Take UFOs seriously, SA group urges

2011-01-26 14:30

Cape Town - A small, but vocal South African group is urging people to take UFO sightings seriously and has called for the government to release secret UFO files.

"The media around the world has not played a positive role in UFO reports and there is the ridicule factor - people are afraid of the responses they would get," Christo Louw of SAUFOR (South Africa's UFO Resource) told News24.

Louw began his website in 1997 and admitted that he ran the organisation as a "one-man show", but that many South Africans were reporting UFO sightings.

"I get a lot of reports long after the sightings have taken place and you need quite a bit of resources. I've not been able to make a profession out of this," said Louw.

He said that about one out of 10 sightings get reported because the public was largely ignorant of his organisation.

Other dimensions

In 2010, several people reported a UFO sighting over Pretoria, but this could not be confirmed by astronomers in SA.

Dr Enrico Olivier of the South African Astronomical Observatory told News24 that observers were often confused by planets in the sky.

"Big culprits here are Venus and Jupiter in particular, since they can be quite bright at times. Venus sometimes appears very bright in west shortly after sunset. At other times it's very bright in the east a few hours or so before sunrise.

"Also when a bright planet is low in the atmosphere it twinkles more than usual, and can appear to change colour rapidly. Sometimes people describe it as 'being on fire'."

Louw said that several scientists, while dismissing extra-terrestrial UFOs in public, admitted that they believed in them in private.

"They [scientists] are restricted in the way they deal with the public. In private it's the opposite, but they are attached to universities and often it's like advanced peer pressure. If you lose credibility, you lose your funding."

Louw said that beings from other dimensions were visiting Earth regularly and pointed to the scientific position that in an infinite universe, there are infinite possibilities.

"I am in no doubt that we have been visited since forever. The evidence points to the fact that they might be inter-dimensional beings who have genetically modified us along the way.

"It's even indicated in the Bible, in Genesis 6, where they talk about the 'sons of God' who came down and took wives among the 'daughters of men'."


Louw explained his view on the purpose for these beings visiting Earth. "We are like an experiment for different kinds of visitors. And they are generally benign. If they weren't, with their advanced technology, we would be wiped out. So the fact that we are here indicates that they are benign.

"We would like the government to declassify top-secret documents like other countries and we would like to stop letting the public think that this is not real."

He said that the people who believe in the UFO phenomenon are generally the more educated in society.

“Basically, the more educated people are, the more they ask about everything. And they consider the possibility of extra-terrestrial contact.”

      "But the UFO phenomenon simply does not behave like extraterrestrial visitors. It actually molds itself in order to fit a given culture." - John Ankerberg, The Facts on UFOs and Other Supernatural Phenomena, p. 10 "Human beings are under the control of a strange force that bends them in absurd ways, forcing them to play a role in a bizarre game of deception." - Dr. Jacques Vallee, Messengers of Deception, p. 20 "We are dealing with a multidimensional paraphysical phenomenon which is largely indigenous to planet earth." - Brad Steiger, [cited in] Blue Book Files Released in Canadian UFO Report, Vol. 4, No. 4, 1977, p. 20 "We are part of a symbiotic relationship with something which disguises itself as an extra-terrestrial invasion so as not to alarm us." -Terrence McKenna [from a lecture] "One theory which can no longer be taken very seriously is that UFOs are interstellar spaceships." - Arthur C. Clarke, New York Times Book Review, 07/27/75 "There seems to be no evidence yet that any of these craft or beings originate from outer space." -Gordon Creighton, Official 1992 Flying Saucer Review Policy Statement "A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomena like poltergeist [ghost] manifestation and 'possession.' Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomena." - Lynn E. Catoe, UFOs and Related Subjects: USGPO, 1969; prepared under AFOSR Project Order 67-0002 and 68-0003 "UFO behaviour is more akin to magic than to physics as we know it... the modern UFOnauts and the demons of past days are probably identical." -Dr. Pierre Guerin, FSR Vol. 25, No. 1, p. 13-14 "The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon..." - John A. Keel, UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse, p. 299 "A working knowledge of occult indispensable to UFO investigation." -Trevor James, FSR Vol. 8, No. 1, p.10 "Studies of flying saucer cults repeatedly show that they are part of a larger occult social world." -Stupple & McNeece, 1979 MUFON UFO Symposium Proceedings, p. 49 - 2011-01-26 20:48

