There's a lot of talk about a pending government report about aliens, but early insight into the data suggest the government is willing to admit there are UFOs -- Unidentified Flying Objects -- but they are not willing to admit they are extraterrestrial; i.e., ALIENS. Well, that's pretty typical of the government, isn't it. (I worked for almost 30 years for the government, so … I'll just leave that there.)
A former top national intelligence official hinted that an upcoming government report on UFOs will include information that cannot easily be explained. So if it's not aliens, what the heck is going on? Let's look at a few of the theories.
It's China. Really? Some of the experts don't think so. Experts say the country is frequently behind the curve on technology in comparison to the US, making it unlikely that they're conducting that level of high-tech surveillance on US military operations.
It's Russia. Well, probably not. Russia shared much of its UFO information with the US following the fall of the Berlin Wall, experts said. "They shared a lot of their UFO information with us, and by the way, they were seeing the exact same thing in their skies that we were," the expert said. That eliminates Russia as a suspect.
Singer/Songwriter Mylie Cyrus claims she was chased by aliens. Of course she was. They heard there was a Party in the USA and … (wait for it) … they came in like a wrecking ball.
It's our own government, and they're intentionally lying to us. Please! They would NEVER do that. Right?
Point: George Lucas has gotten really good at special effects. Counterpoint: Jar Jar Binks.
Steve Bassett, the executive director of Paradigm Research Group, thinks US intelligence is preparing to end a so-called “74-year truth embargo” after an alleged UFO event in Roswell. But Fox Mulder insists "The Truth is out there."
So let's discuss Fermi's Paradox. First of all, what is it? The Fermi paradox, named after Italian-American physicist Enrico Fermi, is the apparent contradiction between the lack of evidence for extraterrestrial civilizations and various high estimates for their probability (such as some optimistic estimates for the Drake equation).
The following are some of the facts that together serve to highlight the apparent contradiction: (Thanks Wikipedia!)
There are billions of stars in the Milky Way similar to the Sun.
With high probability, some of these stars have Earth-like planets.
Many of these stars, and hence their planets, are much older than the Sun.
If the Earth is typical, some may have developed intelligent life long ago.
Some of these civilizations may have developed interstellar travel, a step humans are investigating now.
Even at the slow pace of currently envisioned interstellar travel, the Milky Way galaxy could be completely traversed in a few million years.
And since many of the stars similar to the Sun are billions of years older, Earth should have already been visited by extraterrestrial civilizations, or at least their probes.
However, there is no convincing evidence that this has happened.
So to nutshell it for you, Fermi says while aliens may or may not exist, we cannot disprove their existence as things stand now. Or as Dr. Lauren Grayson-Pierce would say, "Absence of evidence, is not evidence of absence."
On that note, The Alien Accord, book 3 of The Veritas Codex is now available for pre-order. The official publication date is June 22nd. The government may not tell you the truth, but Lauren and The Veritas Codex team is out to find it.
