Just thought you guys should watch this if you haven't already. I swear I feel like my mind leveled up a notch or two after watching. Mentioning this mostly due to the talks on beliefs in regards to alien life and such.

funny that in all the UFO photos and videos I've seen, there are cars more modern looking than them; doesn't aliens have any design sense? :laugh: :rofl:

 

 

Or basic appreciate of propulsion or aerodynamics? They can traverse the galaxy, but they'll only do so in the same sorts of vehicles which were popularized by fiction authors in the early 20th century. Coincidence? YOU DECIDE!

Many the aliens are smart enough to use designs that work. ;)

I don't believe that aliens have probably visited Earth...

 

But...

 

I do think it's extremely short sighted and unknowledgeable to say that they couldn't.

 

100 years ago, most rational people would have laughed at the idea of people on the moon. Today, most of us understand much, much better how drastically what we think we know can change in a short amount of time.

 

Many (if not most) well accredited scientists that study cosmology, astronomy, biophysics, and theoretical physics have come to the understanding that it is much more likely that life exists than doesn't on many of the 10-100 billion Earth like planets estimated to exist in our galaxy alone, let alone the hundreds of billions of other galaxies out there. An intelligent species on one (or many) of those planets could be thousands or even millions of years beyond us, and/or 100x as intelligent on average.

 

That said, I suspect most (if not all) legitimate UFOs are US military. Even the government's own investigations into UFOs said that a small percentage of them are completely unexplainable. Given what scientists have shown themselves to be capable of, and what has been proven to be possible, with the billions of dollars the military is capable of using to fund research, almost nothing they could be flying would really surprise me.

 

In the end, the UFO argument is akin to how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. Those who are the most sure that they know the answer are the least credible.
