I Really want to believe

Yes, I want to believe. When I was a little girl, my Mom gave me a wonderful book by Charles Berlitz about the Bermuda Triangle. I was about 10 years old, with a very open mind. I was captivated by the book, and read everything I could get my hands on regarding the Bermuda Triangle, UFO's, Bigfoot, and aliens.

I loved the TV series Project Bluebook. I was really into science fiction too. I always daydreamed about meeting benevolent aliens and chatting them up. Like Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Star Trek.

Now I'm older and much more cynical. I joined this site and am delighted to read all the wonderful subjects on here. There is something nagging at me. I never saw a UFO. I wonder if I did see one and saw actual aliens from another planet/dimension/timeline if I'd be absolutely terrified. I want so sit down and have a cup of coffee/beer and shoot the breeze, ask what brought them here.

Maybe they would say their planet was destroyed by war and warn us. Maybe they'd just giggle and get drunk. Maybe they would be angry and resentful. Perhaps all of the above.

But after 50 years on this earth, I've seen some wondrous things, but never a UFO. I don't believe in them, but I want to. This site has rekindled my imagination and daydreaming of what could with the ultimate in social networking - chatting with some aliens from far far away and hearing what they have to say.

Do any of you feel this way? I can't be the only one.

I think I know just the thing for you. Read Mutants & Mystics by Jeffrey Kripal.

I can take you to a valley in Southern Colorado that will change the way you view reality, UFOs, mindcontrol, the paranormal, and religion forever. You will be fundamentally changed....I was.

Interested? I have made this offer on ATS many times to skeptics and debunkers; not one response! Comfortable in their narrowminded one dimensional, cynical view of the worlid I guess...also a bit chicken****

Can't really blame them...the trip down the rabbithole isn't for the faint of heart.

I'll check that out. Thanks.

For what it's worth, I can tell you they are real.
I've been close enough to one to hit it with a rock.

Sounds intriguing. Looks like I can buy the book through Barnes and Noble or ITunes. Thanks.

That's cool....not quite the same as stumbling upon a mutilated cow. Or being chased by green fireballs...
Or encountering stranger Mexicans that know way to many intimate details of your life.

Oh, being chased by green fireballs would be really scary. Unless they suddenly want to drink some Jack Daniels and shoot the breeze.

Kinda hard to shoot the breeze at 90 mph in a ford pickup. Don't drink and drive!!
I took a good friend up to Saguache fishing once...hasn't spoken to me in 6 years. He wouldn't tell me what happened.
People like to think they would like to see a UFO; like its space aliens just cruzeing around...it's much more complex than that...much more!!

I'm the same and came here because it seemed to be the best place to find answers to the questions that have been nagging at me since a very young age.I'm an avid sky watcher and despite countless hours looking up,I've yet to see anything I can't explain.

Well, once you decide they're "real," then you have to try and figure out what you mean by that. Because of their elusive and often nonsensical nature, at some point UFOs make you question the nature of observed reality.

Of course, you could always just chalk them up to "aliens from other planets in metal ships," but the more you study them, the more you will find that doesn't really fit the descriptions all that well. Especially the high strangeness stuff.

I believe they are real. Get yourself some binoculars and start looking at the night sky, even the day. You'll know what's "right" and "not right" when you see something peculiar. I have a pic of the local paper's front page that mentions the "bright light" that I watched way back in 1981. If I knew how to download it I would. Anyways, keep looking and you'll see.

I didn't really have a sense of fear.
My pulse was definitely racing...more of sense of awe.
I was disappointed when it left. I would have liked to take a ride.

Oh really? That's because I've been unaware of the offer.
Be damned if I'm not up for an adventure. Can you tell me
more? Would skinwalker ranch be similar to this valley?

By any chance have you created a thread on your experiences? If not can you give me more details about the green fireballs and what they might be?

I believe that! That's why I said earlier I'd be terrified. I would probably faint or crap my drawers. In my daydream, they know they are advanced, but they are cool about and decide to humor me.

Yeah, I hear you on that. I think it would be much more complicated.

Thanks for the link. I find exoplanets very intriguing.
