Thats right, all they have to do is debate Roswell a few decades more. :santa:

I think they would do if there was cast iron scientific proof that an alien spaceship had ever been here

No only idiots are doing what idiots do, science still has it's complete integrity. A true scientist wouldn't be wasting money on such ventures. This is the pseudo group defecating on the web again..  Why fund something so ridiculous. The odds of seeing even asteroids or comets is rare, let alone a chance "fly-by". smh

  • The age of stupid is upon us. Scientific conclusions are drawn from missing data, resuming to suppositions and guessing.

Posted 09 November 2013 - 04:18 PM

Any expense for such great purpose should not be questioned at all. However the problem i forsee is interpratations of data. Assumingly some results might indicate a spaceship passing in the front of a star creating fluctuations, etc...so it is a meteorite, or coment or anything else. There would be a lot of if and maybe.
I personaly believe there is a lot of cosmological science and processes that we don't trully understand or we're wrongly interpreting. How we can deal with that?

They have been, for nearly 70 years and they have failed miserably. There is no proof that alien life has ever visited here, we have some credulous explanations for some atmospheric anomalies from a less than reputable crowd propagated via entertainment media. Due to the fantastic nature of the tales, the misdirections in recent times with regards to the possibility of life on Mars and Venus coupled with the ignorance of the masses, has led to some thinking this popular culture to be fact, when it is indeed anything but. The woo woo train simply continues to borrow credibility from people just like this to propagate nonsense. If not, why was Bob Lazar not even close with element 115?

If not one object has even been tracked as coming from space into or out of our atmosphere since the inception of RADAR, why look to space for a UFO answer if not only imagination? This is science remember, not a campfire.

Is that so?


Kepler has been wildly successful in its four years. To date, it has found 132 exoplanets - that is, planets outside our solar system - and possibly 3216 more that await confirmation. Researchers have extrapolated from Kepler data that our Milky Way galaxy alone contains at least 100 billion exoplanets, as many planets as there are stars. Still, with the telescope - which is 40 million miles from Earth - having collected data on 150,000 star systems, researchers are only beginning to pick through all the information.


What have UFOlogists uncovered in 60 years? How to accelerate book sales? Waiting around and guessing has produced many anecdotes, but not much else. The curse of Phil Klass comes to mind here!
Seems to be kicking more goals than your heroes? What have you got? Believe testimony - and only when it suits you.

Standing still is how you got to where you are today. It's also rather lazy isn't it? You are also not the most magnetic personality either, why do you think anything would just come to you? Is that like those pathetic hippies that ask the Universe to provide for them?

Could you explain further please. I honestly consider your opinion valid in this instance as I feel you are something of an expert in this field.


This man has more of a clue than every FTB in the world tied together and folded over.


Really, the proper question is: 'How far away is our nearest intelligent neighbour?' They could be 10 light-years, 100 light-years, a million light-years or more. We have no idea."

That sounds more like the questions we should be seeking answers to.

Just to mention that All these Aliens helped us out Is Insane ! We have on the other hand sent out probes,our little calling cards to points out there ! And we always leave evidence of our world& type`s of tech level !
Yet there has been not a piece of hardware left for us to Inspect ? I find that quite unrealistic !

E.T. would of come and built the great Stone temples and such,and not even leave one cutting tool,or bolt or C/D/ disc on how to build a City ?
I think its a far streche to believe we for One are the ones that have built every thing on this Planet !
Sad ! VEry sad to undermind our Greatness ! :tu:

He just gets everything wrong, and then orders all other posters around like he is some authority, when he is anything but. I do not have a problem with pondering, but to say such stuff is fact is just going too far, and the throw away your textbooks lone I feel honestly deserves no respect whatsoever. Not sure why so many wear kid gloves with him, he sure does not bother when speaking to people like Jim who are so many leagues in front of him that even several lifetimes of catching up would still have them apart.
I find his nonsense an insult to logic, common sense, and humanity as a whole.

I'm not sure I follow that thought! The man is a legend in planet hunting (if not the best), how does that equate to "If they were here he would probably know"? after all, he couldn't be looking any further away from here if he tried.

I expect considering his passion, and his position with the resources available to him, that he would probably have the most extensive network on the planet in this regard?

Very good read. I can't help but wonder if are internet has already become a "Exonet". Considering that on the internet you can be talking to anyone/anything through animity. And if Aliens truly are visiting our planet in the form of UFOs it is very possible they have already connected are World Wide Web to the rest of the Galaxy.


Of course you are correct!....[ps..has anyone here ever seen Badeskov, Hazzard and Dbunker up close? :ph34r:  ] .. :yes:
