I don't, but I know a man who does laugh.gif

I've quite a few of these images purporting to be UFO's

Here's one from 1927 at Cave Junction, Oregon USA


and from 2003. Weyauwega, Wisconsin, USA
I'm forever blowing bubbles.... biggrin.gif

The Cave Junction one was the famous Levi Jeans button ... but if you want a trustworthy eye witness account of a UFO (Shuttle) and it's mothership read the description of a Close Encounter of the Third Kind published in a very reliable tome relating the story of the Prophet Ezekiel in the Book of Ezekiel in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible.
It's not a singular case but it is the most descriptive.
Using this description, transcribed from an ancient tongue, a NASA engineer produced a detail drawing, which one could probably find somewhere on the NASA web site (or ask Rabbie tongue.gif ), which showed some interesting technology to assist in take off and landing on hostile terrain; how would one land a shuttle 3000 plus years ago in the Middle East? rolleyes.gif

Bill,

Granada and Murcia in Spain have had more than there fair share of UFO sightings in recent years.

And in Valencia a few years back there was the case of the commercial airline being followed by something which forced them to make an emergency landing. The Spanish government sent up a fighter plane to pursue it - the mirage fighter could not keep up with it and the UFO disappeared on its way to North Africa.

I recall the case of the US secret recovery of 'bits' in the bay of Mazarron (I think) - this was perhaps something to do with a Russian satellite (not SKY).

In Jumilla (a fine wine producing area) aliens abducted a wee girl in 1946 - we know this is true because she said so.

But it could all just be down to clear skies at night and the availability of mucho cheap drink.

All the best

Ian

Next they´ll be telling us there´s intelligent life in........Oh no, better no say that! rolleyes.gif

Isn´t Bonnybridge or somewhere the UFO capital of Scotland?

I remember once in Lanarkshir seeing a bright light in the sky - it was very bright and did not move like a plane, a helicopter or a shooting star. I still don´t know what it was but this was before my drinking days ( must have been about 8 then biggrin.gif )

I helped a lady in distress one night who was driving from Finand down to the Spanish Coast. I invited her to stop the night by Mary and I. She was an American Indian of the Hopi tribe.
The next day I let her follow me to the French motorway to continue her journey.
Only then did she tell me, at the access lane to the motorway, that she had been subject to an alien abduction.
Had I been able to make her turn her car round I would have. I was so pist.
Even if it was only a load of bullshit that she gave me I would still have loved to sit with one who made such a claim and hear it related in the comfort of my own living room.
She was a real "down-to-earth" woman too: Mary woke me up on the morning to watch Marylou outside in the yard polishing the dull side of my car which she'd been told the night before that I was selling that afternoon.

They're oot there for sure.

Guy Fawkes night this year, my son and his girlfriend left a local restaurant.
There were three guys in the street, looking upwards.
Son thought they were watching fireworks, but they asked him to look.
Six orange pulsating orbs in the sky about helicopter height and moving in aligned formation.
They were completely silent and it took them about three minutes to slowly move out of sight.
Fireworks are noisy and last for seconds, so they're ruled out. Aircraft that we know of is not silent.

Son came home and checked out you tube. Someone else had captured and posted exactly what he saw, only from a different location.

Apparently the sightings are increasing and occuring all over the place.

I'm believing.

Anyway, do you mean they looked something like these

I'm still no' believin' laugh.gif

Posted by: carmella 28th Nov 2009, 02:28am

The answer for me is 'no' I don't.

I think there is a rational and logical reason for all of these 'sightings'.

I remember the first time I saw a Stealth Bomber, thinking that it did look like something from outer space. It was at that time I realized if I had seen such an aircraft when it was doing trials, say ten years previously when we had absolutely nothing flying that looked like it, I may have thought it was from another solar system.

So, I think a lot of the objects that are seen could be just that, a new aircraft doing trials, and other explanations which would convince me more that we are not being visited by craft or wee green men.

Posted by: glasgow lass 28th Nov 2009, 02:58am

For months and months every night a saw a red light high up in the sky over Glasgow
a thought it was a UFO, all I could think of was wee green men invading my city.
Why was I the only one to see this, I only saw it when I was on my own, very strange !.
Were they trying to communicate to me, and only me !, why was a so special.
All sorts of things going through my head. I was so excited I wanted to scream 'THEIR HERE, THEIR HERE " Then one night a was out with my sister wee Bridie, there it was thee red light shining over Glasgow, as we both
looked up in awe for about ten minutes suddenly the weather changed, the big dark clouds parted there stood my UFO in plain sight, a huge building crane with a red light on the top. laugh.gif
But in answer to your question, I do believe in UFO's.

Aye CMGiro, they looked like that only in a different formation.

Rabbie,

Posted by: carmella 28th Nov 2009, 10:44am

You know this picture looks like a giant paw print.

I still don't believe laugh.gif

Having said that, I have no idea what this could be other than a reflection of some kind - who knows maybe I'm wrong, maybe they are what people think.

Just worth bearing in mind that anything they have no name for or identification is an 'unidentified' flying object - capice?

On that subject, I just wondered if anyone on here believes in Roswell?

Richt, that's ett. Ah'm cadging a lift oot o' here!

