Honestly, I'm at a point in my life where I believe so strongly in aliens and UFOs that I literally want to smack people who say it's "impossible." My best friend spent half an hour explaining to me how dumb it is that I would believe such a thing.

I want to know how you guys deal with people who call you crazy or just won't "get" what you're trying to say?

Ill just say sayinng that aliens are impossible is a pretty dumb statement. However most of the time people are not saying aliens are not real only the stories connected to them. Ill buy that there are aliens out there, i will not buy that someone has been getting abducted for years, has a 1/2 alien baby on some ship and they are light beings from another "density" or dimension.

Good question. But the answer is simple.
You're aware, we're aware. Your job is to educate the people around you about these things. If they can't accept the information then move on to someone else. They'll eventually be faced with reality.
The people who just don't believe are like little babies. They're children. They haven't grown up and realized the world around them yet and don't worry because one day they will. And they'll all come back to you and say "Lauren, you were right. I'm an idiot."

So how do I personally deal with it? Patience. Soon enough this will all be common knowledge and people like us will go from being ridiculed to being praised. Don't worry it will happen. Just be patient. And enjoy your knowledge.

I try to present them with facts as far as my friends go. Crazy thing is my lady friends
all seem to absorb it pretty well most of the time the ladies like to discuss and learn of the potentials...
But then again they also refer to me as a WEREWOLF-VAMPIRE-ALIEN OR ANGEL lol at the mysticness within.

but anyway have you seen the movie contact? if not im sure you would like it well anyway ther is a quote id like to share with you
"I'll tell you one thing about the universe, though. The universe is a pretty big place. It's bigger than anything anyone has ever dreamed of before. So if it's just us... seems like an awful waste of space. Right?"
also you should checkout some of the works of carl sagan

I have found the best way to keep your sanity is to remember that a persons belief system is largely built upon thier own personal experiences.

Those who dismiss or scoff at you thoughts or beliefs in the possibility of extraterrestial life very possibly find it hard to deal with other people who differ from them because of race or ethnicity. I am not saying these people are biggoted, I am just saying they do not readily relate to others on a personal level.

It may be best to continue to work on your own tollerance skills just to make up for their short commings. Some people are just not as developed or evolved as others.

You asked how to deal with people who don't get what you're saying, the odds are those same people are wondering why 'you' don't get what 'they're' saying. My advice is don't get into debates with people who don't believe in your belief, what's the point of speaking to them about the subject if they don't already believe UNLESS you're just trying to convert them to your belief, is that what it is? Is it that you want to smack everyone who doesn't share the same belief as you?

I got beyond the point of caring what people think. They will all get there in their own time.

Don't waste your energy with it. Most of those people who call you a freak are just living in fear of truth. Admitting this possiblity opens the doors to many things that scare the bejesus out of people.

It takes guts to believe in the unseen. It also takes guts to act with compassion. That's why there are so many non-believers and so much apathy. Believing means taking action with yourself. They just don't wanna do it.

Move on. Let them be. If they don't want help, they don't need help.

I've only had a couple of people so far that just down right thought I was loony. The rest asked me if I could prove it....and I showed them what I could, and the response was pretty cool actually. The would go... "Hmpf. Wonder when the governments going to fess up." And that's about the gist of it. No freaking out...no panic... Actually got a few grins. And a good friend of mine which I've known for years whome was in the air force had a "slip of the tongue" when they said something along the lines of..."oh yeah, we have those but we don't even know how to start them." (In reference to a picture of the craft seen in Istanbul) Then there was a whoopsie..did I say that out loud face.

If you feel the urge to be violent with those who disagree with you, perhaps it is time to step back and divorce yourself from the subject for a while. Or at least do not put yourself in situations where someone may disagree with you.

I have never met someone who did not believe alien life exists in the universe if you question them enough, while there is no direct evidence the maths is staggeringly in favor whether it be intelligent life or not. I have met lots of people who do not believe intelligent alien life has visited earth, and rightly so as there is absolutely no solid evidence that they have. People need to differentiate between the two, the old argument of believers saying it is silly to think we are alone in the universe...hence aliens are visiting our little planet has more holes in it than a sieve.

No that's not what it is. I'm very tolerant to people's beliefs and have always been respectful. Which is why I get so annoyed at people calling me crazy or ridiculous. I'm someone who loves to talk about different opinions, but not if it means people are going to take personal jabs at me. It's not really all that necessary.

As evidenced by your desire to slap people who disagree...

You have to learn to deal with the frustration. Yes, it can be annoying when someone so vehimently dissagrees with you. Best thing I do to deal with it is take a couple of nice long slow deep breaths, and on the out breath, say to myself in my head "just let go now" It's like instacalm. Try it now, get yourself all worked up thinking about situations where this has happened, and then let it go. Rather handy for when you're up against the preverbial brick wall. (it's also good for any other time you may need to chill out a bit)

and edit, I'm pretty sure that the OP wasn't really saying that he's going to start slapping people he dissagrees with. It's just a turn of phrase. (at least, that's how I took it, and anyway, we get pissed off at people sometimes, we all know people who grind your gonads to the point where you could happy splat them one. Let's all get down from the high horse, none of us are perfect)

I agree. I don't really think s/he is going to hit someone; I take it in the literal sense to poke a little fun at the OP, no maliciousness intended.

But in all seriousness, my advice still stands as is. That particular turn of phrase still denotes an incredible frustration and perhaps over-reaction to contrary opinions.

And to echo the sentiments of another member, are you sure you are listening to what others have to say, Lauren? They may be saying the idea of ET visitation is crazy but are the necessarily saying you are crazy?

With infinite possibility in the universe, there is more chance of there being intelligent life out there than there not being. People who believe that we are the only life force in the universe are pretty naive... to say the least.

Don't deal with them at all. Why would you even bother?

Why do you think you are so special and unique and intelligent that you need to try and persuade everyone to think like you do?

Think of it this way, if your friends came to you and tried to convince you how wrong and crazy you are, would you believe them? No, you wouldn't.

Well, they operate the same way. So don't even waste your time.

I think you'll find that most skeptics do think aliens exist, but that there has not yet been really good evidence that aliens have visited the Earth in spaceships.

In fact, there was a study done a while ago (i can't find it right now) that says the most average people believe in life elsewhere in the universe -- However, that percentage of believers goes down when asked about alien-controlled UFOs.

I don't know who it is that you were talking to that makes you so mad that you want to smack them, but most educated people believe in life elsewhere in the universe.


So how do I "deal"?...

Personally, I believe that there most likely is life out there somewhere in the vastness of the universe (although I can't be sure). I wish there was good evidence for alien visitation of Earth, but I haven't seen it (and don't tell me about case X or case Y -- I'm pretty well-versed on the subject).

I deal with it by not giving in to my "wishes" and instead stick with the facts.
