"Gentlemen, I would rather believe that two Yankee professors
would lie than believe that stones fall from heaven."

                                           --Thomas Jefferson

Like Jefferson with meteorites, you are telling us that UFOs
cannot be extraterrestrial because your theory tells you so.

Wouldn't that be a case of placing the theoretical cart before
the empirical horse - otherwise known as thinking
"back-asswards"?


Best,

Jeff
