Aliens anyone?

The subject of aliens is one that will get an often heated conversation going in a New York minute. Opinions range from “they live and walk among us” to “it’s all a silly hoax,” with a broad range of views in between. Where do you stand and why?

  1. Hi all, Growing up in India and learning about the culture has definitely strengthened and solidified my belief in E.T’s , our ancient books “The Ramayana” and the “Mahabharata” definitely deals with advanced Science and aliens, if we think about it correctly. Going through the Mahabharata and the Ramayana has opened my eyes about Spaceships which visited earth many thousands of years ago, ancient astronauts and advanced scientific weapons. It definitely deals with the Bramha astra or the atomic bomb.. and many weapons wihich we have iconified due to lack of evidence, we in India thought that they are magical weapons , but they are not.. these may have been weapons and advanced scientific technology frm outer space which came in contact with the earth inhabitants of that time.We learnt from the aliens and we have built our own.

    There’s a total lack of data, for this topic. Speculation — some of which will be based on personal fantasy, cultural myths, or religion — is all we have. This is a arena of contemplation filled with physicists, astronomers, chemists, and science-fiction writers; I suspect the science-fiction writers are the ones best suited for this work. When I see some evidence of life out there, I’ll believe it’s out there. Until there’s evidence, I’ll just hope. Hope that there’s something else alive, but also hope that there’s life that will play chess with me.

      Thank you, I’ve recently been srehcaing for information about this subject for a long time and yours is the best I have came upon till now. But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive concerning the source?|What i don’t realize is actually how you are now not really a lot more smartly-favored than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.

    It’s a mighty big universe out there, folks. And as Carl Sagan used to say there are “billions and billions” of stars in it. Many of them have planetary systems. If only a tiny fraction of these were capable of supporting the development of life that would be a huge number of posible “life spawning” planets. So, I don’t have any problem believing in the POSSIBILITY of life elsewhere in the universe. But, they may not (and most likely would not) look much like humans.
    They might be so far advanced beyond us that we would be like lower animals in their sight. In fact, in order to even get to our planet from wherever they call home, they most likely would be advanced far beyond us. For them, coming to earth to see us living in our natural habitat might be like we go on a photo expedition to Africa just to see the wild animals living there.

    I’m going to resend the invite to anyone I know. This is a great and controversial subject. Deb Day’s remarks give us a distinctly “non-western” viewpoint that is worthy of serious consideration. There is an assumption implicit in the western scientific viewpoint that tends to disdain the past as being a dark and ignorant time, while the present is bright and enlightened. I have watched this in my own lifetime as what was accepted truth evolves into accepted untruth. For this reason, we tend to dismiss the mythologies of the ancients as being nothing but superstition, as unscientific. However, the human model has not changed during recorded history. There is no reason to assume that we are smarter than our forebears simply because we use cell phones. If indeed ancient astronauts visited Earth, they might well have been reported as “godlike” by the folks who were around at that time.
