And here I thought this discussion was about possibly missing
unexplained UFO reports, not about any particular theory of
their origin and cause.

I'm sure I am not the first here to note the reappearance of
this dreary debunking trope, which demands that "aliens" be
forced into any discussion of UFO matters at first available
opportunity. Thus, since aliens can't be proved, any meaningful
discussion of UFO phenomena and related matters collapses on the

Another consequence, of course, is to reinforce the certainty
among many observers that - given the utter predictably of
certain rhetorical strategies from that quarter - when you've
heard from one debunker you've heard from them all.

What next? UFO witnesses are drunks? Oh wait, we've already
