Recently I read some discussion on one of the internet lists referring to the type speakers being presented at several conferences, and how the word “paranormal” is many times grouped together to include serious UFO researchers with other types like Bigfoot, ghosts, ESP, faith healing, etc., at the same conference. I had a personal experience with this a few years ago when I was master of ceremonies at a conference, and was asked to introduce some of the best-known serious researchers in the field of Ufology. I was also asked to introduce the other types mentioned above, and a “tin foil hat contest.” Since then I have refused to attend or be part of such conferences. Personally I have nothing against them, but feel UFO research is of such importance that it should not be combined with many that refer to themselves as paranormal. When you are researching an incident like the Roswell Incident, where you know people were threatened over a weather balloon (of all things), that to me requires serious research, as do many other UFO cases reported over the years. All too often conference organizers and television documentary networks seem to overlook the seriousness of UFO research. With the networks it’s a matter of profit and ratings for their shows; reality shows about UFOs have become the norm. Within the past few years I have had several problems with those types of documentaries. Read details via Truth Seeker at Roswell.
