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.
