Before we get started here: I fully believe in an anomalous non-human intelligence behind a small percentage of UFO accounts. I'm not a hardcore
I am, however, rather picky and prefer to vet and study opinions and research on both sides of any UFO encounter.
Roswell was--once-upon-a-time--of great interest to me, but a close look sheds much doubt on the story and seems to suggest, imo, more myth than

2.) Am I wrong to question these sacred cows of ufology? Does that somehow make me "less than?"
It's my sincere passion and belief that we'll NEVER have a chance of getting to the bottom of the mystery as long as we're unwilling to vet ALL of the
data and be willing to let some things go in lieu of focusing on maybe more solid, but often lesser-known cases.
Before we get started: Yes, I know the hype of, "Roswell has more than 600 witnesses!"
Riddle me this then: Exactly how many were allegedly first hand?
How many of those accounts, both first and second hand, have serious problems?
Are you openminded enough to admit there are problems with many of those testimonies? Or do you just ignore those aspects because it doesn't fit your
I LOVE my ATS family, and I hope I'm not gonna be hated on here. But I also have a sincere and lifelong passion for ufological truth, and I don't
