One of the nation's (US) leading sponsors of UFO research and investigations, the Fund for UFO Research, has had a long-standing secret relationship with the CIA and the U.S. Intelligence community. Dr. Bruce Maccabee, an optics and laser specialist with the Naval Surface Weapons Laboratory near Washington, DC, one of the Fund's founders and members of the group's Executive Committee, has been
secretly meeting with CIA officials since 1979, briefing them about various UFO matters and investigators
It's also interesting to note that even UFOlogists admit that only about 10% of sightings are genuine unidentifiable craft rather than astronomical phenomena or known aircraft ect...
I won't say 'Sadly, wery little', since it's more a question of credibility than solid, physical proof. Sightings are just that, sighting. Something some or someone saw. I'll just go ahead and label myself under that category. I saw something that I know to be not of this earth. Now, what options are left? 1: It was a mirage. 2: It was true. Hey, what happened, I already lost 50% credibility? Oh, ok. Let's look at my social status. I have no job and have none for the past 5 years, -15%. I'm basically societys waste. I'm on social welfare and that's looked down on in wichever part of the world you chose. What else then.. well, let's look at the circumstances. Noone else saw what I saw even though there was people around, -10% (given it was dark and a faint sighting since it was half invisible I might've exaggerated the number a little). That leaves me with roughly 38% credibilty. Now, if I were a renouned doctor, scientist or just someone famous that percentage would shoot right up. But in the end it doesn't, and we're all labeled into the 'Single person sighting, could be mirage' folder.
So what is left for the believers to believe? What evidence is there, that I as a believer still hang on to and hails as evidence?
