But recall, Bob, that every believer was once a non-believer.
You have to admit that there's an awful lot of intelligent,
savvy people out there who are believers, even after considering
the skeptical side - I would venture to say more so than with
almost any other "paranormal" enigma. So when I say, the
skeptical writings have been discarded, and you say, yes, by the
believers, well, I say, that's an awful lot of discarding by an
awful lot of intelligent folks.

A press conference is a venue for getting a certain point of
view across. The opposing camp is free to hold its own press
conferences. I don't see anything intellectually dishonest with
stating to the press that UFOs are real, without qualification..
