The following is an extremely delicate subject, even for those of you who believe in astrology and metaphysics. Fair warning: your perception of reality is about to undergo a shift.
“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. There is no doubt in my mind that these objects are interplanetary craft of some sort. I and my colleagues are confident that they do not originate in our solar system.” ~ Physicist, Hermann Julius Oberth, PhD (1894-1989; The father of modern rocketry) Other quotes from famous personages in regard to UFOs
UFOs. Extraterrestrials. Many think that those who are part of the ‘aliens-are-out-there’ culture, must have a few screws loose. But do we really? Well, ok, so maybe I’m not a good example. But there are many other very credible individuals who believe, as well, because they’ve seen something with their own eyes. In fact, collective groups of credible people, some of whom are ex-presidents, have witnessed UFOs. Is it all mass hallucination? Are we all crazy?
I’ve always found it difficult to believe in what I was taught regarding humanity being the Crown of Creation. In my estimation, it’s impossible that we’re the only complex, intelligent life in this multiverse. Let’s be logical: how could we be the only complex life? Why would we be, considering the age of the visible universe and its potential to exponentially replicate, seemingly even far past 186,000 miles per second – the speed of light (which is theoretically impossible)? Hasn’t there been more than enough time for complex life to have evolved in other parts of the universe as well? And the universe is still expanding.
How many more billions of planets, suns, solar systems and galaxies have we detected even since Hubble lent his name to the massive space telescope in 1990, than we knew about during the pre-historic and neo-historic age of astronomy? It seems to me that the opportunity for finding complex life in other parts of the solar system, not to mention the rest of the universe, is staring us in the collective face.
And yet, for whatever reason, many still cling to their archaic belief in a human-centered view of the cosmos. There’s absolutely no way, in their estimation, that life exists which is more intelligent than humans or who just might be out there watching as this nursery of toddlers finally makes its way out of the planetary crib.
Why are we so stuck on believing that we’re the only ones here, the only intelligent life in existence?
This seems to me to be the epitome of arrogance and selfishness; the last desperate act of children who are unwilling to share their part of the playground with the outsider.
Ironically, the majority of these same individuals who refuse to believe that we might not be alone, are the same ones who haven’t thought about the fact that God – if he does exist – is technically an extraterrestrial.
And what is science now saying about this phenomenon? Could it truly be possible that...we are not alone?
Intelligent extra-terrestrials almost certainly exist on distant planets beyond our solar system, leading British astronomers told the government yesterday.
The scientists expect that the first evidence of primitive alien life, such as microbes and vegetation, will emerge within 10 years, with more substantial finds following future space missions. Read More Here
Science has the power to harness energy, allow human flight, help cure the sick, and explain much about the world. But as amazing and beneficial as science is, it cannot explain everything. Scientists may never know exactly how the universe began, or help to settle matters of faith. The same is true for the paranormal world. Though science can explain many strange phenomena, some mysteries remain to be solved--often because there is simply not enough information to reach a definitive conclusion. Some of these phenomena may one day be fully understood, as many things that were once mysterious or unexplained (such as the causes of disease) are now common knowledge. --Benjamin Radford Read More Here