The number o' wee green men and flying saucers = booze consumed 2^

1 pint = 1 green man
2 pint = 4 green men
3 pint = 9 green men an a flying saucer or twa
4 pint = 16 green men, jordan begins to look better
5 pint = bankrupt, seen the prices these days?

We arnea alane, it's a fairly big place, but thurrs no any intelligent life in the local neighbourhood,

Anything wi an ounce o' dugwit wid huv flittit.

Can ye imagine having us lot for neighbours? The radio wave pollution is terrible. Maybe they are away tae see Darth Vader tae git an ASBO placed on Earth.

Come tae think o' eet... Ah'm sure ah saw The Death Star last nicht.

Posted by: carmella 28th Nov 2009, 01:36pm

As I've said, I don't believe in flying saucers. But, on a further note, my logic will not allow me to believe that the Earth is the only planet which is inhabited by people (of whatever description). I can seen where there may be life outside our Solar System, where - I have no idea.

For me, it's just something I've thought about often, i.e. why should earth be the only planet in this or other Solar Systems which has life - and my answer [to myself] has to be 'it is not!"

I could be very wrong of course, and given the vast distances, I doubt I (or anyone else) will ever know.

Posted by: Rabbie 28th Nov 2009, 02:39pm

Yer no wrang Carmella, there will be life elsewhere.

I wid consider it pretty arrogant if humans considered themselves the unique lifeform in the universe. Miind ye there ur some pretty "unique" specimens hingin' aroont the streets.

It may be surprising tae ken here are planets being dicovered quite often these days.

They cannot be seen directly,as they are droont oot in in the glare. However due to orbital / rotational preturbations of the hosting star, their existance can be inferred, from this their mass and distance from parent star calculated.
Maths does have it's uses! It took me a while to embrace it, glad it did, well the engineering / applied aspects of it anyway! Ah hate statistics, its deid boring, jist like the pofaced, eggheidit numpties that bandy them arrond tae try an brainwaash the unwary.

Richt, whurr was ah..

So far, we have not discovered any planets that may be in the eco zone for life as we know it. Howver, I feel thats it's only a matter of time before we do.

With our current space travel technology the the universe is a big place to nip aroond, and neawan hus invented near light speed travel fur humans. It takes a shed load of energy to get an wee atom of matter to get anywhere near light speed. Yea seen the size o that CERN particle accelerator, ah widnea like their lecky bill.

Photons dinnea have mass, they play by different rules! Clever wee buggers, so they are.




Posted by: Heather 28th Nov 2009, 02:40pm

I also think it's possible there are other Planets out there and we are not the only people inhabiting this world.
As I don't know for sure, I keep an open mind about it.

The same applies to UFOs. They might exist, and it's possible we are being watched by people from another Planet taking note of what a mess we've made of Planet Earth and learning from our mistakes. unsure.gif

Posted by: eyebright 28th Nov 2009, 06:52pm

On Earth it is known for its good value skiing, its Black Sea resorts and its proud Slavic culture. But Bulgaria’s fame stretches far beyond our own planet, it seems: the country’s space research institute claims it is in contact with aliens.

And the researchers say they have already posed the extra-terrestrials 30 questions, one of which might have been: ‘Didn’t you think of getting in touch with Nasa first?’

Clearly the aliens’ in-flight movies during their trek across the Milky Way did not include any Hollywood blockbusters.

The Bulgarian researchers are now analysing pictograms contained in 150 crop circles which have appeared around the globe in the past year.

The team believe the field markings contain the answers to the posers they beamed into Space. Lachezar Filipov, deputy director of the space research institute, said: ‘Aliens are currently all around us and are watching us all the time.

They are not hostile towards us, rather, they want to help us but we have not grown enough in order to establish direct contact with them.

‘They are ready to help us but we don’t know what to request from them in case of contact.’

Mr Filipov said he believed humans and aliens would have direct contact in the next ten to 15 years. But it would be through telepathy rather than radio waves, he added.

Even then, we might not see eye-to-eye with them, he warned. Referring to our interference with nature, he said: ‘Extraterrestrials are critical of people’s amoral behaviour.’

And you all think the rest of the world is cloud cookoo land lol.

I believe there is a rational explanation for most of these sightings (note - not the ones which have been proved to be fake). However, one of the most famous we have had here in the UK happened in 1980 and is ranked as Britain's Roswell. This is the famous Rendlesham Forest incidents which happened between two air bases at the time used by the USA.

I watched a very interesting programme on the events, with eye witness accounts, and I have to admit I'm mystified by it - these witnesses all knew what they saw and experienced.

Posted by: Cash-Ma-Giro 13th Dec 2009, 02:24am

Carmella, I do not believe aliens or other forms of life exist and that includes, what others would term, "A Sighting".

I was driving from friends in Motherwell heading towards other friends in Bonnybridge.
Wifey and our then, three young, teenage children were in the car; autumn evening 1987.

We were driving along a quiet country road, it was dark and a shade cloudy. Unusually and noticeably, the sky was brighter on one section of the road.

We were singing away when, just above us and slightly ahead of us, a strange blueish/golden cigar shape object appeared. We, including the children, were not frightened or had a tendency to think it was an alien space ship, even though it "hovered" there for a considerable time.

We were intrigued, but knew it was simply a reflection in the sky.

Now, believers would certainly say "we had just experienced a sighting". That's fine if they are convinced of that, that's there belief.

One thing I always find comical is when people say they have seen an alien being, and go on to give a description of the thing.
The description always includes head, torso, arms and legs.
If there were aliens out there, and as far as I'm concerned there isn't, of some form, it seems to me they would not be of a form anyone could ever imagine.
However, even it there was life out there, they would be so far away that we would never reach them.

Now that is not me saying, well it may just be possible there is life out there. No no, I'm not suggesting that at all.

What I do believe though is, there are spirits around (out there if you like) and that's a completely different issue. It's possible that by me offering that thought, some people may very well be spooked, but it's no more spooky than seeing aliens, as least you can't see spirits biggrin.gif

Posted by: TeeHeeHee 13th Dec 2009, 02:36am

Cash, I'm not called Thomas for nothing but think of that description of torso arms and legs and then apply that to the wonderful abundance of life on our planet from the ant to those great prehistoric creatures which once inhabited the earth.
Life on other planets could be reasonably expected to consist of a great multitude of creatures with torsos arms and legs.
Handy for gettin' around ... even under water with a bit of evolutionary modification.
Or is evolution something you also don't believe in?

Now, you're belief teaches you that God created the Heavens and the Earth so that alone must tell you the He came from somewhere beyond that and when Jesus ascended into heaven it must have been somewhere outside of our solar system at least. And where was Ezekiel taken to when he transferred from the shuttle to the mothership?

But ghosts you can believe in?

I have seen strange things in the sky twice in my life. I don't know what they were, but the first time was over 20 years ago where I saw three objects coming together in the sky above Balornock. They remained stationery for around 10 seconds, the went off at speed in different directions at exactly the same time. Five years ago I also witnessed a strange event. On this occasion there was only one object, but performed the same task as the first, speeding up into the air at a rate of knots that was extremely fast and leaving no vapour trail behind.
I have no explanation for these events and don't know what I saw.
I have never seen little green men though!

Call me a cynic - and others have, but I do honestly believe that 'sightings' etc., have some very logical and rational origin for some other kind of phenomena that we just through the naked eye have no idea of.

Weather balloons etc., in some instances have been ruled out, but there are other atmospheric conditions which can cause these 'sightings'. What you saw was unusual, and Bonnybridge is famed for the huge amount of ufo's apparently.

Aliens visiting us, and people being abducted by aliens is not something which I can logically believe.
I'm a logical thinker, and my logic tells me that earth cannot possibly be the only inhabited planet in any galaxy, be it our own or others. But, can they come to visit us - I doubt this very much indeed.

SoL, WARP 1 <engage!> is a natural speed limit.

Due to the vast distances involved and the rarity of ecosystems required for intelligence life to develop, then to develop technology to transport at near light speed, get the githers are going to be a pretty remote chance. Wid be a hell o' waste of space if it was jist us loat here.

Noo then, if us loat screw the bubbin' an dinnea burn oot, blaw oorsel's tae buggery, maybe some time in the future, we will develop technology for interstellar travel, locally, at any rate. Small moves!

We need to shift from chemical propulsion to something a wee bit faster, like ion / photon drive, it will come, in useful form, in time.

I honestly think that we are not alone, we cannot be the only inhabited planet in the universe, the chances of that are remote. We are dealing with a vast expance of time and space. A lot of parameters have to be ticked for life, as we know, it to come into existance.

Earth is I would say unique in this locality of the Galaxy, but the galaxy is a pretty big place, mind there are quite a few others like it floating aroond the place.

Grab a star atlas, decent pair of binos, hip flask and get looking. Might need a tripod if yer a bit shoogly, like me, and thats jist the cuald that does it....

There's a bit of a debate going on in the internet regarding this story.
Is it an alien???? lol
The reported dates of the sightings have been conflicting. ie. this month or November.

So, all you Snope lovers, get digging. biggrin.gif


First report I read...
UFO enthusiasts, military analysts, and scientists around the world are looking for answers to bizarre early morning lights that were visible across the sky in Norway.
Visible for almost two minutes, the spiraling tail trailed a ball of moon-like light that captivated awestruck Norweigan at around 8:45 p.m. local time Wednesday 9th December. Although some would like to believe it was paranormal activity or an alien spaceship, the most likely answer to the cause of the mysterious light seems to be a Russian missile test gone wrong.


From The Sun (on-line)
By VIRGINIA WHEELER
and VINCE SOODIN

Published: 09 Dec 2009

A MYSTERIOUS giant spiral of light that dominated the sky over Norway this morning has stunned experts — who believe the space spectacle is an entirely new astral phenomenon.
Thousands of awe-struck Norwegians bombarded the Meteorological Institute to ask what the incredible light — that could be seen in the pre-dawn sky for hundreds of miles — could possibly be.

The phenomenon has been dubbed 'Star-Gate' — as the world's top scientists and the military lined up to admit they were baffled.
Theories ranging from a misfired Russian missile, meteor fireball, never-before-seen type of northern light, 'black hole' and even alien activity were all proposed.

Witnesses across Norway, who first glimpsed the space show at 8.45am, all described seeing a spinning 'Catherine wheel-style' spiral of white light, centred around a bright moon-like star.

A blue "streaming tail" appeared to anchor the spiral to earth, before the light "exploded" into a rotating ring of white fire.

The spiral spectacle — which lasted for two minutes — was seen by vast swathes of the Scandinavian country's almost five million population, with sightings as far north as Finnmark to Trondelag in the south.

Totto Eriksen, from Tromso, in northern Norway, was one of the thousands who bombarded Norwegian newspapers with sightings — after nearly crashing his car on spotting the spiral overhead.

He said: "I was driving my daughter to school when this light spun and exploded in the sky.

"We saw it from the Inner Harbour in Tromso. It looked like a rocket that spun around and around - and then went diagonally across the heavens.

"It looked like the moon was coming over the mountain - but then turned into something totally different.

"People just stopped and stared on the pier - it was like something from a Hollywood movie."

Axel Berg, from Alta, also in the north of the country, added: "It was like a giant spiral - a shooting star that spun around and around.

"I initially thought it was a projector but then the 'tail light' left and the spiral remained spinning still."

Norway's most celebrated astronomer, Knut Jorgen Roed Odegaard, said he had never seen anything like the spiral before.

He said: "This was seen over an exceptionally large area of the country - in all of north Norway and the Trondelag.

"My first thought was that it was a fireball meteor - but it lasted far too long.

"It may have been a missile from Russia - but I can't guarantee that is the answer.

"I rang the Air Traffic Control tower in Tromse. They said it was over in two minutes. To me, that is far too long for this to be an astronomical phenomenon.

"This spiral shape is unique. It is definitely not a variation of the aurora borealis - northern lights."

Chief Scientist Erik Tandberg, at the Norwegian Space Centre, said that he too was "totally amazed" by the spiral.

He agreed with many other experts that the spiral pattern could have been caused by a missile from Russia — something the Russian military have strongly denied.


Dr Tandberg said: "I agree with everyone in the science community that this light was the weirdest thing. I have never seen anything like this ever.

"It may have been anything from an exploding missile whose launch went wrong - to a comet or other celestial object that for some reason has been behaving strangely.

"If it was a missile - most likely from the launch base in Pletsevsk in Russia or one of the Russian submarines or even from the European Space Agency base in Kiruna - then we are talking about a rocket launch that has gone wrong.

"The spiral suggests the object came off course and balance and entered the spiral movement. Leaking rocket fuel could account for the blue light.

"But I know that the military have denied this explanation. So we could be looking at an entirely new natural phenomenon."

Meanwhile, Nick Pope, former UFO analyst for the Ministry of Defence, yesterday added that the Norwegian sighting was a "real mystery".

He said: "My first thought was this was a meteor, a fireball, or debris from an old satellite burning up in the earth's atmosphere.

"But the spiral motion makes this unlikely. This is truly bizarre. It's a real mystery.

"A meteor or a fireball would simply travel in a straight line but for something to spiral in this way appears to go against the laws of physics.

"Some may think it is the Northern Lights but they illuminate the sky with a green glow.

"This is completely different from any image of the Northern Lights that I have ever seen.

"It's ironic that something like this should happen the very week after the MoD terminated its UFO project. It just goes to show how wrong that decision was."

OK all you believers, here's something that'll raise your antennas.




Nearby Super-Earth May Be a Waterworld.
The planet was discovered using a suite of small, ground-based telescopes and is detailed in this week's issue of the journal "Nature".


A rocky and water-rich planet, not much heftier than our own, has been discovered so close to our solar system that astronomers one day may be able to study its atmosphere.
And though astronomers are pretty certain the water exists, they don't know its state, with speculations ranging from liquid water to water ice and an exotic state called a superfluid.

The extrasolar planet, now named GJ 1214b, is about 40 light-years away. It orbits a red dwarf star. It is the only known "Super-Earth" exoplanet — worlds that have masses between Earth and Neptune — with a confirmed atmosphere.

"Astronomically speaking, this [planet] is on our block," meaning it's in our cosmic neighbourhood, said study leader David Charbonneau of the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics in Mass. "For perspective, our own TV signals have already passed beyond the distance of this star."

The planet is about three times the size of Earth and about 6.5 times as massive. It is the second smallest planet discovered outside of our solar system to date, trailing behind only CoRoT-7b, which is 1.7 times Earth's size and about five times as massive.

GJ 1214b is rare among known rocky exoplanets because it partially eclipses, or transits, its star as seen from Earth.

This fortunate alignment allows astronomers to calculate the size and density of the planet, and Charbonneau's team thinks GJ 1214b is likely a water world with a solid centre. Moreover, the planet has a thick surrounding atmosphere of hydrogen and helium.

Normally, a planet located at that distance from this particular type of star would be so hot that any water on its surface would be in a vapour form.

But scientists think the thick atmosphere of GJ 1214b creates a high pressure environment that keeps water on the surface in a liquid state.

That's just speculation, however.

"It really depends on how hot the planet is on the inside, and we don't know that," Sara Seager, an astrophysicist at MIT, told SPACE.com. "I think this planet doesn't have liquid water because it is too hot on the inside. I think it goes from water ice, to a very exotic kind of water — a superfluid — and then it goes to vapour," added Seager, who just published a new eBook on exoplanets called "Is there Life Out There? The Search for Habitable Exoplanets."

(Seager was not involved in the new planet discovery.)

There are downsides to having such a thick atmosphere: First, the pressure is crushing, making life as we know it difficult. And secondly, the thick atmosphere blocks light from the feeble star from reaching the planet's surface.

"If you picture the sun as a 1,000-watt light bulb, this star is a 3-watt light bulb," Charbonneau said.

Whatever its exact composition, astronomers are excited about the finding. "We're really looking for a planet that's a big Earth orbiting in the Goldilocks zone of a small star, transiting," Seager said. "This one scores three out of four. We're excited because we're getting closer and closer to the thing we want to find." The missing piece: GJ 1214b doesn't orbit within the star's habitable, or Goldilocks, zone.

Why?
I find it strange; and I know a lot of folks here think I'm taking the fish when I say this but believe me, I do give serious thought to it, that in the Bible - which is described as the word of God - there is no mention of Gabriel coming across the great waters but rather descending from heaven and there is more recorded instances in this Book of Books of various prophets ascending up into heaven.
So does that not at least hint at some extra terrestrial technology in a time gone by?
Did God not forbid the first humans from interesting themselves in the fruits of knowledge?
Since we read that he did should we not ask why?
What did he not wish us to know?
And now that we know some of it where will it lead us?

I don't think the idea is hocus pocus although I agree that the various pictures posted on this thread are complete nonsense. rolleyes.gif

THH, good question that deserves an answer.......

God told Adam (and Eve when she arrived shortly afterwards) he could freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden except one "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil". If Adam ate from this tree, God told him he would die (Genesis 2:16,17).

Adam only knew goodness and happiness and God had given them all they required, placed them in a beautiful garden of delights and enchantment, then placed only one restriction on them:
Do not eat the fruit from "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil".

As they already knew good, eating from this tree would only provide knowledge of calamity, grief, and sorrow.

The word for knowledge is the ordinary word for knowledge or awareness. There is not the slightest indication that we should look for another meaning for knowledge. i.e. Further and beyond the awareness of good and evil.

How about the story of Alexander the Great and his close encounter recorded during his invasion of Asia in 329 where he and his army saw 2 gleaming silver shields coming out of the sky and swooping down towards them scattering horses and men in panic. They (the objects) must have changed sides later when in 336 while attacking a Venetian city in the Eastern Med both sides reported that objects appeared in the sky, one of which zapped the city wall ; which crumbled in dust, with a beam of light.
Alexander then took the city.
Well, he would ... wouldn't he?

28th February 2009 - video of 'ufo' over Dundee.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/politics/article7043937.ece

Bonnybridge seems to be the epicentre in Scotland for all these sightings - now, I wonder if the truth is out there!

The story of the US base is the one which always sticks in my mind - that story fascinated me and, I recall seeing a documentary on it, must admit it was interesting.

Now 30 years on they know what happened - according to http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/world-news/britains-most-famous-ufo-sighting-was-a-pile-of-blazing-dung_100243206.html

Being serious for a change. Some 30 years ago, I was on police patrol with another guy when we had a real 'UFO' experience late one night. We reported what we had seen by radio to HQ. The events that occurred after this are too awful to describe here. Some months later I had another experience near the same spot (in the area of 51deg01'22N / 0deg15'33E) on a bright sunny afternoon when I was alone. This time I kept it to myself. A lot of this stuff is made up rubbish, but you have my word that what Len and I experienced that night was real. I don't want to say any more about it.

Sorry, I can't honestly say any more, for numerous official and unofficial reasons. Suffice to say that this was not 'imagination' or 'hallucination' or any other 'ation', although we wondered if we were going crazy at the time. Nevertheless it happened. (twice) I'm not worried about being mocked - I had plenty of that from the sceptics at the time.

Farmers near Shrewsbury claim to have witnessed sheep being "lasered" by unidentified light from UFOs.
They have linked the unexplained incidents, where sheep's brains and eyes were removed, to the mysterious orange lights in the sky.

They have found sheep with "neat holes" while their brains and other internal organs were removed. Other animals have lost eyes or had their flesh "carefully stripped away" usually on the left side.

Phil Hoyle, 53, who has spent almost a decade investigating how the livestock have died, said the UFOs were found to have roamed a 50-mile "corridor" between Shrewsbury and Powys.

Mr Hoyle and 15 members of the Animal Pathology Field Unit, claimed they witnessed UFOs at work last month while working during the night at a Welsh hill farm near Radnor Forest.

"The technology involved in these attacks is frightening" he told The Sun.

"These lights and spheres are clearly not ours"

"They are built by technology and intelligence that's not from here."

He added: "For a short while it looked more like a Star Wars battle".

Next day he interviewed farmers and "all but one had some type of unusual disappearance of animals or deaths with strange injuries".

Well, I suppose, anything that looks similar to the objects in the images wee davey.

Arrogant to think otherwise! I used to think that too, but not any more, and you know what, you're the first person who's ever mentioned they thought so as well.

Must be an awful lot of missing hubcaps around the globe LOL.

Washington D. C. 1952. During the dawn of Ufology in the United States, unidentified flying objects made themselves known to the leaders of the free world in 1952, buzzing over the White House, the Capitol building, and the Pentagon. Seemingly the unknown objects were defying the very governmental agencies sworn to protect the United States from foreign powers. Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base picked up a number of UFOs on their radar screens on July 19, 1952, beginning a wave of sightings still unexplained to this day.

Posted by: TeeHeeHee 8th Apr 2010, 10:56pm

Cash I grew up with the Bible and still own two (one in German language) which I read at least once a week for a couple of hours though mainly in the Old Testament. I just have a different take on this great Almighty Being before whom we must all bow and show subservience ... Might as well do the Muslim noddin' dug bit an be done with it.
How did God get down here when He gave audience to Moses on the Mount?
Did He beam himself down?
Did He hop on the shuttle?
Whatever means He used He transported Himself from a Mothership ... and Ezekiel, if you believe your Bible like a man of the faith, gave a damned good description of gettin' to and from it; for a man of his time.
In my humble opinion, and from what the Holy Bible tells me, you can't believe in your God and not believe in his methods of transport between Heaven and Earth: And since we cannot readily identify them they must remain, for the moment, Unidentified Flying Objects.
My advice would be to stop wasting time looking at faked pictures of buttons and baking tins thrown up into the air and do some serious searching.
Since your a man of God, Cash, start with your Bible it's full of recorded wonders like Space travel and genetic manipulation; even a bit of artificial insemination too.
Wonderful wee book, Cash.

btw, I thought the thread was pulled before anyone got a chance to read it after that post.

Just want to say a couple of things as it's late and, No I'm not going to Google anything, as they say. lol.
I know you're keenly interested to discover your particular interest in the Bible, and I tell you, I'm impressed. It's not the norm nowadays, and you will eventually find your answers.

This is just a thought for you, sometimes when searching for proof in the Bible, go at it with the mind of disproving it. It's amazing what can come out of that approach.

Anyway, all the best THH.

I really need to get the head down now.

cheers,

Posted by: wee davy 11th Apr 2010, 02:15pm

Indeed I have a story to relate, cash. Although its not a '1st hand' one (although I HAVE seen some very strange sights in my time! lol) it is none the less from a fairly reliable source.

A little over 10 years ago, I was priveledged to attend a presentation, in a school hall, in deepest darkest Lancashire, given by two Russian Cosmonauts. One of whom still holds the record for the longest single stay 'Lost in Space' in the Mir Space Station. (Around 18 months if my memory serves me, correctly).

As I was in effect representing my company, my colleague & I were invited 'behind the scenes' to take tea/coffee & bisquits with them. This is a precise of what I wrote for the company newsletter.

Well, I've been a 'fan' of 'all things extra-terrestial' since I first fell aff the bottom step ae oor stair heid, an skint ma knee! I'll make no bones about it - and I'm not ashamed to say it - I was the original 'space geek'. However, having said that, both feet have firmly remained planted on terra-firma.

So, here is my tale.

After about an hour or so, of a 2 hour presentation, 'Sergei' (all names changed to protect the innocent lol) who was the better of the two English speakers, opened the floor to the public, for a QA session.

After a few pretty predictable 'stock' type queries - a fairly erudite young man stood up - and he posed the following question "Can you tell us whether there are 'other beings' out there?"
Now,... this question many of you will be thinking, is fairly typical of a 'stock' type question. But,
I can assure you it wasn't something they were particularly prepared for - as I found out later.

Immediately both Cosmonauts/Astronauts went into a huddle then Sergei thanked the young man, and asked him to take his seat again.

What follows is my recollection of their answer.

"Well,.." Sergie says "In order to answer your question, we have to tell you we have never met any 'little green men', yet!" Which of course elicited some laughter
"However, you will of course be aware, many of our colleagues have experienced a 'presence' of something, definitely not of THIS world (he emphasised) - and to this end - we are no different in our many trips together" (The russians deliberately followed a policy of pushing the human body to its limits, and are experts in the field).
He then described one of their most recent trips, where his colleague (for whom he translated the story) had remarked about seeing 'in effect' what we have come to describe, as UFO's. Well there were a few gasps from the audience at this - as you might expect.

Not only had they BOTH witnessed 'strange forms' appear - then disappear - but his colleague had the inexplicable sense of 'being observed' - which we can ALL relate to.

"So, .." Sergie concludes "All we can assure you, is,.. although we haven't seen 'them' with our own eyes .. we have come to believe we are DEFINITELY not alone in the Universe".

This tale, I have since learned - far from being an isolated one - has been a consistent feature of trips into space - and especially, with those who have to endure long periods of isolation. Check it out, if you don't believe me!

On meeting them, afterwards, I can assure you, they were two of the most genuinely warm, and least pretencious people, I have ever come across. After I cheekily cracked a joke about they're fairly large 'well fed' frames - (a testament to the ability of the human body to 're-constitute' after experiencing weightlessness for such long periods), My colleague and I said Dasvydania.

So,... there we have it my friends.

Personally?, all I'm going to say is, I don't have to be introduced to ET in order to be convinced. I do appreciate many people must have incontravertible PROOF backed up by scientific 'certainty', before they accept ANYTHING. Thats the way of the world smile.gif

I don't search for proof (neither to disprove) I try just to understand what the people of those far flung days were trying to describe; without the whole hocus pocus much as I would anything which I read.

Posted by: benny 11th Apr 2010, 05:07pm

I think, if you're genuinely trying to understand what the people of those far flung days were trying to describe, the "hocus pocus" is an essential part of that understanding. It wasn't "hocus pocus" to them, but an integral part of their everyday lives, just as belief in the Devil was to those living in the Middle Ages. All the religious baggage goes with the world view.

As far as UFOs go, yes, I believe in them. I suspect many of them may be electrical phenomena of some sort - many are merely described as lights - but that doesn't rule out the possiblity of visitors from afar.
One of my sisters saw a UFO in Dumbarton, of all places. She was walking her dog along the shore at Havoc when it happened - this would be the mid 1970's She said that it was elliptical in shape, multicoloured, with an orange "tail" protruding from the rear. She also said that she was terrified, moreso because all the normal sounds of everyday life seemed to have ceased.
I would never say we can place implicit trust in eyewitness statments, but I'm as sure as I can be of anything that my sister actually saw what she claimed. Whether it was a subjective or objective experience is another matter, although I have to add she has no history of hallucinations, either before or since.
On the other hand, I once knew a girl from Easterhouse who claimed that herself and boyfriend were abducted by aliens in the wee small hours of a Summer morning. I ask you - whit self respecting alien is gonnae land in Easterhouse when it's jist as easy tae land in Bearsden? smile.gif

Posted by: TeeHeeHee 11th Apr 2010, 05:26pm

Ok, hocus pocus was the wrong term and it's obvious that had I been around in the same day and age I wouldn't have been looking for logical explanations either, but what I meant was that I would be looking at the Bible instances today without the addition of the hocus pocus that some present day folks still wish to surround these stories with ( ... see. I've gone and used hocus pocus again when didn't want to rolleyes.gif )

Cash, if those objects faked into the pictures can be identified as rubber suckers then they cannot be classified as UFOs. See if you can try to find some pictures that us fly guys might consider as Unidentified Flying Objects and therefore bring some real interest to this thread which I thought; at first, might just be a bit interesting.

Well, as I've said many times THH, I posted them in for the interest of believers, of which I'm not.

The thread has just evolved from there with the usual progression of comments including those from believers. I've not gone back and read every comment, but from memory I don't recall anyone giving their opinion and confirming the images are genuine or not.

Nobody, I don't think, has actually said yes, they're 100% genuine or fake.
Now those, would be interesting posts to read.

I don't think that photographic evidence of the kind presented in books by UFO buffs is ever going to convince anyone that UFOs are real. The photos are generally of very poor quality, and those which aren't tend to be modern - an we aw know how easy it is tae fake a photie nooadays.

I think UFOs are a genuine phenomena which require an explanation, but alien lifeforms don't necessarily enter into it.

I know you took a guess at what you thought it may be and I would agree with you, but it just shows how easy it is for someone to claim they photographed a UFO.

The spoof is out there

Published: Today

UFO documents released yesterday have revealed a fake flying saucer incident sparked government fears of a full-scale ALIEN INVASION.

Our intelligence service, Army, RAF, four police forces and bomb disposal units were mobilised to tackle the potential threat as six grounded UFOs were found dotted across southern England.

But as British top brass braced themselves for a War Of The Worlds-style attack, it emerged that the 1967 scare was nothing more than an elaborate student hoax.

The incredible government response to this prank is one of the highlights of the largest ever disclosure of Ministry of Defence X Files, released by the National Archives yesterday.


Last night UFO expert Nick Pope, who investigated mystery air threats for the MoD, said: "The 1967 incident shows how seriously the threats were taken.

"In these new files UFO enthusiasts will be looking for the smoking gun that aliens exist.

"You can't say for definite that they provide this. But there is something for everyone in these files, whether you are a believer in extra-terrestrials or not.

"It is a real treasure trove of UFO information."

The released documents contain more than 8,500 pages of UFO sightings and reports, colour photographs and drawings, RAF investigations, unusual radar detections, Parliamentary briefings and - for the first time - details of government policy on UFOs.

Panic

None grab the attention quite like the MoD files revealing genuine concern of a UK alien attack on September 4, 1967.

For a period of around 12 hours, government officials feared the country was under attack after the discovery of six circular "spaceships" in fields across southern England.

One was blown up by a bomb squad, which prompted a chemical warfare team to be scrambled as the "ships" were filled with a foul-smelling liquid.

When police officers tried to move the spaceships they triggered a high-pitched bleeping sound, which caused further panic.

Eventually it emerged the saucers were a hoax by engineering students at an aviation school at Farnborough Technical College.

UFO documentary maker and author John Keeling unearthed just how concerned officials were when he quizzed the MoD for his forthcoming book How Big Are Little Green Men?

John said: "This caused the biggest 12-hour UFO incident in Britain. It involved the RAF, bomb teams and Scotland Yard.

"From the moment they found the first spaceship to the last one, which had to be blown up, it is the biggest single UFO alert ever.

"It was taken very seriously and even generated a chemical alert. The students were smart and plotted this meticulously. They put a switch on crafts so that if anyone tilted them, an alarm would go off.

"One was carried to a police station. When the alarm went off, the officers all fled."

Other National Archives files reveal jaw-dropping UFO incidents that are difficult to explain.

Images show a mystery orb hovering above a Lancaster Bomber during a flypast in Withernsea, East Yorks, as recently as August 2004.

In 1990 an RAF Tornado crew was so stunned when a UFO appeared in front of them, they failed to lock radar on to it.

Without warning, the UFO, as big as a C-130 Hercules plane, appeared over the North Sea. The pilots said they had "never seen anything like it".

On December 27, 2000, at 9.32pm, Woolwich UFO Research Group took a series of pictures of flickering lights hovering above what is now The O2 Arena. And on April 16 1978, the RAF were bombarded with 17 reports of extra-terrestrials zipping across southern England, prompting them to launch an investigation.

