Almost everybody agrees that the chances for complex life to emerge elsewhere in the Universe are very high, but it may be impossible for it to ever reach our planet, due to the unimaginable distances among the Cosmos. But UFO’s have been seen on the sky for ages, therefore many speculated that they are actually ships of aliens coming to Earth to destroy or help us. Some other people are interpreting the UFO sightings in different ways.
So what’s the truth? And what exactly may cause people to say that an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) is automatically some aliens’ personal flying gadget used for moving from one planet to another? What we know for sure is that humans have seen UFO’s not since a couple of years, but for millennia.
Diana Walsh Pasulka, author of American Cosmic: UFOs, Religion, Technology and a professor of philosophy and religion at UNC Wilmington tells Popular Mechanics, says: “Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and all the major religions actually have pictures and anecdotes of ariel phenomenon,”
Pasulka goes on by saying that in most religions, a human makes contact with a heavenly figure. Therefore, angels and gods are the UFO’s in this case, if they exist in a objective reality and not only in humans’ imagination.
Pasulka says by the 19th century people began to shift from a religious interpretation to a more technological one, when they wanted to explain a UFO sighting.
Thomas Edison said “you can take it from me that it is a pure fake…I have no doubt that airships will be successfully constructed in the near future but…it is absolutely impossible to imagine that a man could construct a successful airship and keep the matter a secret.”
Some Military Officials believe in the possibility of the UFO’s being alien ships
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was told by a branch of the U.S. military that “it was not entirely impossible that the objects sighted may possibly be ships from another planet such as Mars.” Other memos of FBI stated that “some military officials are seriously considering the possibility of planetary ships.”
Let’s be honest: the possibility for ships from other planets is very unlikely since humanity has been seeing UFO’s for thousands of years but no trace of an actual alien. And many of the claimed UFO’s might have been just the result of imagination, hallucination, fatigue or the mere desire to attract attention
