First off, ufology is not a science, never has been and never will be. The topic is basically forbidden to be discussed or taught in any meaningful
way by government, science or academia. The manner of control is peer pressure, and the simple lack of funding for any research into that specific
area. The powers that be have seen to it that the topic lacks credibility regardless of how many sightings are made of alien-looking craft or how
many people report being abducted, etc. Never has there been a public investigation of the phenomena with a genuine purpose by government or funded
by government. Couple the lack of (apparent) official interest and the lack of funding required for any serious investigation, and you have the
on-going situation of the main question still remaining unanswered.
However, TPTB have been working hard at coming to answer that main question from the more safe scientific end of the question. That is why there is
such a push to look for signs of life on other space bodies out there large and small while totally ignoring the direct data in front of our faces
every single day.
Any scientist that promotes the concept of UFOs being alien machines is putting himself out on a short limb with the saw already in his own hand. It
amounts to professional suicide to take up that stance. One they got that route, they must be prepared to forego any "legitimate" work with their
fellow scientific brethren.
Exactly how the system works is best understood by the work of Carl Sagan. As a new Ph.D teacher in astronomy, he was an avid UFO believer. As a
student,he even wrote to the Secretary of the US asking what was being done to investigate the phenomena. At some point he was turned to become an
ardent skeptic about UFOs in particular but not about being against life "out there" in the Universe. That switch seems to have happened when he
was chosen by Dr. Edward Condon to be a member of his infamous "Condon committee" setup by the air force to whitewash the whole UFO topic. Sagan
learned his lesson early. Whether he was dishonest with himself or with the public in his denial of UFOs but adamant proponent of ET life remains to
be seen. The final chapter about Sagan and UFOs has yet to be written.
