This wishy-washy answer will probably get me flamed and I probably have it coming, hehehe…
I don’t know. There is simply no substantive evidence to support the claim that the government – ANY government, has a recovered extraterrestrial
craft. THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEY DON’T, but given the fact that people love to talk, and quite frankly, are not always very bright, I think the
longer we go without confirmation of this claim, the less likely it is to be true.
The universe is vast, and I agree that it is very likely to be replete with life, intelligent and otherwise, but that vastness also may make
interaction between these various life forms impractical if not logistically impossible. That being said, I think it is likely if we survive as a
species that someday we will find evidence of intelligent life, perhaps even making contact.
I am intrigued by the mythology of UFO phenomenon, particularly the 1880’s Texas “crash”, the Battle of Los Angeles in 1941, Roswell of course,
Rendlesham Forest, the incident outside of Houston in the early 80’s where the “victims” were left with radiation burns, and a couple accounts
by commercial airline pilots in recent times.
However, there are 7 billion people on this planet now, almost every single one of them with some form of photographic device, we've had very capable
still and video cameras for decades that continue to improve exponentially, and still, compelling UFO images are very hard to come by.
Blurry blobs of light in the sky are never going to convince me of anything.
I approach things from the scientific model. I need independently corroborated evidence.
And now here’s where it gets wish-washy, lol…
My gut tells me that UFO’s are real. I do believe there is something more than wishful thinking or mistaken identification to the phenomenon.
However, I have been burned on this before…
When I was in my early 20’s my then-wife and I were driving through the Mohave Desert when a strange-looking craft of some kind paralleled our
course for some miles. It was evening, but not yet completely dark. We could see the outline of the craft, and a single point of brilliant white
illumination seeming to come from underneath it somewhere. It appeared saucer-like, but more boxy, for lack of a better term. It was black as coal.
At some point it just peeled off at a high rate of speed and vanished.
We were convinced that it was a UFO, and more than a little freaked out to be honest. We were in the middle of nowhere and there was almost no
traffic at the time. We excitedly discussed the possibility that we had just seen an alien space craft – as far as we were concerned there was
nothing else this strange vehicle could have been.
For months we told friends, relatives, anyone who would listen that we had seen a bona fide UFO.
Then pictures of the F-117 stealth fighter were released to the media.
That turned out to be our UFO.
Ever since then, I have been a little hesitant to jump into the UFO pool with both feet.
