A revelation like this is the same as any other UFO/ET related one. Nothing really new was gleaned nor was any further proof offered.
With this subject, you unfortunately need a real physical ET to go any farther with it.
I read this thread when it had just a few replies, and I didn't find it very interesting. I didn't imagine it would garner 550 replies, so I don't
know why it's got the attention it has either. So I agree with you on that point.
However I disagree with you that the only thing that will take the subject further is real physical proof of an ET. Well I agree that would take the
subject further, but it's not the ONLY thing that would.
For example, in this case, when he refers to the documents he has seen, what's not going to advance Ufology is to make such vague references to such
documents, he doesn't even say what they are!
More information about the documents like what they are called, or better yet, copies of the documents themselves MIGHT help advance UFOlogy.
But he provides none of that. So that's why it doesn't advance the cause, he can't even provide any evidence for the claims he's making, or worse
yet, not even any specifics about the nature of that evidence.
Given the lack of specifics about what documents he saw, I'm not sure his video even rises to the level of hearsay evidence.
I'll give you an example of why we need specifics:
I could make a similar video saying I've seen official documents saying the UFO threat is a fact. In fact here's an exact quote from the document:
"The UFO Threat- A FACT".
Now I know some other people who are aware of and have seen this document think it proves the existence of ETs or at least UFOs. But now let me reveal
why vague references to such a document are worthless. Let's look at what the document really says:
CHAPTER 13: ENEMY ATTACK AND UFO POTENTIAL
THE UFO THREAT--A FACT
In this chapter we will now turn our attention to the very real
threat posed by Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), whether they exist
Based on my vague description, I tried to convince you the document treats UFOs as fact. It's not until you actually read the document that you find
out it questions whether UFOs even exist or not and it uses the example of the Orson Welles broadcast to show that UFOs can be a threat even if they
don't exist, by causing panic. So the document is hardly the smoking gun I can portray it to be in a video if I don't give you any specifics about
