I'm a less nuts-and-bolts oriented member of the List, though I certainly think nuts-and-bolts physical evidence is the most important. This discussion goes back to what I've said many times here. Science is holding itself back from the "next level" of scientific knowledge by insisting that if it can't be replicated by everyone who tries, it's not real (or something along those lines.) Demanding total repeatability, or evidence you can touch, is indeed the safest haven for scientists to work in. You can't argue with totally repeatable phenomena which can be done by anyone. But I believe there is a _huge_ body of knowledge beyond what is totally repeatable. _Huge._ All the quantum and parallel dimension theorizing certainly point in that direction. As long as not repeatable on demand phenomena are ridiculed, UFOlogy won't get much further than it is now, in my opinion. Indeed, not-repeatable on demand phenomena seem to me to be at the root of some of the long debates, though not mentioned by name. It will be somewhat messy to begin to seriously study the advanced, not-repeatable-on-demand phenomena, and weeding out those who claim "special abilities" but are fakes will be necessary, unpleasant work. My guess is a majority of those claiming to have "special abilities" are fakes, but definitely not all. Another problem will be that people with genuine special abilities may not want to be studied, for fear of ridicule, career damage or loss, and negative impact on their families. But since when is unpleasant work in large amounts an excuse for not studying phenomena that just keep on happening, and show remarkable similarity to some of the observed properties of UFO incidents?
