Not Of This Earth
By William Pullin, UFO Historian
Greetings! The Search. UFO research should be an unbiased investigation into the problem of unidentified flying objects and the events reported that involve them. UFO research is not, and should never be, an effort to confirm anyone’s personal belief structure; it is strictly a search for answers to the UFO problem. We all should be more accepting of the results of objective investigations, no matter what the results may or may not show. Far too often UFO researchers and UFO witnesses are looking for confirmation of their own belief structure, overlooking and/or not accepting data or investigative results which contradicts said belief structures. Not good enough! We all need to be flexible enough to change our minds, accept contrary conclusions, and admit when we are simply wrong. There is not enough space available here to convey how many times I have been wrong, or off base with my conclusions. There is not enough space available here to convey how many times I have said “I don’t know” on the air, or in a blog posting, or to a UFO witness or fellow UFO researcher. I wish more people would become as flexible with their thinking. Thank you for your precious time and interest.
