Evidence is defined as proof or tangible material to substantiate a case in point. Honestly the best example of this would be physical contact under the watchful eye of the masses to concur the supposed incident actually transpired. But what about history, is there not enough examples in our past and present to make a solid argument?
Throughout our history there has been many documented precedent to suggest that UFOs may have been visiting for a very long time. Egyptians have depicted such events in tomes of etched hieroglyphics and even artifacts recovered at the Mayan temples suggested some knowledge of these visitors from another world. We revel in our historical moments like Christopher Columbus’s journey to America, but we conveniently forget that he himself reported such an encounter during his voyage on the Santa Maria. Let me elaborate: In his own words he details the events that transpired on October 11, 1942 at 10:00pm: “a light glimmering at a great distance.” It vanished and reappeared several times during the night, moving up and down, “in sudden and passing gleams.”
Now fast forward to July 18, 1969 during the historical Apollo 11 mission. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin admitted on a Science Channel documentary called “First on the Moon”. He was quoted saying: There was something out there that, uh, was close enough to be observed and what could it be? Mike (Collins) decided he thought he could see it in the telescope and he was able to do that and when it was in one position, that had a series of ellipses, but when you made it real sharp it was sort of L shaped. That didn’t tell us very much.” He also stated that none of his crew-mates wanted to report the incident to mission control in fear that the mission might be aborted.
Jimmy Carter is but one of two US Presidents to report seeing a UFO before becoming the President. He was quotes as saying: “It was the darnedest thing I’ve ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colors and it was about the size of the moon.. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us could figure out what it was. One thing’s for sure, I’ll never make fun of people who say they’ve seen unidentified objects in the sky.”
The list of such evidence is quite a compelling argument, but with every shred of proof there is an equal opposing argument against it. Even Travis Walton, who experienced what he described as a horrifying experience has paid his dues, competing against polygraph testing, having no viable evidence brought forth to dispute his claims, and medical repercussions that no laboratory, or physician can disprove. Yet there is still a shadow of doubt that lingers heavy in the air when it comes to the existence of UFOs, or the existence of aliens. People will argue that the government used UFOs as a diversion to sway the masses from worrying about nuclear stigma, but in fact billions of dollars have been allocated to investigate this supposed non-existent entity.
Why would so much effort be made if everyone knew that it was all a hoax? Why would some governments like Russia openly admit of incidences of the unexplained, and others claim that no such evidence exists? I would like to add one more thought to ponder as you contemplate all the many articles submitted so far.
If a bank robber goes into a bank and steals a million dollars, and during the heist he shoots everyone inside, but walks out unarmed he will be arrested and detained, without a single shot fired?
But if a man was to cross the border along the Groom Lake Base (Area 51), and was to have no weapon to defend him or herself, they would only be given a warning before being shot dead in their tracks. There is posted sign along an old jeep trail leading into the basin of the alleged base, and the warning is clearly the only evidence man shall ever need, “Trespassers will be shot!” During an interview with a former soldier who worked the perimeter of the famed base, he was quoted as saying, “our orders were to, shoot to kill, without prejudice!” Maybe, there is nothing more than military testing being done, but the evidence points to something much more than just a conspiracy theory.
