Don:

You are so funny. If you thought the sentence didn't make any
sense, I wonder how you could respond. More, that you thought it
was an attack on UFO researchers/investigators. Now, I wonder
when UFO researchers/investigators will decide to give up
forever pretending everybody is against them.

BTW, you would be surprised how much many astronomers know about
UFOs. And, no, they can't recite verbatim chapter and verse from
a specific case. On that point, you are correct.
