New X-Files Renews Cover-Up Conspiracy Claims

Sheaffer’s “Psychic Vibrations” column has appeared in the Skeptical Inquirer for forty years; its highlights were published as a book (Create Space, 2011). Sheaffer blogs atwww.BadUFOs.com, and his website iswww.debunker.com.

As just about everybody knows by now, the phenomenally successful TV series The X-Files, which ran from 1993–2002, was relaunched in 2016 with mostly the same cast and many of the same themes. In a typical episode, FBI Special Agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder trace down tantalizing evidence of extraterrestrial or other bizarre happenings but never quite secure proof. (As if the FBI would be on the outside of a conspiracy involving UFOs and such, trying to find out what is happening, instead of quietly pulling strings from the inside.) The new episodes follow closely the tried-and-true conspiracy themes of the original series; people obviously have not yet had their fill of UFO and conspiracy tales.
