much longer. The internet makes it impossible. too much free flow exchange of information and data.
The end is in sight for their denial and they know it. That is why the vatican came out and said its ok to believe in extra terrestrials.
The Internet allows many groups to work together in ways they never before could and do things that once took millions of dollars of equipment and
highly trained technicians to maintain the facilities. It is what we call in the military a "Force Multiplier."
However, it also works against such research efforts. I can take a few pictures, spend a few minutes in a pirated version of Photoshop that I taught
myself to use (possibly even using some 3d graphics using similarly obtained 3ds Max), and post pictures and/or videos of alleged aliens and their
Hoaxing exponentially damages the motives of UFO researchers and any attempts to obtain disclosed information. This is because it not only wastes
resources to determine it is a hoax - but it also gets overly-enthusiastic UFO enthusiasts to link to information that is hoaxed (which writes them
off as the village idiot), and adds to the percentage of reports that are hoaxed, which provides a convenient excuse for skeptics confronted with
information that cannot be written off by scientific explanation - "It's hoaxed... don't know how they did it, but it has to be hoaxed." It also
adds more credibility to claims that evidence is hoaxed and begins to establish flawed social dispositions towards UFO evidence.
Thus, I have to say that the Internet has done more to actually damage the reputation of UFO research than anything else. The only exception being
the media during the "good ol' days" back in the 50s and 60s when all sorts of ridiculous claims got aired about from people who wanted their five
minutes in the spotlight.
All the internet has done is move the debate down to something the common-man can really participate in across a wide demographic region. And not to
knock intelligence around here - I say this in general - but the general public is not known for being astoundingly intelligent. Thus free-flow of
ideas has gone to have several thousand ideas floating around about what is going on, and a lot of ideas gain support simply based on how comfortable
those ideas are. Ideas involving government quests for control over the public gain a lot of support because people are naturally rather paranoid of
governing bodies and skeptical of their intentions - thus the idea gains popularity simply because it's familiar and 'comfortable' - in a bit of an
So you end up with a lot of incoherent babble for Echelon to look over, and a bunch of intelligence analysts laughing at our bickering and advising
the Government to just sit back and let it all become an old and over-debated topic and die out.
Disclosure isn't coming like a snowball. We haven't shown any demonstrable characteristics of a society that could handle what is known, nor is
there any reason to let every country in the world know that ETs exist and what kind of technology they have. We would quickly find ourselves in a
relations race with various alien species, trying to get them to take our side over the Chinese.
Which is likely why most intelligent ETs would avoid disclosed contact with humans like the plague. It wouldn't benefit anyone involved.
