    Quoted from RonSS:

    I guess I meant their comments on the cockpit videos seem more like a first/second sighting, rather than "here they are again".

    Even if you had previously seen 100's of them, I would imagine it could still be a pretty thrilling experience, given the potential nature of what they might be and the hard to comprehend nature of what they do/their movement etc.

    I know I've seen 100's of nude women but I still get excited and a thrill when I see one in person

    Women, dogs, sports cars. There’s lots of things I’ve seen before that still get me excited.

    Quoted from Vyzer2:

    So you dont believe that government has levels of secrecy?
    ....

    Of course govt's have "levels" of secrecy.

    All I meant was that nobody knows everything, also nobody knows nothing.

    So either way I don't get where the question is coming from?? . I perhapse didn't do too well conveying context, but also it was a bit of a parody. Anyway.

    So, yes it is a gray alien area

    I'd just like to point out that all of these videos have been thoroughly debunked.

    OMG, you are seriously out to lunch. Aside from the fact that there are multiple EYE WITNESSES who literally saw an unexplainable object(s), and aside from the FACT that these objects were picked up by multiple types of our most advanced radar system and sensors, the military themselves are telling you they cannot explain these objects as hard as they have tried (and they do investigate). So you get a person or two making videos for profit with some random theory (oh, it's a bird) on each video (as if it was just a single source in each incident) and you consider that "thoroughly debunked, case solved"?? Good Lord. The Gimbal incident explanation in particular is just ridiculous.

    Sure. You seem particularly emotionally invested in this for some reason.

    Let's just say that it is clear to me that the available evidence points to the rational and terrestrial explanation in a convincing manner. And literally zero actual evidence of anything else.

    Can you explain what part of the simple explanations provided in the videos I linked you can find fault with? Is the math wrong?

    Speaking of lunch, do you believe in magic tricks? There’s a lot of people in the audience who believe stuff when they see a magic show. Eye witnesses don’t mean shit, people can lie or people are convinced and tricked.

    Of course radar picked up a bunch of stuff that’s its job that doesn’t mean anything other than an object. Our military did investigate and they stated that it’s either a balloon or UFO or something they can’t explain that doesn’t mean that it came from outer space or another dimension according to them. It just means they can’t explain it.

    The math doesn’t lie. The gimbal explanation mathematically is completely plausible. You cannot rule it out. The data is right there it’s the facts and it cannot be denied.

    Does any of the above mean that there’s not other life in the universe of course not, but this is not the smoking gun example prove other life.

    My exasperation comes from people like you treating our military like complete morons as if these Mr Wizards thought of something the top scientists and military experts haven't. You literally have a President (former President Barack Obama) telling you "it's true, these objects are real and we cannot explain them". You literally have expert Navy pilots telling you what they witnessed with their OWN eyes (forget the advanced radars and sensors altogether) but you put your faith in Mr Wizard and his simple explanations. Okay.

    #1012 8 days ago
    Quoted from JMcDonald:

    ...but you put your faith in Mr Wizard and his simple explanations.

    It's not about "faith", it's about science. Sure, lots of unexplained phenomenon happens, nobody is denying that. The more you look at the world with very specific lenses (aka advanced military scopes, radars, etc.) the more likely it is that they will render glitches for things that fall outside of their nominal operating design parameters. Unexpected to the operators, but not really that special. You can't take these things at face value.

    I've yet to see or hear of an example that can't be explained rationally, given adequate evidence to analyze. There is zero evidence that something that hasn't been explained is anything but another mundane case waiting to be explained. Sometimes there isn't enough evidence available to be analyzed to determine the root cause of something. That doesn't prove anything, other than we don't have the means to determine precisely what caused it. But, "absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence" applies across the board.

    Quoted from JMcDonald:

    You literally have expert Navy pilots telling you what they witnessed with their OWN eyes (forget the advanced radars and sensors altogether) but you put your faith in Mr Wizard and his simple explanations. Okay.

