An Interesting Observation

Copyright 2017, InterAmerica, Inc.

In this magazine issue for March/April 1978 is a fascinating story on Page 66; a sighting by two young boys of an object with legs.

(I've scanned the page and left it full scan so you can mouse over the image, below, to read it in toto.)

I would, as is my wont, ascribe this account to a folie à deux except for the fact that folie à deux in children is rare and unique in how or why it occurs.

I've placed a link to a PDF explaining folie à deux HERE for those of you might be interested in such things.

Ms. Cortez, the author of the piece closes, as you will read, with the supposition that the witnesses saw a strange object in the sky or the account stemmed from "a form of thought projection."

Here's the one page article. What do you think?

The Horde of Non-Convincing Ufologists

Where are the UFO aficionados, ET believers, UFO agnostics, and UFO skeptics who make their UFO case convincing?

Stanton Friedman has been pushing the extraterrestrial slant for UFOs since time immemorial it seems. Has he convinced anyone, really convinced them?

Has anyone in the anti-ETH camp countered his views that have convinced most of that Stanton is wrong?

Robert Sheaffer, Tim Printy, and Donald Menzel or Philip Klass before them, have they made a bona fide skeptical case that resonates with UFO buffs?

The erudite French skeptic Gilles Fernandez has provided reams of UFO material that offsets the vivid views of UFO fanatics, but has he convinced any of them, or those of us on the fence, that his (Gilles’) views are right?

What about the occasional Lance Moody? Has he offered an air-tight rebuttal to any of the UFO hypotheses floating around in his tight milieu?

Did (or do) John Keel’s obtuse musings straighten out the UFO mess?

What about Jacques Vallee’s control agent or Jose Caravaca’s “external agent” (Distortion Theory); have either made a case that convinces anyone that UFOs are presented to us by something beyond us?

And what of Zoam Chomsky’s “UFOs” are nothing but hot air, hot air from blathering UFO addicts? Has he won converts?

Then there are the lesser lights in the UFO community, me among them, have any of them made a good case for or against the  prevailing UFO attempts at explanation?

My point? There is no one voice, or any voice, that has shown up in the UFO world who has made a convincing case, one way or another, about the phenomenon that many of us bedraggle or lives with, no one.

And I don’t expect a UFO messiah to show up any time soon.
