If you’ve been following this blog over the past couple of weeks, you know that I’ve had a change of mind concerning UFOs. I’ve long thought that the whole subject of UFOs was an easy target for debunking skeptics, and so I never bothered to take a close look at the phenomenon. But since I was recently asked to consider the subject seriously, I’ve found myself ever more intrigued, and no longer regard UFOs as being nearly so easy to dismiss as I once did. Since I’m continuing to look into this subject, I’ll go on sharing at this blog some of the interesting things that I’ve found. But for anyone who comes around here regularly, and thinks I’m now exploring a kooky subject, I’d just like to reassure you that I’m still a skeptic, and I’m exploring the subject as a skeptic. I’m not advocating UFO belief (at least not right now!). I’m just sharing things that I think are interesting, and that puzzle me. And damn, the subject is fun and spooky. It’s got me wanting to watch old science fiction films and think about “space things.” And that’s enough reason to spend some time on the subject, right?
Here, for example, is J.C. Duboc, a French Air Force Captain, now retired, recounting at a National Press Club conference (in November of 2007) his experience of a UFO. He sounds credible to me. What should we make of his testimony?
