A Short Course on the UFO Phenomenon


With Jerry Kroth, Associate Professor Emeritus, Santa Clara University

This is a full, robust discussion of the possibility that UFOs and extraterrestrials have visited Earth.

From Harry Truman to Mikhail Gorbachev, all the way to Ari Loeb, the current Chair of the Harvard Department of Astronomy -- there is myriad anecdotal testimony that UFOs are indeed real.

This course gives a full overview of commentary, sightings, actual material (like the Roswell Foil), and then explores how it impacts our understanding of the modern world.

Acceptance of the UFO hypothesis is likely to cause considerable “ontological shock” in academia involving wrenching readjustments in thinking in archeology, mythology, history, and maybe even biology.

This four-session course should prove intriguing and fascinating to skeptics and aficionados alike. The class starts with an assumption that whatever evidence exists, it must be exceptional, because the conclusion -- if true -- is ground breaking. Each step of the way evidence is sifted, debunkers are consulted, and the final presentation of “convincing” data is actually quite enormous.

Once the evidence for UFOs is presented, then the class shifts into discussing how this simple fact challenges all scientific thinking. The stories about Zeus or how the pyramids were built, or about Horus, or the gods of ancient times -- are these stories all still “mythic,” or is it possible the ancients were trying to tell us something?
