Not Of This Earth
By William Pullin, UFO Historian
Greetings! Discussion??? The examination of data, claims, and evidence is one of the most enjoyable aspects of the search for knowledge. Attempting to discern what is based in reality versus what is invalid, or hoaxed, is vitally important to that cause. Whilst there is a great deal “out there” that can be openly discussed and bandied about, there certainly are topics and concepts which are not open for discussion. We know the planet we live on is a sphere, we know that our entire solar system revolves around the Sun, we know that continental drift is a never-ending process on our planet, and we know that endless numbers of plant and animal species have arisen, and gone extinct throughout Earth’s history. Along these same lines, I happened to come across a post, a link specifically, on Facebook last night which described the alleged discovery of 600 million-year-old fossilized human remains in Antarctica. That claim is patently false!!! All the scientific data we have collected shows that humans have only existed on this planet for a few million years at best; in addition, the Earth’s environment at the time was not capable of sustaining any land animals, much less humans. Not open for discussion!!! Now, how does this pertain to the UFO problem? If we waste precious time discussing unsubstantiated claims which are clearly false, laughable, and embarrassing, we are taking our eye off the ball, and losing focus on the task at hand: The search for answers to the UFO problem. Thank you for your time.
