Example(s) of how loony UFO devotees have become -- from Kevin Randle's blog 1/9/15

You know, after spending the last few months reading this blog from the beginning. I'm fascinated by the knowledge of the UFO subject from both the ETH's (of which I tend to side with) and the sceptics who post here. I'm no researcher, simply an avid reader of the subject over the last few decades, but from what I can gather, the best explanation for why the disc/s crashed in the Roswell incident, is pilot error.

As mentioned by Starman, these beings certainly don't seem to be invincible. I mentioned earlier that if they are biological beings,which would seem to be the case, they probably can have an "off" day, same as us. Maybe they get tired, get hayfever...get "dear John" postcards from the missus.

KR jokingly mentioned above that "someone might have pressed the wrong button". That's not an outlandish theory to me. In one of the books in my vast collection...about 20 paperbacks :-( ... I remember reading an interesting point being made by the author (was it you Kevin?...might be Tim Good) that in some reported cases, the ufo's act like they are being piloted by juvenile delinquents secretly taking daddys car out for a drive. In the JAL case mentioned by Larry above, this UFO the size of two Nimitz class carriers was practically showing off!
Some reports suggest that UFO's could be accused of playing "chicken" with our pilots. Playfully buzzing them.

It's quite feasible to me that some,off colour, or cocky alien pilot could have made a "pigs ear" of it.

Based on a lot of reports of UFO aerial behavior it seems clear that a lot of their pilots are "hotdogs" in the cockpit.

  • That is an excellent example of why Ufology could never organize itself out of a paper bag and never will.

    Sobriety toward the subject translates into cartoons and an odd sort of schizophrenia results where one imagination debates another as if this were all codified.

    What makes this even more surrealistic are the thin skins that prevail. Over what?

    No one outside of this subculture will touch the subject with a ten foot pole as a result.

    It's safe to assume this topic will remain in the interstatial space between A and B forever, consigned to religious mythology tailored for the 21st Century.

  • Such "looney devoteeism" is why the Invisible College remains for the most part sub rosa, but for some courageous members, such as Jacques Vallee and Thomas Bullard...

  • As a bright teacher once told me that Welcome Back Kotter had destroyed school discipline.

    Star Trek convinced now generations that space travel was mechanical and that the universe was teeming with bipedal life.

    Conspiracy nuts, and the like, make fringe anything their own common knowledge. Think abnormal psyche.

    Aerial phenomena teases us and Fermi helped out in his own way. And yet there certainly is aerial phenomena.

    This blog has pushed my skepticism to the point of questioning my own observation. Still, I try to remind myself on a regular basis that there really are unknowns and our interest is appropriate and not self abuse.

    To define and taint curiosity in terms religious mythology is itself short sighted. In all cases certainly there is much to be revealed. I do like the notion that we are seekers and explorers and we should not be distracted by the rabble.

  • Reading these reminds me once again that an aphorism that Robert Heinlein put into the mouth of one of his characters: "Never underestimate the power of human stupidity."

    One might also wonder why allegedly intelligent "skeptics" would also spend time at such a place... to quote another old saying: "A 'wise' man who argues with fools is not wise."
