Senators and all 3 US house members from New Mexico are co-sponsors to the RECA amendments. But the measure has failed to advance in Congress for several years.
“Many people here have little faith in the federal government,” says Tina, noting the trepidation of NM Downwinders towards both the federally funded health study and the will of congress to included their claims.

“Many think we are just looking for compensation,” says Cordova, “Which we deserve. “But even more than anything we want the government to acknowledge what they did. We were the first sacrifice of the atomic age. That needs to recognized and corrected.”

In memory of a colleague, the late UFO researcher Tomas Scolarici

Tomas Scolarici

A colleague of mine, Tomas Scolarici, passed away on July 7, 2015

Tomas Scolarici worked as a Foreign Service Officer, US State Dept 1986 – 2006, mainly with Radio Marti as relating to Cuba.

“The mission of a U.S. diplomat in the Foreign Service is to promote peace, support prosperity, and protect American citizens while advancing the interests of the U.S. abroad.”

Tomas’s mission mainly involved advancing US interests abroad, which some UFO cult leaders viewed as being a CIA propaganda agent and a “Cabal” operative.

He continued his research into UFOs and aliens on a volunteer basis until his death….(background info provided by Elelel Lelele)

Tomas Scolarici had this to say in 2012:

(QUOTE)

“Having no evidences to prove what they say, EXO fantasists and self proclaimed contactees’ favorite weapon is the personal attack; the logical fallacy called Ad Hominem.

I am a US citizen born in Argentina and proud of my more than 20 years as a Radio Broadcaster in the Voice of America, Radio Marti Program.

My work was to give information to the people of Cuba, that information that was denied to the Cubans by a brutal dictatorship ruling the island for more than 50 years.

Mr. Alfred Webre should tell us what he means by “New World Order propaganda.”
Also, he must tell us how many of my programs he listened or read.

Webre also writes that I am a well known UFO debunker. This is not true. The UFO phenomenon not only exists, but has been with us from the beginning of history.

From my own perspective, after more than 40 years of research, the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis about the origin of the UFO Phenomenon is not the answer. There is absolutely no evidence supporting the ET Hypothesis.

Charlatanism, wishful thinking and plain nonsense will not give us the answer we look for.
UFO Mystery is much more complex than anything we can imagine.
The recognition of our ignorance will be the beginning of serious, scientific and rational research.

(UNQUOTE)

Here is my favorite writing from Tomas Scolarici:

Sunday, July 24, 2011

(QUOTE)

What rational ufologists can do.

Question: is it possible to talk about Rational Ufology?
The answer is YES.

Let us consider the following characteristics of the UFO phenomenon:
Since more than 90% of the sightings become identified flying objects, the remaining 10% of such sightings are a rare, infrequent occurrence.
After decades of research, it’s obvious for me, that there are not enough evidences to define the UFO as an extraterrestrial phenomenon. Extraterrestrial hypothesis, ETH, is just a theory but not a fact.

This ET meme wrongly suggests that the phenomenon must have an outcome, a finale: the contact between us and these hypothetical aliens.

However, UFO sightings are not a contemporary event but there are enough historical testimonies showing that there were always sightings, at least from the beginning of historical times.

This fact suggests that one of the characteristics of the UFO events is the lack of contact.
There never was and probably never will be any contact between us and the hypothetical ufonauts.

In other words contact is not one of the characteristics of the UFO phenomenon.
In fact the UFO mystery suggests the existence of a program, instead of the activities of biological entities.

In my perspective, the UFO phenomenon “behaves” as a computer program that, of course, we cannot understand. This program is doing his job, no matter what we believe or disbelieve.
False expectatives are negative and futile.

Now, if we consider the whole UFO phenomenon as a program, we cannot expect the fulfillment of our expectations, mostly products of science-fiction models.
Rational Ufology should remain aware of this rare phenomenon that cohabits with us in this planet Earth, and also analyze the sightings and the sociological and psychological impact of the UFO mystery in our human conscience.
That is why we are interested in fantasists, charlatans, neo-cultists and even borderline personalities.

This is what we can do, if we want to learn something about us and about the UFO Program.

Tomas Scolarici
(UNQUOTE)

Here is his last article which he wrote on July 7, 2015, the day of his death:

THE UFOLOGICAL CIRCUS:

Are these self proclaimed experts in Unidentified Flying Objects mad?
No, I don’t think so, at least when we talk about the Easy Money Ufologists.
Let me analyze the process of”insanity” in the career of self proclaimed experts in UFOs,
Extraterrestrials, conspiracy theories and similar tricks of the UFO Industry.

