Interesting question. It seems to me that in the ET-school of
ufology, the reason hokey evidence is allowed to co-exist so
contentedly with more likely evidence is because as soon as the
evidence becomes too interesting to ignore the subject will be
appropriated by institutional science and better minds than are
currently available to it. A disaster for some.

The rejection of this 'best evidence' (by believers, anyway), I
think, emerged from a genuine fear that it was real. If it were
real, a lot of self-conferred authorities, pseudoscientists and
hucksters would be trampled in the rush for understanding.
