I'm curious now, having looked at a bunch of UFO videos on here that either show no discernible thing in the sky, birds, Venus, or a light...When you
say "I saw a UFO," do you mean these things or do you mean a craft of unknown origin?
I find it odd that people who see unexplained-but-perhaps-not-unexplainable lights in the sky go on to build or believe in giant, imaginative stories
around what these things represent. Galactic federations, hostile takeovers, peaceful space brothers--you know the stories. It would make more sense
to me if what you actually saw was a craft and not just some light. This tells me that what's important to most people, really, is believing in
something (and belonging to a community of like minds). In no small part the drive behind belief in this stuff is BELIEF IN THIS STUFF.
I, for one, have seen mysterious lights in the sky. If I'd only seen that I wouldn't jump to any conclusion or erect a mythology around them or
adopt one. But I've also seen a craft--very much a structured piece of technology that isn't ours. So I don't get to be a debunker in life but I
also don't want to force a meaning on that or adopt someone else's. However, I can see why someone would do that if they'd seen a structured craft.
That makes sense to me whether I do it or not--What doesn't make sense to me is just seeing a light and then inventing or adopting a story for it.
All of that rambling is to ask (because I'm not seeing it represented with people's home videos here): How many of you have actually witnessed an
unexplained structured craft? And if you have, do you remain open to what it is or have you drawn any conclusions?
