I blame it on the sci-fi pop culture that has permeated western society in the last decades. There's so many movies, books, tv series, adds,
magazines, songs, clips portraying sci-fi themes that many are proclive to explain the UFO phenomenom through the extraterrestrial theory
In this forum, you will find that most people have alredy made up their mind, and blame every single light, hill, insect, cloud or raindrop to aliens.
Many of them are just eager to hear a good story. Others are willing to believe any tale about aliens.
As far as myself, this forum is making me a skeptic. I was 100% believer before finding it, having read several books about the subject in the last 20
years, and I've been always fascinated by it.
Now, seeing how gullible is common people, and how many hoaxes float around, I take everything with a grain of salt. I'm only sure of one thing: some
aerial UFO's are impossible to explain and some of them have portrayed intelligent behaviour (as reported by pilots). Origin? No idea.
