Anomalistic Observational Phenomena

Why call Unidentified Flying Objects AOP?  Because UFO has become synonymous with ET spaceship in the minds of the general public and the Media, and Unidentified means unidentified.  Therefore, a name change is required in order to disassociate logic and reason from fantasy and delusion.  An acceptable alternate name is Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, or UAP.

Why study AOP?  Because they exist, and most scientists refuse to study them for fear of being ridiculed.  That doesn't make sense.  Since when is scientific discovery ridiculous?  Scientists should realize that the scientific method, if combined with current technology (COTS or commercial off the shelf technology), can and will provide answers.  UFOlogy can never provide answers, because it is a failed paradigm based on anecdotes and reckless speculation.  SETV (Search for ExtraTerrestrial Visitation) was born in an attempt to fill the void of scientific ignorance with hard facts and data.

Scientific data from multiple sources of instrumentation are required to accurately identify AOP.  With each new piece of relevant data, the number of alternative explanations decreases until there is one and only one possible explanation.  Verification with recorded data is the key to changing UFO to IFO.
