Put the evidence for and against the existence of extraterrestrial UFOs into the hands of a research scientist and former university administrator and you have the formula for a book that will shake your confidence in the limits of the known, and introduce a new reality that most serious thinkers have not yet begun to grasp.
Don Crosbie Donderi, author of UFOs, ETs and Alien Abductions: A Scientist Looks at the Evidence, interprets the history of the modern UFO phenomenon as a conflict between the constantly increasing observational and instrumental evidence for extraterrestrial UFOs, and the security imperatives of an American government whose involvement in the Cold War and various shooting wars has blocked recognition of the UFO evidence from 1947, when UFOs first came to public attention, to the present.
Donderi’s conclusion is that some UFOs are extraterrestrial spacecraft, some of those ET spacecraft have extraterrestrial crews, and some of the ET crews “catch and release” humans in order to study us.
Donderi narrates the decades-long interactions among military analysts, scientists, government officials and the public with an understanding of the pressures arising from participants’ roles, their own personalities, and how much they actually knew at the time. He argues that we are not alone in the universe and that our galactic neighbors have been cruising this residential subdivision for some time now; either just out of curiosity about their neighbors or, perhaps, because they are looking for a new home themselves.
UFOs, ETs, and Alien Abductions treats readers to an important, interesting and factually correct exposition of the evidence for extraterrestrial UFOs, and it reviews the potential consequences of this extraterrestrial curiosity for human civilization.
