And in other news, we seem to be a nation of retards.

That's a shame because, as I understand, it's no fun being an illegal alien.

They must have heard Commander Chris Hadfield singing some David Bowie. (Link because it's worth watching again)

Are you kidding? They are just ramping up here in NC. I'm the one considering leaving.

Damn. I need to get out and take a few pictures of street lights...

Have the new military jets ordered by Harper been delivered yet? If so, the large increase in military aircraft flying around could account for some of the sightings.

There's being skeptical, then there's what you guys always do in these threads: shoving your head up your ass so you don't have to think.

Seriously people, you don't have to believe in Reptilian Illuminati to enjoy the idea that maybe we are being visited. Try having some fun conversation about the idea rather than yelling "streelight!" at everyone who says they saw something.

That's exactly what an alien would want me to do.

Shoal Harbour, N.L. - Four people saw a disc-shaped, glowing orange object flying west to east across the sky, then stop suddenly in mid-flight. After about 10 seconds, it resumed its flight and went out of sight.

There were record numbers of UFOs reported in every province last year except for Saskatchewan and P.E.I.

Aw man! Hey, aliens, whatcha got against SK? What, something's better over in Manitoba? What've they got that we don't got?

You don't understand. A rational person believes there is no God or gods, no angels, no aliens, no other dimensions, no alternate universes. There has never been any other civilisations on Earth before our current ones. There is absolutely nothing out of the ordinary ever, we are all alone in the universe, and when we die our consciousness blinks out of existence. Truly clever people already know everything there is to know about existence.

Canada already has more illegal aliens that it can handle. And just like America, England, et al, it will go down the tubes because of them...

"Since we don't have the proof or evidence to suggest that aliens are behind the UFO phenomenon, what exactly is driving the UFO phenomenon? Why do people report seeing UFOs?"

People want their names in the paper. They want to be noticed. Doesn't matter if they look stupid.

Maybe since the arctic circle is melting, all the ship that have been trapped under the ice can finally escape.

There simply isn't any way to traverse the distances between stars with the short lifespans we have or the technology that's physically possible. They have the same atoms and forces we do. They can't get here, and we can't get there. The most reasonable explanation for UFOs is something between aircraft and mental illness.

Sorry.

Sort of like how you know everything there is to know about clever people.

It's the same atoms and same forces from one end of the universe to the other. Life is probably everywhere on the large scale. They'll learn the same things we did, and have access to the same materials and energy sources we do.

We can't get there, and they can't get here.

What is so difficult to grasp about this?

People 100 years ago would have laughed at you if you claimed machines weighing hundreds of tons could fly. To them the science showed the only way to fly was how birds or insects used wings to displace their weight, and it would be impossible to displace that much weight. Then we discovered some new tricks. We're still a long way from having everything figured out, but every generation is always full of people who think they do. There's all kinds of things we've yet to learn, some of which are bound to change space travel.

As for the sightings, it's always hard to tell. Could just be an indication that people are less afraid of ridicule now so they're reporting them. The idea people claim these sorts of things for attention falls flat when you add in the ridicule factor. It's actually a big deterrent for people to talk about what they saw because of it, which is quite intentional.

J. Frank Parnell: People 100 years ago would have laughed at you if you claimed machines weighing hundreds of tons could fly.


And people a hundred years ago put a home-made engine on a kite and flew. What is the equivalent for space travel? Are there any people using bare-bones technology to go live on Mars and come back? We're not going anywhere.

J. Frank Parnell: To them the science showed the only way to fly was how birds or insects used wings to displace their weight,


Can you back that up? Since, you know, they had hot-air balloons and artillery shells and rockets??

We *know* a lot more than they did during the Wright Brother's era. They didn't even know about the neutron, or how big the universe is, for example.

Their predictions of bigger and better steam locomotives are as laughable as the Space Age predictions are today.

Except for romantic dreamers, who just love that kind of poster art.

People who spout that something can't happen because it defies the current known laws of physics are as bad as religious nuts who spout that it can't happen because Jesus.

People need to get it through their thick skulls that we don't know shiat.

In the grand scheme of things we are equivalent to farking bacterial mold on a goddamn rock. WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE UNIVERSE. Even if you wish we did. Get your head out of your ass and stop pretending you've got it all figured out.  No oneon this planet has it figured out. And every couple of decades something new pops up that shiats on the face of everything we've learned thus far.

For farks sake we have  threedifferent sets of laws for reality. Newtonian, Relativity, and Quantum Theory. All three of which contradict each other at every turn. We only use them because, for now, they are the only thing that even comes close to scraping the surface of the reality of our Universe.

If humans manage to shut the fark up and use their brains long enough to avert destroying themselves then one day we're going to discover things that will make our current theories look like children's scribbles.

The Universe and our reality is weirder than we can currently comprehend. The sooner you set aside your arrogance and accept that the sooner you'll be on the path to actual intelligence.

tl;dr Stop pretending you know everything. We're little more than monkey's that are still banging rocks together.

Indeed. The universe too damned weird for us to bloody figure much of it out at this point. Which is why I just like to watch and see what happens when numerous groups of people say they saw large wedge shaped craft moving through the sky in their area for several minutes rather than just dismiss them as just stoned hicks who saw some blinky lights for a few seconds. We need more data.

Unfortunately, we do. We know A LOT. Otherwise you are saying that we will invent magical technologies with people who don't know shiat???

Esroc: WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE UNIVERSE


That's an ambiguous statement. We know it's huge, for one. We know the Moon is airless, the Sun is big and hot, and there's an awful lot of empty space in between.

You're saying that because we don't know every bug that lives in our walls we don't know where the living room is?

Esroc: We're little more than monkey's that are still banging rocks together.


And pluralizing with apostrophes, it seems. Sorry, seem's.

We don't know where all the bugs are so we declare there are no bugs and continue eating Wheaties with weevils in it.
