I agree.

It's the same problem. The debunkers think they have all the
answers, but some ufologists also act the same way... there are
various explanations that are plausible for the ufo phenomenon,
but just as with crop circles, I think more than one may be
involved. It isn't all as black and white as some would like to
make it out to be. I just bought and am now reading 'Witness to
Roswell' but I also have various books by Jacques Vallee, Michio
Kaku, Carl Sagan, etc. The point is simply about being open to
different ideas.

I think this also applies to the 'drones' debate. Some Listers
were quick to debunk it all, and never did respond to my or
others' note that there were additional eyewitnesses who should
be taken into account. But maybe observations like this aren't
taken as seriously coming from anyone outside of the 'inner
circle', per se, of ufology (myself being, as many here know, a
crop circle researcher and planetary exploration supporter,
although I used to be actively involved with MUFON in the early-
mid 90s).
