Burning down the house

News Short: This guy needs some help. Maybe he will get it in prison for 5 years or more. Joshua A. Witman, 34, told police he set fire to the home because aliens were living in the walls of the home and a basement was a portal for demons. Source: Lancaster County man sentenced for…

Edgar Mitchell continues to make preposterous claims

mitchell_moon_080725_mn

This silliness by Mitchell originated in tabloids like the Mirror and Daily Mail. But even Gizmodo is now publishing it. Why? It’s a baseless, vacuous assertion. It gets web hits. But it’s not news, it’s trivial journalism. Mitchell has been on about aliens for years and some news sources love to print sensationalist drivel. Veteran Astronaut…

The Vatican’s official astronomer talks about life in the universe and drifts into intelligent life, like us. Headline writers went nuts.

Blink-182’s Delonge detours into UFO-alien land

tom-delonge

It’s not news that rock musician Tom Delonge has been deep into the UFO idea for years now. Once again, a celebrity is using his status to “investigate” something that others have investigated to death. Maybe he shouldn’t have quit his day job. Facebook statuses show Delonge meeting with NASA officials, as well as possibly the…

Planet-dolia pyramids and poles (UPDATED)

Cropped from the original picture from the Mars Rover raw image feed from JPL

A number of stories are circulating online today with claims of weird things found on other planets. As usual, the facts are interesting but mystery-mongering sites overreach and portray them as extraordinary, that is, there are cities or evidence of civilization out there. The evidence for THAT is doubtful indeed. We see what we want…

Oh those crazy Raelians!

UFO speakers tout new evidence and birth of a “science”

UFO_Tottenham

Same old stuff. We are being promised new photos of aliens (from Roswell) and told that scientists should be more involved in this new field. I wonder if they have ever researched the history of UFOlogy. It went no where back in the 50s through 70s. What’s changed now? UFO experts say ‘we are not…

Sad that disclosure of obviously fake aliens is the last thing you do

Boyd Bushman showing picture of alien. Taken from YouTube.

This story makes me very sad and I wish it was not publicized. But it gives us a lesson about “deathbed confessions”. It also reveals how very desperate the UFO community is to provide “evidence” even when it is embarrassingly awful. Boyd Bushman spoke with independent aerospace engineer Mark Q. Patterson shortly before his death last…

UFO researcher Jacobs profiled – Relies on weak evidence and fallacies

ufo night

This article falls for the appeal to authority, saying Jacobs is a tenured professor and “makes his case with well-reasoned, articulate explanations and applies a scholarly approach to his research, which he has shared in four books – printed by well-known and academic publishers.” Since when are there well-reasoned arguments for aliens visiting earth and…

Human-like depictions in Indian cave art? Nope, aliens.

India alien paintings

I need a shortcut name for these ridiculous evidence-devoid stories that make you scratch your head as to WHY it would be printed in any media outlet except as a joke. In this story, the depictions must be aliens because… because… it makes for a snappy headline. Who needs evidence? 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens…

Buzz Aldrin part of the “Aliens On the Moon” special

Sounds like another humdinger. The Syfy network will air a two-hour special called “Aliens On The Moon: The Truth Exposed” on July 20 (the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing).

Never pass up some alien clickbait from NASA

One of Puu Loa Petroglyphs in the largest petroglyph field in Hawaii with more than 23,000 images carved into lava, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, USA.

Geez, NASA people, watch your language. People really believe this stuff! Nasa: Strange Markings Across The Globe ‘Might Have Been Made By Aliens’. Ancient rock carvings found across the globe were made by human civilisations, long ago, right? Well…perhaps not. No less an authority than Nasa have suggested they could have been made by aliens,…

Social media went crazy for lil’ old Elwood Kansas yesterday
