A new article from me on one of the stranger aspects of Ufology. It starts like this...
Last year I wrote an article here at Mysterious Universe titled “UFOs: Extraterrestrial? Probably Not.”
One of the reasons I gave for suggesting that the UFO phenomenon is far
stranger than anything of an E.T. nature, is the fact that many UFO
incidents seem to be staged for the benefit of the witness. As if “they”
are trying to convince us they are extraterrestrials. But, they are
trying way too hard. I made mention of one particular angle of the UFO
phenomenon that, in my opinion, is a perfect example. I wrote:
QUOTE: “There’s the nature of the entities themselves: they
practically overemphasize who, or what, they claim to be. Take, for
example, all those ‘soil-sampling’ aliens of the 1950s and 1960s. You
know the ones: someone is working in their field, or driving down a
stretch of road, when they encounter a couple of diminutive aliens
collecting specimens of local plants, flowers, and vegetables. E.T. on a
scientific mission, right? No, not in my view.
