The secret government tech argument is tempting, but one problem is that UFOs have been reported continuously since the begining of recorded history.
It's not just ancient aliens and modern ones - they've been described all over the world in every century. Also, many of the same characteristcs
are consistent through time; similar ufos are reported now as were reported 50 and 100 years ago. If it was all technology, one would expect the UFOs
of today to be vastly different from the UFOs of 50 years ago. . . just as different as any other technology; nearly unrecognizable after a few
Also, if this secret tech existed all over the world and has for decades, why keep up the sharade with regular fighter jets? Clearly conventional
fighters are used in wars, why do that if flying saucers that are so much more advanced could be used instead?
And how would the technology be kept secret from the academic community for so long? Right angle turns, instantanious acceleration of thousands of
miles per hour. . . how could the physics and engineering departments of major universities fail to pick up on even the basic underlying principals of
these technologies? The gov't hires people who come from those programs, so how can the gov't opperate on an entirely different paradigm? Where
did the technology come from?
And if all the UFOs are gov't tech, what are they being used for? At some point the programs have to get funding, and if they aren't generating
anything that is used it wouldn't make sense to keep them going. Clearly wars aren't being fought by UFOs, if they were there would be reports of
it. There are tons of UFO reports but I'm not aware of any that describe a UFO attacking an enemy target during a war.
As I said, the advanced secret tech argument is tempting, but I don't think it's sufficient.
