More psycho social babble, Joe. Consider the topic; Psychology Dissertation Study. Once you posit the belief aspect you are opening the door to the prospect of all witnesses having a psychotic event each time they have seem something odd in the sky. Let's not forget that we are always dealing with a group of licensed individuals who are working with a pseudo-science that has no scientific constant. Catch as catch can is the name of the game so there is no sense in introducing this subject as a viable aspect to the phenomenon. I really don't care what group Andrew is working with. They are not dealing with hard-core cases; they are attempting to stain it by intro- ducing a mental aspect to it-regardless who are reporting, what they are reporting- in what detail they are reporting and what is backing up the report. Any damn fool can find the nut cases out there and lump them in and poison the whole data pool. And cut the poor-mouthing Joe; your not fooling anyone. If I ever see anything positive/upbeat come out of your postings, it will be a day of wonder. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
