|The ostensibly "serious" and "respected" learned...|

(From UFOM Vol 24 #5)
In a nutshell, Nye does not read "UFO Dean" Stanton Friedman's books, for example, because Friedman's books are, in the words of uber-skeptic Michael Shermer, "...Ridiculous nonsense apart from good science and a distracting foolishness serving only for the destruction of same." I paraphrase, but I think the preceding is expressed even a little better than alternative fundamentalist skeptic Michael Shermer will express it, himself. The point is: Bill Nye, as ready example of where science rubber meets the existential road, won't even look at the evidence. His mind, such that it is typical of his guild—or geld—is made up.
