The books, pictured, add sustenance to my view that Ufology
is or has become a religion for many UFO buffs and UFO skeptics too.
The Encyclopedia of Religious Phenomena could be
published as The Encyclopedia of Ufological Phenomena and the content
would work just as well.
The physics book by Dave Goldberg [Ph.D.], a professor and
director of undergraduate studies at Drexel University, acts as an exegetical
counter to the belief substrate in the religious encyclopedia and its faux
cousin, the ufological phenomena encyclopedia.
The material in the religious encyclopedia offers an
overview of all the various religions extant, those that are real religions and
those that are merely cults.
The physics-oriented book offers a genuine view of the
mysteries of the universe that confront physicists, some of which I will
present here upcoming.
UFO buffs, a few who visit here, are doused in a belief
system about UFOs (that they are ET craft or that disclosure of an alien
visitation is imminent, like the Second Coming of Christ) which has all the earmarks
of religious belief, fanatic and otherwise.
Physicists, as loopy as they can sometimes be, hold back,
usually, from accepting anything as a final truth, especially when it comes to
workings of physical laws, particularly those in quantum mechanics.
There is no firm belief inside real physicists, real
While in ufology there are those who are hardcore believers
and those who are fervent UFO atheists. (Need I name them?)
Each operating within the same kind of parameters that make
up theology or religious belief.
I’ll have more about all this, of course, as staunch
believers of anything, pro or con, get my goat.
