I reply:

No, I think as much as anyone it was me reacting to Rich Tyndall' s
always-interesting posts.

Documentation is credible from anyone applying rigourous and repeatable
scientific method. It is only not credible from hams if remains
anecdotal - as it would be even from a scientist specialising int he
field. I know this is obvious, but...

No one says there definitely is one. However, it *is* one hypothesis
that has been put forward to explain them - not the plausible hypothesis,
but a hypothesis nevertheless. My point was not that it is stronly
possible that ETI is involved - that's extremely unlikely. My point was
that no one had been coming up with *any* explanation.

(I haven't chased down the references supplied by Chris Boyce, so I don't
know how satisfactory they are. I suspect if *he* was satisfied, then
they're satisfying.)

Evidence is the product of scientific inquiry and experimentation. No
experiment, no evidence. That was all I was trying to say.

Thanks Richard;

I understand the nature of your interest. I was merely pointing out the nature
of mine.
