alien and human finger touching in space
Coming soon to a planet near you?

If you needed further proof that something is going on in the skies above, NASA has formally announced that they’re going to investigate UFOs.

NASA is putting together a team to take a look at “observations of events that cannot be identified as aircraft or known natural phenomena,” it said in a recent statement on its website. 

The announcement comes on the heels of landmark hearings in Congress on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, or UAPs, as the United States moves towards adopting a more serious stance towards understanding unidentified flying objects in our airspace.

What was once primarily the realm of conspiracy theorists is now being studied by the top space agency in the world, and is being reported directly to Congress.

What, exactly, is out there?

NASA Officially Probes UFOs

NASA took great pains to underline in their press release that they aren’t researching little green men from beyond the moon. There is "no evidence UAPs are extra-terrestrial in origin,” the release stated.

But whether UAPs are a natural phenomenon or aircraft from foreign countries, they potentially represent a grave threat to aircraft and national security as a whole. 

Additionally, NASA said that the spirit of scientific discovery compels them. “We have the tools and team who can help us improve our understanding of the unknown,” they wrote. “That’s the very definition of what science is. That’s what we do.”

But for the true believers – even those in government – that’s just NASA-speak for "covering our butts." 

Luis Elizondo, former head of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program from 2010 to 2017, says that UAPs are very, very real.

He concedes that they’re not necessarily extraterrestrial in origin… but that is a possibility. In 2017, he told CNN that "there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone.”

UFOs Go Mainstream

The possibility that UAPs are alien-related likely crossed NASA’s mind, at least as a possibility. According to theologian Rev. Dr. Andrew Davison, in 2016 NASA recruited leading scholars of all the world’s major faiths to find out how billions of the world’s faithful might react to unequivocal evidence that we are not alone in the universe. 

The results have yet to be released, but some scholars say Christians would have the hardest time swallowing that pill, pointing to their belief that God created the universe in six days, their opposition to the theory of evolution, and some biblical literalists’ beliefs that the earth is only 6,000 years old.

And the idea of UAPs is certainly on the minds of the Defense Department and Congress. Last month, Pentagon officials briefed lawmakers on UAPs in what is believed to be the first congressional hearing on unidentified aerial phenomena in 50 years. They were shown footage and heard testimony about unidentified aircraft in US airspace pulling off maneuvers that seemingly defied the laws of physics.

Certainly, the public perception of UFOs/UAPs is slowly but surely changing. And that seems to be what NASA wants.

"One of the things that we tangentially hope to be part of this study, simply by talking about it in the open, is to help to remove some of the stigma associated with [the study of UAPs],” said NASA researcher Daniel Evans.

And as the stigma washes off, it seems likely we’re only going to hear more reports of UFO sightings in the very near future. You may want to buckle your asteroid belt.

What do you think? Extraterrestrial, foreign aircraft, or something else entirely? Is the truth out there, and if so, how close are we to discovering it?

    Great Post.

    I believe yes.

    The Bible has so much in it.

    Then I read a message given by Yawah to a french man thats called Rael. Yawah the Hebrew Lord that they excepted as God. The message is called Intelligent Design. Free to read at rael.org It’s worth the read. I except it.

    The creators came from far away. They found three planets & planet earth was perfect for creating life. The message says something about human life was created 35,000 yrs ago, off the top of my head. I think it even says one day is equal to a 1000 Yawah is the Leader of the Group Elohim. A group of extra terrestrial scientist. Humans were made so to carry-on the Elohim DNA so that when or if is their creator comes along and their extinct then that creator will find The Elohim DNA within our DNA strand or genetic code.

    But the bible talks about the children of God mating with the humans. So they had to come from some where. Plus, Other people( extraterrestrials) have and look different because their created for their planet.

    The NASA. They already know the government already knows they just don’t wanna show that they know because they know they’ll be more riots because as people we are out of control.

    Thats my comment Minster Gray

      I also find it interesting that NASA could go to the moon 50 years ago and now nobody can do it...

      1. The Gray Minister 's Avatar The Gray Minister

        Yes it does. I haven’t looked into much of the open side of what their doing. If that is what’s going on then yeah very interesting.

