    Link: UFO Close Encounters Investigated, Part 1 of 5 - Very interesting UFO documentary from 2007--do you believe or don`t you? I think I might, still undecided.

    I kind of do believe but whenever I watch those shows on UFOs the people they interview are complete idiots and wierdos so eh we will find out sooner or later.

    while I have no doubt there is life somewhere in the universe, the nearest life forms would be extremely far distances from earth, distances not comprehensible by a human, millions of light years away, crossing through billions of other planets until one eventually has life on it. The journey to earth would be such a massively long one it could not be survived by any human being. What these "abductees" are claiming is that these aliens, who have technology that we can`t even fathom, traveled these incomprehensible distances through outer space just to come to earth with the intention of making some pretty drawings in our crop fields. That sounds probable.

    Could anyone please give me a link to the location of this video?
    I HATE when IAB puts documentaries up 1 part per day, it completely misses the point of the whole thing.
    By the time I watch another part tomorrow, I will have forgotten the first.

    I lean towards no other life, but I always wondered about Roswell.

    Ok, nevermind. Obviously ripped from YouTube.

    I assume if you can navigate YT, you can watch the whole thing there without waiting 4 days for the rest.

    Ill agree with sup dawg on this one. There is definately life on other planets, but for them to come here and not make real contact is just stupid.

    too far. We are studying this in science. The nearest galaxy is nearly 2 000 000 lightyears away, meaning that they wont even be seeing what we actually are, rather then the prehistoric age (th light has to relect off us and come back to them). Its just to mindblowing to comprehend and therefore ignorance is bliss

    I watched it all, it`s got some interesting points...None of which I`ll argue here.
    It`s interesting and worth a look if you`re interested.

    I kinda believe in aliens but I never believed the people on television saying that they have been abducted or had close encounters, i mean why would a species with so great technology and progress to travel in space from like 200 galaxies away from us want to encounter us!!!?
    Why cant they just use their technology?
    Well what I think is that a so progressive species like that can watch us without being detected.......except if they think us as ants. When you pass over an ant hole, all the ants go crazy and then the army comes out.So for them we`re simualated to ants!!!

    viczko do you remember that scientist in the begining of the video? he`s michio kaku and he has this book called "Physics of the Impossible" where he explains how interstellar travel might be possible

    viczko - the nearest galaxy is only about 25,000 light years away. the Canus Major dwarf galaxy. and then the sagittarius dwarf galaxy - 70,000 light years away. large magellanic cloud - 157,000. and the small magellanic cloud - 200,000. but i digress, and i understand the point of your post. because even with those much closer galaxies, they are still impossibly far away to travel to/from without having near unlimited amounts of energy.

    also - i 100% believe in life on other planets. the universe has far too many stars, far too many planets, and in far too many places for it to be impossible. have they landed on earth? i really doubt it. if they had the technology to not only be able to detect us, but to travel here as well, i highly doubt they would try to actively hide themselves from us.

    Interspersed with too many hollywood clips. Were they trying to be legitimate, or prey on the minds of retards?

    bah, they are not aliens, but inter-dimensional beings whose children draw crop circles, thinking it is funny at how we react afterward, and rewind it and play it in slow motion since they can control time.

    My theory is no more logical than every other nutcase`s

    When I comment on the existence of aliens and other races, I find that those who want to believe that there is no such thing will do so, regardless of any logical argument I, or anyone else can make.

    So I leave it to Carl Sagan`s Eleanor Ann Arroway to sum it up:

    "If it is just us... that`d be an awful waste of space."

    I like how we have to assume that if there are aliens, they just HAVE to be complete genuises and way to advanced for out technology
