My last ufo sighting had 6 - 7 lights on the rear. The lights were the only visible parts.
Just because they're not from earth doesn't mean they won't have lights.
Please don't take this as an attack, more of an observation which can apply to a great many of believers who get a bit ahead of themselves in their
quest for the truth.
A more sensible/useful way to put your statement would be "Having lights doesn't automatically mean they're from Earth." Now that doesn't mean they
can't be from somewhere near Earth, another solar system planet or moon, another star, galaxy, universe, or plane of existence. We simply don't know,
given the information.
You can be a believer without making assumptive leaps. The reason there are so many skeptical believers are because they've seen and/or researched
enough to know what they know and what they don't. It's the only way to ever make progress. To paraphrase a mediocre, yet intelligent man, it's about
the known knowns, known unknowns and unknown unknowns. There's no such thing as an unknown known (that would be assuming you know something which you
If you witness a UFO with lights, there's no good reason to assume aliens, and no reason whatsoever to confirm or negate any assumption of its origin,
whether earthly or otherwise, based on the presence of lights on the unidentified craft.
What is known is 1) an unfamiliar aerial craft 2) with lights. What is unknown is 1) who or what is the creator/pilot of the craft and 2) where are
they from. (And more, of course.)
Speculating is good, but useful only when you know where the line is between known and unknown, so that you can try to cross/push that line. Once you
assume an answer, you've stopped any chance of progress.
