Alien Motives: The Revised Poll

OK: So here's the biggie-- Why do you guys think ET's are visiting this planet? Now, there are many, many alternatives to the ET hypothesis for UFO activity... But I'm interested in what believers in ETs think. If you believe otherwise, please say so below this post.

Now, various races of aliens have been observed by witnesses, so, I guess, this poll pertains only to the various branches of the race that is either called the 'greys', 'grays', or 'zeta reticulans'... As there have been many types of aliens sited over 50+ years, I'm asking for what you think either the majority race (the greys) or what most species, otherwise, are up to.

Now, some of my categories will overlap, so, please select the category that comes closest to what you believe. For instance, "They're Explorers" and "they're Explorers conducting a long-term survey" are selections that overlap, so pick the one that you feel is the most 'inclusive' of all that is going on...

Because I can't fit everything onto a single line, let me brake everything down below:

Option 1 "Explorers"--- The aliens are akin to Neil Armstrong, Yuri Gargarin, or Captain James T Kirk. They are explorers at the helms of ships sent out to understand the nature of the Universe.

Option 2 "Surveyors"-- They are still explorers, but ones who come after some initial 'mapping' has occured. They seek to know where the 'hidden rocks' are in the Solar System and human society.

Option 3 "Scientists"-- They have easy access to our world and are studying us as Jane Goodall does Chimpanzees. They make measurements, taggings, or direct contact from time to time, but do not intend to 'alter' our society. That is, they are scientifically detached from our evolution.

Option 4 "Breeders"-- The aliens are here to alter the biological history of the human race... in the same way that a farmer 'creates' his livestock.

Option 5 "Doctors" -- The alien race is suffering some sort of genetic disease that can only be cured through sampling human genetics.

Option 6 "Missionaries"-- the aliens are here to 'enlighten' us and help us join the galactic community.

Option 7 "Scouts"--- they're here in advance of either agents who intend to seize our government, or they're mapping out our defences in praparation for an invasion.

Option 8 -- "Dark Side" -- this is a combo of options 3,4,5, and 7 combined.. that is, it fits in with Dulce-esque tales of aliens abducting humans, with the help of the Gov, inorder to exploit them

Option 9 -- "Good side" -- This option is a combo of 1, 2, and perhaps 6 and 5. The aliens are not totally non-interventionist, but they also aren't 'bad', in that they are here either due to necessity or because the galactic community needs them to be here.

Option 10 -- "players" -- the aliens are doing a combo of 5, 6, and 7 activity, inorder to play us for our resources

You're onto it now OIMD.

There should be 5 little grey men at the top of Today's Posts when this gets up.

I voted 'players' without hesitation..and by the way, this is a very interesting poll, hope to see how it turns out..

To everyone who voted in the other 'Alien Motives' polls... Consider this the official one. Please re-vote in it if you did so, before, in the other ones.

there were some weird tech problems (ah, hem) with the other polls, so this should be considered the official one.... Thanks to all who contributed with ideas on how I could fix poll #1 (and 2, as it were).


PS: I used both the '-' and '"' symbols in previous polls that worked, so my paranoid side is still hammering away at this...

Just have to check now whether I can say 'president' and not President when describing the worst breed of reptilian.

To reply to questions which have been poll-related (and not tech related) from the other ill-fated polls, we are limited to TEN (10) polling options when writing polls.. so, I've tried to include every major idea as to alien motives, divided according to motive, into this thread. Surely, not everything is here... But I hope that you guys can use the logic that comes with association, disassociation, and elimination to figure out whicj pick comes closest to your views...

C'mon, you know what I mean...

I am bumping this up from the backburner as we seem to have a million 'new' users this week in the UFO board (and, in regards to William's 'read this' thread, I do not mean 'new' in a snotty sense).

The scientist option would explain why they don't seem to have done much more than look. It would also explain why they're always sticking things up people's butts.

i think they are just watching us, waiting for the right time to accept us into their galactic community.

i think there should be an "other" option in every poll.

Actually, a lot of people have little faith in polls with 'other' options because that option, by definition, steps outside the concept of polling. Obviously, out of 100 people, you will have 100 different perspectives... the point of a poll is to see what basic concepts people are ascribing to. Even if their personal or favorite concept isn't represented... People are expected to perceive which option comes closest to the worldview that dictates their opinions. Also, polls take into account the perhaps innacurate assumption that people will be able to eliminate contrary positions in their own mind... For instance, a poll assumes that a person can figure-out that the idea that aliens are here to destroy us and help us are contradictory.... So, in the larger sense, I wrote two+ poll 'themes' that are contradictory, assuming that everyone is capable of Aristotleian logic. In that frame of mind, you should be able to take your logic apart down to a specific option here. Again, the 'other' option instantly undermines a poll and makes it invalid... as it asks for individual expression instead of action/result oriented opinion.
