From: Ray Dickenson <r.dickenson.nul> Date: Thu, 22 Aug 2013 10:28:06 +0100 Archived: Thu, 22 Aug 2013 06:15:15 -0400 Subject: Ufologists - Don't Censor 'Ridiculous' Details Hello List, Just read an opinion of John Keel's: "Ironically, the UFO organizations have, themselves, suppressed and censored more UFO reports than the Air Force" - and he exampled the NICAP suppression of the full report of Betty & Barney Hill's experiences, later revealed by John Fuller (p.262 'Trojan Horse'). I think that's to be expected; folk who set themselves up as 'experts' or 'authorities' in any area tend to be judgemental and not a little opinionated - often with strong biases as to what is 'rational' or 'reasonable'. However Keel, and separately Vallee et al, have several times commented that it's mostly the 'unreasonable' and 'ridiculous' attributes of the phenomenon which end up making coherent patterns, not the myriad prosaic details of events. N.B. - Although we have experts in branches of science pertaining to sightings (optics, nuclear physics etc), and as I'm forced to tell the occasional media quote-seeker: 'There are _no_ human experts on UFOs or their technology'; a fact which should be obvious.
