Social science can be empirical and produce results that are both highly correlated and valid.
Pilots that are cleared to carry, and potentially deploy, sophisticated weapons payloads are considered to be among the most rational, capable and intellectually stable people. Eyewitness testimony from these pilots must be carefully considered.
Further, significant amounts of descriptions of unidentified aerial phenomena from other credible people should not be dismissed. Consider that the stigma around the subject of “UFO’s” is so potentially damaging to these witnesses, yet they still make their claim despite this intense social pressure. Certainly this combination of the sheer amount of credible witnesses despite the socially discouraging stigma indicates that a significant amount of people truly “believe ” that they have seen something that is not easily explained.
Clearly, significant amounts of people have seen objects that cannot be identified. So, unidentified aerial phenomena “exist”. We seek a scientific explanation that this aerial phenomena is/are “real” or can/could be explained and/or identified. But potential explanations cover a wide array of possibilities.
Our civilization’s best estimates indicate that the size of our Universe is ~93 billion light years in diameter. Surely, the vastness of our Universe contains intelligent life.
So, what is the likelihood that our space and our time are experiencing more than one form of intelligent life?
Just because a claim seems fanciful does not mean that it is not worthy of investigation.
The first radio broadcast in America occurred in 1906. So, if those early radio waves were powerful enough to escape into the vacuum of space, then those original radio broadcasts would have reached galaxies of ~100 light years away. Could there be intelligent life somewhere between Earth and 100 light years away?Read More
Let us consider a thought experiment. As we look out amongst the stars we are seeing the universe as it used to be. The light from many of the stars that we can observe left their “place” so long ago that by the “time” their light reaches us the…Read More
As our consciousness began to flourish we humans began to create concepts. This began with elementary principles such as off and on, up and down and so on. Most of these early concepts were observable, practical and based upon rational thought.Read More
The very essence of “knowing” or “to know” is to have an awareness either through information and/or observation. But which type of observation is suitable to scientists or society in order to develop a proof?
The scientific method relies on empirical methods of data collection through experiments. The more we can replicate these experiments and get similar results the more “valid” they become.Read More
