i believe in extraterrestrial intelligence, there is no way (imo) that there isnt life out there.  i just dont know what exactly they are, from another galaxy, or us millions of years in the future coming back to "help" us, trying to figure out what went wrong thru the generations.  there are so many theories out there, i used to be more up on all of these.  aliens are more real than jesus and his henchmen, imo.  ever seen a pic of jesus?  thats what i thought  ;).     just dont ask the US government about their alien technology.............

While I agree with your analysis of "Inca Roads", I have to point out that "We Are Not Alone" had lyrics at one point in its development.

Well, I don't know anymore what to belive...<br><br>I've been raised a catholic christian, became a agnostic and skeptical man of science (maybe litlle science). But I consider mylsef to have a reasonable scientific trainning to scrutinize (centrally) among a series of natural phenomena or a grotesque fraud (the L. Delite thread will judge that for us).<br><br>I never doubted (and now, I am more convinced) of a vast existance of life across the universe), but I was always led to the scientific scapes for UFO phenomena and alike. Like one of my childhood idols (don't laugh) Carl Sagan would, explain: photos of UFOs are frauds, people make mistakes or imagine things, etc...<br><br>Even the Eric Von Daken (Were the Gods Astronats? book) stuff that deals, among others things, with Inca Roads explanations were demolished by a Archeologist expert, in the 80s still, back in my home town...<br><br>But some sightings of my own, plus a lot of otherwise "folckloric takles", I begun to supect that there is a possibility of a reality in that our govnements know a lot more of UFO nature and that stuff as Roswell might have been someyhing real...<br><br>for stuff on that I recommend http://www.ufoskeptic.org<br><br>ARF

Well, a few years ago I didnt know what to think of UFO's and a what not.<br>But one night a freind and I were sitting at a park, having a rest on the way back to his house. We stood up and walked about ten metres, and saw some lights flashing across the sky. We turned around and saw (very, very close) a oval shaped object, that at first glance i thought was a blimp, in the sky. It had light all the way around it, and sat extremely still. <br>Now, as unusual as that was, this really freaked us out.<br>We took no more than 5 steps, turned around to have another glance...it was gone. <br><br><br><br>Bizarre, huh?

lol, a definate "maybe"((:<br><br>To quote good ole Carl on this one, "Fantastic claims need fantastic proof."<br>Also, a fantastic truth such as this would inherently produce a fantastic proof, which IMHO we don't have yet. Lack of evidence is not evidence either way, so I'm neutral on the question. Maybe I'll know someday, but I think it's likely that I'll never know, (which is fine with me).<br><br>I'm for searching more with SETI as that may be our best shot at getting fantastic proof.

It was like 1995 or 96 and today, I know it couldn't be the better alternative explanation (following Occkham's razor), a satellite. Satelites only move in on direction and one sense in the sky (I am not sure but east-west axis). I have seen simultaneously 4 to 5 small objects in the background of the night sky, moving so fast that you could see the they were following the sky dome form (an arc?), and they were going on different directions. I know a bit of astronomy to know they couldn't at any possibility be asteroids. When I saw the first one, I simply ignored it thinking it was a satellite, but when I saw another one, going in another direction I've pointed it out to other people who were with me. At the same time some other people that we didn't know, haven't speaked to them before, that were camped right next to us, they saw other poits moving behind us in the sky. Just small withe points very far away... I know it sounds silly, but I even kept from telling people this, so they won't look me weird, or think I was high (i wasn't). Of course that a skeptic person will always come with a alternative, that I was deluded or something....<br><br>I bet Frank have seen UFOs too so he wrote the "mother Marry and Joseph section on Inca Roads).<br><br>OPEN YOUR SCIENTIFIC MIND Monstermovie... We once didn't know the earth wasn't flat!

Oh Monstermovie,<br>Of course there is the fact that it would be very hard to explain the HUMANOID forms of most suposed seen ETs out there, because of contingent history of Evolution...<br><br>I may be plain wrong on that, but If ETS really exists already in contact with human governements, and if they are really humanoids mabe Raelians are right!<br><br>ARF (I am going MAD!!!)

