I can't decide which type of aliens to believe in: the kind that taught our ancestors how to move and cut stones with their minds in remote antiquity, or the kind that really needs to know what is up our butts.

That lady at the end of part 1 telling about how you know you've been in contact with extra terrestrial beings is creepy as hell.

And "I can move a few things with my mind every now and then, but I need to practice." pfft that made me laugh, and 60$ an hour!?!?! I'd like that situation too!

Those people are just full of bull....,

sorry if I offended anyone by pointing out obvious things that I thought were hilarious.

Is there a coincidence that all of the participants in the support group is on psychofarmaca?

Do aliens exist? Maybe. Probably even.

Do I have any evidence to support this?






nope.

The black lady has to be the funniest. She thinks she`s married to this reptilian and has 2 kids. <----Thats sad. Even the black twin, she was like "The aliens are black" <----WTF. All these guys are nuts, and its sad that some people exploit them and make money over sessions that do nothing but brainwash them. All these conventions are full of ...., you can just see by the .... they sell. Shells, small stones and common crystals, so-on. I read this today:

I've seen two UFO's along the New Jersey coast (which is a hot spot) with other witnesses. These sitings were at least a decade apart and both were similar although the second instance seemed closer than the first. Were they alien? I couldn't tell you, but I can tell you that these objects moved like no publicly known air craft. Speeds and maneuvers like you wouldn't believe.

An awesome read is Communion by Whitley Strieber. Whether you believe in aliens or not, this book was amazing.

Man, it's great to have another true believer here on the board. Somehow you've managed to fly under my radar for too long.

If you don't care enough to research your own question, why should anyone else care more?

Didn't you get the memo? We're all 100% positive that UFO's are of this world, because we're all geniuses. Duh.

See, though, that's the wrong question. It's not their existence that's the issue, it's the likelihood that an alien race sufficiently advanced enough to travel here in the first place would abduct a few people at random, completely in secret, just because they could. Then they never make a mistake or get caught.

Yeah, right.

I have a problem accepting that an alien race advanced enough to travel at speeds well over light speed has to abduct people to make test on them. Our own scientists can grow tissue in laboratories, why can't this race do it?

I don't think that anybody traveling here would use high speed thrust to do it, I would have to figure that they'd use anti-gravity or something. That's beside the point.

If they did get here and did abduct people, I think they'd be intelligent enough to not get caught. However, I don't see the point in abductions and therefore have no reason to subscribe to the idea.. Unless there's something fascinating/unique about our race that's worth studying.

But then you would just have to get some DNA, and you could just grow it in a lab, that would spare you the travel.

That's probable, unless that for some reason doesn't work for their purposes. Or they're just really gay for actual earthlings.

The probability of alien life is ....ing astronomical. Intelligent life? Well, that's very possible too. I, too, don't see the point in abductions. If they're so advanced that they can get here from millions, possibly billions, of light-years away, then I think it's pretty safe to say that they wouldn't even need to get very close to us to make a complete analysis of our planet and its species.

If Adam is right, however, and they're gay for human beings... We're ....ed .

On a slightly different note, though: I might've been about 10 years old when this happened. On holidays, my family and I traveled to the capital to see my grandparents and cousins. We were at my grandfather's beach house, which is on the side of a hill, and has an incredible view of the ocean. The airport is near that place, too, and you can see the route that all planes follow to land and take off.

I was sitting inside, while my grandfather, my uncle, and two of my cousins were sitting on the yard outside, at night, staring into the ocean while chatting. Suddenly, they started calling us who were inside. We arrived too late though, but they did tell us that they saw some sort of strange object moving in strange ways, and following a route that regular planes follow in that area. After it did some strange maneuvers, it flew really fast right on top of them and they never saw it again. My grandfather estimated that it might've been slightly bigger than a family car, although he said he wasn't sure; didn't take a good look at it.

I strongly believe that the Universe is entirely too large for us to be the only life forms.

That said, the vastness of the Universe also leads me to believe strongly that the chances of any non-Earth life form crossing paths with an Earth life form are slim-to-none.

THAT said, I'd sure be super-mega-uber-excited if we did find incontrovertible proof of their existence and subsequent interaction with us.

Maybe it's not that aliens traveled light years to get to us, but rather they've been here with us all along?

Another possibility is the idea of multiple dimensions so instead of traveling from another planet, they're actually just switching from one dimension to another.
