“I don’t need to look at facts to know that flying saucers are bullshit.”

The speaker, a friend, prides himself on being a rational thinker.

“But countless witnesses, including pilots, police officers and military personnel, have seen Unidentified Flying Objects,” I said.

“No,” he says, “what they have seen is identifiable and can be rationally explained.  A rational explanation exists, but we don’t know it yet.”

“Is it not possible, as a rational explanation, that intelligent beings from other planets pilot these UFO’s?”

“No,” he says.  “There’s a rational explanation, and it isn’t that they’re from other planets.”

“How do you know?”

“Because there isn’t any life on other planets.”

“What?  Earth is the only planet in the entire Universe that has intelligent life?”

“That’s right.”

“How do you know?”

“I know because I know.”

Yup, he sounds like a rational thinker to me, and an excellent example of Earth’s intelligent life.
