...Says everyone who’s posted a pic or video of a dot moving in the sky or something they themselves couldn’t explain. The world of UFOs and EBE is a very interesting and fun world to explore, but riddled with misinformation and everyone seems to KNOW the TRUTH yet nobody’s “truth”is the same as the next guy.

Why do we entertain such wildly unproved ideas and more importantly why do folks believe so deeply in aliens without physical evidence they can see for themselves? It seems to have a manor of religious or spiritual aspect to it where these issues are approached and discussed as matters of faith, rather than discussing what is or isn’t. There is a lust for “disclosure”, this idea that daddy government knows all there is about the topic and is slowly giving us drops of truth so we are ready to handle the epic weight of the phenomenon. All these things seem to be feedback loops of lore discussed endlessly where we’ve cemented what is and isn’t without proof to ourselves. I want to believe, I want to see something yet all we have and discuss is people’s beliefs and attempt to explain radar or indiscernible footage of a few pixels moving.

So if we are unable to provide ANY evidence that proves what this phenomena is, can we move forward and instead discuss why our psych seems to need and long for this to be a specific outcome? It’s fascinating how we all seem to “know” something without ever seeing it.

because..once reasoned...within the constraints of our own psyche...it seems more logical than not that this "specific outcome" is unavoidable.

You're saying everyone thinks the same thing, most people see a UFO don't think aliens, they think I wonder what that is. I don't think aliens are darting about our skyline, they likely exist all over the cosmos but what's the chances of them hanging about our back yard, to play with our heads... I doubt it.

First lets examine the word psyche

psy·che1
/ˈsīkē/
noun
the human soul, mind, or spirit.
"their childhood made them want to understand the human psyche and to help others"

The word Psy in Greek means Soul. So psychology is really the study of
the soul. Big clue fr ya!

The same reasons that people believe in God. There is no physical evidence he exists.

For most skeptics there is no "evidence" that qualifies as real evidence.

I thought the same but everybody on a forum has the right to ask legitimate questions, as much as they have the right to ignore the question.

I like to believe that the Universe is festooned with alien life because the opposite is a frightening prospect, although not one which would really impact on my life and also not one that could be proven, either. True, that the phenomenon really does enjoy evading capture by our technical trinkets, our fumbling ability to produce solid evidence and always seems to be on the periphery of perception.

I like to think that mystery, whether it be alien visitation, ancient technology or metaphysical and mystical experiences, gives us humans something to stimulate interest and conversation and the prospect of not being entirely alone in existence takes away the weight of depression.

How boring would a straight-forward, no-nonsense existence be, anyway? I guess the need for mystery and the unknown is and always will be part of the human psyche.

I've seen a few UFOs now and at least one of my sightings was unexplainable by our knowledge of the physical universe.

I also believe there is life besides our own planet in the universe, but an unexplained moving dot in the sky becomes alien beings? Inter dimensional? Etc, how these conclusions are reached and then repeated as fact by many is I think a comment on ourselves, not the moving dot. a reply to: fromtheskydown

Quite true and if it wasn't for that, none of us would be posting here right now.

That's fine but people are not going by their experience on the matter, but their own subjective belief systems or/and the crowd, that is fallacy. And it's why they are called sheep. I don't believe or disbelieve because I simply do not know. I've read the secret doctrine and much of the claims by HPB are historically factual in the sense that other cultures have stated them.
