Will NASA Diminish the UFO High Weirdness Factor?

Brother Mythos:
"NASA panel studying UFO sightings says stigma and poor data pose challenges"

As per the article:

"A NASA panel tasked with studying reports of "unidentified aerial phenomena" said at a hearing that the stigma associated with reporting UFO sightings — as well as the harassment of people who work to investigate them — may be hindering efforts to determine their origins."


"Daniel Evans, the assistant deputy associate administrator for research in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, said there has been no convincing evidence that reports of UFOs have anything to do with aliens. While extraterrestrial origins are not being ruled out, the independent group was convened to address broader national security concerns, he said."

Further still:

"We have a community of people who are completely convinced of the existence of UFOs, and we have a community of people who think addressing this question is ridiculous," Spergel said. "And I think as scientists, the way to approach questions is you start by saying, 'We don't know,' and then you collect data and you try to calibrate your data well."

Well, if it's flying, and you don't know what it is, then duh, it's an Unidentified Flying Object. And, I don't have a problem with investigating these phenomena. After all, maybe we'll finally get to see an authenticated photograph of the Flying Spaghetti Monster in action. Or, perhaps they'll find definitive proof our Mischievous Goddess Eris is behind some of these sightings.

It appears that, at the time of this posting, the UFO High Weirdness Factor is increasing. On Monday, May 5th, I found the following article referenced on a number of websites:

"Intelligence Officials Say U.S. Has Retrieved Craft of Non-Human Origin"

As per the article:

"A former intelligence official turned whistleblower has given Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General extensive classified information about deeply covert programs that he says possess retrieved intact and partially intact craft of non-human origin.

The information, he says, has been illegally withheld from Congress, and he filed a complaint alleging that he suffered illegal retaliation for his confidential disclosures, reported here for the first time.

Other intelligence officials, both active and retired, with knowledge of these programs through their work in various agencies, have independently provided similar, corroborating information, both on and off the record."


"Grusch said the recoveries of partial fragments through and up to intact vehicles have been made for decades through the present day by the government, its allies, and defense contractors. Analysis has determined that the objects retrieved are “of exotic origin (non-human intelligence, whether extraterrestrial or unknown origin) based on the vehicle morphologies and material science testing and the possession of unique atomic arrangements and radiological signatures,” he said.

In filing his complaint, Grusch is represented by a lawyer who served as the original Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG).

“We are not talking about prosaic origins or identities,” Grusch said, referencing information he provided Congress and the current ICIG. “The material includes intact and partially intact vehicles.”"

However, this rather long article makes no mention of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or our Mischievous Goddess Eris.

Where can his actual statements be found?

Brother Mythos:
The searches I have done have turned up nothing more than the original article from The Debrief website. Also, The Debrief website appears to have received mixed reviews concerning its overall accuracy. So, the fact that many media outlets have picked up, and are running this story does not make any of it true.

That's the reason I posted this article on the High Weirdness Child Board.

(Correction made for bad grammar.)

Brother Mythos:
"Las Vegas police investigate aliens-in-backyard report after officer spots flying object"

As per the Article:

"Las Vegas police officers investigated reports of two unknown entities falling from the sky on the same night in late April that a family reported something 'not human' in their backyard.

One officer drove to a home on the night of April 30 and interviewed the family who called 911 after making the sighting, according to body camera footage obtained by USA TODAY. One of the family members told the officer they saw “a big creature” that was “long, 10 feet tall.”

Now, if only this had happened on the Strip.
