Skeptics and UFOs
Posted by lamarzulli on November 6, 2008
“Do you realize that none of our friends really believe, in what you write about?”
I took a sip from my coffee mug, and replied, “You really think so?”
She nodded the affirmative.
Then I remembered a ‘friend’ of mine telling me after he read Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural, that if he didn’t know me, he would assume that the author was, “One sandwich short of a picnic.” Thanks a lot. I feel so reassured.
Take another look at the picture. A few hundred years ago, people believed the world was flat, period. The skeptics of the day mocked those like Columbus who believed otherwise. It was the prevailing wisdom of the day. It’s not much different now.
Until just recently UFOs were not reported in the main stream media and when they were it was tongue and cheek. A classic example of this is former Governor Fife Symington and his official press conference regarding the mass sightings of the Phoenix lights. He had a guy in an alien costume parade around in front of the cameras and yucked it up for the press. Meanwhile thousands of Arizonians, who had seen the phenomena were insulted. A few years later, on the Larry King Live show, Symington apologized.
It seems that no matter how many reports by credible witnesses are filed – by witnesses I mean police officers – it’s never good enough. Even video, like that which was shot a few years back in Mexico during the eclipse. Over 15 seperate people took videos, from different locations, of the UFOs the appeared that day. Yet the skeptics dismiss it as a flock of birds, or malfunctioning of the camera lens, or my favorite, Venus.
My wife is right though. We don’t talk about the UFO phenomena, to many of our friends. Some of them just don’t want to hear about it. Others become agitated and argumentative. Others smirk and say, “Do you really believe in that?” Still there are those who get frightened and have nightmares when I tell them about the connection with Biblical prophecy and the return of the Nephilim. I have said this before. If something else was manifesting, I’d be writing about that.
When we examine the phenomena, that is occurring almost daily, in our skies, we must begin to come to grips with it. Last week the United Kingdom released, classified documents, on their UFO sightings. This made international headlines, yet, most of the people that I came in contact with, just shrugged it off. “Oh well, just another day, where’s my Starbucks?”
It will take an event that is in broad daylight, where a UFO hovers over a city, and just hangs there, for hours, allowing it to be filmed, in order for the skeptic to believe. Even then, there will be some who will doubt it. I’ve said it before and I’ll use this famous quote to close today’s BLOG.
For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not believe , no explanation is possible.
