If true, it was a spectacularly poor strategy. It just ended up
making the investigators look like idiots.

The presentation of the each case (many of which I was familiar
with), was elaborated upon greatly, with very solid and real
alien, robot, and spaceship encounters being depicted in
substantial detail.

If at the end the investigators determined it was Venus, or
Swamp Gas, or whatever, it only succeeded in making the
investigators look like either fools or liars. We had been shown
very clearly what the encounter looked like (whether it
reflected the actual case or not was beside the point), and it
sure didn't look like Venus.
