17. Not trying to change your mind at all...
I'm just saying, a lot of people who are a lot more knowledgeable than either one of us thinks there's something to it. I think MOST UFO stories are simple mistakes. I wouldn't go as far as delusions. We really don't know, so no one can really say one way or the other. We can have any opinion we choose, but we cannot say "yes there are" or "no, there are not" based on what we know.
