I am going to quote someone from another thread below, Billvon said ''Not at all. When they say they saw an "unidentified flying object" they are 100% correct. They could not identify it. That does not mean it was a space alien.'' This statement, is one of the most used arguments by the skeptic and when reading this statement, reminded me of the ''scientific skeletor'' as I call him... Bill Nye. As a member of the Skeptics Society, he believes that UFO's can be answered by rational explanations and that he challenges we didn't have UFO technology 60 years ago. Yes... he speaks for the general consensus of most skeptics, the idea is that we had propulsionless, saucer shaped air craft which could in fact travel at 7000 miles per hour 60 years ago. Remember, this man claims to be a man supporting science... ... he continues to say ''I don't deny these people saw something... people see things...'' and he continues to say ''but it is a big leap to go from UFO to alien aircraft.'' On the face of it, it sounds logical on the whole, it's a statement which is totally unsupported with no evidence. There is in fact, no evidence that we had that technology back then... and if anyone should know... the people Bill Nye was in the following interview with, would have known. Also take note of Bill Nye's rubbish ''theory'' on what happened. Nye uses what he ''thinks'' are rational explanations and tries to project that with an aura all too convincing that anyone who thinks it is something else, must be either drunk, delusional or underestimates our aviation abilities 60 years ago. By the way, being much more knowledgeable on UFO's than mister Nye, there is no evidence we had that technology... in fact the timeline of our evolution dictates we couldn't have had that technology. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asnaykgZE8M .... last addition.... It's more a leap in my eyes to say we had that technology (since it is chronologically impossible) to claiming we could be being visited by alien life.