Let’s consider an intelligent individual who “discovers” the UFO myth, and in the beginning believes in the UFO-ET hypothesis. Now, some of these new ufologists not only believe in the Flying Saucers folklore but also think in the possibility of making some money with it.
So, after reading some books written for his/her predecessors in the ufological pseudo-science and do some google, they try their hand with a book, a blog or lectures about UFOs and related Memes.

After some time, the new professional ufologists learn that some things sell more than others, and this market law has nothing to do with truth.

When this happens the self proclaimed researchers realize that they are faced with a serious dilemma: To leave a subculture run by charlatans, crooks and maniacs, or engage in the despicable game.

Of course, if the neo-ufologists are sane, they have learned already that the whole UFO mythology is a great quackery. Just fiction sold as truth. Repeated unsubstantiated non-events, nonexistent sources, and total disrespect for those who want to believe.

They must choose to leave or remain in the “show”. The future decision is based on personal ethics … or lack of ethics.

If they remain in the ufological circus, perhaps they can make some easy money, but there are prices to pay. Cognitive dissonance is one of the consequences of this self-denial.
Someone should write about the sad personal stories of many who chose to remain in the company of charlatans and hoaxers.

by Norio Hayakawa, July 22, 2016:

Although there is not a single, solid, physical, tangible, irrefutable documentary evidence whatsoever that there is a physical U.S. operated underground base (much less a joint U.S./alien one at that) in Dulce, New Mexico, “something” still could be there.

There seems to be plenty of circumstantial evidences (including many reports and testimonies from many individuals in the local Jicarilla Apache community of Dulce, an area filled with deep-rooted cultural and spiritual beliefs) that some unknown “presence” is there in Dulce.

What that is, I do not know and I do not claim to know.

Dulce, New Mexico may not be about an alleged physical underground alien base.

It could be about the role of promulgated “beliefs”.

Could collective “beliefs” create another level of “reality” somewhere in time and space?

And could those “beliefs” be manipulated further by an unknown, dark force?

Is there an alternatereality” lurking and interacting with the human psyche behind the physical facade of Dulce and its surroundings?

UFO HIGHWAY, an intriguing, controversial book about Dulce, New Mexico written by Anthony F. Sanchez

321544_2567160381327_443845752_n

Where I stand on UFOs, Aliens and Conspiracies
and my take on Anthony Sanchez’s intriguing and highly controversial book, UFO HIGHWAY:

PLEASE SEE THIS SHORT INTRODUCTION:

There are two parts to this article. Please read both parts.

PART 1

As far as I am concerned, there has never been any single, solid, physical, tangible, irrefutable (publicly acknowledged) evidence whatsoever that we have ever been (or are being) visited by physical extraterrestrial entities in physical extraterrestrial spacecraft. (“physical”, based on our concept and understanding of the terminology)

This has been my bottom line for many, many years and I will continue to take this stand until the day such evidence is manifested beyond question.

However, this does not mean that the so-called UFO phenomenon does not exist.
In fact, it is my belief that this phenomenon has existed from time immemorial.
Unfortunately, I have seen no solid evidence that this phenomenon has anything to do with actual physical extraterrestrial visitations.

Despite having been involved in the so-called “UFO research” for more than 50 years (I began my involvement with this field since around 1961), I am the first to admit that I have found no answers when it comes to this puzzling phenomenon.

I am bascially in agreement with the statement recently issued by the WHITE HOUSE (on November 7, 2011), i.e., that the “U.S. government has no evidence that any intelligent life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engage any member of the human race…in addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye”.

I am also in agreement with the following statements issued by the WHITE HOUSE:
“Many scientists and mathematicians have looked with a statistical mindset at the question of whether life exists beyond Earth and have come to the conclusion that the odds are pretty high that somewhere among the trillions and trillions of stars in the universe thee is a planet other than ours that is home to life.
Many have also noted, however, that the odds of us making contact with any of them – especially any intelligent ones – are extremely small, given the distances involved.
But that’s all statistics and speculation.
The fact is we have no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth”.

PART 2

Having said all this and having my position clarified, I am still intrigued by the “beliefs” of a segment of the population when it comes to UFOs, Aliens and Conspiracies, i.e., that we have been (or are being) visited by physical extraterrestrial entities in physical extraterrestrial spacecraft and this is all covered up by the government.

This is the reason why, despite my skeptical stance, I try to be open-minded enough to welcome anyone to write a book on UFOs, Aliens and Conspiracies.

As I mentioned in the beginning, one such book that I am quite fascinated with is Anthony F. Sanchez’s intriguing and controversial book UFO HIGHWAY.
So much so that I offered to write a short FOREWORD to it, regardless of whether his “findings” and his alleged “source” are credible or not, or even whether they were all intentionally “concocted” by him as part of a hidden agenda.

