You don't understand the problem.
No, you are the one who does not understand the problem.
As an example: when a military radar recon aircraft pilot plus superior on board has radar contact in his cockpit and gets 3000pmh-0-9000pmh+directional changes+sees the craft, with non standard but excessive amounts of strive lights and no noise or sonic boom, with his own eyes+ gets a second pilot+ 2 copilots to visually confirm the crafts maneuvers+ second radar to confirm the object movement and speed. Then I think we can pretty much conclude that they have seen a proper extraterrestrial UFO.
Why extraterrestrial? All they have is contact with something they cannot identify. It is your bias that interprets it as extraterrestrial.
No, you don't understand the problem. If skilled limits familiar with all man made crafts and all man made strobe lights patterns, and the max speed limits, stopping/banking/etc of those crafts say that " it was not man made, then I will believe them. I'm not going to believe a skeptic arm chair debunker which laughs at the politia eyesight and throws around " anal probing" jokes.
Another example is when one of the top, maybe to 3-5 , scientists in the Western world, a guy working at the cutting edge of military warfare in collaboration with to secret projects and having top secret clearance says he saw objects which were not of this planet, then those objects are not of this planet.
Can you provide an example of this happening, or is it merely a hypothetical?
This happened. The guy's dead, major scientist, mile long CV.
It's time to accept that there are witnesses of such high calibre and qualification that you can't dismiss them. You just can't. Like if a guy says in the 50s that nobody has a craft pulling 300g , changing direction, then 300g on a different plane within seconds, and he's the go to guy when it comes to aerodynamics, then his words is solid gold.
Again, this is your fantasy, not an actual incident. If an observer is objective, all they can do isreport what they believe they saw, not interpret it.
“All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.” – Max Planck
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla
“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” – Nikola Tesla
“The atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.” – Werner Heisenberg
“We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense … there is no place in this new kind of physics for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality.” – Albert Einstein
“The field is the sole governing agency of the particle.” – Albert Einstein
“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” – Niels Bohr
Luck happens too, but luck isn't real either. It is just a way for us to explain the abnormal. You flip a penny 10 times and you call it correct every time, luck or normal process of percentages. BTW abnormal is normal just normal in small amounts.
I agree to a point, but it still doesn't make science mysticism, just science. A match stick was mysticism at one time, so are you suggesting that UFOs are still in the mysticism stage, also remember just because science may look like mysticism, most mysticism will never be science.
Trace evidence that can not be found or checked in anyway. Once again we take only the words of humans to explain that aliens are real. What evidence is there that the "secret Government" hasn't taken or destroyed. 1938 was rather different than 2016, I would think we are ready, and you fail to put the whole world in play and assume it just the USA with the secret. The whole world can not get along but the whole world can keep this a secret.
Can you not see that this is just another way to explain the lack of evidence out there.

Here, go look.. there are thousands of cases like this.
You guys are completely hopeless. First you ignore the testimony of legions of actual whistleblowers.. then you turn around and say "The whole world can not get along but the whole world can keep this a secret.".. It's actually mindblowing how conditioned you guys are. This is pure cognitive dissonance..

So the best evidence you have of aliens/UFOs is testimonials?
I can show you testimonials of Santa, reptilians, unicorns, nazi bases on the moon and a whole load of other things.
Testimonials don't make something true. It just means that people are saying its true.
In summary, the abduction phenomenon is of considerable clinical and scientific interest. No convincing explanation of the experiences abductees report is currently evident. We may learn from further research a great deal about the nature of the human psyche and expand our notions of psychological and physical reality. The phenomenon may deliver to us a kind of fourth blow to our collective egoism, following those of Copernicus, Darwin and Freud. For we may be led to realize that not only are we not physically at the center of the universe, transcending other life forms and rational masters of our psyches - we are not even the preeminent or dominant intelligence in the cosmos, in control of our psychological and physical existences. It appears that we can be "invaded" or taken over, if not literally by other creatures, then by some other form of being or consciousness that seems able to do with us what it will for a purpose we cannot yet fathom.

