The 'C' Influence: SP:11 1897 Airships, and the Little Fellow in the ...

Over at the C Influence blog, I have a response to Erich Kuersten's article about UFO research, the Aurora, Texas UFO/airship mystery, and more:

The 'C' Influence: SP:11 1897 Airships, and the Little Fellow in the ...

I mention Linda Moulton Howe within the post:
As a side note and a bit off topic, look at the criticisms of researchers like Linda Moulton Howe. Howe, who has done significant work in the field of UFO and related research, like cattle mutilations, has been heavily trounced by others for her gullibility in some cases. Agreed, to a point, but so what? Do moments of hope, even gullibility in some cases, wipe out previous work, the data revealed? We’re human, regardless of philosophical stance on research, and when it comes to the soup that is Fortean-Esoteric-Paranormal-UFO stuff, we can’t afford to continue pretending things are so neat and tidy, clear and obvious. We are not objective beings, and we are often being played by forces we are barely aware of, and certainly don’t understand.
