One hesitates to comment, for fear of making it sound as if it
merited more than a horse laugh. I guess, though, that in the
wacky world of ufology 2007, Ed Gehrman is Galileo.

One is reminded of Orwell's famous crack about vacuous arguments
that seek to give an "appearance of solidity to pure wind." On
the other hand, unlike the creations of clueless ufologists'
fanciful imaginations, pure wind actually _exists_.

But if you want to believe Ed Gehrman is the Galileo of our
time, be my guest. And never you mind all those laughing
