(Before It's News)
There comes a time when delusion (and madness) must be set aside.
And the delusional madness of which I write is the UFO madness.
Once it was “cute” to be interested in UFOs and flying saucers, but those days and that “cuteness” are long gone.
The mysterious “phenomenon” – whether a figment of the imagination, a real phenomenon, a contrived hoax, or any other kind of “reality” – has reached the nadir of its value to human society.
UFOs don’t factor in to human existence, and never really did. UFOs and flying disks have always been a fringe topic and a trivial aspect of human history.
One can see the riven condition of ufology, that pseudo-practice that has smothered the enigmatic appearance of odd “somethings” seen in the sky and often on the ground.
UFOs are now only the haven for nostalgic geezers who became attuned to the Sci-Fi patina of the observed “somethings” while in their youth and now do not have the gumption to see that they and their wistful adolescent fixation no longer matters.
Many of my “friends” in the UFO community have actually abandoned their obsession for UFOs, deriving attention and belonging within the confines of Facebook and Twitter.
They rarely contribute within a ufological venue, opting to be adorned by fawning sycophants who slobber over their mundane activities that have nothing to do with UFOs or anything of substance.
Then there are the absolutely “mad” ravings of those who still harbor a hope that UFOs are the vanguard of an advanced extraterrestrial civilization, a fantasy that is so blatantly irrational that it borders on psychopathology.
Yes, there are some niggling elements within UFO lore that intrigue (even to me) but to set aside one’s existent and necessary proclivities to pursue UFOs to the detriment of normal behavioral life is sheer madness. And not to recognize that as madness is a folly that belies common sense; that obtrudes on intelligent wherewithal.
Some of you reading this will depart as visitors here, but that is no great loss, as most of you do not contribute or participate in any meaningful way, here or anywhere else for that matter.
UFOs are as dead as the hula hoop or any other fad that sprouted in the last decades of the Twentieth Century.
