What skeptics? I don't believe Jerry is a skeptic. Re-read what
he has stated above. Had I been reading Keel's stuff early on, I
would have been a skeptic too. I've never been starry-eyed.
There are many researchers whom are quite capable of skimming
off the effluent that floats to the surface, and I suggest to
you that most of them are in a better position to discern what
is worthy of research and what isn't. The thing is, they look
first and condemn afterward, if the case warrants it - not right
off the mark as your run-of-the-mill skeptic does.
