Skeptical Successes and Ufological Failures: Opportunities in Uncomfortable Places

Thomas E. Bullard, CUFOS board member and veteran UFO researcher, has examined a variety of important subjects in ufology, including especially his extensive work on abduction reports. In this rich and detailed article, he stands back to provide a perspective on what skeptics of the UFO phenomenon have been doing right and what, sometimes, ufologists do wrong. Bullard's objective is not to bash 'our side' in the long-running debate with skeptics and debunkers, but instead to cause us to re-examine our own work and improve our practices, using some very well-known cases as a springboard.
