Hehe, sorry, I guess I do ge too much into science. But, really the question is do you believe in aliens here, and that's my answer. No, not really. Even without all the science, it just seems like such a stupid idea for other aliens to fly around and hover over crap.

Here's another funny thing, so right now I'm working with satellites and we have one called ICESat that shoots a laser down to examine the thikness of ice. I'm sure there were people who saw that laser and thought the satellite was some sort of alien ship. I'm sure most of these "sightings" are just mistakes like that.

The first and third photos in the last link look too good to be real to me, the second one I have no idea about, but the fourth and fifth ones appear to be authentic.

I believe that there is life on other planets, whether it be microbacteria or living, breathing animallike forms to plantlike organisms, I believe it.

Morj, working for NASA?



Kurieo, read the comments on the first video. It's a commercial, not a real newscast. The second one is a commercial for the scifi channel. Photos can be easily faked.



Edward, you make it sound like bacteria aren't living things. :v

Not quite NASA, LASP. It's part of CU (University of Colorado). Although it's its own organization, it works under NASA. ;p

As for photos, yes they can easily be photoshopped. Also, weird lighting/camera angles can make a normal object look weird.

McGill U, 'cause even as an international student, it's a hell of a lot cheaper than NYU, etc. Biology major.

Hey, I'm pretty close. Chemical Engineering.

For me, CU is in-state, so the tuition is a joke. Plus, the engineering department's good here, so win-win for me.

Aah. The only choices I had in New Jersey were Rutgers and Princeton. Was pretty sure I wasn't getting into Princeton, so I didn't even apply. Rutgers would have been super-cheap for me, but McGill is a better school, and I didn't want to go to the same place as like.. 40% of my high school.


I shall now duck out of this conversation to engage in cooking.

I of course do I believe in aliens because I AM ONE! Ok im not an alien. but I do believe in aliens.

I don't believe however that aliens have visited us. Those UFOs are aircraft in testing, I think.

Stop necromancing 5-month old dying threads.

"Necromancing"... Heh. That's a fun term to use for it, isn't it?
This is way more than 5 months old at this point, I'm just dropping in because I'm bored and curious whether anybody on this sleepy forum would still be interested in the topic. Smile
I'm undecided, honestly. I wouldn't bet on their existence, but if somebody made contact, it wouldn't shatter my worldview - it would be more "hey, that's cool! Tell me more!"

The universe is expanse. There are countless other planets and stars and so on out there that who is to say that we are the only form of life out there? That we're on the only livable sphere? What is livable to us may not be livable to others, and what is livable to others is not livable to us. Anything is probable. So, I believe there is life out there. Whatever form it may be in.
