    Alien life, do you believe?

    Because you saw something? Maybe what you thought was a UFO? What you thought might be an Alien? Please post your experience, I for one will not laugh or make fun of you, I take this stuff really seriously.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I believe because it is a mathematical improbability not to have other life forms in the universe. I don't believe they live among us. I don't believe they have visit the earth.

    I've seen a lot of UFO's in Arizona, one in Michigan. I have seen no reason to believe they aren't US government or otherwise very well funded electro magnetic projects that are from earth.

    I do however believe in life on other planets. It would be incredibly ignorant to think we're the only intelligent life in the universe.

    Exactly, but I contend that any potentially space-faring space critters out there would take one look at our primitive savage little planet and give it a broad pass. Like tourists avoiding the seedy parts of towns.

    I believe that this planet is either a ant farm for an unknown entity or that there is a Star Fleet like Prime Directive in effect.

    Once when my kids were both young we were all sleeping when the home alarm went of, I got up and grabbed my handgun and checked my kids, they told me they were alright so I went down to the control pad and it showed that the alarm sounded from the window in my youngest daughters room being opened! so I run back up and sure enough its open about 4 inches? I asked her why she opened it and she told me she didn't, I believed her as I was sure that she couldn't as she was not strong enough or even tall enough to reach the lock, I locked the window up and went out and checked all around the house...nothing, so to be sure we tell her to sleep with us, thats when she told us this story, she said she woke up to find what she called a "small alien" on her math book on the desk at the end of her bed! she told us it was small and grey like a squirrel, and it was squatting down with its arms wrapped around its legs, she told us that she turned on the light and it turned its head and looked at her, and smiled then turned its head and kept looking at the math book, she said she hid under the sheets and that when the alarm went off! True story, no bull****!

    I've never experienced anything to make me believe. But there are a heck of a lot of stars out there, and I expect a lot more planets. The odds that we're the only life in the universe are probably slim to none.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Chupacabra! Just messin' don't be scared, those were just movies, from what my daughter described they didn't seem to be scary at all.

    what was a 4 year old doing with a math book? Math is a deadly serious matter, and should not be left where children can get to it.

    If I tell you why my kid was in your kid's room, it could get ugly for both of us. I like it on your planet and I keep sending in stuff I tape off tv as my "reports" on civilization. I do not know if the harvest ships are staying away out of fear or pity. either works for me.

    Believing in alien life is what gives us hope.
    Imagine the depression that would be brought on if we had to think the idiocy that passes for intelligent life on earth is the best there is.

    actually believing in a "maker" is what gives you all hope.
    Imagine the depression that would be brought on if we had to think the idiocy that passes for intelligent life on earth just popped up out of some primordial ooze.

    Well, I would have a pretty low opinion of a maker that created such idiocy.

    So the window alarm did not go off until after the thing had gotten inside and was sitting on her desk? I wouldn't trust that alarm system.

    believe it or not thats exactly what I thought, and to this day I can't figure out if the alarm going off had anything to do with it, but its the way it happened, I could change it around to make it sound as if it went off when the thing left, but thats not how it went down.

    Yes.

    We are not the only "life" out of the primordial soup that came about.
