Are UFOs real or just a myth?

A difficult question. UFO's are certainly and indisputably real. UFO means 'Unidentified Flying Object'. If something is seen apparently flying, and it is unidentified, it is at least for the moment an unidentified flying object. So this can include a myriad of objects from weather balloons to light aircraft.

Usually at issue is whether or not UFO's are in fact alien ships, or perhaps secret test flights of new technology. These conclusions are speculations that are matters of opinion.

So, yes, there have been many flying objects that observers couldn't identify. Of course, not many people are good observers, and even "trained" observers, such as pilots, have often misidentified things they have seen in the sky. The number of UFOs which, after formal investigation, remain unidentified, is a small though significant proportion of the number of reported cases. Theories as to what these unidentified objects are ranger widely from psychological or spiritual experiences to solid machines of unknown and possibly extra-terrestrial origin. There is NOproof that these UFOs come from outer space, or that they have an extraterrestrial origin.

AnswerJudging by the grouping, I assume you're interested in "Alien" spacecraft. My personal feelings are that they are a myth. With our current knowledge of physics, nothing is able to travel faster than the speed of light. In fact, nothing we know is able to even come close to the speed of light. Our fasted object is Voyager 1, which is travelling at around 30,000 MPH. Our nearest star is around 4.2 light years away, so Voyager would reach it in 74,000 years. So with our current knowledge, travel to the distant stars is impossible.

Our Galaxy is approximately 100,000 light years across and we reside about 25,000 light years from the center, lets say, we have a craft that can travel faster than the speed of light or even use worm holes or other exotic space travel options. Why would you go to all that trouble and not make yourself known. Why pick a solitary pickup driver, in an isolated place for a candidate of interstellar investigation, Our position in the galaxy puts us on the outer edge of the galaxy, so if there are any inter planetary explorers, there are MANY more interesting objects closer to home than us.

The chances that an UFO from an extraterrestrial has landed or even landed on Earth is highly unlikely.

Are crop circles the work of a cereal killer?

Husk,Husk! How RYE you are. WHEAT can't be sure about this. A rather CORNY question to ask. Strange BRAN of humor you've got there. I can BARLEY figure it out myself. They will find out when it's the RICE time,OK! Hmmmm, You planted a SEED in my mind. Actually, it's three cereal killers. They are called Snap, Crackle and Pop! I can see that there is a KERNEL of hope for those who have replied to this thread. Be aware that some items above are spelt incorrectly. This item really goes against the grain... The clan gets together in certain weather conditions to do their work and enjoy the interest it attracts. But it is all about the stars and the ritual that keeps this secret society developing their patterns. It would be interesting to know who is in this secret society, but it is an old society. As the reports of crop circles have been around for a long time, the society might reach back to the Dark Ages, when food was scarce. Perhaps the members simply needed the rye.

Is the US hiding something sinister in Area 51?

Unfortunately, no one knows. Area 51 is a military base located in Nevada which, from the satellite images, looks like some aircraft/laboratory. Recent updates show that the base is rapidly expanding. What we do know is that Area 51 tests new military equipment. This is why its in the middle of a desert. Things called 'Black Projects' are in Area 51. It is said that these black projects test out completely state-of-the-art weaponry.

The answer to this question is that Area 51 could be holding something sinister but no one really knows unless your really good friends with the CIA!

Who are UFO 'Intelligences'?

There are a lot of hypotheses that UFO intelligences exist and are alien beings from either space, time, or other dimensions. They are theorized to be the highly evolved time-travelling descendent's of Human Beings.There is no shred of actual evidence, let alone proof, of any of this. Some people say that there was proof but the US Government stole it all. They have no proof of this, either!


"UFO" means "something in the sky and I don't know what it was". It does NOT mean "alien spacecraft".

The term UFO means "unidentified flying object". This means any object in the sky that is not identified. Sometimes this is just simply an object that is misidentified such as an airplane or bright star. However many objects are seen in the sky that cannot be explained certain) as any known or understood object. Some of these objects have been seen on radar doing things that appear to defy the laws of physics, such as accelerating or changing course at rates that would kill any known life form. This leads many researchers to believe some type of advanced technology is at work here. But most believe that if something on a radar scope does something no real vehicle can do, they are looking at a radar "ghost", not a radar image of a real thing.

