As long as there are Americans it will never die!
That was the point of my post Lois. Not only has ufology and cryptozoology become a part of our folklore it is now a business. Think of the photos, videos, phony ghost detecting equipment, some of it costing thousands of dollars, tv shows making millions, tourist dollars to visit haunted sites all over America ( I’ve been to a few, mainly Gettysburg), and the souvenir trade is flourishing. We’ll make a buck off of anything, as long as it’s legal of course. there will always be believers and along with them comes profit. It’s the American way. Why do you think they hate skeptics?
