These Christian UFO debunkers are a bizarre lot. They've got no problem at all with the downright supernatural, but go into a frenzy at the notion of the merely unusual or exotic. >His bottom line is that since UFOs "can't get here from there", An utter fallacy, for reasons Stan Friedman (for one) has tirelessly explained. <snip> >Dr. Ross made three points in particular that curled my toes: >1.

John Keel has said that ufology is simply the demonology of the present day, in which case this list is brimming with "occultists." >2.

ETs could have parked a "mothership" in our solar system thousands of years ago and gone on to explore their immediate environment via small, convenient probes.

Again, Friedman and others have shed some very interesting light on exactly this point. It _is_ possible, and the reason it's possible is the concept of "need-to-know."
