Assuming somene was abducted with this gps thing, and did show you some stats, im pretty sure you'd just say its fake or a hoax anyways.
That's where you would be wrong.
It would seem you're of the opinion that I dismiss everything, yet, here I am advocating for a solution that could bring confirming evidence,
regardless of how small the probability for such having a positive hit is or is not.
I would suggest you see to your very own bias. I'm certainly more objective than anything you've demonstrated. I start from the most rational and
down to earth probable explanations for phenomenon and behavior, and work from there.
To the chagrin and stymied disappointment of those taking the opposite approach of screaming "Aliens" without any evidence for there being any such
thing, and staying with Aliens in an all or nothing attitude, this approach of starting with rational explanations first creates an attitude of
resentment for the fact that no matter how hard they wish and want for Aliens, they never actually do seem to turn up, so, they vent their
frustrations on those who've taken away their invisible lollipop though there never was an invisible lollipop to begin with.
Were the subject, any subject to come back with GPS data indicating that they did indeed travel at some phenomenal speed beyond the capabilities of
known aircraft, I'd certainly question the integrity of the data.
If the data is written with ball point pen on a napkin, that would indicate some several possibilities where if the data is accessible on a website
where the data gets logged in a read-only format such the subject won't be able to tamper with the data, then that would indicate another thing
If the data is less the former and more the latter, then, we could with good faith examine the data as having a higher probability for being true.
From there, we then plug in the data log to a map to plot the points according time stamps.
Such a thing would give us a direction and path of travel.
We then follow the path of travel to see where it goes and or if the time stamps are consistently regular, looking for plot points physically close
together which could indicate a destination.
We then examine all suspect destination points for anything out of place or of any interest.
If we find a plausible suspect destination area, and it's general location is conspicuously remote from any human habitations, then, we might very
plausibly have a good candidate for on-the-ground investigation.
If we examine a suspect destination and find that it's a military base or other conspicuously Military Industrial Complex, or Government associated
agency, then, that too would be quite very interesting.
If the data does not give any indication of a destination, then, further data sets may reveal a pattern, and/or eventually point out destination
locations that might present good candidacy for on-the-ground investigation.
Wouldn't it be neat to send out some UFO field researchers and have them disappear without a trace?
Wouldn't it be neat if they didn't disappear but instead found a secret UFO base of operations?
Of course, zero data gives us absolutely nothing to work with.
If no one tries, then all we have is the same we're stuck with today; nothing.
