Do you believe in UFOs?

Post by Secret Weapon »

From other worlds? Nearly 50% of people in the US do.

Buzz Aldrin does:

The Disclosure Project has gotten over 200 credible sources from NASA, the government and military to come forward and testify that there are:

So what do you think?

It's possible but I highly doubt it.

That people have seen an unidentified flying object? Yes
That the UFO is alien in nature? No

I think its possible that a species on another planet might have achieved advanced space travel, and I'll conced that its possible that they might have visited this star system, as much as anything is possible, but I highly doubt it, especially considering the billions of stars in this galaxy, and how long it would take another race to explore it. I also doubt it because of just how long it would take to travel to even a close star even at light speed.

Its just as likely that another species is still in the stone age, or killed themselves off with some version of chemical/nuclear weapons.

Yes, I think that we are ignorant to think there's no other life form out there some where.

I think it is possible that there are other forms of life out there somewhere just because as far as we know, the universe is limitless - enormous, huge. Too big to rule it out.

To quote Carl Sagan(or one of his characters anyway):

"If we're really all alone out here, it'd be an awful waste of space."

I'm on the fence on it, but what makes me wonder is why would so many people lie about this? Look at the list of people on the Disclosure Project wiki page, there are over 200 people, including high ranking NASA and military officials all coming forward with information. This is a nonprofit project, so what incentive would they all have to lie? They are only opening themselves up to ridicule.

I mean really, why would Buzz Aldrin lie?
