Arrow Ufologist Jacques Vallee on Skepticism

I searched "Jacques Vallee" and JREF on google to see if there were any discussions on him and his research in "UFOology."

Needless to say I just found scattered comments of him in threads and stuff, but I did come across this page from "Snarly Skepticism . . . (and Unofficial JREF Watch)":

Quote:
Skeptics, who flatly deny the existence of any unexplained phenomenon in the name of 'rationalism,' are among the primary contributors to the rejection of science by the public. People are not stupid and they know very well when they have seen something out of the ordinary. When a so-called expert tells them the object must have been the moon or a mirage, he is really teaching the public that science is impotent or unwilling to pursue the study of the unknown. (Vallee, J., Confrontations, New York: Ballantine Books, 1990.) -- Jacques Vallee
