A news report has been making its way across a few news services featuring the theory that many UFOlogists die in mysterious circumstances. The author, Timothy Hood, claims that the knowledge these people had was too dangerous for the powers-that-be to release into the outside world, and thus they had to be terminated. It is an interesting theory but hardly a new one. Timothy, a former US government advisor, is not the first to spot some statistically significant deaths among the UFO community. There are similar theories for scientists also. I wrote an article for Nexus (France) on the same subject.
For me personally, the danger is that a exceptionally good analysis of who is dying, how they were dying, and what the connection between the victims is required. A good example is the death of the Marconi scientists in the late 1980s. No-one could deny that it was unusual for some many very bizarre deaths in such a group of workers all within the same organisation.
