Unless the government makes an official statement confirming the existence of ufos (as existing and not being secret technology), how can we get
convincing proof based on what is around today? I do not mean convincing to the ufo community, but to the general public (forget the polls and
statistics). After more than 50 years we still have no single ufo case which has gained official acceptance in the sense that ufos are acknowledged
as being real and here. For practically ever Ufo incident I look into on the internet, I will find pro and con arguments. They seem to be all
1) Photos and videos can be faked (the old photos with flying hubcaps, etc., double exposure, etc. the newer photos with photo shop technology,etc.).
In fact, I doubt we can "prove" that any photo shown is really not faked (at most we tend to believe the reliability of the person who took the
photo). Look at how the tables have been turned on the government and the Apollo moon landings have been questioned.
2) radar: all kinds of explanations abound on how other causes could be causing blips on the radar screen (i,e. today's Mexican military ufo video,
3) witnesses: many credible witnesses, but a real mass sighting with verification is needed.
4) physical traces of landings (not really conclusive IMHO)
4) abductions, mutiliations, etc. : IMHO exotic and no proven connection anyways
5) confusion added through hoaxes, conspiracy theories, con men and gullible persons
I do not believe any single one case today is an undisputed "smoking gun", but I personally see the sheer mass of photos, sightings, witnesses,
radar incidents around sensitive military installations, etc. as the "smoking gun". How can they all be faked, mistaken sightings, mass delusions,
natural phenomena (planet venus, ball lightning, birds, etc.)? But not everybody sees it this way... What are your opinions?
