Surveying is a good idea and we don't do enough of it here at ATS. However, the survey suffers from the same "tunnel visioned" approach to UFO
sightings by classifying them as one of only three choices: 1) alien, 2) non-alien terrestrial defense technologies, or 3) hoaxes. The latter is not
really an option since the survey is clearly fishing for one of the other two choices with leanings towards "alien".
Here are some simple facts:
1) Hoaxes exist.
2) People frequently mistake or incorrectly label: a) natural phenomena, b) hoaxes, or c) man-made technologies for "alien visitors".
3) Western society and particularily US society has allowed Hollywood and the publishing industry to fuel mental speculation and belief in the thought
that aliens do exist and are frequent visitors. Opportunits jump on that band wagon to make money off of the UFO believing, alien supporting
4) Speculation that aliens really exist is also fueled by our growing reliance on advanced man-made technologies.
5) No one has ever produced a valid and unbiased solidly designed and academic oriented research study linking all of the paranormal phenomena we
experience (including UFO alien visitors) into one large examination of the truly "unexplained". If we did evidence would mount that there are
valid "unexplained phenomena" that actually have linked characteristics that transend the entire scope of the unexplained but are scientifically
present and real (like the fact that magnetic fields fluctuate in both so-called alien encounters and ghost encounters).
6) The UFO community has defaulted to the belief in aliens because they cannot accept any other reality and have no other explanation on hand for lack
of a more robust scientifically oriented exploration of the truely unexplained.
7) Known science has repeatedly shown that alien travel from one dimension or from one star system to another, including the flight patterns of some
(but not all) so-called "alien UFO's" defy known physics and would kill any living thing no matter what it was in the process.
I have worked in the US Federal Government at high levels. I can tell you a portion of the unexplained sightings that are not hoaxes and which are
not incorrectly identified natural phenomena are mis-identified sightings of man-made technologies, both defense oriented and non-defense oriented.
Some of what people see are in fact advanced weapons technology. For example, while anti-gravity technology doesn't fully exist, "gravity assist"
technology that aids in lift does exist and is and has been experimented with for some time now. This is public knowledge and even science and
technology magazines report this from time to time.
In my experience, what the government is hiding is not the fact that they know aliens exist. Instead, what they are hiding is the fact that they are
aware that a percentage of so called "alien encounters" are in fact a mystery even to them and that they cannot explain it or defend against it.
They don't want you to know that they can not defend you from the unknown that actually appears in unexplained phenomena. The cover up is that they
want you to believe in aliens because its better than telling you that they cannot explain what "those intelligent things" really are or where they
come from. The so called "cover up" is also useful in hiding defense weapons testing of techologies they don't want other nations to have access
to (including partner nations). To be honest, they don't do much to fuel it because the alien believing UFO community believes it anyway without
Are we being "visited" - yes. By what? No one (even the government) knows for sure. How often? Sometimes, but not everywhere all at once and not
as much as we think we experience. What we have is not so much "visitations" by unknown intelligence. Rather, we have an intelligent presence in
our midst that happens to co-habitate with us and that has been present since the dawn of time. They are indiginous but unexplainable in the full
That's actually more scary than aliens invading as Hollywood would portray. That's why the government doesn't explain it or disclose it. Imagine
if the governments of the world were to announce that aliens do not exist, and the fact that we believe they do is in fact a mis-classification of a
real phenomena which is even more unexplainable and defys our collective abilities to shape, influence, interact consitently, or defend against what
is an unknown indiginous intelligence that escapes our grasp and comprehension. Just like us, they don't know how to explain it so they don't.
