Seeing is believing?
I'm not going to ask if you believe in UFOs. As I've said, UFOs are nothing more than seeing an object that was flying and said object remains unidentified. No, what I am going to ask is this: Do you believe that aliens from another world are coming to our world? Many believe so, many are skeptical (they just don't know what to think) and some refuse to even consider such a thing.
Are humans so overwhelmingly egotistical, as to think that we are the only intelligent life in this vast universe we inhabit? That our Earth was chosen over possibly billions of other planets, to create intelligent (subject for debate) life, is ludicrous. If the Pope can 'welcome aliens as our brothers', can't we humans as a whole, agree that other intelligent life could exist elsewhere in this universe? That they are vastly superior to us in technology? Evidently not, or a lot of those skeptics are closet believers.
Evidence for the existence of alien life is all around us, every day. Is it not true that almost on a daily basis, science is discovering new (to us) species, on this planet Earth? People from around the world are seeing objects in the sky, that might possibly be organic in nature. It reminds me of several Star Trek episodes and a few in the following series (STNG, Voyager, etc.), where the crew encounters large alien beings living and thriving in space. Could some of our UFO sightings be of organic origin? One person described an orange glowing orb as like a cocoon, one said a jellyfish, another said it was like an amoeba. The objects seem to shape-shift, both in form and color. Recently in the news, perhaps an extraterrestrial entity that looks like an octopus, has struck a wind turbine England. At least it has been reported as such.
Where could such "entities" come from? Perhaps they are coming through wormholes opened by other aliens, possibly from other parts of our galaxy, our universe, or perhaps from another dimension altogether... Or is this all simple fantasy, purely mistaken identity and none of this is true? I don't have an all-seeing eye but I do have a brain and the ability to think and speculate. As it stands right now, that's all anyone seems to have. Well, maybe some are lacking in brains, particularly those in D.C. Where else would you hide something but in plain sight? It's like tearing your house apart, trying to find you keys, then suddenly finding them on the kitchen table (where you left them), as if they miraculously and suddenly materialized. The keys were there the whole time but somewhere between your eyes and your brain, there was a 'glitch', causing you to simply overlooked them. I can almost hear the aliens thoughts, as they zip around our tiny blue planet, peering into our mundane little lives. In the voice of Elmer Fudd, as he stalks Bugs Bunny, who just happens to be looking over Elmer's shoulder at the time: "Shh... be vewy, vewy qui-et."
It's still anyone's guess I suppose, as to what is flying, hovering and crowding our skys. Hopefully the mystery will soon be solved and we can go on about our business, steeped in our own self assurance that we are numero uno, the Alpha and Omega among the stars. Sorry, ain't gonna happen. Like Elmer Fudd, we are not alone.
