2012 came ... and went ... and nothing happened; absolutely nothing of even the slightest remarkable-ness regarding UFOs, Alien disclosure ...
It's been how many decades now that 'modern' UFO/Aliens belief has occupied the collective unconscious, and out of all these how many decades have we
once had disclosure? No.
Yet, so many of you are still so gullible, so eager to believe, despite nothing, absolutely nothing of any remark ever happening.
There was a report (I forget by what think-tank, the name escapes me) that basically states alien contact and even knowing about alien life could
change the course of Humanity dramatically, cause panic, re-evaluations of religion or even a possible collapse of religion, and subsequently
This report gave me a pretty good idea that as a believing skeptic it would not be in the best interest of any government to quickly release any
information to the general public. About either the existence of any alien life or actual Extra-terrestrials. Especially with a large portion of
government (USA at least) being represented by people who believe the earth is less then 10,000 years old
Even large percent Democrats are young earthers...
It took hundreds of years for people to believe the world was round, and not the center of the solar system, but before that you could be imprisoned
or worse burned as a heretic! I see the same scenario with Zealots or paranoid Xenophobes!
Now eventually if there was life found you would have a group of people politicians, scientists (military, clergy?) who know. They would possibly be
studying or trying to understand it so as to ease the population or assure them there is no worry. There would (And I believe have been) leaks, so
there would be denial. There would also be reasons to keep it covered up because there is NOTHING they could do about and show the public just how
infective our military is at protecting it's people. But to out-an-out announcement is ridiculous and fool-hardy and will never happen!
Once people were properly conditioned through media movies/Television/Pop culture to accept extra-terrestrial life there would be a tipping point
where that report would be moot. The mass of the general population would not panic and although there maybe some fringe incidents, mostly society
would have adjusted to this new dynamic. How long would this take? Decades? How would we determine when disclosure would occur?
Every year a poll is taken on the belief of extra-terrestrials and each year that number increases. The Vatican makes statements that we not be alone
and that is ok because we can redeem aliens. And pop culture is a glut of Aliens for more than a 1/2 century now. At some time that tipping point will
be reached. But it is still baby steps...
Out of an entire universe filled with BILLIONS of Galaxies that hold BILLIONS of Stars and we are now finding that each star has at least a Planet. It
has become so common that most likely EVERY star has a planet! And given our intelligence has given us radio communication and space travel in only
the last 150 years...
It is extremely Naive
to think we are alone and you would have to be extremely gullible to believe that this disclosure is not happening right
