I propose we use the NYIO instead of UFO. "Not Yet Identified Objects" is more accurate, I believe. We could also use IBIASFO?NYIO? How do you pronounce that anyway? Parsing something skeptics and debunkers don't believe in anyway -- like the elevenity-million Bigfoot threads they have over there -- is an amusing mystery. To be fair, there have been the occasional calls to change UFO to something else (like UAP: unidentified aerial phenomena) by some UFO researchers. That too seems silly to me for a lot of reasons but we're talking about skeptoids so I'll move on.
Whether that thing in the sky is called a UFO, "NYIO", UAP, or whatever, it's still something unknown. Sweet baby basil Jesus, it's a UFO, get over it. If it turns out to be a blimp, Venus or military craft, fine. Until then, it remains a mystery. Interpretations, one being the assumption that "It has to be alien since we don't have that technology" will continue whether the UFO is now called a UAP or "NYIO" or whatever sporty combination of letters you want to throw together.
- Which governments are involved? Is it just ours, or in partnership with others?
- If so, why?
- Who's paying for this? What's the taxpayer (that'd be us) role in this?
- What's the purpose of this object?
- How does the object affect the environment?
- What's it doing, if anything, to us?
- We see these objects and oftentimes, never see them again. Why?
- Why are triangles still being seen, after all these decades? Wouldn't the time frame for figuring out the usefulness of the technology, and putting it into action, have passed long ago?
- Are there rogue or shadow government agencies responsible? If so, that opens up an entirely new set of questions, including ones about accountability.
- What of the partnership between government factions and private industry?
- Authorities remain mum on these objects, yet the affects of the UFOs impact the citizenry. What other affects of the UFOs on citizens are there, and what are the agencies responsible doing with that data?
