You also have to take into consideration that alien beings with advanced technology may have a protocol in place not to interfere with less advanced civilizations. So we have a government that KNOWS or suspects aliens are here so they just play off that. Oh you had a UFO sighting did you? A light doing right angle turns at high speed and rising out of the lake bed? Well it must of been swamp gas! Everyone who saw it was completely delusional! It allows them to play off that for years and years. Then when the cat is actually out of the bag, then they will say well we didn't know for sure. Even though they been playing cards with Ralph down in the 20 story underground base for 50 years. The governments profession is to lie. Look at Obama, he lies to everyone over and over and over and everyone just sucks it up and accepts it. They even clap to it. Just as long as that paycheck keeps coming in!! They'll clap to their own mothers brains oozing out on the floor. These leaders are gutless and soulless.

Sure it would help that all dates, locations, etc. were definite but the waters aren't severely muddied and the phenomenon isn't tarnished to the point of complete dismissal due to minor indiscrepancies. The fact still remains that these occurrences do still exist and are still real. And even if that one quote or date or whatever is deemed unsubstantiated, there are more legitimate cases properly sourced that can take it's place. To me, it kind of comes off as nitpicking in effort to invalidate the phenomenon as a whole. A common debunk tactic.....


Not a 'debunk tactic,' but a hard and fast rule of scientific proof. Your cavalier attitude to reliability of evidence is hardly uncommon, buy strikes me as the fundamental flaw in the pro-UFO argument. If the quality of evidence doesn't matter, or is trumped by quantity, how can you avoid believing in ghosts, human levitation, human-animal metamorphosis, or chemical conversion of lead to gold -- all of them substantiated by numerous stories, "only one of which has to be true to verify the phenomenon".

It's an explain-away gimmick for lousy research and scholarship. And it has crippled the credibility of UFO claims, IMHO.

What they say is true: You have to see it to believe it.

I've seen so many things, with intelligence to their timing, there is far far more to this world and our surroundings than many people will accept.

The mechanics of observed PROVEN craft, far beyond the bounds of our technology.

Craft observed to literally warp out through some type of wormhole/hyperspace.

Descriptions and drawings of saucers and other aerial craft dating all the way back to 10,000 BC, far before the last 100 years.

Proof of an immense virtually infinite Universe.

Proof of quatrillions upon quatrillions of exoplanets per caluclations via our exoplanet program.



There is only one answer.

In this case, the poster I responded to cited a statement of opinion that may have had an incorrect date and location. That doesn't put a dent in the other cases or quotes that have been firmly established. In this respect, quantity does trump one "opinionated statement".

Concerning the UFO subject, most would attest to at least 5% of total cases possibly being extraterrestrial in origin. With that proclamation, why even spend time dissecting every single case? Maybe a certain case is a hoax, maybe not, but the admission has already been given that they exist so why bother?.....Although I personally have no problem with anyone trying to validate every single case. It stimulates good discussion.

As far as those examples you listed, I don't doubt any of it being true simply because humanity has a lot of uncharted territory to cover due to not learning everything there is to know about the nature of our reality. If you told me you witnessed any of the above occurrences then who am I to dispute your claim. It's not cemented but that would be +1 for the pro side (witness testimony). The only difference is we have other aspects to the UFO phenomenon to go along with witness testimony such as an alleged coverup, covert governmental involvement, and lots of anecdotal evidence to factor in. All of which make the likleyhood of there being a ET presence more acceptable.

An Extraterrestrial Presence On Earth is likely in my opinion.The universe has been creating life long before our existences. The architecture of this universe reveals the authors and their presence everywhere within their own work.


I believe there must be other life forms out there, but I would counter that ET presence on Earth is unlikely. We would be like finding a needle in a haystack inside a football stadium filled with haystacks.

It massive out there, as much as I would like it to be true, I just cant imagine these little craft flying billions of miles just to hover around Earth, flitting around, landing in forests and crashing now and again.


