Are We Alone On Our Planet?

05/12/2012 4:17 PM

I've read many stories about flying saucers visited our Planet. But any realistic story you came across that implies or proves we are not alone in our globe?

Worms are "in our globe". We live "on our globe".

We are not alone. I know this. I've seen them.

I have the pictures to prove it.

I can't show them to you or they will come and pull out my...........................

I've never heard about flying saucers; only about flying spoons.

It's those fleets of flying toasters that have me worried....

Be careful when you ask a question. You might not want to know the answer.

There may exist more advanced civilizations in other planes far away from earth.

I know that they exist, as I've seen them on 3 separate occasions.....and the last 2 (one a boomerang shape, whereas the other one was triangular in shape....both were about 3 stories thick too....floating silent cities!) were observed in the last 7 years. They were as long as a football field and flying about 250 feet AGL!

Sorry, I don't have pics as I didn't have a camera of any type in my car....though 8 other peeps on one occasion did stop an get out of their cars, including a NY State Trooper! I would hate to have been him and try to write an incident report for that sighting!

No none. We are all guessing based on available data on earth and our limited (but expanding) view of the universe. That and a dose of optimism.

i doubt it. even if there are advanced forms of alien life out there, i would'nt think they would be capable of reaching the earth from a planet that's probibly light years away. they would have to manipulate physics as we know it.

another related question. could the "skunk works" be experimenting with aircraft that's decades more advanced than anyone could image?

I'm quite positive that Lockheed's Skunk Works is working on some sort of aircraft/spacecraft hybrid even more advanced than the "Aurora", which was rumored to go at least Mach 7.5, or Hypersonic. Heck, they may have already reverse engineered a captured alien spacecraft by now for all we know. Since the Roswell incident in 1947, 65 years have elapsed. That's a lot of time to tinker with some unknown technology and finally figure it out.....and look at all of the Black Budgets our there. Billions upon billions that it'd make Carl Sagan's head spin.......Ya think????!!!!!

A "flying saucer" wouldn't actually work. Our military (US) has proven that already. However, other forms of space travel do look promising.

As for the question of whether or not we are alone here on/in the planet Eath... Well lets just say we know more about what is in outer space than we do about our own back yard.

Does anyone really know what may be living at the bottom of the oceans, in the trenches? Or deep in the caves in the bowels of the planet?

We aren't even certain what lurks in many of our forests and jungles.

In fact I sometimes look at the people around me (I peek out from under my tin foil helmet) and wonder what they are. I mean we've all seen "Men In Black", haven't we?

Did you mean the Avro "Silver Bug", as developed for the USAF, when you contend that the US Military tried and failed to build a flying saucer? That was done back in the late 50's and early 60's, some 50 years distant, and lacked a powerful enough power plant. In fact it was driven by normally aspirated engines operating ducted fans for lift and a somewhat limited directional stability.

We've come a long long way with technology since then, so yes, it's entirely possible that some sort of Black Project may be under way to develop saucers or some other type of advanced flying technology. What they're developing we will not know anything about for another 50 years because those types of projects will be of the highest secret classification.....even the Prez will never know about the technology and advancements......he's about 12 or 13 steps down from the uppermost Top Secret clearance.

Scientists and researchers are working hard, day and night in various fields, in their mind nothing is impossible, dreams may com true.

Expect the non expected??!!

On a planet with an undefined "we", plants are the predominent life form. There's just a few other things scurrying about among them.

The aggregate weight of insects on the planet far exceeds the aggregate weight of humans.

Just sayin'.

PWSlack, you wrote:

'...On a planet with an undefined "we", plants are the predominent life form...'.

If by predominant, you mean the group with the largest representation, measured by numbers of individuals or by total mass, prokaryota far exceed flora.

The total current mass of all bacteria and archaea likely exceeds that of all plants by an order of magnitude.