    And you have literally none of the witnesses saying that they know what the things are. None of those people are technicians or film analysts. They are reporting the truth when they say they saw something in the air and they didn't know what it was. Beyond that bare-bones report, they offer no evidence or proof of the nature of the sightings. The armchair analysts can be interesting, but they are taking second-hand information and applying a lot of speculation. So far, the truth is that we don't know what UAP / UFOs really are. We can't even really call them "objects", because all we know is that something apparently was seen. No one has gotten close enough yet to get a photo that's any better than a cheap 1950s UFO magazine cover. The aliens need to abduct someone who has a fully charged smart phone who can make some decent recordings.
    There has not been any conclusive evidence that points to extraterrestrial origin, unknown advanced technology, paranormal activity, or any other explanation. There are a large number of reports covering many decades from people who have seen things that they can't explain. As soon as you start calling it "advanced technology", you are claiming to have identified the object. This hasn't happened. The sightings are still not explained at all.
    Unknown means unknown. As in we don't know yet. There is really nothing new here, and nothing to get excited about.
    "The Government" didn't admit officially that people had seen these things in the 1950s and 1960s, but many people, including civilians and those who worked for the government, pilots, astronauts, and many others, definitely said they believed they actually saw something, but it was unknown what it was, just like today.
    Someone is trying to whip up some new excitement about this old, old issue again without providing any new or enlightening information, just more eyewitnesses who saw "something". There is no more evidence of alien visits today than there was 50 years ago.
    I highly doubt "the government" is about to unveil any new or useful information. Like anything our government does, there are layers of meaning and propaganda in everything they say and do, and politicians are professional actors.
    JMcDonald I'm not trying to dampen your enthusiasm, but I'm just trying to point out that quite a few of us have been hearing these same exact stories for decades. When there is some real evidence telling us what these UFOs really are, we will all be very excited to hear about it! But you've got to trust some of the old-timers around here and remain skeptical until real proof shows up. We're not there yet.

    People in government lie

    #1017 8 days ago
    Quoted from zr11990:

    People in government lie

    People lie.... They don't have to be in government to do it.

    The chances just become much greater that someone will lie to you if their salary depends on it.

    #1018 8 days ago

    What you are saying DCP is true but from your perspective. Just like JM opinions are from his perspective. But you are also discounting many revelations from retired military personnel who still have sworn an oath to protect the secrets they know but have stated the govt does in fact have close up photos of “objects” as well as the govt having exotic materials of crashes. All these examples and thousands more like it discount the fact something is out there that is not part of this world. Trying to dismiss all that we already know is disingenuous because the govt has not come out and shown more of what they have.
    Revealing what our government in particular knows would most likely create a chaos in this world that would be more damaging than revealing all that they truly know.

    #1019 8 days ago

    Or maybe some people have some extraordinary technology and would very much not wish the need to reveal it, ever.

    Ever hear the saying: "Keeping an Ace up your sleeve?"

    Most people in government are hard working people who are just trying to stay afloat.

    Now if you are talking about elected government folks, then I agree with you... They do have an agenda... Get themselves paid. You will never see any of them in favor of term limits.

    I will never believe that somehow only people in the government have seen the "proof" of UFOs, and they have kept it secret from the entire world. If someone knows the truth about this, it will get out there no matter how much anyone tries to suppress it.
    People can swear all the oaths they want, but saying they "know of photos" that were taken or "know of samples" that supposedly exist is not proof of anything. It only shows that a lot of people make claims without being able to produce evidence. Not helpful.

    Those giants, the "mighty men of old" mentioned in Genesis obviously built the pyramids and all the other out of place artifacts.
    Those huge granite boxes (Serrapeum) were built to hold them safely through the flood, and they all left afterward.. Said they were for bulls but no remains found and all the lids are open. So they have 4000 years of evolution building and perfecting things.
    They obviously live somewhere underground, I'm thinking Antartica since so many special tourist like the Pope and Buzz Aldrin are being invited down to see something.
    Since a lot of them bust out of the ocean there must be tunnels running everywhere.
    Don't believe any of them crashed either, we ain't talking Tesla here. Obviously being discovered and proven aren't in their vocabulary. Military junk crashed and alien stories were used to cover it up.
    Any further questions on these things just ask.

    Isnt that what I said, that these aliens were nephilim from the Bible?
    Admiral bird flew over Antarctica and what he saw was never reported. Shortly after Antarctica was banned from exploration by all countries.

    I read the 12th planet decades ago. It seemed just as likely a story as the bible. It could be all bullshit, or truth. I have no idea. But in it, it explains that humans were made through some process like DNA manipulation. Crossing their genetic make-up with that of great apes, creating humans a sterile slave race. Then one of the Nephilim gave humans the ability to reproduce…and here we are.

    The nephilim were the offspring from the fallen angels and humans. Angels are male. I dont know how they procreated. I never watched any fallen angel porn. Genesis does say they they took wives among the daughters of men.

