Fair enough, i can see what you mean, but what about the radar returns, didn't they show something following the JAL plane? Also by the time that
other United Plane flew by they were no longer reporting seeing it.
It's just hard to fathom how a large cloud and a runway could be so mistaken for the UFO reported.
You've raised perhaps a reasonable doubt though i'll give you that.
Also, in this vast universe, why is it so utterly unbelievable the idea that some, i repeat some UFO sightings might be of extraterrestrial origin?
I don't see what that would be so impossible to fathom, especially now that modern science has not been able to rule out the possibility of a type of
To a photon of light, there is no space between the stars, and it's been shown that non-locality is real and that space and time are not the most
fundamental aspects of reality, the implication being that they could be transcended.
There's also the Fermi Paradox
to consider, whereby expansion could simply involve visitation
and travel to gain knowledge and not necessarily colonization.
Based on this, are the sceptics saying in effect, referring to the Fermi Paradox, that there are no stage three super-advanced technological
civilizations in the universe, as evidenced by the fact that we have NOT been visited or that there is no evidence to support such a contention,
and/or that instantaneous, interstellar travel is absolutely impossible based on Relativistic physics which makes the speed of light the absolute
limitation in terms of interstellar travel?
If so, how can you be so sure of yourself, that such a thing is impossible, even using the Earth itself and our own recent technological advance as an
Then again, extraordinary claims do require extraordinary evidence, i'll give you that much, but it's certainly not outside the realm of conceivable,
if we are not alone in the universe that is which is rather hard to fathom, that we would be. Seems like a strange thing for the sceptics to be
arguing, which amounts to a conclusion either that there are no such advanced civilizations in the universe, or that if there are that they cannot
possibly by any means whatsoever get to here, from there.
Why would they want to? Because of the exceedingly rare occurrence of such worlds, perhaps..? Also putting ourselves in their shoes, isn't it the
ultimate question and curiosity? Seems a logical extension of the desire to explore and discover, if you have the technological capability to do
