Abstract: Why it is that modern states do not take Unidentified Flying Objects seriously? Wendt and Duvall offer what they call an “epistemology of UFO ignorance” to explain why modern states systematically resist the notion that extraterrestrial life forms might both exist and travel to earth. They emphasized their militant agnosticism about whether UFOs really are extra-terrestrial, saying that they are interested only in how and why the ignorance is maintained.