    Quoted from mcluvin:

    Our mums were the catchers

    I don't know if "angels" have a sex, but supposedly "impregnated earth women".

    Quoted from zr11990:

    People in government lie

    People lie. Even to themselves half the time.

    Lol What a guy! Ha ha

    This has been plainly shown over the last year and a half.

    This does not mean humans are totally stupid, just that most of them have been dripfed absolute nonsense for too many decades.

    It seems "nephilum" are "Fallen" (or failed) angels. Angels afaik don't generally hang out in this world a whole bunch, and don't physically interfere. But the same sort of thing as "Good vs Bad".

    Or are "fallen angels" and "nephilum" different things?

    So, I could be wrong... but the difference that is being mixed up here might be humans coming from Angels and Neanderthals ... conflated with (much later) Giants or "earthly gods" coming from Nephilum and Humans. From what I gather these are different things, different time periods.

    Perhaps both fallen angels and their earthling offspring could be both referred to as "nephilum". I dunno.

    So good is bad, and bad is good?

    Or are we supposed to tripple flip that now lol?

    Seriously though, I'd heard about this book but never got to reading it. Sounded somehow like an interesting story.

    #1036 7 days ago

    I copied this text.

    Ancient Sumer-Babylon, like many cultures of antiquity, produced mythologies to explain the world around them. The Epic of Gilgamesh is one such mythology. Several versions of the epic poem exist, but the 12-tablet Akkadian version is the best known. The story centers on the friendship between the principal character, Gilgamesh, and Enkidu. Gilgamesh, the king of Uruk, is two-thirds god and one-third man. He has oppressed the people of Uruk, so the gods create Enkidu to distract Gilgamesh. Their unlikely friendship results in a journey of fantastical adventures resulting in the death of Enkidu.

    An important feature of this epic is a “flood” story in which a character named Utnapishtim and his wife survive a great flood and obtain immortality. The existence of this flood story, with its many similarities to the Genesis account, indicates a common source. Rather than the Genesis flood account being copied from the Epic of Gilgamesh, both accounts are entirely separate records of something that actually occurred, namely, a global flood.

    The gods who appear in the Epic of Gilgamesh are the Anunnaki, a name that probably means “those of royal blood” or “princely offspring” in the ancient Sumerian language. In contrast to this pagan mythology is the biblical account of the Nephilim. Who were the Nephilim? Biblically speaking, the Nephilim were the descendants of the sons of God and daughters of men (Genesis 6-4). While there are differing interpretations of this passage, GotQuestions.org believes it involves the fallen angels (sons of God) taking on human form and mating with the daughters of men (human females), thereby producing a race of angelic-human half-breeds.

    Is there a connection between the Anunnaki and the Nephilim? Perhaps. It is definitely interesting to note that both the biblical flood account and the Epic of Gilgamesh mention supernatural, god-like beings interacting with humanity in connection with a global flood. So, it is possible that the myths regarding the Anunnaki originate in the reality that was the Nephilim.

    There were giants in the earth in those days,.... That is, in the days before the sons of God took the daughters of men for wives, in such a general manner as before declared, or before the declension and apostasy became so universal; even in the times of Jared, as the Arabic writers (n) understand it, who say that these giants were begotten on the daughters of Cain by the children of Seth, who went down from the mountain to them in the days of Jared, see Genesis 5:20 the word "Nephilim" comes from a word which signifies to fall; and these might be so called, either because they made their fear to fall upon men, or men, through fear, to fall before them, because of their height and strength; or rather because they fell and rushed on men with great violence, and oppressed them in a cruel and tyrannical manner; or, as some think, because they fell off and were apostates from the true religion, which is much better than to understand them of apostate angels, whom the Targum of Jonathan mentions by name, and calls them Schanchazai and Uziel, who fell from heaven, and were in the earth in those days:

    and also after that, which shows that the preceding clause respects giants in former times:

    when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, came into their houses and chambers, and lay with them:

    and they bare children unto them, or giants unto them, as may be supplied from the former clause; for the sense is, as there were giants before this general defection, so there were at this time, when there was a mixture of the Cainites and Sethites; which were the offspring of the sons of God, or posterity of Seth, mixing with the daughters of men, or the posterity of Cain; for this is not to be understood after the flood, as Aben Ezra, Ben Melech; and so they are described in the following words:

    the same became mighty men; for tallness and strength, for power and dominion, for tyranny and oppression:

    which were of old: like those that were of old before; or who in after times were spoken of, as in the days of old:

    men of renown, or "of name" (o); whose names were often made mention of, both for their size and for their wickedness; they were much talked of, and extolled for their exploits, and even wicked ones: they were famous men, or rather infamous; for some men get a name in the world, not for their goodness, but for their greatness, and sometimes for their great wickedness; which sense is countenanced by what follows: that there were giants in these early times is confirmed by the testimony of many Heathen writers; such were the Titans that made war against Saturn, begotten by Ouranus, who were not only of bulky bodies, but of invincible strength, as Apollodorus (p) relates, and Berosus (q) speaks of a city about Lebanon, called Enos, which was a city of giants, who were men of vast bodies, and of great strength, inventors of arms and music, were cannibals, and exceedingly debauched.

    Isn't it obvious? There is an alien participating on this thread. His translator is just a little f'd up cause I don't know what the hell he is talking about...

    #1040 7 days ago

    It's fun to look for UFOs in the Bible but remember it's all allegorical.

    Like Jonah and the Whale in the Christian Bible. It's "the cave" from Monomyth, the trash compactor from Star Wars the scene at the end of Act 2 in every romantic comedy where they break up for no reason. Introspection, the journey into one's self. The darkness before the dawn. (see also Job)

    Point being, religion isn't meant to be taken literally.

    THIS. Exactly. Of course not, Good Lord ... a higher intelligence trying to explain a level of phsyics we STILL are not even close to understanding. BUT ... the questions that arise when we acknowledge there are multiple higher-intelligence species visiting Earth. Wow. Just wow. Is there one in particular that is considered the true pinnacle of intelligence? Our "God"? At least in our galaxy? Are "they" in fact responsible for everything we read in the Bible? Did they come to Earth and play with our DNA? Did they plant us to begin with? Is there possibly an afterlife in a dimension unbeknownst to us?
    When you accept "Oh wow, extraterrestrial intelligence is real" ... the possibilities are dumbfounding.

    The next couple decades will be amazing.

    Quoted from benheck:

    It's fun to look for UFOs in the Bible but remember it's all allegorical.
    Like Jonah and the Whale in the Christian Bible. It's "the cave" from Monomyth, the trash compactor from Star Wars the scene at the end of Act 2 in every romantic comedy where they break up for no reason. Introspection, the journey into one's self. The darkness before the dawn. (see also Job)

    I guess we will all see one day won’t we.

    Any number of heads working together is meaningful. Not like just one head thinking to itself.

    Commonalities between various older religions is kinda interesting too. Also even with regard to the UAP and artifact things and stuff. Things and stuff like the DMT phenomenon as well?

    Just spent the last 2 hours bored at work catching up on the last 18 days of this thread. Very entertaining.
    I've seen plenty of things in the sky I can't explain. 20 years ago I was standing outside my moms house and a "shooting star" shot straight over my head. Cool, I thought. Then without changing speed it turned exactly 90 degrees and kept going as far as I could see.
    Recently I became fascinated with the alien stories people have after taking DMT. So I made some and tried it. No aliens, but I did see reality split into an infinite amount of dimensions. After about 10 minutes of looking in wonder at all the things in the cracks, the universe slowly compressed back to reality. 10/10 would highly recommend.

    When we go back to that place before we were born.

    This guy is a very curious case if you have not read about him before. Supposedly he has filed patents on behalf of his aerospace employers that clearly seem to mimic much (most) of the bizarre highly-advanced technologies we are witnessing. As Wikipedia notes, it may well be misinformation to scare our adversaries that if they should witness such technologies they might think it's the United States.

    Hey I'm not dissing religion just saying the stories are metaphors for life lessons.

    Right. The nun in my high school religion class said the same. Not sure what her take on aliens would be...

    Maybe "the apocolypse" changes a few things for her... Apocalypse, whatever that is.

    "The Greek root for apocalypse [αποκαλυπτω | αποκαλυψισ] is a verb meaning to uncover, reveal, lay bare, or disclose."

    A definition that has been interpreted and perhaps misinterpreted many times over the eons. Mass destruction as a simplification?, sounds like a distortion or slight exaggeration. Well so it seems to me anyway.

    Do what's right. Know that what we are doing is good, best we can. Be a good mutha-fu@ka, live with what results from that. Peace!

    But... Maybe we will not all "see" ... ?

    Great comments from Jeremy during his interview with Russell Brand on the hubris of some folks (like Neil Tyson) any why now is the time for scientists to step up, know the facts, and then propose answers.
