    Glitch,
    I am knee-deep in this 3-book series that tells the story of a massive government coverup involving aliens that visited Earth just before
    WW II. It is just a story but it makes the coverup sound plausible.
    But I do wonder how some people can be so obsessed with alien visitors and not be able to show credible proof of their visits.
    Why do you think the show "X-Files" was so popular?

    Aliens exist, the government knows, and Dan McCarthy just found the proof. When Dan McCarthy stumbles upon a folder containing evidence of the conspiracy to end all conspiracies -- a top-level alien cover-up -- he leaks the files without a second thought.
    The incredible truth revealed by Dans leak immediately captures the publics imagination, but Dans relentless commitment to exposing the cover-up and forcing disclosure quickly earns him some enemies in high places.

    The mark of a good work of fiction is to make it seem credible. It is rather interesting in that most works of fiction that included extraterrestrial aliens prior to the 1950s and the beginning of the Space Race, involved aliens from within our solar system. From H.G. Wells "War of the Worlds" to Edgar Rice Burroughs "The Moon Men" and "John Carter on Mars" series. We didn't start thinking about aliens from outside our solar system until we developed human space travel.

    I think a lot of people want to believe that intelligent life beyond our solar system exists. Which is fine, because it may. The problem comes in when they want those intelligent aliens to be visiting Earth. How would aliens even know about Earth? It isn't like we are in a crowded neighborhood of stars and planets. We are between two spiral arms, approximately two-third of the way from the center of the galaxy. The furthest any of our transmissions could have traveled is a maximum of 170 light years, which is a tiny distance compared to the size of our 100,000 light year diameter galaxy. So even if there were some super intelligent alien species somewhere in our Milky Way galaxy, how would they know we even existed?

    Then there is the problem of transportation. Assuming they knew we were here, how would they get here? Would they spend the tens of thousands of years to travel to Earth themselves? Or would they send robots first, like we would?

    Until an author can answer those questions credibly I'm afraid I can't enjoy any work of fiction involving extraterrestrial aliens, and movies that promote bad science, like "Interstellar," only serve to piss me off.

    I guess that's why SF writers and movie directors need to rely on the concept of wormholes to get from one part of the galaxy to the other.
    Either that or hibernation for thousands of years like that recent movie "Passengers".
    I mean, who really understands how wormholes can make you transfer from one galaxy to another.
    It's like understanding how quantum physics works.

    You appear to me to show the signs of cognitive dissonance typically rejecting anything "official" or from US gov or mainstream media.

    So explain this....

    The UFO thing has been in the consciousness of society since the late 40s. Everyone's heard about it. So why has no private citizen found an artifact and not turned it over to the gov and called a press conference to display their find?

    In every instance this has occured, military types, government types, confiscate and threaten them and their families with serious harm, if they mention it.

    It's their modus operandi, and it works. We are finding a lot out by the testimonies of persons who swore to keep secret such things, when they are on their death beds, long after the gov confiscated the evidence. Apparently it boils down to a few things, as to why the gov wants UFOs to be secret.

    1. Because their propulsion systems, if made known ( which are known ) would free the world of dependency on OIL.

    2. Because if aliens are known to exist, it poses a problem for Christianity and religion.

    3. Because they initially suppressed the subject in the 40s (when, after Roswell, UFO sightings leaped into the pubic consciousness) because of the Orson Wells's "War Of The Worlds" radio show which caused a huge panic in the 30s, and they didn't want to cause another such panic. AS the years passed, far removed from that panic and forgotten, the gov so invested in the cover up now won't allow it uncovered because they've invested so many years in covering up, and don't want to face the consequences of having done this for decades.

    There is evidence they are gradually turning around on the subject, and releasing information, bit by bit, to the public ( the Navy's recent videos of UFOs in flight recorded by naval pilots ).

    Watch two DVDs:

    Greer's "Disclosure" and "Acknowledged" I believe they are on YouTube.


    Also, read the book "Walking Among US" by Dr. David Jacob, books by him, Dr. John Mack and Bud Hopkins, all of whom have hypnotically regressed thousands of people from all over the world who, astonishly, tell the same story, over and over and over again.

    No one on this forum can convince you. The only thing that will lead you to a place where you realize there is abundance of evidence where one can safely presume the existence of UFOs and aliens, is a burning curiosity, not to believe, per se, but to follow the evidence to some conclusion.

    Ever wonder why programs like "Ancient Aliens" state most of their premises with "what if", "is it possible", without really proving anything.
    The TV shows are fodder for prime time TV, to sell soap and what not. Alien shows/Bigfoot, and what not, are NEVER going to prove anything, and the reason is if they did, that would be the end of the gravy train of such programs.


