On 12 July Cyborgology picked up on Ryan Britt's question, posed in Inverse: “How come there have been fewer reports of flying saucers and alien abductions in the age of the camera phone?” Cyborgology takes this further and finds a rather unexpected response in turning against the question, putting it upside down. Author David Banks counters Britt: "The loss of modern American mysticism could easily be chalked up to our ability to capture everything, but when has irrefutable proof ever really stopped people from believing things?" In the end, it wasn't smartphones alone that killed alien abductions. Also missing was "an attendant cynical desire to prove others wrong." Check out the original Cyborgology piece here.
