Hi Isaac

Think that question epitomizes the mis-understandings about both
science and about ufology.

Science is all about logical questioning, so is ufology;
therefore ufology is science.

Mind you there's two approaches - "Advances are made by
answering questions - Discoveries are made by questioning
answers"
