Re: Remember the Gaither Report and the Missile Gap?
I remember when I was a teenager, I used to love reading materials on UFOs along with crypto zoology. Was a big fan of the Leonard Nimoy show In Search Of.
As I grew older, I realized how many of these 'sightings' and associated material were heavily biased to give the impression of something fantastic. When in fact, the actual evidence was far more terrestrial in nature.
The real stupidity comes from some of the crazy claims about things like the Tolima 'fighter jets' or Ezekiel's Wheel. Whether or not other sightings have any veracity to them is suspect to me. Eye-witness reports are often quite unreliable.
By the way, for anyone that might be interested, there is a great video on Youtube that debunks that moronic show 'Ancient Aliens'. Link is here:
