    /because somebody had to start it
  • 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).
  • I find your lack of faith disturbing.
  • X-Files has been off the air for a while...this is not surprising.
  • 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.
  • Perhaps UFO technology has advanced beyond the "blinky lights everywhere on my ship" stage, hmmmm? HMMMM?
  • If only the religious would realize the same thing.
  • Well, I'll be damned.

    It was a streetlight after all.
  • "I flew 200,000 light years to visit your planet, just to make circles in your crops."
  • Even the Jehovah's Witnesses stop coming around after a couple of decades if I don't engage with them.

    And as any Algonquian Indian would probably assure you, if you could find one, it would probably be a fine thing if they couldn't find us out here on the unfashionable western spiral arm of the galaxy.
  • poe_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.
  • People are giving up after, what? The rather miniscule search period of forty or sixty years? Isn't that kind of like looking about for the girl that schlicked to Tom Gordon for fifteen minutes and then farking off cause the game was on? Never give up hope.

    /praying for alien abduction in five minutes
    //screw this mudball
    ///gentle probing is okay, if that's the price to ride
  • If you were an advanced life form that could travel those distances, would you visit us?

    Yeah, 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.
  • Perhaps it is more dangerous for them to visit us now?
  • 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.
  • I_Am_Weasel: If you were an advanced life form that could travel those distances, would you visit us?


    Yes. Just like I would go to Antarctica to visit penguins if I could.

    In all likelihood, we would be poisonous to them even if they did eat meat. Different evolutionary backgrounds. Plus, we don't generally eat stuff that can fight back. Mainly, we go for the more docile species.

    Don't worry, they would probably be allergic to us.

    I feel like a chode saying this, but of all the memes on the internet this is one of the few that makes me feel kinda bad for the person involved. Seriously, who among us haven't taken an embarrassing picture?
