Reply letter to Skeptic Magazine

The article entitled, Answering Public Questions On UFOs and
Aliens, by David Morrison, reminds me of why I am glad that I
did not renew my subscription to Skeptic magazine.

Whether UFOs are real or not, Morrison's article fails basic
standards of logic. It makes me wonder about the quality of his
degree in astrobiology.

Meteor showers, Comet Holmes, and tornadoes are all events with
high levels of predictability. Obviously, there will be many
more photos of these objects than UFOs! UFO sightings are _not_
predictable events and 90% of the ones that occur are improper
identifications.

Morrison's attempt to compare the frequency of evidence
available for non-predictable events to predictable events is
not worthy of a first year high school debater, let alone a
scientist.
