Richard Dolan: The clowns are thrown in with the professors
Richard Dolan’s UFO-ET mythology was spoiled by an article published last year by the Washington Post about Ufology.
My comments in bold and italic.
Earlier, I spoke about the appearance of unknown and extraordinary objects engaging in what appeared to be some sort of monitoring or observation of key American nuclear facilities during the very early Cold War. I need not point out that this is a serious development, and one would think that academic historians would find this to be something noteworthy of study. And yet, to this day, there is not one single academic monograph or book length study on any of this. There are a few serious works on the matter, including my own, but none that come from a university setting.
After serious and professional research by private and public national and international institutions, the statistics show that 90 to 95% of the UFO are identified as natural phenomena or man made artifacts. The 5 to 10 %, remains unidentified by lack of enough research. This is not evidence, and Richard Dolan prudently tells us that these objects “appeared to be some sort of monitoring key nuclear facilities”
This means nothing. As usual no evidences are presented.
It’s also untrue that “…to this day, there is not one single academic monograph or book length study on any of this. There are a few serious works on the matter, including my own, but none that come from a university setting.” In fact there are many serious books written by scientists that debunk this unbelievable statement. The reader should do some Google research find 554,000 links under
Tray and let me know who is right and who is wrong. By the way, the inclusion of R.Dolan’own books as serious works is a pearl..!
Someone defined our self proclaimed UFO “expert” as a:
“Smart guy who believes stupid things without evidence.
Does the same mental and cognitive gymnastics other believers do.
Has some notoriety now thanks to a few books, TV appearances on SciFi Channel, and now his own radio program.
So now that he's economically invested in the nonsense he will defend his cash cow and discount any disconfirming evidence as part of a conspiracy.”
However this statement is contradictory, because if Richard sells his books and his image well, then he doesn’t needs to believe in stupid things. Let me tell you this: NOBODY who makes a living inside the UFO-ET industry remains a believer. (See my works about cognitive dissonance in this blog, please.)
I quoted Richard Dolan before, denying the existence of serious academic investigations, but again he is wrong.
The Washington Post’s informs us that “Researchers at the Universities of Westminster and Vienna have identified a proverbial host of factors that appear to correlate to belief in UFOs: Gender, politics, religiosity, intelligence, fantasy proneness—even certain psychological disorders, like schizophrenia.”
For Richard Dolan, “the Post wastes everyone’s time with infantile explanations, it destroys its credibility among serious individuals who know better.”
Where are those “serious individuals who know better” Richard? Why they are not telling what they know to the world-and making lots of money?
UFO watchdog, which is not a debunkers site, gives us the key of Richard Dolan UFO “expertise”
“The problem is that Dolan appears to take all evidence at face value. He will quote Morris K. Jessup on an equal basis with Jacques Vallee. He will talk of Gray Barker on the same level as J. Allen Hynek. He puts Philip Corso at the same level as Jerome Clark. In other words, he does not seem to discriminate between sources. He considers them all valid. Rather than sifting through vast amounts of disinformation for the Truth, it’s more like he’s amassing a mound of evidence without regard to its veracity or corroboration. He doesn’t even allude to the possibility that there might be some problems with some of this evidence. The clowns are thrown in with the professors.”
