Mars Attack First Picture From Mars MEME on FaceBook - This comical meme popped up on my FaceBook account Thursday (0225-2021) after NASA's car-sized Perseverance rover landed on Mars.
Is there life on other planets?
Humanity might not be ready for that answer
On Thursday, February 25, 2021, people worldwide watched as NASA's car-sized Perseverance rover arrived at its Martian landing site and began to send back panoramic photos.
Many people believe there is no life beyond planet Earth, which I'm afraid I have to disagree with. As a species, we have (or should have) the ability and the capacity to believe some form of life exists in another place.
Little green men - not sure of that, but something else is alive in the universe.
UFOs (unidentified flying objects) have always been a topic that intrigued me.
Is there something in the sky? Maybe.
Actually, I believe humanity is not ready to handle the truth.
Professor Avi Loeb is right... "It would be arrogant to think we are alone."
We can't even grasp the general downfall of our own political system in this country or that people of all colors can't get along for whatever stupid reason they dream up.
UFOS and Aliens, it's possible.
Do I believe that there are people with information, the knowledge that would answer these questions? Yep, and they aren't going to tell us until THEY ARE FORCED TO HAVE TO DO IT!!
Just like the JFK Assassination files, which were sealed five decades ago in the National Archives. Of course, the documents have been slowly released per the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act. Approximately 88% of the files are open in full and released to the public since the late 1990s. However, that remaining 12% is still sealed, and it makes a person wonder why?
Society watches fictional crime shows and real-life documentaries about crime as entertainment. I am one of "those people." Not sure anything in that file would shock me, just saying.
As another date draws near to open more of the JFK files this year \due to some action taken by President Donald Trump, I can't help but think they will probably turn up missing.
I personally don't have a dog in this political fight echoed all over news outlets and social media for four years. I think all that was petty, and people weren't paying attention to the real problems we face in the country. They got caught up in the sideshow.
The Blame Game will begin, and the missing documents will be blamed on the insurrection this past January at the Capitol. The Democrats/Republicans will blame each other, and the sideshow will hide the truth for a while longer.
Back to UFOs and Aliens.
I hope this issue is answered during my lifetime, one way or the other.
Either the files are opened at all levels of government...
Or the spaceships land, and we meet them - our cousins in the universe - in person...
It would be nice if they are intellectual, wise, and can provide helpful technology to make our lives better, create a peaceful world.
Honestly, if they are, it's probably the reason they have not landed before now.
I mean, the movie "Mars Attacks" doesn't even come close to how weird our current potential emissaries could handle that moment... GEESH!!
Then again, maybe Steven Hawking has it right when he said, "Meeting an advanced civilization could be like Native Americans encountering Columbus. That didn't turn out so well."
If it turns out that alien lifeforms smart enough to travel across the galaxy to Earth to place humanity into slavery or some other nefarious means, well, I've watched a lot of movies and television shows about just that.
My favorite thought to ponder comes from astrophysicist Neil deGrasse, the host of "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey."
The show is excellent, but it never really covers what it would mean to humanity if we came into contact with alien life. Tyson believes the bad aliens in movies and television shows reflect human fear and shame about the history of contact between societies at different development levels.
In previous interviews, Tyson has said: "We actually have some evidence of what happens when a high technological culture meets a low-technology culture. Our species bears this out multiple times in the history books, and it doesn't bode well for the culture with less technology. But I would say to fear an alien for that reason is more a reflection of how we know we treat each other than it is on how we could ever possibly suspect an alien to treat us. And so why should we be the measure of hatred in the universe?"
But, as humanity, as a society, are we ready to hear, or have it proven that we aren't the superior life in the universe?
I just want to know if alien life exists, whether it be a fungus on another planet or there really are Vulcans or ETs out there.
People all over the world have reported UFOs in the skies, including a few Clay County residents.
***The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Indiana keeps track of reported UFO sightings throughout the state.
According to MUFON's Case Management Data Base, reports cover sightings in Carbon, Center Point, Cory, and the Brazil area back to 1966.
Some of the cases are as recent as March 2020, and this list of allegations will go back to 2010:
March 6, 2020, around 8:36 p.m., a resident looked at Venus and noticed a total of approximately 15 lights appearing and moving across the sky in even intervals for about five minutes.
October 19, 2019, at midnight, a motorist and a passenger in a car driving east on Interstate-70 near exit 23 spotted a bright trail of light in the sky flashing off while traveling very quickly south before going out of sight.
July 29, 2017, shortly before midnight, a family sitting outside their home saw a flash of strange orange light in the northeast above a building near the hospital. Familiar with helicopters and planes flying overhead, they said it WAS NOT that. They watched what looked like an orb as it got closer, and it quickly moved a distance of two blocks in the blink of an eye, changing directions. It was described as bright, consisting of yellow/orange/red colors rolling inside the orb as it moved silently across the sky, illuminating nearby rooftops slightly. The family reported it was eerily quiet, they couldn't hear the traffic driving by on US 40 a few blocks away, and dogs stopped barking before it disappeared to the southwest.
July 29, 2017, around 8:30 p.m., a Bowling Green family used an iPhone to take several pictures and a short video of an unidentified orb that pulsed blue as it erratically moved across the sky.
September 24, 2015, around 3:15 a.m., a witness reported seeing three separate sets of flashing lights believed to be drones at first. However, a video showed the lights varied in speeds - slowing down and speeding up - while crossing the sky in a curved/wavy pattern until disappearing behind the trees.
September 26, 2014, at 9:30 p.m., a motorist saw an aircraft that made no sound with five green lights was allegedly using a bright light to scan portions of United States 40.
January 14, 2014, around 7 a.m., a pulsating bright light was reported descending to the ground at a high-speed rate, then making a splashing bright light as it disappeared into the ground near Interstate 70.
September 10, 2012, shortly after 11 a.m., three pictures were taken on a cell phone of a strange craft, appearing to be white with a dark bottom, hovering in the sky just north of Brazil.
October 10, 2011, around 9 p.m., two witnesses contacted local authorities about three pictures of an object flashing lights at a vehicle near a bridge/railroad tunnel in a wooded area.
July 10, 2010, at approximately 2:15 a.m., a strange saucer-like object in the sky repeatedly turned blue and gradually become red, with no sound, and appeared to have a yellow-lighted window. Five minutes later, a second identical craft appeared in the sky before the two glided out of sight over the top of a house.
If you log onto indianamufon.homestead.com/, MUFON has seven more case files reported by Clay County residents.
Mulder and Scully on the television show X-Files had a poster "I Want To Believe."
We are taking pictures on Mars right now, about to learn more about that planet than ever before. Who knows, maybe we are the aliens landing on Mars.
Well, this nerd thinks it's time for credible answers regarding UFOs and Aliens.
