There are things that I believe through faith, and things which I believe because I have seen proof which makes self evident, the truth of the matter.
My faith in God, I require no evidence to bolster. Faith, by definition, requires no physical evidence. In the case of my Christian beliefs, the very
idea of proving the existence of God is, for me, a dirty topic, shady in the extreme. I am satisfied that when my physical flesh dies, I will enter
the afterlife, either in heaven or in hell dependent on how closely I follow the commandments, and on my ability to honestly repent for my
However, I believe that gravity is a force which acts on me, and the matter of which I am made, and the planet we stand upon, and the star that this
planet orbits, and all the other planets, and all the stars and the galaxy we are a part of, and all the stuff in the universe. I believe that there
are several fundamental forces acting on everything of which the universe is made.
However, these are not matters of faith, but things I believe because I have seen the evidence for them with my own eyes, looked at the data recorded
by scientists and understood it well enough to confirm for myself that their conclusions are of enough merit that they represent a truth. So in a more
direct answer to your question, no. No, I do not believe that this alleged species exists, or indeed that any human being on this planet could
actually claim truthfully, that they could name a species of alien life form, or give details of where in the universe they are from, their culture,
their politics, their technology, or any other in depth information.
I am willing to accept that it is possible that people on this planet have seen unidentified objects, the origins of which are yet to be discovered,
but I believe that it is important to be rigorous in all matters pertaining to physical truth. A thing either does, or does not exist. If it does,
then it is the business of science to examine, not faith.
Also... the website that we have been linked to here, is run by a group of people who are incapable of accepting the merest restriction placed upon
them by empiricism. Sources are important, because they can say an awful lot about the article, and frankly speaking, nothing good is being said here,
nothing at all that would make me think to myself, that it would be a good idea to take anything taken up by its members and staff, at face value.
Physical findings, that can be examined by repeated experimentation are the only sort of evidence that makes me believe anything, apart from in
matters of faith.
I am capable of having faith, but faith is for God. For everything else, science is my guide.