Documents from the previously-classified records reveal that UFOs were discussed at the highest level around the world, including at the United Nations and the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

In January 1979 - in the middle of the Winter Of Discontent - the House Of Lords broke off from trade union strike discussions to talk about UFOs - the only full debate on the subject ever held in Parliament.

In December 1977, the government used its influence to talk down a call by Grenada president Sir Eric Gairy for a UN agency to conduct research into UFO sightings.

In terms of diagrams included in the released files, a pencil drawing of a Y-shaped craft was sent to the MoD after it was seen over the Thames Barrier.

Pulped

A saucer-shaped UFO was also spotted in South Wales, while in Liverpool a detailed drawing of a triangular craft was made and reported to the MoD.

In Scotland, a detailed sketch of a flying ship was done, complete with a lake and surrounding land. There have also been cries of an intelligence cover-up after it emerged documents relating to the UK's most famous UFO sighting at Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, in 1980 have been DESTROYED.

The sighting of a spaceship there was documented in files covering 1980-1982 which were mysteriously pulped.

An intelligence paper dated January 2002 reads: "If this were made public, it could be interpreted as a deliberate attempt to eradicate records covering the incident."

The documents - released in response to a flurry of requests through the Freedom Of Information Act - also reveal MoD fears that one public request for information, made in the run-up to the 9/11 attacks of 2001, could give terrorists clues on how UK airspace was monitored.

Dr David Clarke, author of The UFO Files and senior lecturer in journalism at Sheffield Hallam University, said: "They feared that their answers could reveal official secrets to an enemy."

The files are available to download for free for a month from the nationalarchives.gov.uk/ufos.

So you can try to work out for yourself which are the truths and which are the spoofs.

The ballistic missile tracking station at Fylingdales in North Yorkshire is probing outer space all the time. it often picks up unidentifed whatevers and as it tries to identify them it categorises them using security warnings from 1 to 10 and either upgrades or downgrades the threat until it establishes what it is. If it gives a high security warning and the object turns out to be 100% harmless the computer actually makes an apology for it's error.

Jimmy Carter might no hiv been crazy, but he wis surrounded by nuts. He wis a peanut farmer at wan time. smile.gif

Wan o ma sisters saw a UFO in Dumbarton in the 1970's, while she wis oot walkin the dug doon at the seashore.
This particular sister is anythin but other worldly, she's very matter of fact, an ah believe she saw whit she said she did. Nae wee green men, or flyin hubcaps wi portholes in them, jist a long, cigar shaped, bright light of different colours, hovering in the sky for a few minutes then shootin away at tremendous speed.
She said she wis terrified, but cannae explain why, an she also said that everythin roon aboot her went silent durin the sightin.

Of course there are UFOs trouble is you can only see them in the U.S.A. Cant even see them in Canada or Mexico.

Posted by: Dunvegan 25th Jun 2011, 07:53am

Ufologists are much the same as spiritualists and conspiracy theory addicts." if you cant prove it, there must be something in it. How come Europeans don't have a vast history of alien abduction?

First time i ever heard of alien abductions was coming here and hearing about a SA woman who wrote a book about being abducted and impregnated by an alien in the 50's.

Mexico city in the past 10 years has been the location of the largest UFO sightings in history with numerous videos of the UFO's taken at the same time all over the city by different people.

In fact, the UFO phenomenon is worldwide. Some countries generate more reports than others, which could be for a variety of reasons, but there are plenty of reports from both Canada and Mexico.

Canada:

Mexico:

Note the disclaimer at the head of these pages:

"Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO."

Even so, this is only one source of alleged UFO sightings.

I'm very much of an unbeliever where alien abductions are concerned. That is, I don't believe that people are actually being abducted by aliens, but there is certainly something going on - even if it's only a huge upsurge in the number of pathological liars - which needs explaining.

There is a certain amount of overlap between various fringe groups in the area of occult/psychic/UFO matters, but that doesn't in itself automatically invalidate any, or all, of them.
Science has been wrong many times in its history, and even the keystone of E=mc squared may one day crumble.

Science as you are always at pains to point out Benny, has been wrong many times in the past. How ever the unscientific have always been wrong and will continue to be so in the future.

Posted by: benny 26th Jun 2011, 10:56am

That depends on what you mean by "unscientific", Dunvegan. Almost everyone knows of the classic example of the "unscientific" hummingbird, which shouldnae be able tae fly according tae the rules of classic aerodynamics. The hummingbird disnae know this though, so it carries on flyin regardless.

Then, of course, there wis the "unscientific" Semmelweiss and his theory aboot washin yer hands efter dissecting cadavers, before ye dae a gynaecological examination. Aw his fellow physicians who poo-pooed the idea have been proven wrong, and his "unscientific" approach shown tae be right.

Heavier than air flight, space travel, Continental Drift - aw "unscientific" nonsense accordin tae scientists of the day, but aw accepted withoot thinkin nooadays.

A merr recent example is the helicobacter pylori explanation for the majority of stomach ulcers. Doctors knew it wis a loada "unscientiific" piffle, and that ulcers were really caused by stress, or spicy food. Guess whit - the "unscientific" guy wis right efter aw, and the medical establishment wis wrang.

The catalogue of "unscientific" people who got it right is - if no endless - at least substantial.
