And they'll reach exactly the same conclusions as every one before them: it's a definitely possible maybe

/but if we get more money we can keep this up indefinitely

I'm not saying it's aliens, but I am saying that I'm not going to even take the time to link the pic.

Some of the smartest people I know also happen to be some of the most gullible people I know.

But if you identify a UFO, it's not a UFO anymore. And then you lose the game.

Wasn't James Randi consistently able to fool a lot of parapsychology researchers? A lo of scientists aren't used to nature actively trying to fool them when designing experiments.

Bigfoot?  Sorry, I'm not on the team.  Must be a relative.
 
2014-04-18 02:26:04 PM  
What? No Empath among the crew?  How will we know what the aliens are feeling when we find them?

Yes, but the more important question is why were they trying to do science in the loo?

Are they all the same person? If so, I smell a zany comedy in the works.
 
2014-04-18 02:35:39 PM  
I fully belive that UFOs exist.

Alliens in flying saucers? Maybe not so much

Alien life? Sure.  We can't be the only bacteria out here.
 
2014-04-18 02:41:29 PM  
1. UFO sighting must have occurred less than a year ago
2. Must have multiple witnesses
3. Must be a daytime sighting
4. Must have photo, video, or other physical proof
5. Sighting did not occur near a military installation or defence contractor installation


Ya forgot sober.
 
2014-04-18 02:42:49 PM  
That final member of the list is the most important.

If you guys are interested in what's non-bullshiat about Space, NASA TV and Space X are currently counting down to the launch of Falcon-9 Mission CRS-3. 40 Minutes to launch and counting down.

Trying to prove aliens are visiting the earth is the biggest waste of time.  If there are aliens here and want to be known, there is nothing we could do to stop them from showing themselves.  So if they are here, they obviously want to remain hidden, and nothing anyone can do will prove they are real until the aliens themselves decide to say howdy.  Basically, the aliens hold all the cards.

/ghost hunting on the other hand...

Aliens read Fark, they have no interest in coming here.

Some people just really need something to believe in. There may not be a God to save them, but an alien race with God-like technology is the next best thing.

https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/appeal-to-authority

As an engineer who occasionally works with NASA, I can assure you, there are quacks in every field and walk of life.  They may be perfectly rational within their field of expertise, and a few fries short of a happy meal everywhere else.  If you want to know about the Isp of a particular flavor of rocket engine, go talk to that "NASA rocket propulsion engineer".  But I haven't seen any UFO claims where that comes into play.  In fact, if the aliens are here, they almost certainly didn't get here with rocket engines as we know them.

Heh ... just read the article

"Aerial Phenomenon Investigations is run by founder and director Antonio Paris, a former US Army Counterintelligence Officer and Department of Defense Counterintelligence Special Agent"

They're running with appeal to authority, and leading with that??  There goes whatever credibility they might have had - if you think "military intelligence" is the ultimate oxymoron, you haven't met the counterintel guys.

Old Man Winter: So, NASA rocket propulsion engineer not exactly rocket scientist?


He was the guy responsible for the O-Rings on the SRBs prior to the Columbia launch. After that, he got demoted to space shuttle ice watcher and foam inspector.

To be fair, their duty is to counter intelligence.

Listen dweebheads .. UFOs do not exist! And the federal government has massive reams of Above Top Secret Files to prove it ..

 4. Must have photo, video, or other physical proof

????????????????????????

How can anyone in the 21st century think a photo or video can be proof of anything?


HOW????????????

Oh you!  (that's directed to all of humanity).

Of course we are not the only life "out there."  Unless you're a religious fundamentalist nut or someone who lacks sixth grade science, you wouldn't be able to say that with a straight face.

I have a degree in physics, I got it because back when I was a teenager, I was interested in the possibility of extraterrestrial life.  When I was 16 years old, I was donating money to CUFOS.

My minor was Astrophysics and I can tell you, with a straight face, that it's a much further shot to suggest that other life forms don't exist.  We just don't interact with them right now.  In a mainstream way.  Give it time :)

Depends on the file. A RAW-format image file is unlikely to have been manipulated. A simple JPEG is pretty suspect, though.

There are a couple good UFO stories.
The latest was at Chicago Airport around 2006 and the other was an airliner over Alaska which had radar contact from the air and from ground control.
Probably the best was in England near an Air force base where the craft was hovering in the forest and personal actually touched it. Not sure if sober.

Well, the teachers and reporters are understandable.. they probably get paid more and the reporters don't have to learn how to block punches.
 
2014-04-19 09:29:24 AM  
it's all fun and games until you see one for yourself.

then you realize that the whole world is being had for military gains that lead to nothing but wars for greed, and the continuation of the rat race.

yeah...fun and games.
