IQ: Pop quiz 

Pop quiz: what's green and mushy on the inside, crusty on the outside, and travels in a circular dish? If you said aliens, you are correct! Some people look to the heavens hoping to find their "pie in the sky." Others expect flying saucers. Either way, trying to figure out the secret of what's out there is an all-American pastime (see cover story).

Does the government know more about UFOs than they are telling us? Possibly. I think the government has a lot of secrets.

Why are most people claiming UFO abduction middle class and white? Maybe we want attention, because we are not recognized as a minority.

Is the UFO phenomenon based in reality? Probably. I can't imagine that God's not big enough to have other lives in other places.

What does the government know about UFOs that they aren't telling us? If something has been found or something has crashed, I think they know. They don't want to release whatever technology is out there ... they just don't want the other side -- you know, anybody over in Europe or Russia at the time -- to have it.

What is your favorite UFO movie? I've always had a soft spot for Close Encounters [of the Third Kind].

Is the UFO phenomenon based in reality? Ya, I personally think that they're out there. There's just been too many incidents to ignore it.

What does the government know about UFOs that they aren't telling us? Nothing. The American government would never deceive the populace.

What is your favorite alien abduction story? There are no alien abductions. Such claims are simply the artificial infatuations of lowland farming peoples ... who happen to live near natural landing fields in rural areas.

What is your favorite TV show about aliens? Mork and Mindy is very amusing.

Is the UFO phenomenon based in reality? Of course not. There are no aliens, and we humanoids are alone in the universe.

What does the government know about UFOs that they aren't telling us? Probably their technology. I got a theory ... the nuclear technology that we have now maybe became UFO technology.

What is your favorite alien abduction story? There is a movie called Fire in the Sky. That was based on some true events. There was like four or five guys that all collaborated on the story.

Is the UFO phenomenon based in reality? Yes, it's based in reality. It's just ridiculous to think that you're alone out here.
