UFOs: Are there things we see in the sky that we can't identify? Yep. Hence, Unidentified Flying Objects.
Is there life on other planets? Probably.
Is that life flying here and hiding, while abducting rednecks gigging frogs in Mississippi and crazy New Jersey cat ladies while staying hidden? No.
If aliens exist, they would probably either land and say howdy, or just come and conquer us with their superior technology.
What if we are the most advanced species in the Galaxy?
Why do alien crafts have lights on them, if they travel through space at > than light speed? They would just pass their headlights.

I’ve actually rode that thing. The kids from SCAD pop out from behind the grave stones in the old cemetery and put on a little show on the sidewalk telling about the over turned grave markers.

For when they slow down silly. Duh.

Had a neighbor once that was an astrophysicist. He built GT's big radio telescope down near Macon. He now works for SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence). He's reviewed thousands of hours of noise recordings coming from space. He said he's never heard anything that the supercomputer couldn't identify as man-made (i.e.: old satellites), in more than 20 years of data.

All that said, his favorite saying was "If there's nothing else out there, what a terrible waste of space."

It’s easy to see haints. Plenty of videos and pictures of Nancy pelosi and Hillary.

I agree with this. The universe is to vast for there to be nothing else.
Agreed. But, that's a long stretch to that something else that's there manufacturing flying saucers, flying them here across unfathomable distances, and zipping around earth incognito for decades or centuries looking up people's booties.

Look up The Blue Lady of Ada’Hi. (Couldn’t get it to post).
Folk lore or truth? Maybe. I was told about this shortly after I bought my property on Hagans mountain. Yep I bought 30 acres. Had a few strange things happen.
The grand kids say the house is spooky but it’s just old and groans a lot.

What I find both strange and telling, is that as time goes by any new information we get on UFOs by our government seems to support their existence, not in any way dispelling it. Like most top secret stuff the feds do, the info is compartmentalized with few knowing the whole picture.

Bigfoot,….no
ghosts (spirits),…..maybe
UFOs from beyond earth,……yes
I pretty much have a similar attitude.
Bigfoot - a hard "no"

Ghosts - might be something that science cannot yet explain, but there is nothing supernatural at play

UFO's/aliens - No alien visits yet. That said, I firmly believe in life outside our planet because the math supports it. There are countless planets/moons in the universe that could support complex life, and we already have at least one example that complex life is possible - that being Earth. I've never heard of, nor can I think of a grand total of "one" of anything existing. :unsure: However, the math also supports that the incredible distances between galaxies means that it is unlikely that any complex/intelligent lifeforms will ever visit each other. I'm not saying that there are not aliens more advanced than Earthly humans who might accomplish incredible space travel techniques - that would be arrogant. But as far intergalactic travel? The physics & logistics don't support it IMHO. That said within my lifetime there is a pretty good chance that human scientists will find outside Earth microbial life within our solar system. Earth used to only have microbial life back in the day and will return to only having microbial life after Earth's favorable conditions go south. This is my strongest motivation to live a long life (with a sound mind intact obviously). My second strongest motivation - and the more likely occurrence - is scientists being able to consistently duplicate the complete process of abiogenesis.

Nope. In over half a century of life on this planet, I have never experienced a haint, and that's being in some places that are supposedly ate up with them. I think when you leave this earth, you leave it. I also notice the type of folks that seem to see a lot of them. People's minds are what's hainted.
HA! :ROFLMAO: Big yes to that last sentence. If you have ghosts on your mind, you will see them everywhere. Granted I have personally experienced things that I cannot explain - and I don't believe in the supernatural in any way, shape or form. But just because something is "unexplained" that doesn't make it supernatural. The human brain/mind is incredibly complex and does not function with 100 percent efficiency at all times.

Maco light. Saw it twice while parked on the abandoned railroad track. As it touched the car it disappeared and reappeared instantly on the other side.
Great video. But when the first guy was talking it sounded like he said "Joe Biden" instead of Joe Baldwin! :ROFLMAO: I hope Biden doesn't watch this video - it will be one more "tall tale" to add to his ramblings. Actually.... Joe Biden looking for his head does not sound that far-fetched.

Spook lights are real. The Brown Mountain Lights, and the ones on the Thomas Divide in the Smokies near here are very real, and have been seen for hundreds of years. I don't think they have anything to do with haints, though.
I agree that the lights are real, since they are observed by a variety of people over a long period of time. What causes the lights is just unexplained (for now anyway).

UFOs:...

The speed of the light emitted from the craft would be constant and relative to the speed of the craft. If the craft were stationary and emitted a light then accelerated to greater than the speed of light then it would be possible to pass their own headlights.

However the only logical reason for lights on the exterior of a vehicle travelling in space would be to make that vehicle more visible from other vantage points. My theory is that UFOs have lights so that the haints can know to get out of the way. LOL

As far as alien life goes, I guess I consider things a little differently. Most people think like you do, that the sustainability of other life forms need to fit with our earthly scientific knowledge parameters. What allows life to exist here can’t necessarily be applied to other planets and their compositions. Even as we know the reaction between different chemicals, materials, tissues, etc. here in our atmosphere, we can’t say the same for distant conditions. What sustains life somewhere else may be very different than here and what we understand.

I went on a short (about an hour) "ghost tour" in Savannah about ten years ago. Interesting & entertaining family fun, but nothing convincing.
