As Jim suggested in another thread.. this topic deserves its own thread..

Now while ufo's have been supposedly reported from the dawn of history.. lets just cover those from the 20th century and onwards..

(thank you wiki for the following list http://en.wikipedia....d_UFO_sightings)

The discussion is a open free for all.. if you have a particular event that is your pet favorite.. or are curious to see what others think.. if you are unsure of what the event is.. check the wiki page.. most of them have a link to get the full story.

Now I know a heck of a lot on here have been debunked (the Hills.. the norway spiral etc).. but there are believers still out there.. and also a number of these have been discussed before over the years.. but we do have a number of new people on here..

Are we starting from the assumption that everyone must be divided into sheep or gaots, or Believers and Skeptics?, and that if one is a Skeptic, then one must insist that there's a Rational explanation for all of these? have all these cases been Denunked satisfactorily, in the Skeptical view? You say, for instance, that Betty & Barney Rubble- er, Hill have been Debunked. What is the accepted Debunkation for that? If a Debunk has been offered, then do the the Skeptics must accept that, like religious dogma, and say "that's been put to bed then; Next!"? That's sometimes what it seems like.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Pretty much.. though there are still some that have yet to be explained :)

Take the Hills.. their 'abduction story changed so much over a period of time.. that it ended up becoming laughable.. from what the aliens looked like.. betty said they spoke english. barney said they used telepathy.. and it goes on from there..

But there are still people that believe that they were abducted..

for me.. Foo Fighters have always perked my interest.. they have not been fully explained for me to say .. yup.. debunked or solved.. there is something about them..

hello Dingo,

maybe a good starting point would be for you to note next to each case listed
-solved (with a couple of words such as hoax/plane etc)
-unsolved

then we can go from there....

Surely there might be an obvious answer there, for instance, that if one was communicating with someone then obviously one would use their language, would one not? And if they did communicate through telepathy then possibly they'd have some technique for the recipient being able to understand in their own language? Equally surely, if one had had an experience that was completely outside one's normal range of experience, then it would be difficult to find words to adequately describe it, so that what you said might sound inadequate or implausible? Regarding the appearance of the Aliens, yes, the tall blond aliens in shiny suits do sound straight out fo 50's sci fi, but that might be the only way that someone to whom this was completely outside their normal range of experience could describe it? Or perhaps even the ETs might choose to appear in particular forms to particular people or races, to avoid freaking them out too much, or perhaps they were a kind of avatar, designed to appear to them in a form that they could comprehend? I really don't know if presumed inadequacies or discrepancies in testimony are good enough reason to dismiss all such experiences with a curl of the Lip.

ok true..

When Barney took a few people out to see where they were abducted from.. he described the aliens as having large wrap around eyes.. which he never mentioned in his original description (3 years prior).. This description came out a week or two after the show The Outer Limits showed a alien with low and behold.. large wrap around eyes..

Carl Sagan did a bit regarding Betty's Starmap in his Cosmos show..

1940s The Foo Fighters


What we now term UFOs were reported in Europe during the mid 1930s. They had what we term a UFO wave during that time. Also the odd ball CE3 later reported to organizations such as APRO that supposedly predate WWII. Coral Lorenzen had her first UFO sighting during the 1930s.

Well, think about that; if they did come as a result of the Atomic bombs, that must mean that they'd have had time to detect the explosions, decide to do something about it (though why they should be so worried is anyone's guess, since there are billions of immeasurably larger atomic reactions going on all over the universe all the time), launch an expedition, and get here in time to plant at least one of their craft all over New Mexico, all in less than two years. That would have to mean they were pretty close.

If you are new to UFOs I recommend one of the UFO Encylopedias. Some public libraries carry them. You can read about older UFO encounters such as Robozero, Russia (also called The Robozero Marvel), UFO 'battle' over Nuremberg, Germany in 1561, etc.

to 'support' the hypothesis re the common lore we need to consider that these fellows are omnipresent, they get to see what we're up to through some bio-conscious field / or, something similar and that they do not need to traverse the vastness of space to get here... they just pop-in-n-out, just like that... but then there's the question, if they are aware of our misbehavings (i.e. to say that they are monitoring us constantly) then why do they need to pop in physically to observe whatever it is that they need to observe? it kinda goes against the zoo hypothesis, isn't it?

Maybe they keep coming back because we are an experiment that they started and had nothing to do with the bomb.  At least not at first.

Since they must be a very advanced race to do what has been reported over the years it might not take them that long to get here even if they live light years away.
