                                                  In June 1901, the first recorded close encounter of the third kind occured at Bournerook, West Midlands, England, when an object like a 'hut' was seen in a garden by a youth. It contained two small men, under 4 feet tall, wearing khaki suits and helmets, one of whom approached the witness before returning inside. The object created an electric glow around its base and took off skyward with a whooshing noise.

This is all I have on the case.

Whats everyone think?

Well d'uh!

Anyone ever notice how the style of Ufo encounters varies with different generations? In the sixties, it was the classic flying-saucer shape as reflected in the movies. In the late 1800s it was the flying-airship. In medieval times it was the burning-cross.

Says more about human interpretation than interplanetary visitors, methinks.

Sounds like a typical Tory cabinet meeting.  huh.gif

On a serious note though, as Loonboy pointed out it's interesting just how varied such reports are. If we were being visited by extra terrestrials in this way, surely the reports would be a lot more consistent.

                                                  Personally I still think that most of the modern day UFO and alien sightings are just modern examples of fairy sightings, all that has happened is that as we ave become more advanced so hav our perceptions of the fairies.

My point, bigsteff, is that people are definitely seeing 'something' but human psychology seems to be intervening.

We seem to be projecting our own ideas onto what we are seeing, rather than seeing it for what it actually is.

I believe that we have been visited, and that those visits were from different kinds of entities. Naturally they would have their own specific means of transportation and naturally that would change over time, but, for medieval folk to see crosses in the sky at a time when the Christian religion was spreading seems worthy of note. For people to see airships when our own technology was developing the first airborne vehicles is also something to consider...

                                                  I find the Idea of the Human psychy playing apart in interpreting  peoples discriptions very interesting . Of course Medievil folk would not have stood around going  " Hey!! did you see that It looked just like a Boeing 747 that did"  So I think that interpretation has also come down to what the people of that time had to compare it with .
   In the originall post Al put up , there is enough information to still be able to put it into a classic alien encounter case . Only it lacks detailed discription on the actuall Aliens themselves, like color.
  Speaking of color though why do you think in the 50's Aliens were seen as little green men and now days they are more often classified as Grey  smile.gif

I didnt mean it that way (I sounded a "little" strange tho!)

I persom sees a bright light that moves towards him and e thinks that it is a ghost then tells someone that he had seen this bright light but not that he thought that it was a ghost he has told a true storry. But maby if this light where just a car driving towards him and he then tells someone that he had seen a ghost then the storry isent true becos he didnt see a ghost!

                                                  Kismit,

In the 50's aliens were seen as little green men because of the pulp fiction book that where available at the time and were so popular, people read about and saw films of aliens that were green and so saw them as green.

Later on in the present people see grey's because of again mass media, and also because that is how everyone sees them.

                                                  Thanx Al but I allways assumed it was a chicken and egg question . Which came first the alien or the media hype?
   Perhaps we just arn't visited by the green variety anymore . Does anybody know of any documented little green men encounters , other than the green children ones?

Kimm, I understand (I think) what you are saying. A person has reported their experience as it was for them. In that way, they were telling the 'truth', but the truth is very subjective and very much depends upon the person.
