Re: There is voluminous research from top government agencies and people.
So they are now admitting that these sightings are of real phenomena or objects.

All anyone is admitting is that they have no explanation for some things that were seen and recorded. Nothing more, nothing less. This is no big expose. Same as it ever was.


Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Real sightings
BTW, when you're out in the countryside at night away from city lights and the moon is not out, those lights you see moving across the sky are satellites. Yes, you can see satellites with the naked eye under the right viewing conditions.

We see them whenever we look up on a clear, moonless night.

Maybe there is nothing out there after all
The thing I find most interesting is that most reports of aliens present something humanoidish or recognizable as some sort of creature we have some familiarity.
If there was any other life out there, I would think it would be so alien as to be unimaginable. If it were intelligent life it would be unimaginably different than what we can conceive intelligent life would be like.

That’s the anthropic principle: Earth’s history must have allowed intelligent life to evolve, or we wouldn’t be here to ponder it.
Intelligence seems to depend on a chain of improbable events. But given the vast number of planets, then like an infinite number of monkeys pounding on an infinite number of typewriters to write Hamlet, it’s bound to evolve somewhere. The improbable result was us.

Re: Maybe there is nothing out there after all
No one doubts there are UFO's, What is doubted is that it is some sort of interstellar visitor. I do no think there is any reason to even consider the possibility they are interstellar visitors. Or ghosts. Or demons.
