Question is - why did academia abandon the subject? Remember the
fate of the COMETA publication? (search for "cometa ihedn")

http://www.virtuallystrange.net/ufo/updates/1999/jul/m22-015.shtml

A high-level, technical and academic appraisal, it was
immediately attacked and persistently anti-propagandized at
great (gov't?) expense until most folk are now afraid to even
reference it.

Why were certain agencies afraid of the COMETA appraisal? I
suggest two basic reasons - in the text:


1) "the physical reality of UFOs, under control of
intelligent beings, is "quasi-certain." Only one hypothesis
takes into account the available data: the hypothesis of
extraterrestrial visitors."

2) "the possibility of secret, privileged contacts which
might be "attributed to the United States." The attitude of the
U.S. is seen as "most strange" since the 1947 wave"


And that "strange attitude" has since been imposed on other,
previously more open-minded regions, as Listers' memory will
show.

Latin-America, Europe and much of the world _not_ under
totalitarian rule was once more open-minded (excluding UK, the
most secretive, and arguably most corrupt bureaucracy in
Europe). All open-mindedness has now gone - secrecy and ridicule
is a given. Where is that pressure coming from?

Let's examine the (gov't sponsered) debunkers' only real
premise: "Everything presently unknown (what you can't measure
NOW) doesn't exist - by decree!"

Yes - it's the same premise used for imprisoning & burning
Giordano Bruno and for silencing Galileo.

Modern mind-control? Or secret take-over?

cheers
