I maintain that Elizondo could not have released the Nimitz tic-tac videos without the Pentagon’s permission.

The Pentagon is controlling this UFO release on the public in a very slow way.

The public is being experimented on to find out their reaction.

The Pentagon has announced it has a prototype of 6th generation fighter jet, supposedly not anything seen before.

Rumors are it can fly itself if needed, and beside launching weapons it can also launch drones.

The Pentagon claims the prototype has actually flown in tests.

Would they be testing this plane at Area 51 causing UFO sightings ?

A slight aside, the UKs latest fighter aircraft the Typhoon cannot be flown without tje onboard computer systems as it is too complicated to control all the systems which keep it airborne manually

"The Eurofighter is designed to be intentionally aerodynamically unstable. This makes it more agile, particularly at supersonic speeds; reduces drag; and gives it an overall increase in lift. However, this also means it can't be flown without the computerised Flight Control System."

The Mick West videos are really good and confirm my own suspicions of what is going on. Misidentification and obfuscation by the military then hushed to secrecy. But why would they do this?
When the US says it is prepared to do clinical surgical strikes on targets, it’s not a good look if their equipment is perceived to be faulty and prone to error. It’s also not good that pilots relying heavily on enemy identification are being confused by balloons. Especially when you consider the payload these planes are carrying.
In the case of a Chilean UFO event, West has used sensible, logical, experimental approach using air traffic flight records, weather reports and simulation of the technology to reach a conclusion to find which ACTUAL plane is the alleged UFO - right down to the identification number.
Contrast this to the approach which says these are extraterrestrial craft from another planet with technology that can run rings around our planes, defy physics as we know it, yet can behave exactly like a balloon moving slowly with a parallax effect.

Watch West with his homespun, yet convincing riposte to the alien origin of these sightings.

While I’m on... I’ll add something about our inner mind arrogance as a species. Many assume that ET has nothing better to do than idly fly around earth with the lights on to spook us out. In truth, we’re probably really not that special. If we’re not the only intelligent species in the Universe... which is highly plausible, there must be WAY more interesting species and cultures out there to monitor. This is the probably the reason why a petri dish of bacteria is not a test card on our TV. So if we assume the population of this planet is 7.7 billion, there are billions and billions of planets in the universe. If we count, on this planet, the amount of people who are prepared to make a career of observing an ant nest for the whole of their lifetime, we are dealing with a very specialist field. If we factor in the amount of people who can go to another planet and look for an ant nest on Mars....that’s extremely limited. Whatever planet is out there exploring has billions and billions amounts of observable data to collect yet people here claim to see UFOs everyday and twice on Saturdays. Some would have us think that UFOs are multidimensional which raises the strike rate of them actually finding, locating and monitoring us even further out to a number that is almost beyond calculation.

But it’s all about US isn’t it?

Overall, West’s exploration of these sightings holds water where the belief, fantasy and wish-fulfilment of true believers doesn’t really add up to much more than indulging a fantasy. And that’s why there’s not going to be a disclosure.

So, you are suggesting that every one of the witnesses is mistaken or lying throughout the history of the phenomenon? All of the military and civilian encounters including things like object flying in formation off the wings of aircraft for extended periods, all of the recent testimony from pilots etc. (And I assume you would lump in the '40s, '50s, '80s etc.) Are all examples of military incompetence that didn't get shushed up properly so they ran all of these studies on it and it is really all mundane stuff or our own aircraft? Folks who have had their minds changed by seeing objects pretty close or watching them through binoculars, theodolites, telescopes and gun sights for extended periods and show signs of trauma are all just enjoying a self-indulgent mind trip? I want you and Mick and others who flit about with skepticism (so that if it does come out that UFOs are from elsewhere, you can claim you were just considering all of the alternatives) --to OWN your skepticism. "True believers" are telling you skeptics "You are wrong, listen to me!" and all they get is disbelief. So own it, and agree to get an "L" tattoo (it can be on your deltoid where it is hidden by a t-shirt) that indicates that you are a Loser in the debate about UFOs, if the government comes out and says we are likely encountering objects that are made somewhere else, i.e. "UFOs are real"..
So, if they say they need to study them more and don't know --then you don't have to get tattoo --(although it would be obvious what was up! :cool:). What say you skeptics? Not just Analogue Boy. I will get an "L" tattoo if they come out and say that they made a mistake and they are all mundane objects like weather balloons or our own craft). come on now! We "True Believers' have wasted a lot of time and energy trying to tell you for all of our own good what is going on, so now is your chance to step up! :badge:
Kudos to you on your bravery, too, given the way things are going for you skeptics, eh? :)
Sign up now and don't be wishy washy, or we'll think you might think they are real!
The specs: the horizontal bar of the L shall be one half the length the stem, the stem being .25" so that it will be small and not easily noticeable.

