Dear Ministry of Defence,

I would like to know if there have been any UFO sightings across the uk in the last 20 years- also any information on the Scull and cross bone society

Yours faithfully,

A. Mitchell

A - Ignoring for the moment that part of your request dealing with reports of UFO's across the UK over the last 20 years, the following link is to an article in Time magazine on the 'Skull and Bone Society':

http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/....

It should give you an idea about the Society's origins.

Since the Society is a US one, it's very unlikely that the MOD would even know it exists - never mind hold any information on it.

It's also worth remembering that that the Freedom of Information Act only requires an authority to release information it actually holds, not to go gather new information just to respond to a request.

FOIA can't help with 'conspiracy theory' based requests, mostly because they are just plain fantasy based on misreporting, misunderstanding and misleading by others - who generally 'feed into' each other and cite sources that just aren't reliable/factual.

Space aliens, new world order, illuminati, hollow earth, these all share a common origin - a desire to believe that someone/something else is responsible for events that folks don't want to accept as being human nature in action.

Really, there is no difference between any of these particular belief structures and those associated with religion generally - they all share the same 'mystery cult' context and are all ultimately unprovable because they depend on pure belief, which is deeply personal at the individual level and not something that can be changed or challenged for that simple reason.

Folks believe what they want to, whether it's true or false - it's their right to believe, but wasting the time of others with requests like this isn't within the 'spirit' of the Freedom of Information Act and should be left to the many other blogsites and forums covering the conspiracy theory 'hobby'.
