The funny part is that when someone offers an opinion, if it doesn't
meet the 'craft from elsewhere in the universe' the opiner is labeled
a "debunker". Thereby, cutting off any dialog.

Name calling will not produce a solution. This is one of the
major problems with the investigation of anomalous phenomena.

The name calling.

Ufologists could take a clue from the astrophyicists who are
enlisting scientists from many different fields to develop solid
theories about possible life on other planets - to examine the
evidence so far at hand.
