Re: The Main Reasons Why Aliens Don't Exist
Government wants it to be secret, like Area 51. if there is any real photoes the government would just get it blocked. there are MANY billions planets in the universe, maybe unlimited. Common sense tells us that we aren't the only advanced race in the universe. if you spent your entire lifetime you won't even be able to count every solar systems in our galaxy.

Re: The Main Reasons Why Aliens Don't Exist
Couple of my questions/comments:

1. Interstellar travel must be quite easy for some of them; otherwise, why would they send pilots? For long journeys, if you were an advanced species, wouldn't you just send a drone?

2. Imagine other forms of intelligent life that don't need technology to travel or communicate. Think of interstellar dolphins or whales (let us NOT go down the Star Trek rabbit hole on this one!), advanced beings who can think their way through the universe. If they wanted.

3. As a Christian, I cannot understand how some Christians will turn God into a Trickster God with all these deceptions up His sleeve in order to explain how something COULD NOT happen. Dinosaur bones? God planted them there to trick people into believing Evolution. WHY??? Aliens? Those are demons that God is allowing to trick people into believing in life on other planets. WHY???

4. An elaborate three-day conference is held in the world's most luxurious hotel. 5000 of the world's most intelligent, accomplished, sophisticated and wealthy people are there, discussing the most sublime topics. As an immigrant woman working as a maid is cleaning a toilet, her son calls on her cell phone and tells her that he discovered a spider web under the stairs that morning.

THAT is how significant it would be in the vast reaches of the universe if a radio signal were to be received from earth.

5. Earth just might be one of the proving grounds for intergalactic pilots to practice their entry and escape manuevers. Tunguska was the equivalent of a B-52 with nukes on a training mission going kerplowey.

6. Think about the wide range of capabilities reflected in the different levels of our planetary civilization. Think of the last remnants of indigenous people in the Amazon. Now think of the U.S. with its latest superduper spy rocket. I'm sure that same range, and beyond, exists in our universe.

7. Parallel universes; timeslips; portals; dimensional shifts; string theory; foldable universes; multiple simultaneous and divergent versions of a single universe; helium (always good to throw helium into any argument); multiple simultaneous and divergent versions of multiple simultaneous and divergent universes.

8. pausing to catch my breath . . .

9. Hackable universes . . . think about it . . .

And people think that aliens don't exist.

They do, but I think they largely really really really don't care about us. I mean, yeah, three or four might . . .

which means . . .

I dunno, maybe we are like the North Korea of the particular part of the universe where we call home. Maybe the other intelligent life forms have been monitoring us, thinking WTF? W T F?? What are they DOING??? I mean, if you were an advanced species and you saw us mucking about, wouldn't that be your first impulse? And so maybe whoever is out there has been trying to figure out how to solve the problem of the Earthlings.

Re: The Main Reasons Why Aliens Don't Exist
1. If the government knew, or a number of people knew aliens existed, why aren't there more people coming forward trying to capitalize on it by selling books, movie deals, or interview time.

2. How come all the videos are blurry clips that only last a few minutes.

3. How come whenever a picture is released, only one is released and it's usually a little blurry. You would think that someone who just happened to have a camera around when a spaceship flies by would take more than one picture. And on top of that, you'd think they'd claim rights to it and sell the pictures.

4. How come there aren't occurences that are caught on film while filming live on tv. You would think they'd capture that occasionally.

5. How come all aliens look the same, as in movie aliens. Is it because if they looked liked demons, or what society thinks a demon looks like, they wouldn't believe in aliens? You'd instead be proving demons exist.

----------------------------------------------------

I'm skeptical, these are my main reasons for not believing in the alien hype. If you have some more reasons for not believing in aliens, please add them to see how others are justifying excusing these common reasons why aliens don't exist.

The Extraterrestrial Presence in our World Today: What You Aren’t Being Told
[link to www.collective-evolution.com]

Below is a revealing interview with Dr. Charles Halls describing some of his experience in the Military and their dealings with various alien species. One of the alien species he has dealed and he goes into the most detail about he describes as the “The Tall Whites”, which he says live up to 10 times longer than humans (600 to 800 years old). He also dealed with the “Roswell Grays”. You’ll also see a photo of a Tall White being in the video.
The video below provides much more descriptions on the various extraterrestrial species the US Military has worked with and the extent of information transferring and cover-up.

