Thanks for the interesting topic.

I think "believe" is the key word as it concerns this subject. In my opinion it is at the very heart of the everlasting discussion on UFOs. In my
case after all the documentaries, articles, theories, videos, essays, disclosures I am left with more doubts and questions than answers and it seems
clear to me that it would be impossible to present a theory or a conclusion that didn't start with, "I believe..."
Belief is in my opinion a short-cut to an illusion of truth - not knowledge itself. Granted that those who want to believe will probably die happier
than those who want to know
(which by itself may be more important than actual knowledge) but for me the most important fact is that we don't
what UFOs are.
There are simply so many researchers and investigations under different disciplines approaching all we do not know about the universe and ourselves
nowadays that I always find it hard to come to a given conclusion. The four options you have provided are but a few in all the theoretical work that
has been done.
For me the videos of Unidentified Flying Objects that come to us simply to not offer the solid conclusion - "Aliens". It is just another hypothesis
in a list of probabilities so long at our time that reaching a conclusion is simply impossible with the information that is given to us.
Out of body experiences, new magnetic technologies (not long ago I read an article that presented the work of one of HAARP's early physicists as
being responsible for crop-circles), new aircraft technologies, spiritual energies at work (where you have a huge set of sub-directories right there
from angels to demons, strange creatures to ghosts, higher entities to an universal conscience), alien exploration, the workings of a climate that is
changing, workings of a planet/solar system that is changing and that's even before getting to the optical illusions/hoaxes index. And the list does
not stop here. What is common is the fact that every theory
is presented through belief
. Every time something happens all theories will
try to pull said event into fitting their own theory.
Another huge problem that is in my opinion caused by this belief
is the very fact that most research is unclear and speculative. How many times
have we seen conferences by ufologists
presenting proof that we already know has been uncovered? Example: the famous WTC UFO that just so
happens to be a commercial for the Sci-Fi channel - how any ufology sites, conferences and documentaries still propose it as proof? In every area of
knowledge where truth is still largely unknown to us (and surprisingly in areas where we always assumed to know it all) research is an open sea of
possibilities. In areas with a poor reputation such as ufology - many times so. In my opinion there is no conclusive research or solid proof that
might even begin to allow a conclusion - just speculative theory with heavy ammounts of belief and faith in the mix.
Originally posted by bruiseHas anyone seen a UFO in real life and have no doubt whatsoever that it was from another world?
Me? No. I've seen unidentified flying objects that I could not identify yet never saw one I could explain or define. But permit me to ask - Is that
lack of doubt even possible? Is our knowledge of our world and ourselves so deep and complete right now that we can justified to say "Without a doubt
To finish (and I'm sorry for the length of the post) - maybe in some of those many videos and photos I've seen til now I was lookins at aliens or
their crafts. Maybe yesterday getting groceries I passed by the woman of my dreams.
I don't know. There's no way I could.
