From a UFO, it's a small world

This post is not intended to suggest the acorn doesn’t fall very far from the tree. Its subject is, however, interesting enough for me to spend hours on research and make a couple of long-distance calls to confirm.

First, I quote from the book, “The Interrupted Journey” by John G. Fuller, first published in 1966 and available on Amazon. The book is the story of Betty and Barney Hill, alleged UFO abductees.

"(Walter) Webb also was familiar with the findings and research of the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization in Tucson, Arizona, and another conservative non-profit group, inclined to take more seriously the reports of intelligent beings associated with UFO sightings, where the craft hovered or landed. APRO, as the organization is known, is under the direction of L. J. Lorenzen, an engineer in the Kitt Peak National Observatory at Tucson. Among its advisers are Dr. Frank Salisbury, Professor of Plant Physiology at Colorado State University; Dr. R. Leo Sprinkle, Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Wyoming; H. C. Dudley, Chairman and Professor of Physics, University of Southern Mississippi; Dr. James A. Harder, Associate Professor in the College of Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, and others.

“Dr. Dudley once said, 'I recommend we use a bit of scientific curiosity to see whatever is the physics of the phenomena so many people are describing as UFOs. Ascribing the phenomena as due to psychological aberration is nonsense. There is a series of physical phenomena that needs explaining; let's get on with it in an open-minded, scientifically oriented manner. Then, let the data provide the answer.'''

I have confirmed with public relations at the University of Southern Mississipi that Dr. H. C. Dudley – Horace Chester Dudley – is the father of newly named British Petroleum CEO Robert Dudley.

This is not intended to disparage either Robert Dudley or his father. I just think it's interesting, and I believe DemWit to be the only media source on planet Earth to report it.

Don’t know about other planets.

Oh, great. There is some evidence that delusional thinking runs in families.

Maybe after BP's next oil spill, they'll claim it's a ploy to scare away the aliens.

Frodo, nominatin' this as "post of the year" said...

Frodo wants to know if friend Merry was ever married to Mr. John L. Carson of Atlanta? Frodo believes he is the source on this journalistic masterpiece.

I second Frodo's motion. That is a great example of good journalism backed up by facts.
Have a great day!

I hate being old. A few years ago, I came across a really good neuropsych explanation for the UFO abduction phenomenon and I can't remember it or relocate it! It was delusional material, of course, but there was a particular "event" sequence in the brain that made the alien abduction notion the most "logical" one the victims could think of.

Until I find it, cue the soundtrack: Don Henley's "They're Not Here. They're Not Coming."