      Yes there are UFO's, I have witnessed one myself about 15 years ago. Having said that: UFO means Unidentified Flying Object. It does not immediately mean that we have visitors from outer space, paralel univers or other dimensions. It simply means that we do not know. For all we know there are secret planes or spacecraft being tested that we see (but cannot identify). Given the enormous amounts of stars and their orbiting planets it seems extremely likely that we are not the only intelligent lifeform in the universe. That does not mean they visit us or would even be interested in us. I think that we have to reserve judgement on the nature of the UFO's until we actually know something about them. - 2011-01-27 06:17

      Hans it also does not mean that they dont surely?

      Lucy - 2011-01-27 09:47

      I studied astronomy at UCT and the subject of visitors from outer space inevitably came up. And I remember my lecturers comments at the time which basically stated that when you look at the complexity of the numerous universes that exist - and all the other things that we still know nothing about - statistically the chance that our planet is the only place in space that has been inhabited is extremely unlikely. But with space distance being what it is the chance of us meeting up with beings from other universes is also statistically very small - unless they have developed to the point where they can travel at the speed of light without burning up into oblivion.

      Janaman - 2011-01-27 12:00

      and take juliass with u... pretty please

      Grant - 2011-01-27 14:43

      @ Lucy "But with space distance being what it is the chance of us meeting up with beings from other universes is also statistically very small - unless they have developed to the point where they can travel at the speed of light without burning up into oblivion" forget TIME is also a factor! High speed is only necessary if these beings age as we do. If they live for thousands of years, then hundreds of years of travel are possible, negating the need for speed. :)

      Bob - 2011-01-27 14:53

      In the 80's at a base in Area 51, there were multiple sightings of a triangular shaped UFO. immediately attributed to aliens. in 1990 the triangular shape was finally caught on camera; being wheeled out a hanger in Kuwait. it was the stealth bomber. they admitted to using it in test flights in the area that the "UFO" as sighted. therefore it was a UFO, but not alien.

      Hans-Erik Iken - 2011-01-27 21:23 : No, what I said does not mean that UFO's are NOT from other planets, parallel universe or other dimensions. I simply said that we do NOT know. So anybody stating categorically that they are or are not from there is lying. The same goes for the ones that say that they are from there. Why can't people simply accept that there are things that we do not know. UFO means Unidentified Flying Object. Unidentified simply means we do not know, were not able to identify it. Maybe some people do knwo what they are but are not willing to share that information for whatever reason. I see no reason to make up stories to explain what I cannot explain. As I said: reserve judgement on the fenomenon until we have correct and verifyable information about them. That is all I said, nothing more, nothing less.

A question, since you published the link, prove god to us all please. As for the rest, the mere fact that we haven't made contact with other intelligent life is PROOF that intelligent life does exists!

    Just a shame that us ET believers are ridiculed and made to sound like quacks, but the sciences are starting to support what we have believed for a long time- we are not alone

      Hendrik - 2011-01-26 15:05

      HAHAHAHAHAHa, and you will be ridiculed some more! think about it, if we discovered other life forms, the first thing we would do is to contact them, not snoop around for 50years! this is such bullshit!

      wesleywt - 2011-01-26 15:09

      What science? Is there finally a photograph of a UFO IN FOCUS. lol

      jinne.ja.hoor - 2011-01-26 15:15

      Irene that the exact word I was looking for....n quack!! Could you please provide the report number and listing of the "sciences" that are starting to support what you believe? I didn't think so..

      Ogre - 2011-01-26 15:15

      @Hendrik. Just like people were burned at the stake for stating that Earth is round or that the Sun was the centre of the Solar system.

