Do you believe in aliens and flying saucers?

So this thread builds on the highly successful ghosts thread to ask if you believe in aliens/extraterrestrials, flying saucers/UFOs and such like.

Personally, unlike ghosts, I am a skeptic and remain to be convinced in intelligent life out there in Space. Now obviously there are UFOs in the sense that they are unidentified flying objects, but whether they are alien craft or not is a matter of debate.

As such, let's debate it here in this thread and try to replicate the success of my ghosts thread. Here's hoping! :D

    Yes. There is no way we are the only planet with intelligent life on it, let alone life in the entire universe.

    That's almost certainly true, but do you believe that they have visited our planet?

    I think it's logical to believe there is other life on the many of billions of planets out there, but
    I don't think anyone is flying about, visiting us.

    Agree with that, it's conceited to believe we are unique on this planet of ours which is in a galaxy which is but one one grain of sand in a desert. I just can't accept they fly here and make corn circles then go home.

    Presumably given what we are doing to this planet, you are not referring to humans as intelligent life...

    If we are unique in the universe as the only planet to host 'living' beings, then that would suggest we are a mistake - a blip, an anomaly and as such, we won't be around for long.

    If you look back at our history, we've only really been visible to other planets for around the last 100 years since we started emitting radio waves into the cosmos. That's a minuscule time frame when you think about how long life has existed on the planet. If other civilisations on other worlds do exist, it's quite possibly the case that they have yet to reach this stage, or perhaps, they've passed it and have moved on to technologies we have yet to discover?

    So projects like SETI, whilst admirable in their efforts to find intelligent life in the universe, are probably doomed to failure, because they're searching for something that may not yet exist, or has been and gone.

    Do I believe in aliens and UFO's? Yes, absolutely the former, because I'd hope we were not just some bizarre mistake and totally alone. The latter? I'm sceptical that civilisations advanced enough to visit our planet would need to do so in little space ships. If they are so advanced, they'd probably do all their travel by exploiting dimensional warping and teleportation or other means that we have yet to discover or dream up with our tiny minds.

    Agree with above. What boggles my mind is all our knowledge and technology only applies to what we know and our own environment, sending out signals that work for us only theoretically work in the outer reaches of space, any other life form would probably have a completely different way of communicating.

    but then I am ravin mad :D
    By the way, did I tell you, I was "Mad"?

    Are we alone in the universe? Undoubtedly not.

    Do UFO's exist? Yes.

    Are they aliens? Who knows, until one lands and says hello they'll remain UFO's.

    The numbers have to dictate there are thousands of planets out there with life. I think if anything made it this far they would have contacted us, or we'd have known much more about it. I don't think anything else has made it to us yet.

    good points here as usual ,the way I see it , 8-) is the reason why aliens ,who probably have a vast superior existence than our cave man
    attitude to our planet ,its animals and its peoples .They probably wont contact us until we clean up our act , we are like the dirty scruffy family at the end of the road ,that no one wants to talk to . we are our worst enemies , X-(

    One thing I do tend to think and it connects Silhouette man's two threads is that religious minded people tend to believe in ghosts but not aliens or ufo's! It is interesting that ancient cave paintings and hyroglyphics have ufo type images in them, but then modern man is just scraping the surface of our own planet and it's history, maybe ancient people were more enlightened than we are today?

    I think that there is every possibility that there is life elsewhere. The Universe is just too big to say for certain that we are alone.
  • MilleniumForceMilleniumForce LondonPosts: 1,214MI6 Agent
    It's highly likely aliens and UFOs exist. We've barely even started exploring the universe, so why are some so positive that there isn't any other life? There's probably a planet out there right now, full of beings debating wether there is life outside of their planet.

    Does anyone here remember Roger Cook and The Cook Report? I remember watching it as a child in the 1990s. Posted below is a YouTube link to a different kind of episode from the investigative journalism show. James Bond even gets a mention!

    The Cook Report [1987] - Close Encounters:

    A non-confrontational but somewhat eerie episode as Roger Cook investigates the likely cover up behind the strange goings-on at two different properties in the west of England.

    People see what they want to. Anything they can’t explain instantly MUST be a UFO full of aliens wanting to prove Uranus.

    Take a look at all the Area 51 videos on YouTube. Countless ‘explorers’ driving up to a fence or the infamous back gate to intice out the ‘camo dudes’. But what’s inside Area 51? Surely it must be full of aliens etc?

    Or it could just be a testing ground for military technology. For all anyone really knows the odd lights etc could be a distraction to entertain the tin foil hat wearing brigade.

    If Area 51 really was full of ET, Roswell really was an alien crash site and we’ve been talking to aliens since the sixties or before, someone would have leaked definitive proof by now.