A slightly narrowed view imo.

If you aknowledge that there must be other life out there and asume that they fly a billion miles then chances are significant that they run into life somewhere at some time. Earth would be one possibility since we know for a fact life is present there and they would not have made the journey just to fly over our little "insignificant" earth specifically. It would be illogical to pass it when found and not have a closer look as would be with any other planet with life. Once found, it can be re-visited.

I have always thought that there is a reality test point, yet undiscovered, in the human brain, where an instrument could be developed to analyze it and determine if the subject being analyzed is communicating their recollection of an "incident" from actual experience or is manufacturing a story from obscure, but related data that they hold in their inventory of knowledge.

A device that definitively, without any ambiguity, would prove that what they are saying is an absolute, recorded, original experience.

We would find out so much, if some of the people mentioned in this "best evidence" category, were even willing to subject themselves to ultimate scrutiny such as this, and if they did, and the machine determined that what they said is truly something they actually experienced.. we could cross off the what and where, and enable us to truly study the how and why. Perhaps such a device is not that far off, considering the strides we are making with the study of the human brain.

even if we can prove an experience is real - it doesn't follow that the interpretation of that experience is correct

I understand why you are skeptical, and I think a lot of people choose to believe these are man made flying objects, but there is one thing many skeptics seem to ignore.

Not only do we have thousands of cases of UFO's, but a lot of the cases describe these craft moving in ways and at speeds that is currently WAY beyond what man is capable of. We have many reports from military men and officials stating these craft like to make 90 degree turns at high speeds, disappear in a flash etc. Humans can't come remotely close to creating a craft like this.

Are we really to believe thousands of people are all making this up? The chances are extremely low that every single person that ever reported a craft making otherworldly maneuvers in a craft is a liar or was mistaken. There has to be some truth to it all.

Apologies in advance as I've done a bit of skipping through. Let me guess though that if someone doesn't agree or is sceptical regarding us having been visited by extraterrestrial beings then they're automatically branded as a non believer full stop, or narrow minded etc etc.

Not the case, I hope I'm wrong but it's time to accept that in this life time we're not going to be contacted and we never have (In my opinion). Take what I'm saying here with a pinch of salt
Kepler has found how many Earth like planets? Many, ok I think there's roughly 10-20 billion Earth like planets in the Milkyway, what's the chances of there being an advanced living species? Probably 1 in 10/20 billion (i.e Us).

If we're the only ones in the Milkyway then perhaps lets look to Andromeda, after all it's only 2.5 Million light years away
I don't care how advanced they are, they're not getting a message (Never mind a craft) here any time soon. Don't go shouting wormholes just yet, my point just being the universe (Or universes) are huge, infinite. Needle in a hay stack is a major understatement.

Regarding life outside Earth, I'd say the Milkyway alone is full of it, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if they find some sort of microbiological life on Mars soon, or evidence of it being there previously. Regarding advanced life in the universe I also believe it's in abundance. It's just the distances that trouble me, the unthinkable distances.

Or we are in a simulation, I love that theory, I'd be happy to find out that's the case. I'd be happy if one of these UFO's would just land in a public place also. Don't hold your breath though

That logic works the other way as well. If we had alien technology way back in the 40s why did it take 50 years for the microchip and cell phones to make the scene?
NASA,computers to send our guys to the moon were room sized in 1969. Where was that alien technology when we needed it for you know , space travel?

It's a pity that the same arguments and counter-arguments are being constantly brought out, when it would be better to take a look at the evidence that we already have, and see what patterns there are. I think any theory about UFOs needs to account for the fact that before 1947, UFO waves came in very different forms. In 1896-7 and 1909 they were airships. In the 1930s they were mystery aeroplanes. The behaviour was similar (rapid movement, right angle turns etc.) but the appearance was clearly adopted as something we could understand. I recall an incident that Keel describes in The Mothman Prophecies. Keel and others were skywatching for the Mothman when they saw a light flying silently at a high altitude. Everyone got excited. The light went into a cloud, and when it came out, they could hear the sound of a light aircraft and see its navigation lights. They all relaxed. But when Keel thought about it later, he realized that the light had stayed in the cloud far too long to have been an aircraft... All this makes the phenomenon very interesting, but it doesn't match the simplistic "other people's space craft" notion. If we are dealing with something that can cloak itself in any form it chooses, how can any sighting be "proof" of any particular interpretation?

