Sorry didnt mean to come off as rude.

N = R* × fp × ne × fl × fi × fc × L



N = The number of communicative civilizations
The number of civilizations in the Milky Way Galaxy whose radio emissions are detectable.

R* = The rate of formation of suitable stars
The rate of formation of stars with a large enough "habitable zone" and long enough lifetime to be suitable for the development of intelligent life.

fp = The fraction of those stars with planets
The fraction of sun-like stars with planets is currently unknown, but evidence indicates that planetary systems may be common for stars like the sun.

ne = The number of "Earths" per planetary system
All stars have a habitable zone where a planet would be able to maintain a temperature that would allow liquid water. A planet in the habitable zone could have the basic conditions for life as we know it.

fl = The fraction of those planets where life develops
Although a planet orbits in the habitable zone of a suitable star, other factors are necessary for life to arise. Thus, only a fraction of suitable planets will actually develop life.

fi = The fraction life sites where intelligence develops
Life on Earth began over 3.5 billion years ago. Intelligence took a long time to develop. On other life-bearing planets it may happen faster, it may take longer, or it may not develop at all. For more information, please visit Dr. William Calvin's "The Drake Equation's fi".

fc = The fraction of planets where technology develops
The fraction of planets with intelligent life that develop technological civilizations, i.e., technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space.

L = The "Lifetime" of communicating civilizations
The length of time such civilizations release detectable signals into space.

How do you suppose this top-down chain of command plays itself out without your "lower" workers finding out the true intent? Do you think the editor that decides "let's run this UFO story" is in on the secret, or do you think he's just trying to do his job by returning good numbers and having positive things to report to shareholders?

As for the Vatican telling us they are probably real, and that it is ok to believe in them. That is because they don't want to lose the mighty grip on most of humanity. Religion is an important element for stabilizing the masses. Imagine what Kaos and confusion this would do to a human being. People could literally lose their faith about such a happening. This is what the Vatican does not want. If they are nice aliens, the idea is to keep us in that religious bubble, and if possible convert the masses. Believe it or not, a religious belief is good for stabilizing and for business.

Why is the story always, "the governments of the world is hiding the truth from us"

Why is the story always,"the government must come clean about aliens"

Why is it always up to a government to confirm that aliens exist? Because a government is more credible than your everyday human being on the outside? Because aliens would obviously only make contact with a power above the masses? As if they are more able to handle a truth. Ludicrous, says I. A government doesn't have anymore credibility than us. If every government in the world announced tomorrow that after a combined effort of study they learned that if you cut off your penis it would achieve longer life by say 200 years. Would any one male even not in their right mind buy that ludicrous story? But it's the government, remember? If they say something is so, it is so without question. Except when their view doesn't match yours then it's a conspiracy to hide the truth.


Honestly I feel insulted with all the disclosure talk, for some time now. Like, I'm supposed to be blind and oblivious to what's going on around me and I need my parents the government to spoon feed me knowledge, and especially anyone here who comes up with their fun threads every few weeks and try to pass off that they're this super witness to "the truth" and are revealing everything they know only after they're asked questions by members, to "enlighten" us. I really don't care what the government knows or doesn't know, nor do I need them to tell me old news that I knew long before they ever opened their mouth. The only thing I care about is the reason WHY they enjoy the denial card and when will it be convenient for them to be thrown out of power and replaced by uncorrupted people who will get stuff done instead of abusing the power they are given for their own gain. Then repeat process every 100 years or so when it is required, because no matter how you go about it, power will always corrupt someone somewhere and then it spreads.

look around you it's NOT happening!!...lol

if your expecting the 'goverments' to give you the disclosure you are wishing for....your in for a huge let down imo.

they will never tell you the truth...i repeat....never.


if for some strange reason they do come up with a disclosure statement it will be to benefit them and will probably be used against you.

all you people looking for this disclosure need to wake up...it's not gonna happen.

the only way true disclosure will happpen is if us ordinary citizens of this planet make contact with E.T. and dont involve the 'goverments'

That is the end point I was trying to get to The Coward.. I just couldn't spit it out with all these jumbled thoughts and ideas shooting around in my skull.

