You would think after all the space flights, shuttle expeditions, ISS flying around, that they would have seen loads of ships & craft entering our
atmosphere if the sightings are to be believed.
At some point, even under strict orders to the contrary, I would think someone somewhere would be able to provide the actual proof needed,
particularly in light of the alleged number of space programs in operation and the sheer unlikelihood of nothing whatsoever being seen and noted.
And if these wonderful spiritual beings were so benevolent and helpful where would be the harm in full disclosure? Why keep such helping hands secret
if they were only here to assist?

Hi Phyl, it has been an interesting thread, and I do appreciate you raising the questions and the diverse amount of opinions on the subject matter. I
too have tried to offer some suggestions, opinions and information to try and understand the potential of ET visitation.
Some basic general considerations: Mankind has always been an adventurous species and since the beginning of our existence (whenever that was? Homo
Sapiens widely believed to be about 200,000 years ago) we have wanted to "search", "investigate", "develop", "create" and "learn" new things to
continue to improve our position in life. Speech, written language, fire, tools, art, inventions, all the way through tons of inventions such as
planes, trains and automobiles
and of course space ships and a whole slew of weapons and medical breakthroughs. So as a species we continue to
make progress and in the last century, it seems a lot of progress has quickened. Let's not forget that little thing called the computer and iphone.
My point being that we as a species seem to have been making some real progress and continues to increase exponentially each decade, certainly during
our lifetime. So it shouldn't surprise us that we have been able to make technological wonders such as:
The stealth B-2
The F117 stealth fighter

When 30 years ago they were in secret development, but when unsuspecting souls caught a glimpse of the vehicles, the natural inclination was not only
to say they were UFO's (which they were because no one knew of them or had ever seen one) and then make that giant leap that they were Aliens/ET
Technology. We now know that these were developed by humans under the cloak of Black Projects with a lot of money and a lot of hard work.
Our society has always wanted to venture to knew places, to sail to the 'edge' of the earth from the days of Marco Polo, to the invasions of the
Romans, to Christopher Columbus and of course the late Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on Apollo 11 landing on the moon. It's wonderful, it's natural,
it's built into us to want to seek better, greater things. So why would it be so unnatural to think or speculate that the Universe in all its wonder,
holds the potential for new, wonderous things to find, explore, investigate and learn from. Quite natural, and I would suggest essential to our human
Where I am going with this? Hmm, lol, back on topic. I think sometimes we dream and want to believe things of an incredible chances, the stuff that
science-fiction is made of. Sometimes if we try hard enough we turn fiction into reality. But, on the ET question? Not sure we have found
sufficient proof of that. It would be grand, it would be life changing. We could handle it. I just don't think for the logical questions that you have
posed, that we have enough proof, evidence, reason to believe that ET's have been here or are here. Doesn't mean we can't dream, an to continue our
search of the galaxy and the universe........who really knows?
EDIT: My response is not meant to disprove or debunk the ET question. I remain open-minded, and acknowledge that it is understood the at least 5% of
the reports of Unknowns are just that, unknown, unidentifiable, so that leaves room for continued investigation and not to rule anything out. There
remain many possibilies, and I am as curious as the next person. Where do I stand on all of this? Open-minded, skeptical, continue to increase my
knowledge and to respect the opinion of others while remaining true to my own principles of demanding more evidence, proof of things before I
faithfully believe totally.....in I guess anything!! Cheers!
That's all I got for now, Peace!!! ID
