Ever consider working for MUFON or the likes?
I know you're quite proud of your MUFON affiliation, so please don't take what I'm about to say as personal disrespect; none is intended! I did
think about U2Uing but I thought you're mostly nice and don't seem to mind honesty. I won't go into too much detail but ...
Investigation, signal processing and forensics books and manuals just aren't filled with political statements like MUFON doco is:
Not everyone can be a good, competent, professional UFO investigator. Here’s what it takes:
* You are skeptical, but not an extreme skeptic or debunker.
Always check the name of the witness in a new case to be sure the person is not associated with any kind of hoaxing or particularly skeptical or
debunking activity on the Internet.
On Occam's razor:
Extreme skeptics, debunkers, and those ignorant of the UFO sighting literature tend to think that identifying a UFO sighting stimulus as an
Unknown violates Occam’s Razor because they usually think that “the UFO people just can’t be coming from so far out in outer space.”
MUFON sources are covered in this type of thing.
It skews the member base towards certain types of persons even if that isn't the intention. Any serious UFO researcher should
look like a
'debunker' on paper, there aren't that many genuine cases. MUFON would implicate otherwise to a degree intentional or not. Thus they hamstring a
skeptical person into having to produce reams of documentation and entertain incredibly remote possibilities to stave off the stigma of being a
There is also just a general lack of knowledge and education in those communities in my experience. When a large percentage of the UFO community
can't grasp frame rates and file formats, and think 'investigation' means performing an old school wrestling hold on a curves adjustment in
Photoshop where is the common ground?
I do know there are some rockstars within those areas, no disrespect to them. If the community was strong and effective though, I'd be an easy to
replace junior like I am in my day to day job.
Is a bit like Chadwickus says I think. Step lightly, for you tread on my dreams; just some person's won't accept any treading unless you're willing
to also follow their belief systems regardless of the content of your work.
The Jerusalem UFO is a perfect example all this actually.