Don´t know about ´implying an extraterrestrial presence on earth´ but always thought these close range police officer UFO testimony was interesting as well.



“It was approximately 50 feet in length. There were portholes on the side but there were no visible signs of propulsion. The ship appeared to be metallic and gave off a bright glow. There was a low whirring sound coming from it.”
Police Constable Brian Earnshaw - Bacup, Lancashire,October 1969
Two other uniformed officers, PC Colin Donahoe and Malcolm Reader also witnessed the object from a different location.





“There was an eerie, greenish-grey glow in the sky. Then I picked out an object about thirty feet long and built up in three sections with the top looking like a dustbin lid. It gave off a high pitched whine. I was paralysed. I just couldn’t believe it.”
Police Constable Colin Perks - Wilmslow, Cheshire,March 1966




"The light would throb with an increased intensity prior to each change of colour and hover in the sky for some time and then dart and cover large distances, doing a number of right-angled turns at high speed".
Senior Constable Andrew Luhrs -Gladstone,Southern Australia,May 22, 1996




"I happened to look up and there was that UFO right above the cornfield, it was just hovering right up above the power lines. -i t was just like the ones you see on TV.
Then it took off like a bullet, just tremendously fast -if I live to be 100, I'll never forget it,"
Henrico County Sheriff A.D. "Toby" Mathews Richmond , Virginia, United States August 9, 1966




"At first I though we were seeing a ship on fire on the horizon towards Ilfracombe. But then it rose out of the water like a blood-red sun, a good deal larger than a full-sized harvest moon.It remained at sea level, then suddenly took off at a fantastic speed towards the Atlantic."
Chief-Inspector Reginald Jones, of "D" Division, Glamorgan Police - object also witnessed by another officer,09-01-1957.




"It was cigar shaped and yellow in colour.It travelled along slowly for a few seconds, then shot off into the night at a fantastic speed. We didn’t know what it was, nor had we ever seen anything like it but many reports have been made at the police station of strange lights and objects".
Police Constable William Bryne -Banbury, Oxfordshire.
Object also witnessed by Police Constable Perry Jackson.





"It was a giant plate of light. It lit up the whole horizon with a glare. It was flying low over the landscape and appeared to be spinning"
Police Constable Eric Pinnock - Warminster, Wiltshire,30/11/65




There was light coming out from little windows and light changed colors several times, from soft blue to red to green and other colors. It didn't spin or anything. It just hovered around there -then the thing just picked up and took off, north west, toward Satartia."
Madison County Sheriff's Deputy Kenneth Creel - Flora, Mississippi, United States,February 10, 1977




"We made several attempts to follow it, or I should say get closer to it, but the object seemed aware of us and we were more successful remaining motionless and allow it to approach us, which it did on several occasions.Each time the object neared us, we experienced radio interference.
The object was shaped like a football, the edges, or I should say outside of the object were clear to us...the glow was emitted by the object, was not a reflection of other lights".
California Highway Patrol Officer Charles A. Carson - California, United States, August 13, 1960.
Object also witnessed by Police Officer Stanley Scott
Object also witnessed by Highway Patrolman Louis Younger





"The bulk of the object was plainly visible at this time and appeared to be triangular shaped with a bright purple light on the left end and the smaller, less bright, blue light on the right end. The bulk of the object appeared to be dark gray in color with no other distinguishing features. It appeared to be about 200 feet wide and 40-50 feet thick in the middle, tapering off toward both ends. There was no noise or any trail. The bright purple light illuminated the ground directly underneath it and the area in front of it, including the highway and the interior of our patrol car.
After arriving at approximately its original position,it went straight up in the air and disappeared at 25-30 degrees above the horizon."
Deputy Sheriff Bob Goode Damon, Texas, United States September 3, 1965
Object also witnessed by Chief Deputy Billy McCoy





