Does anybody follow any of this? Possibly, as the last sentence
above implies, it's because our correspondent has the mind and
humor of a 7-year-old.

From that mind, we learn the "one true ufology" is a religion.
And how does that mind come to that revelation? It works like
this:

Religion bad.
Ufology bad.
Therefore, ufology is a religion.

Proving that, as H. L. Mencken once observed, one horse laugh is
worth a thousand syllogisms.

I believe I hear equine laughter.
