Proof of Aliens?

    Emile Rposted 6 years ago

    I don't know whether it is or it isn't; but I found this article fascinating.  There is supposed to be a documentary coming out in 2012 that will show proof of aliens. They claim to have photo evidence and the backing of an archeologist that the one picture of a monument shown in the article could be as old as 7000 years old.

    They claim that, in their documentary; individuals, scientists, archeologists and governments are going to share knowledge of alien contact. They also claim Stephen Hawking is behind them on this.

    Has anyone heard anything about this?  Is this some kind of a hoax, or are these guys for real?


    More importantly, what do you think the outcome will be if we find proof of intelligent alien life?

      I don't have a single doubt about aliens around the Universe, many people have told me stories about, like unexplainable events. I'm very sure of one thing many of use confuse paranormal activities with communications with aliens.

      Television is all about advertising and getting ratings, and not much else.

      Baloney still sells. lol

        True. Baloney does sell; but, I wonder how far we would have come technologically if everyone was as averse to the idea of new possibilities as you are. Not far, I think.

          LOL! Sorry you're so confused as to what a possibility is, but it usually doesn't include ignorance, magic and baloney.

            I've noticed you poo poo the idea of anything; unless it involves the possiblity of cookies.

            I'm simply not close minded.  That is not the same as confused. Do try to understand the difference. smile

                    You are being silly. You have no idea what I imagine. Except that I'm imagining what the outcome would be if the documentary shared valid proof. Why you have to be so negative concerning the prospect of alien life is a mystery I'm not inclined to imagine the answer of. smile

    I don't doubt there are aliens in the Universe either, but the distances pose more than a slight problem for any life form travelling to this little planet.

    We have already seen that we are a helluva long way away from life supporting planets for starters, and we run a pretty unique set of chemicals and elements in our atmosphere.

    Add the problems associated with gravity and there are plenty of reasons to think this is a bit like the claims made for the crystal skulls that was recently debunked by science.

    Maybe it is a hoax. Maybe it isn't. We are all aware of the problems associated with interstellar travel.

    But, I've also read evidence that we don't know the full history of humanity. There is ample reason to accept the possibility that there were highly advanced societies we don't know about.

    If this face is real, it plays into the story that the Mayans were waiting for the return of a man with light skin that had shared advanced knowledge with them.

      I am inclined to agree. We don't know the full history of mankind.
      I would even entertain the idea that there were once advanced societies living on earth previously.
      Maybe we have evolved intellectually several times in the past then been wiped out by the planet itself.

      The interstellar travel thing is a bit less easy to deal with scientifically though.

    Emile Rposted 6 years ago

    Well, whether we know how to deal with things, or not; deciding it's less easy scientifically isn't an incredibly valid reason to assume if we can't do something, it simply can't be done.

    The bottom line is that if our species is left to continue to advance without interruption; chances are very good that we will resolve these problems. 14 billion years is a long time for other life forms to have done the same thing.

      This was always the general argument - that with so much time and so many planets any intelligent life form could have evolved and wanted to space travel and would have had ample time to have visited if they could be bothered.  The argument against has always been that if they had visited we would know, more than urban myth stuff.   

      That we as a species would be able to survive long enough to maybe find answers to the problems of space travel I have less confidence.  The aggressive colonisation gene in human beings that is the driver to get out there is more likely to kill us all off.

        I disagree with your last paragraph, but your comment about the agressive colonization gene is interesting and true. Until we learn to keep that in check we'll probably be doing  life in the universe a big favor by staying put on this rock.

    I think aliens exist. Anyone remember Area 51?

    I believe those were the aliens that traveled 3,000 years back to us.

    If aliens visited earth from 3,000 years in the future then they would have developed technology that both allows the materials of their aircraft to withstand atmospheric changes and travel speeds that trump anything we have ever accomplished on our planet.

    I believe Einstein proved time travel was possible, at least on paper.

    3,000 years is a lot of de-acceleration.

      Yes, but not through the use of a time machine. Time travel is possible, technically, but it is a one way trip into the future.

    I read an article in which astronomers estimated that in the Milky Way, there may be a possible 2 billion planets which could support life.  And the Milky Way is only one galaxy amongst a possible 500 billion in the universe. In addition, there is now the theory that our universe is possibly only one of an infinite number of universes, which make up a multiverse. However, the distances between us and the nearest possible planet with advanced life would be too great.  Even if it were possible to travel at the speed of light, which is 186,000 miles per second, it could still take hundreds of thousands of years to reach the nearest planet with life. 

    I don't believe it is a coincidence that the public interest in alien visitations and UFOs began not long after the first atomic bombs were dropped, and the world was at the beginning of the Cold War, and people were terrified that they were about to be wiped out by the alien Communist USSR.  Fear of new weapons of mass destruction  created a climate of fear of science and where it might lead us.  This fear extended to fear of attack, not only from the Communists, but of alien species from other planets.  I think it is also very telling, that since the end of the Cold War, reports of flying saucers have dropped dramatically.  There is no longer a space race, and science-fiction TV shows, which were very popular in the 50s and 60s seem to have mostly disappeared.  There is no longer the fear of the alien, or the interest in space travel that gripped the world 50 years ago, and so fewer people are seeing little green men.

    Whilst I don't doubt there being life on other planets, I don't believe it will ever be possible for us to know of them or for them to know of us.

    This is what I am looking forward to see. If it is real. But I don't believe until I see or experience that kind of nature. I did not believe in ghosts until I actual seen and experience the paranormal activity for myself. SCAREY! Aliens has been a fascination for me for years. I thought it would be great to have friend from outer space. It would be neat to say I been to Mars. LOL

    Our universe around 13.7 billion years old, at least according to the Big Bang Theory. Now, it has been, according to science, around 2 1/2 million years since our ancestors diverged from other hominids. Now, that's one big time difference. What's to say other worlds, too far away to be detected, evolved 3 or billion years ago? Or that they have conquered propulsion and space issues enough to transport themselves to our neck of the woods like we hop in our car and travel two states over? As one other writer noted, there are over 4 billion stars in our galaxy, making it very possible that there could be 4 trillion planets-just in our galaxy. There are about 125 billion galaxies in our universe. Now-nothing can be proven about any other life forms anywhere, at this time. But can the possibility be discounted, out of hand?

    I would really like to say that it is impossible but i have my doubts. Before JFK got killed, he did do some speeches about secrecy and aliens. You can find these speeches on you tube. You also have to remember that Stephen hawkings is a quantum physicist. Anything is possible for him. He even theorizes that aliens will enslave the earth.
