SMERF group are out to gather proof of ETs

I don’t know what to think of this…

SMERF search for alien visitors Local Gold Coast News | | Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

THE people of Springbrook, in the Gold Coast Hinterland, are so convinced they have been visited by aliens they have now formed a society to prove the existence of extraterrestrials.

The area is also said to be the home of the Yowie — a mythical ape/man creature that roams the forests.

The Springbrook Mountain Extraterrestrial Response Force, known as SMERF, has formed in a bid to prove the existence of ET and other-world life.

The group of 30 meets once a month at the end of Springbrook Rd and has declared itself a pro-active service designed to respond to and determine the veracity of close encounters of the first kind.

Its mission is to “survey the night sky, explore the Earth’s peculiar magnetic field fluctuations and ponder the Earth’s energetic links to space and beyond”.

If this is real, there seems to be a HUGE disconnect that is either lost in the newspaper translation or in the group itself. How can you get from unexplained observed phenomena to proof of extraterrestrials? You can’t. So, not sure what’s going on here, what these people are thinking or why this made the Daily Telegraph and Herald Sun.

    I believe the notice they got is probably entirely due to their acronym.

    So… Are they looking for little _blue_ men?
