While we may not have proof that UFOs are extraterrestrial, we do have evidence that UFOs exist and that they are under intelligent control. Some
would agree with this statement, but this thread is addressed primarily to those who do not. What I'm looking for are some alternative explanations
for reports such as the Trans-en-Provence report
, in which an unusual object apparently maneuvering
under intelligent control is witnessed in daylight at a distance close enough to eliminate the likelihood of misidentification.
We are looking for explanations for the existence of the report itself, not for explanations of what the object might have been. My explanation for
this report, and others like it, is that the event actually happened as described. The question here is whether or not these kind of events occur as
reported. The question of what the objects reported might represent is secondary until such time as we find ourselves on the same page regarding the
objective reality of the event itself. If we can satisfy ourselves that event did, in fact, occur, then we can begin to speculate about what the
thing was. But first thing's first. Do we have reason to doubt the reality of this kind of occurrence other than our personal confidence that
things like this cannot occur, and that therefore they don't? And if they do not occur, what explanation can we offer for the existence of the
Trans-en-Provence report and others like it? Must they all be elaborate hoaxes, or can we come up with alternate answers?
