Compassionate debunking

This thoughtful post from SkepticBlog praises an author/researcher for her sensitivity in helping people who claim to have encountered aliens by presenting them with a valid alternative explanation for what their senses have experienced.

It is encouraging to know that many of these people welcome the alternative explanations — they are not hell-bent on believing in aliens but have merely been unaware of any natural phenomena that could explain their experiences.
