My father, deceased, was stationed at White Sands during WWII. He claimed to have seen flying discs while there. He became an avid fan of Edgar Casey during his life and liked to collect photos of UFOs.
My mom, an avid "born again" (into fear) religious nut, disapproved of his interest and forbid him to discuss this with us and hid the books and pitcure from us, often throwing them into our fireplace, during their arguements. She was sure that UFOs were from Satan and she thought that communist were ovetaking the US government through rock and roll.
That's probably what my dad and his evangelical parents would do. "Demons! Those are not aliens! They're of the devil!" I bet some of the aliens are laughing their asses off at these brainwashed morons.
"They still think we're demons? It's been over 2,000 years and these christians haven't figured it out yet. If they think they'll be so surprised once they find out we're from another planet, wait until they find out that their god doesn't exist. That will be quite amusing."

Certainly makes sense as the 'alien' myth is designed to fit a given culture - ours a 'space-age' one. Of course people saw the discs in the sky, it is Satan's plan after all.edit on 16-1-2011 by alien because: ...large quote removed...

Yes well it just seams people of ATS do not seam to understand my sarcasm.
Colonel at time Blanchard ordered a press release stating that the USAAF had recovered a flying disc. When in fact according to the USAAF it turned out to be nothing more than tin foil and a bit of balsawood.
Before he retired they made him a 4 star General. My point being if it where true that all they had was nothing more than tin foil and a bit of balsawood, he should have been locked a a white padded room.
Perhaps it is just the UK humor.

Dude you are trying way to hard to push your triangle UFO beliefs onto us. Who are you to say that there is one and only one type of UFO, and any other claim that is made about the shape of a UFO is false? Besides, that video you posted about the Triangle UFO is not even an extraterrestrial craft, it is a hang glider. Don't believe me? Watch from 14:00 Also, Phoenix Lights were debunked as flares. You can even see the flares being dropped in a straight line, just as it would look if a plane is flying by and dropping them. However I am still on the fence about this debunking job, because I have heard that several eye-witnesses saw the Phoenix Lights hover stationary for hours without dropping like the flares did, and the flares were dropped afterwords as a distraction. But hearing that is much less reliable than a legitimate video that brings forward solid evidence and a straight-forward explanation

That German Brazil UFO base video is amazing, I can't believe I haven't sniffed that out on the internet yet. I heard the guy in the video make the claim that the Germans developed those UFOs around 1947, do you think that had anything to do with the Roswell craft that got shot down/crashed? He said that it was just some "Good old fashioned German engineering", but it's a pretty big coincidence that it happened right after Roswell IMO. I've also heard the theory that after that craft crashed, the USA hired some German scientists to back engineer it and create one that could fly.
Another thing that I found interesting was after the UFO crashed at Roswell, it was clearly in the newspaper as "UFO Crashed And Recovered" or something along those lines, right? So our top military personnel mistook a UFO for some tinfoil from a weather balloon? I can't imagine that a weather balloon crashing would catch anybody's attention, and you would have to be nearly blind to mistake an alien craft for a weather balloon if that was the case.
Maybe the ET's were planning on revealing themselves to the people of this planet, so they send down a craft to come and introduce themselves, but our idiotic military can only think with their guns so naturally they shot it down. The other ET's saw this display of barbaric brutality, and decided that it was in their best interests to never make themselves public to the people of this planet, or at least wait until we stop being so stupid.
Just a theory
This equipment was the most successful tracking radar available at the time and it was relatively new; the manuals on it were published in April, 1946 more than six months after the end of World War II. The radar was designed, during the war, to locate enemy aircraft and to provide an antiaircraft director with data on the slant range, azimuth and elevation angles to an aircraft. The SCR-584's maximum range in the search mode was 70,000 yards (39.7 statute miles) and it could track targets, either automatically or manually) if the range to the target was less than 32,000 yards (18.2 miles).
It explains nothing. It's page after page of unsubstantiated assertions, much of it based on the premise that the bible is in fact true with alien and UFO sightings interpreted in the most negative light possible.

For those that are open minded enough to consider the possibility of the UFO phenom, both past & present having a spiritual tie, this web page explains things pretty well.

Would it be ok if you didn't quote my entire post in your previous message to this one? Maybe just the relevant part you are replying to? In this case you are going on about some video, and as of yet I have not mentioned any videos anywhere, so I'm guessing you hit quote on the wrong message. Could you just hit reply instead of quote from now on? And before your alloted time runs out, how about trimming down your -mistake- post down to a sentence and move on?
How about trimming down your mistake of writting 'The Day Before Roswell',when it was acually a month before roswell.
How about trimming down who told you this to some one credible,then picking a name out the air ,telling every one he told you this,lol.REALLY !
'185 stars' get real. how about trimming your flags down on one post .
