Wanted: A Science of UFOs | Alexander Wendt | TEDxColumbus
Source | YouTube | TEDx Talks
If any UFOs proved to be extra-terrestrial it would be one of the most important events in human history. Yet there has long been a taboo in modern society on taking UFOs seriously, which has blocked any systematic science to try to determine what they are. Skeptics will say that is because UFOs do not exist, but the US Navy has recently confirmed that they do, and is making an official policy change to reflect this fact, from ignoring its pilots’ UFO encounters to requiring them to file reports. Yet even with the Navy’s revelation, the UFO taboo remains so strong that the scientific community continues to show no interest in whether or not UFOs are ETs.
