hm i will try to give a small overview about the things that made me "hooked" to this subject. there were some encounters that made me think a lot.
for me the best example, in the last 20 years, are the belgian ufo sightings. i was on a short trip in belgium during these events, and i can still
remember the enthusiasm in the population, because these sightings were not made by a few people in the fields, but by several thousands of citizens
and a lot of military or police personel. unfortunatly we were always to late to witness the crafts with our own eyes. another good thing in the
belgian sightings was the cooperation between civilian researchers and the military. of course i know that a lot of people believe that most flying
triangles are man made (the alleged tr3b or what they call it..) but i doubt it for very easy and logic reasons.
i really can't imagine that a top-secret highly advanced flying object is testet over little belgium. for what reason should any gouvernment or who
ever do this, risk a loss of one of these crafts over the populated sides of belgium? that makes absolutly no sense for me, especially if you think
about the areas where these objects where seen, and the way they moved ( populated areas, no attempt to hide anything, it was like a good show to
every witness). btw. i found a nice paper on the virtuallystrange page, comparing different theories about the flying triangles, and their propulsion
systems, the parts i have already read where definitly worth the time
get it here:
ok enough of the triangles..other interesting sightings where, in my opinion, the "classic" ones, ufo waves over several countries in the 1950-1960
times, and the reaction or better said, the official statements. officialy ufo's where more or less all stupid hoaxes, birds, temperature inversions
(the washington dc wave) etc. , but we know today that internally the whole matter was considered of extreme importance, look it up in the smith memo
(should be found on majesticdocuments.com ). this paper says clearly, that ufo's exist, and are researched by scientist in the united states. althoug
it gives almost no details, this statement is worth a lot if you consider that its a real paper, not a "we dont know if it's real mj12 paper". and
if you think about the political situation in these days, its absolutly understandable why the whole ufo subject was given a higher security status
than for example the hydrogen bombs ( again smith memo ). just imagine, the begin of the cold war and nuclear armament on both sides, you are
(hypothetical) responsible for the security of the united states airspace. would you ignore hundrets of violations of your airspace by unkown,
absolutly superior crafts? no of course not because it's your job to investigate this stuff.
and there are other official studies, like the french cometa report, which comes to one basic conlusion. there are lots of sightings, most can be
explained, but there remains a small percentage which is absolutly unexplainable with conventional aproaches.
but in the end what makes me believe or think that these were possible extra-terristial crafts..? logical speculation
i simple can't imagine that all these crafts, that were seen, photographed etc. in the last say 75 years are all man made crafts. back at school we
learned in biology courses, that the basic substances (missing the right word here..you know what i mean ) that are necessary for the begin of
primitive life, can form "on it's own" if the circumstances and "ingedients" are choosen like they were on the early earth. just a bit energy and
whops we have the basic "founding stones" of life. together with the size of our known universe, the number of stars and the recently found extra
solar planets make it very hard for me to believe, that the only planet that is suitable for life in a more complex form is mother earth. that would
be a very arrogant asumption in my opinion, and all these "arrogant" or human/earth-centered worldviews have been proven wrong in our history.
of course i can't say: these are definitly alien crafts, unless we have a hard, undicussable scientific proof, but...hell where do they come from?
puhh finished..and sry for my bad english...
