It appears facts don't matter, as long as it can be tied to some
non-ET explanation... no matter how much of a stretch of reality
it takes.

If the explanation is an absolute embarrasement, then we fall
back to the theory that someday, some time, at some point, some
non-ET explanation will come forth.
