UFO Conjectures

Google Alerts offers Roswell "Breakthrough" -- but is it?




  • Rich, didn't Kevin Randle touch on this story a few weeks ago? That Dr. Scott is affiliated with MUFON is enough to sound warning bells.

  • MUFON was tagged because of that racist comment from one of its imprimatured members.

    I don't know what Dr. Scott's position is, but anything that says "breakthrough for Roswell" is suspect, whether from the halls of MUFON or anywhere else, even the Vatican.

  • Hello,
    it seems to me that any ufological breakthrough is like the end of the world, always coming but never gets here...
    Sorry it´s been such a long time I last commented but I´ve had all kinds of problems, nothing serious really just some health problems and a fire where I lost lot of my books, so I´ve been rather pissed off and it kind of hurts to see other people discussing about interesting (comparative religion, history of christianity, philosophy, paranormal...)books.
    But nice to see there´s still conversation here. I missed this blog. I promise to be more active from now on!

  • Jerry...

    We wondered what happened to you and you have my condolences for your book loss, and sorry to hear about some health issues.

    But you've recovered and that gives me joy.

    If you need a book or two, let me know. I have extras.

    Glad you're back, and ready to have at it again.

  • Yes it is! To many Whitness described strange Bodies the never could born on Earth. I think the memories of the Bodies are correct because People unusual events Stay longer in Memory as normal Events. That is scientific prove. We all now know what we did on 9/11 but we dont know what we are did at last Week or Month and so...

  • > People unusual events Stay longer in Memory as normal Events

    Not true, Michael. Several studies have shown that memories for even famous events will change over time (e.g. O.J. Simpson trial, space shuttle disaster, 9/11) though people may have watched video clips several times, read many articles, and discussed the details with friends.

  • Just to back up Terry's comment.

    Memories can be fragile over time as they tend to mentally disintegrate. We see this in various UFO cases where the star witness changes his/her accounting of the event some years later...this is not unusual and is quite normal.

    The danger lies in the attempt to recall past events during the process of providing some degree of clarity and other aspects are added to the memory. This sets the stage for confabulation.

    We see confabulation in effect when one looks at the witnesses of the JFK assassination. We certainly see confabulation at work when looking at the Roswell incident, as well as other high profile UFO cases.

  • Terry and Tim:

    Michael's point can't be dismissed so easily.

    Core memory remains intact and essentially (essentially) correct in its remembrance.

    While detail may be skewed -- and those details may be important, surely -- the essence of what is remembered is true and pretty much accurate.

    Freud dealt with this (disingenuously as my friend Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson discovered) in his child molestation studies of the 1800s.

    What is remembered is intact, with caveats.

    (I'll do something on this shortly.)

  • Rich,

    thanks, it´s nice to know that someone cares. I feel I´m much better know.
    Let´s keep an eye on those flying saucers, I think there´s something we haven´t yet seen : )

  • Jerry...

    I see you are back and full of vim and vigor.

    Looking forward to your resurgence here.
