Personally, I feel the matter of belief is directly proportional to a person's level of aptitude and discernment for things they hear, and see, and
Thus, someone who is a die hard skeptic or even debunker, and assuming they are not counter Intel, might not have a very high aptitude to understand
things of this nature, and I have witnessed this pattern playing out for many years, decades even.
Someone who does have a high aptitude to understand and a high margin to correctly interpret evidence they see will usually believe that these things
are real (not the obvious hoaxes of course), and actually those people will not just believe, but rather they know for a fact that there are things
coming here that are not from this planet.
There are so many different types of people, belief systems they have, and other quirks, that there isn't any real definable standards with the
subject of believing or not.. There are just too many different views that it makes the subject flawed on so many levels.
I went to a UFO documentary with the whole family in 1968 at the age of 6, (at the theater no less), and I remember vividly that I already had a knack
for understanding these types of things after seeing this film
so I never had a problem believing whether or not they were real, I already knew what they were.
And time has bore out that I was never in error in my belief because of the insane level of evidence I have seen.
I have seen classified documents on military bases, been given verbal accounts of UFO data from Air Force and Navy personnel, seen one real UFO at
Kirtland AFB that was unlike any terrestrial aircraft, and which personnel on that base said was extra-terrestrial. (if it looks like an orange it
probably is). and yes of course it is very subjective, but then, this is where aptitude plays a part in truth. People with little aptitude aren't
going to understand anything very well, especially with matters about UFO's ( this does not mean I think all these things are aliens.)
I also grew up with a friend in the family that was a chief air traffic controller for major international airports who divulged information to me
about the FAA and how they really think and operate in matters of UFO's, and he also told me in minute detail about a flying disk craft that landed on
a airport runway and sat there for 20 whole minutes before flying away. FAA procedure was to divert traffic and to totally ignore the UFO and wait for
it to leave.
There is tons more I have seen and heard, enough for me to understand that these things are sometimes not from this world, and I know it for a FACT,
without any doubt whatsoever.
Other people with the same or better levels of aptitude to understand these things will read this and know instantly more about what I have said and
in between the lines, than those who have a low aptitude. Yes, this does tend to piss-off those that don't appreciate there being people that are
pretty much, a lot smarter than they are, and they will argue against every single thing I have said until they are red faced and spitting, much to
the rest of our amusement.
All this being said, there are of course a lot of very well made hoaxes and some of the BEST hoaxes are done by governments in many cases, usually the
USA, and they are exceedingly successful and good at counter intelligence and disinformation. The smartest people in the world can be fooled by those
people, because they are also some of the smartest people in the world and are even better at deception..
I'll give it a rest for now
Cheers to all and happy new year.
