Perhaps the reason is that what you posted is not, in fact, the case. Most astronomers aren't "anti-UFO". But for the most part- save a few-they are profoundly ignorant about the subject but often get called in as the experts to explain a case away when in fact they have no history orknowledge on the subject. That's what I object to. As for the exterrestrial stance; as far as I know the majority of astronomers believe that there is probably life elsewhere in the universe. I can't remember seeing any investigators in recent years claiming that astronomers had a negative extraterrestrial stance. Your sentence in fact makes no sense; so no great wonder that you have never gotten it. Your talent for mixing apples and barbells is truly astonishing. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
