36% of Americans believe in UFOs, that is, though most Unidentified Aerial Phenomena are actually explained as such mundane things as misidentified meteorological phenomena, astronomical phenomena, aircraft, and so on, there's ~ 5% that are as yet unexplained and that these unexplained UFOs are machines from somewhere other than Earth.

Have you ever observed a UFO that has never been sufficiently explained? Do you believe that some unexplained UFOs are machines from somewhere other than Earth? If so, why (what are your reasons or arguments for believing so)? What evidence is there to support your belief?

Yes, now that I think of it, it seems similar to my puppies chasing a car down our road. But maybe the aliens could atleast do something with the plane, if they catch it?

 

Being a huge Sci Fi nerd I sincerely hope there is life of some type outside of our sphere of observance.

Have any visited our planet? I dont think so but I can not say with a 100% certainty no.

Any civilization advanced enough to travel the expansive and hostile gulfs of space should be able to learn all they need of us from our transmissions. They should not have to visit us.

And if they have studied us I see absolutely no reason why they would want to visit our planet.

I was born here and I dont want anything to do with it.

And I'm an idiot who only knows he does not want to live with a savage bunch of insane religious fanatics who deny reality and reason.

An advanced species peaceful enough to have come together and escape their own isolated piece of the cosmos would have exactly zero interest in contacting us.

Unless they came to say goodbye to a doomed species of gun monkey.

"I was born here and I dont want anything to do with it."

Transference of personal disenchantment to an unknown subject? 

"Unless they came to say goodbye to a doomed species of gun monkey."

Knowing what the future holds for the 'gun monkey', seems to be a claim for infalability. Aliens that 'might' visit, could have just about any motivation for checking us out. I hope for anthropologists, or shaman, we could use a good smuging... 

Every species that has ever existed died out or will at some point in time.

I believe its called mortality.

I apologize if I have offended any gun monkeys.

Gun Monkey Winner.

"Unless they came to say goodbye to a doomed species of gun monkey."

There are 270 million firearms among a population of 311 million people in the United States. That's a lot of gun monkeys. You're not going to get rid of them any time soon.

"And I'm an idiot who only knows he does not want to live with a savage bunch of insane religious fanatics who deny reality and reason."

"I was born here and I dont want anything to do with it."

92% of Americans believe in god(s), that's a broad spectrum from deist to polytheist. 5% of Americans are confirmed atheists.

Evidently Americans want their god(s) and their gun(s).You'll just have to learn to live with the gun monkeys and the believers. Or you can always move to North Korea where atheism is enforced (the only country left where free religious activity no longer exists). And there are only 130 thousand guns among the civilian population in a country of 24 million people.

 

I own guns, I live in the USA, how many guns do I need to acquire before I can call myself a "Gun Monkey"?

Will I get a plaque for my wall?

Is there a GMA (Gun Monkey Association)?

I am beginning to like the Gun Monkey label, this idea may have legs.

Its all yours.

Run with it.

Just be sure the safety is on.

Hahaha....I loved the comment at the end.

I also like that he racks another round when he stands up...time for round number two...gene pool about to be thinned. :)

Actually the pic I posted above is from a video where someone handed a chimp a loaded full auto AK, the ensuing result is priceless.

Here ya go,

Wow, duffish.

I think something like this happen to me 'once', while building rockets in high school. Atleast I did not trip over the damn thing...LOL

I do not rule out the possibility of a god(s) existing although it is highly improbable and unlikely, especially when one considers what we know about our physical universe and our insatiable desire to live forever. As to UFOs there are many. As Tyson suggested emphasis should be on the "U" part. The universe we reside in is vast and I cannot deny a possibility there being lifeforms elsewhere. Verifiable evidence remains the key concern as it is with the belief in supernatural beings.
