Aliens...What's next?


| 5 Comments

For centuries now, researchers, experts and the common man alike have all been trying to put answers to questions when discussing one of the oldest phenomena known to man.  I'm talking, of course, about extraterrestrial beings or what we common folk may refer to as, aliens.  Do they exist?  Have they visited Earth?  Where do they come from?  What do they look like?  These are questions that for some may have never even been discussed; yet for others, it's the pinnacle of their everyday thought.  Whichever category you fall into, there is no denying that about 99.99 people in this world have thought about potential answers to these questions, or been around others who have.  I'm not here to put more thoughts into anyone's minds.  I just want to merely shed some of the light on the matters to those who may belief their opinion on this phenomena could be the correct one. 

For those that have researched extensively on the matter of aliens, you would know that reports of extraterrestrial activity in the sky are nothing new.  Some of the best pieces of evidence humans have gathered of alien existence date back to 1561 in Nuremburg, Germany where multiple woodcarvings depicted several aircrafts in the sky with huge lights attached to them seeming engaged in some type of battle or war.  Some even showed smaller discs and spheres emerging from larger objects in the sky.  It leaves us modern citizens to wonder; what if they knew something we did not back then? 

Since that time, there have been tens of thousands of reported UFO or unidentified flying object sightings around the globe.  Heck, I remember a time only a few years ago where I could have been sure that I saw a UFO in the sky.  However, unlike many of the common man who have sworn these sightings were real, I have accepted that what I saw was most likely not extraterrestrial.  For some experts however, it is quite a different story all together.  Some of these unexplained sightings have occurred in environments monitored and witnessed by this country and planet's top authorities.  In 1973, America sent who was considered the 3 finest astronauts into space, including the first scientist in space, Owen K. Garriott.  On their aircraft, the Skylab III, they observed an unidentified aircraft while outside the Earth's atmosphere.  Garriott himself took pictures of the object, and estimated it to be over 800 feet in length.  Since the time, he wrote articles in novels depicting his experiences.  In 1953, Kelly Johnson, the CIA's lead aircraft engineer, along with his chief crew, witnessed a 200 ft long V shaped aircraft hovering motionless around the Santa Barbara Channel.  In an instant, the aircraft turned northwest and took flight in an upward direction which Johnson himself described as technology in which this country did not possess.  Later on, the government issued a report stating what Johnson and his crew saw was a stationary black cloud.  Like many others, I believe that the government would not employ a man, who could not tell the difference between a cloud and an aircraft, as their lead spy craft engineer.  This just one of the many prime examples in which lead experts and army officials have witnessed unexplained phenomena, which have continued to defy explanation.  In Tehran, Iran, 1976, two fighter crafts were scrambled to go after an object, which was thought to be a UFO.  On separate occasions, the fighter crafts lost all systems as they approached the object from 25 miles away.  The second pilot then explained how he saw the UFO take off at what he described as "several times the speed of sound."  M.C.S Stanton Friedman states " the fact that anybody can cause a sophisticated military aircraft to lose all systems at their whim...that's scary."

Whether you believe in aliens or not, there is no denying that there is evidence out there.  The most troubling part is that a select few of these sightings are coming from top officials in the world, and not just the town drunks.  At this point, it is easy to look back on these incidents as well as the most famous others such as the supposed UFO crash near Area 51 or the McMinnville photos, and ask ourselves, what is going on with extraterrestrial beings beyond our planet, and what, if anything, is next?

Being a skeptic when it comes to aliens, it would take a lot to convince me. Most of the time when a sighting is reported, I am quick to disclaim the reporter as either insane or an attention-seeking. Therefore your blog kind of surprised me. I never realized that legitimate scientists and professionals had put their reputations on the line to make such claims. In my mind it makes their claims more legitimate as they actually have something to lose by saying they saw a UFO. I did a little research to see if I could find any other more reputable claims, and what I found actually surprised me again. In 1987, former president Ronald Reagan admitted to the General Assembly that he had seen an UFO. Although he may have had a political agenda with his claim, as he even said in the speech that he believed worldwide differences would be settled if the world had to face an alien threat, it is still interesting that he would put his reputation on his line by publicly making such a claim. Maybe there is more to UFO sightings than I previously thought.

this comes down to a matter of judgement. I mean can you honestly trust the media or your friend I mean unless that person has a great understanding with aerodymanic vehicles and explain to you why what he saw was not from military aircraft then that is different. also, what about area 52? the government is always testing new military air-crafts and hey even the Germans had a saucer shaped vehicle and tried to test it to see if it works. so that reporting could be just military testing mistakes.

I'm still a little bit skeptical about the existence of aliens, but this swayed my opinion a bit. There is so much evidence that there could be some form of extra-terrestrials. All of your examples lead me towards believing a little bit more. It's not as if these people making these claims are random people off the street, they are well respected members of their field. I find it extremely hard to believe that they would put their reputation on the line for something they are making up. One of the smartest men alive and one of the most respected scientists in the world, Stephen Hawking, has publicly announced his belief in aliens. I'm not going to base my opinion solely off one person. Nor will I ever truly believe in aliens until i see evidence first hand, but you made me less doubtful.

Nicholas, you bring up a great point about area 51 and the testing aircrafts. However, there a couple things to consider. Firstly, there was an incident in 1947 known as the Roswell UFO incident in which the United States apparently discovered a saucer like object, and the alien pilots. This was about the same time or a little before these German aircrafts you speak of were being developed, so maybe the German engineered crafts could have been based on the one recovered at Roswell. Second is that like I said in the article, there are a couple cases, including the one of Kelly Johnson, which are documented and experienced by the highest of officials this country had to offer at the time. If there was any possibility of an aircraft with superior technology at the time when Johnson was developing his crafts, he would have known. It is hard to say for that one that it would have been a testing or developmental accident. However, like most of the great debates out there, this topic is all up to personal opinion.
