I believe there are lots of things flying around that are unidentified.

Do I believe they are full of aliens who have mastered faster than light travel and yet still have an odd penchant for kidnapping the stupidest, most backward, trailer dwelling rejects humanity can produce? Errr... no.

Nope. There are too many secret military aviation projects we hear about years after they've been succesfully finished for me to wonder about lights appearing somewhere they "don't belong".

"Mars Attacks!" was fun to watch though.  Wink

I'm open minded about ET. Gotta see to believe, but can't disbelieve that there's something way out there that's smarter than us.

As for whether they're already here - no, I don't believe that.

You caught me....

I admit it. I'm biased against Wife Beater wearing, cheap beer swilling, Nascar wannabe reject trailer trash that sucks down wellfare checks because they got laid off twelve years ago... and the best story they can tell is about when "dem aliens" came and kidnapped him.

I can't live with my bias anymore... please re-educate me master.

I don't think little green aliens are hopping on their crafts wanting to abduct us or even control our minds.

I mean if you are not familiar with the sky, any unusual object can make you jump to erroneous conclusions. But there is a group of people who are very familiar with the sky—by some estimates there are as many as 100,000 amateur astronomers in the US alone—who spend many hours every week doing nothing but looking into the sky. They own telescopes and binoculars and spend every clear night outside looking up. These folks are looking at the sky all the time. Yet, of all the people who claim to have seen a UFO, not one has been an amateur astronomer.

As a matter of fact, I've never heard or read about any amateur astronomers seeing something in the sky they absolutely could not explain. Yet they spend far more time looking at the sky than ordinary lay people and statistically should see far more UFOs! How can this be?

I do believe however that we are not the only ones in this vast universe. Space is so big...why the hell would ET come all the way here to our insignificant little planet and draw crop circles and mutilate cattle (or even pose for photos for B744F for that matter)?

Anyway...even if faster than light travel is possible, then where are the aliens? Our civilization has been around for a few thousand years, and we are starting to explore the near reaches of space. If we had faster than light travel, we could populate the entire Galaxy in just a few thousand years. Even with slower than light ships we could do it in a few million years at most.

That may sound like a long time, but not in the galactic sense. Elsewhere, a star like the Sun, only a few hundred million years older, might have had a booming civilization on one of its planets while trilobites swam in our own oceans. If this civilization decided to colonize the Galaxy, then by now the whole place should be filled with them.

But then, why do we see so many of their spaceships? Why do people believe that incredibly advanced aliens come here in spaceships, yet these aliens are still so dumb that a bunch of primitives who barely understand atomic energy can photograph them ten times a day.

So..no I am not a believer of UFOs...and sorry for the long post  Smile

I'd like it to be real, in the sense of "Gee wouldn't that be neat", but I don't really believe there are UFOs flying all over.

I have no doubt that there is other sentient life in the universe, and they have likely figured out space travel, just as we have, and who knows, maybe even FTL travel. Maybe we'll meet someone/thing someday, but for now, I tend to believe we have our little blue ball to ourselves.

Funny how the majority of "UFO's" are seen in the US and surrounding areas. Most of what people see is probably highly top secret US spy/war planes. The USAF has mind-boggling stuff in it's armoury, aircraft that would put Concorde or the F-16 to shame in terms of speed and agility. I do believe there is intelligent life out there, but i'm a bit sceptical that they've visited earth. Alien abduction claims from people are a bit weird though.

Be that as it may about top-secret aircraft, the National Geographic Channel program "Is It Real?" had an episode about UFOs and they pointed out something interesting: the popular alien abduction myth is an almost uniquely American phenomenon. UFO sightings are very popular in Mexico although many of these encounters with aliens tend to be "telepathic" as opposed to visual (whatever that means). No widespread reports of kidnappings though.

These alleged aduction experiences that people have are probably due to sleep paralysis, where someone in REM sleep experiences temporary paralysis associated with hallucinations. Depending on your cultural identity, you have your garden variety alien abductions here in the US, the kanashibari phenomenon in Japan, or a visit from the incubus or succubus during medieval times, along with many other types around the world (the old hag being my favorite).

Carl Sagan said it best about the UFO advocates claiming millions of people have been abducted: "It’s surprising more of the neighbors haven’t noticed."

That's priceless!  rotfl

You know nothing about the research of abductions and just like Reagan got you to believe everyone on welfare is popping out babies, you think everyone who claims they were abducted is a redneck.

Because of course, since B744F was abducted that would make him a redneck. And we ALL know B744F is no redneck.

I never said I believed in abductions, strawman. I disagree with them for many reasons. But to claim that the only people who have said they were abducted are rednecks is ridiculous. Thats basically like saying everyone who watches Nascar is a redneck

Well... how do we know that our methods of determining what those things are/were, are correct? Perhaps we don't know as much as we think we do. I think the human race can be an arrogant bunch at times. In any case, we at least don't have any evidence for the WMDs in Iraq, or god  Wink
