They may believe there is magical Jebus in the sky...but are there? Were there?

Just to say that someone believes in Jebus in the sky, or god in the heavens...when there is no "proof" do you come to the conclusion that aliens are real? Just asking....I am fascinated in those of you who had no actual experience to come to that conclusion.

I'm being serious.

No worries.. we sent a message out to the Gliese 581 system and the top message...

Hello Gliese 581d inhabitant. Can you help us humans travel through space and become smart like you. Please do not eat us we are a friendly race. Angus Pigott Canberra, Australia

So we should be okay

Well at least until they find out some of us eat the only intelligent species on Earth.. the Dolphins... THEN we are TOAST

Plain and simple - it would be extremely arrogant for us to assume that we are the only living beings in the entire universe. What got me interested was the mystery and intrigue surrounding the subject matter and what made me convinced was the commonality to many of the stories about encounters and abductions (which I've never personally experienced thank goodness).

So you believe on a hunch? Very interesting. I assumed most who "believed" had a story, experience of some kind...that's why I asked my original question.

No, I don't really "believe" as belief has some sort of definate knowledge...its a strong word I am not comfortable with.
I believe in the possibility...and I have a hunch they have been here...suspect they have been here, however, I don't believe (yet) because there is no proof..there is a mountain of evidence, all falling just short of smoking gun proof.
And since I do not have a subjective experience, then I cannot believe based on personal experience either (stories from others are neat, but it could be, proof from others, or personal experience is required for me to cross that final line)

I believe in ghosts, even though it makes no sense and there is no proof..but that belief comes from my subjective experience. honestly, ghosts make no sense to my worldview, but it happened anyhow, so ya...there you go...I however do not label what a "ghost" is beyond a description of events best described.

I have never had the alien experience, yet based on my friends daughter, I have to believe there is some kind of alien out there we know nothing about in the general public. Kinda scary in a way.

See, thats what I mean.
You believe based on anothers perceptions and accounts. you have to do a lot of assumptions to get there...assume nobody is pulling someone elses legs, assume nobody has been shown false information (those aliens were actually robots and this was a test on the daughter by the government to see if she can even be trusted to see the real, show her the robot aliens and see if she suddenly talks to others about aliens...if she does, fire her, if she doesn't, then let her know the real secrets verses the fake secret)

You can suspect, you can entertain the thought, etc...but why flat out believe? Ultimately, you don't know what is happening beyond what your taught. Would you believe in christianity if someone said they met jesus? would you believe in islam if someone said they met a jinn? etc...

The whole ET subject is fascinating and passionate, however, I personally don't think belief in what should be the realm of science is required, or even desired...once you start believing without evidence, then you quickly turn this into a religion verses a uncovering.

What I saw in the sky was almost 23 years ago. For a couple months I thought about it, then slowly it faded away. Until I read the post on here about 11:11. Which I distinctly remember seeing after that UFO(?) sighting. It happened for the longest time. Maybe a connection to those who have seen "something", or maybe not.

UFOs are not necessarily extraterrestrial crafts...UFOs are simple scientific fact...many nations on earth have confirmed this, plenty of documents are released...
The question is not about UFOs...its about aliens..I don't care about ufo encounters overall as they could simply be seeing some new hover drone designed by the military, or a new stealth craft that the public won't know about for 50 years...etc
