Quote of the day—Scott Adams @ScottAdamsSays

They studied people who claim UFO encounters and also mostly work for the government and discovered they often have brain damage.

Then they conclude the correlation is the UFOs, not the working for the government part.

I’m leaning the other way.

[Adams is referring to this article.in the New York Post which is actually from the The U.S. Sun.

If only belief in the universal utility of government were as rare as the belief in UFOs the world would be a much better place. Sadly, that is not the case.

And getting more serious for a bit… Correlation does not mean causation. The working for the government correlation is almost for certain a sample bias. The scans from government workers were available for study rather than the scans of people’s brains who had UFO encounters turned out to mostly work for the government.—Joe]

  1. As government has the most advanced detection equipment being used in the world. And UFO’s are secret government programs. Flying them by your own ships and airplanes would be the natural way to test them and your systems.
    And be able to control the info being reported about them.
    The only thing certain is that whatever the government tells you about them will be a lie. Guaranteed.
    And if they are talking it’s about something, they’ve already been playing with it for 50 years.
    Brain scans or no.

  2. Assuming that one iota of this is presented as serious, and not as an Onion-esque article from the U.S. Sun, here’s the total deal killer for me;
    “Nolan published a paper titled ‘Whole-genome sequencing of Atacama skeleton shows novel mutations linked with dysplasia’ — which led the professor to be contacted by people linked to the CIA and various aeronautics corporations.”

    Err, the CIA doesn’t care about diseases found in archeological specimens. Archeologists and biologists do. And certainly there’s no reason for an “aeronautics corporation” to want to get involved (“How do we make better airplanes? Study old, diseased skeletons, of course!”).

    So as far as I’m concerned it’s some of most badly written, worthless click bait ever. Better would be to show some puppies and kittens doing strangely silly things.

    The primary question the I have in all of this is, Who reads this crap, and why? Legitimate science may be difficult to find, I’ll admit, especially given the amounts of free money involved, but it’s not THAT difficult.
