Thank you for this link. I have just read it and I feel the need
to react witout delay to this text.

To me, it is a good exemple of the extreme confusion spread
continously in  ufology, since the days of John Lear et al. It
mixes many things in such a way as to cast doubt on all of them.
I feel that it's a good text for "useful idiots", as Jacques
Vallee called them in his book Messengers Of Deception. As a
matter of fact, he is himself an expert in the genre.

I noted the pique of Paul Kimball against Exopolitics. I am a
bit surprised because I did not hear him make such negative
comment at the X Conference, which we both attended a few days
ago, and where several proponents of Exopolitics were also

It would have been interesting, though, to have such a debate,
at the final panel.

By the way, there was, inded, a clash, when journalist Richard
Farley grabbed the microphone to launch into a violent critique
of several other members, telling them, in effect, that they are
some kind of useful idiots who don't know what they are talking
about. Shortly after he left the room and was not seen again.

For my part, I was far from agreeing with all the opinions
expressed at that Conference, but I do not approve of such a
rude conduct, like most participants.

Any other comments from this List?
