It is written that Joshua and his men blew on horns and the
walls came tumbling down. The Bastille of Skepticism is being
stormed by credible UFO witnesses. Holes are appearing in the

Well, maybe!!

Yes, yes, I know. This will last about one news cycle - which
could be less than a day - but it will make a splash.

The witnesses all read prepared statements which, I presume,
will end up on the net, so I won't summarize them here.

James Fox and Leslie Kean are to be congratulated for an
excellent showing of a collection of "high powered" witnesses.
No town drunks or even "plain ordinary people" who can make
mistakes, here. Only trained witnesses who, according to
Magoo/McGaha make mistakes.

Besides the 'plain old' witnesses of distant phenomena - French,
British, Chilean and Japanese pilots - we were treated to an
Iranian pilot who chased a UFO and had his avionics - electronic
instrumentation - temporarily fail when he got too close - about
26 nm according to radar lock-on; this was Jupiter according to
the late Philip Klass. Also a Peruvian pilot who chased and
fired on a UFO and lived to tell about it and an American
serviceman, Penniston, who actually touched a landed UFO at
Rendlesham, accompanied by American Col. Halt who had a plaster
caste of one of the depressions made in the soil.

Kind of hard to dispute some guy who fired cannon from a jet
plane while chasing a UFO. But then, during WWII, we are told,
sometimes pilots fired at Venus, thinking it was relatively
close by. But, how about someone who actually touched a craft,
in the sight of other witnesses. Well, people can make mistakes
and get wrong impressions' when acting under duress - what
duress? There wouldn't have been duress if this thing had been a
normal object sitting on the ground!

Anyway, as long as witnesses of this credibility level keep
coming forward the skeptics will be busy and will probably be
forced, ultimately, to utilize the last resort: the witnesses
are liars.

I got the impression from this press conference that the only
thing that stands between the ufological situation at present
and high levels of acceptance in the future is money. Given
enough money and you can bet that this set James Fox back a
pretty penny, one could get credible witnesses from a couple
dozen of the largest countries on earth and have a real 'United
Nations' sort of press conference with lots of unexplainable
sightings. But all witnesses are untrustworthy, of course. Thus
Spake McGaha!

If this subject achieves a sufficiently high profile I see great
confrontation about to take place between UFO 'skeptics' and
'believers' that would be analogous to the great debate taking
place about global warming:

'Is global warming real?' is compared to 'are UFOs/AFCs real?'
AFC = Alien Flying Craft or whatever you want to call evidence
of NHI, Non-Human Intelligence, flying around in our skies.

I suspect that that a lot of 'blood will be spilt before there
is a final conclusion to either of these debates. On the other
hand, it may take decades or centuries to resolve the global
warming debate, whereas the UFO debate could be completed in a
few years, given enough funding.

But then, there is the danger in getting what you wish for. If
AFC reality is generally accepted, what then? Lots of things are
going to change, as pointed out by me and others on this List in
past years.

We may, in the end, wish we didn't know.
