UFOs

The Pentagon is finally admitting there is something to the unexplained phenomenon.  You have trained Navy pilots, radar and video evidence of crafts doing maneuvers that are aerodynamically impossible.  I love UFO stories, real ones and fiction since I was a kid watching reruns of Star Trek, Lost in Space and then Star Wars, Battle Star  Galactica.  

Now we have kind of a change that`s going on subtly, with people that "see something" aren`t maybe necessarily "kooks".   Maybe the Mars rover will find evidence of a ancient civilization on the Red Planet (wiped out by global warming, no doubt). 

I`ve never seen a UFO even though I`m often looking >30° above the horizon.  With my job I go regularly through Elmwood Wisconsin and noticed they have "UFO Days" as a summer celebration and Elmwood does have a UFO history.

So what`s going on with this sudden honesty from the government on this matter?  It could be that society has become secular, believing that Earth is a "privileged planet" only life in the universe and we were some "tornado in a junkyard"  where there`s life.  According to the Bible a antichrist will appear and for the world to accept him, people will have to become open to the idea of Earth not being the center of the universe?

Re: UFOs

Some sort of conspiracy against Good People, for sure.

Turdy still believes the earth is the center of the solar system.

I do enjoy the MAGA/theology mashups.

Re: UFOs

If you are a Bible believing Christian you can see how current society (atheists)  will require softening up to accept that someone on the world stage claiming to be "god".

Plot summary[edit]

A race of aliens arrives on Earth in a fleet of 50 huge, saucer-shaped motherships, which hover over major cities across the world. They reveal themselves on the roof of the United Nations building in New York City, appearing human, but requiring special glasses to protect their eyes and having a distinctive resonance to their voices. Referred to as the Visitors, they reach out in friendship, ostensibly seeking the help of humans to obtain chemicals and minerals needed to aid their ailing world, which is revealed to be a planet orbiting the star Sirius. In return, the Visitors promise to share their advanced technology with humanity. The governments of Earth accept the arrangement, and the Visitors, commanded by their leader John and his deputy Diana, begin to gain considerable influence with human authorities.

Strange events begin to occur. Scientists in particular become the objects of increasing media and public hostility. They experience government restrictions on their activities and movements. Others, particularly those keen on examining the Visitors more closely, begin to disappear or are discredited. Noted scientists confess to subversive activities; some of them exhibit other unusual behaviors, such as suddenly demonstrating hand preference opposite to the one they were known to have.

Television journalist cameraman Michael Donovan covertly boards one of the Visitors' motherships. Donovan discovers that beneath their human-like façade—a thin, synthetic skin and human-eye contact lenses—the aliens are carnivorous reptilian humanoids with horned foreheads and green, scaly skin. He also witnesses them eating whole live animals such as rodents and birds. Donovan, who first took footage of one of the alien ships flying overhead while on duty in El Salvador, records some of his findings on videotape and escapes from the mothership with the evidence. However, just as the exposé is about to air on television, the broadcast is interrupted by the Visitors, who have taken control of the media. Their announcement makes Donovan and his close friend and assistant Tony fugitives pursued by both the police and the Visitors.

Scientists around the world continue to be persecuted, both to discredit them (as the part of the human population most likely to discover the Visitors' secrets) and to distract the rest of the population with a scapegoat to whom they can attribute their fears. Key human individuals are subjected to Diana's special mind-control process called "conversion", which turns them into the Visitors' pawns, leaving only subtle behavioral clues to this manipulation. Others become subjects of Diana's horrifying biological experiments.

Some humans (including Mike Donovan's mother, Eleanor Dupres) willingly collaborate with the Visitors, seduced by their power. Daniel Bernstein, a grandson of a Jewish Holocaust survivor, joins the Visitor Youth and reveals the location of a scientist family, his neighbors the Maxwells, to the alien cause. One teenager, Robin Maxwell, the daughter of a well-known scientist who went into hiding, has a sexual relationship with a male Visitor named Brian, who impregnates her as one of Diana's "medical experiments".

A resistance movement is formed, determined to expose and oppose the Visitors. The Los Angeles cell leader is Julie Parrish, a biologist. Donovan later joins the group, and again sneaking aboard a mothership in search of Tony, who was captured, he learns from a Visitor named Martin that the story about the Visitors needing waste chemicals is a cover for a darker mission. The true purpose of the Visitors' arrival on Earth was to conquer and subdue the planet, steal all of the Earth's water, and harvest the human race as food, leaving only a few as slaves and cannon fodder for the Visitors' wars with other alien races. Martin is one of many dissidents among the Visitors (later known as the Fifth Column) who oppose their leader's plans and would rather co-exist peacefully with the humans. Martin then reveals to Donovan that Tony is dead, a victim of Diana's monstrous experiments. Afterwards, he befriends Donovan and promises to aid the Resistance. He gives Donovan access to one of their sky-fighter ships, which he quickly learns how to pilot. He escapes from the mothership along with Robin and another prisoner named Sancho, who had aided Robin's family in their flight out of occupied Los Angeles.

The Resistance strikes its first blows against the Visitors, procuring laboratory equipment and modern military weapons from National Guard armories to carry on the fight. The symbol of the resistance is a blood-red letter V (for victory), spray-painted over posters promoting Visitor friendship among humans. The symbol was inspired by Daniel Bernstein's grandfather Abraham, a Holocaust survivor.

The miniseries ends with the Visitors now virtually controlling the Earth, and Julie and Elias sending a transmission into space to ask other alien races for help in defeating the occupiers.

Re: UFOs

My theory is they’re our distant, humanoid descendants, time traveling back to save themselves by stopping mankind from destroying itself.

Debate among then currently rages regarding whether the more humane spay-neuter program for MAGAs will suffice or if more extreme measures are necessary.

Re: UFOs

So, your theory is that humans will evolve towards the more communistic Klingons instead of the more logical conservative Vulcans?  Could be.

The Klingons (/ˈklɪŋ(ɡ)ɒn/ KLING-(g)on;[2] Klingon: tlhIngan [ˈt͡ɬɪŋɑn]) are a fictional species in the science fiction franchise Star Trek.

Developed by screenwriter Gene L. Coon in 1967 for the original Star Trek (TOS) series, Klingons were swarthy humanoids characterized by prideful ruthlessness and brutality. Klingons practiced feudalism and authoritarianism, with a warrior caste relying on slave labor
