1)Why do only very few people claim to see them if they are really flying in our atmosphere. Are the rest of the people blind or what?
You know stealth fighters exist, yet have you ever personally seen one flying overhead...??? I'm not sure if you consider hundreds of thousands to be
a "few people" but as this is the number of sightings, there are a lot to consider. In addition, these sightings aren't just by "Bubba out
fishin' for bass" either, but also include sightings by police officers, doctors, lawyers, commercial airline pilots, astronauts, and military
officers including generals. Even many ex-Presidents have sightings on file. Therefore, the assertion that "a few people" have seen them is not
2)Why is the mainstream media avoiding this subject in most cases especially the news reporters?
Prior to the closing of Blue Book, UFOs were treated seriously by the government, and thus likewise by the press. However, once the government decided
to close Blue Book and embark on establishing the subject as being held up for ridicule, the press again jumped on board. In addition to observation,
one can easily find documents and even former men involved (such as Ruppelt and Hynek) that easily show this new directive.
3)I have heard that ufo viewers get harrassed by Men in Black! Who are MIB and what agency do they work for?
Most MIB cases occurred in the earlier decades of the phenomenon. Recent MIB cases are almost non-existant. MIB's were commonly encountered (in the
US) primarily in the 40's through the 60's (and likewise in the UK in the 50's through 70's). Often, they reportedly claim to be affiliated with
the military and flash corresponding ID, but occassionally also claimed CIA, NSA, and any of the other various intel agencies. Once the public
ridicule factor was established, it's my personal belief that such tactics (fear and coersion) were no longer necessary or desired.
4)Why do most governments(including the USA) try so hard to keep ufo and alien encounters secret? Why are they afraid to inform the people?
Do they have evidence of a planned invasion and think it's futile for us to know ahead of time since we will perish anyway or is it that they are
using(reverse engineering) their technology and thus want to get an upper hand in relation to other countries?
That's an area of speculation, but put it this way... if YOU were in charge of protecting the populace from harm, and ET craft were invading your
airspace, nullifying your defenses, and abducting your citizens, all while you are powerless to stop it, would YOU want this to be public knowledge?
Just speculation of course, but there are many reasons for secrecy. For one thing, the sudden intro of ultra-high-tech devices could completely
unbalance world economies, and have disastrous economic effects. Imagine even the impact of a small, safe, nuclear engine. Such a device would
instantly kill the oil industry, putting millions out of work, and completely destroying the economy of some nations. Such tech would need to be
introduced slowly (a feat difficult to do when one hovers and lands in a parking lot routinely, if common knowledge).
I'd worry less about invasion though. If that was the goal, seems it would have been far easier in the past than currently. We'd have been taken
over by now if that was the aim.
Roswell, Shag Harbor, Varghina(Brazil)
Indeed, interesting cases. Lots of paper trail, lots of witnesses (and some credible ones). Certainly a lot more than just hype (though I have some
serious doubts on the Varghina case). With such cases (I'll also recommend looking into Rendlesham and the Hill Case), there is a lot of evidence
(not "proof") but a lot of evidence.
Another interesting story was from Bob Lazar
Another interesting case. Despite the detractors, it does seem clear that he did at one time work at the base (regardless of capacity), and was aware
of when test flights occurred, etc. of some kinds of strange VTOL craft, as seen by other witnesses. In addition, he somehow managed to get some kind
of government funding for his current company and does contract work for the defense department(in addition to private companies). I'm not saying I
believe Bob's story, but the case certainly has all of the earmarks of establishing an unwitting disinfo agent. Also, the further one gets into
studying Lazar, they find more questions than answers, and those questions lead even further down the rabbit hole.
Thats the problem with this subject...it's always vague and unprovable hearsay to the point where you dont know what or who to believe.
True, but one could say the above about many topics, even modern physics! It's the separation of the wheat from the chaff that many find so
interesting (or at least I do). I'll readily admit that over 90% of UFO cases turn out to be some other explanation or deliberate hoax. However, as
I've often said, it takes only ONE real case to then make alien visitation a FACT...and that's worth closer (and serious) study, in my opinion.
