    UFO sightings were invented by humans too.

    For incidents such as that, what do you think is the more rational explanation: That an alien spaceship crashed in Canada, or that some sort of military vessel crashed? Come on, use a little Occam's Razor here...

    Governments can't even waterboard or wiretap people without getting caught. What makes you think that the world's governments would be able to keep THIS a secret? Why hasn't a UFO ever crashed in some African or Central Asian country with no functional government to engineer a coverup? Funny how these sightings always seem to happen in countries where UFOs are a part of pop culture...

    And I believe that UFO conspiracy theories are howling-at-the-moon lunacy...even moreso than most other conspiracy theories. At least most other conspiracy theories don't presuppose the existence of extraterrestrial visitors for which there is absolutely no evidence.

    The government will never admit there is other life out there and must say that dude best watch his back cause I am convinced they/gov have killed people for speaking out about this before.

    And you're right, it would take a huge amount of evidence to make people believe it wasn't some huge hoax.

    Still, longest time spent on the moon... respectable guy, I think we should at least pay him some mind.
    It reallywould not take much to make people believe. I have saw polls and the majority of people think there are other forms of life "out there".

    I don't quarrel with the notion that there are other forms of life in the Universe.

    I do quarrel with the notion that government bureaucrats can keep a secret this complex for this length of time.

    If there is a cover-up, I have my doubts that the bureaucrats would be in on it. I would think it would be military and intelligence agency cover-up, and they know better than to trust their cover-up to the bureaucracy.

    That being said, I don't really think there is a cover up. I remain open-minded to the possibility that alien encounters could be real.

    For the most part, I'm with the "If it's real, just tell us. We can handle it" crowd.

    One of the things that makes me think that a cover-up is possible (albeit unlikely) is the way that the War of the Worlds radio broadcast caused people to do all of the goofy **** that they did. That would have been a factor on the decision to have a cover-up to begin with (if such a cover-up were to exist).

    But like I said, until I see real no-**** evidence, I'll remain skeptical.

    Besides, all of this rests on the idea the government(s) wield enough power to keep beings who have perfected interstellar travel from revealing themselves unequivocally if they wanted to.

    There is not a shred of evidence to support the idea. If you believe it despite the lack of evidence, I don't really want to hear much from you about how irrational religious people are.

    Do not underestimate the immaturity of the human race. Millions of people freaked out over Janet Jackson's nipple and billions of people believe in supernatural dieties who grant wishes and eternal life. If you tell people that there are superiorally advanced alien beings out there, visiting earth and abduct people against their will...ahem.

    I do not think that aliens would abduct us or even land on earth or be able to live amongst us. I bacteria that we are immune to could wipe out their own species. I doubt an advanced alien race would as stupid or as foolish as to risk that in order to put a rod up a cow's or hillbillies ass. It is not very likely.

    Wow, a few dots of light. That totally proves it's extraterrestrial visitors.
