Noted Researcher Urges New Scientific Study of UFOs (note the source)
Market Watch/Wall St Journal ^ | 6/26/2012

Posted on 06/26/2012 12:22:28 PM PDT by RoosterRedux

UFO researcher Robert Hastings recently addressed The Society for Scientific Exploration's 31st Annual Conference here. His presentation, "Unexplained Aerial Incursions at Nuclear Weapons Sites Demand a Renewed Scientific Interest in the UFO Phenomenon," examined declassified U.S. government documents confirming ongoing UFO activity at American nukes-related facilities since 1948.

In September 2010, Hastings' "UFOs and Nukes" press conference drew worldwide media coverage when seven U.S. Air Force veterans revealed dramatic incidents during which several ICBMs mysteriously malfunctioned just as disc-shaped craft were observed hovering near them.

CNN streamed the press event live:

Following the conference in Boulder, Hastings said:

"Among the 130 veterans I have interviewed are nuclear missile launch officers who report UFOs monitoring and even disabling their weapons. To dismiss these accounts as mere fantasies or fabrications is to suggest that those who held the fate of the entire planet in their hands during the Cold War were dangerously demented or otherwise untrustworthy. Surely, this was not the case. Similar incidents have been revealed by Soviet military veterans.

I often use the “Space Aliens committed 911” against truthers to try and out-kook them. Blaming things on Space Aliens is a convenient way of not having to explain a lack of evidence.

I would believe Angels of the Most High God intervening to protect us from nuclear accidents before I would believe aliens - but that's just me - others may have a different opinion - ;p

The "Pepp Aeroshell," shown here at the White Sands Missile Range park, was used to test the parachute that NASA planned to use to "soft land" the Viking spacecraft on Mars.

It and its predecessor test craft probably explain about 99% of the "flying saucer" sightings in the western U.S. in the 1950s and 1960s.

As an aside, you’ve got to admire that guy for his “do.” It takes a lot of courage or gumption or something to be televised with that pile of hair.

I have to admit that I have wondered a few times if the real reason we (humans) haven’t blow each other (ourselves) up with nuclear weapons might just be...that we weren’t allowed to.

Considering that the UFO craze began in the 50s as the US was testing all kinds of secret rockets and aircraft, I think a huge number of ‘sightings’ can be explained in such a manner.

40 days to touchdown on Mars. Seems like an overcomplicated landing procedure but I understand why. I’m a little surprised this one isn’t getting more press.

Every time I see that guy, it looks like a UFO just took off in his hair - but he does have a lot of hair, lol.

Henceforth, I will have a hard time believing these sightings are anything other than drones from some government somewhere. I don’t know how long ago the black ops around the world produced the first drones but I am quite sure it was long before I heard of them.

I would rather funnel the money used to fight global warming to UFO studies. If we find intelligent life they can help us fix the problem. If we don’t find intelligent life it would be money better spent.

I am continuously surprised that people have failed to make the obvious connection between UFO’s and Bigfoot.

I think ghosts would be a better subject to study. There are many more people who claim to have seen ghosts than have seen UFOs or climate data that suggests man made global warming. Plus children are much more afraid of ghosts.

WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

Good point. We could split it between UFO’s, ghosts, big foot and Nellie.

Not as stupid as studying alien invasions from the outer reaches of space! But Stupid, YES!

Apparently these things - whatever they are - tend to hover over nuclear silos.

One is reminded of the activities of Chekhov and Uhura in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, crouched in concealment catching photons from the reactor of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise in order to restore the drive system of their captured Klingon bird of prey...

Yes, sorry - Trekkie here.

According to psychologists and psychiatrists who treat those who believe they have been abducted...there are millions upon millions.

But are their experiences of abduction the result of lucid dreams or are they real?

I have no idea.

But if one reads the work of John Mack of Harvard, Budd Hopkins, or David Jacobs of Temple Univ, one understands that whatever is going on is either real...or virtual reality.

To deny these experiences outright points to an ignorance of study or an unwilling to apply the rigors of investigation out of fear.

I don't have the answer...but denial that something is happening is, well, supposition arrived at because of fear. In short, it is simple psychological denial!

You are not afraid, are you?

BTW Jim...I am quite afraid. What I fear might be possible is not only possible...but it might be prevalent.

Though I am afraid...I will not give in to fear. I know the answer.

Ask me and I will tell you how to protect yourself from this alien attack.

FWIW, this attack (I believe) is not alien (well, in a way it is). It is demonic.

And there is only one way out...only one cure!
