Real investigators like Jim Mars, Paola Harris, Tim Good, Jorge Martin, J.Allen Hyneck (Deceased), Sgt Clifford Stone, Nick Pope, Retired Police Officer Tony Dodd (Deceased), Graham Birdsall of UK UFO Mag (Deceased). For me after 25 years of researching the subject, these are the standouts for me!

Bill Birnes, and Erich Von Däniken are my two favorites. I think they both have very analytical minds and the ability to explain why they believe things. They have no problem with someone proving a theory wrong, they know that even a wrong theory can lead to a right answer.

I really like Bob Lazar despite his really bad reputation. At the very least he's entertaining. I'm not sure if he tells his story so fast because he is lieing, or if it's because he has told it so many times. Liars frequently back up statements with proof or intertwined stories to make it sound better. He does this often. I still like him though.

If Jacques Vallee is right (he is), then we need to look to comparative mythology to understand the UFO phenomenon. That means we need to look to Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell.

UFOs are a psychic / mystical phenomenon, not a nuts n' bolts technology / biology phenomenon. That means any expert who advocates the ET hypothesis is a tool.

And yet E.T's could possibly be responsible for much of mythology! Like Elves, Fairies and Leprechauns for example! I am sure there is a psychic and dimensional influence and I doubt that any ET craft is held together with nuts and bolts

I think you're wrong to make the assumption that ETI can't be in there somewhere. There's really nothing I've come across that leads me to the conclusion that the entire spectrum of UFO phenomena must have a single cause. I like Vallee, but I don't agree with his complete tossing of the ETH. There could certainly be more going on, but I think "aliens" holds up pretty well for certain subsets of the unknowns. Either way, it's a little premature to be saying that UFOs "are" this or that.

It's not an assumption. His books and the books of Jung and Campbell give plenty of evidence. Plus, consider this. If the UFO phenomenon is psychic / mystical in nature then an advanced mystic should be able to interact with the UFO phenomenon through mysticism. And in fact that is what I have done, as a mystic and as a 'UFO contactee'.

The ET mythos is what the archetypes of the collective unconscious look like when viewed through the filter of materialism. Materialism is a self-defeating paradigm.

Let go of the obsolete ETH, and start studying Jung and Campbell.

Jaime Maussan is the best one out there.

People that says he is a hoax don't want the true about UFO.

Aside from scientists dealing with debris from crashed alien craft, if any, my top vote goes to a USAF bomber pilot who, with four corroborating witness on board, saw a 60-foot grayish disc, followed it, and closed to within 1/8 mile at a slightly higher altitude. They all filed reports, and he later spent many years as a top debunker (Colonel William T. Coleman, Public Information Officer for Project Blue Book and the USAF’s Chief Public Relations Officer in the early 1970s), keeping his personal sighting secret until asked the UFO gotcha question "Have you ever seen a UFO yourself? " point-blank on national TV 23 years after the fact, at which point he freely admitted it. So I would say a clear personal sighting and years in the UFO business at that level (albeit on the other side despite not believing what it was his job to say) makes him quite an expert, indeed--unless, as debunkers would be inclined to claim, he was lying about his sighting (or had a head injury or something!).

Ive watched and read every video and book i can find on the subject for over 25 years.

Theres plenty of other people who are technically experts but they just use the knowllege to spread BS in an attempt to make money.

And by experts (which I agree with your great choices as a starting point) did you only mean researchers? I think that by excluding the people who have stepped up to the plate to give live accounting of the ET presence, are the truest form of expert however they are the most ridiculed and scoffed at.

A UFO expert? I would have to say the aliens piloting them.

I'm suprised there haven't been more mentions of Timothy Good. He has always seemed very level headed, and focused on witness testimony without injecting too much opinion.

Worth a look. His books make for good reading if nothing else.

As mentioned here in a prior post, there is no such thing as a UFO expert exept the dark folks from the government who have hands on, the people that reverse engineer. These other people rant on the same dull cases, roswell, rendalshem and so on.My friends daughter is a expert on pink unicorns, they are pink, have a single horn and have been spotted in narnia oz and a few other places

Why not? People have been researching them for years, and some people have amassed a vast amount of data, and researched a wide range of inter-connecting things, so they are experts!
