The UFO Phenomenon

Ex-NASA scientist claims that UFOs are real

Prof. Kevin Knuth maintains that the truth is out there and that governments are covering up evidence of ET.
A physics professor at the State University of New York at Albany, Knuth has recently published an article calling for scientists to thoroughly examine the available evidence of UFOs here on Earth.

Much of his belief in extraterrestrial visitation stems from his own personal experiences.

Perhaps the most important of these occurred in 1988 when he was a graduate student. At the time, he had dismissed claims by his physics professor that UFOs were shooting down nuclear missiles.

He soon changed his mind when, years later, he saw a recording of a press conference during which officials from the US Air Force had described the occurrence of several similar UFO-related incidents.
These days, Knuth remains adamant that evidence of such events is being actively covered up and maintains that the topic of UFOs is still considered taboo in the scientific community.

"I think UFO skepticism has become something of a religion with an agenda, discounting the possibility of extraterrestrials without scientific evidence, while often providing silly hypotheses describing only one or two aspects of a UFO encounter reinforcing the popular belief that there is a conspiracy," he wrote.

Knuth has also detailed how documented UFO sightings spanning many years, coupled with secretive UFO studies and declassified files from world governments, represent evidence that something is definitely going on, even though there is nothing that stands out as absolutely conclusive.

"While there is no single case for which there exists evidence that would stand up to scientific rigor, there are cases with simultaneous observations by multiple reliable witnesses, along with radar returns and photographic evidence revealing patterns of activity that are compelling," he wrote.

No psyche, it was the same object.

Of course it did NOT happen as you said it did. You are claiming impossible abilities for yourself. It seems you are incapable of understanding the simple fact that it is not possible for humans to determine time durations as short as you claim to be able to determine. I guess I have to repeat yourself. Do I believe you saw something. Yes. Do I believe it happened as you claimed. Definitely not. You are pretending to be some sort of superhuman with abilities which just does not exist. Maybe you can dress up your story next time by pretending to be an alien.

I don't believe you know that. You're already pretending that  you can determine time durations 2 orders of magnitude faster than a human is able to. It's that kryptonian ability There are other visual clues that could have tricked you such as the size constancy issue. As objects change their position they can appear to be at different distances. Changes in position such as the Moon overhead looks farther than the Moon on the horizon. Changes in size., changes in color, changes in brightness, changes in background all affect our visual system. Add confusion and the inherent malleability of ou... [More]

Your just full of it!!! It was the same object. It was low to the ground around 5 feet or so, allowing me to see exactly where it was on the Property. After watching this thing traverse the countryside for about 12 minutes, thinking it was a trespasser, it began to rise in altitude above the ground and then it "jumped" straight at my car. To say I don't know that it was the same object is just nonsense you're making up!  Saying that a person can't tell if an object moves in a fraction of a second is equally ridiculous. For example you can take a laser pointer or any Laser and make the point o... [More]

Everything Stereo politely explained is correct.  He's not 'full of it', and frankly, the 3 exclamation marks just make you sound even more petulant and childish. Yes, you have a memory.  That's it.  Cool story bro.  Progress does not continue with anecdotes and stories.  People do make errors and have false memories, so how about you just toughen up and apply the same level of scrutiny to your own claim as you would to anyone else's. Especially when that claim involves *nothing* testable or useful or evidenced in any way whatsoever - just what is the point of agonising over remembered '... [More]

It is becoming abundantly clear that you are pretending to have super powers. You don't. It is impossible for you or anyone to determine a duration under a tenth of a second. There are all sorts of ways people are tricked and your entrenched behavior simply tells me that you don't know what  you saw and you have invented this fantasy to pretend that you were not confused. The ridiculous person is the person claiming super powers in determining the length of a duration. It is a complete fiction that people can see instantaneous movement. You really need to learn a little about how humans and o... [More]

Zeta Grays had a base on Ganymede. They were kicked off.

You say “kicked off”, I say “the Doctor gave them a stern telling to and then blew up their base to illustrate her point”.

This came up.    Not proof of aliens.  Unless your saying Harry Potter is an alien documentary.  No they were obliterated. The death star is hiding at saturn disguised as Mimas.  Can't see that happening. This supposed new doctor is a weak farcical spin off. She couldnt blow up a paper bag unless she had already seen Matt Smith or David Tennant do it.
