Okay, fair is fair.

This thread has gone into 'Donnybrook Mode' and I've had to go
back to the source and must say the following.

Mr. Clark and Mr. Hall aren't vindictive mean men, they're just
trying to emphasize the importance of the scientific method. I
was that way too for years and was known amongst my news
colleagues as an old stick in the mud about it. If I couldn't
put it in a test tube I wasn't looking at it.

We need to have our scientific compasses set now and then as
this field of research can go way out beyond the fringes of the

However, there's something more.

I'm reminded of Star Trek. The original series and the sojourn
of the character Spock. His character came from a race who held
logic above all else. Yet this belief had stagnated his people
and he found himself at quite the quandary time and again when
logic didn't resolve the problem. Characters Capt. Kirk and the
other humans knew that science could only go so far. Sometimes
imagination and a leap of faith based only on our gut feelings,
hunches, could take us a step further in the right direction or
wrong. If we humans relied only on our five senses we'd never
have come out of the trees.

Science isn't resolving the UFO issue. Either because we don't
have enough of it or our science isn't real deal science. You
can science something to death and still not get a resolution.

Anyone whose ever worked around die-hard scientists know how
frustrating they can be as they'll sit and test and discuss how
to build a better dam while just outside the window the dam has
burst and the cattle and Ma are being washed away.

UFOs and the phenomena involved call for us to keep a level head
sure but not stop because science as we know it is unable to
resolve. Life doesn't wait for science. You have to go with what
you have. Sure there are some theories and ideas regarding UFOs
are beyond what most can tolerate but often the truth to a
mystery is far more intolerable or it would have easily been
detected. We can't resolve what we don't have the courage to
confront. It doesn't get more complicated than that.

Our five sense aren't the only perceptions we have. We're far
more perceptive than we give ourselves credit for.

So in all fairness if someone's theory or idea is beyond what
one can tolerate don't berate the person, just nod your head and
keep keeping on.

Science doesn't have to have a Mr. Angry Face to it.
