Why are people so afraid to admit aliens exist and have interacted with us since the beginning of time?

Posted by: 1814Username

It is clear that something is going odd is happening on this planet. The number of high ranking government officials, from most every country in the world, coming forth is staggering. When Eisenhower threatened to take over Area 51, it is clear something was going on within parts of our government.

People are arrogant. They see the infinite variation of life on this planet, but somehow think we are the pinnacle of it all.

People are all about their comfort and security. Any idea that disturbs this, people will reject.

Aliens do not exist. In our infinite universe that has been around for billions of years and that may have many dimensions, we are it. There is no other life out there.

People know. They are just afraid to admit because it is obvious that we are not the top dog in the universe.

What about most people who believe that aliens exist but haven't visited us . Your assumption is that aliens exist so they must have been to earth . Earth is not the centre of the universe .

In all reality, we'll likely have a better chance a visiting a parallel Earth than meeting aliens anytime soon.

How is that reality? By the way, if you visited a parallel earth, you would be meeting aliens at the same time. Also, who says we have to go anywhere. They can and have come to us. Unless you believe the hundreds of thousands of people that have come forth are all working together to lie to the people of this planet. Please. When you have commanders of nuclear missile bases going on record saying alien craft shut down nuclear missiles, you better start listening.

No offence

You'd try. You wouldn't succeed I assure you. It is amazing how thin skinned this younger generation is.

IF ALIENS EVER VISIT US, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans. -Steven hawking Oh, wait, I don't see some alien giving me viruses nor do I see aliens knocking down my door yelling at me to move to Venus.

1814usename Are you capable of understanding that there is more than one way of thinking , if you believe that aliens visited earth fine and dandy , but you don't understand that other people don't . You literally are missing some major characteristics of being conscious.

Aliens have NOT made contact with Earth.
Formerland1 says2014-07-27T18:24:43.4785978-05:00
Sentient would be better supplemented for when I said conscious .
1814Username says2014-07-27T18:30:54.6409354-05:00
How do you know Aliens have NOT made contact with the earth? There are lots of military officials that say they have. How are you so sure they haven't? Why? Because you haven't been told?
Mister_Man says2014-07-27T18:35:50.3446219-05:00
Formerland1 - To say aliens have not made contact with Earth is just ignorant. I hate using that word, but it really is... No, we don't have perfect evidence that they have, but we also don't have perfect evidence that God exists. I don't believe in religion or God at all, but if you use your own argument, you can say God doesn't exist because we don't have evidence of him. It's an unfalsifyable hypothesis, you cannot prove either exists right now, but you can't absolutely rule out the possibility of either existing. To do so is just ridiculous. If you look at the facts - or the main fact, WE exist. If we exist, the chance that something else just like us existing is high. Not guaranteed, but the chance is high. To say there is zero chance basically means you're ignoring the fact that we exist.

Most " evidence " for aliens visiting earth is not really evidence , its human drawings and because they look funny it must be aliens . Aliens may have been to earth but they haven't contacted us . Not had the goverment tested on them .
Mister_Man says2014-07-27T19:07:04.7451159-05:00
That's why I said we don't have perfect evidence. I'm agreeing with you, because if we did have perfect evidence, 99% of people would believe they exist because, well - they do. But because we don't know for a fact that they exist, all we can go off is theories, speculations, what other people have said, including drawings, even though they could be kind of odd, we can't say "no, those are not aliens" because we don't know exactly what aliens look like (if there are any,) and there's no real reason to rule out something that is possible to exist. I'm heavily Atheist, but if I'm presented with evidence that God exists, I wouldn't be an Atheist. I don't believe one exists because I don't see evidence, but that doesn't mean I can say with 100% certainty that a God does not exist. Same goes for aliens. To state that you know 100% that aliens do not exist would mean that you have travelled to every corner of the universe and more. To say something doesn't exist or hasn't happened would mean you have had to be there. You can say "there's a very small chance that happened," but to say that it did not happen, you would need to back yourself up with some kind of sources. You can't just say "this did not happen because you can't prove that it did."

That wasn't even my point this was originally about how bias 1814username was .
1814Username says2014-07-27T19:59:19.6293489-05:00
Now I am biased towards Aliens? Formerland ... Go get a tissue and cry somewhere else.
mishapqueen says2014-07-27T21:28:15.7459681-05:00
I personally think that "aliens" are demons.
under_score says2014-07-27T23:13:01.4303139-05:00
Haha the option about comfort and security reminds me of "Men In Black"
under_score says2014-07-27T23:15:19.3722970-05:00
My honest opinion is that I think it would be cool if there were life from other planets however we have no solid proof of the existence of aliens and all that we supposedly have could easily be faked. That doesnt mean i think aliens dont exist, but i understand when people say they are skeptical about their existence.
Preston says2014-07-28T07:36:16.6772382-05:00
@1814 aliens haven't made contact, source: logic, reason, officials; If there was, some official somewhere on the earth at somepoint in time would have said something. But they haven't.
ischreib45 says2014-07-28T10:51:43.1263425-05:00
What about they obviously exist they just haven't interacted with us...Yet.
Preston says2014-07-28T10:52:23.3595162-05:00
Its 1814's poll, hes very biased
