Thread: Governments REAL position on UFO's

    Governments REAL position on UFO's

    Sorry to sound to over the top in the title but this is my theory on it. Governments know their there, but they do not know what they are (aliens, time travelers, other dimensional beings, crazy as yet unidentified natural phenomina, advanced tech from another country) , and they also realize that they can do nothing about them (they have scrambled fighters several times against them to no effect). Since saying this may cause a panic/cause to people to try to respond to them in mass on their own (trying to contact them or shoot them down), they feel that they shouldn't do anything other than saying they don't know or that they don't think it's real.

    This is what I think, not so much a coverup as a why get everyone worked up of we can't do anything about it anyway.

    Any takers?

    Now for some fun on what they are, I think it's the Swiss, they did not want to participate in any recent wars because they would have made it unfair for the other side with there advanced starships and whatnot!!!! JK

    It's a bogus series of "memoranda" put out by a mischievous UFO enthusiast.

    I'm still not sure what you're getting at. Are you trying to say that this what I am doing, or that I am basing my opinion on this report or something? I didn't mention anything of the sort in my op or since so I'm confused.

    Unidentified flying objects exist to the common population, but I don't think aliens are driving them.

    i'm a taker...

    the government would not reveal information about it for the simple reason of not knowing the consequences of this information being released. It could be bad or it could be neutral... but why take a chance? Have you seen the panel of ex airforce officers speaking about the experiences btw? very revealing stuff

    As a wise character in a recent movie said:

    "Son, if the government were any good at keeping secrets, you would never have even heard of Watergate or Monica Lewinski."

    'UFO' means 'unidentified flying object', and inevitably, not every flying object will be correctly identified by the people observing it. Many reports of unidentified flying objects probably aren't even flying objects at all, but rather misidentified meteorological or astronomical phenomena, or pure imagination.

    The simple fact that UFOs are reported shouldn't be surprising and it isn't even particularly interesting. It's what we would expect.

    What would be interesting is if the UFOs were something truly extraordinary -- extraterrestiral spacecraft, time travelers, space animals, or divine visitations.

    I don't think that the world's governments believe that.

    If they did believe it, we would see more action and interest on their part in response to UFO reports.

    Concise and elegant. Sums it up very well.

    UFO's have been around for centuries

    just look at the many paintings in history that depict flying machines

    this nonsense that flying machines don't exist are simply shallow thinking upon the subject

    now any refutation on the position of those who do not believe in UFO's is seriously mistaken ( based on my last post )

    UFO's have been around for thousands of yrs

    it should be a wake up moment for those who think that UFO's are not true

    Yes. I agree.
    And Fairies, too. After -all, Sylvia Brown saw one...

    Let me tell you what happened when I visited Ireland in 1977. I was riding in a horse-drawn jaunting car in a beautiful park near one of the lakes of Killarney (one of the gorgeous cities we’ll visit on this trip) when I happened to catch something out of the corner of my eye. Lo and behold, it was a fairy—with wings and all!—on an oleander bush. She was so beautifully formed, had golden hair, and wore a wonderful blue gossamer dress. I blinked and looked again; she didn’t pay me any mind, but instead went gently from leaf to leaf and flower to flower.

    “I just saw a fairy,” I screamed at the driver.
    “Of course,” he replied. “They’re all over the place.”

    Also leprechauns, gnomes, and the like. Bad rap.

    Oh, and the Virgin mother....
