Hi Greg

Did Carter ever say that he saw an alien spaceship? If he didn't
- and I don't recall reading that he did - he isn't really back-
peddling, is he? He says here that all he saw was literally an
unidentified flying object, he didn't know what it was. Hasn't
that always been his position?

As for the above, "Hallelujah!" But we've scarcely cleaned up
our lost lunch after the latest disgusting exhibition of
exploitative crud-mongering by Hoagland, and even as we speak
yet another batch of fatuous "lunar anomalies" is promoted in
another post on this List, invisible "hangars" and "mining
operations" as firmly grounded in reality as the Man in the Moon
but helpfully accompanied by line drawings "to help train your
eyes" so that you too can eventually make out  the power plants
and space ports "I can so easily identify" in these blobs of
random shadow.

Meanwhile NASA and the entire international scientific community
continues to suppress The Truth about our spaceship moon, the
verdant paradise that is Mars, revolutionary forbidden physics
and bunkers full of crashed aliens.

What hope of sanity?

Against this background, what chance of a rational scientific
appraisal of eyewitness evidence of things seen in the sky?

Frankly it's asking a lot of the most benevolent sceptic.

Ignoring it all does maybe invite the risk of one day throwing
out a real baby with these oceans of filthy bathwater. But a
depressing history says it's a very tiny risk. Meanwhile a
ufology that chooses to wallow in the same scum becomes
increasingly its own worst enemy.
