UFOs and Ufology: The End is Near
Those paying attention can see that the UFO phenomenon has reached a nadir.
When Kevin Randle, and me, and many others are struggling to find relevant, new UFO ideas and material but can’t, UFO buffs have to accept, if they are reasoning individuals, that the thing which interested them, and still does, to some extent, has diminished in relevancy and importance.
We UFO aficionados are, as Bruce Duensing might put it, beating a dead horse.
Scouring the UFO “universe” one is struck by the desperation to find something germane or significant.
YouTubers are loading their spots on the video site with images of flecks or ripples on the moon, and strange configuration in NASA’s Mars rRover pictures, not UFOs necessarily, but somehow seemingly related…..at least as they try to portray it.
Bloggers (like us and Mr. Randle) are dredging up old sightings and controversies, begging readers to comment and re-ignite the topic….to no real avail.
The Anomalist is noting many more items of paranormality than items about UFOs.
We, all of us, are providing the dregs of UFO lore, while new “observations” are either created out of whole cloth and anything with a odd shape or cast in the sky has become fodder for a UFO designation.
There are past UFO mysteries to clear up, but that’s grist for the hobbyist, not the public at large, or new, curious UFO mavens, who are a rare breed nowadays.
The once prominent phenomenon (or enigma) is the farthest thing of interest for a culture or society in the midst of turmoil(s) that really count.
I’ll plug along here, acknowledging the futility of my effort, because UFOs provide surcease of my other vibrant concerns and interests that consume the bulk of my day and thinking.
Hang in here, with me, if you like. I’ll still try to invigorate a matter that we all know is on its deathbed, but on life support.
