Scientists Still Canât Find UFOs, and They Should Stop Trying
By Jeremy Lott
Many scientists are convinced that UFOs exist and we should expend time and billions to find them. What if theyâre wrong?
Â Â Â Neil deGrasse Tyson is Americaâs most famous astrophysicist and host of the modern remake of the science show âCosmos.â So it is hardly surprising that he has something to say on the subject of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and little green men.
Last year, Tyson made headlines by joking, I think, to Business Insider, âPeople ask, âIf life is teeming across the galaxy, where are they? How come theyâre not just walkinâ into the White House or visiting us in Times Square?â I have some unorthodox thoughts on that matter.â . . .
. . . âA more serious concern I have is, by the way, our hubris forces us to think of ourselves as intelligent. We have a certain intelligence gap between us and other creatures on Earth. You donât walk by the worm on the street and say, âGee, I wonder what heâs thinking. Iâll somehow have deep insights.â No, you step on the worm! This is what we do as humans.
âSo I wonder if, in fact, we have been observed by aliens and upon close examination of human conduct and human behavior they have concluded that there is no sign of intelligent life on Earth.â . . .
