Well, yeah. Everyone knows that the Reptilians are just visitors from a timeline where the KT Extinction asteroid missed and a species of raptors evolved into sentient beings with a several million year head start on us technologically.

Yeah it went so far down. They killed off or disappeared most of the 4 main characters, brought in a bunch of new people as the main characters, and made Earth prime be taken over by aliens. Then the show ends on a cliffhanger that will never be resolved.

Pretty much this. I stopped watching it after it went to the Sci-Fi channel. I did see the series finale and it was horrible.
Earth: Final Conflict was the same way. The first 3 seasons were good and the final couple went bonkers.

EFC is on Amazon Prime now. That show has not aged well.

Linux_Yes: UFO's must come from another universe/parallel world because humans are the farking center of the Universe!!

The general idea is that they are from a parallel reality more or less similar in structure to this one. They're alternate "humans" from an alternate "Earth" and so when they phase into our world they end up on our planet because our worlds are alternate pairs of each other. Could also just be more akin to time travel, but from a multiverse perspective and not actually literally another unique universe. Not trying to say any of this is real, just that it's internally consistent and not just the result of us being particularly special. While there's clearly zero evidence of this being true, it's not all that outlandish an idea really.

i think some people know way more then is publicly known. obviously.

i can't prove space aliens visit earth and have been doing so for millions of years, but if they do i don't see them as any less natural than us.

i'd be more shocked if they did not exist than if they did.   that is a shiat ton of wasted space out there with countless planets and countless suns (stars)

something or someone is out there because pilots, as well as the general population, have been reporting these things since at least the 30's.   i understand there are cave paintings thousands of years old of flying saucer like objects.

if humans are lying all this time they are completely full of shiat and deserve to fade away.  i don't believe its hallucination either.

i'm very suspicious of that claim.

just because humans can't travel vast distances in the universe doesn't mean no one else can.

our tech could be stick and stones compared to other beings in the universe.   our solar system is realtively young compared to other solar systems out there.

they could be millions of years ahead of us.

or they might have left their planet thousands or millions of years ago and just travel around the universe checking things out.  they may not be terrestrial any more.

open your brains.  stop thinking in terms of mankind and broaden the possibilities.

also, whoever said mankind is the final word on the Laws of Physics??

maybe we have a few things wrong...............

if UFO's visit earth or send probes to visit earth, maybe they don't interact or announce themselves because of their

good point.   they may be so far ahead of us morally and techwise that they may view us as the Planet of the Apes.

they might be mildly interested in checking us out, but no interest in interacting with us.

Nocrash: Somehow our species has survived a million years while carrying the genes for this kind of thinking. Why it has been retained is a mystery to me.


Side effect of consciousness and the ability to think abstractly. The brain likes to automatically fill in the blanks when it lacks information. You can fix it with proper education. So it's not really a genetic thing, it's an education thing. The real question is why so many humans find education abhorrent.

Wow, Jack Sarfatti.  He was one of the major crackpots on the Usenet sci.physics newsgroup back in the 1990s.  I think he personally inspired entries in the Crackpot Index.

The problem isn't whether there are other intelligent species out there in the Universe.  There almost certainly are.  And in fact, I'd be willing to bet that there are several within 500 light years of us, maybe even dozens or hundreds.

The difficulty is that interstellar travel is extremely hard.

Hard enough, in fact, that it's unlikely that biological beings would even attempt it.  All of the concepts we have come up with that would get us to other systems and back within a human lifetime require "unobtanium".  They are pure theoretical concepts.

So the idea of them visiting in person is actually akin to the supernatural.

Comet's great for stuff like that. Only place you can find Babylon 5. Who knew a channel dedicated to showing old sci-fi shows and movies would be a good idea? Seems like something someone would have tried by now.

I take issue with this because our knowledge of physics is incomplete. And many of the theoretical models for FTL have been continuously refined and are becoming less and less fantastical. For example the alcubierre drive once needed the total sum of energy that exists in the universe, but has since been refined to only roughly the contained energy of Jupiter. Still insane, but becomes more and more obtainable as our knowledge grows.

On top of this our understanding of gravity is also incomplete. If we figured out how to create and harness gravity then pretty much every thing ever seen in a sci-fi movie becomes possible just from gravity manipulation alone. And there's no reason to believe the mechanism that creates gravity will forever be a mystery. So the assertion that FTL is impossible is suspect and stems solely from human-centric thinking. We don't know how it works so it must not exist.

I'd be more inclined to believe the idea that a species capable of FTL simply wouldn't care about us. That concept at least makes some logical sense. However even that runs into problems such as the fact that we visit and study lesser forms of life all the time. And it would only take one curious alien with a ship to decide to buzz about checking in on us.

At the end of the day the idea of alien visitation isn't anywhere near as farfetched and ridiculous as skeptics like to pretend. I'm all for requiring evidence before committing. But to dismiss it outright is just intellectually dishonest and shuts down any conversation.

Bec its hard for us doesnt mean its hard for them.  It was hard for the settlers to travel west back 150 years ago.  Today we can do it in a few hours.