      Irené - 2011-01-26 15:27

      hahaha hendrik, ever thought that they are way more advanced than us, possibly by millions of years. And they have been in touch for millions of years? Im not saying i am convinced 100% by the ancient astronaut theory, no one can be 100% certain about this type of thing, but it would clear up 'n lot of mysteries in the world wrt ancient artifacts, depictions in early art works etc. Not all ET believers wear tinfoil hats and think they have been abducted. Even hawking spoke out about aliens not too long ago, and he doesnt seem to think it is a laughing matter. @wesleywt there has been many many photographs taken over a 100years, many are obviously faked, but that does not mean all are faked. If you hhavent done any research on the topic you really cant ridicule us who have. to each his own.

      Frank - 2011-01-26 15:40

      check on internet aliens are demons. Not really from out there. but rather from here. They stop at the name of Jesus.

      mikelop7 - 2011-01-26 15:58

      @ Irene, like Louw mentioned above, it is generally the more educated in society that beleive in this phenomenon... All these people that don't believe in other life forms are usually your less educated, as they believe that our tiny planet, amoungst billions of other planets and suns and solar systems, is the only one that can support life...please!!! how narrow minded and nieve are these people!?!?!?! UFO sightings happen daily, but now must these be ignored because these narrow minded people believe what the government is telling them...? Another possibility of what the sightings could be, could be us in the future that have finally discovered time travel(which they are very close to achieving if they haven't done so already) and are visiting ourselves in the past, which is our present, and that could explain why these sightings are benign as well!! I suppose these guys all think these natural disasters of the past were caused by natural events too...please, wake up and smell the coffee...were are getting lied to and brain washed by the media and government little sheep that can't think for themselves and just believe everything that is told to us...

      thabiso.marumo - 2011-01-26 16:03

      haha... Hendrik, they are snooping around abducting the luunies just to prop them in the @$$, then wipe out their memory only to be recovered through hypnosis. Funny thing is this guys they have never presented hardcore evidence of the any ET, all their photo are shady they are never clear, but then again if ET was to fly through Gauteng he will be high-Jacked.

      Barry M - 2011-01-26 16:24

      Irene, mikelop7 is right - those that ridicule the thought that there are other planets out there that support intelligent life forms are generally the less educated. I have on two occasions in my 50 plus years seen UFO's and have no doubt that what I saw was the real deal. I just wish that during my lifetime we will receive a visit from another race and that their visit cannot be swept under the carpet by government and church!

      Frank - 2011-01-26 16:52

      Igsaan - 2011-01-26 20:34

      @ Barry - Your enthusiasm is charming but it is a moerse leap of logic to conflate the doubt that UFO sightings are of visitors from outer space with the denial of the possibility of life having evolved on other planets at all. The one proposition does not necessarily follow from the other. I'll leave it up to you figure out which. - 2011-01-26 20:48

      LoveJesus - 2011-01-27 08:52

      Yes and scientists believe in the THEORY of evolution, which was has never been proven and discovered by Darwin, the "jesus" of evolution. Pitty it's all from ancient religions that is having a revival as the time for the return of our Messiah is approaching! Yet they, the scientist is getting away with another hoax: taxes on carbon polution is a joke. Every year the north pole moves away from it's previous spot by 55km. EVERY YEAR, instead of decades! The climate change is natural! This by the way is from Bible prophecy, actually coming true right infront of uor eyes! Awesome!

      Nathan - 2011-01-27 08:52

      Haha I find it funny that people will ridicule those who believe in the possibility of life on other planets yet they themselves believe in the fairy tale that is religion. Religion is way more far fetched in terms of the "magic" behind it.

