The 1989 Belgium UFO flap was debated on the List last year.  The
debate turned out to be the usual: skeptics on one side, truth seekers
on the other.

As usual, the skeptics kept throwing in the half-truths and the wrong
facts.  As usual, the good guys kept coming at them to tell the untold
stories.  One skeptic tried to get an edge by showing he could read
French (Le Duc de Mendoza, je crois), but he was surprised at how many
people could do more then that: they could understand French.

As usual, the skeptics, when showed the evidence, picked up their
marbles and quietly went into silent mode.  Since a skeptic's attitude
is not based upon the facts but upon belief, there was no loss for
them here.
