The problem with extraterrestrial visitation is the distances involved. There are no doubt countless advanced civilizations out there. We should be glad they are too distant for a visit. If they were advanced enough to get here, we would be seen as primitive. A visit from them would most likely not go well. How did we treat natives of conquered lands?

The under-identified flying objects are the birds - the only living direct descendants of the near extinction of life on Earth that happened when asteroids destroyed the rest of the dinosaurs and 99.9 percent of life on Earth. I have seen them land in Portland by the 10s of thousands beside the Spaghetti Factory- they covered every branch of every tree and all came in to land together, and they would do that every night in Portland, coming together at the end of every evening somewhere in the city. We know they can recognize human faces and use tools and that they mourn their dead. And they are being wiped out, huge population decline over the past 50 years.

R60, China isn’t an adversary and I think no one wants a war, but there’s no denying international relations are tense. I would guess COVID was a lab leak but that they feel resentful about taking responsibility for it because of international encouragement of this type of research. Plus them needing to take financial responsibility for their billions of people even as the factories turn to robotics and the birth rate is one of the lowest in the world. They have a history of losing people to famine by the millions when things went wrong. They aren’t being straightforward about COVID probably because they know how hurt their own people could be if they were. And of course there’s the usual human corruption element on top of that, typical to what you’d see in the USSR - some are more equal than others, et cetera.

There, you have people who feel the need to say everything is about human rights, but human nature being what it is, that isn’t always true. Regarding the origin of COVID, no one including me knows the origin of COVID. But I don’t have a strong belief that the Chinese government is always saying something that I would endorse. I don’t endorse their ban of sissy men or their cover up of the tennis player who was assaulted by a high ranking official. It’s actually encouraging that the scientists there in China keep putting out origin theories that they must know sound absurd to the world - they can’t go against the party line, just like the tennis player had to retract her rape allegation.

I don’t believe they are time travellers since time travel to the past would seem to violate Relativity, but hey who know…

Dark matter and dark energy are believed to comprise something like 90% of the mass of the universe, which means there is a vast unseen universe around us but on that we cannot see nor experience. Perhaps these UAPs are probes sent from the dark matter universe? The problem with that hypothesis is that dark matter by definition does not interact with baryonic (“our”) matter, unless the dark matter beings have developed a way to manipulate baryonic matter and create these probes?

She also supports climate change science (& reports on it routinely) which a majority of repubs don't. Based on her love of animals she is an animal rights advocate to some degree. Howe refers to God as "the divine field" numerous times which I doubt many in the religious right would condone.

R79, I think R78 is making a reasonable assumption based on the physical and flight characteristics of these objects observed by eyewitnesses and also tracked on multiple sensors (e.g radar).

For example, UAP seen and tracked accelerating and turning at speeds and generating g-forces that would vaporize the pilot and structure of a normal aircraft.I n one such sighting by multiple Naval aviators and radar operators in 2004 near San Diego, several objects appeared at 80,000 feet, then dropped within seconds to 20,000 feet without producing sonic booms, exhaust trails, or any other “normal” signature of rapid movement. Given that some of the observed objects are as large as fighter jets weighing 20 tons or so, in order to accelerate that kind of mass to the speed needed to cover that distance in such a short time would require about 1,100 gigawatts of energy, which is more than 10 times the total output of ALL the nuclear power plants in the United States. To put that in perspective, the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in Arizona, provides about 3.3GW of power for about four million people.

Also: no sonic boom produced. Thankfully. Because if there had been one it would have annihilated not only the US Navy aircraft and fleet below but probably a good percentage of San Diego too.

If either Russia or China had such technology - 17 years ago! - do you not think that we'd all be speaking Russian or Mandarin by now?

People should understand that credible sightings did not start with the recent navy videos. Many highly credible sightings began in World War 2 and accelerated massively with post-war nuclear testing. Many credible sightings are highly correlated with either nuclear testing sights or nuclear weapons facilities. What was New Mexico associated with around the time of the Roswell incident? It seems the advent of the bomb really got the UAPs' attention in a big way. Do some reading there is a lot of credible information out there.

