Finally a survey I can participate in.
I believe the specific cases questions should have a "I don't know about this case" option. Linking to them is a good idea, but that option should be provided for people who didn't do deep research about them by themselves.

I'd like to criticize the survey for many reasons.



I believe that our solar system and the Earth has been, and currently is being studied or otherwise visited by one or more extraterrestrial species.


Number one issue: The options are limited and I was forced to choose "Neutral" due to the fact that I don't think we are at the moment visited.

Secondarily I find it annoying that you bothered to put a list of UFO sightings and included even Roswell case, yet ignored such important sightings and Abductions such as Betty- Hill abduction case,The Bob White Artifact or Colares UFO-incident.

Thirdly in none of the questioned sightings were there neutral option between like for example "Unsure"
"Not enough data" etc. Due to that fact I was forced to choose "Maybe Terrestial".



And last thing... All your cases, which you choose to ask about occurred in United States, but there are many other great cases in the BIG and SCARY World. Not to mention that ATS is international site and people from all over the world visit it... I would love if you could add more well-known cases into the list.

I agree completely. A "not enough data" was critical for many of the questions. I too had to select "Maybe Terrestrial" and "Maybe Extraterrestrial" many times. A "I don't know" option and a "not enough data for me to make an opinion" option would have been great for the case-specific questions.

UFOS and ALIENS The Existence

I believe There may be !!

Skeptic Overlord

The Video Below is One of the Most Thoughts that goes through my mind when you think of

North African, Middle eastern Babylonian Sumerian, PreColumbian (N&S Americas ) to Greek & Roman Mythology and when you think of the Gods & Demigods Angels around the World with Similarity's of Attribute's and Virtues to Each One Yet Some parts of the World have not made Much Contact Until later of the late 15th century Let Alone of Mysteries of the Anomaly's of Mans PAST as to my Favorite Site Puma Punku
and Pre Columbia of the Mayan, Aztec ,Inca Ruins which the Sites Would Win First Place in Architect Contest Against Egypt! and Ancient Europe !

how GOD and Religion created?


When you Look at The Human Chromosome 2 The Fusion that to me is not an Natural Error
and the 3 to 4 percent of the Unknown that Humans Have that Primates that do not have !

Evidence that human chromosome #2 resulted from the fusion of two chimp chromosomes
by Edward T. Babinski
www.edwardtbabinski.us...

But with Battles of Ken Miller Actual Scientist and Lloyd Pye of Creation & Evolution

Ken Miller on Human Evolution (Video)
www.youtube.com...

Lloyd Pye - Ancient Genetic Engineering
www.youtube.com...

The question is How Chromosome 2 was Fused and Alteration of Chromosome 13 to begin With

but when you see that Humans can do the Same !

When you see Humans ( playing GOD ) can Duplicate (Clone ) Manipulate Gene Structure Rearranging the DNA Sequence as it been Proven On Animals & Especially on Plants as there is many articals to this

If we can do this what you would see in the Documentary Called

Animal Farm: Risks Of Genetic Engineering

Below Video



Then I would have no Doubt in my mind that a Sentient Something has done the same thing to US !
Some Peope Say its GOD or GODS ! or Just Aliens Beings that came from Heaven to Earth

When you think of that Logic ..
you may want to Step back and take a 2nd look about some of those Ancient Mythology's
of what they are saying !

As Humans (Homo Sapiens Has Been here for Only 200,000+ Years as Science Claim

as we Only Have Evidence of an Invention Explosion in the last 100+ years !
and a Slow Pace Spurts within the 5,000 known Years

but there nothing to say that we have a Culture/Race So advanced that they stayed hidden from Us
in between those 200,000 Years !! but it doesn't explain Our 3 percent difference of Apes & Man nor the
Fusion of Chromosome 2 of How & Why

We Have Useless body parts from Evolution or Left Overs from Genetic Alteration Boost

Thanks for making that poll I enjoyed it
Can't wait to see the results!

