MUFON – Historic Gross Incompetence Or Hidden Agenda?

Ten months ago I sat down and began to write an essay for Robbie Graham's anthology UFO's: Reframing The Debate. In that essay I was highly critical of MUFON, the largest civilian UFO research group in the world. I've had grave doubts about MUFON for years and no matter which way I chose to look at the activity that has often surrounded this highly questionable organization, I found myself pondering some rather uncomfortable thoughts. I know from many conversations with people who I have the upmost of respect for that I'm far from alone. "One has only to look at their official mission statement—The scientific study of UFOs for the benefit of mankind— and then look Read More

Real #sekretmachine – More Faith Based Ufology For The Masses

Having been more than a little outspoken over the past couple of years on the current state of what passes for UFO research, this will be my final say on the UFO community, UFO Disclosure or the pantomime that is Tom De Longe's Sekret Machines franchise. See Robbie Graham's articles on the DeLonge Delusion (part 1 here), (part 2 here), with part 3 to come. I really don't need to add too much other than to say, here is the first evidence (a word seemingly alien to DeLonge, Levenda and much of the UFO subculture), that all is perhaps not what it seems. Some weeks ago DeLonge posted the following picture on his Instagram account with the words 'A real Read More

PUNK’D! UFOs And #Disclosure – Ever Get The Feeling You’ve Been Cheated?

  Given the recent furore over comments about UFOs by Hillary Clinton, her campaign chairman, John Podesta, and punk rocker, Tom DeLonge - it's time for a reality check. From the subculture that is ufology - the study of UFOs and their alleged occupants - to the mainstream media, punk musicians, The Pentagon and now even presidential candidates, everyone... yes, everyone, is using UFOs and the idea of alien visitation to sell something. So where's the truth and what's the reality? And is there really any money in UFOs? UFO Sociology Part 1 - The Subculture Within the tiny branch of the entertainment industry that is the UFO research community, I've rarely Read More

Deception.. Delusion.. #Disclosure

The CIA disclose information about UFOs... but it's a load of old cobblers and the UFO disclosure movement is far from satisfied. But what can we we realistically expect given the current imbalance of power between the intelligence agencies and Washington? Time for a new hashtag at the very least. Deception, Delusion, #Disclosure by Lorin Cutts,  4 January, 2015 “People make decisions as part of groups". “People make decisions for emotional reasons not rational ones”. – The Art Of Deception: Training For A New Generation Of Online Covert Operations, GCHQ Secret Training Manual. In a brilliant piece of “1984” style propaganda, the CIA has recently Read More

The Ufologist Curse Of Philip J. Klass

I once had the fortune to hear the well known UFO skeptic and debunker, the late Philip J. Klass speak. It was at the Fortean Times Unconvention in central London in the mid 90's (the year escapes me - Google puts it at 1997, but my memory says it was '95). I'm sorry to have to report, he was a far more eloquent and animated speaker than most of those on the side of the reality of the phenomena covered. Philip Klass died on August 9th, 2005, the following curse allegedly appearing in his will. But the curse had also appeared in print years earlier in Jim Moseley's Saucer Smear zine of October 10th 1983. Incidentally, Jim Moseley was another speaker at the Read More
