Here's a theory I'm sure has been discussed among the much more intelligent members of ATS, but one that I think bears some thought. I would like to ask if anyone knows where I could find a national average graph of the numbers of UFO sightings over the past four years. The logic behind this is thus: If UFOs are merely creations of our military, or otherwise advanced, yet fully human-made craft, then as the world economy plummets, the sightings should correspondingly recede as there is less money to fund them (even though ~90% of our currency is virtual anyway). However, if the sightings are somehow not of this world, and thus, not tied to our economy, the world monetary situation should have no impact on the number of sightings. Thoughts? Am I completely off my rocker here? I'm open to criticism, as long as it's polite and not attacking. If you can poke holes in my theory, that should inspire me to become a better debater, right?
