While I love reading the case histories of the most credible reports (military, police, multiple witnesses) and feel those alone are reason enough for a general belief in visitation I have to agree, even as an investigator.
The time of just gathering verbal reports and investigating them with no evidence is done.
The US, UK and certain major governments still withhold evidence and refuse to acknowledge it, even though other major governments have released files and taken public positions that it has and is happening.
Most of the videos we see are either CGI hoaxes, mis-identifications or too shaky / low quality to do much with.
If we really want to solve this issue, once and for all, we're going to have to do it ourselves as a crowd-sourced, open source project.
I'd like to start an Internet connected, public observatory that uses sky cameras (HD) and telescopes hosted by people all over the World to gather evidence. I even had kick starter approval to post it for funding but delayed doing so when I got into discussions with several groups in the field who wanted to participate. Those went nowhere so I'm trying to decide if I should just go for it or not.
Peter Davenport wants to build a public "radar" system that would be able to detect and gather data on objects over the Earth and into deep space. He's working on trying to fund the project but I'm afraid he lacks the ability to do so using modern internet and social media tools.
IMO, these types of projects where the public can gather it's own scientific data is the only way forward. Short of a mass contact event or disclosure the status quo of report gathering is getting us no where.edit on 17-5-2012 by ecoparity because: (no reason given)
