I have no problem with people making money. I do have a problem with the huge fees some of these disclosure groups are charging, and then they
make people sign forms to not talk about anything. That is not disclosure to me, it is greed. Information of this type and importance needs to be
shared, not kept in a tight little group. Not only is that selfish of them, but is ultimately destructive and criminal to the world if they know how
to solve some of the major problems facing us today.
I tend to look past all the politics, simply because it is present in every organization in the world, even in holy organizations. To me only one
thing that maters - the evidence.
Science is used to prove the hypothesis. Why do they do the experiments to prove the hypothesis. While it is true Ufology is harder to prove,
science can put cameras on hot spots and check the physical evidence that is available. I agree we have some very good evidence that does start to add
up, but we need more to get the scientific community on board.
Nope, sorry science does not prove a hypothesis. This philosophy of science "proving" is known as verficationism or scientific positivsm. It is more
or less a dead philosophy today. You want to know why? That is because scientific hypothesis is always undergoing falsification. If something is
proven to be true, it cannot be falisified, but science is constantly being falisified. This is because science is uncovering new data all the time,
and new data forces previous models to either be adjusted ot rejected.
Ufology uses the same metholodgy of science. It makes an observation, it hypothesises and it tests the observation. It is no more or less scientific
than other scientific fields.
Science is there to help solve mysteries. UFOs are still a mystery as there are many different hypothesis out there as to what they are. If the
scientists get involved properly funded, they could then rule out or make a case for each hypothesis.
There are many different hypothesis in Science as well. Every observation can generate dozens of hypothesis. There is classical physics, relativity,
quantum mechanics, theoretical physics, string theory and many more. I think people make the mistake of treating science like some monolithic and
continious body with one methodology and one model. That is far from the truth.
Just as science explains things, likewise ufology explains things. If something is explained, it is no longer a mysyery. The idea that UFO's are a
mystery is a disinformation strategy using a fallacious double standard. It demands that ufology produces proof, holding it to a higher standard than
other scientific fields. It does this to keep UFO's firmly in the realm of the "mysterious" so it cannot interfere with the real world. This is why
the government allows open dialogue on it and even the occational whistle blower to come out. As long as people conflate "evidence" with "proof"
UFO's will remain a mystery until either they land enmass on the world or the government discloses it.
I am not falling for their disinformation strategy. I can independently determine the truth of UFO's without being handicapped by proof or dependence
on authority. The disclosure project people are especially commendable for their courage to actually come forward independent of the government. Why
the hell should we have to wait for the government to choose when it is right to let the children know?
