What a great point you raise. How true! I, for one, cant mention "UFO" to anyone i know.
This is their response;
"I dont care"
" Really" ?
"Stop talking nonsense"
"We love you but you're nuts"
...and the best, from my mother
: " Yeah, yeah, ok...i dont want to hear it, if you talk about this i'll hang up"
Even my husband, who was a Marine and did time in a mental ward for having seen something he "shouldnt have" ( a UFO) and was sent there because he
insisted he saw it, would rather not talk about it
Of course, i would never approach a stranger and hit them with something to do with a UFO. "Here's my business card, oh, by the way, been abducted
Any way, due to all this, i hardly think this issue will ever be taken seriously. People live in denial, and the unknown is scary and taboo to them.
There is nothing up there, according to them. God put us here and we are here alone and thats that. REALLY? That would bring me to the next
question: How do you know?
Answer: I just know, that's all.
Narrow mindedness is everywhere- it outnumbers open mindness. It will never change, imo
BTW, i tune up my Tinfoil hat on a regular basis. I find Call-a-Geek to do a great job on them.
