Joe Obviously from your responses I realise it's going to be exceptionally difficult to engage you in any serious conversation about the value or otherwise of considering parapsychology as part of any enquiry into UFOs - even though most researchers would accept that many cases have a 'psychic' element to them. Yes they closed down the RV program but not before spending $20 million - and of course we don't know what's happening in any black budget. I probably wouldn't personally sacrifice a goat in this pursuit - but then I am a vegetarian so have personal issues with that method of divination.... But I would think it worthwhile using accredited mediums on certain cases - why not use all the tools in our toolkit to try to get to grips with a phenomena which has baffled great minds for aeons? Of course if you - as I suspect - have little or no respect for psi research and people like Dean Radin, Hal Puthoff, Gary Schwartz, Russell Targ, Robert Jahn, Edgar Mitchell and a host of others, then there's little point in continuing this dialogue. But to be fair - you did say 'Maybe you're right - where would you draw the line?' I suppose the answer would have to be that it's not for me to draw any line - research into anything in life has always ranged from the totally whacky to the erudite. If you're suggesting that mediums' involvement is as damaging to UFO PR as 'goat sacrifice' - I wouldn't agree. I think there are many people these days who accept some folk are more 'tuned in' to being able to paranormally access information, than others....and some of these are mediums. Goat sacrifice on the other hand doesn't have a particularly good public image and so wouldn't do the 'cause' of serious UFO research a great deal of good! But I have to say that entrails examination divination is probably just another way of putting the mind into a certain state which encourages perception of otherwise inaccessible information... so maybe we shouldn't throw the goat out with the bathwater...
