If someone discusses UFOs at a party, do you assume they're a visionary or bonkers? Do you consider yourself a believer or a skeptic?
I'm a skeptic, but not one who dismisses out-of-hand any phenomena that a very wide range and very large number of people have been reporting for centuries despite the sudden, fifty-year-plus, faddish social fascination with it that has spawned intentional acts of fakery and drama for both profit and supposed "disproof" of these phenomena. Conclusive proof or disproof has never been presented. I would be a fool to commit myself to a side that claimed to have absolute hard fact -- no one does, and that remains the only reasonably justifiable conclusion.
I'd never be fool enough to assume either "visionary" or "bonkers".
