It was probably better for society back when there was ridicule attached to UFO reports, rather than taking them seriously, like is becoming popular now. That is because, as the Bible tells us, there are forces smarter than human which want to destroy humanity with deceit. Science is dependent on human understanding, and cannot tell us what these things really are, so the smarter forces can define them and we cannot know better.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LordGod had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
