UFO Societies Closing, Fox Mulder Hardest Hit

Monster of the Week

Cartoon from the stupendous Monster of the Week.

The other day I mentioned that with the unbelievable number of photographs being taken these days that there should be photos aplenty of UFOs, bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster. The fact that there aren’t is strong evidence those things don’t exist. Today this popped up on Instapundit.

The TelegraphUFO enthusiasts admit the truth may not be out there after all:

Enthusiasts admit that a continued failure to provide proof and a decline in the number of “flying saucer” sightings suggests that aliens do not exist after all and could mean the end of “Ufology” – the study of UFOs – within the next decade.

Dozens of groups interested in the flying saucers and other unidentified craft have already closed because of lack of interest and next week one of the country’s foremost organisations involved in UFO research is holding a conference to discuss whether the subject has any future.

    In fairness, THERE are UFO’s and they are just that: “flying stuff we can’t explain”

    Many of them do turn out to be explainable stuff, but the balance are most probably natural phenomena that are wierd, rare and thus difficult to reproduce and study: e.g. Ball lightning.

    Which is a pity. It’d be nice if there were aliens and they were kinda shy and not hunting earth women.
