The problem is that some ideas simply get dismissed out of hand,
based only on personal bias, not facts. That's why I like
Stanton's idea of a "gray basket" where non-provable ideas can
be put on the back burner until further evidence perhaps comes
along, instead of just being discarded altogether.

How many times has mainstream science declared something to be
impossible and then later proven wrong? Have we learned nothing
from history?

If ufology is ever going to make more progress, maybe it _needs_
to start listening more to various possibilities.

Again, just a comment from the "peanut gallery"...