Seriously how can you spew so much nonsense in such a short paragraph?? its quite impressive, maybe you should go work for heat mag!! Ever thought the jesus in your heavily edited 2000yr old text was an alien:? That would be the only way he could float into the sky!! You must be one of these selfrighteous xtians who believes we can spoil and pollute the world as we want, because jesus will come and save the day. When your children are suffocating in the dirty air, and have no water to drink, just remember Jesus could turn water into wine, but he cannot remove the heavy metals, oestrogen disruptors and sulphates from our drinking water. ha crack pot

Yet you are so abusive/aggressive towards religion and those who practice religion. As you said, each to his own. You don't have to agree with their beliefs, but at the same time, there's no need to be so derogatory about it.

      shane.jacoby - 2011-01-28 14:00

      The universe is approximately 13.75 ± 0.17 billion years old, whilst humankind is only a mere 500'000 years old. We are a extremely young race. If you consider the age of the universe and the amount of galaxies, solars systems and only recently discovered "inhabitable" planets that would be conducive to support human life, mathematically it would mean there can be a large number of planets to sustain organic lifeforms and not to mention life phenomena we can not explain. So what are we saying: The idea of a sentient life form that has superior intelligence or technology is not so far fetched. I have not seen a UFO before, but you never know when that day may come when and IF they do visit! So let's be open minded and develop a perception as a scientist would...

      GT - 2011-01-28 14:24

      @kotzeae - and then look at Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and they will tell you that you are nuts. UFO's are a reality, but there is nothing alien about them. Without testable evidence there can be no credibility. Rumours and suspicions mean nothing.

      masterjane007 - 2011-01-28 17:19

      No, you are indeed not your head. Maybe the scientists are struggling to hear you over all those other voices coming from your head.

      masterjane007 - 2011-01-28 17:23

      Excuse me! Nobody said it was impossible for there to be other planets that might support life! But we most certainly think your little UFOs are utter rubbish. There is a huge difference between the scientific possibility of life on other planets (none of the years and years of research having ever come up with anything to support that, by the way...) and the idea that strange lights in the night are UFOs sent by little green men! One day when someone brings me proper evidence to support the stupid idea that lights in the skie are aliens visiting us from the Lonely Planet, then I shall believe it, untill then, stop fretting and go find evidence!

      masterjane007 - 2011-01-28 17:30

      Irene, what a bloody hypocrite you are! You believe in rubbish about flying objects for which there is no proof, yet have a go at Christians for believing in God (which, by the way, there is a lot more to go on insofar as evidence is concerned than in respect of aliens and ufos!)

      Irené - 2011-01-28 18:50

      Hey masterjane You yourself have a bit of anger to contend with dont you. Actually if you took the time, you would see there is an overwhelming amount of out of place artifacts that point to unknown races that have dissappeared with all their knowledge, or it was of extraterrestrial origin. Sure some of the events in e bible did happen, jesus lived, but the xtian religion and all other religions take faith as their guiding star, instead of reason and science. Its easy to shun et believers, but they may have millions of yrs ahead of us, and thus much more advanced, just because we puny humans havent found et life does not mean they are not all around. We humans cant even live peacefully among each pther and we are rsping the environment, and yet you claim we are the most superioor species in the univse? Sad really. Its not that i WANT to believe un aliens its just the conclusion i came to after much research, i read many sides of the argument and came to the conclusion that we have been lied to, by nasa, by the us govt, why would the un appoint a minister of extraterrestrial affairs, yes its true, if they dont know something we dont...just saying The xtians on the other hand mostly blindly believe what their parents told them and fear god more than understnding life. Xtianss claim to know gods plan and actions. We are merely trying to find the truth.

      @ShaunSwindon Yes Shaun, extraterrestials exist because the Mexican govenment said so...... That's some astounding logic there. Its hardly convincing to say that alien life exists from flashing lights in the sky. That takes a leap of faith.

  • richietarr - 2011-01-26 15:03

    Such a pointless debate. Yes, in the vast expanse of space and far flung galaxies, there is a distinct possibility (almost probability) that there should be life on other planets but these galaxies are millions of light years away. The chances of us ever making contact are miniscule and thats holding the belief they are intelligent life forms. Those odds decrease any further weighing up the possibility if that life is intelligent or not. So basically, I'm not doubting that there probably is life somewhere but there won't be contact for centuries to come if ever. This isn't 'V'

      Hans-Erik Iken - 2011-01-27 01:34

      You left out another glitch: by the time we would be able to detect any alien life the chances are that they allready seied to exist due to the time it takes for any signal to reach us (lightspeed or close to it) and visa versa. The distances are so vast that it would need speeds way in excess of lightspeed to reach another civilisation. And as Einstein's theory states: speed close to or in excess of lightspeed creates time travel.

