Dear Larry:

I'm responding to your point about the difficulty in accepting
ideas which perhaps a majority of trustworthy, reliable
individuals find themselves also unable to accept.

To keep this short and simple, I really do think you have made a
most important argument in pointing out that it is the ignorance
that keeps us skeptics, regardless of the issues.

I don't believe in that other stuff you mentioned any more than
your hypothetical friend. I've not had reason to spend countless
days (and years) trying to determine if any of those "other"
ideas have sicentific basis. But, then I haven't experienced any
of that other stuff first-hand, either. I haven't felt the need
to find answers for those kinds of phenomena because I haven't
had the need to maintain my sanity where those issues are
concerned. I have experienced the UFO phenomenon, many times.
They haven't been wonderful, "spiritual" experiences either. I'd
much prefer to be your skeptic friend. I just can't.
I've not had a choice. I've been compelled to try to find
answers, just so I could maintain my sanity. If you've got some
logical, reasonable, explanations for the things that I've
experienced, hey...I'm listening. I'm game. Sock it to me baby!

So far, the answers I've been receiving have served to
substantiate my fearful UFO experiences...that what I saw was
real, and what happened, really happened. So, now all I know is
how little I know. I guess that's a start. It just seems rather
meager pickings at this point. I'd like them to land on the White
House Lawn too, in broad daylight. But, it probably won't happen
in my lifetime. In the meantime, I'm just listening to other
skeptics sing the "Twilight Zone" theme song.
