Oh... now this I LOVE !
This thread here is entitled "How Humanity on this planet should discuss Aliens" and I am all for a proper, codified method of discussion. I
thought we might be talking about ensuring valid scientific research has pride of place over unfounded speculation, making it possible for serious
scientists to start working on these things WITH us, rather than leaving the entire subject at the back of the broom cupboard, because of the damage
that being involved with the indigo children and the abductees would do to people who actually have a reputation worth a damn.
BUT OOOOH NO!
Instead this thread seems to be another which advocates a position which roughly equates to...
" Lets just accept things that we cannot prove, as a given, so that the discussion can continue!".
That is RIDICULOUS! The reality of this situation is this. We have MORE than enough discussion on these matters, huge amounts, some of them run for
page after page, after page. What we do not have nearly enough of, is properly in depth discussion, between people who do NOT have a pseudo religious
belief in aliens, on the subject (and in case you are wondering, by that I mean, people who believe, but have no basis for that belief other than
Now, I am not a skeptic. I believe that the case for Alien existence is pretty good, because it is a mathematical improbability that we are alone in
the universe, and the probability of there being other life in the universe than our own, increases every time one of our deep space telescopes picks
up a likely looking star system, which has planetary bodies in orbit of it. The question of their existence in my view, is settled by the numbers, and
we have only to lay eyes on them to confirm it utterly.
However, what I am most concerned with, is that people seem to think that they can prove any of the contact stories, landing stories, abduction
reports, sightings, and supposed telepathic contacts, without resorting to good old fashioned science. We MUST rely on science, in this day and age in
more than any other, because it is the only language spoken by at least a number of people, representative of every race, creed, colour and religion,
and therefore is the only medium through which proof might be accepted by a significant majority of people across the planet.
