I'm wondering if the hypothetically advanced aliens haven't contacted us for the same reason (if you are a male) you wouldn't walk into a cage with a male gorilla.

Whew just in time.

So I saw a UFO/something on Saturday. A bright, streaking reddish light that descended into the clouds, only to re-appear as two lights that eventually converged and lowered into the clouds for good this time. And then a plane headed towards me (Was standing in the driveway) banked a hard left and turned on a dime at a 90 degree angle towards the lights and the direction of the major US air force base, Wright-Patterson.

So here's the trouble I'm having with this. When I see people post about seeing UFOs/somethings on the internet, I choose to believe that they're lying. But when you say it... yeah now I don't know what to say.

So basically you saw a plane trying to tail a UFO/something?!

Testing military tech, perhaps?

Not just me. My girlfriend was standing in the driveway with me and saw the whole thing too.

That's what it looked like. Or something being tested at the base.

I think it's quite possible that we are not alone in the universe. Given how vast this universe is, it's possible that there is some other planet out there, orbiting a star, upon which is some form of life. There is no saying that they couldn't be intelligent as well. I'm not religious at all, but it has never affected my thoughts about extraterrestrials in either direction.

As far as whether or not these beings have visited Earth, I could also say it's definitely possible. These are so many mysteries throughout the world, some ancient and some modern, to which there is no rational explanation. Some theorists, such as writer Zachariah Sitchin have proposed that Earth was visited in ancient times by beings from another planet With their superior technology and intellect, early humans labeled them as gods (some accounts say that the human race itself was created by aliens). This gave rise to the mythologies of many cultures. Some modern fiction, such as Marvel Comics' Thor is based on this principle. While I can't argue for or against the validity of this claim, I do find it to be very thought provoking.

Well this is actually pretty relevant:

Seriously though o______O

I could be wrong. It could very well have been some kind of test at the base, even though the base was 35 minutes in the other direction. To look at it at least somewhat objectively, I must concede that fact. That being said, I'm familiar with aviation and some physics, and no type of aircraft or form of light or weather anomaly I've ever seen could have performed what I saw last Saturday.

And don't just believe me because its me, look at the merits of the situation and judge for yourself what you believe to be the truth.

Being someone who's always been fascinated about science, flight and space, and aliens and other paranormal phenomenon, it was pretty rad to see something I know I can't rationally explain.

Aliens exist.

Is there sufficient proof? No. Proof is irrelevant, we are the only proof needed to show that intelligent creatures can exist in this universe. But it would probably be easier on some of you if there is some. But there's not. There may never be.

It is highly probable that we may never live to see the moment that extraterrestrial intelligence is confirmed to exist. It is also highly probable that it exists too far away for us to reach in the next million years or so unless we master the art of interstellar travel and overcome the speed of light limitations.

We have Earth, Mars and Titan (or Saturn VI, Saturn's largest moon).
We have found solid evidence of past drinkable water on Mars.
Saturn VI has a dense atmosphere and clear evidence of stable bodies of surface liquid.

This is three habitable bodies in one star system out of billions of star systems in one galaxy out of billions of galaxies. The likelihood of there not being other life out there is... Astronomically small.

I verily do believe that extraterrestrial creatures exist. Just like the others said, it is not most likely that there are no other living creatures in the whole universe other than the ones here on Earth. It is also stated earlier that there are celestial bodies that can sustain life. I might also add up some more after I do some research because this topic is really interesting, in my opinion. This one mystery might unravel the whole mystery of time and space. If we uncover the answers to this question, we might discover, too, the mystery of life, or even God himself. It's a long process but i know that we, the humans, can do it. It's just a matter of time and space.

lol... i think i've gone so far. XD
but, basically, i believe that there are other lifeforms in this vast universe.......we, the humans, are the very proof of their existence.......and maybe there are other lifeforms, too, outside this universe of ours. maybe it's not just whole nothingness. maybe it's the whole everything.

haha, so that's it.

I'm sorry but I disagree. Proof is very relevant. It is the only thing relevant. If it weren't all these conspiracy theories would be fact and the lizard people would be coming back to harvest their slaves very soon.
You also said that we are proof of intelligent life, but proof is irrelevant. So are we irrelevant? If we weren't here at all would that change your opinion on the possibility of intelligent life? It may not, but it should definitely skew it in a significant fashion.


Also who said they saw a UFO? I'm not calling you out as a lier, for all you know it could have been, but considering the military base you mentioned is within range they may very well have been testing drones or some form of prototypical aircraft. Which seems highly likely.
My friend though he saw lights from 6 identifiable space craft last week. It was the casino lights reflecting off the clouds.

Basic probability says yes, there probably is extraterrestrial life.

It could be alien and military at the same time, Wright-Patterson is known for allegedly reverse-engineering foreign and alien craft.
