I believe that the blind regurgitation of information over long periods of time does more to damage the credibility of those who believe aliens have
been visiting earth for decades, if not longer. Certain information becomes "available," which cannot be verified, and for some reason it is taken
as fact by many due to nothing more than sheer repetition. Who knows, maybe some of that information is true, but I just spent an hour reading from
that site, and from what I know of the subject, most of what is mentioned is at best mere speculation and guesswork.
There is a tying together of very circumstantial evidence with the testimony of nutters, combined with the testimony of credible witnesses who cannot
be positive as to what they have seen, due to the nature of viewing objects in the sky and in space at distance, where tricks of light and other
optical illusions truly distort the way the human brain perceives the images. There are just too many people who want to believe, in my opinion, and
therefore they accept very little evidence but treat it as fact, when it is nothing of the sort.
Of the vast majority of ufo related reports that I have seen, even many high profile cases, there is nothing much for definiteness. I will admit that
a small percentage of the cases are quite puzzling, but due to the lack of information and data, there should be no reason to lean to the
extraterrestrial explanations over the terrestrial ones. I agree with those who are stating that the linked documents are nothing more than a
collection of widely regurgitated information, none of which can be verified as fact. I think a lot of it was just made up by people for personal
Then there are those who were in a position to know something, and it can be verified that they held high positions within the government or
military...But the information they are giving is never as catchy and in depth as the information given by people whose credentials cannot be
verified. For instance, Bob Lazar...It is quite possible that he embellished the vast majority of the information given during his interviews. He
probably worked for the military or government to some extent, but that just makes lying all the more easier. Plus, there is no way anyone can prove
that he is lying. There are other people in this same position as well.
And the fact that people constantly mistake terrestrial craft and natural phenomena for alien craft has been adequately proven time and time again.
However, despite all of the strikes against the belief in extraterrestrials visiting earth, coupled with the fact that I do not buy into the idea, I
still cannot say that it is impossible. I could be totally incorrect in my interpretation of the evidence, although I feel that the way I interpret
the evidence and available data in a much more down to earth fashion, no pun intended. Sometimes you cannot stretch the truth, even if there is no way
to prove that the stretching is impossible.
