I have to wonder. I did try and keep an interest but from what I could tell there weren't major stories during 2013. Lots and lots of rubbish, I mean
look now, one active thread is yet another "object by the sun". Christ, we're a good 4 or 5 years into that and still nothing proven there, clearly
it's not real if it was we would know by now.
So will 2014 be choc full of objects by the sun, will more people throw AA batteries in the air and claim them to be cylindrical UFOs? YES, of course
they will! Your beliefs are going to be obfuscated even more than they were in 2013, 2012 or 2011, or any other previous year for that matter.
I've bought a quad-copter. Christ, even *I* am going to add 0.0001% of obfuscation to ufology by flying that thing around..
So, we can't predict the future, and please spare us all the BS and don't try - but here's hoping 2014 will be a better year? What I am interested to
know though is your favorite stories/events from 2013? What did I miss? I didn't even see any articles in papers this year, despite papers having
articles almost every other year since 2006. But again, maybe I picked up the wrong papers in 2013?
Even personal sighting stories seemed far and few but perhaps that was me not really delving into the subject this year as I have for several years
previous. Did any stories/articles this year change your viewpoint, if so, which way, and why?
So please, what were the best/most convincing stories in 2013?
Through 2012 even the general non-ufology populous took an interest in such weird subjects, bandwagoning the end of the world mythos - but this year
there was nothing like that for them. So I have not heard a single person mention aliens or even conspiracy stuff this year. The people who were
passionate about chemtrails don't seem bothered anymore. Even I pay little attention to the forums now, because none of it does a real sighting
justice... Did anyone else lose interest, or gain interest?
Please do sum up 2013
I mean, for example, in 2008 and 09 I had amazing, absolutely AMAZING ufology years. 10, 11 and even some of 12 weren't that
bad. But this year just gone, 2013...dullest bloody year I've ever known during my interest in this subject... It could well be that I simply don't
need justification any more, from those who believe and from those who don't - from threads that offer a realistic view and from those that are just
fodder. But I still keep an eye out for the next big mystery, spirals, mass sightings etc. But just....can't recall anything from 2013 right now??
There were some nice crop circles I suppose. Can't deny that. But again even they were pretty tame compared to some of the last years works..
Did governments come clean about UFOs as they have over past 5 years? Did people continue to push Obama/US Gov to stop playing games? Were there any
big, undeniable sightings? Were the same old authors pushing the same old cash-cows? Has UFOlogy ADVANCED in anyway in 2013 or been as stagnant as it
looks at first glance?
So - your thoughts on 2013 and aliens?
