Catch 22 really. We are suckers easily fooled and hard .ed fools easily pacified.


So let me think about this one...

Who is the sucker easily fooled?
-The one who believes grass is growing in front of their porch? or
-The one who believes a UFO sucked all the water out of a lake?

OK I guess we all have to answer that for ourselves. Whichever answer we come up with really says a lot about us.

I think you should get your facts straight.

It was a UFO.

It happens all the time.

Get your facts straight? If that was the case we wouldn't be having this discussion...because there would be no question, only facts.



Sorry.....

See my earlier posts in this thread.

I was being sarcastic.

It would be very unlikely for a UfO to suck out water. Imagine the mass of that water. To lift it up, the energy wasted on it would not be compensated by the energy water contains in itself if applicable. Water would be a very weak propellant for any kind of engine. The only thing it could be used,would be drinking water. To absorb such a huge amounts of water for drinking you probably would need a mothership a size of a new york full with small little green men. And that is very unlikely. Besides if such an activity was going on, US Keyhole class satellites would definitely pick it up and intensively film it. aprobability taht it was sucked up by a UFO- 1%. probability that due to plate shifts in earth the water seeped through a crack- 80%.

[edit on 08.15.09 by Advancedboy]


So you are assuming that the energy that an extraterrestrial craft uses conventional propulsion. You are assuming, once again, that water is only useful for consumption. You are assuming that the craft needs to be quite large in order to store the water.


I do believe that there are extraterrestrial beings visiting Earth, but...

We have NO SOLID EVIDENCE of their existence. We have NO SOLID EVIDENCE that we understand their propulsion. How can anyone speculate as to anything regarding extraterrestrial craft? I've read so many posts that "explain" the maneuvers (actions, etc.) of UFO's. Where is the user's manual, I'd love to read it.

From the look of it, it was a glacial melt lake in the Andes. So what happened is probably pretty easy to figure.

One, an ice dam was al lthat was keeping hte water from draining away. Said dam melted / broke, water drains away.

Two, similar scenario... the Andes are pretty active. it's not unbelievable that a fissure could have opened and drained the lake into a cave system.

Let me explain it to you:

"The sucker that is easily fooled" - Are the ones who believe anything that supports the truth they desire (Alien Autopsy or interviews).
They are also the people who will believe anything that keeps their world unchanged. (weather balloon)

"The hard-.ed fools easily pacified" - Are the people, who will gladly accept any "reasonable" explanation to dismiss what they are seeing or hearing. (weather balloon)
They are also the people who will dismiss reasonable information in order to believe what they see and hear. (Chinese fire lamps)

Oh s*it! There is gonna be an earthquake! That is a sure sign of a big one coming! Heck, tonight (8/16//2009) there have actually already been several sizeable ones, including another 7.0 in indonesia, I have yet to see anything on it in the news though.

There is evidence to explain the propulsion and power generation system. Although we can't replicate their power generation due to our limited scientific understanding, all evidence suggests nuclear fusion. The same fusion which powers our sun.

Based on various UFO reports: The presence of sulfur & potassium chloride, molten alloy ejection, microwaves, extreme heat, and surrounding plasma suggests a high electrically charged craft. The energy in maneuvers witnessed have been estimated at billions of volts.

High energy can also account for their ability to travel through water at high speeds since a pocket of gas is likely to envelop the craft.

As for propulsion; it can be replicated with T.T. Brown's ion propulsion design but a cordless version will require a nuclear fusion power source. A technology which is not available (at least, not publicly).

For the skeptics: Ion propulsion does work in space as evident by NASA's use of it. Sorry if this post was a bit off-topic. I couldn't resist countering a common myth regarding insufficient evidence to support the physics.

Water expands when frozen, right? So if you were to fill a glass with ice, to the top, then fill the remaining space with water, when the ice melted the glass would not over flow. Now, if the ice were actually acting as a dam, that's another story. (Time to get hypothetical) As for propulsion...I don't think that a being intelligent enough to travel hundreds (if not more) of times farther than we could ever dream of would be using any kind of combustion engine (like mentioned early on in this thread...burning hydrogen...). There was an interesting thread I read a few days ago, and there was a video talking of a hollow metal doughnut, filled with a ??superfluid?? which was described as a fluid that creates no friction. The fluid was somehow electrically charged and was made to spin at speeds near or at the speed of light. Clearly, we have no idea what would happen if this were attempted, but very interesting, indeed.

I was watching something on Discovery last week about ice, and there was something similar to this on there, and basically, the water was just draining away below the surface.

Some are saying about the weight of the water if a UFO/'s did collect up the lake. But lets think for a moment that if there using Anti-Gravitational devices then Gavity wont be a problem to them as there not using conventional means of propulsion as in thrust/fuel. They'd be using Electromagnetics to propel the craft against Earths magnetism, thus using Earths own power itself to move as much mass as theyd want. The only limitation would be the size of the craft/s themselves in comparable to what they want to move.

Not buying it........

Also, what kind of lake has icebergs in it but is only 30 meters deep? Any body of water that has been around long enough to contain icebergs, would be considerably deeper then that....

naa too much doesnt add up...




[edit on 15-8-2009 by ManBehindTheMask]


I'm a BIT skeptic too, but if you watch the video, near the end it says that a UFOlogist affirms that they often suck water....


Sorry not buying it. This UFO..ologist.....does he/she have any actual evidence that UFO's "suck water".
Also keep in mind that icebergs are also WATER. The UFO's can fly light years, faster then the speed of light but nobody on the ship can melt a big ice cube?
Again, not buying it.

I think the most simplest explanation is Ground Fissure.

Exactly - I mean, they need water to make Fosters beer, and we all know that unearthly swill is not made by anyone with a strand of human decency in them.

S&F cool thread!

This happened to a lake near me "Spirit Lake" although it didnt completely empty over night. Odd!

This lake developed a large crack in the botton causing the lake to leak. They fixed it by using Bentonite clay.

All the docks were sitting on the dirt. I wonder if UFO's are powered on water.

Are there any close up pictures of this lake?

I think I found the answer:



Btw, it doesn't take a major fissure to drain a lake.

WOW! It just never ceases to amaze me how supposedly educated people, like some on this board, are no more mentally evolved than some tribesmen in the middle of the rain forest. Some people should be ashamed of yourselves for continuing to try to argue that this was done by aliens when it has been shown over and over how it has a natural cause. I guess when you get sick you pray to aliens or call over the neighborhood witch doctor for a cure.

I would say there is a natural reason for this and what we have is the usual thing where a bunch of uneducated people attribute something to UFO's simply because they are unable to understand it.


I agree with what you stated.

The most probable answer would be some sort of geologic event.
