Those of you who have gone to my homepage in the last day or two have already noticed the changes, but I need to make an official announcement.
For the past year a professional designer has taken my site on as a gratis project (Joseph Fioramonti of POSTMORTAL Design). He’s streamlined the site and blogs on the back end, put together some original art work, and made the blogs look like they belong to the homepage. I like the look and
What does this mean for readers? For now, you can still get to all this blog (and my other ones) from the new homepage, or use the redirect I’ve had for several years: uforeligions.com. But there will be changed to that …
Over the next week:
- I’ll be posting a note on my old homepage directing people to the new one
- I’ll be populating all the posts on this blog to their new homes on the new blog site that lives within the new homepage. Most of that is already done, but I have a couple months of copying and pasting to do. That means that, right now, the new blog sites will NOT have the most recent posts (I think they have up through this past January). I’ll announce something when the copying is done.
- Once the copying is done, I will put a sign on the front of this blog (a “last post”) directing people to the new blog location.
- I will cease looking at or interacting with this old blog page. I may just take it down after several months. Not sure. Same with the old homepage.
Have a look at the new site and its pages — especially the blogs. Let me know if something is missing, or you can’t find something. The layout is different, but we’ll all get used to it.
Robert Sheaffer over at the Bad UFOs blog has written MUFON’s epitaph: “MUFON Jumps the Shark.”
I don’t know of any other conclusion in the wake of the PA MUFON State Director claimed that missing Malaysia Airline flight 370 was abducted by aliens. This is the sort of hailstorm of idiocy we’ve come to expect from internet trolls or YouTubers who do UFO stuff. But not MUFON.
That “courtesy doubt” has now been withdrawn. Robert’s piece includes commentary on MUFON’s new TV series, Hangar 1 (the name for MUFON’s collection of UFO stories that the show will pretend are data). The show airs on History Channel 2 (I guess one fantasy channel wasn’t enough). Unfortunately, it’s not hard to show that MUFON’s credibility has been compromised for some time now. He writes of the show: “And what exactly does MUFON serve up from its precious archives? Some of the most preposterous, unsubstantiated stories in the UFO literature.”
Read it and weep (or laugh).
