Recent revelations about UFOs, as well as the recent subcommittee hearing, have rekindled interest in the topic.

There is little doubt this this would happen, with the US Government no longer denying the existence of UAPs, the American are going to follow suit!!!!:yes:

Curious in how there is likely a correlation with the lowered educational standards and aptitude scores for Americans and those who believe in extraterrestrial visitations. Dumb people believe dumb things, as my old commander used to say.

I believe in UFOs in the sense that we can't identify everything we see in the sky. I've seen some strange things in the sky but that's a long way from saying that I saw aliens flying around.

I'd like to see a poll with 'experienced' rather than 'believe'. Most people believe a dude wearing Birkenstocks and a toga runs everything for crapssakes.

Agree, but it is how UFO are used by people. Many replace spirituality with little green me, which is really wrong and another sign of a sick society.

Well people believe all sorts of things. Doesn't make it real.

Terrible headline. How can one NOT believe in UFO's if you know what UFO means. Unidentified Flying Object. Not Alien Flying Object.

Could that explain why there were certain folks who actually believed the Air Force's explanation that the 6-foot test dummies and accident victims of the 1950s were the small alien bodies people saw in 1947?

Why can people never learn to ask the question in a correct way. UFO is not something to believe in or not believe in, it simply means Unidentified Flying Object, i.e. as soon as something is seen in the sky that can't be identified it is per definition a UFO. It has nothing to do with aliens. The question they meant to ask is probably "Do you believe in alien visitors?".

It was Capt. Edward Ruppelt, director of Project Blue Book, who coined the term, UFO. Before he had done so, UFOs were often called flying saucers, flying disks, saucers, spaceships, etc.

No matter how a term was initially introduced, it has obviously evolved over time. Unfortunately, the ETH believer crowd refuses to evolve with it.

You really love the 60 year old black and white crap dont you! :lol: Like those poor fools that still keep pushing the old Patterson/Gimlin video of Bigfoot, or that silly old Nessie photo.

And just like the latter two in cryptozoology, when it comes to evidence of ET visitation your "favorite" UFO cases are a dead end.

Maybe not to you, but to everyone else.

Fred, you were doing great, until this ------> "It has nothing to do with aliens"

If you can't prove that, you really have no right to assert it, just as no one has no right to say that it *is* aliens.

It has nothing to do with aliens in exactly the same way it has nothing to do with interdimensional tomatoes from the centre of the Earth ;)  

If you can't prove UFO's are not interdimensional tomatoes from the centre of the Earth then ..... :P

I think it's the older generations assumption that if someone in authority tells you something it must be true...

Now days I feel the general consensus is if someone in authority tells you something it's probably BS

I think you hit the nail on the head here...

This and the fact that Skyeagle would love few things more than that some of these UFOs are alien spaceships.

Great combo.

 

PS: It also helps if that person has no idea about science and its method or critical thinking.