Aliens do not exist, and there is not ONE concrete piece of evidence that they do exist. And everybody can mumble what they want, the fact is that no one can produce evidence.

Go take a look at Disclosure and listen to the testimonies of the airline pilots, military officials, NASA scientists etc. YOU WILL BE, do people realize that world governments have been releasing their UFO files and that an average 5-15% of sightings and events are true unexplainable mysteries? Do people not realize that our history is full of documented events...only they've been suppressed or tainted? Listen to what astronaut Edgar Mitchell has to say about the the documentary Out of the Blue & I Know What I the Day After Roswell. In essence, do your research and be prepared to have your mind-boggled... and finally, the very reason why this topic isn't discussed openly or reported on the 6pm news is because there is a cover up by the establishment, especially the US Gov't.... To all who disbelieve or call UFO enthusiasts quacks, get educated on the matter and present some solid arguments. Challenge us intellectually...until then, you remain farcical idiots.

    Ignorance is a terrible, terrible thing. I find it hard to believe that most people think that the universe and all its glory is merely there for our simple appreciation. If you don't believe, fine. Not a problem, but expect the unexpected. It's better to be openminded about life and the universe, instead of being caught with your pants down.

      Hans-Erik Iken - 2011-01-27 01:40

      I agree there is most likely other life out there, most likely even inteligent life. Logic and the laws of chance make that very likely. That does not mean they come to visit us. Do not confuse the two. We are not that interesting and the effort needed to just visit us over those distances seems to make that unlikely.

      alfred.gutteridge - 2012-07-24 21:20

  • buzz - 2011-01-26 15:23

    There are literally billions of galaxies out there, so it just makes logical sense that there is other life out there, whether it be intelligent, or like us or not, remains to be seen. But the chances of us being alone in the entire universe must be zero. Whether any of that life has been here, on earth or not - well, I dunno.

      ffaarg - 2011-01-26 15:56

      Throwing numbers out there is pretty meaningless. One must look at them in context and use the context to calculate a probability to ascertain the likelihood of life. Since we don't know what configurations could yield like we can't really calculate the likelihood. Secondly the probability of life is only relevant if we assume a naturalistic explanation. But the likelihood of DNA based life is incredibly small even if you increased the number of planets by order of magnitude. The odds are so small that if life was formed without a God of any description, it is extremely unlikely to exist in our Universe. There may be life out there but saying it must be because of the number of planets, galaxies, etc won't work. - 2011-01-26 20:51

    my only problem with the whole UFO phenomena, is that why would intelligent beings travel thousands of light years, come here, and say "listen, would you mind bending over? we want to probe you" also why is there now signs of life if the UFO's are so prominent, you would think we would have found radio signals by now.

      Mad Hatter - 2011-01-26 16:22

      Valid points but 1stly , radio signals would be like smoke signals as they would need communications that are instantanious across space (inter-dimensional communication). Secondly , probing /experimentation could be important as they could be vastly different life forms , perhaps silicon based rather than carbon based life forms and an understanding of a completely different make-up of life would be of interest as well as maintaining as little impact on the 'study' or enviroment as possible (much like our scientists do). They could be machines sent here with mission perogatives ? Who knows but to totally disregard the possibility is naive and ignorant . If we are the only ones , then its a terrible waste of space. - 2011-01-26 19:09

      The book "Slave Species of the Gods" is a direct copy of a certain Zacheria Sitchens work. Try and read rather Sitchens books as they are the opinons and original findings of an archaeologist who actually found the clay tablets under the ruins of Babylon and translated them. I find Slave Species is too far fetched and is one Mans theories compared to hard facts and evidence which Sitchen provides of records of extra terrestrial beings visiting Earth and creating our ancestors 250 000 years ago.

