‘An Unidentified Flying Object is anything seen in air or briefly on ground that looks like an unfamiliar object and still cannot be identified after report has been studied by scientifically qualified persons.’
Searching for UFO’s definition was first step in checking whether that white dot I saw was really a UFO. The second step was to actually examine components of definition and ask myself following questions:
·A UFO is anything seen in air or briefly on ground that looks like an unfamiliar object…
Was that thing I saw familiar? No, so till there that white little dot is a UFO!
·…and still cannot be identified after report has been studied by scientifically qualified persons
Well I didn’t phone anybody qualified in science because… I knew that that thing I saw up in sky must’ve been a satellite from quasi-start. No UFO then.
But is it really important to prove whether UFOs exist or not? I don’t think so. Of course if a true UFO is discovered, this would mean that intelligent life does exist elsewhere but do you really think we will accept that fact? Or will military decide to bombard ‘flying saucer’?
Well it’s fortunate that I didn’t phone CIA, NASA or SETI . Because I would have received some severe cranial injuries due to broomstick assaults!
