I should not have to remind people of the hundreds of thousands of ufo sightings across the world in the past 60 years. Across the world
should I repeat? Many of those sightings come from people of sound mind, pilots, military men, professionals, and so on. Even if 1% of them saw
something of truly extraterrestrial origins, that's nonetheless noteworthy and cause for concern. It's so easy for us in 2011 to erase anything that
happened before 2000 or 1990 because the years tend to do that to us both as individuals and as a society. We cannot let the dust of time cover the
past in such a meager and dopy fashion. Fight it! Search the archives. Remember. Only by remembering can we have an impression of the big picture and
without that we're left with only a narrow portion.
With enough garbage thrown in it and enough back and forth a ufo case eventually dies whether it started from genuine origins or not. Of the FEW ufo
cases that garner serious attention, they too are drowned in the 99% of bunk that passes for facts in ufology and the back and forth BS that clouds
peoples minds as well. Ufology and the debunkers that fire shots at it are like a messy tornado. Try as you might it's impossible to get anything
productive done with all of the sh** going on and the spin. Some work might get done but it's painfully slow.
I've always felt that if 1% of the cases or less are true that it will never get out, especially if the UFOs themselves do not want to be known. This
is because it's human nature to bury minorities or things that have attracted ridicule. I agree with a quote I saw somewhere on this site. They only
need to cover up small lies. The big ones are covered up because of simple human incredulity. I have no doubt that if the so called secret government
wanted to misinform the public or distort the truth or something of that nature that they certainly could. However, I do not believe it would be
enough. Something more is needed. Indeed, I believe the incredulity is enough by itself. With a government agenda to misinform and mislead, it would
just be added assurance that the issue will stay dead.
Not all ridicule and doubt is earned or deserved. Unfortunately, a lot of us forget that somehow.
It's true that the best UFO cases offer no proof. Therefore we cannot come to a conclusion about them. They do bring up question, though. They should
make a person think. Yet, there's no proof. However, it doesn't lend us the right to ridicule and insult the journey of those who seek to learn and
uncover truths. It's human nature to make mistakes and sure enough those who search will stumble. It's only the venomous sort of human behavior that
will make advantage of this stumble to taunt and exploit this person for their faults. It's indulgent and hints at a deeper truth: humans are biased
in favor of majority viewpoints and safe viewpoints, whether they're scientists or not.
Ever so often one has to break from the flock and risk their career. It's the nature of things.
No guarantees in this life. Nothing is free. Most of us won't receive the credit we deserve either.
But go forth we must. Like the wind, like the ants that build colonies, like the spinning planet.
