My feeling is that our ancient ancestors could touch the earth. They could explore their surroundings. They could even swim and explore the shallow costal waters.

Of course they could not explore the deeper ocean waters. Their imaginations filled in the blanks where they could not explore. They drew gigantic deep sea monsters and they imagined flying gods. They could not touch the heavens or explore the depths of the oceans so it had to be something terrifying and strange or an omnipotent god.

There is no evidence and amazingly with the availability of camera's it seems UFO video's (except things like Starlink) have gone down over the last decade.



It seems the biggest thing to keep UFO's away is clear picture quality.
Kind of like the stories of Jesus,right? Lots of stories how he walked on water, raised people from the dead, was crucified and was seen waking around days later!


Amazing how many people believe those accounts today!

Amazing how many of you get bent out of shape if one of us skeptics asks uncomfortable questions about one of your sacred cows, but it seems to be perfectly OK for you to turn around and insult the religious beliefs of someone like myself!

Well I am not here to attack religion, like you are doing. But I would say that not all of the Bible was ever intended to be taken as 100% truth and as fact.


But that is just a deflection paul. People are frequently wrong.

It was rather insulting and 100% uncalled for. I am not on here pimping a belief system. I feel you are but I am not attacking your belief system, I am looking for evidence.
