Thank you for taking the time to reply Don.

What we now see in the skies and report as UFOs is not what was
seen half a century ago. This is clearly evident when one makes
a quick comparision between the UFO images taken in the mid-20th
century with the UFO images taken in the late 20th and early
21st century. Although the modern day UFO images far outnumber
the old UFO images, the classic "nuts and bolts" flying saucer
is notably absent from the newer UFO images which are usually
very small and indistinct.

If one still sees flying saucers or fleets of ET craft in the
the UFO images taken in more recent times and outright rejects
all other more probable explanations such as lens flares and
birds, then I see this as an expression of their religious
beliefs rather than a rational scientific deduction. As for this
new UFO 'religion' being better than the one based on the Bible
itself (not man's interpretions and later day fairy tales) which
records the encounters and revelations by beings not from this
world I during the past 3000 years or so more, would have to
disagree with you on that Don.

As for my earlier e-mail reply, it dealt with "glories", those
rare and mysterious glowing objects often seen from the air and
sometimes on the ground too.

My e-mail also included how I still got to clearly see the thin
crescent of the eclipsed Sun when the window blinds in the
airplane I was in were closed. This happened on the same flight
we had a near collision at night with a red UFO during the
landing approach to Cuba. Did you ever get confirmation from the
Canadian flight crew about this serious UFO incident that
happened in December of 2001?

BTW - I know that you are busy with many other important things,
but do not miss the special Nova program 'Intelligent Design on
Trial' on PBS television. Though it has nothing directly to do
with UFOs, this trial was a victory for truth - science and
religion over pseudoscience and false religion.

The false religion in this trail was "creationism" which claims
to uphold the absolute truths of the Bible. Although creationism
is based largely on observations and facts, it like the new
religious-social-political movement in ufology are new religions
or belief systems with their man-made dogmas.

Unlike the Bible which has survived over 3000 years of attacks
by the greatest minds and remained unchanged, I doubt that this
ufological movement, a new or better(?) interpretation of the ET
revelations found in the Bible can survive such attacks.