Well that’s a well-considered reasonable reply.

I'm serious! :) 70+ years of skeptics and believers arguing. It's time the government comes clean. I think everyone is sick of it or bored to death now.

There is good evidence to believe that the US military, among others, has been running a disinformation campaign WRT UFOs for many years now. Leaking easily debunked information is one classic technique among many.

It may well be that there is nothing more to the phenomenon beyond misperception, misinterpretation, inaccurate memories, and lots of disinformation. On the other hand, why would governments spend so much effort muddying the waters? Maybe they fear that something really juicy will leak out?

That's true! And I feel my part t play with UFOs is done. I don't have anything else to say other than what I have already, take it or leave it. I'm confident in the eventual outcome. I do understand the purpose of skepticism for what it's worth; but I think things have reached an impasse without more information, and skeptics and believers should demand to know what is going on -if it is indeed an ET visitation or something stranger, It has been a long time with the phenomenon in the modern era, with endless smoke and mixed messages, right up to today. I used to be open-minded about UFOs nut never thought I would see them, and was in the position of many on this forum, lacking conclusive evidence. The same way I must deal with the humanoid aspect of the phenomenon --I have a hard time accepting it but must be open-minded because of the reports, but I can't allow myself to completely "go there"..

But it’s all about US isn’t it?

What if there are not very many planets with intelligent life, so each planet is worth studying?
What if the other planets have evolved in similar ways, but our's has evolved differently.....perhaps much more slowly than would be presumed, or faster?

Then we become very interesting to study.

This bargain makes no sense from a logical standpoint. Too many opportunities for error.

1/ If there are aliens in our skies, and they are associated with a small fraction of UFOs, then the skeptics get to wear a tattoo.
2/ If there are no aliens in our skies, but the US military declares that there are, the skeptics would wear a tattoo but this would be an error.
3/ If there are aliens in our skies, but the US military declares that there are not, the believers would wear a tattoo but this would be an error.
4/ If there are no aliens in our skies, and the US military declares that there are not, there will still be just as many UFOs as there ever were, so the believers will wear a tattoo despite the continued observation of UFOs. They won't like that. If we can make one prediction about the future, it is that there will always be UFOs, even after we finally make contact with aliens.

As I've said before, the aliens themselves will probably have their own UFO sightings, no matter what kind of sensory equipment they use. And I'm reasonably certain that any real extraterrestrials we encounter will be completely unconnected with our own UFO phenomenon, just as we are unconnected with theirs.

Those things are true, but it can still work based on those two possible statements, and I don't mind wearing a tattoo if the military is in error, if skeptics are still eventually shown to be wrong. I am willing to take that risk. :) I think it is a good bet for me.
1. An admission of non-earthly technology = skeptic get tattoo.
2. Statement that they are in error and they are our own craft = I get tattoo.
Anything else and no one gets tattoo.

Right now I'm hoping Mick or someone over at Metabunk will pay for lie detector tests for me! :) Waiting for him to okay my first post there. I intend to enjoy myself immensely, and am preparing my rubbers for to.. rub things in..

