Being a general skeptic rather than a "cynic", I do believe that the sheer amount of so-called sightings, that many of them are legitimate. There are way too many for it to be fradulent, hoax or a mass delusion. There is an unfair stigma to those who have claimed to see a U.F.O, or to claim that it is an E.T.V (Extra Terrestrial Vehicle). Given the lack of technology that exists to be able to create objects that move that quickly without propulsion technology is definitely not a human creation.
Now, onto the next level of discussion. For those of you who believe that we are visited by Extra Terrestrial Vehicles, my main questions would be:
1.) What are the reasons they would visit? How many different species are visiting?
2.) Are there any credible government documents that would show it?
I know that hte Disclosure Project has brought some things to light, but I have not been entirely convinced of it as yet.
1) How is one supposed to refuse contact when you consider the circumstances of most claimed encounters?
2) When did the 'abductions' stop?
I would agree, except that I never said I only accept what I have witnessed. There is substantial evidence that koala bears exist and I've never seen one. There is substantial evidence that there are honest politicians, but I have never seen one. What I have said is that there is precious little sound evidence for visits by aliens. I susbscribe to the old maxim that extraordinary claims require extraordinary proofs.
But it's ludicrous of you to insist that nothing exists that you do not witness, nothing happens that does not happen to you, and that there is nothing to know that you do not know already.
Why is it that "enlightened people" always seem to want to censor, constrain and control any positions or thoughts that don't conform to their own narrow view of the world? What is it, do aliens have an online course in "Censorship Techniques for the Abductee"?
Now if you still want to post here, let's stick to the topic of the thread.
