    Of course they're real. How do you think we got here?!

    OTOH if they had been developing tech for long enough to be able to travel that far that fast, they might: 1) have used up local natural resources and need to shop around for supplies, 2) have been stealing tech from other places in order to progress that far, and 3) if they came for a look and didn't find much that they needed, why would they get into local politics? or 4) they could be trying to figure out what we have that they can use, and how best to take it with least cost to them in resources, since spending resources to take resources is impractical. Or 5) Given that many humans can't even imagine tech we don't have, maybe we also can't imagine why they would come and not entertain us with TV interviews.

    If there were in fact aliens with the level of tech required to travel interstellar distances, why do you think they'd care about us at all? When you run into a hill of ants in your backyard, do you try to teach them anything? If they're out there, we're probably more like some lab experiment like an ant farm. That's why I'm not that worried about being conquered - more likely, being "disinfected" out of existence.

    Lol! You speak with a tone of authority . . . but I'd bet you don't have a clue as to what aliens would
    do if they made it to our location. o_O

    What, exactly, is the problem? Are there flying objects that cannot readily be identified? Obviously!

    Perhaps these UFOs are just human (or whatever the next evolution of homo sapiens is) time travellers from the future coming back in their time machines and messing with us?

    I don't think "UFOs" exist, at least not in the sense of space ships or dimensional ships.

    The reason I don't believe it is I have never seen any video or photo that convinced me, and I have never seen an alien craft with my own eyes.

    Do I think there is life elsewhere in the Universe? Yes, just not flying around here.

    Said it before...there's no way we're the only life form out there.

    Oh hell I called alienuber in 1967 like ten times and the slackers still haven't come.

    When they get here I got a thing or two to say to them!

    I'm thinking that the humans who keep freaking out waving torches and pitchforks while screaming Woo are really the undesirables from far away galaxies dropped off monthly.

    Figger an advanced civilization might want to send their less advanced spawn elsewhere, and we end up getting their dregs...

    Illegal aliens arriving would explain why the ships don't stop in at the White House for a meet & greet.

    Talk about timing... I can't believe this came out today... Read the whole article. Navy has just published procedures for pilots to handle the things I referred to earlier. They're admitting they're real and no one knows what the heck they are. Again, no talk of aliens, just scary tech that is apparently way more common than I thought.

    This is the article I linked to/pasted in my OP lst night to start the thread. But eerie, yes! Yet some conflict of interest/self-promotion may be part of it too. Check out the CNN clip I linked in a later post.

    Hey, sorry man! I got the WaPo article in my feed today, and thought that the date at the top of the article was the publish, not the current, date. Will check out the CNN clip.

    No probs, of course! In fact, on the planet I'm from, we say, "To err is human, to forgive...humans is tasty!"

    It was lot more interesting and romantic when I was young and I could still imagine the sightings etc were some other worldly visitors, but I agree with people who say, if they're around, why would they behave like every UFO movie of sightings? I think either they'd land or you'd never see them. I don't think they'd come light years to our tiny speck to dik around.

    Also, we DO remember the recent Bettie Page thread, don't we?

    If you can't cross the universe to get a smile from Bettie, what the hell good is all that fabric of time crap, anyway?

    Am I RIGHT, people?
