>My own personal opinion regard taking Ufology [very short
>Ufology currently is a mix of various aspects of subjects that
take up those few book shelves in your local store - we are next
to Witchcraft and Spells, when we should be next to Urology.
>Ufology is the study of U.F.O's
>I agree some people take this study to be say E.T or planet X or
inter dimensions or ancient matians etc.. whatever.. These are
different subjects - I agree some authors have tried to link them
to UFOs but that does not make them part of Ufology.
>Look at it this way :
>When your at school you study Biology, in these classes you may
learn the biology of a bird. You don't learn the mathematics of
how it maintains flight as this is a completely different subject
>Its a completely different discipline as is E.T to UFOs I agree
certain people have beliefs that link them but this does not make
them the same discipline.
>The study of Ufology should be re-clarified re assessed and then
presented again away from the surrounds sub-domains.
>10% of sightings cannot be identified. Ufology is finding out if
a sighting falls into this 10%.
>Once you have a case that does fall into this 10% then is leaves
the main domain of Ufology and falls into the hundreds of sub
aspects e.g ET, time travel, swamp gas, lighthouse, cookie
>I agree these other sub domains are interesting and attract
passionate people to their subjects as does ufology , but it
isn't Ufology its the study of Et or Time travel or whatever.
