Oh dear Santiago

What an utterly bankrupt response! Of course I don't know what
you're talking about because you said nothing. That is why I
asked you to elaborate. And now, what is anyone to infer from
your vacant and evasive reply, but that you have absolutely
nothing to say?

Your reflex 'pelicanist' jibe is pathetic and so far of the mark
it is laughable, as a number of "real" so-called pelicanists
with whom I have had very lively and _very_detailed_ arguments
over cases that I regard as significant would tell you.

It seems to me that you have no understanding of the need to
address basic physical-optical and geometrical-optical questions
in such a case, and if you wished to send out a signal to anyone
with sense that your case for these "global UFO fleets" is empty
of science or sense then you could do no better than this.
