Nice link. Good to see Felix Zeigler in there. I remember reading his 'secret' report and finding some cases intriguing. Then he went on a
mathematical tear-up and attributed speeds and power sources with a certainty that belied the anecdotal reports. His explanations and assertions
exceeded the data - he overreached.
When it made its conclusions in 1990, the official results of The Network's 13-year inquiry into UFOs concluded that there was no substantive
evidence of alien visitation. Just 300 of the 3,000 or so cases they investigated from 1978 to 1990 were considered legitimately anomalous.
'No substantive evidence of alien visitation' pretty much reflects the findings of every UFO sightings project I can think of. Likewise, the
'legitimately anomalous' outliers appear in all the studies I know of.
The thing that matters is that someone, somewhere took the time to record the reports and look for explanations. You and I will disagree about the
value of the 'legitimately anomalous' and that's cool, right?
In the same way Ziegler put me off by overreaching, the writer of the article put me off with the 'little green men' title and referencing 'true
believers.' It's been years since I saw someone use 'little green men' and we both know what's meant by 'true believers.'
Whatever, it's good to see you referenced in there. You're a polarising guy, I disagree with you sometimes and value what you do.
