internut scholar: Triumph: cman: And kept it a secret for 70 years? Someone would have talked by now.

People HAVE!! And at the National Press Club. Ex-Canadian defense minister, ex-Apollo astronaut, ex-high ranking military, ex-US contractors.

I think the most compelling one to come forward to me was Lieutenant Walter Haut's deathbed confession, left in the form of a sworn affidavit. That seems completely unnecessary unless you really want to get something off your chest.

That and the Travis Walton story. In his case, sure, he could be lying, but 35 some years later, he and all the guys he was with still tell the same story.


I'm not well versed at all, so I really don't know who's most credible, but I did enjoy this clip of the military guy who took credit for coming up with the "swamp gas" thing. The main problem with most the people coming forward is they tend to be like 85 and could be telling old-man-stories.

I don't know if ships from alien civilizations ever came near enough to earth to be detected but I don't think the speed of light means it's impossible. A civilization that is old enough might believe that it's good science to send a robotic probe on long voyage (10 to 100 thousands of years both way) toward solar systems that are likely to have a planet supporting life. I don't believe this kind of technology is beyond our means right now, it's just beyond our will.

cman: I dont understand why some people think there is this grand conspiracy to hide alien life from the public.

It makes no sense whatsoever.

Governments like to use fear to make their people submit to their whims. If aliens existed and posed a threat you bet your ass some politician would use it to push some stupid law through.


Actually, if you've ever read some of Icke's works, the government consists of shape-shifting Reptilians in cahoots with the other power elite like Bildebergers, CFR members, Bohemian Grove members, etc.  So it's part of their job to hide the alien threat because they are the aliens or pawns of the aliens.
And besides, the aliens, in particular, the Reptilians and the Grays, want us ignorant so we don't find out that they're using us as food.  We're the equivalent of tasty cattle to them.  They're running a massive disinformation campaign so anyone who even tells the truth is shot down as a psycho-ceramic crackpot who needs to be sent to a mental hospital.
Bill Clinton is just part of the campaign to hide the truth.  And besides, the real aliens are located in Ducle, New Mexico.  And if you want to see UFOs, you need to go to S4.

Two words, Mr. President.  Plausible deniability.

rustypouch: Smackledorfer: I wouldn't be surprised if aliens existed.

I would be surprised if they were close enough to visit.

I assume, perhaps incorrectly, that extinction odds for a species approach zero at a certain point of technology and science advancement though.

Once you get set up in a second solar system you should be good to go I would think.

This.

With the universe being essentially infinite, I'd be surprised if intelligent life didn't exist somewhere out there.

I'm very doubtful that they're coming to Earth, mutilating cattle and probing hillbillies.


If the universe is infinite (and there's good cause to think it might be) there's a 100% chance there is another you and he is at this very moment being anally probed by a grey alien.  100%.

yukichigai: thamike: this increasingly divided world of ours

I appreciate dramatic flourish in one's soundbites, but this one is getting really tiresome.  First of all it's the opposite of the truth. Secondly, it's completely meaningless.

Look at how well House Republicans get along with that niBONG in the White House and reconsider how "opposite of the truth" the statement is.


Not a big picture kinda guy, are you?

This may be the only thing you've ever said that I agree with.

Triumph: Far Cough: Just saying, but I suspect Buzz Aldrin would like to punch you in the face.  :)

Buzz Aldrin claimed a freaking UFO was following Apollo 11!


We now know it was the vulcans watching to see if we achieved Warp...............
............ the pointy eared bastards went home disappointed and Buzz blames himself............
