Editor’s opinion: Unidentified flying objects, or more recently called unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), have been receiving a lot of media attention of late. Depending on how far you are willing to go through the rabbit hole, it could all be part of a planned outreach project to slowly acclimate the public to the reality of extraterrestrial intelligence. Or maybe the government really doesn’t have a clue, as they say. Perhaps what some have reported are beings from another dimension or humans from the future? Like I said, the rabbit hole is very deep.
Most Americans believe that intelligent life exists beyond the confines of our home planet.
According to a recent Pew Research Center survey, 65 percent of American adults said their best guess is that smart life does it exists on other planets. Additionally, more than half of those surveyed, 51 percent, said that UFO reports from military personnel are “definitely” or “likely” evidence of extraterrestrial life.
Pew also found that 51 percent of respondents did not feel that unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) were a threat to national security.
The Pew poll surveyed a total of 10,417 American adults between June 14 and June 24, shortly before the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released its preliminary unclassified report on UAP. The report wasn’t the smoking gun that many UFO enthusiasts had been waiting for, but it did paint a very interesting picture of what the government claims to know about the phenomenon.
When asked to rate the work the federal government is doing in dealing with reports of UFO sightings, the response was largely divided, with 45 percent saying they felt the government was doing a “very good job.” “or a” somewhat good job “and 49 percent believed officials were doing a” somewhat bad job “or a” very bad job. “
