If you were from a million year old race that has mastered space travel, then would you be interested in interfering with the affairs of a primitive
planet? No, you have much more important things to do then waste time on a primitive planet that is millions of light years away from your
Is this some sort of joke?
How would you know what an alien would do? On what basis do you feel that an alien would want to be on their "homeworld?" Seems like you are
making that call based on your own personal emotions.
Actually the way I see it is I ask myself the following question: What seperates us from other animals?
The answer is our ability to think and reason. In short, our intelligence. If you extrapolate out a million years (basically an impossible task),
you can surmise that what seperates us from these aliens is (a million years) of intellectual advancement.
Ok so what does that mean? Let's take a closer look at our home when trying to answer this question. The USA is widely considered one of the more
advanced human societies. What is the USA trying to do as of this time?
Answer: Prevent Iran, a lesser evolved society, from gaining nuclear weapons.
Now ask why is the USA doing this to Iran? Do we have some fundamental hatred for Iranians? I don't think so. I believe we are doing this because
we do not trust them and are trying to nudge them in a direction which is better not only for Iranians but for the whole world.
Now let's review the Malmstrom AFB UFO Missile Incident.
For those who don't know, this
is a very well documented case of America's nuclear ICBM's getting shut down by an unknown Electromagnetic Pulse. It just so happens that UFOs
hovered over/near the base around the time of the Incident. Coincidence? Maybe.
Without further evidence my first guess would be that the aliens are nudging us in a better direction. Similar to what we are trying to do with Iran
and many other nations around the world.
Now you must understand that this has NOTHING TO DO WITH MORALS. This is pure logic. The more advanced our species becomes the more interaction
there will be. Geographical distances are becoming smaller and smaller due to modern technologies (planes, telephones, internet etc).
Unless mankind wants to live in an ongoing cycle of different ideas/ideologies/agendas with the constant threat of commies, terrorists, nazis
forever... at some point we are all going to have get on the same page.
Look at what's happened while trying to get Iraq on the same page as us. Their way of life has really been affected, while those of us here in the
USA have noticed little to no change in our daily lives. Thus you see that growing pains are not felt as much by the dominant culture.
Now let's go back to UFOs/Aliens. Remember the sighting of the UFO over O'Hare in Chicago? An object hovered for several minutes before shooting
up through the clouds. Surely the aliens know that they made themselves visible to us. So why such bizarre behavior?
I would guess they are preparing us for the future. Slowly making us aware that there is more to the Universe than the Earth and ourselves. They are
telling us to not play with nukes (the ICBM incident I mentioned), similarly to how an adult takes a dangerous toy away from a small child.
Like the USA and IRAN, the aliens know that we will only continue to evolve (history backs this) and improve (history backs this) until our species
will contact theirs if either party likes it or not.
Next... your statement about no scientists backing UFOlogists is just plain wrong and shows a lack of research. First, try to keep in mind that
scientists are just people. They go where the money is. If there is no money in UFO research they will study the solar astronomy, aerospace,
physics, biology, etc.
Besides that glaringly obvious fact if you would have picked up one book on the subject matter of UFOs you'd quickly discover a person known as
J. Allen Hynek.
In 1931, Hynek received a B.S. from the University of Chicago. In 1935, he completed his Ph.D. in astrophysics at Yerkes Observatory. He joined
the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Ohio State University in 1936. He specialized in the study of stellar evolution and in the identification
of spectroscopic binaries.
Hmm... maybe it's just me but he sounds like a science guy!
Next candidate... my own favorite... Paul R. Hill.
Read about his career, research, assignments,
positions held. If his career doesn't qualify him as a "scientist" then I'm not sure what does!
Hill concluded that UFO propulsion was based on a currently unknown antigravity force. Using his aerodynamic expertise, Hill further demonstrated
mathematically how this would also explain how UFOs fly at supersonic speed without creating a sonic boom, another frequent skeptical objection to UFO
reality. The same antigravity field forward of the craft would push aside the air and prevent it from piling up on the leading surfaces of the craft.
The shock wave causing the sonic boom would never form. Furthermore, the system would streamline the airflow and reduce turbulence, thus reducing
aerodynamic drag, greatly improving flight efficiency.
Applying the antigravity field to the occupants of the craft would protect them against the effects of high acceleration, since they could be
accelerated at the same rate as the craft itself.
And if Hynek and Hill don't do it for you then you see on Hill's Wiki page at the bottom..
Other scientific analysts of UFO performance have come to similar conclusions. One example was rocketry pioneer Hermann Oberth, who likewise
thought UFOs had mastered antigravity, and also used this to fly supersonically without generating a shock wave. Oberth, like Hill, supported the
Extraterrestrial hypothesis for UFO origins.
Wildcat, forget about every other book on UFOs
except this one!
