Flying saucers, alleged crashes and related reports of high strangeness will all be front and center Thursday, Aug. 8, when members of the UFO community hold some special online events. Blogger and well known skeptic Robert Sheaffer explained Monday in his post, ‘Before the Great Debate: My Review of ‘The Aztec Incident”, that he will debate ufology staple Stanton Friedman Thursday at 8 p.m. EST. The event will be carried live by the Revolution Radio Network.

Stanton Friedman is a physicist who has long contended that some UFOs are likely extraterrestrial spacecraft. He is a writer, frequent speaker at UFO conferences and well known for his perspectives supporting ET involvement in such cases as Roswell and the alleged abduction of the Hills.

Robert Sheaffer is a writer, skeptical investigator of UFOs and founding member of the UFO Subcommittee of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. The legitimacy of alleged UFO crashes are certain to be addressed during the debate, Mr. Sheaffer wrote Monday.

API and Doubtful News hold a Google Hangout

Prior to the great debate, Antonio Paris of Aerial Phenomenon Investigations (API) and Sharon Hill of Doubtful News will conduct a Google Hangout. The event will be held from 7-8 p.m. EST and include a session for questions and answers. More details are available on the API website.

Mr. Paris is the founder and director of API, an organization set to bring more science to the study of UFOs. He is a former U.S. intelligence officer and author of the recently released book, ‘Aerial Phenomena: Reviving Ufology for the 21st Century’, which offers a look into the API investigative process, summaries of some 50 completed cases and the author’s vision for reviving ufology.

Ms. Hill is a geologist, leading skeptic and paranormal researcher. She is editor of Doubtful News and author of a 2010 thesis, ‘Being Scientifical: Popularity, Purpose and Promotion of Amateur Research and Investigation Groups in the U.S.’. The thesis was explored along with comments obtained from Hill in a blog post at The UFO Trail, ‘Sham Inquiry Run Riot’.

Interested parties might choose to mark their calendars, have snacks on hand and plan on settling in for an evening of special online events. It might indeed prove to be quite interesting.

UFO investigations in U.K. provided “no valuable defense output”

June 21, 2013

By Sharon Hill, Doubtful News

The government DOES try to address UFO sightings but finds they aren’t worth pursuing. Why did the U.K. UFO reporting center close? For a similar reason why the U.S. version closed. It was not helpful. In a briefing for the then defence minister, Bob Ainsworth, in November 2009 a civil servant, Carl Mantell of the RAF’s Air Command, suggested the MoD should try to significantly reduce the UFO work. He said it was “consuming increasing resource, but produces no valuable defence output”. Read more at Doubful News.
