A UFO is just that - an unidentified flying object.
Millions of objects on our planet can be thrust into the sky in millions of ways, and not all are instantly identifiable. Hence, unidentified flying objects. That most people insist the word "UFO" means "alien visitor" speaks well for the human imagination.
Trusting a former military officer's word is a logical fallacy, known as an Argument from Authority
. He may not be lying, he may not be hallucinating, hey may not be old and on his deathbed and senile, he could be telling the truth. But there's no way to verify his claim.
As for the alien abductee's, what was implanted inside of them? The alien captain's map charting out his home planet which we can contact with radio? Plans to build a spaceship that we can test and use? The answer to any number of humanity's deepest mathmetical, biological, or physics questions? Heavy elements that don't exist on earth? Materials that have bizarre properties, isotopic ratio's not found on earth? Anything that would give scientific credit to those stories?
This has been found. Check out information on Dr. Roger Leir who has taken out at least 8 implants throughout the years. Inside of people in various locations of the anatomy he has found
Unfortunately we have none of those. Instead, the best evidence for aliens that's been produced are scars and parts of objects consisting of earth materials. Nothing extraordinary enough to confirm such extraordinary claims.
"Another strange thing was also discovered. In the tissue around each implant, there were numerous nerve endings that didn't belong there. None of the investigators could say why these nerve endings were there, but it suggests the possibility that the implants act as some kind of monitoring device through attachment to the nervous system.
When Derrel Sims got the objects back to Houston, his first test was to expose them to ultraviolet light. He found that they all glowed brilliant fluorescent green. Derrel has found in his research with abductees that patches of some substance, invisible to the naked eye but fluorescent under black light, sometimes show up on the abductee's body following an abduction. He suspects that whatever this substance is, it could result from direct physical contact with the body of the abductor. With this in mind, he said he was not surprised to see that the three removed objects were fluorescent."
