When discussions re: UFO's come up, I usually clam up these days. Like I said, I KNOW what I experienced. I have related this story in the past and the usual response is disbelief. So generally I keep my mouth shut on the subject. Tyson's pompous know-it-all attitude touched a nerve, and made me want to comment. But apparently, not enough of a nerve to want be labeled as a "UFO nut" again.
And yet, you managed not to this time.
You obviously missed the point about arguing from ignorance. You don't KNOW what it was. You just assume you do.
I am not discounting the fact that you saw something; I'm just arguing that you don't have any proof of what you saw.
I believe that there is an invisible man in the sky who controls my thoughts and actions and I have to appease him or my VIP pass will be revoked and I can't go to the big party he holds for those who do what he says. How do I know he exists? Well, a friend was dying, they asked the invisible man for help and he got better. I saw it with my own two eyes.
