Moreover, all the effects of global warming were centered, seemingly, directly and most precisely on my exact geographic coordinates. The bugs were held in magical abeyance by the Bounce rag; however, or I would have assuredly been driven indoors. I'm thankful for the potential of an "indoors."
They were all going "away", going "out", or going "extinct." "Abductions were decreasing," some pontificated. "Sightings were way down," others pronounced. Really.
Forgetting for a moment that this got the CSICOPian Shermer/Sheaffer skeptibunkies capering around gladly like frolicking nay-saying Net trolls, it really only aped some kind of sweaty bandwagon many seemed to be jumping on... in some "king-of-the-hill" attempt to be "first" and proclaiming some "new reality" regarding the death of UFOs? Specious stuff and turgid nonsense then and now. The "new reality" is not found; it is faced.
Such as these favorably considers their falsehoods as right and true, and then conflate themselves with the absolute weakest of what's too easily or most conveniently presumable... the too taken for granted "conventional wisdom." They are the rigid misapplication of Occam's razor where the hypothesis must be, of needs, complicated. The are a poor man's Aristotle (reductionism) where a leavening of Plato (holism) was required.
The universe continues to resonate with a "quality" of life, undreamed by the whistling klasskurtxist*, as strange moving lights unsteadily traverse a steady starfield to MOCK the cast aspersions of those who would "wish" them away. Rock the head back to a crisp night sky with a modicum of revealing patience and be rewarded with proof of the larger reality that will be there, eventually! I say true. I saw same. Moreover, progressive humility and the avoidance of unwarranted hubris demands it.
These waves are well referenced by Ruppelt, Hynek, and Vallee in decades of literature. They've been going on since time in memorial and are captured on non-faked film, recorded in credible historical ink, and chiseled into ancient and unyielding stone, "if you ken it." These "waves" could be older than current DIRT!
*It's a word I coined. It's a mash-up of the names Philip Klass and Paul Kurtz: two CSI(COP) "heavyweights." I'm attempting to put a name to aspects of their too hubristically anthropomorphic, unjustifiyably arrogant, and altogether cowardly philosophy. Was that point too fine?
