I love when people presume to understand how an ET would think - what it's goals/methods/abilities are. I am not saying I am convinced that these
visits are alien in nature, but for the sake of making my point lets pretend they are.
Why would they keep appearing in Stephenville? Perhaps there is something in the area they want. Most of us here have seen video or heard stories of
these aircraft drawing energy from our planet in some capacity, correct? Maybe the town sits on a hot spot.
Maybe, as mentioned above, one of their own really is buried nearby.
Or perhaps from above the composition of Stephenvilles city lights looks like something familiar to them and they like to hover there because it
reminds them of home.
The fact is, we don't know the facts as to why they do anything. Period. If you DO know the facts than you are privy to knowledge that is being kept
from your own people and shame on you for that. But that's another subject entirely.
As far as putting lights on a craft being a purely Terrestrial concept - well I just have to laugh at this one. Again, we just can't know. It's
possible that, like us, they need them to prevent collision in the dark skies. It's also been said that the lights are used as a form of
communication both between these craft, and in some cases between them and us. Just because they can get to our planet (or shift into our dimension
depending on what you believe and what species we are dealing with) that doesn't mean they are more technologically advanced than us. It just means
they managed to discover a few things we have not. While they can apparently do some pretty amazing things with these craft, who is to say the ability
to toast a piece of bread isn't lost on them?
Those of you who presume to know the inner workings of these lifeforms watch too many movies. You are basing your assumptions on our own limitations
or lack thereof and your stunted thinking is a big part of why humanity has been closed off to such things.
Open your minds to all possibilities. Do not limit yourselves to what logic tells you is most plausible because logical thinking has gotten us into a
lot of trouble over the span of our history. It has it's place, certainly. But when dealing with the unknown we need to be prepared for anything.
