Default UFOs and Visitors to Planet Earth

So, who believes we are being visited (or have been visted) by beings from another planet?

Default Hawking: Unintelligent life is likely on other planets

Hey Eagle, this might answer your question.

Hawking: Unintelligent life is likely on other planets .....

I certainly do. Considering the way I turned out, my parents must of been aliens.

"I occasionally think how quickly our differences, worldwide, would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world" - Ronald Ray Gun. Do you think he knew something we didn't?

I think we have been, are being, and will be visited. I just wish I knew what "they" were waiting for.

Ronald Reagan: elected in 1980.
SHADO: established in 1980.
Coincidence....?

In answer to the question: I've read a lot about the subject, having been interested in Ufology for a long time - and have yet to be convinced that we are being visited.

No, I don't believe we're being visited.
That does not mean I don't believe life exists elsewhere.
But it isn't what The X Files would have us believe. (Everything therein was still so human-centric. Come on! )
Oh, and why is it some people believe we didn't go to the moon in the late 1960's & early 1970's (or in some cases, don't even realise that there were several moon missions), yet think that 'the Government' is in collusion with aliens from distant solar systems? Doesn't make the slightest bit of sense. Unless you factor in the idea that those people are so down on themselves, and by extension down on humanity as a whole, that they choose not to believe what we're capable of. They have no problem ascribing near demi-godlike powers to some made-up race of otherworldly visitors, though.
Pathetic.

Didn't this get discussed in another thread last year? I know I voiced my opinions then...

I think we talked about travelling faster than light being a tad difficult and that it was a tad too far to travel, even from our closest neighbour. Time travel was also poo pooed, but I still wonder if the visitors aren't just us from the future.

There's a starman waiting in the sky. He liked to come and meet us, but he thinks he'd blow our minds.

If space is trully infinite, then it makes no sense that there would be only ONE planet with life on it. Drake equation, anyone?

I read somewhere that the universe is multidimensional (time being one of those dimensions). So if we were or are being visited, I would suspect that they have the capability to fold space or something similar to get here quickly and in small ships. Space origami!

Life on other planets~ Assuredly. Intelligent life on other planets~ Probable. Visited here~ No proof I've seen yet.

Ah, yes, the time travel thing... now I remember, 'cause I mentioned a plot outline for a story I never finished writing about that idea.

Ditto.

Although I reserve the right to change my mind if they ever discover a large black monolith anywhere.

Imagine that just today, in some remote and unexplored part of Earth, a native tribe, with no previous contact with "civilization" or another humans, is secretely discovered.

Do you think that a sensible political power in charge (maybe they exist, although I tend to believe in UFOS easier) would allow to openly contact them?

Translate this to galactic scale, being us the primitive isolated tribe.

About the technical ways to arrive here... remember, in the early 50's there were respected scientifics who declared IMPOSIBLE for man to travel to space. The same a few years before about TV, or the tank being rejected at the beginning of WWI because declared useless by British military.

Maybe Einstein was right (I believe so), but maybe some alien Einstein discoverd how to cheat the speed of light.

Last century no one would believe that you could travel across the globe in less than a day. Remember that.

Or maybe there are beings of several thousand years of lifespan (natural or artificial), or maybe parked in the Saturn orbit a World-colony-spaceship is sending scout ships for a few centuries across the Solar system...

Was on the front page of our SA news paper. There are still a number of tribes that have had no contact with the outside world .... except of course for the helicopters flying over and taking pictures of them and generally invading their world and stuff.

Cue the Vangelis piano music...


Chariots of the Gods, I believe is what was meant. Or to quote Hippy from The Abyss, "Hot rods of the gods!"
