I returned to my reading of the latest issue of the Fortean Times, May 2010. On page 28 in an item referring in part to Professor Paul Davies.
"Back in his student days, Davies was a member of BUFORA and a believer in UFOs and intelligent alien life. In 1968 he wrote to protest about an article by the eminent physicist R V Jones that debunked flying saucers. Drawing upon the same arguments used by present-day UFO proponents such as Stan Friedman, the young Davies urged Jones to re-examine the hard evidence for UFO visitations that included ground traces and images captured on film or radar."
