I find it surprising that an Australian doctor who isn't a
subscriber to this List has found it necessary to mount such a
robust rebuttal of this theory. Why has this Earthbound theory
attracted his attention?

I'm only a guy in Edinburgh. I know no more, nor no less about
UFOs than anyone on this list.

I'm happy to debate the issue with Dr. German, but I can see it
developing into lines of evolution, religion, and theology which
will probably annoy a lot of people on the list.

I'm happy to discuss this with him privately, but if EBK gives
me the nod, than I'll do it publicly on this List.

[If Dr. German subscribes --ebk]
