UFO Conjecture(s)

A UFO Melange [that’s almost but not quite insane]

We have descended here into intellectual anarchy.

Jose Caravaca’s Distortion Theory (or hypothesis if you will) has provoked a limited exchange about what it is or isn’t.

Jose’s “theory” doesn’t really address the UFO enigma as most UFO buffs see that enigma.

 Jose’s conjecture conjures with those strange encounters that have a UFO or flying saucer patina, encounters where strange, flying artifacts containing humanoid beings interact with humans.

That is not grist for most UFO mavens, and it surely is dismissed by those who see UFOs as something mysterious but not mysteriously weird.

Gilles Fernandez provokes UFO buffs with his erudite presentation of material that seems to provide a psychological explanation to explain faulty UFO research and reports.

And Gilles is loath to see any possibilities outside those that have a human psychological resonance. (Paranormal mysteries seem to lie outside Gilles interest or concern; a trait that some find disturbing and unique to skeptical reasoning.)

Roswell is on Kevin Randle’s front burner – his blog -- and has attracted the motley crew of Roswellian hobbyists who like to indulge their fetish with the Roswell incident, regurgitating the same old, same old Roswell canards and nonsense.

That esoteric methodologies intrigue Bruce Duensing and has captivated Tim Hebert too comes as no surprise. These guys are looking for a desert phase of UFO information.

But my goal is, as it has always been, to marginalize the UFO geezers who have mucked up the UFO phenomenon with their heady ET constructs and Sci-Fi biases.

You know who they are.

By bringing forth the likes of Paul Kimball, Nick Redfern, Greg Bishop – the middle ground with UFO cachet and credibility – and the younger mind-sets of fellows like Ross Evans and Dominick, I would hope that the UFO topic might bloom anew, shorning itself of the effluvia that it has attracted over the years which persons like PurrlGurrl finds more than distasteful.

But here I am, inputting an egregious and abstruse bunch of postings and comments that have little to do with the core UFO mystery.

I’m working to make amends, and hope to get the subject matter back on track….and may do so with an account of UFO and Roswell (yes, Roswell) materials that have not seen the light of day or have been circulating sub rosa in UFO circles outside the effete venues we are all familiar with.

    The UFO Iconoclast (s) is an oasis of intellectualism that seeks beyond UFO conventionality ... gracias Rich...

  • Thanks, Jose...we are in agreement as usual.

  • "We have descended here into intellectual anarchy."

    I honestly didn't perceive it that way...

    "That esoteric methodologies intrigue Bruce Duensing and has captivated Tim Hebert too comes as no surprise. These guys are looking for a desert phase of UFO information."

    I can't speak for Bruce, but when a discussion or topic is speculative/theoretical then it is natural that schools of thought will collate. I shouldn't have to agree, just to get along. Is that not intellectual dishonesty to do so?

    I merely provided alternative thoughts and those thoughts certainly weren't wacky or way out in left field...devil's advocate, if you will.

  • Tim...you are free to roam here at will. You are a bright spot.

  • My view is that this erstwhile community of "ufology" outcasts that you have assembled here are no bunch of parrots that are overly fond of rote repetition.
    Not that anyone of us can completely disassemble the box this challenging subject has been placed into, but the variety of approaches I have read from others act as a flashlight in the dead of night, that reveal tantalizing clues along the road less traveled.