A complete science would place astral planes, parallel dimensions, synchronicities, consciousness, etheric fields, telepathy, vital energies, emotional energies, volition, hyperdimensional existence and timeloops all under the same framework. At present, these appear to be phenomena distinct from science, but that is because science as we know it is incomplete. It is not that these phenomena can be explained in terms of present science as reductionists and debunkers enjoy doing, but rather that present science must expand to accommodate these phenomena in terms of higher physical and metaphysical principles.

How can you respond to a post where I speak of thousands of cases with trace evidence and then accuse me of only talking of testimony?
How willfully ignorant is that of you? Is this type of thought process endemic when dealing with 'you people'? Xtrozero also completely ignored everything I spoke of except the personal testimony. Is it dishonesty, ignorance or are you literally blind?
Here you go:
This summary is based on only a partial listing of the catalogue as many of Phillips' cases appear extremely dubious in nature. Cases from the early 1950s are particularly unreliable because many of the early UFO books were written by people who automatically assumed that they were describing encounters with alien spaceships. Jenny Randles tells me that cases reported in the "hysterical" Spanish and South American media should be treated even more skeptically because these cases were often complete fabrications! Furthermore many of the early cases have no proper source, e.g. Phillips quotes Vallee describing cases which appear to have been anecdotally reported to Vallee. This means that we often have no idea whether or not a specific case was investigated by anyone, let alone whether it was a contemporary investigation or whether the investigator was in any sense someone capable of undertaking an objective scientific evaluation.
In addition to these problems we have a major definitional problem concerning cases which feature circular ground traces because of the current confusion which exists over the authenticity of the archetypal crop circle. Doug and Dave claimed to have actually created the phenomenon of a sharply-defined swirled circle, but they apparently based their hoax on the Tully reeds circles, which themselves were sharply-defined swirled circles. Given this regrettable fact, what do we include in our definition of a crop circle? Do we include roughly circular shapes of depressed but not swirled circles or do we stick to sharp-edged circles? How about burned circles or circles where the crop has been denuded or completely removed? Given these problems its probably wise to merely highlight all cases involving circular traces but not assume that they are necessarily caused by the same causal mechanism. It is quite possible that there may be several natural circle-forming mechanisms which all create different types of circular ground trace. One of these mechanisms could still be Meaden's postulated plasma-vortex but it is wise not to assume that any particular category of circular ground trace must be caused by the postulated plasma vortex. In any event we will be trying to track down case material referred to by Phillips and will report back in a future issue.
KINDS OF PHYSICAL EVIDENCE After some sightings, indications of the presence of something most unusual have been found.
1. PHYSICAL traces. Compressed and dehydrated vegetation, broken tree branches, and imprints in the ground have all been reported. Sometimes a soil sample taken from an area where a UFO had been close to the ground will be determined by laboratory analysis to have undergone heating or other changes not present in the control sample. CUFOS has a computer file of over 5600 such cases.
2. Vehicle interference cases. Sometimes referred to as E-M (Electro-Magnetic) cases, the UFO appears to cause a number of effects on automobile ignition systems. CUFOS has a computer catalog of over 500 such cases.
3. Physiological effects. Medical verification of burns, eye inflammation or temporary blindness, or other physiological effects attributed to encounters with UFOs, even healings of previous conditions, can also constitute evidence, especially when no other obvious cause for the effect can be found by the medical examiner.
4. Radarscope photos. A series of photographs of a radar screen on which a "blip" of a UFO appears is a powerful adjunct to a visual sighting because it provides quantitative evidence of the UFO's motions and velocity.

Perhaps this is more to your liking:
I'm sure the hysteria of these lunatics just conjured this radioactivity out of thin air.. yes, that's a great explanation. Let's go with that.

The Bob White appears to have been explained.
2012 bump. Has there been any update on the Bob White object?
I reluctantly offer....
