Do you believe in Aliens?

posted by Lonnie on - last edited - Viewed by 820 users

Just finished reading a book called 'The Uninvited'. It's about the Coombs family who experienced alien activity and visitations on their farm in 1977 in Wales, UK.

It was ok. After that I found a link to a BBC series called Britain's Closest Encounters.

also, does anyone remember that budget made movie about aliens visiting these people in America? It was shot in a Blair Witch style with a home video camera. I really want to see it again. Just cant remember what it was called. I remember two guys see some aliens experimenting on cows or something and the aliens look up and shoot one of them with the laser beam then the dudes run off.

I'm interested in the paranormal, but not sure I beleive everything I read and hear about.

how about you?

  • I believe in Aliens. But by that I mean that I believe there are other forms of life out there in space. I think it's more possible to find forms of plant life or micro organisms than fully devolped species simular to humans.

    Many of the UFOs can be explained as natural occurances but the more believable ones could very well be government creaded crafts or weapons of some kind. However, they could also be alien space ships. I'm a very open minded person. I take in all the theories and put them together to form my own conclusions but don't really stick to them untill I believe they are fact.

    I'm not sure what the movie is you're talking about but it sounds cool.

    As for paranormal stuff. I'm open minded about that too. I'm also very interested in it. Ghosts, Aliens, Big Foot, Loch Ness Monster, you name it. I find them all very fascinating. But I'm not fully convinced that any of them exist. Although I'm fully open to the possiblity that they do.

  • I'm open minded too to any possibilites.

    I found that movie I was talking about:

    It s a bit cheesey now I'm older and make films of my own, but still, not bad. Re-watching it now as I speak. I wonder if the guys who made The Blair Witch Project were influenced by this movie??? After all it seems it came out before TBW and had they done some internet marketing they might of made big bucks?

  • I can believe there is intelligent life in space but don't believe they have visited Earth as they are millions of lightyears away.

  • Maybe they've developed a version of the Alcubierre Drive.

  • I do believe that aliens are very real, though I think that's kind of an insensitive way to describe foreigners.

    Okay, okay, joking aside! I wouldn't be surprised if there is some kind of life far, far out there, way, way beyond what we know.

  • I would say that there is a strong possibility of non-earthly life out there, yeah, but until there's proof I don't see a reason to believe it. :p

  • Do I believe in aliens? Absolutely.
    Do I believe that aliens have visited Earth? Absolutely not.

  • The movie you're referring to sucked, but I think you're referring to that monster movie, can't remember the name of it. It had that giant monster at the end and those little ones in the subway...anyone??

    Cloverfield. Although that's not the title Lonnie is thinking of as it's neither low budget, involves cows or even features an alien lifeform (the creatures in Cloverfield came from the deepest depths of our ocean). I love Cloverfield so much that I own both the single disc, plus the double disc DVDs, as well as the Blu-ray version. I get a llittle tired of people slagging off something that means so much to me but to each their own and all that.

    As Lonnie stated the film he was thinking of was 1998's Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County, which actually beat the Blair Witch to kick starting the popularity of the captured footage horror genre that is so prevalent today. It's gone on to gain something of a cult following.

    To answer your question Lonnie, The Blair Witch Project was released during '99, meaning that Alien Abduction came out the previous year but both film would have been in pre-preduction / production at roughly the same time so Blair Witch wouldn't have ripped off Alien Abduction in any way. None the less, it must have been frustrating for the makers of Alien Abduction to see Blair Witch get all the praise and kudos a year after the fact.

    That's it, exactly. There might well be another species that somehow resembles us out there. But of course, they're only a blip on the radar of time, will exist only for some thousands of years just like we do, and they are so incredibly far away from us that there is no possiblity whatsoever that we might see them one day.
