I know that my choice to research UFOs has alienated me from an even larger portion of the population than I already was. When I taught human evolution some people literally believed I was Satan. So now that I am both an evolutionist and a ufologist, I guess I am doubly ostracized from mainstream culture. But both are real. Evolution happens. UFOs exist. I became an evolutionist because that was my primary study in school and the theory is as certain as heliocentrism. I became a ufologist because my best friends saw a large, black triangular UFO close up, and I wanted to join them in their quest for the truth–because I love them. These choices have made me an outcast in this culture. So be it. I have made a lot of choices in my life that I truly regret. But being an evolutionist and a ufologist are not among them. My heart is filled with wonder, not shame.
