Confusion, contradiction and ambiguity in pseudo-ufology .
Let’s see what I meant by this apparently complex definition of some kind of irrational ufology.
A UFO (unidentified flying object) is any observed atmospheric phenomenon for which there is no apparent explanation.
We say that a flying object remains unidentified if the entity is not a commercial and private aircraft , to or military flights, rocket launches and corresponding spent stage ejections, weather balloons, meteorites, kites, atmospheric phenomena (like the Northern Lights or lit clouds), pranksters, and, of course alien spacecraft.
Governmental sources and private researchers (M.U.F.O.N.) tell us that approximately 5 per cent of the Unidentified Flying Objects remain unidentified, but we find one or two problems here.
If only 5 per cent of UFOs are UFOs, it must be true that 95 per cent of UFO are not UFO, and this definition violates the logical Law of Non-contradiction which establishes that "one cannot say of something that it is and that it is not in the same respect and at the same time".
So, only a small percentage of flying objects are Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs.
However, the UFO definition is also contradictory because the unidentifiably depends of the king of witness. What is unidentified for a civilian can be perfectly identifiable for a pilot or an engineer.
If this is true, the category of unidentified is conditional and perhaps transitory. So, UFO definition is obviously unreliable.
All this is evident, but the irrational ufologists solve the problem easily. Doing this they violate the law of identity: This logical law states that: “each thing is the same with itself and different from another”: “A is A and not ~A”. By this it is meant that each thing is composed of its own unique set of characteristic qualities or features:
Either an Unidentified Flying Object, (UFO) is such, or it is an alien spacecraft.
Since irrational ufologists cannot give us any evidence probing that UFOs are extraterrestrial spacecrafts, they live in contradiction and cannot avoid the logical demands.
The identification of UFOs with Extraterrestrial vehicles is the trap that works simply because it’s not easy to deny rational thought with total impunity.
Instead of reason and science, the fantasists give us a contemporary adaptation of the old ignorance and superstitions.
