Even if somebody had video of a very real physical experience,and put the video here, how would you know? some would say trick photography photoshop/videodigital manipulation of the highest order, impressive hoax etc.
no evidence bar physical tangible artifacts or living moving beings would satisfy anyone, ever, and theres no way to show such a thing tobe real an of extra terrestrial origin if you had it to begin with.
If you went forward with such a claim and evidence, it would be appropriated by the scientific community and then by goverment (no conspiracy needed, national treasure etc) anyway, and no documents showing findings could be proven authentic anyway.
This is a place for folk to fantasize...
Enjoy the kooky storys of Reptilian rape and citys in the sky etc and be satisfied.
barring such anunlikely event should ever happen to you, you are left with kooky storys/faith/beleif alone.
Escapism is great!

I think it's a very good idea, but (don't you hate that word!!) but I don't think it would work out as planned. There will be people who think that anything to do with aliens is trash and completely unbelievable. If those people happen to outnumber those who think a certain thread is believable, then the topic of the thread is doomed to be called a hoax even if it is not. It is a good idea though. If there were some way to guard against that, I think it would work.

I would kinda believe it would be better to separate it more like, general alien discussion, abductions/encounters, UFO observations, the alien/government connection and probably a section just called "debunked" or something like that.
I´m curious...a question for you "old timers" on this board, what was it like here two years ago?

I don't think it's a good idea, because almost everyone thought that my thread about my fathers experience was bull#, but it wasn't.
We don't want real stories to be categorized as bull# just because people have a hard time believing in it.
