Before science, people could not explain many things that were happening in the world. They did not know that rain is caused when droplets in clouds grow and combine to become so large that the updrafts in the clouds can no longer support them, and they fall to the ground. They did not know that tsunamis are caused by sudden motion on the ocean floor, be it an earthquake, eruption or landslide.

They saw things in nature, and in the sky, and had no explanation. So they attributed these things to god(s). It made sense to them because they had no idea what they were really looking at or what was really happening. Religion and beliefs in god(s) already existed, so it was easy to apply natural phenomena to them.

We see something in the sky we cannot explain ("UFO") and since science cannot explain and we cannot admit ignorance, we attribute it to an extraterrestrial presense. ETs already existed in our mind thanks to wild imaginations and hollywood. These things could be a natural phenomena we haven't studied yet.

Just as rediculous as it was to say thunder was god walking on the sky, it's just as rediculous to say some mystery phenomena in the sky is a spacecraft.

"But the evidence is overwhelming"

Then everyone would know it to be true but they don't. When people blamed natural phenomena on god(s), they had plenty of evidence of God's existence. Dreams, visions, hallucinations, paintings, artifacts (the arc, etc), so on and so forth.

"Mirages in the sky may also be the source of many UFO reports. The planet Venus magnified and distorted by a mirage makes a believable flying saucer. Since the properties of the mirage change with the movement of the air masses, objects in the mirage may twinkle, jump around, seem to speed away or disappear."

More than likely, common metallic objects seen, are man-made. Black project or otherwise. It's the dancing lights, color, shape-shifting objects that interest me. Whether those are alien, interdimensional, or natural remains yet to be determined.

How do you have a hard time excepting that 'some' UFOs could be intelligently controlled extraterrestrial crafts when there are billions of planets in the Universe? I think it's more logical to believe that 'some' UFOs are ours, 'some' are theirs, and 'most' are hoaxes, natural phenomena, etc.

But radar and millions of witnesses can't be ignored.

Who's we? It seems to me you are arguing against a straw man.

Many members in the Aliens & UFOs forum don't automatically attribute anything to UFOs other than it's something unidentified that warrants further scientific investigation.



These things could be a natural phenomena we haven't studied yet.


You're talking about UFOs right? Well I'm glad you recognize its investigation has been neglected and I hope you join me and other members in asking for a real and serious scientific investigation of UFOs.



"But the evidence is overwhelming"


The evidence for UFOs is overwhelming, yes. There is plenty documented evidence of UFOs, be it in photos, videos, radar returns and even trace cases.

I remind you that UFO merely means unidentified flying object and it says nothing regarding its origins or nature.



Just as rediculous as it was to say thunder was god walking on the sky, it's just as rediculous to say some mystery phenomena in the sky is a spacecraft.


We say it's ridiculous to say thunder was "god walking on the sky" because we know what thunder is and why it happens. We can even predict it.

What do we know about UFOs? Not a damn much. So, when we seriously and scientifically study UFOs, then if the hypothesis of some of them being "spacecraft" is completely refuted, we'll be able to say that it is indeed ridiculous to believe UFOs are "spacecraft".

My meter just went off and scaled up against a religious rhetoric illustration.
