Chris then went on his @MadScientistPod Twitter account and stated, “Hey folks! Taking a step back from commenting on UFO topics except for on the podcast.” Following up with a comment to one of his listeners, “Oh I’m not going to stop talking about this, lol. Just going to better choose how to spend my time, and my audience. Most listeners of the show don’t follow Twitter, and vice versa. But I’m always happy to talk with anyone willing to engage in good faith!”
Chris once told me both on and off air, when I asked him about why mainstream scientists seem to have zero interest in this subject; schooling me on this, he stated that many scientists actually want to know and learn more. However, the fear of being labeled as a “UFO” guy or girl, can have some backlashes within the scientific community and many do not want to risk their livelihoods on a change in their reputation. That being said, Chris did note that we have to remember, many, if not most scientists are sci-fi geeks, who love Star Wars, Star Trek, and scientific type movies that push the edges of theory. He also stated many do believe there’s something beyond the stars, hidden in the forests or some sort of spiritual realm where ghosts venture off to their own world. But in the end, science is science, and the job of science is to take the theories and try and prove the existence. Finding grant money to do so is another subject altogether.
So for people out there to say mainstream science isn’t interested, well that’s simply not true. There are scientists all over this field of research. Now Dr. Cogswell has called out the credentials for some of them, who are more popular or who have recently gained a name for themselves. And you know what? He has that right. His education and experience allow him the right to confirm or critique the scientists and scientific methods of what’s been happening in the UFO field. It’s the same with me, when it comes to journalism in the paranormal realm. I’m going to be more critical of those who are alleging they’re journalists and self-titling themselves, compared to those who’ve actually worked and been educated in the field. Chris’s brain and experience understand that. Hell, you don’t get a doctorate if you’re a dummy.
