I see that another reprise of the
Roswell-missing-Mogul-balloon discussion has erupted at my pal Kevin Randle’s
blog, between him and
French UFO skeptic Gilles Fernandez.
When I saw it, my silent mind said, “For Christ’s sake, not
Yes, I, too, keep re-iterating the same themes over and over
again, but only because none have been really addressed by my readers, like
Kevin’s readers do when he posts something.
This is one of the problems with “ufology” besides its
inherent madness and delusion.
No one gets to the bottom of things. They merely skirt
matters, skating atop a mystery with bombastic claims and pretend information
For instance, can’t someone finally resolve the missing
Mogul balloon imbroglio?
David Rudiak thinks he has, as does Kevin. But they haven’t.
Nor has Gilles.
It remains an open question apparently. And drives “sane”
UFO buffs crazy with its continual resurrection in UFO circles.
It’s a non-matter after all. The Air Force use of Mogul as
an explanation for the Roswell incident is iffy or worse: disinformation.
The Roswellian ET believers trying to debunk the AF’s Mogul
tripe are wasting their time on the non-matter. It’s an easy assault, while what
really happened at Roswell sits encrusted by lying witnesses and UFO
“researchers” too lazy or too unimaginative to find new Roswell material that
has been hidden or forgotten amidst the Roswell clutter of foolishness and
botched research since 1978.
And, I’ve suggested that a real UFO researcher might seek
out Paul Trent’s son who is still alive and privy to his father’s photographing
of the (in)famous McMinnville UFO.
He’s the kid on the ladder in the LIFE array of Trent photos
taken shortly after the event:
And what about Frank Mannor’s son, who was with his father
and saw the Ann Arbor “swamp gas” UFO? He’s still alive and living near his old
homestead where he and his dad saw a UFO.
There are more, many more UFO escapades that could be
examined if “ufologists” got off their asses and looked for answers instead of
traipsing to Roswell for conventions or other UFO venues thinking that that’s
It’s pathetic, ufology that is, and many of it’s
practitioners (me among them).