    You simply must dig deeper than TV to find any serious information on the subject.

    Also, most of us in UFology do not watch "ancient aliens". We want to know what is going on NOW.

    There's another leg of the UFO subject, and that is the regressed under hypnosis testimonies of thousands of persons who were adducted by aliens/ufos from all over the world who astonishly tell the same story, over and over and over again, giving us the idea that what they are saying is really happening. ( how could so many people have the identical hallucination? It defies logic ). .

    The three prominent hypnotists are:

    1. John Mack ( harvard psychiatrist )
    2. Bud Hopkins
    3. Dr. David Jacobs.


    Listen to all of their lectures on YouTube, and real all of their book,s the lastest of which is "Walking Among US" by Jacobs. It's revolutionize your understanding of what is really going on in the world, behind the facade of what is visible.

    Dr. Jacobs very logical premise is this:

    Sightings of UFOs tell us nothing about what they are up to.

    To find out what they are up to, find out what is going on inside the UFO.

    Viola, testimonies of abductees, close encounters of the 4th kind.

    As I pointed out above, the problem with "worm holes" is that they are two connected black holes, each with between 3 and 10 solar masses. Science fiction conveniently ignores the gravitational effects that many solar masses has on everything around it. Some of the better science fiction books and movies I found are those that do not try to explain too much of the technology. For example, in the movie "Passenger" they talk about a fusion drive, but they don't go into any detail about how it works, just that is their main source of propulsion. That is a good thing, because inventively the author is going to get something wrong that ruins the "plausible deniability" science fiction requires.

    It is possible that we may one day develop fusion drives. Equipped with such drives it would be possible to travel interstellar distances because they could refuel from the interstellar medium which consists primarily of hydrogen. The hydrogen is dispersed over huge distances, but by the time a spacecraft left a solar system they would be already traveling faster than 10% the speed of light and would be able to collect more hydrogen as it traveled faster. When traveling below relativistic speeds hydrogen fuel could be siphoned from gas giant planets. There is also the problem of time dilation when traveling vast distances at near the speed of light. The astronauts aboard a spacecraft traveling at 99.9% of speed of light could reach the Andromeda galaxy 2.5 million light years away and would only experience 25 years lapse. However, Earth would be 2.5 million years older by the time they arrived at the Andromeda galaxy. Even a short trip to our nearest star, Proxima Centauri 4.24 light years away the astronauts would only be a couple years older after they returned from their 8.5 year round trip as perceived from Earth.

    The movie "Passenger" was one of the better science fiction movies for many reasons. The fact that they were traveling sub-light and took into consideration time dilation made it plausible. I also like how they didn't bother to explain the shields at all. They show them graphically, and you know that is what ultimately saves the ship from total destruction, but they never mention them. Furthermore, the faster they are going the less they will be able to see in front of the direction of travel because they can only sense things at the speed of light. Which makes the impact with the asteroid plausible, since the asteroid field could have moved into the ships path and the ship traveling at relativistic speeds would have been unable to maneuver around. The movie depicts the AI attempting to maneuver through the asteroid field. For the purposes of the story line, I'm willing to overlook the fact that asteroids are typically millions of miles apart and only bunch up like that in Hollywood movies. No movie is perfect, but even still "Passenger" was pretty good from an astrophysical point of view.

They take samples, do surveys and go back into suspended animation and wake up back at their home planet which has passed thousands of years. Unless space travel is time travel... this just doesn't make sense... let alone seem possible.

    So, what advanced civilizations are capable of, doing stuff that doesn't make sense to you, therefore, means it's not possible?

    One thing I wouldn't do is try and second guess what aliens of advanced civilizations are up to, and why they do what they do.

    Anyone who tries to do that is really setting his or herself up for erroneous thinking. Who the **** knows?


    I'm not going to sit here and assume they haven't figured out some way to traverse the cosmos lickety split It would be arrogant of anyone, including scientists, to assume they cannot do it because science cannot comprehend it, or their level of knowledge doesn't allow for it.

    It's hard to know what memes are buried in the subconscious of people who are exposed directly and subliminally to media. These memes may surface in hypnosis not because they are similar experiences but a subconscious meme.

    I'd like to see the data on where these sightings and abductions are. I know they are in many countries.

    I've read some of the authors you mention. I think they have confirmation bias and some of the accounts like the NYC ones are hard to swallow...

    Building pyramids doesn't mean alien help.

    I am waiting to see scientists jump on board... and I don't see that.
    Nothing is as it appears.

    You don't see that because you're not looking for it.

    You are waiting for your favorite mainstream media talking head to announce this so that you can then see it. You are an uncurious person.
