I think there are a few different types of UFOlogists
One type is wanting to find smoking gun proof..they wont listen to the different alien types, where they come from, etc etc...they simply want to
establish the base
the next type are people interested in a bit of both...they want to find the proof and want it established, but they are already believers and so
investigate almost equally in the philosophy of them, listen to the storys, read the books, etc (this is perhaps the majority of ATSers)...they
reserve belief fully, but they secretly do kinda believe..they just want the proof to match what they already believe.
The final type are the true believers...they dont care about truth, they dont even look at reports or listen to people offering reasonable
explanations...they focus on the stories and light candles trying to call down ET, calling every satellite in the sky a starship, etc. For them, this
is a religion.
This is also equal to religions...
one group cares not for stories and simply want proof first off of paranormal
one group will sort of believe, and reads stories and such, but will also call a oddly burned piece of toast just toast verses a sign
and one group that...well, you know. religonuts
I think both the proof and stories are important overall, proof moreso for now until it is solified as fact...but the stories certainly do attempt to
put context on a field that is simply unknown for now.
