A READER who left a comment on the last post suggested that as a science fiction fan, I might want to comment on the claim that a UFO might be responsible for damage to a wind turbine in Lincolnshire.
And despite the obviously intended sarcasm, he’s right – the subject of UFOs belongs firmly in the realm of science fiction and not science.
Having said that, UFOs clearly exist; by definition they are simply flying objects that can’t be immediately identified. But it takes quite a leap of bizarre logic to suggest that if something can’t be identified, it must therefore be alien in origin.
The most baffling aspect of UFOs is that, at a time when video cameras are more widely owned than ever before, no-one seems to be able to lay their hands on one when they see an “alien” ship or when they are “abducted”. Curious, eh?
So I’m afraid that whatever is responsible for the damage to the turbine, it wasn’t extraterrestrial in origin.