First off, listen to common sense. WE EXIST, WHY CAN'Y THEY? Second off, I completely agree with Spine Monkey back a few posts.

Yeah, if WE are the most advanced species in this universe, let's face it, we are SO SCREWED! And so are the other, less intelligent beings that are going down in the crossfire with us.

And, to sum up, the government is covering this stuff up. I mean, you're using the internet, go look up Majestic 12, or the Blue Planet Project. I could keep going...

Re: The Main Reasons Why Aliens Don't Exist
There are billions and billions of stars out there and around each star are any number of planets of which could support life and you think we are the only planet that got lucky. We have found earth like planets out there and we know Mars once had water and could have supported life so I would wake up to the fact that we aren't alone and once we have space travel we will discover intelligent life.

As for aliens here,who knows maybe we are being conditioned so the majority don't freak out and the reason they are showing the same types in movies is to acclimate us to those species. Don't forget we are an intelligent,violent,young race and any contact at this stage in our development could be more harmful than good.

Re: The Main Reasons Why Aliens Don't Exist
Several of you are saying that demons pose as aliens to make us think that God doesn't exist. From what I can tell, you are speaking from a Christian perspective, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, the existence of aliens DOES NOT contradict the Bible. Why would God create the whole entire universe and only put life on one planet? If we are the only life forms in the whole entire universe why wouldn't God just create The Earth, our moon, and the sun.

You believe that the Bible is the inherent word of God. You believe that God spoke to several prophets who then wrote what God told them to, and that these writings were later compiled to form the Bible. Why, then, is it so hard for you to believe that God could have spoken the same thing to hundreds of other prophets on hundreds of other worlds?

We are actually quite unique. In fact we are made in the image/likeness of God Himself.

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

That's a profound statement if you think about it for a moment. God created the universe in such a way to show his great power. Also keep in mind that He is going to destroy the universe as we know it upon Christ's return. This makes no sense if there really were other creatures out there but of course there is not so it makes perfect sense.

Re: The Main Reasons Why Aliens Don't Exist
Stupid thread. Who says 'aliens' have anything to do with UFO sightings or alien sci fi fantasies?

Since someone saw Obama suck another mans penis, transsexuals dont exist.. I dont understand your logic.

The truth is, whether you acknowledge it or not, is that 'aliens' are not alien. They are not a remote race from another galaxy that periodically gets caught trying to learn from us... Thats where the deception starts. Why would they automatically call a non human intelligence 'alien'? To throw people off from the truth. The concept that these being exist only in space ships that came from another planet has no basis anywhere except for fantasy and means of intentional deception as to the true nature of these entities.

I have two theories about this one. Keep in mind that I am a Christian, however; I am more open minded and reasonable than most. In any case, My theories are 1) The Apocrypha- Several books that were removed from the Bible because they were deemed uninspired by God. Who's to say that the beginning of Genesis was also not inspired by God? We are still not sure who wrote it or when, and there is substantial evidence that the earth is much older than many Christians claim. The beginning of Genesis could very well be a myth passed down orally, Just like many other creation stories. Before the Bible was fully compiled and before some of the books were even written there were many questions that the Jews, no doubt, had. The priests were the only ones that, the Jews thought, could answer their questions. The beginning of Genesis could be nothing more than the nervous, and quite fabricated, response of one priest that was asked about the creation. His response, in their minds, was quite reasonable(For the time period), and it could have spread rapidly and became popularized. 2) That beings on other world are also, in fact, made in His own image.

You have a different authority if you do not believe the whole bible is the word of God. I do, so therefore my original statement stands.

Also as a Christian you are aware that God the Son came in the flesh as a human (not an alien) to save many humans (not aliens) from eternal separation from Him due to our sins.