I haven't thoroughly read the whole thread but don't see Luis Elizondo being mentioned here. He's a former US Army counter-intelligence officer who ran the Pentagon's secretive UFO/UAP program for almost a decade. He resigned because he was frustrated by people within the department who were "going rogue", whatever that means (he didn't explain it) He did mention that there are aliens walking among us but we can't see them and brought up the multi-dimensional theory.

The government has been in possession of alien spacecraft and has used reverse technology to build these things. I dated a guy over 35 years ago (yes, I admit I'm old) who worked as an aerospace engineer at Northrop Aerospace and told me they were building a top secret aircraft that could hover like a UFO, although he didn't say if they were successful at the time. I am sure they have made advancements in the technology of that aircraft since then. I have heard though that the material of these UFOs are flexible, almost breathable like plasma.

But I do believe the UFO phenomena is comprised of secret government projects, alien technology and natural phenomena.

The idea that an alien race could find a tiny little planet in this vast universe is absurd. Not to mention the vast spaces between planets. Most of them are thousands if not millions of light-years away. A light-year equals 50 thousand years.

R22, that is an incredibly presumptuous statement to make. Who is to say that the organisms that eventually lead to human life didn’t exist on other planets somewhere in the stratosphere and over time evolved into humanoid creatures? Who is to say that those planets didn’t have a century or more of a head start over the globe and achieved technological achievements that we did and also moved beyond them? Are we at the end of our capacity for achievement now? Can‘t we move forward even more? Most people will say we will.

We achieved flight AND getting aircrafts into space within fifty years. But we’re special and no other organically similar to humans could do the same and go even further than we could with it by benefit of a head start?

R40, that’s an interesting point but here’s my thought. Yes, we casually step on and destroy countless organisms and bugs as part of our daily lives and don’t think about it. But if we’re searchers with an empty log and we find a rainbow colored deer, we’re going to investigate it further. There’s a chance these are advanced creatures from another galaxy who have found evidence of life on another planet? Will their first choice be to destroy it after the journey or study it? It’s not dissimilar from human anthropologists.

Yes, they might dissect and study the carcasses to some degree, but I’m sure they are more interesting in studying our habits and communications.

There’s always the threat that we are actually quite common throughout the trillions of galaxies and they’re here to plunder our (dwindling) resources, but the fact that there’s consistent appearances of UFOs makes me think we’re being studied on a long term basis because they probably could’ve erased us already if they wanted us to.

This doesn’t dispute the notion that we may be one of several functioning planets of intelligent life they’re studying. But it could be a thing where it’s like scientists on our planet studying thousands and thousands of different species but, in our case, maybe spread our over several million galaxies and their arrival in each has been perfected in a time space continuum that we can’t even comprehend.

If you ever talk to people about this it's surprising how many have had an experience. Also how many "put it out of their minds"

My uncle is a retired air traffic controller, he says people in his profession have been aware of UFOs for years - and their actions - he's sure from their behavior they aren't government aircraft. He and his colleagues have been seeing stuff like this since the 60's (him, anyway - some, probably earlier) - there's no way the government (or other governments) had technology that could do the kinds of things UFOS do, way back then.

I was talking to an acquaintance a while ago and this guy is not a bull-shitter or a prankster and is always sincere. He told me about being on a lake in NH as a teenager at night - he and some other guys had swum out to a raft, and were lying there looking at the stars, when slowly the stars were blacked out, like a huge object was blacking them out. Then it lit up with thousands of lights as it went over and hovered, then moved on. Again, from his description, this thing was like, football fields wide and long, so where would any government be storing anything like this - and this was back in the 90s.

by Anonymousreply 123January 25, 2022 9:43 AM

I honestly think the secrecy is down to this * The government knows they're real, but knows virtually nothing about them, they know about as much as we do * They're so far ahead of us that we have no defence. Thus the government possibly wisely keeps it quiet. Admitting either of these things will devastate public confidence in the government, while staying quiet has no downside.

He’s never been trained on nor flown an F18, and knows nothing about its radar and infra-red camera and tracking systems.
