Close2TheEdge: Just based on pure probability, the chances there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe are pretty high. What UFO enthusiasts fail to acknowledge is how monumentally difficult it will ever be to locate, much less contact such intelligent life. And it isn't like the rules are different for the aliens. Considering how relatively primitive we are, the chances that they will find us are probably very slim.
poe_zlaw: If only the religious would realize the same thing.

I_Am_Weasel: If you were an advanced life form that could travel those distances, would you visit us?
smadge1: It's also quite likely that such advanced aliens would have no qualms eating us, unless they are vegetarians, I don't know which possibility is scarier.

Bhruic: Close2TheEdge: Just based on pure probability, the chances there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe are pretty high. What UFO enthusiasts fail to acknowledge is how monumentally difficult it will ever be to locate, much less contact such intelligent lifeYeah, what people often overlook is that the very thing that makes life likely, if not a mathematical certainty is also the thing that makes it extremely unlikely for us to find them, or vice versa. I mean, sure, if there was life on another planet within, say, a 50 LY radius, there'd be an at least measurable chance of some sort of contact - assuming that "life" was somewhere close to us on a development scale. But that chance is extremely remote. If there's life on another planet 50,000+ LY away, well, yeah, we're very unlikely to ever know about it. And that's assuming there's some in this galaxy.
The_Time_Master: Perhaps it is more dangerous for them to visit us now?
Just what THEY want us to think! Any of you retards ever heard of a little thing called the end of the world? How about 12-21-12?
Great_Milenko: It's very simple. People looked to the skies because they were looking to the future. They saw what they wanted to see. The power of suggestion, and overactive imagination lead to a lot of UFO sightings during the space race. But now people no longer look to the future, so they're not going to see "UFOs" anymore.We're heading back to people seeing demons and angels (but mostly demons, and mostly in the US).
Nrokreffefp: You smell like Reddit, and it smells bad
Close2TheEdge: relatively primitive
MayoSlatherpoe_zlaw: If only the religious would realize the same thing.Yes, but we're supposed to coexist and be "respectful" of each other's beliefs. Even though, believing in religion is just as fantastical as believing aliens abduct people for anal probing.
apoptotic: FTA: "The reason why nothing is going on is because of the internet. If something happens now, the internet is there to help people get to the bottom of it and find an explanation."He may have a point about it being because of the internet, but maybe it's not entirely for the reason he thinks. If I saw something, having "reported seeing a UFO" potentially come up in google searches of my name for the rest of my life would certainly make me think twice about reporting it.
WorkingInParadise: FTA: "Enthusiasts admit that a continued failure to provide proof and a decline in the number of "flying saucer" sightings suggests that aliens do not exist after all and could mean the end of "Ufology" - the study of UFOs - within the next decade."and that's when they will invade.
dittybopper: . Even the Wikipedia page on it doesn't mention the possibility.
