Are We Alone?

This past weekend was a long one for me; here in Canada we were celebrating Victoria Day and lots of firecrackers filled the night sky. During the time between blogging and watching fireworks, I was able to catch some of Larry King Live on CNN which made me wonder Are We Alone?. On his show he had Ryan Seacrest but that was not the part of the show that interested me sorry to all of you American Idol Fanatics that stop by my blog. No, the last part of the show was dedicated to the news of Britain's ministry of defense releasing some of its research into the UFO phenomenon. The British government has a lot of files on the phenomenon and will be releasing the files into their national archives.

I am aware that one of our Canadian Prime Ministers I think it was Paul Martin announced the existence of UFOs to promote more free speech on the subject. Whether or not this was a catalyst to getting the British to release documents to the public I'll never really know. Anyway, the fact that these files are being released; regardless if they will be released over a period of four years is a step towards getting an answer to the age old question "Are we alone?" I've liked science fiction for years but that does not mean I believe there are aliens out there. I do believe it is possible; because it would be an awful waste of space if there wasn't extra terrestrial life.

I've had a chance to glance over one of the documents that were recently released. If you want to take a look at the releases you can find them here. The first thing I noticed was the large amount of black space in the document. Now they have released more than one document in .PDF format I have not had much of a chance to look through them. Mental note, take a look at more of them. I just opened the first one of the releases. After scrolling down quite a bit I finally made it to what would be a UFO report. So far I have not seen any elaborate investigations into the report but I am still going through some of the material.

My preliminary conclusions is that these releases are just filed reports of sightings. As for what this means to Canadians or better yet, everybody is that we now have a source to look to when we are curious about the UFO phenomenon. This certainly means that the flow of information on the phenomenon will certainly increase and sooner or later we will be able to draw a conclusion. However, we still need to keep an open mind on the subject; the phenomenon will never fully be explained until alien visitors make themselves known to the masses. But one thing that I found a little odd was the Pope's astronomer released a statement prior to the release of the files to paraphrase that alien beings are a product of God. Kind of made me think. What do you think of the news?

I like xkcd's version of the Drake Equation:

I'm pretty certain there's something out there. My father and I were visiting Shediac, New Brunswick and went to Parlee Beach (there have been a lot of 'sightings' between Moncton and Shediac, New Brunswick). Dad took two pictures (one click right after the other) of the beach, and later on, when we uploaded the pictures, we could see what looked like the UFO pics that get posted all over the place... we thought it might be a blimp, but in the next picture it was much higher in the sky and much further to the right (was far-left on the first pic). Nothing would have been able to travel that fast. But, I don't hold it as proof.

Personally, I think the reason it has never really been disclosed or proof given is that the whole religious belief system would then be in question. Even so, if the weak minded still wanted to believe in a god, it would sow panic into the majority of people worldwide and chaos would spread like wildfire. I have never seen a UFO, but I believe that there is just too much evidence to discount them.

Of course there is intelligent life out there- and we have made contact - how else do you think we come up with all this break-thru technology. Pyramids and iPhones. Maybe Steve Jobs is one of them.
