I honestly liked that. Is that wrong? I thought it was hilarious and would love to know what those church goers thought it meant.

That picture was taken moments before it happened. (Look in the clouds btw if you don't see Him at first.)

There are tens of thousands of accounts. Granted, many of them are very good hoaxes. And many more are reasonably explained away. But there are many that cannot. Last year in Stephenville, TX; about 2 hours south of Ft Worth, there were 2,3 nights of a UFO being sighted. It was observed by a local police officer and F16's from the Joint Services Naval Air Base in Ft Worth responded to the event. They said it was the size of a football field. Think it was a joke ? All the documents and radar records related to those days are missing. Just those days. Coincidence ?

In 1989, the Belgian Air Force responded to several unknown aircraft that entered their air space, they identified them as UFO's and they flew thru Germany and the Germans responded to them. It was covered by the local news agencies as well.

There are numerous accounts of UFO's. Instead of being objective about them, people make excuses of why they should not exist.

Have you ever wondered why Neil Armstrong (first man to step on the Moon in 1969) has never given an interview ? I have.

.

Why not ? Don't we zoom around the beach for a weekend and leave?
Don't we go to the Antarctic, spend a day inspecting the ice shelf and then leave for somewhere else ?
Just because it is a major achievement for us to leave our atmosphere and enter space does not mean that it is difficult for others.

I couldn't imagine what humanities reaction would be to solid proof that ET's exist. Mass chaos or acceptance?

I believe very strongly that there are many, many worlds in the universe that hold intelligent life.

Yes, and I have also wondered why Kurt Cobain killed himself, Michael Jackson went wacko, Eminem became a recluse etc... some people just aren't wired for the limelight, and Neil Armstrong was one of those. Or he saw a bunch of UFO's on his trip to the moon. One of the two.

^^This!

Those people who believe that the human race is the most (..only!) superior/intelligent life form in the universe would seriously question everything that they've ever believed if proof - solid, undeniable proof - was presented to them.

If we didn't have microscopes, you'd have a hard time convincing a human that millions of tiny microscopic bugs live on their skin. Ours bodies are essentially their planet earth. My head is the U.S. and my c0ck is Brazil. It's rather disgusting when you really think about it.

my guess is utter chaos. it's a large % of the world that believes in god, so imagine what it will mean when it all goes kaput with aliens.
