I have seen it brought up on a couple threads but not fully explored and would like to see what others thought of this.
I think that a lot of the more dubious UFO claims are put out by the government to discredit real reshearch into the subject. Why have to cover up
single events when you can blanket the WHOLE idea with silliness.
I think it is a two pronged attack one on the stories and the other "prong" is starting wild stories that just give the entire group of UFO
believers a black eye.
This is why it is so important for us to look at each story with a skeptical eye and not blindly defend even the most outlandish tale as the truth. I
think that in doing so we harm the greater cause, which to me would be proving Aliens are real to begain with.
After it does not matter if all of the stories are true, only one has to be, and I think are energy would be better spent trying to find evidence to
back some of the more realistic stories.
Roswell comes to mind along with several others.
