The way people look at "proof". People have seen flying objects over major cities. Heard accounts of abductions from credible witnesses, and yet, they have to have "proof". Yet, when it come to "God" they'll believe every word never having seen or heard anything except that which was written forever ago, that has been changed and mistranslated 400 times or so.......because that's what they have been told since childhood and within our society....

couldn't agree more. that's why i look more upon the bible as an biblical/archeological asset. there are numerous references to sites of archeological importance. quite interresting actually. i found this out when i attended a cource in bible-archeology when i was younger.

Hi DarkSpace...I agree completely! I have read the bible, I just see it different than "most, and like many others that see it the same way I do. It's a wonderful history/archeological text!!.

people only believe that they have been abducted because the people they go to see to help them keep pounding it into their brain that they have been abducted. thats the only reason. people who have vivid dreams of being abducted clam to have been actually abducted.

Luckily, I've had proof provided to my own eyes... Finding the rest of the evidence is only to increase understanding...as the question of proof has already been solved for me.


"burns my broomsticks" that's a great Wiccan catch phrase, hehe...I'll have to remember that one for some friends, hehe...

Actually, it could be argued that this goes for some of the people in the UFO community as well. For most, the ET phenomena is a question of belief and faith, much as this is the case for believers in God. Remember, the majority of people have never met an agnel nor had a first-hand extra terrestrial experience.

Of course, one could argue there's more evidence pointing to the existance of ETs, but you still have to want to believe in the evidence and or witnesses to take them into consideration.

But I agree with you. It's a contradiction.

That is indeed correct, up to an extent, but it is my personal opinion that there are more people today that have seen an a UFO than have seen God

I know what you all mean though about how people wil believe one thing and not enough purely on how much it has been drilled into there head.

I think at this present moment in time, most things that we believe in are based upon Faith. Since we dont actually really have much hard evidence of whats going on.

Mayor religions have been followed since thousands of years. People believe in them (without the need of tangible proof) because thats the way they have been raised.
Religious people consider their own as the absolute true, its not questionable.
But thousands of years ago, it wasnt that way. Christians, for example, have long been persecuted in the begining (been eaten by lions, crucified, etc, etc).

Maybe in some hundred years...
