Extra terrestrial life beyond our blue planet

  1. May 21, 2009 #1
    Everone is curious if there is any extra terrestrial life beyond our blue planet.

    do aliens really exist?

    Some organizations claim that they've got the strong evidences about existence of alien or the landing of alienship on earth, is it true?

    any comments'd be appreciated.

    cheers,
    ryan.

    The evidence, as of now, does not meet scientific standards for reliability.

    There will exist extra terrestial life because we cant be alone in such vast a universe but the probability of us ever having an interaction with such life is neglibly negligible

    Such absolutes like "can't" don't apply to a problem where there is no direct evidence to support any conclusion.

    Some one (sorry can't remember who it was) when asked if he thought life existed in other parts of the universe replied "I hope so, otherwise it’s a big waste of space".
    I doubt aliens have landed here. Even if they had FTL travel the effort for them to get here wouldn't be worth it if all they did was fly around or make crop circles.

    If there were aliens(much intelligent species) travelling our planet in UFO's , why they land only in developed countries like USA,russia Germany etc,why not in very poor countries I guess its the false propaganda made by government of rich country publicizing that they have well understand space and have a lot of progress in that.
    i believe that there may be living organism in other planet ,but we cannot be sure if they are under/above intelligent than us.

    Yea thats the one. Best line "Thats hydrogen times pi".
    I think for alien's to get here they would need a higher level intelligence than us.

    Sounds like contradiction to me - if they have a higher level of inteligence than we do, they won't get here.

    Re: alien?

    Yeah, the most UFO encounters are recorded in US, that doesn't necessarily mean most US Americans have video camera. I think US government is working on secret super technology aircrafts but I don't agree that they are working with aliens. yeah, I also can't understand why UFO's are only encountered mostly in developed countires. Some even claim that they've been kidnapped by aliens, lol. If I're kidnapped I'd take control of their alienship with my evil mind, lol.

    Re: alien?

    Your premise is false. Without addressing the claim of ET directly, UFO reports are not limited to industrialized countries. In fact, in Peru, the idea of visiting ETs is almost taken for granted; esp with the older people.

    This is where you are dead wrong, there have been reports in countries all over the world even in third world countries.

    Here is a good video by astrophysicist Dr. Michio Kaku.

    Re: alien?

    I wonder why I always hear about things like aliens, ghosts or UFOs, and yet I haven't seen any of them in my whole years of living on earth. My guess is that I will never see these exotic things, and this is too bad! :frown:. Perhaps there is only one wicked alien that is wandering the earth trying to mock us, the lucky son of a b...:mad:

    Re: alien?

    They exist. I don't know why they are here. I don't know where/when they are from. I can't explain how they might travel across - what we perceive as - vast space IF they come from other star-systems.

    I do know I have seen two moving in tandem one evening - DEFINIETLY NOT a plane or anything else that flies around this earth that anyone has ever knowingly invented. No sound and super-fast.

    I had a very close relative who was sworn to secrecy - working for the Canadian Federal Government. Years ago, he told me that he was involved with a few interesting projects with the military after WWII. He was commissioned to investigate UFO sightings. He said that he couldn't give me any information because of his secrecy oath but he did say: "I started the program a skeptic; when I finished I knew for sure that we are not alone in the universe." From someone as honest and true as this man - I HAVE to believe it.

    Re: alien?

    What exactly did you see?

    Re: alien?

    When it happened, I reported it to Peter Davenport of NUFORC:

    Click http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/043/S43202.html" [Broken] for my report.

    The whole list of sitings from my province at NUFORC is found http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/ndxlON.html" [Broken].

    If you go to the Ontario sitings link within NUFORC - via link directly above - you will notice my report dated: 3/27/05 20:40 Brampton (Canada) directly above it - later on in the evening - another report was apparently logged: 3/27/05 22:15 Brampton (Canada)

    Davenport runs a pretty tight ship and is well respected. There is a lot of great reading and reports within the site from all over North America.

    http://www.nuforc.org/" [Broken]

    The data base for North America - although titled "National" - is found http://www.nuforc.org/webreports.html" [Broken].

    Re: alien?

    Thanks. If you haven't done so already, be sure to take a look at the UFO Napster at the top of the S&D page. Note that the NSA [National Security Agency] just reorganized their site again, so while the reports cited are still available, not all NSA links are working.

    Why do you think that you saw alien spacecrafts, and not some unrecognized natural phenomenon, or an unfamiliar technology?
