After reading many threads on this forum, the time has come to finally submit my own thread.
And with that I’d like to make this thread an overview of what your main influences within ufology are, and secondly, what your interpretation (or even conclusions) on these phenomena and their agenda (if there is any) are.
I remember the first UFO book I got when I was a kid, I can't recall the author's name but it was called UFO Encounters. It introduced me to the researchers like Stan Friedman, Don Keyhoe, J Allen Hynek, It was these men that got me interested in UFOs.
It's almost as if there may be some sort of 'Agenda' to foil peoples attempts at legitimate research/discussion/investigation
People whose UFO related work I could do without? Carl Sagan tops that list, he single-handedly set Ufology back a great deal, in my opinion. He was enormously popular and influential at the time, and he was grossly inaccurate. I bet he knew better.
Leslie Kean. Never has someone who knew so little about UFOs hit it so big. I heard her on Fresh Air on NPR, it was laughable.
If Kean is a journalist, then Art Bell is Edward R. Murrow.
Says a person who takes David "The Queen of England is a Reptillian" Icke seriously.... LMAO.
Icke is no joke, he's done his research and he has a lot to say. He's contributed a great deal to understanding this phenomenon, absolutely, ignore his work at your own risk. He doesn't have all the answers, nor does he claim to, but what he brings to the table is significant. For you to mock David Icke shows how little you understand the scope of the UFO situation.
You and the rest of the "blinded me with science" crowd are almost comical in your belief that the key to figuring out UFOs is to be found in a laboratory at some mainstream university, where professors can enlighten us about the true nature of flying saucers through peer-reviewed scientific journals. So how come seventy years later, mainstream science has added little to nothing to the field.
Your scientists have failed you. Such luminaries as Carl Sagan, Steven Hawkings, even Bill Nye the science guy have added less to our understanding of UFOs than an ex-soccer player like David Icke.
Modern science is too busy genetically modifying our food into poison and turning pesticides into carcinogenic artificial sweeteners to look into UFOs.
It's up to the rest of us, I'm afraid.
