One thing that makes me very angry about being interested in UFO and figuring out if there is other intelligent life in the universe , is the amount
of crap one has to wade through, and take note of in order to be taken seriously by others in the field. We all have our interests in specific feilds
it seems, although my interest is general and hobbyist, rather than concentrated and obsessive. In any case, we all contribute to the pool of
information when ever we see a subject that we can offer into positively. My attitude toward the goals of our cooperation on this matter is that if we
keep our focus on science, proofs, hard court worthy evidence, then we might get someplace.
However there is a thorn in my balloon, a fly in my mayo in this regard. That would be the psuedo religious BS which has sprung up surrounding UFO ,
aliens and so forth. I am sick to the back teeth of these swindlers, nuts , and idiots fooling other nuts and idiots in to ignoring scientific proof,
in favour of some faith like assurance. Its not bloody well good enough, and in my opinion the people who get caught up in it, hell even the people
who give the ideas expressed by these stunted directionless twits a moments thought need a serious look at thier priorities. If droves of our number
fly off to lala land with these galactic gurus and thier baseless nonsense, then our chances of actualy PROOVING the identity of even ONE UFO are
pretty damned slim, and grow slimmer for every mind we loose to the space hippies.
Now I know some of you may take offense at what Im saying here, and others may suggest that I havent read enough, or paid attention to what has been
said, or even that I have a closed mind. These arguments are invalid. I have payed attention, I have read , and my mind is as open as it can be,
without pouring out through my nose. One does not have to have a closed mind to believe that the only way to PROOVE something , is to collect physical
evidence of it, document the find, photograph your findings and show your investigative work.Then you have others examine it, and follow the black and
white absolute of science to an answer. What you dont do , when your aim is to deny ignorance, is to base your only beliefs, your only involvement in
that process on some false prophet , and his insane ramblings.
This total hogwash is exactly the sort of prattle I am talking about. It is totaly backward to insist that these unfounded cultist mouthpieces get
ANY attention from a supposedly legitimate and scientificaly minded bunch of conspiracists. You see , I dont veiw conspiracists as tin foil hat
wearing nutbars, I know that many are refined in thier intelligence and thier ability to apply information to the real world, and that is I think the
source of my fustration with the inclusion of these totaly spurious stories and prophets in our collective datapool. It complicates an already deeply
difficult subject, and steals minds through the application of subtle psychological manipulation, away from truth , and toward madness.