Whatever the case may be, if there ever were such a thing as an “ultimate UFO book”, this would be it.

As I stated clearly in the FOREWORD, there is not a single, solid, physical, tangible, irrefutable documentary evidence whatsoever that there is a physical U.S. operated underground base (much less a joint U.S./alien one at that) in Dulce, New Mexico.

However, there seem to be (at least to me) plenty of circumstantial evidences (including many reports and testimonies from many individuals in the local Jicarilla Apache community of Dulce, an area filled with deep-rooted cultural and spiritual beliefs) that “something” is there in Dulce. What that “something” is, I do not know and I do not claim to know
.
Ultimately, at least to me, Anthony Sanchez’s intriguing book is not about UFOs, nor about aliens nor about an alien base. It is about the role of “belief“.

Could collective “beliefs” ever create another level of “reality” somewhere in time and space?

As I insinuated in the FOREWORD, could it be that there is a “highway” through which other “realities” could be interacting with the human psyche in certain locations?

Is there an alternate “reality” lurking and interacting with the human psyche behind the physical facade of Dulce and its surroundings?

Yes, this is all nothing but speculation.

We may never know.

I highly recommend UFO HIGHWAY because it is not only a great read but it is a psychological eyeopener and makes us want to ask questions, questions that could very well affect our understanding of what reality ultimately is.

In conjunction to this fascinating topic, I would like for you to read the following article:

My skeptical opinion about UFOs……by Tim Printy

Timscope

by Tim Printy:
http://www.astronomyufo.com/UFO/UFO.htm

(QUOTE)

“I think that it is much more likely that the reports of flying saucers are the result of the known irrational characteristics of terrestrial intelligence rather than the unknown rational efforts of extraterrestrial intelligence.” – – Dr. Richard Feynman

UFO stands for Unidentified Flying Object.

Note the word UNIDENTIFIED.

The individual making the report affixes the label of Unidentified to the object.

My opinion on UFOs is that they do exist as UNIDENTIFIED OBJECTS in the mind of the observer.

In a great many cases they turn out to be normal objects/astronomical events seen under unusual situations by excited observers.
In other cases, they are vivid imaginations or simple hoaxes.
Even the most hardened UFOlogist (one who studies the phenomena), who believes that there is something behind these reports, will admit that at least nine out of ten cases are misperceptions and hoaxes.

The values usually turn out to be more like 3-10% of the reports remaining unexplained. With such a small percentage of remaining cases, one has to wonder exactly what reports are actual observations of objects that are something beyond what we know about the world today.

For most UFOlogists, this means that the most likely source is spaceships from another world. This is a bold statement based on reports that are suspect with misidentification. This hypothesis, called the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH), is based on eliminating all possibilities for the source of the report. It is not based on any practical evidence that can be presented.

With over 30 years of amateur astronomy experience, I have yet to see anything I could not explain. I would love to see a genuine alien spaceship but have yet to see one. I have put in more observing time than most people who claim to have seen at least one genuine spacecraft! Am I not a good observer?

Do I miss UFOs because they don’t want to come near my location? Is it possible that I don’t see UFOs because I do not believe in them? I doubt these possibilities. Perhaps the more likely answer is that I do not see UFOs because they are nothing but misperceptions and misidentifications by inexperienced/excited observers. They could also be observations of rare phenomena not known to the observer. Clearly, there are many possible explanations and the least likely is that of little green men in spaceships.

However, there is a significant amount of the population who seriously believe that UFOs are actually alien spaceships. Why do they believe this? Probably because they are not very well informed, are selective on what they want to read/hear, or possess a strong desire to believe in something exotic/greater than themselves.

The media tends to sensationalize many events and rarely examines a story beyond the minimum required. They add fuel to the fire in order to keep the viewer/reader interested. After all, the headline “Man Bites Dog” sells a lot more newspapers/captures more viewers than the mundane report.

Despite over fifty years of “research”, UFO organizations have yet to provide us with any significant data that can backup the claim that UFOs are caused by aliens piloting spaceships. Many of their “investigations” are often suspect and tell only one portion of the story.

These investigators will omit/ignore facts that indicate the source of the report was something more mundane. While the gullible media and public swallow “The saucers are coming” headline, it always seems like there is a more reasonable explanation.

This web page (http://www.astronomyufo.com/UFO/UFO.htm) provides links to some of my opinions on UFOs and UFOlogy as well as some landmark UFO cases that I have examined. My desire is to provide information and a point of view that is often ignored or omitted at most UFO web sites. Feel free to contact me with any information or feedback you desire via email at tprinty@comcast.net:
