  • UFOs?

    Aliens could attack at any time

    Well I don't know what to think. On the one hand, this. A fmr military pilot friend is strongly convinced, based on conversations he's had with others who he said were in positions to know, that ETs are flying around our "airspace". My grandfather tells a story about his aunt and mother seeing a UFO. My father-in-law has friend who swears upside down and sideways that they had a "close encounter." They have a detailed and scary story about that.

    And yet none of these stories is ever first-hand. It's never "I saw a freaking UFO and I swear it's true" it's always someone knows someone who says they saw a UFO.

    Have any of you seen an a UFO? For me this stuff is like ESP or Ghosts: I don't believe it, but I don't have any particular reason to disbelieve it either.

    Interesting question. Can't say I've ever seen one myself - and that goes for UFOs, ghosts and ESP.

    Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
    Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

    Treat others as you would have them treat you

      Strange, didn't think the UFO threat would be around until the whole terrorism thing dies down. All joking aside, I'm sure there's something going on, although exactly what it is I can't say. I do think some credible reports that aren't being followed up just because its a "UFO" is a shame.

          I've seen a few documentaries on TV from the Air Force to Local pilot accounts. There have been very real documented encounters on several occasions with unknown things, i won't call them UFO's as that term is beat into the dirt.

          People don't know what to think or believe but they see these things and report them all the time. I'll dig up links tomorrow if i can find them. I know Washington state has a reporting center.

            Well, I think that odds are pretty good that there's something out there that's more advanced than us. Whether or not they're visiting us isn't something that I'd even want to hazard a guess about... This is the sort of thing that I think the governments are able to cover up. It's easy to discredit any "kook" that comes up with a UFO/alien story.

            Who know? I wouldn't be surprised either way...

              I for one can't imagine a technologically advanced civilization using space ships and clunky metal vehicles. A type III civilization (capable of vast space travel, harnessing stars for computation, etc.) is likely to not even use bodies. you would probably never notice them if they'd come. And I don't think they have, or will.

                You might be interested to know that there is a department in the British Government tasked with investigating UFO reports called DI55 (Defense Intelligence 55). It was kept secret until fairly recently. There was a documentary about it a couple of weeks ago which had an interveiw with the guy that used to be in charge of it. If the government wanted to cover up UFOs why would they have a secret organisation tasked with investigating them?

                There is also an Americain equivilant but I can't rememebr what it's called.

                    Humans have been here for hundreds of thousands of years. We have reliable history for about 5,000. Why would UFO's have appeared only in the last 60 or 80 years?

                            Females have been circumcised all over the world for thousands of years. Why are we only hearing about it and passing laws against it in the last few?

                            Communication has improved immensely this past century. Radio, telephone and internet has changed our entire way of life. It used to be that if you didn't know someone personally, you couldn't talk to them. Now, we talk all the time to people that we've never even met.

                            So, it used to be that the only people that you could talk to about UFOs were friends and acquaintances that you didn't want to think you were a kook. Now, all the folks that think they've seen UFOs can read about each others stories in the newspaper, call each other and meet on a website.

                              I don't want to believe in UFOs or Aliens, but Im telling you...something is out there. You can count on it.
