You certainly aren't.
Considering that your government is supposed to be your tool to ensure that corruption does not take place, and that the public benefits to the
maximum extent, that they are withholding information from the people they are gathering information for - full disclosure is not too much at all.
The very fact that it is something not had is insane. It's ludicrous.
Things will have to change.
After reading that article, all I can say is that it's about damn time.
Looking at the numerous sources of ancient-historical evidence, the frequent evidences supported these days, the logic and the math of it, the
coincidences add up too often to just say "Not happening."
You should only read the following if you actually want to believe this, I won't bother to post back in a big argument or anything, and admit that
there are numerous holes in what I'm saying. I'm no expert on the topic, just an interested layman, and I've left logical fallacies about, in
addition to those already present. What I say is simply what I've heard, read, and seen, and I feel like it points in a certain direction regardless
of any holes in logic. Read on if you are interested...
1) That crazy Biblical book, Ezekiel or someodd. It's a book that was originally in the bible, but was later dropped, due to some suspicion as to
whether it was entirely true. Throughout it, Ezekiel's encounter with God and his angels is depicted, but upon inspection with today's technological
knowledge, God's craft starts to seem like a mix between a Saucer-UFO and a Helicopter. It screams at him with a metallic voice, and shoots
occasional spurts of fire. It speaks to him, teaches him things, he is held under an incredibly bright light as numerous angels of a strange and
nonhuman, but familiar, sort come and speak to him, and as they then leave, and the encounter ends as quickly as it began.
2) The old Indian tales. This isn't Native Americans, I mean real Indians. I'm not sure on this one - as opposed to seeing a documentary or a number
of sources, I've just heard this one orally a number of times, as well as seen it on a site or two. There are supposedly tales of gigantic fights
that took place in the sky, long, long ago. Of tremendous explosions and invisible craft, of sonic booms and wars fought by giants. These things were
not named directly of course, and there is room for interpretation, but there are flying things that shot other flying things that collided with
invisible flying things and sent fire blooming with a great loud noise - roughly. It was quite convincing, but I'd be hard pressed to find it
3) Sumer. The Sumerians are _the_ original civilisation. We accredit them with government, writing, mathematics, law, almost everything we rely on.
Hammurabi's Code - that's law. Right there, that's the first solid law we'd ever known of. Know who the Sumerians say where their providers? Who
they learned from, and where this came from? Giant Priests. Of the Sky.
Yes, according to the people who created civilisation, they were given the gift of civilisation by Giant Priests that descended from Temples in the
Damn, that's convincing.
4) The Pyramids, Stone Henge, Mexican Pyramids, Mayan Ruins, American Stone Henge, and various other astronomically based megalithic structures of the
ancient world all correlate towards similar groups of stars. They aim at things that were quite directly related to each other - and many of these are
still unkown in their methods of construction.
5) Across the world are cave paintings, old open caves, ruined mounds, etc... Local towns and communities often have their own folk legends on the
creation of these places, and the two most common consensuses are Giants, and Aliens.
6) Many biblical stories claim giants to have lived. 196,000 Giants were apparently lost in Noah's Flood. Whatever the hell that means.
7) Many aforementioned megalithic structures make amazing pictures seen from the sky, but we only really found this out in the last 100 years. Before
then, they were just oddities. With generally no overlooking hills, and miles-long spans, these structures have to have taken SOME sort of view from
overhead to properly co-ordinate, or the Native Americans had many, many artistic geniuses with massive amounts of time and creative power at their
8) Heaven and Hell. A long time ago, a Star Trek episode struck me. I'd briefly thought of the problem found in it, but it set me thinking again. In
the episode, Captain Picard accidentally made contact with a very primitive civilisation, and they took him to be a god. He ended up giving them a
rough guide line on how to live their lives, and would really have started religion off with a bang for them.
Well, what if it happened to us?
Some logical being (or race) stumbles upon the earth, demonstrates their great powers, we put our faith in them, and their forced to say something to
us that will shape our minds for millenia.
"Good - being good to each other, by not killing each other, not stealing from each other, not hating each other, etc... Will allow you to advance to
where we are, you will become like us, in the skies.
Bad - being bad to each other, killing, stealing, hating, etc... Will force you to continue these primitive rituals of burial, and force you to be
grounded here, on the earth, down.
Good, Up, Sky. Bad, Down, Here."
A loose analog to 'Telephone' over 1000's of years brings us:
Thou Shalt Not Kill
Thou Shalt Not Steal
If you follow those and be good, you'll go to heaven and be with god, if you forget them and be bad, you'll go to Hell.
This one, for the sheer simplicity and sense that it makes, is my favourite.
To conclude, for the reasons listed above (and others that I'm quite sure I haven't managed to remember) the idea of extra terrestrial visitation
from long, long ago straight up to now seems quite likely to me, and is almost a surety. It's just a question of when they'll officially reveal
themselves or we'll find rock-solid evidence of it for everyone on earth to see. Considering our present mindset, our exponentially advancing
technology, and our incredibly backwards social structure and ecological state, I think they'll have to step in soon if they want us to succeed.
Looking at it from this point of view, the idea of the Apocalypse and the Rapture.. it's when they come to pick up everyone who did well, and leave
the rest of us poor bastards here to rot.
That's my .. 78 or so cents, by now. Sorry to keep you listening beyond my due.
