Without question, UFOs exist. The circumstancial evidence demands that their reality be accepted. However, because accepting their reality runs
counter to the "normal" mental state of not accepting anything as real but an actual experience, then UFOlogy falls into different camps. The only
people that can speak with certainty are those who have had a solid daylight sighting where there was enough detail in the object(s) observed to
separate it/them from human constructed craft. We are familiar with airplanes, helicopters, dirigibles (blimps) and know that they have to follow
aerodynamic laws or they simply fall, hard! UFOs in all of their varied shapes do things we wish our aircraft could do and we're all familiar with
their extreme maneuvers.
But they are beside the point. What we have to deal with is the types of humans. We are believers and skeptics. A believer has been mentally
conditioned by various sources to not question but accept blindly. A skeptic has not been mentally conditioned and questions everything and won't
accept anything until suffienct evidence is presented. The normal state.
Believers, OTOH, do not have a questioning bone in their body and so they are subject to what they read or hear and accept it without challenging or
researching to see if what they've been told or read is real. People such as Stanton Friedman, and most of the authors of popular UFO/Alien books
depend on their gullibility to sell their books for if taken to task these thick books would become pamphlets.
So to cut to the chase, skeptics that see UFOs, such as me, are no longer UFO skeptics, they are experiencers; they know. They will continue to be
skeptics, however, for that is the normal mental state. A mind that is conditioned is not being used 100%.
Then we have the subject of aliens. I do not accept their reality because as I said above, irrefutable evidence has to be provided in order to go
from skeptic to experiencer or knower. Against the skeptics' acceptance of aliens come the believers. I do not think that there are any
experiencers or knowers in relation to aliens. All we have for aliens are tales, hearsay, wishful thinking. Additionally, not only is there no
evidence for their reality, but there is even zero evidence (nothing from nothing!) that they are ETs. No matter how much you argue that aliens are
real and that they may be ETs, if your life depended on it you couldn't provide one iota of evidence. You can express your beliefs but you know
where beliefs come from, right? No? How about mental conditioning?
What are the sources for mental conditioning for aliens? How about this, as just one example, that was seen and continues to be seen by millions?
Whitley didn't initiate the "grey alien" with the classical eyes and other features. But his books were everywhere and adults and children saw
them even if just out of the corner of their eyes on shelves, libraries, etc.
How about the aliens described in 1964 in THE OUTER LIMITS episode of "THE BELLERO SHIELD"
And before that, pulp magazines starting in the 1930s. Look up the covers. Abductions on almost every cover!
So, now that you know where you stand, do you want to continue being a believer in whatever comes down the pike, or whatever you read, or whatever
you're told? Or would you rather free yourself from mental baggage that's holding you back from appreciating the world as it really is and keep an
open mind until evidence comes in? Your choice.
