UFO Buster Radio News – 359: Are UFOs Religion, Skinwalker Ranch WTF, and Colorado Drone Drama Starlinked
UFO sightings happen in clusters. The same is true of books about UFOs. While clusters of UFO sightings are called “flaps,” there is no similar term for clusters of UFO books. I propose calling them a “Sagan” (despite the risk of implying that there are billions and billions of them).
The 1950s saw one Sagan, with Gray Barker and Frank Scully shaping our idea of flying saucers while skeptics sought to expose them as Barnum-esque bunk-peddlers. Another occurred in the 1970s, with Erich von Daniken and Charles Berlitz pointing to phenomena like the carved stone heads on Easter Island as evidence that ancient astronauts influenced the development of humanity.
In the 1990s, Whitley Strieber’s “Communion,” first published in 1987, ushered in a host of alien abduction books. In each of these Sagans, half the authors required only observed phenomena to believe in extraterrestrial contact, while the skeptics worked to show that the reports were false or had alternative, more likely explanations.
Sarah Scoles treats UFOlogy sincerely as a religion replete with congregations and sects, holy sites, sacred texts, and theological debates. A lapsed Mormon, Scoles sees parallels between her religion and UFOlogy, both derived from American culture, not Middle Eastern antiquity. “They Are Already Here” presents the reader with an exploration of this new religion — its leaders, schisms and followers — while reading like a travel narrative. Scoles, often accompanied by her sister, visits Area 51, Roswell, UFO conventions and offbeat roadside attractions.

What A Secret Of Skinwalker Ranch Scientist Thinks Concrete Proof Of Aliens Will Do To Society
There are few place in the country that have been the site of more mysterious happenings and UFO sightings than Skinwalker Ranch. The 512-acre property located in Utah’s Uinta Basin has been at the center of such events for 200 years, with the area even being nicknamed “UFO alley” during the 1950s.
The scientists of The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch set out, last year, to see if there were actual scientific explanations for what’s gone on there, but now one member of the team, Dr. Travis Taylor, has revealed what he thinks would happen if we ever actually prove that aliens have been on Earth.
Dr. Taylor is an astrophysicist who helped to study Skinwalker Ranch for the series last year, and myself and several other journalists had the opportunity recently to ask him about his time working and living at the mysterious location. When asked what he believed proof of alien life having been on our planet would do to society, Dr. Taylor had an answer that might surprise you.
I don’t think that people are going to go nuts…So, what about disclosure? I don’t believe in big conspiracies. There’s no way that humans are adept enough and trust each other enough to create conspiracies so large it would take hundreds and hundreds of people to maintain it. Now there is possibility that things have been classified for national security reasons. And, at such time when it should be it could be disclosed and not reveal a national security advantage, then I could see that taking place but what’s it going to do to the general public? Most people in the general public believe there are aliens anyway. I don’t think it’s going to do anything except assure them.
Of course, Dr. Taylor also doesn’t feel that there’s been some long standing conspiracy to keep such information from the public. As he said, the idea that there’s potentially anything going on other than the government keeping some stuff under wraps for national security purposes would take too many folks too many years of hiding details for that to be true. So, there probably aren’t any government programs that are allowing humans to be impregnated by extraterrestrials, or whatever else Mulder and Scully would like to convince us of.
If there were an alien invasion we’d have to figure out what type of invasion it were and then how to – what type it was and then go from there. It could be a bazillion possibilities on the type of invasion…I’ll tell you what it will do to politics, it will improve the funding for programs to do research like the AATIP [Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification] program, advanced spacecraft technology or advanced spacesuit technology. Why all of our soldiers don’t have Iron Man suits, I can’t explain that. We should be – that should be one of the biggest defense projects we have. But we don’t spend any money on it. So, that’s the things that will change, is where we’re spending our money based on what we think the threats are. That’s all I think disclosure will do. The everyday person, I think they’ll just say, ‘I knew it all along. I told you so.’
Those Colorado Mystery Drones May Actually Have Been SpaceX Satellites
Elon Musk’s satellites are partly to blame for Colorado’s drone panic.
Some mystery drones that confused and worried residents of Colorado might have been Elon Musk’s SpaceX satellites, Motherboard has learned via a public records request.
In late November, northeastern Colorado was concerned with a series of mysterious drones flying over several counties in the state. Bearing various descriptions and light patterns, the large 6-to-10 foot mysterious drones made national headlines and left law enforcement scratching their heads.
In a January statement issued by the Colorado Department of Public Safety, the agency confirmed that 14 drones of the hundreds that were allegedly seen by the public “were visually confirmed to be hobbyist drones by law enforcement,” but none of the drone operators were breaking any laws. The overall conclusion by law enforcement was that there were “no incidents involving criminal activity” and “no investigations substantiated reports of suspicious or illegal drone activity.” In other words, no fleets of insidious drones were harassing Coloradans.
According to an internal Colorado Department of Public Safety report obtained by Motherboard, Public Safety personnel had logged 23 different sightings, but most were chalked up to being “legitimate commercial aircraft” or “atmospheric conditions” with only four remaining unexplained. The report indicates that some drone sightings may have been SpaceX’s Starlink Satellites.
“Of the 10 [unidentified drone sightings], 6 were proved to be either atmospheric conditions or legitimate commercial aircraft such as aircraft on approach to Denver International Airport or SpaceX’s Starlink,” the internal report said. SpaceX Starlink project aims to provide low-cost, high-speed internet to remote areas of the planet with thousands of small, low orbit satellites.
