I was channel surfing the other night and came onto a commercial for an upcoming program about a woman who had been abducted and murdered. What caught my attention was that they showed the woman using an ATM, walking in a mall, and later in her car and what looked like the arm of a man who had hidden in the backseat. In other words, her activities on that day had been documented to what I think of as a frightening extent. Nearly her every action was caught on video equipment; all used legally, all installed for safety, and putting all our lives under scrutiny.
I’ve seen the same thing on other programs. Police or federal agencies attempting to solve a crime or disappearance, use video from multiple sources to help establish a time line. Criminals are identified, crimes are solved, and more video cameras are installed everywhere.
Big Brother is now watching us all.
What, you might ask, has that to do with UFOs, the paranormal or the purpose of this blog…
Simple. With all those cameras everywhere, recording practically everything from meteor falls, aircraft accidents, to bizarre plays on athletic fields and incredible coincidences, you might ask, where are the UFOs?
And that’s the point. If UFOs are visiting with the regularity that is expressed here and in other forums, where are the good pictures and videos? I have said for years that one of the best UFO cases would be one where there are multiple photographs taken from multiple locations all independently of one another. We would have multiple witnesses, multiple chains of evidence and the ability to triangulate to determine the size of the object, the distance from the cameras, and the speed of the craft. With that sort of evidence it would be difficult to argue against alien visitation. It would take an elaborate conspiracy to pull off something like that because of all the ways to check the evidence.

the Grand Tetons in Wyoming.
I have seen multiple videos of meteor falls. These are rare events that last but seconds and yet we see video of them all the time now. I remember one sequence from a number of security cameras and dashboard cameras that showed quite a bit of a fall from those different angles but we have nothing like that for UFOs…
Yes, I know the argument that these meteors are high in the sky and visible over a large area giving off lots of light, and that the UFOs are closer to the ground and not quite so bright, but still… we should have something like that by now and we don’t. Instead we’re treated to many dubious UFO videos that are often admitted to be fakes or pictures that when scrutinized carefully reveal the real nature of the object.
The point is this… the growing lack of these videos begins to argue against alien visitation. Oh, you can suggest that there are not as many UFOs flying around as we suspected so the opportunities for video are reduced, but there comes a point where that argument fails. We do have some good movie footage taken more than a half century ago, but the objects or lights simply are not resolved to the point where we can declare them alien. And there are pictures in which there are only two conclusions to be drawn, the object is either an alien craft or it is a hoax. But there is no way in the world today to answer that question because the evidence is just not contained on the photographs to make that sort of determination. (And yes, again, I understand that Occam would say it must be a hoax given our knowledge.)
I find this lack of good, multiple angle videos to be disturbing and anyone who is interested in UFOs should find the same thing, unless, of course, you believe that like vampires whose reflections don’t appear in mirrors, that the real UFOs are not visible to the camera lens…
A good, multiple angle, multiple witness video of a UFO would be nice addition to the piles of information collected to date. It just hasn’t happened yet. But maybe it will tomorrow.
