    Why would ETs be the same size as us?
    Why would ETs be interested in us?
    Why would ETs try to hide from us?

    Would you send your FTL ship into a planets gravitational well?

    Why would ETs think like us?

    Instead of ET think TimeTravellers from a Future Earth.
    That would explain more about this behaviour

    It would also explain abductions and sporatic sightings

    If it is on the ground is it still considered a UFO?

    FET = Future Earth Traveller
    UTS = Unidentified Time Ship

    Dozens in Texas Town Report Seeing UFO

    STEPHENVILLE, Texas (AP)​

    Several dozen people — including a pilot, county constable and business owners — insist they have seen a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast. Some reported seeing fighter jets chasing it.

    "People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times," said Steve Allen, a freight company owner and pilot who said the object he saw last week was a mile long and half a mile wide. "It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts."

    it was larger, quieter, faster and lower to the ground than an airplane.​

    the object's lights changed configuration​

    very large and without seams, nuts or bolts.​

    federal officials insist there's a logical explanation​

    The Air Force no longer investigates UFOs.​

    I don't believe, despite wanting to.

    [img2=left]http://www.coolscifi.com/gallery/files/1/iwanttobelieve_thumb.jpg[/img2]As much as I want to believe I went with "Something else..." because of a study that I ran across a few years ago that essentially came to the conclusion that the odds of a intelligent life form finding us are about the same as us finding them.

    However, just like we send probes out there it is likely that somebody out there might send a probe here.

    If I was ET I would want to stay as far from Sol as possible.

    i voted something else. though i do believe there is at least one other intelligent culture out there somewhere, whether they have the capabilities to travel into space or not is another question. i do agree with kevin though. the chances of another culture finding us is about as slim as us finding them; the proverbial needle in the haystack.

    anyways. i base my answer on what i believe. i belive it is ourselves watching us. the hype, fears, threats of invasion, the excuses to hold back space exploration till now all to me reek of our own societies fears of the unknown.

    Here is some thoughts I wrote on the recent sighting

    Don't tell me time travel is impossible either. A hundred years ago we thought the speed barrier to be unreachable. We have been wrong...ALOT

    Alien?

    Nope

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The spirula squid's body contains a spiral shell in its back. This shell helps the squid move through the water with its head pointing down. The spirula squid is able to draw its head, arms and tentacles into its body. Sometimes you can find a spiral shell washed up on the beach.

    Here are some more

    Those pictures are amazing - If something as alien looking as that 'Loosejaw' could evolve on Earth then I think it shows we stand little chance of guessing right about what might come from outer space.

    Good fum trying though (y)

    Its amazing some of the creatures they are now finding that were unknown before our current technology level. AND we have only just begun exploring the deep oceans.

    I certainly think that there is intelligent life out there, and I'm completely behind SETI and sending probes, I just think the chances of us finding each other is extremly slim.

    What does everyone think about the idea that we should try and keep quiet and not give our location in space away???

    If we are any example, as soon as we discover a new species it becomes endangered, we either nick its habitat or slap it between two slices of bread and eat it.

    I'd like to think that ET is vegetarian, but then who knows?

    It all depends on your definition of time travel. It has yet to be seen whether somebody traveling near the speed of light will experience time slower than everybody else as has been theorized.
