The pair briefly discussed the UFO phenomenon during an interview on HBO's 'Real Time With Bill Maher'.
If there's one person who ought to have at least some interest in UFOs, it's the man who played Fox Mulder in iconic 90s TV series The X-Files, however in real life, David Duchovny is more of a skeptic and does not share the beliefs of his on-screen counterpart.

That doesn't stop him from having his own theories about the subject, however.

During a recent interview with Bill Maher, he suggested (in tongue-in-cheek fashion) that UFOs could contain the alien equivalent of the criminals and misfits that were once cast off into the open sea as part of the "ship of fools" strategy for dealing with the unwanted elements of society.
This might explain their fascination with teeth drilling and anal probing, he quipped.

"Some alien civilization was fed up with their sex offenders and their dentists, and put them on an intergalactic ship, and sometimes they come around us," he said.

Maher, meanwhile, suggested a potential explanation for why UFOs keep buzzing US Navy pilots.

"Because that's who they are casing to attack," he said. "They are seeing what they can do."

You can check out the interview below.

Bill Maher acts like a child.

Not sure if Duchovny is joking or not, but it seems pretty strongly that the situation is most likely the reverse, when considering the far-too-prevalent (corrupt) type of person on this planet who is drawn to power, authority, influence, which is almost certainly why the (apparent) aliens avoid anything open with humanity to begin with.  The Ship of Fools is right before our eyes.  No need looking elsewhere.

Duchovny may be an alien 'hiding in plain sight'.

It would take someone with knowledge beyond anything we know to say we are alone than for those who say we are not..

That comes up every time my sister and sister-in-law have a conversation.  They used to make me roll my eyes with how much they hung on his every word and now make me do so because they are over him and say he's a republican