To havanaja, if you are referring to the comment I made about sarcasm.. There might have been a misunderstanding.. That was directed to another poster.

I'm in the same boat as you man, what's done is done..

What if the Vatican is opening up about "ET brethren" because they know for a fact that there are nonhumans in human form? Or is it possible that's more of a factor than their alleged certainty of grays with probes etc.?

Or if something imminent might be around the corner? Who knows? I don't think they would be doing it out for fun, something got's to give!

And as for your laughter, I laughed my ass off when I thought the media would NEVER pull such a stunt, or the Church would either. Them to talk about UFOs and ETs? To tell us that aliens might be real? Now look at what happened. Everything is possible today, so don't be to sure about them not disclosing anything.

the only reason the Catholic Church made the statement they did is because the ufo/alien subject has become very popular and they had to address it somehow so people would not be led astray from Jesus.

the media covers it more because of the same reasons ...it has become one of the most talked about topics on the internet and is popular with most viewers and that will bring ratings.

look at all the tv shows that they have had about aliens and then all the movies also........it's big money driven if you ask me and has nothing to do with disclosure.

That's kind of a cop out man.. Anyone can say it's because its the Flavor of the Month.. The fact is, the mass media and religion used to look down on believers and people who showed any sign of the belief in ET's and UFO's.. With all of the knowledge available today, people are realizing more and more that this is most definitely a possibility.

To say the Vatican chose 2008 to release this information because it's a hot topic now is pure rubbish. UFO's and E.T. sightings/stories have been around for quite awhile and have posed as an almost "taboo" belief among some religious groups and in society in general. In the past 10-15 years everything has shifted. Religions, media and government now acknowledge something is out there and no longer laugh and condemn those who believe. In fact it's the exact opposite in the media anymore.. IF you don't believe you are questioned now. It wasn't too long ago that if you DID believe you were questioned or shrugged off as a nut.

The math and probability have been there since Astronomers knew how large the universe was.. Which has been quite awhile.
This subject has been debated among religious communities and the general public since the conception of the idea and now...All of the sudden... the Vatican decides.. "Today is a convenient day to tell the public its ok to believe in ET and Flying Saucers.."

I think Not..

Something, a phenomena, imminent happening or otherwise.. May be a threat to religion and government and these authorities and "powers that be" realize this. There has to be something that triggered the recent clarifications and release of information by the Vatican and Governments alike..

If everything was as simple as "Its the flavor man." We would see a lot more articles and attention paid to other alternative topics and we just don't.

Man you could not have put it any clearer!! That is exactly what I feel, you put it down perfectly. The stated above in my opinion makes all the sense in the world. They have had more than sixty years to come up with this "Flavor of the Month Story."

well why dont you tell me the reasons you think this statement was released if i am so wrong ?


With all of the knowledge available today, people are realizing more and more that this is most definitely a possibility.


yes because of the internet wich is 'quickening' the info and discussion of this topic.




To say the Vatican chose 2008 to release this information because it's a hot topic now is pure rubbish.


it's your choice to either take the red pill or the blue one....


Something, a phenomena, imminent happening or otherwise.. May be a threat to religion and government and these authorities and "powers that be" realize this. There has to be something that triggered the recent clarifications and release of information by the Vatican and Governments alike..


all they said is there may be alien life out there somewhere and your making a mountain out of a molehill.


Something, a phenomena, imminent happening or otherwise..


so your side of this discussion is just paranoia and speculation ?

Laugh it up boy, that don't play well here. So we are supposed to believe your simple story about the "Flavor of the Month" instead? That is it? You have solved the mystery! It’s "Popularity" Yes! That’s it, oh my God? News for you buddy, UFOs and Aliens were real popular in the 1990's. News agency laughed and did not want to touch the subject much, and the church demonized it.

Laugh all you want, and that's the only thing you can do. Laugh, and say simple things like it’s because its "Popular", but the reality is that when you have Governors, Vatican, Governments, Media, Ex Agents, and Militaries saying that there is something to the UFO phenomena you should listen. You could take it as a small warning, Or you could simply laugh your ass off like a fool and kiss it god bye if they are hostile.
