UFO Conjecture(s)

Not really a change; just a slight alteration

Since we're using The Iconoclast(s) for a new blog, related to our media work, I've changed the title of this blog, but the URL remains the same obviously.

UFO conjecture is really what we're about, despite David Rudiak et al. not understanding the term or principle. I'm hoping the revamped title will make it clear what the purpose of this blog is, and dissuade some readers from continuing to be ignorant, about UFOs and intellectualism generally.



  • A New Direction.

    That is what certain politicians in the UK are frequently on about. They then revert to all the old directions.

  • Yes, CDA, we're really doing about what we have been doing but plan to try to be a little more conjectural; that is, I hope we get a little more imaginative, seeking out some obtuse UFO hypotheses and presenting a few new, unique ideas (which have sprouted at our private UFO site from non-UFO buffs).

  • Given all the completely wild and far-out conjectures we've heard for decades to explain the relatively simple act of people making "UFO" reports, what has not been said?

  • There was an EC comic book story, Zoam, that showed UFOs to be pieces of fingers slipping through a dimension portal; that is, the finger tip was pushing through a portal and observers thought it was a disk or UFO.

    I'll see if I can find a panel from the comic book.

    (And there are other quaint, odd hypotheses from the early flying saucer era that you are too young to have ancountered, but I bet CDA has.)

  • There was Gerald Heard and his intelligent Martian bees idea. Very few, if any, saucer fans at the time knew Heard had written a detective story a decade earlier called "A Taste for Honey" featuring, you guessed it, intelligent bees!

    And the author's name, as printed on the cover, was not Gerald Heard either.

  • You mean, CDA, the name on the detective story wasn't Heard's, right?

    I liked his alien bees "explanation" -- thinking outside the hive, as it were.

  • I am okay with the name change. Nothing wrong with conjecture if we are careful to label it as such.

    I do like how the comments have mentioned fiction that (perhaps) influenced ufology. I'd be up for a bit more of that under the "conjecture" banner.

    As part of my review of the Hill case, I recently read this truly incompetent bit of pulp fiction, owing to its very interesting title and cover:

    J. Hunter Holly: The Flying Eyes (1962)

    Today, I received in the mail another short novel by the same author, again with an intriguing title:

    J. Hunter Holly: The Grey Aliens (1964)

    Martin Kottmeyer, take note!
