Good grief, ufology can't have it both ways.

What I mean is that if the field wants to be taken seriously
challenges to standing theories will be made. Then, the recourse
is to refute the challenges. That is the 'scientific way'. I
understand most UFO researchers see their research as a 'new
baby' needing to be protected from the perceived threats of the
real world.

A very cute and cuddly stance to take. But, isn't it time for
the baby to learn to walk?