This places far too much reliance on the reliability of the US military to investigate its own sightings. In general, military investigations are just as prone to error as any other type of investigation. Both the Mexican airforce and the Chilean airforce have investigated UFO reports and supported alien interpretations, but they were subsequently found to be wrong.

The US military are not likely to any more competent, especially if they are influenced by delusional individuals like Elizondo, Bigelow and Puthoff.

I am curious what would constitute proof for skeptics; if government scientists can't be trusted, and even things like global warming and many other matters far more mundane are controvertible, then I don't know what would convince some skeptics, aside from an unambiguous personal experience. The problem is the government is probably not going to release extremely damning evidence for obvious reasons, so in this case we would have to rely on their judgement, and I do understand why you are hesitant to do that. Incredibly, I don't currently have a single tattoo --so that would be my first! :p

Eh, they all do that, sir!
Since the agent if fly by wire in the Sixties, it has allowed aircraft design to cope with increasingly unstable platforms to ensure agility.

Everything from the F teen generation onwards has relied on increasing levels of intervention to aid the pilot. The F-16 was regarded as an unstable design.
The Typhoon, Rafael, Gripen, F-22, F-35, J-20, Su-29 and Mig-29 are all unstable designs.

The standard for combat aircraft was to sense and adjust control surfaces around 200 times a second, once hardware caught up.

Now, it can be pretty much whatever is desired.

However, the computer control is merely to keep the aircraft within the performance envelope. It only gives the pilot what the aircraft is capable of, as opposed to stressing it beyond. Think of it more as a very sophisticated ABS on your car, but extended to all aspects of control.

It isn't an AI that decides if the pilot gets to control the plane.

Note that I'm not a skeptic about climate change, or the curvature of the Earth, or the Moon Landings; there is no good reason to doubt those things. But I am very sceptical about the ability of the US military to make a good judgement call on the UAP question, because military authorities have been wrong so many times in the past.

Skeptics can't see the gestalt of the phenomenon. Thousands of witnesses across decades and even centuries have reported the same things people are seeing today, clear sightings sometimes lasting for many minutes or hours, by people from all economic and social backgrounds, with corroborating sightings and radar evidence too, sometimes simultaneously. All of what is happening now reinforces what members of the military and government said decades ago. A number of years ago I left this forum in frustration, and said that eventually the UFO matter would hit the fan and many would go to the crow buffet. Put on your bib, cuz it is ALL coming true :cool:
That would be why I am back.

Because the ink in the tattoo will make people think like him as in his mind the Universe is empty of life outside Earth.
It's a special ink that I will manufacture; depending on how wring skeptics turn out to be we can move the tattoos north and to a more central location :badge:
Like UFOs and paradigm shifts, there have always been those clinging to outmoded paradigms:

2. Doesn't mean it's aliens
3. what who said where and when?

Practical Evidence = 0
Anecdotal evidence = 0
Anecdotes = whatevs

Round and around we go. There is no evidence of interaction with visitors from other star systems and galaxies. There's no evidence. None. That's a fact.
Personal POV: We all want there to be, but to date ... nothing of substance. We are alone, to all intents and purposes. We are all we have. Let's look in. Listen in. Make contact with us.

As deflating as that seems, it's practical.

In '52 the government was forced to hold a press conference about UFOs after they flew back and forth over the US Capitol, were seen by pilots in the air and simultaneously tracked on radar. The pilots could never catch them. If you watch Samford and other's statements, it is quite clear that this is a conversation they didn't want to have, for reasons that are obvious, no matter what you believe. There is no way that all of these government officials want to talk about UFOs with the public again. No matter what you believe it is very hard to see how such a conversation --even without the admission of the reality of UFOs, would be good for the United States of America. Yet something is forcing them to do that --again. It really isn't hard to imagine what that thing is, anymore.

Evidence? You are just wrong. There is a lot. It is just evidence that skeptics won't accept.
You will be shown to be wrong soon. L
