You don't need disclosure & you don't need belief. You don't need worthless and unreliable "witness" testimony. You don't need Youtube videos or UFO books and documentaries. You don't need conmen & clowns claiming to channel aliens from zeta reticuli. What you need is actual evidence supporting alien visitations to earth. Evidence that can pass the scientific process and not crumble under scrutiny. That's all you need. Anything less than that, is simply hearsay or stories. Thus far, that proof eludes us. Its conceivable that given the immensity of the universe life on other planets is likely, but an alien presence on earth has never been proven. Ever.

Who need disclosure really?? We know what we know. Either that or millions of abductees are completely nuts which I highly
doubt. Dwight made the deal .
With the Canadian Minister coming out (no, not THAT way), could we finally be on the brink of disclosure? Could more officials come out with their knowledge? That would be something for sure. What do you think would really happen? How would we handle this? I know all the Geeks would finally be able to say "I told you so..."
I'm unimpressed by that guy. All I've heard him do is repeat what he's read in books! He even admits he got his info from books.
There's a purpose to his "coming out" and its got nothing to do with disclosure.

For me, government disclosure wouldn't do it for me, wouldn't prove much of anything either way, just like them saying aliens don't exist doesn't prove anything to me. For me, what WOULD prove it would be enough scientists and reputable researchers without preconceived notions of what they might find came to a conclusion after years of research and published a scientific paper...
Science and most laypeople with even a moderate education believe that aliens almost certainly "exist". The question is: Are they visiting the earth".
Granted, there is no hard evidence that intelligent aliens exist elsewhere in the universe, but the circumstantial evidence (the size of the universe and what we know about extremophile life on Earth) makes it likely. However, many people (including myself) feel that the evidence for alien visitation of Earth is not as good.
But you you be very hard pressed to find a scientist who thinks that humans are the only intelligent life in the vastness of the universe.
A number of scientifically trained persons have considered the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis for certain unidentified flying objects, and openly endorsed it. Among these:
Dr. Herman Oberth, Physiscist, Rocketry Engineer
Eugene Cernan , Aeronautical Engineer
Dr. James E. McDonald, Physiscist
Dr. Maurice Biot, Aeronautical Engineer
James Mc Campbell, Physicist
Dr. Walther Reidel, Rocketry Engineer
The evidence is the evidence, and we have all seen it. One expert may conclude one thing from that evidence, and another expert may conclude something else from that evidence, but the fact that the people making the conclusions are experts does NOT add to the evidence.
