That is an excellent example of why Ufology could never organize itself out of a paper bag and never will.Sobriety toward the subject translates into cartoons and an odd sort of schizophrenia results where one imagination debates another as if this were all codified.What makes this even more surrealistic are the thin skins that prevail. Over what?No one outside of this subculture will touch the subject with a ten foot pole as a result.It's safe to assume this topic will remain in the interstatial space between A and B forever, consigned to religious mythology tailored for the 21st Century.

Such "looney devoteeism" is why the Invisible College remains for the most part sub rosa, but for some courageous members, such as Jacques Vallee and Thomas Bullard...

As a bright teacher once told me that Welcome Back Kotter had destroyed school discipline. Star Trek convinced now generations that space travel was mechanical and that the universe was teeming with bipedal life.Conspiracy nuts, and the like, make fringe anything their own common knowledge. Think abnormal psyche. Aerial phenomena teases us and Fermi helped out in his own way. And yet there certainly is aerial phenomena.This blog has pushed my skepticism to the point of questioning my own observation. Still, I try to remind myself on a regular basis that there really are unknowns and our interest is appropriate and not self abuse.To define and taint curiosity in terms religious mythology is itself short sighted. In all cases certainly there is much to be revealed. I do like the notion that we are seekers and explorers and we should not be distracted by the rabble.

Reading these reminds me once again that an aphorism that Robert Heinlein put into the mouth of one of his characters: "Never underestimate the power of human stupidity."One might also wonder why allegedly intelligent "skeptics" would also spend time at such a place... to quote another old saying: "A 'wise' man who argues with fools is not wise."
