If There’s “No Evidence,” Why Did Congress Hold Hearings?

“There’s no evidence that UAPs are extraterrestrial in origin.” A statement recently issued by NASA. I’ve heard astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson say as much in appearances on MSNBC.

Perhaps this is evidence of folks who are envious of those of us who have our own personal evidence. Some don’t have to prove, or need proof, that UFOs exist. We’ve seen them and we’re intelligent and rational enough to deduce that they are not derived of this earth.

The same folks, like those “in charge” of the issue at the Department of Defense, who are so determined not to be lumped in with the “UFO believers” that they went so far as to come up with their own acronym. (Insert numerous smirking emoji faces here.)

This way, when military aviators actually see and record evidence of UFOs, DoD can call it UAPs, as in Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, and sound all official. As if they might know what they’re talking about, even if they can’t “explain” or “identify” it.

Here’s the thing. Phenomena is defined as an observable fact or event. Why isn’t an observable fact or event considered evidence?

And yet, given how long it took DoD to actually admit they had actual footage of something they couldn’t explain, it’s perhaps no surprise that it took Congress until last month to hold hearings on the subject. For the first time in more than fifty years.

Because, as it turns out, more than forty years of sightings by military pilots over the past twenty years—and this is merely the stuff that is reported or revealed—might just constitute evidence of extraterrestrial life after all.

Otherwise, why would the House Intelligence Committee’s Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation subcommittee hold hearings about it?

But is it all about paranoia? The problem as I see it is with this particular subcommittee holding the hearings. Given how none of these UAP observed in action demonstrated signs of sinister aggression, violence, or otherwise terroristic or “proliferation” intentions.

Is DoD so brainwashed by Hollywood versions of alien encounters that it and Congress automatically assume it’s the aliens who are the bad guys out to get us?

Plus, while everyone is busy claiming there’s no evidence that these phenomena are of extraterrestrial origin, is anyone looking into who is actually piloting these unexplained aircrafts? Flying vessels that have been observed exhibiting all manner of unexplained physics-defying capabilities, including excessive speed. How is that “no evidence”?

Isn’t the fact that a human being could not physically withstand flying in such a craft without injury or death evidence that perhaps it’s not a human at the helm of these UAPs? This is not rocket science, folks. It’s common sense. Ditto with the argument that they could be operated remotely. If so, by whom? From where?

Not to mention that intelligent otherworldly sentient beings might not be too jazzed at being seen as terrorists while visiting a planet, specifically a nation, where our own police aren’t willing to protect against domestic terrorism wrought on children and minorities with impunity gleefully granted by some of those members of Congress investigating UAP technological capabilities as a threat.

There is hope that a few of our congressional leaders have a clue, or at least an open mind. Congressman Andre Carson, Democrat from Indiana, said in his opening statement at these May 2022 hearings, “UAPs are unexplained, it’s true. But they are real.”

Real. As in factual, concrete evidence. Evidence of something we ourselves are not technologically capable of designing, or physiologically capable of piloting. So why on earth wouldn’t this be evidence of extraterrestrial origins?

NASA will conduct its own ridiculously low-budget investigation beginning later this year. Perhaps it should pause to consider that some of its space probes like Voyager roaming beyond our solar system with technology designed to attempt to communicate with potential sentient beings could easily be seen as UAPs by the otherworldly.

Hopefully those from places unknown won’t behave as ignorantly and juvenilely as we do and automatically assume the US is engaging in potential acts of terrorism. But could you blame them? We are, after all, a nation that can no longer engage in the peaceful transition of power without half of Congress and one third of the population claiming those waging a brutally violent insurrection are mere patriotic tourists.

Meanwhile, these UAPs only have to show up and exhibit capabilities we don’t possess to be investigated by a committee that addresses counterterrorism.

Beings from worlds beyond our myopic little view of the universe likely know more about us than we do about them because our government officials and scientists are too busy claiming that if they can’t explain the evidence before their eyes—there’s “no evidence.”

At the very least you’d think NASA could come up with conclusions more credible. Understanding the unknown or incomprehensible requires going beyond denial of the obvious. Or hiding behind the silly, self-serving military-complex notion that aliens are out to destroy earth or terrorize humans.

There’s a snarky riddle told in the third novel of my Other Worldly series, Aliens Abound. It goes like this: What’s the difference between NASA and Space Force? The answer is: Intelligence versus aggression.

Hopefully, NASA will use their allotted $100,000 to do better than DoD has with millions. And can I just say that any beings from other worlds who observe where the USA puts the bulk of its money and obsessive focus would likely not see us as peaceful or benevolent?

Coming soon: Alien Sensation, fifth novel of the series, featuring more all-too-human evidence that it isn’t aliens who are out to destroy earth—or our democracy.
