    Default UFOs & ETs

    What's your opinion on reported apparitions, abductions, etc?
    Do you believe some of them are real?

    I don't have an opinion and honestly I think I don't even know how to have one on such things.

    My tendency is to wonder about things rather than explain them.

    When I see something strange, it has a question mark on it so to speak. A strange object in the sky for example evokes the reaction of "Well that's strange! I wonder what it is?" rather than "That must be aliens!"

    I have no want or need to explain or have an opinion about it.

    there is no way to know, so its kinda hard to form an opinion about them

    I guess like many things I think it is hypothetically possible but unlikely
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    i'm with sprinkles on this one... the majority of these sightings are floating question marks.

    that's being said, i do think (well, not a thought of my own, rather i find the sources saying such more reliable), that a lot of historic sightings where current technology in development stages, both success stories like the modern drones & stealth bombers, & massive failures that didn't get passed trial. and more of the later, because there's a good chance that if you see it as a dazzling light, then the point of leaking fuel on the slow burner or melting metal parts has already being reached.

    i also think one reason a lot of this crap is unidentified is because its not a finished product, rather, its the basic stuff in experimental stages, the first time a technology is taken out of the lab will rarely look like an actual airplane, and is more likely to be a cheap ass prototype, whether its a new engine (that someone caught burning sideways and swaying like an alien spacecraft), a reusable satellite deploying rocket didn't quite make the way back, an experiment with light materials that turned out to not be capable of taking the pressure and air friction of a sonic boom and exploded to dozens of slowly falling heated debris, an experiment with magnetic solar sail mounted on a satellite that ended up coming not so gracefully back to earth, etc...

    in all such cases, both commercial companies and military organizations have largely enjoyed people calling these technologies alien sighting, because if its a successful technology then you don't want the competition to get the idea of what your working on, and if it's a big ass failure you don't want people to realize you've invested 100s of millions of dollars into something that blew in their faces...

    this doesn't explain everything, but the reality is that alien conspiracy theorists are largely harmless, and there's no cover up like the cover up of one's own ass.
