The Present UFO "Situation"

Nick Redfern has addressed the present state of "ufology" and UFOs at Mysterious Universe, with views that we find commensurate with our own.

  • Ufology have reached a very important step, not noticed by Nick:

    Imagine, face it and take into account that NOW, when people have or believe to have ALIEN evidence(s) (like slides), they dont go to Mainstreams, Universities, or so on, to present a news of such a magnitude for Humankind.

    Nono! People contact Ufologists!

    Sarcasms inside? Probably...

    More seriously, interesting article, as usual from Nick Redfern. Thank's for sharing.

  • Nick is right only if you believe that the UFO phenomenon represented extraterrestrial visitation as opposed to something more ephemeral, timeless, and constantly evolving. The intelligence that was behind the UFOs of the 1950s and 1960s (if indeed there was one) may still be here, interacting with us in different ways.

    But if it was aliens, and if the only real work to be done is an examination of the past, then let us hope that real historians, properly trained and objective by nature, are the ones who take up the search. Don't hold your breath, however.

  • No, Paul, Nick is right...

    The phenomenon, whether alien visitation or an intelligence interacting with humans, peaked and no longer is doing so.

    It seems to have been more prevalent in the early history of mankind, then took an hiatus during the middle or Dark Ages (despite some sightings as noted in the Vallee/Aubeck book, Wonders in the Sky) but came back for a brief period at the end of the 19th Century and again in the modern era, 1947 onward, up to the late 1970s when the phenomenon seems (seems!) to have petered out, or lost its vibrancy, at least.

    The cyclical nature of the phenomenon is an area for scrutiny or study I think.

  • Naaaah. It's a waste of time. Documentation is lost, incomplete, or in some cases the original source material is lost; witnesses are dead or have developed challenged memories; and the 2-foot fish has grown into Moby Dick over time with repeated and inaccurate retellings and embellishments.

    People were more technologically naive back in the day so there were more reports simply because the things seen were things people today would never mistake as spacecraft from another world. We have grown far more scientifically astute and intelligent about the universe during the ensuing decades.

    Since there are no cases with irrefutable substantiating evidence from that era that can be used as proof of anything, nobody's going to be solving the mystery in our lifetimes or the lifetimes of the generations following us by continuing to rehash them.

    So it falls to current or future UFO case(s) to provide hard evidence. But we'll ignore them because, well, they aren't as lovable as the scifi B movie cases that excited us as kids. And besides. why would an alien technology ever advance from the tin cans spotted in the 1940s?

    So at present, it all boils down to whether or not one wants to believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, or flying saucers piloted by spacemen. And, absent tangible, irrefutable, biological evidence (like tissue samples) of an alien presence on Earth that can be openly examined in public, it will remain that way.

    You take all the fun out of our nostalgic fantasy.

  • Considering all the evidence, such that it is, the idea that all of it is due to a visitation from another planet is absolutely laughable. The chimeric quality and behavior of it suggests strongly that the whole of it arises from not one but several sources that are somewhat like a composite made up of puzzle pieces. The human mind is being attenuated by something both mysterious and yet presents itself in exaggerated parodies of the prosaic which would not be surprising, again, if this is a experiential composite of one or more parallel realities whose anchor and projection screen is the human experience as it is we who is subject to inter-cranial anomalies.

  • Continued
    The continuing joke of looking for hard evidence like stray nuts and bolts is led by the most uncreative types imaginable. It often reminds me of a Monty Python sketch.
    Looking past the edge is required, and there doesn't seem to be a crowd capable of doing this, let alone in the wake of comic book morbidity that has characterized the subject as a laughing stock. I think the zenith of this lunacy of stupidity was reached when I saw a television program of researchers digging through a garbage dump..looking for exotic debris.