        - My thoughts just to be me. I like to think that the moon was what revelations calls the wings of the women that was pregnant Or It’s the Satan that was hot on her trail.

        I keep finding stories of how maybe the moon is a Reptilian mother ship or what ever the stories are. Even heard the Gray’s kicked is off the moon because they were mining it. Makes me think they are turning the moon into something.

        I mean what if the moon just lit up bright like a star & flew away like a comet.

        Hmmm The transmissions that come to me

        There is a difference between having the ability to do something and having the willingness to do it. That is what you may have been meaning by your post, but I wanted to make sure that the distinction was made.

    As Carl Sagen used to say, "If we were the only species in this universe as big as it is, that would be a waste of space" And didnt NASA find rocks that came from Mars that had worm like creatures in it, naturally they were dead but still.

    And just last year in 2021, NASA found life on Mars "What was found on Mars 2021? The rover has found new evidence for ancient hot magma and abundant water. It has also discovered ancient organic molecules, the sorts of molecules found in all living things, still preserved in rocks and dust. All of these findings provide important clues about the conditions in this region a few billion years ago." https://earthsky.org/space/10-months-of-perseverance-jezero-crater-mars/ Not to mention that methane has been discovered on Titan and a few other moons in our solar system. methane only comes from rotting plant life or organic material.

    So while I am not saying that any alien life has reached earth, I AM saying that only a moron would say that as large as the Universe is and with as many earth like planets that we have discovered in the last 5 years that are in the goldilocks zone, we would be the most idiotic species ever to still insist that we are the only ones.

    So what do you tell someone who says he/she spotted a UFO? Goofy? My wife and I spotted a UFO parked along the side of a Michigan divided highway in 1980. Several other sighting were reported that same year near Brighton, Michigan. That made us feel a lot more comfortable. We told very few people about it, yet a year or two later, while meeting a psychic at a party, she she confirms out of the blue that my wife had witnessed the sighting of a UFO. So when you don't believe in UFOs nor in psychics, how can you explain that? I think we know very little about our God but think of the beauty of the earth and what God is capable of creating, and that should lead you to believe that there very well could be extra terrestrial life. Whether or not that would be friendly or hostile aliens, I cannot say.

    I have seen a UFO in my lifw time yet. But I feel there could be other species or beings from far places in space perhaps another galaxy. They may be far more advanced than we have. Super fast that we can't catch up with them or whatever ot is. Does God know of these UFOs? Keep your eyes and ears open clearly.

      Dr Steven Greer, CSETI, look up the website and Youtube. The disclosure was done 20 years ago. Others in the know too have said so. Buddhists and Hindus accept the existence of ETs. Did I see 🛸🛸🛸 50 years ago? Maybe. We still have our lives to live with or without them. Hopefully when they finally show up much religious sh*t will be done with and that scares many.

    In my opinion, there are many, many galaxies, with many, many planets that we have not yet discovered. It wasn't all that long ago that the human race went into space for the first time, which 50 years before that we were just barely flying in airplanes! We are discovering new things all the time. Therefore, can we deny that there are others out there? They may not look just like us, or talk like us, or even live like us, but I can not imagine that God only created us. He is the creator of all. Years ago, we thought that the Milky Way Galaxy was the only galaxy. How wrong we were! When our grandchildren grow up and their grandchildren grow up, they will discover what a vast universe God has created!

    1. Douglas Robert Spindler's Avatar Douglas Robert Spindler

      @Judy fruth "God only created us. He is the creator of all." Not any more as you said, "discovering new things all the time". One of the things we have been able to do is create new life forms and create synthetic life forms. God is no longer the only one who knows how to create life, humans can and are doing it too.

    We have had this conversation before. Yes there are alien's out there.Otherwise how come sci fi films and t.v programs featured aliens. Look at the mind of Gene Roddenberry and Star Trek with aliens what imagination he had .I have a Scots friend whose ex military and very intelligent he believes in aliens and the loch ness monster both of which I believe exist and why not. Go on NASA Prove to the world what we believe in

    Of course they are real! There are many ufo sightings in the Bible!!!

