- Peer review and skepticism help people to refine their
arguments and seek better evidence. I welcome testing my interpretations
by fire. But we all know that skeptics come in various sizes, shapes,
attitudes, and IQs, and their involvement ranges from wanting to improve
interpretations (constructive criticism) to their wanting to limit them
to their own beliefs (negative criticism). The latter category is the
most frustrating, because challenging a person's beliefs often results
in butting one's head against a brick wall.
- On 25 January 1997 John Macedo, Jr. and Bruce Cornet
traveled to Pine Bush, New York, in search of AOP. That evening was one
of the best encounters Cornet had in his seven years of investigation,
because it was a demonstration by three different types of AOP, each one
designed to test the ability of human perception and understanding. Their
flight paths, speeds, navigation lights, strobe patterns, sounds, and
actions were anything but conventional. All three ended the event by
slowly descending below tree top level over Lake Osiris.
- Many of us have heard the statement, "If ET technology
is sufficiently advanced from our own, it will appear to us as magic."
In other words, we can be fooled. But few people think that they can
be fooled when it comes to their own personal experiences. That is why
magic shows are so entertaining. That is also why a lot of scientific
data must be collected which can be analyzed independently by various
scientists in order to get past the deception (usually self-imposed).
If ET is here visiting Earth, it is highly likely that they will want
to be "low observable" outside of intentional performances.
The military is very familiar with this concept, with camouflage, and
with justifications for using it, but few skeptics seem to be prepared
for possible ET deception in its various forms.
- Back in 1997 I posted on the internet images I captured
on video of the Pine Bush FT. These are the best images ever taken of
this enigmatic object, first brought to the public's attention by Ellen
Crystall in her book, Silent Invasion. Several webmasters put my images
up on their websites (e.g. http://www.qtm.net/~geibdan/newsd/cornet/cornet.html).
It wasn't long before skeptics began taking pot shots at those images,
claiming that all I saw was a conventional jetliner. They misinterpreted
reflections off of booms sticking out front as reflections off of a conventional
aircraft fuselage. Guess why the booms may have been put on that craft?
- Technology, my skills at html, and cost for server space
had not progressed to the point that I could put more data from that evening
onto the internet. Things have changed. I recently published a series
of web pages containing dozens of images, graphs, maps, animations, and
movies of that spectacular night near Pine Bush, NY.
- When taken individually and out of context from the
entire sequence of events and with the exclusion of other anomalous data,
it is understandable how some skeptics might jump to conclusions about
the identity of these three AOP. This exercise in data analysis is important
in that it shows how additional data and careful analysis can help eliminate
wrong interpretations. http://members.xoom.com/cornetbr1/landing.htm
