Aggregating Skeptical Thought

The Renaissance of UFOs

I have always been fascinated with UFO and aliens and bigfoot and Loch Ness and all those other stories that we humans tell each other are real. And to be honest I bought most of it. Some of the stuff seemed like a stretch at the time but I wanted to believe so badly.

Even after my mind grew more skeptical (long before I discovered Skepticism), I always found the “historical” paintings and renderings of what seemed like UFO’s to be so compelling. These things always had a big question mark over them. I now know that the biggest problem with interpreting an object/rendering in a particular painting as a UFO out of the context of the painting is a big no-no.

I was clearing out my RSS reader and somehow missed this little gem from gather.com, UFO’s in Renaissance Paintings Explained.

    This sort of stuff is interesting. The collective mind, or personal mind, tends to delude us. I have dedicated five years of research and writing on the subject of UFOs, which I analyze from a cultural perspective.
