>3. Is ufology a science?

No. Not even close. However, there are people who study UFOs and
use the scientific method.

>4. What _are_ UFOs?

I wish I knew. ;-)

>13. Does Paul Kimball give good radio?

Can't say - but it was fun doing the show with you and Errol.

That's a loaded question, but I would point out that ufology
hasn't helped itself over the years by focusing on crashed
flying saucer tales, claims of government conspiracy, and the
abduction phenomenon, at the expense of stressing the best cases
(and if anyone still thinks that Roswell is a "best case", then
there's not much I'm going to be able to say to change their
mind at this point).

>16. What is Best Evidence's effect on the general consciousness

Who knows, and probably.

>17. Is Paul Kimball kinder and gentler these days?

I was always kind and gentle. Warm and fuzzy, too.

Yes, for all the reasons I set out on the show. Pope is the here
and now. Guys like Mac are the future.

>20. Is Mac Tonnies the 21st Century's Carl Sagan?

Perhaps, but as a commentator and popularizer, not as a
scientist, obviously.

Maybe the anti-Sagan!

Best regards,
