UFO Skepticism and erroneous data

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I watched this portion of Joe Rogan's interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson. They talk about military footage of UFOs.


Tyson seems to be saying that he's skeptical of the footage because sensors on equipment can provide false data. He uses as an example the incorrect data that caused astronomers to search for planet X when they noticed that Neptune's orbit didn't make sense, only it did make sense, they just had bad data and didn't realize it.

I've never been impressed by Tyson's reasoning skills. And I don't follow his logic here either. Rogan points out that the military pilots saw the UFOs with their own eyes, or they at least have video of them. So what false data might we be using in this case? We have the testimony of the pilots, and the videos. I don't think the problem is false data. It's that we don't know how to interpret the data. We aren't certain of what we're seeing.
