Someone said in the beginning of the thread that people don't take into account the vastness of our universe. Universe in my opinion is a small word
to use. In reality, so far as we know, space does not end. It just keeps going and going. We have proof of other planets beyond our reach and
"clear" view. We have proof, thanks to the Hubble telescope, that there are thousands, perhaps millions of galaxies much bigger than our own. To
assume we are alone, in the infinity of space, amongst endless planets and galaxies to be absolutely ridiculous. Have they been to earth? Not
likely...but it cannot be ruled out 100%. After all we don't even know where we came from.
I say this often. If you take every grain of sand on our planet, and compare that to the entire infinity of space, we are but a single grain of that
sand. That is how small we are in terms of space. We are seriously out in the middle of no where and its not a wonder why we have not been contacted.
We just wouldn't get noticed or would appeal to a being that is of a higher intelligence than us.
As to the wow signal, I read recently, and I cannot find the link at the moment, that it could very well have been a beacon traveling though space
looking for signs of intelligent life, but life like them. In terms of that, we would have no interest to 'aliens', at this time, unless they want
to invade or steal our resources. After all, we can only go so far into space with humans, and the furthest thing we have in space as we speak are the
Voyager spacecrafts. We simply do not have technology that would appeal to a more intelligent race of beings.
As to artwork and UFOs, I do not believe for a second that all of those works of art allegedly depicting UFOs is all 100% religious. It makes no sense
at all. During those times the only thought man had about flying was from a bird. To assume all those paintings have to do with religion is again,
ridiculous. Note that aliens, as we think of them today, and UFOs, did not start to amaze us until AFTER the Roswell incident. No movies, or books
prior to then really exist on the level we see today. Those paintings, especially the one posted, show a lot of detail in terms of a 'ship/UFO'. How
could such detail be achieved when no one even tried to make a flying device back then?
On a closing note, here is a part of a scripture I have in my SETI@home profile...you guys can see it how you want but nonetheless, as mentioned, the
bible also does in some ways depict what could be 'alien' visits and there are more than just one scriptures that might point to it than the one I
"By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible." -
