I will not sit here and tell you we are not alone in the universe.
I don’t know.
My best guess is we are not. I mean we are but a little speck of a speck in the big scheme of things so why is it not possible similar conditions to what exist on our planet has not been replicated somewhere else?
No, we are not talking about UFO’s. The government terms them UAP’s.
Unidentified aerial phenomenon.
Now, even though we are but a speck of a speck in the universe, the planet seems plenty big enough to most of us.
Starting with the “scope” of the 9-page report. This section starts the entire tone of the report. But, in the interest of accuracy, one page is the title page and two pages are devoted to defining the terms of the document. So, in this 6-page report:
“This report provides an overview for policymakers of the challenges associated with characterizing the potential threat posed by UAP while also providing a means to develop relevant processes, policies, technologies, and training for the U.S. military and other U.S. Government (USG) personnel if and when they encounter UAP, so as to enhance the Intelligence Community’s (IC) ability to understand the threat.”
Translation: We have no clue as to what we are doing. But we’d like to find one.
Basically, they are saying that the report will hope to identify the unidentified.
“Our analysis of the data supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved they will fall into one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, USG or U.S. industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems, and a catchall “other” bin.”
Oh, that inspires confidence in the report, especially the catchall “other” bin.
Doesn’t get much more scientific than that.
So, when you consider in the entire history of the most powerful nation on Earth (I had trouble keeping a straight face when I typed that), there have been a total of 144 reported UAP’s. That doesn’t really seem like a lot, but let’s weed out the garden, so to speak.
Subtract my crackpot ex-girlfriends (10%), dismiss 50% to other crackpots, 25% write off to drugs and/or alcohol, 10% are actual aliens looking to return home, and say, 3% are scientists looking to make a name for themselves.
That leaves 2%, a very credible, scientific (as scientific as the report anyway) number.
Maybe, just maybe, one of them actually saw a spaceship.
From another planet, another civilization.
Physical evidence would be nice, sure, but really it all boils down to belief.
Do you believe in UAP’s or UFO’s?
A better question is why not?
I would like to think that aliens will be more like in Cocoon, the great Ron Howard fantasy flick than in Alien starring Sigourney Weaver.
But that’s just me.
Being eaten alive with acid-spewing jaws is definitely NOT on my bucket list.
