The fact is lately there haven’t been any significant breakthroughs in ufology. In fact, there has never been any breakthrough in ufology’s
I would agree with what you say Will on any positive breakthroughs. Even some of the finest minds could never make a breakthrough.
The main problem is a good ufologist requires an educated knowledge of astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, astrophysics, astrobiology, geology,
electromagnetism, metallurgy, space flight, aerospace technologies, theology, ancient civilizations, occultism, cosmology, geopolitics, military
intelligence and many, many more subjects...Very few if any on the planet are schooled in such disciplines and your average ufologist isn't really in
many of those if any. There's also the problem of the popular big names need to keep pushing out content because they rely on this for an income. If
we ever do get real disclosure they'll all be out of jobs!
But I think, some strides have been made since the advent of the internet. Stories circulate around the world now within minutes. I still say that
stories like the Chelyabinsk meteor and the Norwegian Spiral would both be classic UFO cases had they occurred 30 years earlier than they did. But we
now know what they were because of better observation technology and no Iron Curtain concealing such things.
Technology also helped discredit certain feathered friends in their SERPO hoax back in the early 2000s. Yet the pop ufologists still see the
perpetrators and their feathered friends as the go to people for the truth!!!!
Don't forget that the Roswell slides were debunked because of de-blur technology too. Expect Linda Moulton How to bring them back in 5 years or so and
claim they were real!!!
What technology hasn't done is helped with better identification of UFOs. There are many HD sky cameras around the world. You can view many of them on
the web. Lots of astronomers use them. To date no one has found a decent picture of a UFO that I know about.
I don't deny people experience weird things they can't explain but I wish ufology would concentrate on worthwhile things instead of listening to a
bunch of tired old talking heads constantly recycling known hoaxes and cases that aren't going to be solved because of lack of data and the passage of
