I've heard that same lame bullcrapola ever since Sputnik was launched about how spending $$ on space exploration and aerospace technology was wasteful. The repeating quote is always "why don't we spend it on poor people on Earth?" when the person saying that has absolutely no history of monetary benevolence towards the poor himself. It's just a knee jerk reaction that has a feel-good sound to it.

The point is we haven't got the slightest clue on what is going on in the cosmos relative to our time involved in its study. We've been in space less that 50 years! How the hell can anyone say we know it all or even know something substantial? We don't know what or who is out there. We haven't even been in our own backyard yet- our solar system.

...hey guys, I only meen, its stupid to belief, all lifeforms in our universe have
the time to watch over us! If these intelligent Aliens havn´t better things
to do with there lifetime as watching mankind, wow, what boring must been
there life anyway... :wink: :D 8) :)

Ok, for all readers:

1. Ufo´s, yes!
2. Intelligent lifeforms on other planets, yes!
3. Visits, watching or captures, no!
4. Timetravelers as Ufonauts, maybe!
5. Prototyps or wetherthings as Ufos, yes!

So, thats my way of thinking. Its not a must for you! Think whatever you want... :wink: 8) :)

No worries there mate. It's all in good fun. I just love a good debate is all.

You hit it right on the head there twitch. Just about the same story no matter what science we are talking about. Genetics, Astrophysics, theoretical mathimatics, etc, there's always that bunch that would think it better to spend time on something else. And most of the time, it comes down to they don't really even have a clue as to what it is their marching or preaching against.

Oh look, there went something in the sky... But I have no clue as to what exactly it was... :D

If screenplay writers can dream up a plausible and logical proceedure how less advanced civilizations should be addressed I figure there are other brains in the universe that have come to the same conclusion. If we were to find a planet with societies on par to Earth's of about 5000 years ago we'd think twice or 3 times before turning their world upside down by revealing our existence and alien technology.

Perhaps in other corners of the galaxy there is an abundance of intelligent life not separated by vast distances and Earth and it's beings are no big whoop for anyone that found us from out there. They already know of several different races or intelligent species so we aren't any more than an oddity of less advanced beings. They probably don't interact with a world with bipeds they've found in the Stone Age times either.

I think UFOs are anything but space craft. After all it means: Unidenified Flying Object. I see nothing about aliens in the name :roll:

Sean David Morton, who has promoted himself as "one of America's greatest psychics" and as the "world's foremost UFO researcher", has filed a one-million dollar defamation lawsuit against UFOWATCHDOG.COM.

Morton was the subject of a series of UFOWATCHDOG.COM articles, most notably 'The Shameless Psychic and His Prophecy of Lies' in which many of Morton's claims were called into serious question. Morton was invited to directly comment on the story, which was later published in February 2001. Morton failed to respond to several invitations for comment, including a posted open invitation on the UFOWATCHDOG.COM website.

In his lawsuit, Morton alleges all information pertaining to him published by UFOWATCHDOG.COM is "false", including an autobiography and a list of production/writing credits both authored by Morton himself. This leaves the question of why Morton would actually claim something written by him is false.

UFOWATCHDOG.COM editor Royce J. Myers III calls the lawsuit "completely meritless and an absolute abuse of the judicial system." Myers further added, " Mr.Morton is simply trying to use the courts by trampling on the First Amendment in an attempt to silence one of his numerous critics."

When asked about Morton's claim of being libeled, Myers said, "Mr.Morton's allegations are pure fantasy, as are the vast majority of his UFO and psychic claims. Mr.Morton was invited to comment and has, by choice, continually failed to respond or comment. Mr.Morton has been aware of UFOWATCHDOG.COM since it debuted in February 2001. You can't hold someone else accountable for your own failure to speak up."

"Mr.Morton apparently will go to any length in trying to silence someone with something to say about him, as he has named UFOWATCHDOG.COM's webhost as a defendant, which is ludicrous. Thanks to Mr.Morton's baseless lawsuit, the webhost has shut down the UFOWATCHDOG.COM website. The webhost has nothing to do with the content of the website. The lawsuit is clearly retaliatory and intended to stifle any debate about Mr.Morton's public claims about UFOs, the paranormal, and his alleged credentials. Essentially, he's trying to scare anyone from engaging him in the eye of the public and apparently is under the assumption that issues pertaining to UFOs and the paranormal are one-sided debates solely for him to participate in." Myers stated.

Prominent Los Angeles civil rights attorney Carol A. Sobel, representing UFOWATCHDOG.COM, responded to the complaint. On February 20, 2003, Sobel filed a motion to have the lawsuit dismissed on the grounds that Morton is "...prevent[ing] Defendants from engaging in protected expressive activities -- namely calling into question [Morton's] self-proclaimed national expertise on extraterrestrial life, UFOs, and the paranormal."

Filed under a special California state law enacted in 1992 to combat what the California Legislature called "...a disturbing increase in lawsuits brought primarily to chill the valid exercise of the constitutional rights of freedom of speech", the state law protects people from defamation and other SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) lawsuits. The motion allows for the lawsuit to be quickly dismissed when such complaint arises from the exercise of First Amendment petition and free speech rights on an issue of public interest.

Sobel noted in the motion to dismiss the lawsuit, "The existence of extraterrestrial life is unquestionably a matter of great public interest. People all over the world are engaged in research to answer the question of whether such life exists. Needless to say, this matter is quite controversial, bringing with it vehemently contrasting positions based on scientific and religious grounds."

A hearing on the motion is scheduled for March 13, 2003 at 8:30AM in L.A. Superior Court in department E at 825 Maple Ave., Torrance, California.

Since early 2001, UFOWATCHDOG.COM has been a news source for both UFOs and the paranormal. Most notably, UFOWATCHDOG.COM has challenged a number of the claims made by well known UFO personalities, has provided commentary on the UFO and paranormal fields, as well as having exposed UFO hoaxes all in an effort to further more rational and scientific debate regarding issues such as UFOs and the paranormal.just thought this bit of infomation you guys may find interesting.
