ETs, UFOs And The Psychology Of Belief
By Michael Clark

ETs And UFOs

The acronym ET (extraterrestrial) points to the idea that living
organisms might exist somewhere beyond our Earth. And the
acronym UFO (unidentified flying object) means that something
unidentified appears in the sky.

Sometimes UFOs are eventually identified as a weather balloon,
parachute or jet plane, so a mystery becomes an ordinary event.=B9
But other times we never understand what's up there. When we
can't understand, it's tempting to see a UFO as an alien
spacecraft piloted by creatures from the far reaches of the

The distinction between UFOs and ETs isn't ironclad. Again, the
U in UFO stands for unidentified, and it's possible that some
UFOs could be ETs. During World War II, for instance, airborne
glowing balls were observed and photographed by Allied pilots.
These phenomena came to be called Foo Fighters (the rock band
came later=85), and suggest that some UFOs might be intelligent
life forms. The life forms might not be as we normally
understand them. They'd be more like those energy creatures we
see in Star Trek and other science fiction stories. And they'd
probably be able to survive any kind of atmospheric conditions.