He just stood there with his mouth open for a minute, as bright as it was, and he looked down. And I started looking down and I looked at my hands and my clothes weren't burning or anything, when it stopped right over on top of us.The only thing, the only sound in the whole area was a hum...like a transformer being loaded or an overloaded transformer when it changes....
.... it went PSSSSSHHEW, straight up; and I mean when it went up, friend, it didn't play no games; it went straight up."
Deputy Sheriff Dale Spaur, Portage County Incident, Ohio, April 17, 1966
Also witnessed by Deputy Wilbur Neff.





"This object came at us from the west. At first it looked like a red hot piece of coal about the size of a quarter held at arm's length. In a matter of seconds it was as large as a ruler held at arm's length. That is when it came to a complete stop.
"The shape of the object was distinct. The body of the object was solid bright red and it gave off a pulsating red glow completely around the object. The object hovered a few seconds, then made a left turn and again hovered for a few seconds, then went straight up like a shot. We watched it until it completely faded beyond the stars."
Patrolman LeRoy A. Arboreen - Dunellen, New Jersey, United States December 20, 1958
Object also witnessed by Patrolman B. Talada

To be considered is this list of people, their jobs and their statements regarding the presence of ET and so on.
I understand the weight that is brought by these people to this issue. I was glad to see the National Press Club event, a few years ago, with ex-governor from Arizona and all the rest; it reassured me that the persistent stigma was lifting, and by a lot.
However, I do not like these types, the military men, the government men, the religion men, the men who head human institutions. Generally, I reject their words. In my opinion, the man who successfully climbs institutional ladders is the man not to be believed. I believe that most people have the opposite view, that these are our finest, our smartest, etc.
My brother, my friend and I had a close encounter with three craft, all of which silently travelled no more than one hundred feet directly over our heads, slowly enough that we could really see what these were and were not. We were suddenly members of a small club: we knew absolutely that these others are here.
One major implication for me, was that I could now weigh my experience against what human institutions offer by way of official positions. Now I can see how big a part disinformation is to the business of these institutions. Certainly, they know what I know, follow?
As much as I would welcome some official delivery of the truth, I prefer the words of the every-day, the regular, the non-uniformed people. Yes, they are not trained observers, but I generally don't like the whole package one gets with someone who is a trained observer: he is at the service of the institution he works for.

There's the other possibility. There are no ETs visiting. After all, if any ET capable of interstellar travel wanted to disclose themselves, nobody could stop them.

Secret aircraft requires one conspiracy for secrecy for the usual, obvious reasons.

ET requires two secret conspiracies for no clearly convincing reasons.


Or there is another possibility.

They are not ET but ....


Our future descendants or

Our ancestors from a lost civilization



Or something we have yet to understand entirely. I can only say that the phenomenon is real and it is part of our reality. Whether you choose to accept it or not.


If we can understand how consciousness operates , then I think we might have a clue to finding out . The problem is asking the right questions. Like does consciousness exist? it does obviously. Can it exist independently of matter, because that's all our physical body is. If it can exist independently of matter ,then it probably already does exists independently of matter. Then what form would it take . If observed? Probably the most efficient form being an orb, in fact light. Do orbs show signs of consciousness, apparently they do. If you were dreaming of flying through the air, what shape would you take? probably the shape of the only thing you knew of that could travel at high speeds, unaffected by inertia. Then it might make sense if we are seeing dreamers. If you interacted with other humans, the shape would be humanoid . Or dreaming of Bigfoot etc. Taking that shape, The vehicle is thought, in a reality formed by consciousness. Can consciousness take a material form? Yes its a human body at the moment. Get the drift?
