Do you believe in GOD? If not why? The religious folk have just about enough evidence as you guys do for alien contact. Stories, pictures/videos of
something religious and others, the ufo people would not want to contradict itself by saying thier proof is hogwash would they.
Dude, check it:
The religious folks have a book (the bible). That's second and third-hand knowledge and heresay - not even translated 100% correct IMHO. Does alot of
religious belief and faith alone not stem from that book that's 1,800 or so years old?
So you got that.
The UFO folks have 100's of thousands of sightings - in the last 60 years alone.
The UFO folks have the battle of Los Angeles, which is a smoking gun - in my eyes...
They also have Roswell, which was not a damned weather balloon.
So I mentioned sightings first, my bad....
The objects in the background of antiquity paintings - don't say UFO'believers only see what they wanna see in this case - any person with logic can
deduce that those objects are out of place (technologically speaking with regards to the era), and they are just not earthly.
Stone tablets (Sumeria), Ancient Egypt (The Pyramids?), The Mayans (2012 prophecy aside, look at their pyramids, structures, and their knowledge of
Billions of stars times billions of galaxies - 300 or so exoplanets already discovered with our primitive technology (all found within the last 21
years) - it never ends, so there is definetly something out there. There is definetly other life. No physical proof needed!
...But are we being visited?
Who's to say that 30% of civiliizations from every other planet (that have life) hasn't or couldn't have been around before we got started? What if
this 30% or so started their life cycles 3 billions years before us? Hell, 3 millions years before us and didn't kill themselves off? I'm sure they
have developed deep-space travel, profound spiritual enlightenment, other things I can't even begin to imagine...
We've been dabbling with machines since the 1400's (the printing press), but things didn't really take off until the mid 1800's (thanks to Ben
Franklin and his discovery of electricity) with the Industrial Revolution. So, we're only a few hundred years into all of this technology, and we
think we know it all. We haven't a clue. For real...
We think we know where we came from, but we have no proof (based on science - evolution, which is incomplete or inconclusive because of the so-called
missing link, and the primordial soup theory - which doesn't answer how we have countless numbers of different species and sub species... Billions of
different creatures! Here - on this one planet!!! All from one or two cells?
We think we will go to a Heaven or a Hell based on our actions we create during this life (so much for mistakes!), and we will kill, die, and try to
convert other's belief's for these things (based on religion).
There are too many things that science and religion can not answer.
I'm sorry, do I have this wrong?
