As I peruse the latest UFO news stories online, I find at least 98% are comprised of hoaxed videos or images. Many of the images are obvious drones, aircraft, balloons, poorly, homemade aliens or phony UFOs. It’s no wonder that so many think of those who research the unknown as crackpots or rip-off artists of the lowest grade.
Unfortunately, for many it appears that UFO research is just a way to scam the public, and if lucky, pick up some revenue on ad hits generated by phony UFO videos of photos. One could however make a strong argument that this is what the public wants and that most of them are so dumb downed that they are incapable of the intellect needed for the logical digestion of real UFO research and in fact only want to be entertained or shocked like children going to a house of horrors at a carnival.
The great journalist from Baltimore, Md., H. L Mencken, put it best in his full quote lamenting the popularity of tabloid newspapers and yellow journalism in his time, which would be the equivalent of “fake news” and the UFO hoaxes and made-up alien abduction stories of today.
Mencken said: “No one in this world, so far as I know — and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me — has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.”
Reports of UFO Abductions Are Replete
What really makes it difficult for serious UFO researchers is the abundance of people who come forward daily and claim they have been abducted by aliens, with some saying they have been in contact with said aliens for decades — or even since birth. While some of these experiences could be true, it’s amazing how you never hear about them until the abductee is making the media rounds pitching an often self-published book.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that all alien abduction stories are false and hoaxed. But what I am saying is that legitimate abduction events with some documentation and evidence are rare indeed. In fact, I can count them on one hand. And even those are not 100% provable, with only a couple actually being what I consider probable.
If you really think about it: couldn’t an advanced alien civilization simple tap into the computers of our leading scientific, medical and historic data banks and collect within a few seconds a trove of physical, psychological and historical information about humankind? Would ET really have to pick up the average John Smith or Jane Doe from a local trailer park to find out what made mankind tick? Unless ET needed an in-the-field blood or semen specimen, or needed live humans for some other unknown reason, why would aliens take the risk of exposing themselves? Doesn’t seem plausible, efficient or logical to me that a civilization eons ahead of us would bother to do that. But that’s just me.
They are Something Else
Now, I am not saying that all UFOs and alien abduction cases are false. But in order to find the real ones, which are very rare, it would be easier if there weren’t so many fake ones being manufactured every day. One recent case that comes to mind is a video of a flock of seagulls reflecting light being portrayed as a flap of UFOs. Please! This only hurts any search for what is really behind the UFO and Alien phenomenon. The is why at Unknown Boundaries, the majority of our stories are backed by legitimate government or first-person documentation.
