Re: No evidence of aliens visiting earth
It was decades ago. A Pentagon policy thing. Don't remember the source, but thought it reliable at the time. It makes sense. Look how poorly we do just inter-racially.
What makes you think they won't be a threat when we do, if we do, make contact?

Anyway, we are way off track in speculation land so as far as UFOs go, I have had my say....

Re: No evidence of aliens visiting earth
I'm talking the 60's. UFOs were a scary thing. They were seen over DC and jets were scrambled.....

People thought differently about a lot of things back then in the before time....

You can bet your life savings the Pentagon has contingency plans, though. And they are warriors.

Medical improvements since back then, like MRI etc., might make an autopsy less likely these days, but, frankly, I doubt it. I think they see it as a something they are required to do by the nature of their duties.... just in case.

Again, speculation land....

Re: No evidence of aliens visiting earth
Good. As long as we agree and understand that....

Changing the subject, a "quantum tale".

A woman came into my museum several years ago and donated a shot glass of sea glass from Maui's glass beach.

She came in again last year, excited to tell me this story as she knows how much I love to hear synchronicities:

"I found a piece of pottery (on a California beach) with my father's birth date on it.

I have a friend who collects antique pottery so I asked her if she could identify it. She did some research and found out that it came from a town in Pennsylvania; a town my father and grandfather had lived in.

It was the bottom of a mustache cup made for a specific regiment in the army; that my father and grandfather had served in."

The kicker? "My grandfather had once worked in the factory that made the mug."

"There are more things under heaven and Earth...."

So keep the faith, Faith.

Re: No evidence of aliens visiting earth
Your inability to be anything but snide and uncivil is also very telling.

Re: You are not doing science
Without spirituality you have nothing, hence your bitter, angry, derisive, cynical nature...and the flaws in your physics only science.

I think you are wrong. And there is no "religion" in my posts. Except to define "religion".

Did you know that just because a thread is begun you don't have to participate in it if you don't like it?

Perusing
Well, I finally went and perused your other threads and topics.

I won't being doing a spiritual thread and you folks can shift this where you like. I don't care what category you put it in.

Seems it is the same small group of people posting in all the threads and, surprisingly for me, I don't see any science threads.

I am also not a Christian, so it would not be appropriate for me to participate in your Christian threads. I would just get the same abuse I get in this one. Something I am sure Jesus would approve of, him being such a judgemental guy...

So. In leaving, I would just say this:

I came here hoping to hopefully discuss and enlighten and was despised and greeted with derision, instead of conversation.

Sad.

I would suggest, if you want to know about "religion" and the great faiths, and the real magic and power in this world, that you visit my "symbolofunity" site.

I certainly won't be discussing it here.

So, BiBi, folks, wish I could say you've been good hosts.....

But even in the spiritual threads you treat each other rotten and fail to see the brotherhood, the oneness, of us all.... You are blind in both spirit and science. I don't like places like this, which is why I went to sea for 27 years.

If anyone needed to see, it is all of you folks. For the Christians, I suggest you follow him instead of worshiping him. He was a Jew. He told the healed lepers to go to the temple and follow the rituals.... (No, I don't follow rituals. I am also not a Jew.)

The Romans deified him in 300AD (Council of Trent) and then obliterated all the other sects, including the writings of the original 12 disciples. What, you think no one wrote down what they said? The Romans liked to make gods of men, especially when it suited their purpose, and you are just continuing to practice that paganism.

In deifying Jesus, the Romans stole his message from you; that, as I have said, you are all the Creator's children. You can live in Jesus' world (I do) if you simply do what he said: Love the Creator with all your heart and soul and realize the kingdom he lived in lies within you - It is all manifested from the Creator within, not the apparent physics without. This is the golden nugget at the core of all the great faiths. It is what all the Founders knew.....

Of course the Creatorless here know better, and much more, than the 90-95% of humanity that believe in .......

If any of you want to communicate with me directly via email, it is fine with me, but I am fairly sure I am done here....

I can't believe you folks don't get the infinity thing. Everyone else does....

Oh, well.....

As I see you all as kin, and studied all I did for you, I wish you all the best. (I'm sure that should get some snide responses)

See ya.

PS: It is Creational Evolution: Polar bears didn't turn white by "chance", they turned white because the greater life within, manifesting the polar bear from within, "realized" there was an advantage in being white. (PLEASE - no white "privilege" comments! - Yes I saw your political threads, too, which, from my point of view, have no place in either a science or spiritual forum. Political forum, yes. Here, no.)

PPs: For you Biblical scholars, why was Moses 40 years, Noah 40 days and nights, Jesus 40 days, and, any other 40's in there?

Because in the Old Testament, "40" just means "long time".

Did Joshua's trumpets fell the walls of Jericho? Only in that his noisy parade removed the guards from the gates (who went up on the walls to see the show), so the agents he had enter the city slowly over time could open the gates for his army to rush through.

Who was Adam's first wife in Genesis? Lilith. What happened to her? Is that why men have an even number of ribs on both sides?

Who the hell did Cain have to fear and where did all those people come from he lived with?

Think they lived a long time back then? 600 "years" divided by the 12 moons in a year = 50 of our years.

Think giants lived back then? Sorry, dino bones they found....

Moses crossed the reeds area at the end of the Great Bitter Lake. He couldn't have made it to the Red Sea in the time allotted and there are mountains running from the GBL south to the Red Sea. Pharaoh would have overtaken him as his people were burdened with their stuff and on foot, while Pharaoh's army was in chariots.

A strong north wind that would rise in the mid-day (seasonally common there) would blow the water out of the marsh and allow him to cross mid-day. "The north wind dies with the sun", something we seaman know and is common knowledge amongst people who know the weather, and Pharaoh's army got mired in the mud in the evening....

If it seems too outrageous, like Moses parting the Red Sea, or trumpets felling walls, it is. Instead of studying the Bible, become Biblical scholars. They are not the same.

Occam's razor applies....Hence, my model.

Bi
