During the holidays we often end up cooking and serving for 20, even if we are just 8 people having a Christmas lunch. It's the same procedure as every year: we cook and serve too much, we overfeed ourselves - and we overfeed our garbage cans.
Now, for the first time, a new group of scientists and other professionals is determined to change this outdated and unbalanced scenario, once and for all. Yes, we do need more scientific data on UFOs -- but who is going to provide it?
The extraterrestrials are just plain done with us. The Cold War has ended, and so has their fascination with our nuclear missile silos. So maybe they've just declared "mission accomplished," and gone away. That would be analogous to Charles Darwin's visit to the Galapagos Islands -- after he probed, bottled and cataloged some of the natives, he weighed anchor and withdrew. But here's another possibility.
The era of drones is in full flight. I'm pretty sure it means my hopes of getting a final answer to the Great UFO Riddle have been permanently grounded.
Just as MS DOS was a good operating system for the Intel x86, but even Bill Gates wouldn't use it now, our understanding of religion also needs to upgrade as human progress continues. But lets not just assume that "software upgrades" haven't already been taking place
You've probably seen them in the evening: two suspiciously bright lights in the western sky. What are they? Planes? UFOs? No, they're the two brightest planets and they're heading for a dramatic conjunction Tuesday night.
Illinois might just be one of the most UFO-crazy states in the nation. Using data from the National UFO Reporting Center and the Mutual UFO Network,...
On the weekend, I hung out with some peeps, my "kidz" and neighbors, and with their pals, sipping any number of different beers (Guinness, Horchata flavored ale, and the best of the el cheapo beers, Pabst).
The Hollywood depiction of aliens is a narrative shortcut. When diminutive, smooth-skinned, big-eyed creatures make their appearance on-screen, everyone knows where they call home. But how likely is it that any real aliens will resemble us as closely as the emblematic grays? Not very.
The CEFAA has left no stone unturned in trying to identify the source of this UAP. The Santiago Radar Control Center provided all primary radar recordings of aircraft flying in the area at the time. No known traffic could account for the lights in formation.
Could it be that no one is out there? Are we now free to declare ourselves the acme of brain power in this part of the cosmos, and certify that everything out to 50 million light-years is Klingon-free?
In our Part I article, we mentioned how numerous scientists over the past 65 years, since Fermi first raised the question "Where is everybody?", have examined Fermi's paradox and have proposed solutions. There is still no easy answer.
"Once, humans believed that the earth was flat," he said. "Even a decade ago, people would not believe that a cell phone could work. Humans, if we have never seen something with our own eyes, naturally doubt that it exists, or that life could be that way. I was the first to be brave enough to say: 'I saw that.'"
An odd phenomenon that's descriptively called a "fast radio burst" is the latest celestial discovery to capture the attention of both astrophysicists and the media -- and be labeled by some as the work of crafty extraterrestrials.
On the 5th of March, what has been called the most stunning evidence ever in the world of Ufology, was publicly uncurtained in New Mexico.
Cosmologists propose that the universe was until recently a lifeless collection of particles. But they have ignored a critical component of the cosmos because they don't know what to do with it. This component, consciousness, is an utter mystery. How did inert, random bits of matter ever morph into Obama or Lady Gaga?
Today marks the 73rd anniversary of The Battle of Los Angeles, also known as The Great LA Air Raid, one of the most mysterious incidents of World War II -- and one of the most colorful tales in all of UFO lore. It's also a tale we couldn't resist turning into a movie.
Much more data on UFOs has been accumulated than ever before, and files have been released around the world. The phenomenon's physical reality is now firmly established. But its nature and origin remain a problem. We need to join the other countries taking responsible action in addressing this persistent mystery, preferably at the White House level.
Except for a few notable exceptions, nearly all stars appear as mere points of light because their distance simply precludes our current capabilities from seeing otherwise. Let's look at a cool analogy to understand the issue and how it relates to planets.
So what happens if the aliens land? Here, on Earth. I'm not talking about detecting a radio signal or a laser flash from hundreds of light-years away. I'm speaking of visitors who actually set their boots on the ground. What do we do? It may surprise you to learn that there's precious little preparation for such an eventuality.
