I find it odd that if aliens are real, and UFOs are extra-terrestrials, why haven’t they made contact? We are obviously an intelligent race. It’s nice to think that aliens really exist, but I always come to the conclusion that UFOs are really angels and fallen angels.

Not necessarily.

I believe in the Bible and I also believe that man’s creation is not the only creation God made in this universe.

I also believe that, because sin is so anathema to God’s creation, that we are under an embargo until the sin situation has resolved itself.

In Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, Ford Prefect arrived on Earth courtesy of a teaser or something similiar. Ford stated that they were spoiled rich kids that loved playing jokes on the inhabitants of lesser developed worlds.

I always liked this quote from Men in Black.

Point to ponder....

Edwards: Why the big secret? People are smart. They can handle it.
Kay: A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.

Jus’ Sayin’ ;)

I don’t doubt there are UFOs, but I find it HIGHLY unlikely we have been visited by beings from another planet. Even if there was someone out there that COULD come here, they would have a difficult time even finding us. We’re on a tiny little planet, out in the middle of the ‘galactic boonies’.

I never liked mass punishment, but it is a proven behavior modification technique.

We who are without sin, must organize and give the sinners blanket parties just like Basic Training at Fort Polk. The needs of the many out weigh the whacks from soap bars in socks to the few.

God isn’t punishing us. However, He must show the reality of sin and the Plan of Salvation in all truth and glory, so every creation can see it for what it is, so that when sin is put to rest, it will never raise its ugly head again.

I find it odd that if aliens are real, and UFOs are extra-terrestrials, why haven’t they made contact? We are obviously an intelligent race.

As a civilization we have littered our solar system with space probes. Many that have gone to other planets and many more that will exit our system and continue on theoretically forever.

To think we are it, all there is in the vastness of space is arrogant and foolish at best, there are others out there.

Even if a given race is only 100, 200 or 300 years older than we are. Or let's say they are 200 years younger than we. Yet during our Roman Empire days instead of destroying each other they were busy making technological leaps. What's to say they, while being slightly younger than our civilization are a few hundred years ahead of us.

Now my point is, they might have created propulsion that would enable them to send deep space probes, possible artificially intelligent deep space probes which can sense and respond to other intelligent life, visit planets, gather data and relaunch themselves back into space.

Its not far fetched at all, my guess is that in about 100 to 300 years we will have the same capability.

I kinda wonder if the truly unexplained UFO's are infact space probes from another civilization. If our .gov is infact in possession of an alien space craft, its almost surely an unmanned space probe. Not ET's corvette.

There are a group of folks here in town, called the Gulf Breeze UFO Society, who routinely go out to the beach and await the arrival of UFO’s. They claim to have seen dozens of them, yet they have yet to offer any concrete proof. I have met several of them, purely by accident, and I must have to say they are unquestionably the oddest and just downright most bizarre people I have ever met in my almost 53 years on this planet. Just one look at them and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Those two guys in the picture, look ABSOLUTELY NORMAL compared to these folks.

These Aliens are us. Read Sitchcin. We were created in the Nephelin image. We are not talking Christian. We are talking about creation. The Old Testament was interpreted from Ancient Sumerian text. It is all written there.. Ezekiel, Genisis and many more books describe UFOs. Not to mention. The Star of Bethlehem. We are the creation of the Anunnaki, from Nibiru.

IIRC Carl Sagan speculated the persecution of those teaching such things as irrational numbers may have set us back 500 to 1000 years. We're talking Jetsons on space coke.

There needs to be a clarification on definitions here. Before any reasoned debate can take place, the acronym UFO needs to either be defined clearly or discarded if the discussion is to be about alien spacecraft.

If one is speaking of lights in the sky and believes these lights to be alien spacecraft, then they need to say so.

By using the acronym UFO, one is admitting that there is an object...that is flying...that is as yet unidentified. To ascribe any meaning to 'unidentified' one must have evidence to make a suppostion or create a theory...one way or the other.

'UFO' does not mean 'alien spacecraft'.

My favorite quote of all time actually. Yea, it was just a cheezy movie and all, but the concept is valid. Only recently have we ‘discovered’ life in hot vents in the ocean that science believed was not possible. But life there didn’t give a whig for what science thought.

We have only recently ‘discovered’ other planets in our little corner of the universe. Anyone who thinks that other life ‘out there’ is impossible...well, to each their own, but it would seem a lot more likely than not.

Intelligent? Spaceworthy?

Imagine what we’ll ‘know’ tomorow! ;)

I agree Jonty, never understood when we have these paranormal threads on FR that the real dorks come here with pithy comments, bad jokes and random stupidity for no other reason to spam it up. Comment to add to the conversation, dispute a premise, add an insight but if your purpose is to post random mouth diarrhea, plenty of political thread to spew sentence fragments about Obama or Ron Paul.

Right on. First day of class stuff. The term UFO, used by this party, heretofore, hereafter, and for happily ever after shall be deemed to be defined , understood, and in return for valuable consideration in hand paid, to mean and only mean Unidentified Flying Object.

I’ve always found that assumption to be quite flawed.

If this is truly God’s focal point . . . witness Christ and The Cross . . .

and the place where the Believers who will rule and reign with Christ through countless ages and evidently over countless worlds . . .

are getting their

BOOT CAMP training . . .

why wouldn’t that be of interest to those to be ruled over? Why wouldn’t at least some know about it.

HOWEVER, I believe that all the critters well known and written about connected with UFO’s are merely fallen angels deceiving man at this time.

Even IF some are from distant planets vs a spiritual dimension—they are still all in cahoots with satan toward setting up his deceptive global satanic government.

That’s all I need to know about their values, goals etc.

Oh, don’t take it so hard. You, also, have NO PROOF.
I am not a total denier, just because I have never seen one, but I will remain quite skeptical until I see one, or until someone comes with a new law of Physics that explains how one can travel here at, or faster, then the speed of light.

As of now, I figure that 11 light years is about as close as one can be, baring the proof of “worm holes”, or super warp speeds.

Get back to me when one lands in public, for all to see,
or contact is made by radio.

if aliens are real, and UFOs are extra-terrestrials, why haven’t they made contact?

Imagine that we flew to Mars and found there a medieval society, just a notch above discovering bronze tools. Do you think we will just land in the middle of a village and announce something? That would only create a new religion. Instead we would simply observe the natives.

Similarly, if aliens land on Earth today, what will they tell us? What do we need to hear? Humans are terribly divided, and aliens aren't likely to unite the civilization. They would instead cause more violence.

If aliens exist they probably understand that all the troubles of humans are self-inflicted. We have enough land to live on; we have enough food if we grow it wisely; we have the technology to further improve life. Why instead do we have one tribe of savages beating up another? Why our elected leaders do everything in their power to make things worse? Until that is corrected and sanity prevails aliens don't need to land. Whether it can be corrected is a completely different question.

He isn’t the worst of the lot, I’d put Ralston and Sebelius on a pike. But it is Vegas we are talking about. Lot’s of things are very murky, right now especially.
