I had to vote the joke option, because I think that Aliens are out there, but they only "maybe" have been here...

But, Ive never feared abduction...if anything they should fear it from us, ;)

I have an odd, disabling phobia of zee greys but I am pretty sure it's because of a TV movie I saw on UPN when I was 12. Still, I doubt aliens have been abducting people.

But I choose option 2 just in case they are watching. I like mine organs.

I actually saw a goddamn UFO. One of those big, black, triangle-shaped ones that go fast and low and don't make any noise. Me and a dozen other people saw it. Flew right over my head about a 1000 meters up.

Not saying it was being flown by aliens, because I don't know that. I know it was not a military plane there are no airbases anywhere in Orlando, no secret planes or stealth bombers and the lighting, speed and size and lack of engine noise= not a military plane.

If they are aliens they are sure being obvious about it.

I abducted an alien once. It was pretty embarrassing, neither of us knew what we were doing. Needless to say I made my excuses and left the alien to pick up the bill for the room. It was only slightly more awkward when I took a date home only to find she was a he.

I totally remember this one time when I was totally driving tanked I saw these strange flashing lights in my rear view mirror before I blacked out and awoke being anal probed by a brutish wookie-thing called Bubba!

oh and we jack animals off all the time for farming and such :/ (also I have proof)

Seth Shostak is no authority. I've heard Seth try to debate a UFOlogist before and it was a sad display. He just states things that are flatly false.

His basic view comes down to: 'As long as I avoid looking into it, I can flatly state it doesn't exist.' Hence he always repeats things like 'there's no physical evidence,' even though there's a lot. His answer to almost every question is he never looked into it. I don't know why he even bothers to keep talking about a subject he refuses do any research into.

In the same vein, I could say SETI doesn't exist on the grounds that I refuse to look at a photo of the building. :roll:

Hell no, alien life forms wouldn't want anything to do with the people of earth. They are more interested in INTELLIGENT species.

Depends on what instance you're talking about. In general? Landing prints. Other prints. Crop circles where (unlike the fake ones, of which there are plenty) the molecular structure of the plant matter has been effected inside the circle. Even (admittedly rare) material fragments that can't be achieved by today's technology.

That's without getting into any hard to prove theories about what the government may or may not have. That stuff isn't available.

I never feared that I was going to be abducted by aliens in my lifetime, yet. However, there's a good chance that they may be friendly.

omg theres some hole in the ground it must be aliens instead of some madness where we apply science and look for the simplest explanation!

I have never heard of such evidence interesting that

also no science suggests it to be due to localized columns of ionized air which is irrelevant as lack of explanation =/= alienz!!1

again your jumping to alien involvement when the much more reasonable explanation is rare metals most likely formed in the cold vacuum of space

yes the government is totally that competent

a group of aliens are traveling trillions of light years across time and space to give rednecks handjobs whats not friendly about that?

Angels have been replaced by aliens as an acceptable otherworldy abductor and raptor.

The root cause is usually alcohol in excess.

Surely there are beings out there in the vast blackness (which is ever expanding thereby bringing us further and further apart) who have intelligence exceeding our own.

Let's hope so anyway; the alternative is so depressing (see other topic).

But as rational beings they have no rational impulse to involve themselves with our quirky slowly failing planet, do they?

We humanoids are the alien, the earth, and all except us were here for eons before we arrived.as the cast off debris of a elitist group of galactic proportions powers we were capsuled here and remained inert for thousands of life form transitions until the time of awakening brought us bullyingly into this once tranquil planet to stave off the horrendous beasts the earths eons had created.the worse our previous clans debauchery and deeds,the longer we waited to awaken,and the populace of our planet today is all alien, except the dogs and cats and other beautiful creatures.the sum of our existence is the exacting of our punishment by mother colonies,with many of lesser crimes living out healthy and wealthy lives, and for the worst and greatest part, we await our punishment of death through watching slowly as our citizens suffer health and disease and drug trauma.the ultimate end shall come when those poor choices we made consume all of us in a final and unknown destiny. yes, we are alien planet, and we are here tyo abduct you ,not by stealing your body, but by subverting your minds and will power to resist coommn sense.

... seriously. You should be more worried about an invasion of gnomes from Argentina -- unlike aliens, they don't fly around in space for no good reason, they walk on land, and are just the right height to bite you in a very uncomfortable place.
