Oooohh.. this is a goodie, I find it amazing just to even begin to think about this mystery.. I mean.. Of all th ethings you could imagine other life to be.. When t comes down to it, you've got no idea whatsoever aliens would look like.. and jsut anythig about them.. But seriously.. however technologically advanced they are, how ever much they can talk through telepathy... DO THEY HAVE U2???.. I think not... though I'll wonder if sometimes Bonos not from another planet.. he's too cool to be one of us.. 'Gushes at the Brim'.. hah..

I believe they are certainly a possibility. But you know what else I believe - I believe it is strange that humans assume that if intelligent life exists elsewhere in our galaxy/universe, that somehow this life must be infinitely more advanced than us. Why?

Isn't it just as likely that civilisations have developed elsewhere that are still learning, still developing, just like us.

Oh and another thing, why are aliens always portrayed as having a vaguely human-like form? The human ego at work, perhaps? After all, if they develop in another world, in a totally different environment (much weaker or much stronger gravity for instance), why would they look like us?

Unless (and this is a facinating theory), humans are decended from aliens who previously colonised earth. I don't really buy that, given our physical similarity to the higher primates already here, but interesting nonetheless.

Side note: Anyone ever watch that animated series 'The Cities of Gold' that was probably last screened sometime in the 80's. It tied in with some of these ideas, too.

HOLY SHIT! You legend! That was THE best series! I ask everyone about that and hardly anyone remembers. So good. A cliffhanger every episode.

Yes indeed. That show had it all. I've no idea how, where or when it was made, though.

I don't think I've ever seen/heard anything to convince me. But, if I woke up tomorrow and the headline of the newspaper said it had been proven/discovered, it wouldn't surprise me. I mean I'd pass out, but it wouldn't surprise me.

But to me, it's not a matter of believing (unless you've got some mashed potato handy) - life on other worlds either exists or it doesn't. Now as for 'UFOs', it scares me how stupid people can be about these things.

Even in my own fairly small city, the strobe lights from the local uni club have been known to freak people out (reflecting off clouds etc).

In an English class I had, we all did our research project on psychic/paranormal subjects, so we all learned a lot about that type of stuff. There have been so many hoaxes that it is ridiculous.

However, I suppose without hard evidence to tell me otherwise, I should keep an open mind.

YES, I DO.


The Pyramids.

Generations of grandfathers, fathers, and sons, back in B.C. times, built the pyramids.
They say that they used pulleys.

The Great pyramid, which is nearly 500 feet high, consists of 6 and 1/2 million tons of stone and around 2 and 1/2 million individual blocks. Each individual block varies from 70 tons to 100 tons.
My Dodge Grand Caravan weighs 3800 pounds. That's not even 2 tons!

And these blocks are perfectly cut and fitted together. You can't even stick a piece of paper in between them.

Now, maybe I have a vivid imagination but,.............slaves and pulleys?

I don't think so.
Well, in my opinion anyway.


That's just one of many "speculations" I believe.

------------------
GOD BLESS AMERICA!

P.S.-When I say "God Bless America", I mean just that,....."God Bless America."
Just like when I was kid and said it every morning.
There is no hidden, over-educated, or abstract meaning. Just "God Bless America."

I loved what Arthur C. Clarke said on the Space Odyssey DVD - if you haven't seen an unidentified flying object, you're not very observant.

Whether they're aliens, I don't know, but I'm sure they're out there somewhere. But no, I don't think they're here on this planet. Scratch that, I just thought of Dennis Rodman, Björk, Calista Flockhart, Jim Carrey...
