My e-mail is generally larded with interesting nuggets, such as this revelation:
“The aliens have been in touch. Whenever i personally use my computer, they underline certain strange words from the screen . It really is an email.”
Possibly. Then again, perhaps the correspondent should turn the spell-check off on his word processor.
It is as predictable as a low-grade sitcom, but every day I arrive at my office comprehending that before quitting time, I will get at least one phone call or e-mail from someone who has news so startling, it should rock the whole world like Mick Jagger on tour. Generally, these folks are ringing or writing to report something strange in 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 few hours of malicious molestation.
These correspondents, all of whom are patently sincere, mostly wish to share incontrovertible proof of alien 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 would be knowledge of a high order. Either would affect the trajectory that is future of. I will feel flattered that someone wants me to be one of the primary to know.
On the full years, I’ve dealt with huge number of such communications, and I suppose it’s inevitable that I’ve 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 an outing on our world.
Still, I attempt to answer each one of these mails and phone calls because, most likely, it is not a violation of physics to visit in one star system to another. Difficult because it’s, I resist the temptation to become so hardened during my skepticism that I erect a shield against considering possible new evidence.
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 their claims: They lament that pointy-headed scientists just will not go through the evidence. So I take that as a caution.
Their other argument, that the best evidence is being hidden because of the government, is silly. Continue reading “Connection With Aliens? Think If Your Wanting To Call.”