    1. Lionheart's Avatar Lionheart

      Yes Richard, there are even many things we cannot identify that are listed in the Bible, so why should we believe anything that was written in that book . No one has yet found any historical evidence that Moses, Abraham, Adam, and Eve, along with a whole host of others, were real people.

      We can find, and identify, dinosaur bones from 200 million years ago, using what you would call fickle science (as you have mentioned elsewhere), but no one can find the remains of any biblical characters from up to 4000 years ago. Weird….right?🤔

          Where are your demonstrable facts to support your claim Richard. We can all make outlandish comments like yours, but without evidence they mean nothing. That’s like Mormons saying there are 3 degrees in heaven, which they do, where is the factual evidence. Words written in a book is not evidence whether that is the Book of Mormon, or the Bible, or the Torah, or the Quran.

    UFO's do exist, and many can be explained. Here's the explanation for the one the Air Force milatary intelligence can't explain. And as for out milatary pilots, they need better training so they don't look so stupid in the eyes of the world.

      The importance of an education is difficult to overly stress. Studies have shown that as education level increases the tendency to ‘believe in god’ decreases . That’s a huge benefit right there. And the ability to clearly express one’s thoughts is a skill that many of the ‘religiously inclined’ on this group obviously lack. Therefore some advice to you, DRS….

      If you would just learn to spell ‘military’, or even pay attention to your spell checker, you wouldn’t ‘look so stupid in the eyes of’ members of this group.

      Always try to avoid being an example of what Forrest’s mother said about ‘stupid’.

      Additionally, a slightly paraphrased quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau comes to mind….

      ‘I would find your argument much easier to refute if you used words that made a bit more sense.’

      Not that such applies to the post at hand, but I have read some of your other comments and sometimes it is hard to know where to start.

    Are the things detected by the US Navy objects. Probably

    Are they flying? they appear to be moving around through the air - so - Yes

    Do we know what they may be? No

    I would give them a large U and F and a small o. It may be radar artifacts or hacking or some natural albeit unexplained phenomenon that has not been sorted out, or real objects. So, UFo from me.

  1. William Dusenberry's Avatar William Dusenberry

    The only proven UFO’s, were the result Catholic nuns who got rid of their diaphragms, while they were ascending into the Christian Heaven (located far beyond the outer reaches of the observable universe.

    Otherwise, as Dr. Neil de Grise Tyson (my personal astrophysicist notes regularly on Star-Talk) all UFO’s are what they are supposed to be “unidentified flying objects,.

    As supernatural Christian God believers opine — any time they confront a question for which they are unable to come up with a natural explanation (such as “where did everything in the Universe come from?” such Christians claim that their God made it — and that’s it.

    So those who “believe” that UFO’s prove that our Earth is being visited by aliens - just do what Christians do whenever they have an otherwise unanswerable question — claim that all UFO’s are signs of life other-wear in the Universe,

    Personally I'd say it is about time. We all know there's something out there as far as UFOs go I mean I guess we're seeing something whether they're from another planet not sure it is my opinion for a long time as that they are not necessarily from other planets but from this planet in our future are from our future. When I was younger for a long time I thought they were from another planet fuel by space movies and programs like Star Trek and etc which is kind of neat however a reality of it all is that why would beans from another planet be interested in us what I really think it is is that it's ourselves coming from the future I think makes more sense much of the rest of you think that's the question keep in mind this is a free world a place that you can post your own ideas so let's do this not sure if it's a good idea or not but Lionheart if you're out there I welcome your thoughts

    There is always that "many kingdoms" reference, which most people want removed faster that the priests removed the Book of Enoch.

    But to be serious, there are two issues leaning favorably into the ET question. The first is the definition of life. If you say small people with almond shaped eyes, then the field of contention becomes small. But if "life" can be defined as any living creature, the odds become larger. Then there is the mathematical angle. Galaxies times planets in the galaxy comes to a huge number. Now consider that the odd of finding life is better than winning a lotto.

    But to get back to the definition of life, are we narrowing ET only to visitation? What if they live on another planet and we just don't know about them?

    It's awful arrogant to think we are the only ones.

    A bigger question to me might be, do they believe in God. Or are they our God(s)?
