*I am aware of Jung's position in this matter. The witnesses who convinced me, when previously I had believed the encounter was with Project Mogul balloons, don't seem to evince any religious fever or even interest. They're just reporting what they claim to have witnessed. But to evaluate that, you'd have to view the video, which, as you previously indicated, isn't worth your time.
