The UFO phenomenon has been a controversial topic among scientists for years.
True UFO believers have tried to convince men of science that the possibility of extraterrestrial presence in the vicinity of Earth should be closer investigated.
Still, few scientists have bothered to deal with the issue and most have remained skeptics.
There are several reasons why scientists are uninterested in Unidentified Flying Objects.
Most scientists think that unless there is any hard evidence there is nothing really to investigate.
However, Dr. Davis is of an entirely different opinion. Dr. Eric Davis is a research physicist at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Austin.
He has noticed that this negative UFO attitude is shifting as more scientists are now openly discussing UFO investigation.
"UFOs are real phenomena. They are artificial objects under intelligent control.
They're definitely the craft of a supremely advanced technology," says physicist Eric Davis.
Dr. Davis says there are many scientists who investigate the UFO phenomena privately.
"There are scientists who are aware of evidence and observational data that is not refutable.
It is absolutely corroborated, using forensic techniques and methodology. But they won't come out and publicize that because they fear it.
Not the subject - they fear the backlash from their professional colleagues.
The impact on their career might be detrimental and they'd get bad publicity.
"It's not an acceptable, funded line of research. The National Science Foundation does not accept UFOs as a subject for scientific study, " says Dr. Davis.
He also point out the UFO subject is closely associated with fear and ridicule. He sees many of his colleagues as cowards.
"They're wrong, naive, stubborn, narrow-minded, afraid and fearful. It's a dirty word and a forbidden topic. Science is about open-minded inquiry.
You shouldn't be laughing off people. You should show more deference and respect to them … Scientists need to get back to using the scientific method to
study things that are unknown and unusual, and the UFO subject is one of them," says Dr. Davis.
UFOs is more a military than scientific subject.
"It's the domain of military intelligence," proposes Dr. Davis.
"The fact that [unknown] craft are flying around Earth is not a subject for science - it's a subject for intelligence-gathering, collection and analysis.
That's because UFOs are not a natural phenomenon, and that's what science studies."
In addition to being the Senior Research Physicist at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin, Eric Davis is the Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics.
His past experience includes the NASA institute for Advanced Concepts and a technical contributor and consultant to the NASA Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Program.
Dr. Davis is studying propulsion physics. He hopes his contribution to the research may enable humans to travel with ease and speed through space.
Who knows, maybe will then get all the answers we are looking for and we will finally learn the truth who or what is really out there.
