I am of the opinion that references to "extraterrestrial," phenomena are more likely to be "extra dimensional."

Wouldn’t that be cool!

I wonder, what probability analysis are you using to justify “more likely?” How do we assign probabilities to extraterrestrials vs inter-dimensional travel?

Seems to me that claims of observations are more likely to be folks seeing weird shit that is just unusual, but has nothing to do with little green men.
I am just of the opinion that J. Allen Hynek was right.

About which claim? Psychic surgery, nature elementals? Hynek made so many unfounded claims that he was ousted from the scientific community.

A shame really. He’s an example of a trained scientist who departed from the scientific method to pursue fame.

Why would a FEer, and hence proponent of the zetetic method, believe the non-zetetic ramblings of a disrepute?
Actually, he's an example of what happens when you disagree with the boss (who happens to be a dick and has a gun in their hand).
Are you under the assumption the 'boss' is wrong to disagree with someone? If I were rejected from the scientific community for making claims that unicorns fart rainbows, the sheer fact that I was ousted makes me right?
Tom is wrong most of the time. Hardly big news, don't you think?

Who is this boss you speak of? I have never heard of him.

Im a bit of a self imposed expert on ufos, so here's my stig.

There mostly military aircraft and other large organizations.  They've pro ably been around for a really long time.  Specifically the discs that use electromagnetism to fly.  Because of the sensitive and maybe off nature of there missions (as appears to a lay man) they are not really talked about with the general public.   And of course there's other kinds of Ufos Or UAVs in the sky which many countries have.

I think extra-dimensional travel or even time travel is as reasonable an explanation due to the almost inconceivable distances involved in interstellar travel.


Plus that whole rockets not working in a vacuum thing.

Looks like a multiple kill vehicle. Also, if it is an alien craft, I highly doubt there would be actual aliens in it. Alien civs probably send out probes to explore long before sending people, just like we do.

Saying "Aliens would probably do...." seems a little silly.

Nah. I doubt ETI will be wildly different from us, at least in their intent.
