I did some very basic calculations on the speeds of UFO'S ;

For instance ; at

2000mph = divided by 60 mins = 33.33 miles / min.
by 60 secs = 0.56 miles/sec.

5000mph = divided by 60 mins. = 83.33 miles/min.
by 60 secs. = 1.39 miles/sec

10,000mph = divided by 60 mins. =166 miles/min.
by 60 secs. = 2.7 miles/sec.

50,000mph = divided by 60 mins. = 833.33 miles/min.
by 60 secs. = 69.45 miles/sec.

So we can see why they can seem to " blink out " . Because within one second these craft will have gone at least a half a mile.

Plus I think this refutes this " another dimension theory " as to why they just blink out or just disappear.

The most puzzling thing about all this ; is that ; nobody has bothered to do these simple calculations before.

These simple calculations changes one's perspective .

What's next? Are you going to discuss the typical number of eggs that Nessy lays?

Yes I do.

You are calculating the speed of something that does not exist.

To you

But to thousands of others these craft do exist.

Therefore this thread is aimed at those who have experienced these craft first hand and those who have researched the evidence and NOT to anyone else.

You origin are in the " not to anyone else " .

That is not in the OP. You should start your OP with For The Believers Only.

No

This thread is for those who KNOW not think but KNOW.

There are four main reasons why UFOs "blink out"
1. The plane turns off its landing lights after takeoff (or just turns so it is no longer shining its lights at you).
2. The meteor burns out.
3. The satellite flare stops catching the sun.
4. The satellite travels into earth's shadow.

As far as your first post goes, it is basically just mathematical gibberish having nothing to do with any sort of reality.

That isn't narrow enough: it would need to be For The Believers Who Don't Understand How Math Relates To Reality Only.

So you both ; being ; origin and russ ; have said your peace ; irrelevant as it is ; we those that know better will understand what my point is .

You mean "piece".

But I feel I should point out that even the slowest of these speeds is supersonic.

Thus, any craft moving at such a speed would not "just blink out", as its passage would be marked by a loud sonic boom.

Do you believe they were aliens and not just anomalies?

Depends on the form of motive.

Anomalies of what kind?

No it doesn't.

Any
object moving supersonically in air creates a shock wave (sudden pressure pulse) which is perceived by the ear as a bang.

yes of course conventional modes of thrust have a sonic " boom " LOL . think well beyond this.

I repeat: it has nothing to do with modes of thrust. It is simple fact of the compression of the air, caused by the movement of an object - any object - through it faster than a sound wave can carry away the compression. Even a shell or a bullet makes a sonic boom of sorts, if it is moving supersonically. Read the article. That makes it perfectly clear. It even gives the example of the crack of a bullwhip.
