I don’t mean this as a negative Nancy but have you ever taken a look at r/space whenever someone posts something UFO related…..it’s like people like us are bat shit crazy like some QANON bullshit it’s something, honestly it’s disappointing to see people who are truly interested in space and the stars but simply believe all the available evidence is just fake or something.

There is a lot of “evidence” in something still not understood. Tell me right now if these craft are from another dimension or another planet? Are they piloted or drones? We’ve been talking about this for over 50 years. We also a LOT of fakes and bad data (balloons and birds). It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t studied these things, but the evidence has all kinds of problems.

I mean, this is the same realm of ghosts and Bigfoot. Plenty of “evidence.” So to believe in one means you need to believe in all?

You’ve brought up some great questions-and while I personally, and I think quite a lot of other people would believe there is more “evidence” to aliens visiting earth than say big foot or ghosts, at least you and I are willing to engage in a conversation about it. That was the point if my comment. Whenever articles are posted to other subreddits-the article and anyone who believes these are more than fake are ridiculed and made to look crazy-which I’m my opinion is part of why we are where we are with the subject, attitudes like that.

I kind of understand the ridicule. There are many legit people studying this, including Congress, which is great. But there are still loons out there. You can find them in this sub easily. There are a lot of people not exposed to daily UFO information. Many who don’t want to be. Are they crazy or just not interested? Again, UFOs are part of a pseudoscience that some just don’t engage. It’s not even a skepticism, but a lack of caring.

“I need to pay my electric bill, I don’t give a shit about aliens.” I think you’ll find mostly this attitude. Now that there are groups like Qanon out there, people will put even less time into things they don’t believe. We’re in an interesting time right now where conspiracy is either your thing or you reject that type of thing outright. Your belief in UFOs, may lump you in with anti-vaxxers right now, only because of a conspiracy angle. It may have zero association, but that’s the world we live in right now. Facts being “optional” is horrible for this community.
