Introduction to UFOs / the P-X & /remote-viewing
If UFOs are hostile, some of the implications might be:
nothing new is presented in the article. It is unfortunate that this particular article will be read by so many, from the pages of "Airman" magazine and from the special "True" magazine reproduction of the article.

The article uses several of the ploys encountered in the Non-Believer literature. It begins by citing examples of UFO reports which were subsequently definitely resolved as misidentification of common objects. The reader is then to extrapolate these cases to the unknowns. hoaxes are mentioned. the planet Venus is mentioned. The Air Force statistical listing is mentioned. Many of the arguments against UFOs are presented. . . arguments which have become classic over the years. there is