Of course not everyone believes in UFOs. The US government has always maintained the position, "such things do not exist" and anytime there is a mass sighting of a UFO or UFOs the government shortly has some kind of "explanation" for what it was. Many are not satisfied with the government's explanations, such as physicist Stanton Friedman who say the government is trying to cover up many facts about UFOs. There is no proof of this, however, and UFO buffs will never be satisfied with any explanation, governmental or otherwise, that does not say what the buffs want to hear. A classic case is the Roswell incident. After a large amount of taxpayer money was spent researching the MOGUL balloons and crash test dummies, and compiling a pair of books explaining how these caused the Roswell myth, UFO buffs simply ignored the fact that Roswell was disproved. You can bet that if the government had said that Roswell was the crash of an alien spacecraft, they would have been believed. Same government, different predetermined beliefs.

What do UFOs look like?

a UFO could look like anything at all, because it stands for Unidentified Flying Object. so really this could describe a strangely shaped kite!

Were talking disk shape flying phenomenon not UFO as in anything unidentified.

They look like this..Imagine a perfect ring,like a bangle.Imagine it being pearl coloured and spinning around just like a perfect wheel.Now imagine a ball like mass at its front.Now its around 15-20ft radius and the bangle or ring or wheel or even disk is smooth cloud like thick vapourous circle.Now image the green bit from a rainbow,now make oval light out of this and place them all around the disk,this spinning too.Now imagine this hovering 40ft above the ground and in the middle of it is just a blackness. You now know what a REAL! UFO looks like.

What do aliens look like?

== == * I very very very highly recommend you watch a video on YouTube and all the other parts that follow it up. This may even change a few minds that are not even open to the possibility of extra-terrestrial beings. The question and answer are within you, whether or not you want to believe in it. It's just like religion, some say there's proof and other consider it as not enough. You decide. Still, I say remain open-minded no matter what happens you'll learn more that way. In history, most very bad calamities created by mankind have resulted form rulers, politicians, leaders, etc. that were stuck to the same opinion or belief to the point that they enforced their beliefs onto others. == == == == * It isn't that no one knows, it's that no one believes! Check a Google video. It's an interview with a man named Alex Collier. Spread the truth!

== == * Since nobody has every seen an alien, and we don't even know if they exist, nobody can say!

== == * Well, some people (the ones claiming they were abducted) say they're around 4 feet tall with really large eyes. I've never seen one. But there's plenty of people who say they've seen their space craft. Government property? Who's to say for sure. * I've seen a few movies showing space aliens. The movie Roswell showed an alien that I think was about 4 feet tall, skinny, with long arms, big round head about the size of a basketball, tiny nose, and big eyes about 3 inches wide (=8 cm) which are either round or shaped like a football. I think the alien in the movie E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was the same as above, but only 3 feet tall. In the movie Signs starring Mel Gibson the alien was about 7 feet tall, described as more physically fit than an Olympian athlete by jumping up onto a house rooftop and back down again, long arms, 3 inch wide eyes shaped like a football, very long skinny fingers, long fingernails or claws, big feet, no hair on head or body, and a head the size of an average adult human. This alien's overall body shape looked similar to Spiderman, in my opinion. I think all aliens have a small mouth and thin lips.

== == * Nobody so far has been able to provide incontrovertible proof that they have actually seen an alien, so the short answer is, nobody knows. * For that matter, nobody knows if alien life forms exist in the first place. However, there have been discoveries lately that suggest it may be possible. For instance, there may have been liquid water on Mars at some point in the past, which may have supported microbial life forms. Also, many planets have been detected outside of our own solar system. So far, most extrasolar planets detected have been gas giants, like Jupiter, and too close to their respective stars to be hospitable to living organisms, but instruments and techniques for detection keep getting more sensitive. Keep your eyes peeled. * In the meantime, you may want to check out Whitley Streiber's book, Communion. He is an author who claims to have had experiences with extraterrestrials. He describes their appearance in detail.

When was the Roswell incident?

The "incident" involved material recovered by the US Army Air Force (later USAF) between July 3 and July 7, 1947, near Roswell, New Mexico.


The Roswell Incident, according to UFO theorists, was the crash of a UFO spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico in July, 1947. The US government supposedly recovered the remains of the alien spacecraft, dead bodies of two aliens and one surviving but badly injured alien.

There has never been the slightest shred of real evidence to support this anecdote. After press releases and statements on July 8 and 9, 1947, the incident was all but forgotten until 1978, when a ufologist interviewed USAF major Jesse Marcel about his role in the event. After many other reports and statements throughout the 1980's, the Air Force issued official reports in 1995 and 1997, dismissing claims of an alien encounter and subsequent coverup.

The available proof (records, photos, etc.) makes it very clear that what was actually recovered were the remains of a highly-classified prototype for a spying device, called MOGUL, which was flown with a series of weather balloons and foil radar reflectors.

(Because of popular suspicions regarding secret government operations, many still doubted the legitimacy of the government proof. So it is unlikely that UFO theories about the incident will ever go away.)
