Well, since "UFO" stands for Unidentified Flying Object, and the object in your youtube post wasn't readily ID'd, then I'd concede that yeah, it was a UFO. But let's not confuse UFO with being synonymous with "spacecraft from another planet." The object in the video was, in my opinion, far too rudimentary in it's movements and it's flashing light--jeez, I don't even think it was an LED--to be anything but manmade. Since cosmologists have ruled-out the possibility of intelligent life in our own solar system, or for that matter, from anyplace closer to us than 4 light-years (the distance of the nearest star, excluding of course our own sun) a craft that could transport ET's from such vast distances would have to use power technologies far, far beyond what we know of. So, sorry, but that humpty looking thing in the video just didn't look like it has the sack to for such a trip.

I always hate it when someone who thinks they are smart and clever says, "Yeah its a UFO, but not a alien spacecraft because a UFO is just an unidentified flying object." They know what you are talking about and it has become SUCH A HUGE cliche' to use it.

Also UFO has become synonymous with alien spacecraft, whether its appropirate usage of the word or not. So just deal with it and let the cliche' go, its been done to death.

But the fact remains that UFO does stand for Unidentified Flying Object, and thus does not by proxy refer to an alien craft. Look, we're dealing in the realm of science here, so it's important to be accurate, otherwise any arguments are moot. Look up the phrase "empiracle method" which is used in science.
And, uh...cliches become cliches usaully because they're true.
Deal with it.

My husband and his brother saw one when they were kids . I flew over their back yard in Georgetown SC .

Said it had the most powerful 'hum' and just hovered over them for a couple minutes then slowly left . it was huge [ took up most of area over yard ] and he said they could have hit it with a rock it was so close . Round with lights like jewels on it . Was the most powerful quite sound .

Later on in the years I read in Ezekiel about wheels that described the same thing . We didn't know it was there in the Bible , neither of us were from religious families .

Many flying objects in the Bible and other anciant books .

I am hoping for eternity for myself and loved ones and I know there is a spirit world for a fact . Also we would be very naive to think we are the most intelegent life form in the universe, imo . Especially how foolish we act at times .
