UFOs: False Consciousness vs The Null Hypothesis

Wednesday, October 19, 2016 5:51
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Our friend Zoam Chomsky is enamored of The Null Hypothesis and uses the concept to derigate UFO reports and sightings, even UFOs themselves.

But there is another view, ascribed to Marxist theory that may better explain what happens in the milieu after a person “witnesses” what he or she thinks is a UFO.

It’s the theory of False Consciousness (from

“A Marxist theory that people are unable to see things, especially exploitation, oppression, and social relations, as they really are; the hypothesized inability of the human mind to develop a sophisticated awareness of how it is developed and shaped by circumstances.

Any belief or view that prevents a person from being able to understand the true nature of a situation.”

More about the theory at Wikipedia HERE:

And this:


From an abstract HERE

While the original import of the False Consciousness idea pertained to social, economic, and political exigencies, it can be applied to UFO reports and alleged witness sightings, much more sensibly than the Null Hypothesis which is a mix of muddled thought and intellectual scammery.