      Barry, I really think that the problem with people not believing in such possiblities comes down to their intelligence or education for that matter. So many people just live their own little lives in their own little worlds, and have no clue what so ever what is really happening around them, or how small we are in comparison to our never ending universe. Take our leading party for example, the majority of their followers are the uneducated/less educated public, and what happens is they believe whatever their leaders are telling them and promising them because they don't know any better, and are brain washed. It they were educated they would question what their party is doing, and actually be able to think for themselves. And the reason they never go through with their promises of better education is because they would atually lose support so they happy the way they are. Think for yourselves, question your existence and find answers!! Or are you just like the rest of the heard of sheep that you follow?!?!?!

      Ben - 2011-01-26 16:17

      Since the "tree of knowledge" in Eden religion has been against us learning anything. The ignorant is easy to control. "I worry that, especially as the Millennium edges nearer, pseudoscience, religion and superstition will seem year by year more tempting, the siren song of unreason more sonorous and attractive. Where have we heard it before? Whenever our ethnic or national prejudices are aroused, in times of scarcity, during challenges to national self-esteem or nerve, when we agonize about our diminished cosmic place and purpose, or when fanaticism is bubbling up around us - then, habits of thought familiar from ages past reach for the controls. ...The candle flame gutters.

  • UberSkeptic - 2011-01-26 16:04

    I think that most people would agree that the existence of intelligent alien life, given the size of the cosmos, is certainly possible perhaps even inevitable. Where rational sceptics diverge from the loony UFO fringe is when it comes to their extrapolation from a few fuzzy photos and crop circles to an entire belief-system encompassing ancient astronauts, lizardmen-in-government, anal-probes, conspiracies, missing time, human-alien hybrids and all that other esoteric nonsense. Until we have an alternative explanation of the Fermi Paradox, I choose to believe that the simple reason why we haven't been visited by aliens is that it's just too damn hard to travel interstellar distances.

      Deezil - 2011-01-26 16:47

      Thanx ... trust a skeptic to give a decent honest answer!

The reason why UFO are still not publicly debated is because the media only gives you what they feel you should know. You will be suprised who controls the media and remember he who controls the media controls the world because the media makes us speak in a certain way, dress in a certain way, think in a certain way.

      @Larch and what evidence do you have that he is wrong?? You are just one of the sheeple man, catch a wake up, go do some of your own independent research on the internet and news archives and you MIGHT smell the coffee.

      And 99% of UFO's seen are not UFOs but a natural manifestation with a very logical explanation or a hoax. The other 1% cannot be explained so it does not mean it is a UFO. - 2011-01-28 09:19

      glad to see we have well educated people around

      It's not media that makes us dress and conform a certain way it is society.

      alfred.gutteridge - 2012-07-24 21:44

      and who dresses society?

    There are deffinately many earth like planets in the universe, why should we be so special... I believe in Aliens....

      william.botha - 2011-01-26 16:33

      Not to be disputed, but the sighting of ufo's is exactly that. If you don't know what it is, it is an unidentified flying object. Logic dictates that it is most probably not aliens from another planet. I think it is attributed to the superstitious nature of the human brain.

      Zion - 2011-01-28 07:18

      william botha, nice one but the term UFO really refers to an alien object and not a black paper bag blowing in the wind at night.

      Mike - 2011-01-31 11:33

      And I believe that pigs can fly!!!

    I wonder if they will bring Elvis back?

      No, they've stepped on his blue suede shoes.

    People people how narrow minde we are living on our overcrowded and abuse little ball called earth. all it takes is one asteroid to smack into our little global warmed chunk of earth to wipe us all out. Comments???

      ettienne15 - 2011-01-26 16:35

      Ja, has no one in this entire country watched Independence Day with Will Smith. It is like a manual for fighting aliens. I shouldn't be typing this, the aliens are intercepting this as I type...I'm out...

      Ben - 2011-01-26 16:38

      meh. Bring it. Why worry about something we have no control over. Lfe will always return. There will be plenty time for it to evolve to something like us or much better. All the time in the world. Life on this planet will only permanently end in about 4 billion year when our sun decided to hit it's midlife crisis.