to be honest i think it would be foolish and exremely naive if not a little conceited also to assume that we were the only intelligent life forms in the universe.  There are a few problems though, the chances of the being able to contact us and that's assuming they know we are here is the great distances it would take to reach us.  Also it's a lot more important to find extelligent life rather than intelligent after all dolphins are intelligent but do they have a concept of space or further still think of beings from other planets and how to contact them.  Extelligent life however, should have after 10 billion yers of evolution maybe produced societies that show signs of their intelligence e.g libraries, schools etc.  These extelligent symbols would insinuate that they also think of space and contact..though maybe not.  I'm pretty sure that not all ufo sightings can be accounted for by means of earthly science but whether the governments have been in contact with our friends in the federation of galaxies or whatever they're called is another matter.  One puzzling thing about ufo sightings however is that many skeptics simply dismiss them as manifestations of our time citing that 100 years ago it was fairies and goblins people seen and now it's ufos.  This doesn't however take into account the ufo imagery in medieval and renaissance religious paintings and even the carvings that have been attributed to the ancient mesopotamians the fathers of modern civilisation.  There is one painting of jesus from the 16th century i can't remember the title or artist but it does show a strikingly modern image of a flying saucer...now they definitley didn't have the technology then to construct such things on earth..so where did it come from....maybe they have been visiting us  and if any happen to be reading this please feel free to take me to your dealer...sorry leader

Ok, Thanks Monstermovie,<br><br>I did not take it as such. I cannot transfer my experience to your brain, and I won't impose it as absoulute truth, it is my own. <br><br>I may had a collective allucination experience (although, that isn't the most simple explanation: parcimony principle).<br><br>I am saying all that ufo stuff, out of the bue, with a premisse: the one that we are kept away from the truth by authorities... Beacuse the allegeded lack of evidence takes this subjects to pseudoscience/metaphysics. But what I want to achieve is to gain counciousness if It is or if it isn't a matter of real science. Because if it is (i.e. frequent UFO phenomena), it would change quite a bit things as we see them... <br><br> I deeply respect your position as a paleobiologist, because it, more than a lot of other scientific activities, is based in carefull constructed arguments to support a hypothesis... There is always lots of uncertainties, thought, that sometimes are rather crucial, to  hold important conditions/assumptions of what we affirm... This could be the case with UFOs...<br><br>About the parameters in Sagan's equation, I agree fully with you. In the Cosmos book Sagan talks of most conservative points of view yet delivering a minimun of some couples (say 2-4)  of inteligent civilizations... Most liberal assumptions yield numbers of millions of inteligent species. This was way back in the 70-80s. Today we have gathered a much larger pool of favourable evidence for the existence of earth-like planets throughout the Via Lactea...<br><br>From going from that kind of argument to "there are ETs visiting the earth throughout our history" is a very large step, and to "and these is kept secret from us regular folks" is another huge way, but nonetheless it coulb be logically correct if we get to know some key facts that would be valid scientifically as, for example, say tales about catured ETs from notorious UFO crashs (if such thing ever happened)....<br><br>Sorry, I don't wanna annoyu anyone, just trying to share such a puzzling question...<br><br>Well, does anyone ever heard Frank's opinion on direct reference to UFOs, conspiracies, ets, crazy lunnatics discussing that, etc?

Rael has a base here in Québec. Two female journalists entered that gang as new disciples. In fact, it was to see what was going on from the inside. Rael always cut short any interviews where he has to answer some hot questions, either be about sex or genetic cloning. I saw that countless times. <br><br>So, these two journalists stayed for 9 months. They saw a lot of things. When they left, they made a week-long article in the daily newspaper for which they were employed (and still are).<br><br>I already posted something about that some months ago. The conclusion is that Rael is a fraud. Maybe some outer life may exist, but certainly not with via an ambassador like him. I pretty guess that if you were to substract the "sex" gratifications of joining that movement, attendances would dramatically drop by at least 50%. A lot of men would get out for sure  ;D <br><br>I knew about Rael and his gang from way back in 1978 when his first two books were published. Apart from him, and maybe some few very close to him who are totally devoted to him, nobody saw the "aliens". Curious, isn't it ?<br><br>Outer life may exist. But don't leave it in the hands of that "prophet" who was wise enough to see the gains he could make from those who do believe in aliens from outer space.<br><br>Hey, I should do that ! Tell me in what you believe and if there's no organised movement about it, I'll do it, and make money. Being jobless, it would be a warm welcome.

And besides, if you really wanna read the book alegdedlly dictated by aliens, you have to pay. They can't simply put it on the net so it can reach more people...

For those who are sensitive to life outside Earth and/or (just like me) simply love Science Fiction I suggest to read a fascinating book (at least I was fascinated):<br>"Seeding Stars" by James Blish.<br><br>Ciao ;)
