Buy The UFO Phenomenon? Seen Live In England
Great article with accompanying pics and footage.

This is the best article with what appears to be legitimate pics that I have ever seen, actually.

I want to believe, but, I also want good evidence.
 
Dakarʒ Jul 25, 2007 02:37 PM
Perhaps if the lights in the picture had lens flares.
 
Obi Wan's Ghost Jul 25, 2007 02:37 PM
The sensationalist article says "100 stunned onlookers". The video shows about a dozen bored people sky-gazing. Two of them are girls who are more interested in their ice-cream. Am I supposed to believe that only one person in the whole area had a phone that could capture video?

This comment from the site cracked me up.

Killing? That's not what I expected.

I haven't seen one in weeks.

But I live in Kentucky.

Bah, nothing beats the Phoenix Lights back in 1997 - it happened less than a month after I moved out here from New Jersey.

I believe. I think the man knows more than he's admitting. I think the government is in with them, for some reason.

You are statistically wrong, how can we be the only intelligent race in the universe?

Quite easily, statistics can't prove anything.
 
Kevin Jul 26, 2007 07:05 AM
Do UFOs exist? Yes. Anyone that claims that UFOs don't exist doesn't know what a UFO is.
 
badidea Jul 26, 2007 07:32 AM
Yes but this discussion is about UFOs that are unknown to humanity - not just to you or your neighbor (as this is commonly understood)!
Don't be dishonest!

Don't panic - it is the Autobots coming to stop the Decepticons from stealing the Allspark which is hidden inside the Hoover Dam. :D

UFOs are unidentified flying objects. No matter who is doing the identifying.

So do UFOs exist? Yes. Cause there has been objects out that have not been unidentified.

Does that mean they are space aliens? No.
 
Dakarʒ Jul 26, 2007 08:34 AM
Is that what most people mean when they believe in UFOs? No.

Is typing in a question/answer format entertaining? Yes.

Right, and they are wrong.. so..? :lol:

Why, because they aren't being pointlessly technical about it?

Like someone over-analyzing my post? :)
 
dav Jul 26, 2007 08:55 AM
still with feynman on this:
"I think that it is much more likely that the reports of flying saucers are the results of the known irrational characteristics of terrestrial intelligence than of the unknown rational efforts of extra-terrestrial intelligence."
 
Dakarʒ Jul 26, 2007 08:56 AM
No, like someone trying to over-complicate the situation.

Prove it!

for your record:
I don't believe in UFOs (flying around on earth)! And I mean those unidentified flying objects from outta space with aliens in it! And with Aliens I don't mean the illegal ones from Mexico but those lifeforms that have not been born on planet earth! And with planet earth I mean the planet earth in our solar system and not some other planet earth that might have the same name in another solar system...
Got me?

That's racialist against aliens. As a freedom loving internationalist and intergalactican I believe in equal opportunity for all aliens no matter what their color or origin. We should accept them because they will all pay taxes.

:) Errr, what?
Just because I don't believe that they have been here (or still are) doesn't mean that I wouldn't welcome them, or does it???
Which alien race do you actually mean?
(Klingons go home!!!) :D
 
Dakarʒ Jul 26, 2007 09:26 AM
We should build a wall between us and outerspace, to help keep out the aliens. We could call it... a Dakar Sphere.

Wait, how did this suddenly go political?

Technical: According to a strict application or interpretation of the law or rules

Nice to see you can be just as condescending as the best of us, though.
 
Y3a Jul 26, 2007 09:43 AM
Come on!! The disbelievers sound like those religious nutcases who say we were created about 6 thousand years ago, etc etc etc.

Just because we are on this planet, that doesn't prove that anywhere else has ever had life on it. Not intelligent life that could travel in space. naaaaa! can't happen. Advanced technology is just a rumor. We know everything, and understand all technology, and realize all possibilities, so this means no aliens or flying saucers...
 
Kevin Jul 26, 2007 09:45 AM
Dakar my original post was sarcasm. Wasn't meant to be taken seriously. Then the onslaught came on and I decided to play along.

Suddenly I am being over-technical and taking things seriously. At best It's just another example where sarcasm sucks on the internets. :)

I should have known better.
 
Dakarʒ Jul 26, 2007 09:51 AM
Well if it was sarcasm, then I'm sorry I misunderstood. I must not have been paying enough attention.
 
Kevin Jul 26, 2007 09:57 AM
No, it wasn't your fault. Sarcasm and the internets just don't work well. And I wasn't being obvious.
 
Dakarʒ Jul 26, 2007 10:00 AM
Let's argue over the topic sarcasm + internet.

Do you mean sarcasm or irony?
In case of irony this ";)" could have helped!
 
Kevin Jul 26, 2007 10:07 AM
badidea you are right. I should have posted a ;)

I apologize.

So racialist! You know in this era we have to be polite to everyone even if they want to invade your planet, convert you to their belief system, impregnate your daughter and put probes in your anus!

Well, then I apologize for starting an argument about this with you!
