You are all terribly terribly wrong... ...and I can't prove it!
See, what we have here are two diametrically opposed sides, with lots and lots of reason, logic, and conviction, but no hard evidence in support of
their statements. That's the inherent flaw in a discussion like this. Any of us can come up with any theory we want to explain everything from
Roswell to Stealth Jets... but unless you have proof, it's nothing more than a philosophical or religious discussion, and should be treated as
Now think about how hard it is to convince someone else that their religion is wrong, and how yours is right. Now also think about how very few people
on this planet have the capicity to seriously think about philosophical quandries, and how easily confused the rest end up. A good example is that
this post will more than likely be ignored, and people will continue arguing on a point that can never be won by either side until concrete evidence
If however, someone can grok what I'm saying, let's see if we can take a more philosophical instead of arguementative approach to this, because it
is an intriguing subject regardless.
So for those of you who are a proponant of military jets pretending to be UFOs, I would ask to what aim and purpose? After all, the testing of
X-Planes is easily enough done in secret at Groom Lake (aka The Ranch). A place so secure that no one has managed to get inside it, and to get a story
out, unless it was approved. There is ample space there. And at night, there is ample room in the skies everywhere. Jaynes magazine keeps excellent
documentation, and had specs on Auroroa long before it became announced publically, due to dilligent sky-watching, interviews, and respectability.
With other non-hoax UFOs, seen during the day, in areas not secured, why wouldn't Jaynes have any record, and why would the military risk such
flights? And moreso, what would be the point in sewing distrust and animosity among the populace towards the government at large? What would you say
they hope to accomplish?
And to those of you who believe they are UFOs and not military aircraft, what is it that makes you believe the UFOs would deal strictly with
the government, and limit their contact in this way? How can you so easily assume we can even reach a level of communication possible that a deal
could be struck and held to? Would you agree that aliens are the religion of the 20th century? After all, with no proof, only signs and omens, so many
believe in these beings so much more powerful and more mysterious than ourselves. In many religions, there is a need to evangelize and spread the
word. Perhaps in old and ancient art, these UFOs are the artists way of evangelizing their religions in the same way that classical artists might
portray Jesus, or the Tower of Babylon, or Moshe...
I am curious to hear insights, not arguements and mud-slinging. Would anyone humor me?
