David Clarke's book " History of a Modern Myth- How UFO conquered the World"


David Clarke summarizes in his book the psycho-social hypothesis in the following fundamental concepts . 
  • There is no such as the UFO phenomenon, but there are lots of phenomena that cause UFO
    reports.
  • There is no such thing as “True UFO”.
  • Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
  • Accounts of UFO experiences form the core of the syndrome but stories do not constitute “evidence”, they are folklore.
  • Culture not experience creates the UFO interpretation but some experiences are independent of culture.
  • The UFO syndrome fulfils the role of the supernatural “other”.
  • The extraterrestrial hypothesis and other exotic theories cannot explain UFOs.
  • The idea of a superconspiracy to hide the truth about UFOs is unfalsifiable.
  • The common denominator in UFO stories is the human beings and see in believe in them. People want to belief in UFOs.
Summarizing one might say that, even if a very tiny proportion of UFO reports were generated by novel physical phenomena or psychological processes, they would not be the UFO phenomenon, which would still exist in their absence. The real UFO Phenomenon is actually a collection of stories around which a huge folklore has accrued, and is a product of the individual and collective human imagination. It tells us about human beings not aliens or unexplained phenomena.

The beginning of the UFO Psycho-social Hypothesis

This article was originally presented as a paper at the Anglo-French UFO Conference held in Brighton in February 1984

"Over the past few years a growing number of French ufologists have become increasingly doubtful about the existence of UFOs as a genuinely original physical phenomenon. I should like to analyse briefly the origins and limits of this doubt.
The first French ufologist to have said “the emperor has no clothes” was Michel Monnerie, in two hotly debated books. [1] He was until then a very classical ufologist, and a member of the editorial
board of Lumieres dans la Nuit, the leading UFO magazine in France, from which post he was fired after publication of his second book. Monnerie’s reasons for doubting can be Summarized in two main arguments:
1. The non-specificity of the residue of unexplained cases – in other words the lack of distinction between explained and unexplained cases: exactly the same patterns and the same characteristics appear in both sets of cases. Indeed, cases with typical UFO effects have been explained: electro-magnetic effects, landing traces, humanoids, effects on animals, physiological effects, etc. I personally have investigated with friends a case which involved two witnesses, a burnt trace in a field and a howling dog – it was the rising moon: The unexplained cases have no unique peculiarities.
2. The continuity between the trivial and the extraordinary: for any phenomenon it is possible to define a set of median, or most probable characteristics (for size, colour, speed, etc.). But all these parameters are distributed about the median, and sometimes the appearance of a phenomenon is very far from the median, because of the inherent variability of the phenomenon, because of had sighting conditions or misrepresentation by the witness. It follows that the further the characteristics are from the median, the less will people be able to recognise the true nature of the phenomenon. For Monnerie, UFOs are situated at the ends of the distribution function, at the ends of a bell-shaped curve. They are thus ‘fringe phenomena’ of a larger set of phenomena, but their peripheral location is not perceived as such because ufologists remove the more central part of the curve, where the less strange phenomena are identified by the witnesses themselves or by the field investigators. Ufologists, Monnnerie says, arbitrarily call the minor misinterpretations ‘false UFOs’ and the major ones ‘true UFOs’, and do not realise that there is a perfect continuity between the two series, and that the difference between them is of degree not of nature."KEEP ON READING THIS FUNDAMENTAL ARTICLE.

UFO, disinformation programs and perspectives.

UFO, disinformation programs and perspectives.

Dear Mr. Fogg, thanks for your message and yes, truth is that there are several changes, (apparently, of course,) on the program of the PTB, (Powers That Be) concerning logistic, strategy or perhaps tactics in the UFO

Basically there are at least three different approaches concerning the UFO-ET-C.A. scheme. The traditional is based on keeping things as they are. No changes. The second group of experts things that keeping the UFO mythology alive is a waste of time and money. The third one suggests some new approaches but, in my view, these are contradictory and in the end, ineffective.  

PTB show some interest in the Mexican event.  J.J.Hurtak was there, you see, and this is not casual. J.J.H. was indeed a big player in the UFO program and his presence in the Mexican "fiasco" seems to indicate that they will go on with the total non-sense approach. 

I don't want to give names but while the Hawaiian exopolitician remains a systematic "informant" and W. is lost in the swamp of pure conspiracy theory, the History Professor while attacks the old Exopolitics gives us contradictory statements in what looks like an agnostic posture. 

What is more than evident is that there is no more production of events. The times of the M.I.B. and abductions is gone. (After all the entertainment industry produces enough influential suggestions.)
This absence of events limits the professional ufologists resources, but in the PTB environment, nobody cares much about this.
Of course, there will be new attempts to sell the "disclosure" rhetoric and faked announcements of "imminence", but this is private production. Nothing official.
We must understand, Mr. Fogg, that  UFO fans are a small minority; so small that it doesn't justify waste of time and money.
I should say that the UFO-ET-CONSPIRACY mythology belongs to the Cold War Era. Our present is much more complex and problematic.

Richard Dolan: bad commedy, unwanted autobiography, politics and UFO Mythology.

The first thing we learn listening and watching Richard Dolan's lectures is that Ufology is infinitely boring. The self proclaimed TV personality gives us an unwanted and unnecessary autobiography blended with bad jokes and trivia.

Included below is the link to R.D. video  talking about himself, telling bad jokes and redefining the so called EXOPOLITICS which as we know is a creation of Alfred Webre and Dr. Michael Salla.
Now Richard has some surprises for us. He tells us about the world crisis, corruption, corporate power, injustice and politics.
The problem however is not this twist into critical, "chomskian" analysis. On the contrary, the real problem is that all his has little to do with the UFO Mythology.
What happens here is that Richard Dolan has nothing new to say about UFOs, a dead myth of the 50's and 60's.
Richard Dolan is 52 years old. It's time to choose between becoming a hoaxer, and a show-man or recognize his compromise with the real world and humanity's real problems.
HOWEVER, Richard Dolan is beguining to criticize the massive nonsense. Listen carefully the second part of this lecture. Soon he will be classified as an agent and a professional debunker.
