Has anyone here ever read anything about UFO's? If not, I recommend doing so. There are hundreds of really interesting and well-documented reports
out there from people who apparently seemed reliable to the investigators of these alleged sightings. None of these interesting cases involve a
distant, stationary pinpoint of light, which is what about 90 percent of online videos depict.
Unless the thing is seen close up enough to determine for sure that it is not a conventional object, or unless it is displaying unconventional
behavior that rules out airplanes, helicopters, wind-driven balloons and the like, it fails to be compelling as a UFO sighting.
I know it's easier to watch videos than it is to read and comprehend text, especially if you are not a reader, but seriously, if you haven't read
the UFO literature, you are missing out. There is so much more to this than what you can find on YouTube.
That being said, you have to spend a little bit of time browsing for videos on YouTube, because when real UFOs are caught on camera, that's where
they are likely to show up these days. I have to say, though, that I have been very disappointed with the scarcity of compelling UFO vids online. It
seems that with the glut of cameras nowadays, surely there would be more. But there's not. It makes me wonder.
Anyway, here's what to read if you can bring yourself to actually consume some words on paper rather than pictures on a screen:
The UFO Controversy in America - by David Jacobs
The UFO Experience - by J. Allen Hynek
The UFO Evidence - edited by Richard Hall and available online for FREE here: www.nicap.org...
Anatomy of a Phenomenon - by Jacques Vallee
There's a lot of crap out there on this subject, but these books are not that. Honestly, I have never found a video, documentary or visual media item
of any kind that is as compelling as the serious written literature is. Buy one of these books used on Amazon for cheap, turn off your computer, find
a comfy chair and read. If nothing else it's good exercise for your brain.
