The Fallacious Petition of Disclosure.


The Fallacious Petition of Disclosure.
(Our comment between text, and after text, bold and underlined.)

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race - Disclosure.
Disclosure Petition - Paradigm Research Group
"We, the undersigned, strongly urge the President of the United States to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and immediately release into the public domain all files from all agencies and military services relevant to this phenomenon."
Excellent chose of words, because formal means between other things “Having the outward appearance but lacking in substance: a formal requirement that is usually ignored.”
So, the petition will not be answered, the requirement ignored and the whole thing lacks of substance.
Also we see here the use of the indefinite article “an” instead of THE extraterrestrial presence. An is in fact a weakened form of one; both an and one come from Old English http://img.tfd.com/hm/GIF/amacr.gifn "one." In early Middle English, besides representing the cardinal numeral "one," . This choose of words seems to reinforce the insubstantiality of the disclosure petition.
___
Hundreds of military and government agency witnesses have come forward with testimony confirming this extraterrestrial presence. Not true. There is no evidence at all of any extraterrestrial presence. Deliberatelly, the recognition of the UFO Phenomenon is presented as recognition of the extraterrestrial presence. The use of the statistics is also insubstantial. This fallacy is called argumentum Ad populum. Use and abuse of statistics is called false precision. The source of these statistics remains unknown, and this fallacy derives from the use of unjustified material giving the idea of precision and “science”.
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. The people have a right to know. The people can handle the truth.
Again, the manipulation of statistics without giving the source is fallacious. The number of believers in no way proves the existence of something. This “precision” is false and misleads an audience into supposing that the information is more detailed than is really the case.The numbers and percentages used give a misleading impression of confidence in the disclosure petition.
But after all, this petition is only apparently directed to the White House, but is directed to the clients of the exo-fantasists and profiteers.
1)We, Rational Ufologist know that the so called UFO Phenomenon is with us from the beginning of historical times.
2)We recognize that we don’t know what’s the origin or nature of this Phenomenon.
3) There is no direct or indirect evidence proving that any extraterrestrial civilizations has contacted us or our Governments.
4) There is absolutely no evidence about extraterrestrial origin of this UFO Phenomenon.
5) Extraterrestrial origin, ETH, is just one of many hypothesis, perhaps the less rational of all.
