Telling your kid, that he can’t go around telling people he saw a flying saucer, because people will think something is wrong with him or “us”.
I don’t think he went around saying he saw a flying saucer. If I see a flying saucer, I’ll go around saying I saw it. I might even take a crappy cellphone picture, if it’s there long enough.
Humans are hell bent on being the only life in a massive universe. That is farthest from the truth.
