I agree that Seth is no fool. However, a major motivation might
be recognition on the part of the generally anti-UFO SETI
community that if aliens are visiting, as the evidence indicates
they are, SETI makes no sense. There go the research grants,
nice positions, etc, and a need to apologize for all the silly
things that have been said about UFOs by the Silly Effort To
Investigate community.

There is an entire chapter in my new book, Flying Saucers And
Science about SETI. Due out by the end of May.