      Zion - 2011-01-28 07:20

      Go work out the probability of that happening then you will see the chances of it happening are less than winning the lotto.

    If one does their homework on this subject (there are some good books out there "Above Top Secret" by Timothy Good and then this outstanding new book "UFOs Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On Record" by Leslie Kean) one will walk away with a new insight. Kean's book is one of the best written regarding this subject in recent years. It is backed by some prominent people in science and government.While the United States remains quiet for the most part in dealing with this subject other countries are being more open with their files. The British and the French have released quite alot of information in the last few years and other countries are following in their footsteps. I do feel that we are getting closer to some kind of world wide disclosure concerning this topic. Kudo's to Leslie Kean for taking the nonsense out of this taboo subject!

    During the ealy 80's SETI picked up a signal, coming from one of moons of one of the planets in our Solar system. Scientists struggled to unscramble the signal, without any luck. Since they knew where it came from, they send a message back in morse code (with morse alphabet and how to use it) basically asking them to use the include morse code as means of conversation, and please to resend the message. Eventually, after a couple of months the message came back saying: WE ARE NOT TALKING TO YOU. - 2011-01-26 19:15

      @Shaun - OK buddy - enough already - for F@ck sakes - we get your silly message!!

      povman - 2011-09-28 17:25

      If they're not talking to us why did they reply?

  • cristo.louw - 2011-01-26 16:47

    Hi everyone! I am the one that was interviewed for this article. Thank you for all your comments and desire to voice your opinions. It is really great to see so many people thinking for themselves, instead of rehashing other influential people's opinions!! This is not a debate. The belief that there is no other intelligent life out beyond Earth is a relatively recent one started a few hundred years ago. Before that, it was common knowledge. By all means, do your own research and contact me on if you want to report your own sighting or ask serious questions. I do not waste my time or energy on people who do not wish to even consider that UFOs are real. That is entirely up to them, but there are millions of serious and sane and intelligent and curious people, like myself, who ARE interested in further study and research into this and related phenomena. :-D - 2011-01-26 19:23

      Thanks Cristo for being so brave. Do not pay attention to the mindless masses who ridicule before even reading the pages and pages of evidence submitted by pilots, former millitary personel and secret services personel.

      Shadow Chasers S.A. - 2011-01-26 20:37

      Project Darknight... refer to the Wikileaks cable ... - 2011-01-27 00:23

      Well said Christo. As you say this is not a debate. What is beyond irritating is the ignorance out there! Often ridicule stems from ignorance....

  • MACH1000 - 2011-01-26 16:53

    I must confess. I am from an other planet. YES. I grew up on the West Rand of Johannesburg.

      Mike - 2011-01-31 11:36

      It shows!

  • rurapente - 2011-01-26 17:22

    We are not alone! the amount of people with multiple personalities is rife!

      Mike - 2011-01-31 08:14

      The 'number' of people - not amount!!

  • EchoTango - 2011-01-26 17:28

    As far as we can tell the universe is endless, with billions upon billions of galaxies, stars and planets so there is a good chance that there are other life forms out there maybe even intelligent life. Having said that the size of the universe is also the problem here, even if some highly advanced civilization out there figured out how to travel at the speed of light it will still take them hundreds to thousands of years just to get to us. That is only if they lucky enough to find them self in the milky-way galaxy. Any life form outside our galaxy will take millions to billions of years of travel. Warp drive is a way around this but we don't even know if its really possible but who knows some highly advances civilization could have figured it out. The other strange this is that these aliens are always describes as being humanoid, they walk upright like us and they look like us. And if you want to believe the good folk of the American Midwest they also have a morbid curiosity for probing our orifices. What are the odds of that? Who knows maybe there is some truth to these claims, but if that is the case then I think a more logical explanation would be that these aliens are in fact time travelers from our distant future here on a anthropological field trip. At least that would explain the humanoid futures and there love for probing.

    Hahaha!!! The only UFO files our Government has can be found in any Video's called District 9
