Dozens of people saw this thing, but not a single one of them was packing a cell phone with a camera? Uh huh.

I think there are many but travel to distant worlds out of our solar system and galaxy is limited by lifespan. It would take too long even at the speed of light to reach another system that may have a planet similar to ours.
Thoughts?

Take a sheet of paper. In one corner, write the letter 'X'; in the opposite corner (diagonal), write the letter 'Y'. Pretend the distance between 'X' and 'Y' represents the space between opposite ends of a particular galaxy. Now, take the paper in your hands and 'bend''X' to meet 'Y' on the opposite side. You've just truncated the distance between 'X' and 'Y' by 'bending' the space between them. Suppose that an advanced intelligence was able to accomplish this with the vastness of interstellar space. That would solve the distance problem.

William, interesting thought. I've basically held a similar belief that it would be impossible for anybody to travel thousands, millions or billions of light years to get here and even then, finding such an obscure plant seems impossible. However, the universe is approximately 13.4 billion years old, the earth approximately 5 billion years old and modern humans have only been around for approximately 6,000 years. And when you look at what was accomplished in the past 60 years (which is a what...a gazillion of a second compared to the universe?) I suppose that beings could have evolved into creatures that apply physics way beyond what "we" know them to be and into into a higher level of understanding and use where faster than light travel is possible (maybe even solved wormhole travel) that they've managed to visit now and again. It think its possible, there's a huge difference between 13.4 billion years and 4,999,999,999.00009 (or whatever it calculates out to) to where highly advanced creatures are possibly here. Ya think?

And of course after the Space Aliens finally arrive here at the end of their journey, the best thing they can think of to do is play hide and seek with small groups of people in obscure locations from time to time, HUH.

Thats one really advanced culture alright!

I think that to completely dismiss the "alien" abductions and UFO sightings is just not very intelligent. The truth is that SOME
THING is doing these things. People have their unborne babies taken with no trace. People awake with peices of symetrical metal under their skin with no visible mark. People have thousands of hours of UFO videos, of which SOME are quite legitimate. There have been millions who have said they've been abducted. I highly doubt that every single one is lying. Even if just 5 people are telling the truth then there IS somthing "out there".
As a Christian I find no evidence in the Bible that God created any other forms of life not on Earth. But then how do you explain the alien phenomenom?
What is it that's abducting people, performing surgical tests, doing genetic testing, etc..? You could say that the gov't has bred hybrid human life forms that do this, but that seems unlikely. Maybe though, Im not throwing that theory away altogether.
I strongly beleive that the Bible is full of explanations as to what these "aliens" really are. The word alien simply means not of this planet. Therefor God is an alien. And so is another creation of his. The only thing he created besides us humans. Angels. Way back in time Lucifer tried to attain God's level of power. He was cast out of heavan along with 1/3 of all the angels(the ones who followed Lucifer). Him and his followers were cast into what the Bible calls the "Third Heavan". The third heavan is simply the universe. Space, the sky around the earth, etc.../
Contrary to most people's beleif, Satan was NOT cast into hell. He was cast into the 3rd heavan. He was also given the title, "Prince of the Power of the Air". The bible says that he and his fallen angels inhabit the 3rd heavan, or our universe.
Indeed, the fallen angels are quite busy trying to undermine God's creation. Originally, all angels were created by God to carry out the specifics of terra-forming all those planets that were and will be inhabited in the future. Angels are not married, nor are they given in marriage. So, angels are created without all the aggressions we have (They don't need all those troublesome hormones we have). We were created a little lower than the angels, it says. They all have their specific areas of purpose. some will handle the garden while others will attend to the development and placement of humankind on inhabitable planets. But, all those angels (who remained with God) continue happily to obey God. Satan is the author of the flying saucer. They must sit back and laugh at the mysticism that humans stir up among themselves. There is, without a doubt, life like we humans abounding in the universe. Scientists would be surprised at the commonality of life.....But they would be mostly amazed at the quantity of it. The fact that other planets are inhabited does not disprove God...It proves it all the more. God continues this very minute to create new planets, to harvest those that are ready to be harvested....and most amazingly to me provides the way to salvage all his creation back to himself. It's true about Jesus. He and He alone is the key to our salvation. It's the same every where in the universe. But be careful to put things into perspective....God calls us sheep. We have our puspose in creation also. We can understand all mysteries and have knowledge of all that is contained in creation and know the purpose of it all....But without love the Bible says that we are like a clanging symbol. Our ultimate purpose is to obey God....and that's the undebateable, indisputeable truth.
Thanks,

Well. Now then.
Thank you so much for explaining it to us. I feel so much better now that we got all those mysteries cleared up in one tidy little package.
Thank you!

If God is our father and Jesus is our brother, than that must make Satan our cousin....

I didn't support the notion that they're here or anyware. You are obviouly unable to comprehend a simple statement but you're very capable of being snide jerk. It must be very difficult living in brain that has no imagination or the ability to wonder at the mysterys of the universe. If people like you had dominated human kind we'd all still be walking around in animal skins, but then again, maybe you still are.

I believe in Genesis it says something about the God's coming.I wonder who the God's are. Ezekiel saw the wheel, didn't it take him away? Jesus said,I have other sheep that are not of this flock(other than earth people)?

Lighten up Bub, i was not making fun of you.
i was using your comment to illustrate my point. it was not meant to be snide, just true.
Travel uncounted trillions of miles, and then hide? Its more likely they are time travellers from Earth in the Future anyway. Sheesh, get a grip palsy.

Oh, and in the future, please call me Godfather...it's a respect thing.

Sorry Godfather, I missed the humour. Yes, I believe the future time travelers returning is a Carl Sagan theory. Yes, no?

I never read much Carl Sagan, but its a common theme in Sci-Fi.
i have been hooked on reading the likes of Larry Niven and David Brin for about 35 years now
