Disclosure Petition: Logical Fallacies at work.


 Disclosure Petition - Paradigm Research Group
We have several fallacies at work. Of course, the petition of Disclosure  is only effective to keep the myth of the Cover-Up alive. It’s directed to the believers in the ET hypothesis and not to the government.
First of all, nobody has any evidence of the presumed extraterrestrial presence in our planet. 
The assumption that the government knows about this and keeps the secret is given as a self-evident fact, and this is not so. Consequently, the irrational ufologists know perfectly well that the government will not give an answer to the petition.
A priori, this lack of answer will be presented as a denial of recognition but never as ignorance.
So, the mythologists will buy time and insist in the presumed cover-up as a fact. 
For them, the conspiracy theory is the only answer to the silence of the authorities. 
It is not true that “Hundreds of military and government agency witnesses have come forward with testimony confirming this extraterrestrial presence. Opinion polls now indicate more than 50% of the American people believe there is an extraterrestrial presence and more than 80% believe the government is not telling the truth about this phenomenon. “
This fallacy is called argumentum ad populum. The argumentum ad populum appeals to popular attitudes instead of presenting relevant material. In other words is based on prejudice.
Also, the disclosure petition incurs in the fallacy called poisoning the well, and creates discredit, because it doesn’t consider the denial of extraterrestrial presence as a valid alternative.

Formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race - Disclosure.
