I'm afraid its worse than that. You really shouldn't believe yourself, either.
Most of us live in a world view that is contaminated with a multitude of assumptions. Most of these are useful and hence the intrinsic nature of man
to form such assumptions. However, some of them can be quite harmful to us.
If you only knew how tired I am at this whole subject. There are too many people working in this field that're only doing it for profit, a way to get
Amen to that. This site, for example, has plenty of video and movie plugs, let alone book sales attempts. They are often ignored. But there are still
plenty of free 'videos on the net' with poor science and poorly reached conclusions. Its a shame. It provides the disinformation necessary to keep
the subject a confusing puddle of mud.
There is still another class of salesman here, even more common, interested in controlling your metaphysical perspective.
Why are we even discussing this matter now when it's pointless? It's obvious something IS going on. Who can argue with that except the fanatics that
make their living by denying everything?
Well, we are discussing it here because the press is useless and your personal contacts and experiences are the most important evidence. Not what
People I can trust and in the right positions told me that the press is so off the mark that they are a waste of time. Most of what you read about the
world or see on the news isn't telling you what is really going on. Scary eh? The person also insinuated that they can control the press as
necessary. You can take that to the bank.
It was also insinuated that great and big things were going on. Now as for what 'big' is.... well, that could be many things.
We won't get the truth out of them (assuming something IS going on).
They have kept it for 60 years and the only thing they need to do is to deny everything and as long as no one can prove that their denials are all
rubbish no "true" information will be revealed to the public. Ever.
I believe that that is correct.
It feels like this whole subject will keep going for years and years with the same talk, the same proof and denials.
The only ones that can prevent it from continuing until this world is gone are the extraterrestrials (if they exist). And it could take hundreds of
years before the public will hear anything from them.
The subject will continue so long as religeon is part of the human condition. I vote for forever.
THe question for me is not how long religous conversation will continue. The question is how long the government will continue to deny interest in
phenoemena and secretly study it.
You assume that 'hearing from them' is something they 'think' about. You are operating within an anthropomorphic construct. It seems more likely
to me that an alien intelligence would step broadly and awkwardly across our moral concepts, and that we would be largely repugnated by what resembles
their 'decision making process' if such a thing is even comparable.
All I know is that the US tried to shoot those radar blips down for a while, and that people in compartmental programs who believe in UFOs are afraid
of the UFOs. That 'greys' are looked upon with disdain, either as a poor characture or an incomplete understanding of an inhumane nature, hat the
earth experiences periodic mass extinctions roughly every 600 million years.
Now leaving conversational evidence and moving into the even more speculative: a lack of causality in the form of non-objective manifestations, can
cause horror and terror in humanity.
What are your hopes really?
That the vast majority of people start to think deeply about issues starting at age 4, and that they don't stop until they are 95 years old.
