How I Know UFOs Aren’t of Alien Origin

I was watching a program available on Amazon Prime called Hanger 1 which refers to a storage facility in which the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) keeps its files. An episode I watched last night referred to “crashes and cover-ups,” which “exposes” governments covering up the recoveries of crashed UFOs to harvest their technology out of public scrutiny. (That hypothesis is not hard to accept.)

In any case, at one point they showed a map of the eastern hemisphere with dots indicating all of the UFO crash sites they have identified in just the 1990s and 2000s. There were over a dozen of these crash sites indicated.

At that point I sought another program to watch. (Why was I watching in the first place? Because pandemic, that’s why.)

The reason these claims defy all reason is that the claims of alien origins for UFOs is based upon the hypothesis that aliens have technology far superior to ours (anti-gravity, tractor beams, flight without inertia, etc.) which as enabled them to traverse vast distances through space to come here, to visit our planet and “do things.”

Superior technology, my ass. If it is superior, how come so many of the dammed things crash into the planet. Dozens and dozens have crashed they claim … recently!

Oh, I know, aliens are bad drivers! They are fine when the have vast amounts of empty space around them, but when they get close to a planet, they hit it, repeatedly. No, wait, it is only juvenile aliens who come here to test out their hotrodded spacecraft and, as teenagers here do too, they push those craft a little too hard and Wham! No, wait . . .


  1. Be nice to meet someone from ‘outta town.’

    • I’m of two minds. One, I am very, very curious and would love to engage an alien being. Two, is that civilizations encountering cultures with advance technology fair very, very poorly, from being subjugated to being exterminated.

  2. WHY … would any being from another planet (if they existed at all) be interested in this whacked up world of homo sapiens?

    Something I’ve always wondered about — if a being is looking at this planet from true “outer space,” what indications are there that this planet has living beings? You can’t even see human beings from the space station … and I would assume these “creatures” would be a bit farther out than that.

  3. There’s more than that. Why do they repeatedly have test soil samples, mutilate cattle, check out missile silos, and abduct humans to poke and prod on them?

    Jacques Vallee argues they’re not extraterrestrials because they are acting too stupid to be extraterrestrials.

    • Ah, aliens work in mysterious ways, but humans, humans work for profit. The popularity of UFO and “ancient alien” programs makes money for a substantial number fo people, so they will continue, The unfortunate thing is that surveys show that these shows affect people’s beliefs. Now these may be “it had to be true, otherwise they couldn’t put it on television” people, but those people vote, too.

  4. Once upon a time I did web design work for a skeptics organization back at the dawn of the internet and all kinds of material flowed through our system and it was – interesting, shall we say? The stuff I saw going on in the UFO community pretty much cured me of any ideas I might have had about the possibility UFOs might be real aliens. About 90% of the UFO photos and films we saw were either glaringly obvious fakes, natural objects photographed under unusual situations, camera and/or film issues, etc. Of the 10% that weren’t immediately identifiable, virtually all were eventually identified, usually attributed to different aircraft or natural phenomena being photographed/filmed under less than good conditions. On top of that there was so much outright fraud it was amazing. One of the most widely known UFO promoters claimed he worked as a physicist at Area 51. He was often quoted in books, even appeared on TV a few times. Turned out he had worked there once, briefly. But not as a scientist. He was a janitor there for a few weeks. And then there were the outright loonies – oh dear lord some of the people we encountered were in serious need of mental health care.

    But as H. L. Mencken supposedly said, no one ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

    • Mencken was right and that is why these programs proliferate: “There’s money in them thar shows!”

  5. To play Devil’s Advocate for a moment:

    There’s something happening here
    What it is ain’t exactly clear

  6. Make’s a lot of sense that with their technology there would not be that much crashing going on. Great post.
