I find it interesting that you seem to feel that ufology is a
cause to be supported or opposed, rather than a pursuit of
knowledge.  But from the tone of the conversation that I've
seen, I doubt anyone is interested in actually approaching this
with the idea of learning anything.

One can set up "straw man" arguments all day long if it makes
one feel better, but I doubt it will have much impact on the
field.  Perhaps it would be better for some to simply conclude
that ufology is a "myth" and move on.

I would also suggest that those who treat ufology as a "belief
structure" should also move on, which might help to reduce the
noise level somewhat.
