Today, I figured I'd talk about one of the most controversial paranormal subjects - UFO's. There are so many theories on UFO's that they couldn't all be covered in 10,000 blog posts but I'm going to cover some of my basic thoughts on the subject.
1. There IS something out there.
2. It's an awfully big waste of space if we're the only ones in it.
3. Although I believe aliens exist, I don't think they've been here.
Okay, so point one. Too many people have seen things for me to think there's not something going on - no smoke without a fire. And what about the photos and videos? This is probably the most documented and ignored paranormal phenomenon on earth. Makes me wonder why. Now, is everything unidentified an alien ship - no. Look at all the photos over the past decade that lo and behold look just like the Aurora that the military released somewhat recently. Obviously a lot of people got a glimpse of new technology and yes, it IS unidentified but not alien.
Then there's the abductees. Do I think people have been taken - yeah, probably. Again - no smoke without a fire. But then I also have some conspiracy theory tendencies and someone tell me what better way to do illegal testing on your own people but to kidnap them and convince them is was aliens? Everyone will think they're crazy and then your government just got away with everything, hiding under the biggest lie ever told.
Point two. Are we really so vain that we think this vast universe was created simply as our playground? Personally, I don't think it was at all. If you believe in a God that created everything, then why would he stop with earth as the only place with intelligent life? If you think it was all a combination of particles and a following explosion, then why couldn't it have happened somewhere else on another galaxy?
Point three. This one threw you didn't it? Here I am yelling no smoke without a fire and don't be vain and then I go say that I believe they're THERE but not HERE. I used to think they were coming here, but this is why I changed my mind. Logic always wins with me and very few people on this earth could be considered as logical as Stephen Hawking. For those that don't know the man, Hawking is an Oxford educated theoretical physicist who is considered by many to be the most brilliant person of the 21st century. Hawking is most famous for his work on black holes although almost all his work involves cosmology as he believes our future lies in space.
I was watching an interview one day and someone asked him about aliens. This is essentially what he had to say - yes, he thought there could definitely be other intelligent life out there but that they had no come to earth. And that if they did, it wouldn't be in peace. Then he pointed out that historically, any time a more advanced civilization came upon a more primitive civilization, they either enslaved them or slaughtered them. Obviously if another culture can travel through galaxies and time to find the earth, they would be more advanced than we are. Not good for the home team, according to Hawking.
Makes you stop and think, doesn't it?
So, if I think there's something out there, and I do think there's aliens, but I don't think they've been here - what the heck do I think all those people are seeing that don't fall under the heading of drunk and disorderly or new military equipment? Well, I don't pretend to understand any more than just the barest minimum of the time -space continuum, but essentially there is a theory than space and time can overlap. I think that is what happens and what those people see is us, but a future us with future technology and perhaps even evolution. Maybe the earth undergoes a catastrophic event - meteor, earthquake, or even nuclear war, and mankind as we know it has to evolve to survive.
What about you? What's your theory?
