The US government has formally responded to two high profile petitions about UFOs and alien visitation.

The two petitions demanded that the US government confirm the visitation of intelligent extraterrestrials and to release to the public all documents pertaining to human interactions with them. A representative from the White House Office of Science and Technology responded to both requests.

"The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," he said. "In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the publicís eye."

"The White House has responded to two petitions asking the US government to acknowledge formally that aliens have visited Earth and to disclose any intentional withholding of government interactions with extraterrestrial beings."

nope just reach into the box and do the deed (this is starting to sound very dodgy indeed.)

Hi, folks, I'm going to be off for a while for health reasons (My daughter's not the only one with health issues.) and will lose track of this thread. It's a shame because I've enjoyed it immensely. Hopefully, I'll run into you all somewhere else later on. Until then, mahalo nui loa for allowing me the pleasure of your company and my best wishes to you all. Kludge

Sorry to hear that Kludge. Yes its a shame as I enjoyed your input and we were building up to having some fun. Priorites though. Wish both you and your daughter all the best, and hopefully one day you can rejoin the discussions (we should have the evidence by then also )

A bit like the Kinsey scale. It might be interesting to see where people might suggest that they'd put themselves on the scale. (Your ET Belief scale, i mean,. not the Kinsey scale. While that might be interesting, it might be slightly off topic. )

Best wishes. It's been nice to see some positive discussion rather than the usual back & forth bickering.

why years of travel? (if it didnt take years do your other points collapse?) why would they want to communicate? why do they need water?

Now, I like you, you seem to have an open mind, more so than some of these other responses I have received, I always say "closed mind, closed lipped"!
