Is UFOlogy Dead? : Do We Even Want To Ask?

Noticing a lot of UFO pundits posing the question: is ufology dead? Oy. Here we go again. This question gets asked every now and then. The question raises another question: Why does one believe UFOlogy is "dead" in the first place? A lack of, … what, that causes one to ask the question.

And maybe UFOlogy isn't "dead" so much as it is dormant. Like the Phoenix, it rises again, renewed.

Classic cases remain unsolved. The whole thing remains unsolved. As in, what are they, who are they, what do they want, how are we connected . . .

Because the questions are unanswered -- at least to a global community agreement -- some consider UFOlogy as "dead."

Things change, while remaining the same. True of all, certainly of the UFO realm. Maybe what's "dead" is us, not "it." We're not asking the right questions, we're still eating our own, and stubbornly clinging to assumptions. We're still drawing lines in the sand about what is all right to consider, and what is too far out, kooky, embarrassing.

"Here we go again."

Indeed. Thing is, that the only people saying this are those who have been around less than 10 years and think they know (or contribute) anything of value to the discussion. The same ones who clamor for 'reform' while being blissfully unaware that it won't happen. Ever. Because it can't.

Your post is absolutely right. I would argue that it's not dormant though - the real questions are being willfully ignored in exchange for feigned outrage. They're more interested in yelling from rooftops than the subject itself.

I agree that that is true a majority of the time!
