Metaphysics and UFOs

When my pal Kevin Randle noted at his blog that he was entangled in comments here about Lt. Col. Philip Corso, one of his dopey followers – “Capt. Steve” – remarked that he doesn’t visit this blog, preferring research over speculation.
What we engage in here, or try to, is a metaphysical approach to the UFO enigma.
That is, we (most of us) offer our limited insights about the UFO phenomenon and try to apply those insights to some kind of categorical reasoning that applies to UFOs and its concomitant followers and so-called researchers.
(Collecting UFO accounts, old and new, and old UFO ‘zines and reports, and presenting videos or photos of orbs and lights is not research. It’s hobbying.)
We can’t be scientific as there is no UFO material – despite the claims of debris or abductions of people – with which to be other than metaphysical. It’s the nature of the phenomenon calling the shots.
So, Capt. Steve and the erstwhile dolts who think UFO research is going on within the UFO community and crowd, God bless your ignorance and moronic tack on the enigma.
Facebook, Reddit, and the History Channel are grist for your informational searches.
I’m glad you’re not showing up here, where I’d have to delete your thought-to-be impressive commentary.


  • This fellow slams speculation, then goes on to speculate about Corso's motivations.

    As for research, I like the way Kevin Randle digs into a story using original sources. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you do something like that as well, Rich.

    This blog is called "UFO Conjectures." Kevin's blog has "Perspective" in the title. Are intentions so unclear?

  • Poor Kevin...

    He makes his positions clear but yet some of his followers still don't get it.

    He's too kind to note how off base they are.

    Me? I try to avoid such dolts and, fortunately, we have a rational, intelligent batch of UFO people visiting here (and commenting), like you Ronald.

  • Speaking of Randle: has anyone read or at least acquired his new book? https://www.amazon.com/LEVELLAND-KEVIN-RANDLE/dp/B09MYSRTCG/ref=sr_1_1?crid=HP2KTG3KOYW8&keywords=randle+levelland&qid=1642044863&sprefix=randle+levelland%2Caps%2C130&sr=8-1. I wonder if it's worthwhile.

    Scientific work of a limited kind can be done on the relatively few UFO cases with substantial data available (especially radar data). Obviously that work is not being done--except by rare gems among the UFO detritus such as Martin Shough.

    Without metaphysical speculation there'd be practically nothing of interest to say on this subject for most who follow it.

  • There's a corp group of UFOers who swear by the Levelland sighting. I'm not one.

    It's been hyped a lot but nothing seems to have come from it that is very rewarding.
