Just a quick share - if any of you have come across these guys:
Milton E Brener
They've both released books recently which should hopefully be heralded as a serious attempt to remove some of the barriers between MSM / established
academia - and UFOlogists (who often find themselves in a battle to be taken seriously by either institution).
I'm glad to see that the title of one of the books includes the tagline 'a UFO Primer for sceptics'. I thought it was quite a serious development,
taking the field of study in the right direction, and hope that some of the stigma is genuinely starting to fall away.
I am concerned that this thread should not appear to be an advert for the books (hence no links, search it out yourself if you're interested). In
fact, one of the authors even states on his site that he's not aiming the work at UFOlogist devotees (he maintains an 'academic pomposity')
So anyway, I see this as another sign that the veil is lifting, that the truth is outing, that people are more willing to put themselves (and their
academic/professional reputation) on the line, as a result of the groundwork laid by the brave souls who pioneered the disclosure efforts over the
past 50 years or so. If anything, it's sad that it's taken respected academia so long to even contemplate serious works in the field of UFOlogy.
I await the inevitable 'ad hominem' attacks against each author from our beloved ATS disinfo agents...
