Ok this may not relate to all UFO's, but it offers a valid point to think on.

Firstly, I'm really sorry if this has been brought up before, I'm sure it has, but I couldn't find it using the search, in fact I wasn't even sure what to search for. I'm sorry if this is regularly discussed, feel free to delete thread if it is.

Basically, my thoughts could mean one of two things, or actually both things.

Has anyone else noticed that if you look at UFO's sightings in order of date, the oldest ones look the oldest, and the newest ones look more modern?

For example, in the 70's cars were square shaped, and old looking (now), it;s funny that the UFO's are also the same, squarer looking, less modern.

The ones today seem, rounder, more aerodynamic, more modern.

Why is this? It could be either, All of these are hoaxes, and the hoaxes are based on what's thought to be modern of that time, it's hard to imagine what more futuristic things would look like when some metals ect haven't been invented yet.

Or is it because they're man-made? And men have improved them, with the improvements in technology, just like we have with cars?

Of course, I'm not trying to suggest that aliens don't exist, or even that they're not visiting us.

We all know though however, that more often than not, they're hoaxes, and this for me is almost proof that most are hoaxes, and / or they're mad made.

What do you think?

Thanks for your time,
GodForbid.

how do you explain UFOs in ancient art?

If you wouldn't mind, please post the pictures you're speaking of. I've seen some pretty convincing ones, but they could also be something else, there's really no way of knowing what they are.

As said though, I'm not saying aliens haven't visited us ect, I just really feel the points above are worthy of discussion.

The reason is simple as you have said in the post we have progressed very greately from the ancient times and have created technological wonders and in a similar way, they have(aliens) improved their technology of space ships so that they could be faster and efficient.


Is that enough explanation.

Until you have seen one.. you won't understand. Only one of my sightings could I see a definate shape and it was a perfect metallic gold sphere.
Silent and hovering with the ability to accelate in a snap.

The odds of this being manmade, which is what I believe you are implying... is very unlikely in my humble opinion. At least not likely as of today.

i for one am a beleiver, but still i am willing to accept the possibility that they dont exist. the only time we can ever be 100% sure that aliens exist is when they present themselves to the people of earth. sure there are pictures and videos of ufo's but until the day they show us they do exist i am open to the opinions of beleivers and sceptics alike.

Afraid not
I've thought about what you just said before. I just think there's way too much similarities to our own progression. Why would a 60's UFO, LOOK like a 60's UFO? I mean, why so square, why wouldn't they have looked round and aerodynamic then too? I mean surely, if aliens are that advanced, why would their rate of technology, (be ok still a lot higher being able to space travel) but seem to look to improve ar the same rate as our technology is?

It is a mere coincidence that the alien space travel technology is improving side by side with us, though they are far more advanced than us, their space travel technology is progressing the same way we are progressing.

I have in fact had my own experience, I was travelling back to my home through a dark country back road in England, when I saw a bright red, small triangle, flying at a phenomenal rate across the sky. Could well have been space junk, but it sure didn't look anything like a shooting start, way too big, no trail ect.

My point is not that aliens aren't visiting us, but only that most of the pictures ect out there seem to go along with my thoughts. And therefore all likely hood, nearly all of these photo's are hoax's / mad made craft.

Your opinion is just as valid as mine, and I won't tell you you're wrong. I just can't believe this to be true, I'd have thought UFO's would look NOTHING like the technology we have available at the time, and I'd have though that it would have looked ridiculously different to what we would have available to us at the time.

I mean, I'm sure they'd have metals ect that we haven't heard of, and I'd have thought they would have had these before they could travel in space, and instead wouldn't be inventing things that are similar to what we're inventing and at the same time we are.

Hey check out art through the ages depicting ufos.

The year/age selector is on the left hand side.

I don't see many people claiming that it is aliens.. you are assuming people make that reference when they say UFO. UFO does not mean Extr-Terrestrial. It means unidentified. But in all seriousness... at least 2 of the things I have seen I would say are NOT manmade at the time that they were seen. Now that does not automatically mean alien, it could be any number of explanation which include some peoples beloved time travel theory and perhaps even dimensional. All I know is that we do not now and did not then have the technology to create what I saw.

No that wasn't my point, and I know what you mean about peoples conceptions of UFO's and that's not what my thoughts are. I too share what you think about this.

My point is the photographs, the way they change in technology (or appear to) at the same rate as ours do. We have square, old fashioned cars, and the pictures of UFO's (most of them) share the same qualitys.

Over the years, our technology has started looking more modern, yet, so have the UFO's.

It's a bit odd at the very least.

A third possibility: it is all in the eye of the beholder, that is mankind. If aliens are for real and they want us to see them, then they will pick a shape that is best suitable for us.

What I am trying to say: I don't think the way we observe them is the way they actually appear. it is probably impossible to perceive them as they are because our human sense are underdeveloped comparing to their reality.

Catch my drift?

Of course this is just my humble opinion.

well admitedly alot of photos are FAKE!
As I said somewhere else recently.. most real UFO sightings do not get recorded because when you are in that moment your mind is more on what the hell is that than oooh I need to get a picture of this!

hello...a link has been provided by another kind user...how do these fit into your theory?

I had a similar notion, sightings, as recorded from the 1940's through to the 1990's tended to be disk, cigar shaped, and glowing. Current sightings tend to be angular and tube shaped, also "shape shifted" (my feeling is that the craft has rotated and presented a different view) and clusters of orbs grouped closely together, individual orbs and many other unusual shapes. It could be that the advent of personal image capturing equipment has given us a more sophisticated view of these phenomena and a wide descriptive base to define our sightings.
Another thought that I have pondered on is the descriptions of alien creatures, thaty do not seem to have changed much over the years, but certain types seem to be seen in certain areas, like for example hairy with red eyes also winged reptile like seen in puerto rico and mexico/central america.
Just my opinion, could be wrong.

The pictures of ancient art work I really can't comment on more than I already did. They could be anything, they admittedly look incredibly like the UFO's talked about today, and that is great. I'm definitely not a non-believer. The pictures could be anything though, when humans have such an imagination, they could have been anything. It may look like a UFO to us, but that could be an angel, or a way of pointing out a special star. Snakemen, and humaniod beings with large eyes could also be part of the imagination - story telling. Or they could be aliens, I really don't know.

The pre-1940's pictures on there though, do go along with my point, one or two of them are interesting, the others really do go along with my point.

Interesting, I like your ideas.

I find it hard to believe they want us to see them though, as with crop circles, I don't understand why they wouldn't try to contact us through different channels. Ie: In person, land a UFO in London for instance. Why just make your craft look like something we might be able to kind of associate with materials at home, yet show them a flying space ship? Why not morph into a picture of who they are with a greeting message underneath instead?

Phew, finally someone who could explain it better than I could! Hehe, thanks a lot!

Completely agree with you. I'm glad we share the opinion.
