The UFO Flap of February 6, 2009
I'm wondering if the aliens have discovered that the Dr. Pepper bottled in Dublin is the best. Could be why they are reportedly swarming the area. There have been a total of 12 UFO reports to date, for the month of Feb., 2009 and the month isn't even half over yet. Reports from Cisco, Desdemona, De Leon, Dublin, Stephenville, Glen Rose, Morgan Mill and the Evant/Hamilton area. Most of these reports are for a single day, Feb. 6, 2009. There is also a total of 18 for the whole state. I'd call that a flap, for sure.
Seriously, this all makes me wonder. If I didn't see these things with my own eyes, I'd still be one of the biggest skeptics around and to this day, after numerous sightings I'm still not 100% positive. I've seen "UFOs" since I was a teenager but that still doesn't dismiss the fact that our military could possibly have some weird and freaky technology, that they aren't sharing with the public. Did the military come up with all this on it's own, or did they have help, or is it that none of it's military, or only part of it? This inquiring mind wants to know.
Back in the 60s when Star Trek first introduced us to "communicators" and we were still using clunky, tied-to-the-wall land lines, who would have thought we'd soon have tiny flip open cell phones that can even take digital photos and send them via email ( or texting)? And who even thought of email back then? In the fifties, computers were so big that just one filled a huge room and basically crunched numbers. Computers weren't much smaller in the sixties.
We now have I-Pods, laptop computers, satellites in space that help us communicate, transmitting high quality digital TV, keeping track of our weather and can even see a dime on the sidewalk. Old news. Now there are Sats that can see under the oceans. Men have walked on the moon, we've sent roving robots to Mars and have been witness to deep space through the Hubble telescope, the list goes on. Amazing, isn't it?
I'm not going to sit here and say we all have to believe, one way or the other. I think that at this stage, we should all take a very close look at the evidence for and against, alien technology verses our own ingenuity (or a combination of both), then make up our own minds. Or we can sit on our collective arses and wait for our government to divulge it's secrets. Who is willing to wait that long?
