UFOs and The Roswell Virus


The 1947 Roswell episode has tainted and continues to taint UFO research and scrutiny.

Joseph Capp at UFO Media Matters is obsessed with Roswell, Paul Kimball’s blog has been infected, and Stan Friedman and Kevin Randle have been ill with the Roswell “disease” for many years now.

For some reason, ufologists seem to think that the Roswell incident holds the key to the UFO phenomena, and the 30 year scrutiny – the initial story got shunted aside from 1947 until the late 70s it seems – of Roswell has mined everything that was and is available to mine.

The Ros”well” is dry, and ufologists can’t slake their thirst there, but they are deluded by the Roswell mirage.

It is time to move on, to other aspects of the UFO mystery.

Those aspects may be hidden or subliminal but intense research should be able to ferret out something worthwhile, if something worthwhile is actually there.

Sure, the Roswell story intrigues, in several ways, but it investigation of the imbroglio continue to come up empty.

Human behavior, military snafus, and the will to believe have been spotlighted, but UFOs?

Nothing tangible has turned up….none of the supposed debris, or alien bodies, or photographs of anything weird.

Peripheral materials have surfaced; FBI messages, anecdotal remembrances, Mogul balloons, even death-bed revelations.

But nothing that science or anyone could call “evidence” – not even circumstantial evidence, just hearsay and a flawed newspaper headline.


It’s time to move on…..really.
