The aftermath of the Roswell slides fiasco is running it's due course and has left many wondering what is the future in the studying of UFOs. Ufology, if that's still an appropriate term, has been dealt a serious blow and many have been hit with the shrapnel of the recent Mexico City farce. Dew, Maussan, Carey, and Schmitt might have well parked a car bomb in the middle of Roswell, NM and detonated it.
Most who read this blog know that I'm skeptical of the UFO phenomena. I've come to see very little intrinsic value in the subject matter. True, the phenomena still offers a gold mine for those, such as I, who are drawn to the psychological mini-dramas that ensue. This is still what draws my attention otherwise I would have chucked the subject matter and this blog along time ago.
To answer the question posed in the post's title, yes there is a point to analytical approaches, but in my case, only for the studying of the psychological issues that surface with certain cases.
