There's No Such Thing as a UFO

UFONaturally an article called, “UFOs Do Not Exist” caught my attention, especially when it’s in UFO Digest. But being a big believer in extra-terrestrial intelligence myself, it seems UFO’s really don’t exist. Of course! I don’t know why I didn’t realize it before.

What thousands of people report as UFOs are actually “IFOs” (Identified Flying Objects) or “IPFOs” (Intelligently Piloted Flying Objects). If they aren’t part of some sort of military project, or the creation of pranksters with lots of money and serious engineering capabilities, then we should know exactly what they are, right? What we should be doing is questioning what’s inside.

So I guess when skeptics disregard the claims of “IFO” witnesses, what they’re really unsure of is the existence of UIPIFOs (Unidentified Intelligent Pilots of Identified Flying Objects).

That was a mouthful. Maybe I’ll just stick to using “UFO.” Plus, I think I’d get more strange looks if I said, “I saw a UIPIFO,” should it ever happen.

But according to an uncovered secret Ministry of Defense report, it never will...unless I plan to visit plasma fields anytime in the future.

"Local fields of this type have been medically proven to cause responses in the temporal lobes of the human brain. These result in the observer sustaining his or her own vivid, but mainly incorrect, description of what is experienced.”

One question: why would people hallucinate UFOs?

  1. This is possibly one of the best posts I have ever read. I wouldn't say I believe in UFOs or extraterrestrials, however, a lot of people do claim that they see them. I know this is a little off topic but I was on my way to florida with my parents and we decided for some added fun we would drive there. We stopped in Tennessee and what should we find but a trecky convention!! It was so weird, and people didn't believe me. I thought it was just nuts.
    I feel that people would say they see things when they are in a new space or there is something going on and they just happen to make up something in their mind. It's just like having a situation where you think you know what happened but every time you say the story or think about it, new things add to the story!
    THought I would share!

  2. I don't get why it is so hard for some people to believe there is other intelligent life in the universe. Let alone some other intelligent life that has better developed technology than us.

    I don't know what we can call UFO sightings, but every one is not a prank or a weather balloon. I'm sure our militaries do have secret projects, but I think we can consider it safe to assume that there is some extra-terrestrial life.

  3. I agree, I dont understand why it is so hard for people to believe in intelligent life outside our planet or out side our solar system or out side our galaxy. I guess that the so call faith in a book blinds them for the obvious.

  4. I have to agree, I am one of those people who needs to see proof before believing anything.

  5. of course, not all the objects that people look in the sky must be starships driven by little green man from Mars...I don't know if my sarcasm was the enough of I need to be more specific.
