Maybe we should just go whole hog and start a church, Don.

When it comes to anybody's positive assessment of UFOs as
genuine anomalies, it's never that person's opinion, point of
view, analysis, judgment, perspective, reading of the evidence,
or whatever. It's always just his or her "belief." I mean, what
else could it possibly be?

Now, let us pray.
