Are any UFOs of alien origin - For that you have to accept that life exists on another planet. Well if Stephen Hawking thinks it does, who am I to argue.

You also have to accept that they are significantly more advanced than we are Probably 50-50 chance.

You then have to postulate that a more advanced race is interested in what we are doing - with the odd Nuke being exploded, you can bet your life that there would be some form of interest.

Do I believe that some of the UFOs are of alien origin - yes
Right – looks like you also have permission to board. I am going to have to stock up on those cheap reds!

I like the results in this anonymous poll.
That goes to show that its only a few who think they've seen any.

Our earth is bubbling ball of unnatural radiation of waves of just about every length from light to sound and a huge spectrum of radio waves. A beacon in the coldness.

If 'they' have the development to get here but not the nouse to contact then they are the biggest morons of the.... big black bit in the sky.


However as I am about to sail into the Bermuda Triangle (I think? Arn't I? Where is its southern limit?) I shall keep believing in them just incase they suck up Sea Life and before retuning me to sea safely roger my fundamental with their test kit.

Mark

You got it on the name; I am glad I have always been a Doctor Who fan!

With the Aussie dollar skyrocketing they will be dumping even more good cheap wines on the local market. I would be totally mad not to grab at least a few cases before I sail off. Unfortunately though I can’t see this being enough to make the Mediterranean.

I note, the other green stuff is a definitely a goer for seeing aliens. Unfortunately though it is prohibited in most countries and can cause serve problems with customs including lengthy periods in third world gaols!

I have been reading this thread with great interest. I'm glad someone resurrected it. In response to Mark's question of, "if They are smart enough to get here why can't they communicate with us?" Well, Douglas Adams answered that very clearly--"they" have been trying for decades to communicate with us but we're just too stupid to understand them. Like the tiny aliens that communicated by farting and tap dancing, or the Sea World dolphins who who finally vanished and said, "So long and thanks for the fish."

Hey Mark,

I've lived in the Bermuda Triangle for 65yrs, and the strangest things I've ever seen are at the bar in the White Horse Tavern on Friday night.

Maybe they coped a dose of Rocky Horror on a stray late night TV wavelength that got lost in space and now think administering a good probing is a friendly gesture?

There was a young martian from Mars who smoked Havana cigars,
he flew to earth and landed in Perth and now sells used cars.
Read about a few flying over NewZealand (about sux in total) 10 years ago,
the pilot managed to grab a few snaps for the pappers.
There's a number of weird and wounderful inventions up there that could be taken for UFO's / I'm happier in a sailboat, if I happen to see one, I'll more than likely head the other way.

I think another limerick is in order:

I thought it would be quite romantic
To single-hand 'cross the Atlantic;
But after three weeks at sea,
Aliens were appearing to me,
And their probings were less than fantastic.

Question

Haven't see one yet, but after reading all these threads, I'll defiantly be on the lookout.

Joke: Here about the Martian reading a stick book
Ended up with a Marsbar.

I would like to share with everyone what I didn't see while about halfway from Galveston to Key West. It was about 0200, absolutely clear, slight breeze, seas negligible and a 1/4 moon. Millions of stars out. I was sitting there steering with my foot watching the stars when they started to disappear. Imagine holding a softball at arms length and moving it slowly across the sky blocking out the stars. No lights, no sound, no nothing. All I could see was a blank space in the sky where the stars were supposed to be. All in all it lasted about 5 minutes. This happened in 1976.
