X-Zone Broadcast Network – Robert Sheaffer and Unidentified
the interest in History’s Unidentified, with the suggested
connections to UFO insiders in the government, I reached out to noted skeptic
Robert Sheaffer. I, along with others such as Rich Reynolds and John
Greenewald, had wondered about
Luis Elizondo’s credentials and military
background which, to this point, have been ill defined. We all, however, had
separated that problem from the Navy fighter pilots’ observations of some sort
planted firmly on the other side of the fence.
getting into that discussion, however, I asked a question that had been
bothering me for a long time. Do skeptics ever research a case and find no
terrestrial explanation? Do they ever just say, “I don’t know what it was?”
can listen to the discussion here:
did talk about Levelland and to be fair, I’m well-versed in that case and the
question came spontaneously. Robert hadn’t been prepared for it, but did
provide some interesting ideas about it… and I found our discussion about ball
lightning, as a possible solution, to be, well, funny. The Air Force used a
phenomenon that was not well understood, and that might not even exist as
theoretically postulated to explain another phenomenon that was theoretically
postulated and might not exist as described.
that I was in Roswell on Friday when the last episode aired, I had not seen it.
I did, however, read several reviews of it. I was surprised that both Rich
Reynolds and Stephen Bassett found the episode wanting. Robert, in our
discussion, suggested that the Italian officer featured might not have been as
credible as he was portrayed by those on the program.
did, eventually, get about to the AATIP, the To the Stars Academy and the Navy
sightings that were the basis of Unidentified. Robert’s suggestion that
the video of the objects that had been played in every episode were recorded in
infrared as opposed to normal digital equipment in our normal range of vision.
He mentioned an analysis available at Metabunk.org. which might be illustrative
of the problem. This link should take you to the proper video:
you can read Robert’s take on all this at his blog which you can find here:
all of you know, I was in Roswell and had the chance to sit down with a number
of researchers to talk about their work. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be
playing those interviews in my regular time slot. First up is Don Schmitt in
more of a conversation about the Roswell case than an actual interview.
