In light of the recent UFO disclosure hearings before the US congress, it is interesting to observe that debate over the UFO phenomenon is as divisive as any of the current political conflicts have been.
More alarmingly, the controversies surrounding UFO disclosures possess many parallels to the controversies regarding everything from the war in Ukraine to fighting climate change.
If ever there was an issue that exposes the willingness or unwillingness of people to accept a narrative purported to be true, it is the alienated issue of UFOs (unidentified flying objects) and the implications of extraterrestrial intelligent life capable of advanced technology.
It’s a polarizing prospect. The nature of the issue forces a binary choice upon those hearing such narratives. Believe. Disbelieve.
Those who claim to maintain an “open mind” on the subject are often permanent skeptics rarely open about what evidence or testimony would sway them one way or the other. By default, this puts them in the “disbelieve” camp since in this context there are no third options. Alien agnosticism still means that the alien proposition has not been accepted.
For most earth-bound human beings any serious discussion about aliens and UFOs is a discussion also alien to the daily concerns of their lives. On the other hand, for those fascinated with the topic and convinced that its implications are profound, the broader lack of interest in so grand a revelation can be both frustrating and infuriating.
When it comes to UFO disclosures, many appear to be anticipating some kind of public reaction that’s Just Right, when in fact there may be no such thing.
