What about the ancient drawings of the Mayans, Egytions and other ancient artifacts. Did they just imagine the flying disk and space men? If so, wouldn't that be the ultimate hoax? They didn't have the ability to take pictures or video tape their experiences. Evidence does go back along way but the only question is why would they lie and draw pictures and writings about ufo's? I sometimes wonder if all the planets that we know of look like they do in pictures. Maybe they look completely different and have been airbrushed redone or something like that. How do we know? Has anyone seen the planets in real life with their own eyes?

negative, that could be part of some ancient story passed down from generation to generation, like atlantis and things like that. people back then did have good imaginations =)

How about extraordinary claims require an extraordinary investigation?
As for the physical hard evidence I'm sure it exsists, but not in the public domain of course. There is a vast amount of evidence to suggest a coverup has been in place though, I think that should be obvious.
Are you dismissing mass witness sightings? this is not considered hard evidence, but if a thousand witnesses testify in court is that not enough to find a guilty verdict?
What about witnesses with high credentials backed up with radar data? can we dismiss this so easily?
Although most crop circles are probably man made, there are scientists looking into it with some astounding results. Is there physical evidence of non human intellegence being left in the fields every year?

I think this could be the kind of physical evidence you're referring to. His story is somewhat unreal, I often wonder if those responsible for abductions include sexual elements to limit the credibility of those reporting the incidents. Kinda like Kang and Kodos spraying Homer with rum before sending him back to Earth. Anyway, without further ado (if that even qualifies as ado)

Scientists assess DNA Hair sample from Human being apparently not from Earth

Bob White's UFO Object is another interesting case.

Personally, I'd say these are the two strongest pieces of physical evidence relating to the UFO/Alien phenomena.

What do you mean extraordinary claims? How are U.F.O.'s extraordinary claims? If you said this 4,000 years ago, then you may have a point. Right now we have mountains of direct and circumstantial evidence that supports ufology. From cave paintings, paintings, ancient manuscripts, pictures and videos to eyewitness accounts from Presidents, military, police officer, high ranking government officials, pilots and more. At this point ufology can be proven beyond any reasonable doubt.[snip]

I agree full heartedly with your entire post. It's getting harder and harder for scientist to stand in the realm of science and Still claim Ufology is not to be taken seriously. In the last few days I've read a number of articles, essays about probability and the probability of alien life visiting us and the conclusion I've come to so far is that this whole ridicule movement going on, apparently based on 'the probability of alien visitation' is completely and utterly wrong.

I'm still in the middle of learning a bunch of things about the "ETH" and such, but I'll definitely get back to this forum about my research.

thanks for your opinion,but thats all it is. i find it lacking any hard evidence. the thread is not open for debate. if you have something worthwhile to look at, lets see it. if not dont respond. good day!

I contend this person does not exist, But is an MIB, there is no hard evidence that proves otherwise. It is possible the MIB is trolling for any proof so it can be hidden
