When you consider all of the allegations and controversy, it is actually very difficult to determine if UFOs or aliens exist, unless one lands in your lounge.<quoted text>
PLENTY of people believe in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, etc.
If UFO's and ghosts are to be studied, they must be studied too!
To write off the Easter Bunny is to be a poor scientist
It is difficult to determine whether a UFO is of alien origin, or just some government military experiment. Many skeptics of the government, particularly the U.S. government, have made claims that their government remains 5 to 10 years ahead of the public in technology. If the government wants its people to believe in alien invasion, they may be quite capable of staging the whole thing. It could possibly also be used as a coverup for plundering resources in other countries, if the "War on Terror" sales pitch ever fails.
