People cool down.

If you can't discuss this topic without going at each other and trying to ridicule the other... Don't post.

Thank you very much.

There is proof of that in Roswell 1947, of a strange metal, as thin as tin foil, that does not dent, burn or cut, and returns to it's original shape post-stress. It was handeled by dozens of people, as well as the air force and a colonel. Today, that technology is known as shape memory alloys.


Until you can produce it physically or through a confirmed photographic record of the object, all you have is anecdotal evidence.

Again, ratings is everything, NOTHING would stop these ravenous reporters if there was a story there.

Sorry, I don't think you or anyone else is ignorant, (like you apparently believe of anyone that does not believe in UFO's and the tooth fairy), but there just ain't no story there Geraldo.

WHO DECIDES WHAT GETS PRINTED, WHAT GETS BROADCSTED? THE REPORTER OR THE CHIEF EDITOR AND THE EXECUTIVES ABOVE?

According to Jonathan Kolber in:

DEAFENING SILENCE: Media Response to the May 9th Event
The deafening media silence following May 9th's Truth of Disclosure implies an intentional process of failure to explore and reveal the truth...it implies censorship...there is active suppression. This is corroborated by the witness claim of 43 intelligence operatives on major media payrolls.

We live in a controlled society, one in which the control is secretive yet masquerades as openness. Yet, as proven May 9th, this control can be overcome by the concerted efforts of determined groups of persons. We must seek such opportunities again.




Former Director of CIA, Admiral R.H. Hillenkoetter
Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens (Like Frosty) are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel.—The New York Times, Sunday, February 28, 1960: “Air Force Order on ‘Saucers’ Cited,” p. L30. See also Disclosure, p. 58.




US Navy Pilot, Lieutenant Frederick Fox
There is a [military] publication called JANAP 146E that has a section that says you will not reveal any information regarding the UFO phenomenon under penalty of $10,000 fine and ten years in jail. So the secret has been kept...(from Frosty)

For the Roswell true believers:

Pulling back to look at the big picture, one must appreciate the slapstick aspect of the story’s basic premise. According to UFO theorists, hyper-intelligent aliens, having crossed light years through the yawning interstellar void with their super-advanced technology, reach the Earth, only to promptly blunder into the desert floor—either once, or several times, or perhaps in a flock like lemmings or beached whales! (Others suggest that two of their ships collided, after cruising safely for umpteen light years!) These inconceivably sophisticated craft, perhaps capable of transcending basic physics, failed to avoid flattening themselves on the state of New Mexico as a result of: very scattered thunderstorms (verified by the actual weather data); confusion caused by our marginal 1947 radar; an inability to evade a primitive 1947 WSMR missile (there was only one there in the time that passed between events and interviews); [30] or, a collision with a balloon!

After 55 years, there still isn’t a shred of evidence that a saucer crash occurred, but there is evidence far beyond a reasonable doubt that a series of regular terrestrial events did. The truth about Roswell is that it was always a marginal case, and for most of its history all interested parties agreed. Although it has been recently, and profitably built into a pop phenomenon, real evidence has only diminished with every investigation—including those by the most respectable UFOlogists. Small towns, enterprising individuals, and (most of all) book publishers and TV producers have kept the Roswell Industry alive, but the real-life foundation for the Roswell legend is now known in detail.

Roswell is the world’s most famous, most exhaustively investigated, and most thoroughly debunked UFO claim. It’s far past time for UFOlogists to admit it and move on. Those who hope to discover alien life are going to have to look where the aliens are—which is (if anywhere), somewhere else. Perhaps outer space would be a good place to start.



These interstellar traveling aliens crashed in the desert? LOL what a joke!

Yeah...what a joke?

We've had cars for a century, and yet we're still crashing them on a daily basis. Good technology is no protection from Murphy's Law my friend... We've gone from the Wright Brothers to Stealth Planes flying faster than the speed of sound. Guess what? They still crash now and then...

you know its amazing how the government managed to make 100,000`s of people claim they have been abducted.Hmmm... I wonder how government officials managed to dress up in really convincing alien suits,sneak into peoples houses,make as if their being abducted by aliens and putting these people in real convincing alien spaceships.Who would of know the government would have gone to so much effort.

Also its real amazing how government officials managed to convince people from all over the world.Oh yes and how do you explain loss of time?they must have mmmm.... set the clock ahead 2hours,3hours.

We are all intitled to our own opinions here but i most definatly disagree.Read the facts my goodfriend,you will see that the whole belief in E.T`s is toomuch of a big conspiracy to fake.Your looking at billions,possibly trillions used to fake this whole thing just inoredr to convert peoples attention.And then theres the fact of keeping them convinced,and making it so real.

So Neonknight

Are you saying that it is impossible for a spacecraft to crash?

