UFO Congress Had Good Amount Of Skepticism, But More Is Needed
Lee Speigel

There was a time when UFO conventions or seminars only drew the
lunatic fringe audience - those who believe benevolent
extraterrestrial beings are watching over us, to make sure
Mankind doesn't destroy itself through warfare and bad decisions
affecting planetary climate.

At the recent 21st annual 2012 International UFO Congress near
Scottsdale, Ariz., there was certainly some of that purchase-an-
ET-trinket mentality.

But during my visit, I observed something else more telling: not
everyone present was a UFO fanatic.

Under the well tuned guiding arm of Open Minds Production, the
IUFOC was truly an international event as nearly 2000 folks from
around the world attended the six-day festivities.

I've been to other UFO conventions that catered to the out-of-
this-world element, but was impressed with several aspects of
this event.

Skepticism was welcome here. There was arch skeptic Robert
Sheaffer's daily critical observations as he wandered in and out
of the main speakers and vendors rooms.

In my own presentation, I urged the audience not to believe
every UFO item they hear about on the news, in magazines and,
especially, online.
