Mr. Oberg part of the problem are those people who go derailing threads (like the one that you recently tried to make into a copyright issue), the
people who eargly and furiously jump on anyone here that tries to share its experience/story and are so intelectualy arrogant to issue certificates of
mental illness or insanity (by just reading a story).
Those people that possess an static conception of knowledge, those who think that the theoretic bounderies of our know science are stonewalls that
cant be overcomed.
Copernicus, Thyco Brahe, Galileo just to name a few made that bould step to defy orthodox thinking and knowledge. They exposed themselves to ridicule
and risked their own lifes (The Holly Inquisition was not a Monty Phyton´s joke) by just claiming that they saw things differently. And time proved
that they were the ones that got into history books.
So, those people that are part of the problem - the ATS debunking police. Skepticism is one thing, debunkers are way different.
Skepticism is a fundamental tool to discern true facts from rubbish.
ATS is increasingly becoming a place where people are afraid of exposing themselves to mockery by sharing their experiences. No one is obliged to take
them as true or as infalible reports. Even to listen to them.
The pursue of knowledge and information is compromised.
Just imagine if Vallee or Hynek had adopted the attitude of Prof. Edward Condon in the face of those wild reports/facts they compiled and studied.
Maybe that´s a reason why so many contributors left ATS in recent years.
We have some strange phenomena going on for decades (even centuries?) on our skies, land and seas.
We have reports showing that happens day or night, inside or outside buildings, with good or bad weather.
We have radar evidence.
We have the testimony of military/test/civilan pilots, policeman, ordinary people with various degree of education.
We have patterns of events worldwide in a time long before the Internet (and by thousands (tens?)) of people that were not contaminetd by each others
We have a wall of silence imposed on the military and scientif personnel about this subject (UFO´s and its ramifications).
And we still dont have a clue!
And those people that are really part of the problem haven´t yet contributed to anything.
I will not go to the trouble of making a link to justify all the above. There already enough threads here in ATS exposing those evidence (radar,
pilots testimonies, etc)
