When modern science can't explain something it's quietly swept under the rug as to not 'rock the boat' with regard to 'established theory' and
history, and it requires major guts to put the ego aside and go against the established grain and try to find the truth.
Oh please! It's not the duty of science or scientists to offer immediate explanations for new or undiscovered or not-yet-understood phenomena. When
there's a "gap" in our knowledge, we don't scramble around like mice looking for the most convenient explanation, it is researched
evidence is gathered, papers are written, experiments are carried out and repeated, etc. The process is quite obviously not instantaneous.
And not rocking the boat? How many examples can one cite of true boat rocking in science? Let's start with everyone's favorite, the Heliocentric
Theory, how about Evolution, and more recently Einsteinian Physics (quantum)? These are all examples of revolutions of thought in science, and
that's just the last few hundred years. Now think of religion which remains largely stagnant for millenia, and you can see that science actually
does work quite fast, only compared to our short lifetimes it may not seem like it.
What's the best physical evidence so far for UFOs? Maybe the burn marks, etc, where something physical is left behind. Cave paintings are evidence
that early man drew cave paintings, that's about it, but they're so simple that you can see just about anything you want in them. Anyway, so what
can a scientist say about some radioactive burn markings on the ground? They are not self-evidently created by aliens, in fact they prove almost
nothing, it's the story
that inevitably is told about the markings that makes it "special", right? And again, a story is not evidence.
Farmer Joe can tell me all day long that the mark in his field was made by the UFO he saw last night, but looking at the evidence itself, one is not
compelled to conclude that it was made by anything extraterrestrial, let alone all the conspiracy theories, alien politics, and other space drama that
tends to follow (which again, there is no real evidence for).
So I ask again, do you really
want actual scientists to take this seriously? Because under scientific scrutiny, even with some fancy burn
markings, it doesn't follow that alien visitation is thus proven.
