To answer your questions, I am a believer, having seen them up close and had the "taken" experience, and missing time. And I am a reader too. I have read, over 10,000 books in my time, not counting magazines, papers, documents and anything else I could lay my hands on.
I have always had an insatiable desire for knowledge. I can't help it, if a day goes by that I do not read something, I think of it as a wasted day. Yes, I have read plenty of UFO/ET books, both fiction and true stories. I didn't really believe in them until I saw them, then everything changed.

Thank you for the links.I'll be reading up on those for sure.I have never doubted the existence of ET's but i have to doubt the sincerity of some of the "researchers" in the field.It's a shame that there are some who write ridiculous books with fanciful stories just to make people believe in their theories.Oh wait,we've built churches around the same thing.

Yes, some so called researchers can be a little on the shady side.

However the good ones...aka Dolan, Good, Marrs etc, give a really good insight into whats going on.