Re: The Main Reasons Why Aliens Don't Exist
there are 100-400 billion stars (the wide discrepency is because brown dwarfs are hard to detect) in our galaxy alone, and there are billions if not trillions of galaxies the size of the milkyway or bigger. In my opinion, it's basically impossible for life NOT to exist somewhere in the universe if not in our own galaxy.

BUT. I don't think that aliens have ever visited earth. because the interstellar distances between stars are too vast to allow for travel as we know it. maybe if they had some kind of light speed travel. even then, they would only be able to travel to local stars. otherwise they will run into issues of fuel consumption.

also since they would have to be local, we would have been able to detect them by now, since they would probably be thousands of years more "advanced" than us, their planet would have been throwing radio signals into space just as ours has so we should have been able to detect them by now.

but we've heard nothing but radio silence (other than natural radio signals produced by black holes and such) I can only assume that there are no alien civilizations near enough to the earth for practical travel.

there are 100-400 billion stars (the wide discrepency is because brown dwarfs are hard to detect) in our galaxy alone, and there are billions if not trillions of galaxies the size of the milkyway or bigger. In my opinion, it's basically impossible for life NOT to exist somewhere in the universe if not in our own galaxy.

BUT. I don't think that aliens have ever visited earth. because the interstellar distances between stars are too vast to allow for travel as we know it. maybe if they had some kind of light speed travel. even then, they would only be able to travel to local stars. otherwise they will run into issues of fuel consumption.

also since they would have to be local, we would have been able to detect them by now, since they would probably be thousands of years more "advanced" than us, their planet would have been throwing radio signals into space just as ours has so we should have been able to detect them by now.

but we've heard nothing but radio silence (other than natural radio signals produced by black holes and such) I can only assume that there are no alien civilizations near enough to the earth for practical travel.

Why would you say that? Just because there is no proof of aliens does not mean they don't exist. Black holes were purely theoretical for many years. now we observe them on a regular basis. So why do you think that in all of the hundreds of trillions of planets in the universe that we alone are unique?

Re: The Main Reasons Why Aliens Don't Exist

We are actually quite unique. In fact we are made in the image/likeness of God Himself.

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

That's a profound statement if you think about it for a moment. God created the universe in such a way to show his great power. Also keep in mind that He is going to destroy the universe as we know it upon Christ's return. This makes no sense if there really were other creatures out there but of course there is not so it makes perfect sense.

I have two theories about this one. Keep in mind that I am a Christian, however; I am more open minded and reasonable than most. In any case, My theories are 1) The Apocrypha- Several books that were removed from the Bible because they were deemed uninspired by God. Who's to say that the beginning of Genesis was also not inspired by God? We are still not sure who wrote it or when, and there is substantial evidence that the earth is much older than many Christians claim. The beginning of Genesis could very well be a myth passed down orally, Just like many other creation stories. Before the Bible was fully compiled and before some of the books were even written there were many questions that the Jews, no doubt, had. The priests were the only ones that, the Jews thought, could answer their questions. The beginning of Genesis could be nothing more than the nervous, and quite fabricated, response of one priest that was asked about the creation. His response, in their minds, was quite reasonable(For the time period), and it could have spread rapidly and became popularized. 2) That beings on other world are also, in fact, made in His own image.

You have a different authority if you do not believe the whole bible is the word of God. I do, so therefore my original statement stands. Concerning age, carbon dating is nothing but a guess and is only accurate as far as written word goes back. Also it is my belief that God created the earth with age to confound the wise. After all, Adam and Eve were created as full grown adults not babies.

Destroying the universe at the end is in multiple books/chapters of the bible. Are we to toss those out as well because we don't like what it says? It makes no sense to punish "aliens" on other planets for mans sins. Also as a Christian you are aware that God the Son came in the flesh as a human (not an alien) to save many humans (not aliens) from eternal separation from Him due to our sins.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 48678869

Which one? Apocrypha and all? There are seven books that have been removed. Who is to say that The beginning of Genesis was added on to the original(Cain and Abel, Noah, ark ect.)? We don't even know who wrote it or when.

As far as punishing aliens goes, who is to say that they don't have the same information(The Bible) that we do?
