As you know, the Internet is a wild and woolly place. Everything can be found here because the "price of admission" is so low. This is good and bad.

It's good because nearly everyone gets to have his (or her) say. Too often, in the past, the little voices were not heard in our society, but they are today on the Internet. You can find it all on the Internet. There is less "filtering" of information than there ever has been in the history of civilization, probably.

It's bad because you yourself have to do the searching and filtering of the enormous amount of "unfiltered" information on the Internet. No longer do you have a "gatekeeper" big media organization doing the filtering and "sanctioning" of information. You are on your own. You get to have the information, but you've got to figure out what is good and what is bad for yourself.

To do the filtering of the information on the Internet, you've got to educate yourself. You need to educate yourself in the methods of scholars, scientists, and investigative reporters. You need to know something about how they sort out good and bad information.

But trying your best to be a good little scientist, scholar, or investigative reporter is always where the burden should be. You should never believe important things without trying your best to understand what the best to believe about them is. Just as you have a duty to be a responsible citizen, you have a duty to be a responsible believer. We should not hold our opinions about important things lightly.

There is a lot of good stuff about UFOs on the Internet. Just getting to it is a problem though. That's a big reason why we've put up Oregon MUFON's website. We try to get you accurate, reliable information here. See our mission statement.

Here are some links we trust to give you reasonably trustworthy to completely reliable and accurate information about UFOs. Be sure to read the qualifiers in the annotations, however. We think some sites are useful even if they are not completely reliable and accurate in all their information. (Remember, our government and establishment elites have let us down on the UFO and the world of paranormal phenomena so there are no ironclad guarantees of absolutely and completely accurate and reliable information. But when you come down to it, does this exist at anytime or anywhere for any subject? Not really. We are always on our own in whatever kind of knowledge we seek.)

General UFO Links

Pacific Northwest Organizations

Abduction Research and Experiencer Websites

Research Organizations and Sites

Government Organizations

There is no official, public federal, state, or local government entity in the United States that engages in investigation, research, promotion, funding, etc., of the UFO subject or any of its allied subjects. Ufologists believe, however, that the secret parts of our federal government (intelligence agencies, covert military operation entities, and deep black research organizational structures) do engage in UFO research ("reverse engineering" and crash/retrieval activities) and monitoring of the phenomenon and UFO subculture with occasional covert disinformational operations targetting the UFO subculture and possibly UFO abductees.

Here are a few official government sites with UFO information.