Someone needs to tell NASA


While I will be the first to say there is no proof of the crash saying it has been disproved is just as false. I think any reasonable person would admit that there is a lot of unanswered questions and/or not answered very well. I have seen it "proved", I have seen it "debunked", I have seen the Debunking "Debunked".

The truth IMO is we will never know exactly what happened and I for one would not be happy with ANY explanation after the circle of lies not only from the Government but ALSO people just out to make a buck. Its like the person that lies to you over and over swearing each time that "this" one is the truth.

But to claim that its is impossible merely because ANY alien would be incapable of making a mistake or any UFO would be incapable of crashing is as ridiculous as those that claim it is "Proved" Because someone seen some tinfoil.

Even a simple line of questions, using logic as the method of asking, can be ignored if that's what it takes to keep oneself in the nice comfortable world view, where all evil is cleansed. It is the mind of a child, in a grownups body.

once again, partial quotes from the Skeptic article:

Here is a super sophisticated alien race, able to cross vast interstellar distances, only to crash in the desert?

(Conviently near an US Air Force base, so a vast Govt/UFO/Alien/Conspiracy/Complex can arise and sell millions of dollars of alien related goodies at your local supermarket checkout counter?)

This is not NASA, this is a race that would have to be far, far more advanced than us. We've only been flying manmade craft for 100 years or so, these aliens would likely have thousands of years of space travel under their collective belts.

So I have several reasons I don't think we've been visited:

  1. Backwaters of the Galaxy

    (We're hard to find.)

  2. No Radio Signals Found by SETI

    (They are not so advanced to avoid a crash in the desert, but they ARE so technologically advanced to hide any hint of radio signals.)

  3. Our Own Signals Have Traveled Only 100 Light Years

    (Unless ET lives in the general neighborhood of the Solar System, or he's been here all along. LOL)

  4. Media Would Have Uncovered It

    (Ratings people, or does Kang and Kodos' mind-control-rays extend to everyone in charge at Science, National Geographic and Time.)

  5. Any Coverup Would Already Be Exposed

    (It is the coverup that eventually becomes exposed. And if the Govt is actually controlling the media, than surely we would never hear ANY negative stories about the Govt. Oh thats right, the general media coverage of the Govt, is everything is just swell: we have the best Govt ever!

I disagree. I think that with the resources the U.S. Government has at its disposal it's entirely possible to fake. Heck, most of the faking comes from either hoaxers or wrong perception of explanable phenomena, such as light problems in cameras, new types of aircraft, ball lightning, etc...

HOWEVER... this is not to say it's impossible for alien visitations to have happened either.

My overall view is this, the vast majority of UFOs are, in fact, military aircraft, such as stealth jets or new types of X-Planes using human-bred technology that appears amazing to those that are unfamiliar with it. This would explain the secrecy, the media suppression, and the $10,000 fine for military personell talking about UFO encounters. After all, you wouldn't want your black programs to be exposed. It's a lot easier to accomplish this if you can control the flow of information, or at least heavily influence it.

But, as Gazrok has already shown us in this thread about FOIA memos even the U.S. Government has admitted to some sitings that they are unfamiliar with. Does that mean the UFO discs were aliens, or were those discs merely the work of unaffiliated human enterprises? Who knows?...well, obviously they know, but they aren't talking.

So, in essence, there is finally some hardcore proof for unexplainable UFOs, but that is not the same as proof of alien visitation. And the only way we'll ever truly know the truth is to attain a position in intelligence or research high enough to gain access to the unblah'd files. We could wait for the Government to tell us the absolute truth, but honestly, judging from these posts, unless they said something to the effect of "We've been in cahoots with them since the 40's," no one would believe it. So if you really want to learn the truth, go get a few doctorates in everything from aerospace engineering to quantum physics, and work your way up to an ES-5 government research position and hope that, someday, you meet the qualifications to view an eyes-only document on the subject.

There are currently in he neighborhood of 800 possible signals that SETI has picked up. Sure that doesn't mean definitly that these are alien civilisations, but alot of filtering and study has to be done before anyone can say yea or nay. I do agree that we may be a little off the beaten path, galactically and hard to find but not impossibly hard to find. The possibilty of visitation does exist, but I do concede that it would be rare at this time. But not forever.

    Unless you are absolutely oblivious of the differences. The above are phenomena made plausible by human nature. While, aliens, is a phenomena that is not recognised as a part of reality. It is in fact recognized as a fairytale. Further, when such conspiracies are exposed they are done by organizations with vested political interests.

    What interest would the media have in exposing the aliens, other than a genuine drive to know the truth?

    Since you have thoughts to share on the media issue, perhaps you would like to share your opinion on my questions on media function in our society? Look a little earlier in this thread. I would genuinely appreciate your thoughs on the subject. I hope you find the time to look them over.
