The 1990s were a high-water mark for public interest in UFOs and alien abduction. Shows like “The X-Files” and Fox’s “alien autopsy” hoax were prime-time events, while MIT even hosted an academic conference on the abduction phenomenon.
 
But in the first decade of the 21st century, interest in UFOs began to wane. Fewer sightings were reported, and established amateur research groups like the British Flying Saucer Bureau disbanded.
 
In 2006 historian Ben Macintyre suggested in The Times that the internet had “chased off” the UFOs. The web’s free-flowing, easy exchange of ideas and information had allowed UFO skeptics to prevail, and, to Macintyre, people were no longer seeing UFOs because they no longer believed in them.
 
 
Data seemed to back up Macintyre’s argument that, when it came to belief in UFOs, reason was winning out. A 1990 Gallup poll found that 27 percent of Americans believed “extraterrestrial beings have visited Earth at some time in the past.” That number rose to 33 percent in 2001, before dropping back to 24 percent in 2005.
 
But now “The X-Files” is back, and Hillary Clinton has even pledged to disclose what the government knows about aliens if elected president. Meanwhile, a recent Boston Globe article by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie suggests that belief in UFOs may be growing.

The Vatican seems ready to embrace other worldly beings should they come from the sky. I guess they're hedging their bets to keep the power base stable. 

 

The Church's central mission on religion has dramatically shifted. They will now be teaching that "God is reason, If you reject reason, you are rejecting God.” This is a wholesale change in what the church has been teaching for centuries.

All stories and pictures. Nothing concrete. These things delve into the collective unknown and try to form explanations. Are they demons and/or angels made manifest by human imagination? The connection to religion is noticeable.

They can also be taken advantage of to control and milk a society for profit.
