    I have to be honest, I always wanted to believe UFO's visited our world but never had any hard evidence.

    I just saw the most rediculous thing while driving home, i saw blue and red lights moving at a insane pace. I sped up and thought forsure this plane was going down; it was going to crash. I saw that the plane looked more like the lights were rotatint than blinking, and the object turned right very sharply and dissapeared beyond the trees. I am confident in what i saw and i know it will be tough to convince anyone.

    You'll have to figure a better way to explain. I imagined your post as describing a police cruiser on a chase rather than something in the sky.

    The pouder you snorted, was it white or blue?! :lmao2:

    j/k I used to love this topic when I was younter but never saw any real proof. If there are UFOs..i'd vote it would be secret govt planes or along those lines.

    That was me. I put red and blue lights and a turbo charger on my ultralight air plane.:p:

    Seriously though, I believe in UFO's because I have some very credible relatives that have seen the great cigar in the sky.

    I witnessed one when I was about 12 or so....A bunch of us kids were playing outside late one nite and watched this saucer like spaceship hover above a building.... We all had a great view ....it never made a sound....and then gently for about 100 yards drifted away ....and then "bam" ...still without making a sound sped away faster then anything I ever could imagine.

    I still to this day more then 30 yrs have passed talk about it with the other friends that were there......we all come up with the thing......no one believes us when we mention it...but it happened.

    I saw something very similar once. Then I quit eating shrooms while driving, and I haven't seen it since.

    I believe it. There is no way we're the only planet in the Universe with intelligent life. It's just a mystery how that life gets here since we're so many light years away from everything. I have seen one theory explained on a simple sheet of paper. You can go from one side of the sheet (point A) to the other (point B), or you can fold the paper in half to where point A and point B are almost touching each other. They called it creating "wormholes" to where you can basically travel anywhere. How they do that I don't know.

    In my opinion, the issue of traveling is less problematic than the issue of finding. The universe is so incredibly vast that the odds of any alien civilization finding us are highly unlikely even if they were looking and had a means of reaching us. Consider these three points:

    1) The SETI project's sole function is to seek out intelligent alien life by monitoring radio waves in space. SETI has never stumbled across any signs of extra-terrestrial life despite years of continuous monitoring.

    2) Humanity has only possessed the ability to send radio signals over the past century or so; therefore, the maximum possible distance a radio wave sent by humans could've traveled is 100 hundred light years (because radio waves move at the speed of light). Any sign of our existence in the universe is limited to this 100 hundred light year area.

    3) Our galaxy alone is 70,000 light years across. The universe is 20 billion light years across. 100 light years is infinitesimally small in the grand scope of space/time.

    Finding intelligent life in the universe is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack with one exception: You're far more likely to find a single needle in a haystack or even 1,000,000 haystacks than you are to stumble across alien life. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.

    Having said this...

    Locked&loaded, I believe your story, and I believe you saw what you say you saw. I simply don't believe the craft was piloted by aliens.

    The mention of SETI made me think of a video to show you.

    Also, I love the movie "Contact". :)

    There's no guarantee that UFO's communicate using radios. It might be like sending smoke signals and expecting some device to pick them up. Also, earth has been around for billions of years so I'm sure we've been stumbled upon before.

    Area 51?

    As one comedian joked, "Have you ever seen the people who claimed to have seen UFOs?"

    Maybe these UFOs were bringing an economic stimulus package to bail the world out.

    Actually, there's no guarantee of this. On our planet alone, there remain areas where man has never set foot.

    Although UFOs may communicate through some means other than radio, the hypothetical civilization that produced UFOs was, at some point in its history, probably using radio signals, which SETI would be able to detect.

    I was watching a show today on the top 5 most popular UFO encounters. There was one encounter on this Airforce base and several Airforce personel went out to the outskirts of the base (near the woods) to check it out. They say it had flashing blue and red lights and hovered over them, shot a beam of light down at their feet, and then slowly flew away without making a sound. A top official for the Airforce was interviewed and tried to debunk what they saw. He said what they saw was a combination of a meteor, a falling Russian satellite, and a police car driving around in the woods.

    Of course, the great irony of SETI is that it's searching for signs of intelligence by sorting through naturally occurring radio waves. In other words, they're seeking intelligent design within the universe.

    :eek:

    Yet, when we try to apply the same principle to other fields of science, we're branded rubes and morons.

    And, yes, I very much enjoyed Contact--definitely one of Matthew McConaughey's better moments.

    How come nobody ever heard of, wrote about or ever talked about UFO's and the like until the space movies of the the 50's started coming out??

    Also, if there really are "extra terrestrial" life forms, and they can actually MAKE it aaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the way here to Earth, then they must be light years beyond us in knowledge and acumen and brain power and technology to pull that off.
    Yet, when they get here, they always fly directly to Area 51, get caught, and at that point aren't smart enough to get away?!?!?!

    You'd think that after all these years, they'd learn to NOT fly to the ONLY place on Earth that is waiting to catch 'em!

    Also, with ALL THESE aliens flying around and ALL these sitings and "visits", you're gonna' tell me that NOT ONE LUG-NUT fell off over Arkansas somewhere? NOBODY'S EVER FOUND a used light-bulb or an alien cigarette butt somewhere in Michigan?

    So, until further notice, I'm an unbeliever....................

    Area 51 is near Roswell, were a UFO supposedly crashed. That's the only time I've heard of a UFO getting "caught" there. They first reported it as a UFO crash, then changed the story a few days later and said it was just a weather balloon. There've been supposed crashes all over the world.

    I'm not certain this is true. As I recall, Teddy Roosevelt mentioned witnessing a UFO.
