One cannot logically dismiss UFO close encounter reports summarily merely because we have reason to regard the reports of the crafts’ alleged masters — variously identified as Venusians, Zeta Reticulans, inhabitants of distant galaxies or comparatively nearby stars, such as Sirius — as preposterous.

We have to consider the possibility that the beings in the “flying saucers” are liars.

Indeed, once one gives up the idea that not only is our government lying about UFOs, but so too are the ostensible “aliens” inside, the subject begins to make sense.

Encounters with Trickster beings are very, very old, and resemble UFO lore to an alarming degree.

Of course, what about you and me? We have no reason to believe any particular theory. We just have reason to disbelieve the scoffers, the “skeptics” whose idea of explaining data depends mostly upon denying data.

I find self-identified skeptics to be ultra-amusing. These are people who defend a paradigm promoted by the Pentagon and by the shady hall-walkers in the deepest corridors of the Deep State — the latter folk being self-interested/class-interested statists who have been caught already, on the record a hundred times over, in lies about UFOs, and much else.

Indeed, between the tales from close encounters and press releases by the Pentagon, we only know that we can Trust No One.
