Boy, was he in for an education. "I would've hoped they would've been more open-minded instead of going ad hominem and calling me clueless and stupid," said Michael from Montgomery, Ala. That's where he teaches nuclear counterproliferation and deterrence theory, at the Air War College, as an associate professor. "I know they categorically reject UFOs, I just didn't know how deep it went." Michael, a relative newcomer to the UFO controversy, apparently passed a Skeptical smell test last year without incident. Intrigued by Stephen Hawking's warnings in 2010 that radio signals might alert galactic conquistadors to the presence of life on Earth, Michael revisited three classes of hypothetical extraterrestrial civilizations proposed by Russian astrophysicist Nikolai Kardashev in the 1960s. His article didn't mention UFOs. Skeptic Magazine published it in 2011. But last week, the spit hit the fan. [More at site... thanks to 'The Norm' for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
