While there are certainly cases where credible researchers believe that alien visitation is the best explanation, every UFO case that doesn't involve alien visitation, and that is the overwhelming majority, does have a natural explanation.

Sorry but rubbish. There should be no thought about using the "best natural explanation" for anything. All investigations should be done with an open mind and no prejudice.... and anything should be seen as a possibility. As soon as you start slanting towards the "common sense" reasons for something occuring thats when you start becoming a debunker and using get out of jail free cards like "Occams Razor" which the scienticists love being able to use when scientific proof isn't available.