I have been researching the UFO phenomenon for many years. After reading and hearing from military pilots, military radar operators, all types of military personnel from Generals to security people, from civilian pilots, civilian radar operators and astronauts to local police, I believe we have been and are currently being visited by extraterrestrial intelligent beings. To dismiss the reports and statements of the above mentioned individuals as all liars, hoaxers, or individuals unable to distinguish fantasy from reality, is in my opinion a condemnation of the human race. If we can't trust these people to be telling us the truth, who can we trust?

I just took the survey and I was surprised that none of the questions had an answer option of "I don't know."

That is a normal response option to this type of survey, yet ya'lls did not contain that option.

I, personally, do not know. I guess the questions where I went one click one way or the other will show up on your results though.



I have sen UFOS 3 times, and that is just it, the definition of UFO. They were unidentified, so I don't know what they were, but that does not mean they were extraterrestrial or a gov't project or what.

I DON'T KNOW !!!

This was a poorly written questionnaire. I didn't bother to complete the first page.

Wait, you didn't bother to complete the "First Page"? You mean there is actually a second page? For me, the questionnaire stopped after I clicked next. Am I missing something?

I think this would work better if we could leave choices blank. I havent done enough research on a few of those specific cases to give my opinion.

I doubt all of the voters have. might get skewed results and people not voting

You want some cheese with that whine? If this poll proves anything, it's that people love to complain. "ZOMG it only had extra-terrestrials and not inter-dimensional, waah waah there was no I don't know option, boo hoo it was poorly written so I didn't bother to answer a few questions!" Damn people, it's just a poll for fun, it's not like it's going to determine the fate of the world or anything.

I was a bit confused by the Phoenix lights question !
iirc wasn't there two separate events....The first was a set of lights giving the impression of a large triangular craft travelling across the country, FOLLOWED by a trail of lights, that I believe have been shown to be flares.
.


My thoughts exactly. But Hey, no poll is going to be perfect for everyone and they said at the outset that they only included a few case studies.
For those that felt other cases should have been mentioned, we'd be here all week if everyone got the cases they wanted posted...

Yup, it has certainly been fun watching the debates on what answers the poll did or did not provide. It's pretty simple really. If you feel that the phenomena is inter-dimensional it is possible that the phenomena is terrestrial. My reasoning here is that all dimensions make up the environment we live in, whether or not we perceive them all of the time. I believe someone already mentioned it in the responses. So the best answer to that particular question available would be terrestrial which also covers man made and military testing.
If however, you believe in sentient life from other universes, this one or distant galaxies far far away then your answer would be extra terrestrial. We are so good at labeling things, behaviour and people, I personally can't see what the problem is opting to lump a few opinions in a category that doesn't quite fit but will do in a pinch. I will be interested to see what the outcome is that's for sure.

Now it's time to shift gears away from current events for a while and offer our members and visitors a survey on what is still a very popular topic on ATS, UFOs and Extraterrestrials.

This new survey covers some important broad-strokes to gauge the opinions of our members and visitors on some basic UFOlogy ideas, as well as opinions on five popular UFO incidences (I'd like to include more, but the five selected seem to be a good mix). Also, in what is certainly to be the most hotly-anticipated result, you'll be able to rank what you feel represents the most significant "danger" to the perceived credibility of UFOlogy.

Enjoy!

some of the sightings are neither terrestial nor extra-t. need an option for this.

Wow, how is it complaining to point out there is a great segment of the UFO community who views these entities as not extraterrestrial but also do not deny they exist? Considering two of the most well-respected UFO researches in the field also feel this way?

Ok we know 2 people with great credentials believe this but it doesnt make the theory any less flawed.

I would have loved to seen the question, "Has your opinion about the validity of UFOs changed since you have became a member of ATS". In 1972, I observed, as related in my introduction page, what I believe to be a fleet of UFOs. I came to ATS fully believing in UFOs and extraterrestrials. After approximately a year of reading and seeing hoaxes, child bickering, explanations of swamp gas, car lights,CGI, lying, and numerous other explanations I have become more skeptical then I ever thought I could be.
