Yes! Thank you for stating the matter precisely. The reality is ufologists (note: not ufology crowd) succeeded in establishing a principal hypothesis as fact - the presence of non-human intelligence engaging the planet. It was the finest example of citizen/science in history and done at great cost and personal sacrifice. However, with their own government in direct opposition to this result, they had to prove it over and over again. The state's opposition was not based on science. It was a matter of government policy. So the resolution of the issue must be political. Those ufologists who believe the ETH has not been established have every right to feel that way. In either case, to the best of my knowledge, I and my colleagues have great respect for the collective accomplishments of ufologists and ufology over the past sixty years. That such respect is often not reciprocated, while unfortunate, is of little consequence to the larger outcome. One more point. For most of his life, perhaps the finest ufologist of his or any other time, James McDonald, could not bring himself to believe his government had been lying to him and his fellow citizens regarding the UFO issue. Near the end of his life he finally realized the truth of that, likely one of three reasons why he committed suicide (the other two being the humiliation he experienced at the SST congressional hearing and the estrangement from his wife.) The UFO/ET truth is not a science matter, it is an exopolitical matter - the politics of the manipulation of and interference with science by the state . SB Listen to 'Strange Days...
