    Question Are we alone? What do you think?

    Link

    With the latest suggestions by NASA that their maybe some sort of organism on Titan,and the discovery of possible microbs in the meteorites from Mars and now ABC now doing a documentry on UFO's.

    "UFO's" have appeard in out culture from cave paintings and guy pointing to a UFO in the Maddona painting to cigar shaped objects in the skys during the 1800's to the "abudctions" of the 20th and 21st centurys.

    So, question is.........do YOU believe we are alone in the universe?

    After reading some of the posts from some members on these forums, I have no doubt that extra terrestrials (sp?) have visited this planet and left some behind.


    I've always felt it's an awfully big universe for us to be the only living thing in it. And no, it doesn't really concern me.

    No! We are not alone.

    If you think about it, our one sun has nine planets. Earth is known to have life, Mars has water and so does Jupiter's moons (both). Meteors that are known to come from Mars have fossilized plant life. Now looking up at the sky(away from city lights) at all those stars. Astronomers have found other stars with a solar systems(planets). That is just in our Galaxy(Milky Way, no not the candy bar). There are just as many Galaxies out there as there are stars in our one Galaxy, if not more. Who is not to say, there is no space or other star sructures past that? I find that highly unlikely that we are the only living organisms out there. As far as aliens coming to visit and/or abducting people, I don't know. never happend to me or someone I know. Only heard about it in stories, TV and movies.

    Wasn't that said in MIB, along with Rodman?

    Gee, I dunno about THAT many Galaxies still surviving. Ford only made them for, what? about 12 years? Most of them are in junk yards now, except for a few that have been restored by collectors.

    I think it would be incredibly pompous of me to assume that the human form as I know it was the only one capable of existing. It doesn't particularly scare me; I'll deal with the issue as best as I can when the need arises. I just hope that the meeting is a peaceful one and no-one decides to take agressive action against the unknown. I'm more of a "live and let live" kind of girl

    From what I've heard on a TV show (can't remember the name) they said that the Fire Departments are the only ones with a written guide if a UFO was to land.

    Fire Officer's Guide to Disaster Control Second Edition, Chapter 13.

    It makes for some interesting reading. For example, the very first line is "In this chapter we will now turn our attention to the very real threat posed by Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), whether they exist or not."

    What does it say after that?

    What does it say after that?
    I'll finish the first paragraph...
    "The well-documented and highly publicized War of the Worlds radio drama by Orson Wells shows how even a percieved existance to alien creatures can cause very real disaster-like conditions and panic among a given populace. In addition, if the apparent visits by alien beings and their space vehicles should pose any threat, it will, as always, be the fire service that is called upon to provide the first line of life-saving defense and disaster mitigation."
    Over the next 13 pages it breaks it down in to segments such as "UFO Classification System", "Adverse Potential of UFOs", "Force field impact", "Communications Disruptions", and a few other potential hazards and effects to consider if a UFO is encountered.
