My e-mail is often larded with interesting nuggets, similar to this revelation:
« The aliens are in touch. They underline certain strange words on the screen whenever I use my computer . It’s an email. »
Possibly. Then again, probably the correspondent should turn the spell-check off on his word processor.
It really is as predictable as a sitcom that is low-grade but each and every day I arrive at my office comprehending that before quitting time, i am going to get a minumum of one phone call or e-mail from someone who has news so startling, it should rock the world like Mick Jagger on tour. Generally, these folks are ringing or writing to report something strange into the sky or an oddity in a photograph. Occasionally they inform me that smooth-skinned beings from another world, clearly overstepping the bounds of polite behavior, have abducted them for a couple hours of malicious molestation.
These correspondents, every one of whom are patently sincere, mostly want to share proof that is incontrovertible of presence or influence. A claim that is few have developed a breathtaking theory of physics that renders all graduate-level courses when you look at the subject obsolete.
Either will be knowledge of a high order. Either would affect the future trajectory of humankind. I will feel flattered that someone wants me to be one of the primary to know.
Within the years, I’ve dealt with thousands of such communications, and I also suppose it’s inevitable that i have become slightly jaded by the stories — that are largely repetitive. It really is hardly a secret that I’m skeptical of declarations that the aliens are on trips on the planet.
Still, I you will need to answer each one of these mails and phone calls because, all things considered, it isn’t a violation of physics to travel from 1 star system to a different. Difficult that I erect a shield against considering possible new evidence as it is, I resist the temptation to become so hardened in my skepticism.
Indeed, an inflexible mind-set is among the two principal arguments made by the UFO community to spell out why mainstream scientists are doubtful of the claims: They lament that pointy-headed scientists just won’t go through the evidence. And so I take that as a caution.
Their other argument, that the evidence that is best is being hidden because of the government, is silly. (suite…)
