Darren Perks: A New Generation Of Ufologists?
Ufology, a word not recognised by the dictionary, yet a word well recognised around the world. The study of the UFO phenomena and it’s related subjects. But is Ufology changing and are we starting to see new faces with their own way of investigation?
Since the early 20th century there have been many famous and well known UFO investigators, such as Robert Charroux, Jacques Vallée, Jenny Randles, Stanton Friedman, Jaime Maussan, Robert Dean, Steven Greer, Budd Hopkins and John Mack to name but a few as there are too many to list in this article.
But as modern times move forward and our lifestyles change with it, so does Ufology, and we are now seeing a new generation of UFO investigators. These investigators are fresh and have their own way of doing things, without following the ‘sheep’ of Ufology doing things the way that the older generation like things doing. In other words, ‘enough of the text books’ and boring stuff, lets get ‘hands on’.
It’s quite easy for anyone starting out investigating the phenomena to get sucked in and led by the ways of old, relying on second hand information and research. But now we see fresh ways of doing things with investigators who physically get involved and get outside with their own equipment, getting their own results and information. I’m not saying that the older generation of UFO investigators didn’t do this, but it’s clear that in some respect, many of them simply did not bother to get their hands dirty.
