John Spencer On Reaction To Proof Of Alien Visitation

from Gifts of the Gods (1994)

'..It sounds like the sort of evidence that any UFO researcher, or any investigator would give his third eye for. As he was collecting it he could probably envisage a lifetime of praise from his colleagues and the scientific community for finally solving one of the world's great mysteries. He may even be envisaging the lecture shows, the books, the films, and - if he were of a pessimistic nature - the endless round of television chat-shows.

But what will actually happen when he presents this evidence to the world?

Firstly he will come up against the jealousy of his colleagues and the political in-fighting which endlessly goes on amongst all the researchers into the UFO phenomenon; his methods will be questioned and his honesty brought into doubt. Genuinely committed researchers will feel a grudging admiration but will probably still challenge the work on less than reasonable grounds, if past experience is anything to go by.

And once the material is presented to the world at large, the UFO researcher can look forward to spending the rest of his life defending himself against allegations of fraud, mainly from the scientific community, whose institutions have a massive interest in not accepting challenges to science, and partly from the media many of whom have a natural tendency to say 'black' the minute anybody says 'white'............'
