... Fortunately, the responsibility for providing evidence is on the part of
the person making the claim, not the critic. It is not the responsibility
of UFO skeptics to prove that a UFO has never existed, nor is it the
responsibility of paranormal-health-claims skeptics to prove that crystals
or colored lights never healed anyone. The skeptics role is to point out
claims that are not adequately supported by acceptable evidence and to
provide plausible alternative explanations that are more in keeping with
the accepted body of scientific evidence. ...

Im often asked the question, "Do you think there is extraterrestrial intelli-
gence?" I give the standard arguments -- there are a lot of places out there,
and use the word *billions*, and so on. And then I say it would be astonishing
to me if there werent extraterrestrial intelligence, but of course there is as
yet no compelling evidence for it. And then Im asked, "Yeah, but what do you
really think?" I say, "I just told you what I really think." "Yeah, but
whats your gut feeling?" But I try not to think with my gut. Really, its
okay to reserve judgment until the evidence is in.
