The Once-Upon-A-Time Promise of Flying Saucers (UFOs)

Copyright 2019, InterAmerica, Inc.
During the earliest years of flying saucer mania, those of us paying attention thought they must be interplanetary spacecraft, flown by beings from outer space.

That’s what we (people like me and maybe CDA) believed or thought.

Inside that thinking was the hope that the beings flying the things, from there to here, could give us knowledge that baffled human beings from time immemorial, like why are we here; that is, why do we exist; what is the meaning of life?

What the cure for illnesses? Why does evil exist? Can we avoid death? And lots of other questions….all of them, some of us thought our visitors might have answers for.

Of course, such infantile thinking didn’t pan out, and flying saucers don’t come from outer space, nor contain wise beings from somewhere else.

And here we are, summed up by the Science Channel’s How the Universe Works Monday night, 2/18/18.

The Big Bang was the topic, and theoretical physicists were quick to tell viewers that they had no real idea how the Universe came into being, choosing “Inflation” as the mechanism that allowed the impossibilities of the Big Bang to be, including the idea that the Universe exists outside the laws of physics, even outside Einstein’s maxim that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

The madness of the topic was pronounceable and palpable: crazy talk that would put non-physicists in an insane asylum.

The Big Bang coming from nothing – ex nihilo – remains a stumbling block for many physicists, even as it is for some of us outside the physicists’ realm.

But then Fred Hoyle’s steady state theory, of continuous creation, to explain the Universe is hard to accept, as such an external process would seem to require a beginning itself.


This is the problem with the idea of an external God. How did God come into being?

That original flying saucer hope (of answers from an advanced visiting species) remains nestled still, in the back of some ufological minds.

But like those notable but addled physicists, there are no answers coming forth from UFOs or those who pretend to research them.

It’s all a gigantic folly.

    What the cure for illnesses? Why does evil exist? Can we avoid death? And lots of other questions..all of them, some of us thought our visitors might have answers for.<-

    Well the answer to some of those question, might be, staring us right in the face..

    Just look at our magnificent Cities, we have all contributed to, in one way or another, for a better way of life, and then in our Autumn years fade away, and the younger generation pick up, where we leave off.

    We are paid slaves, of the City, as well as its paying customers, rebuilding & building upon..

    I believe we are all here for a reason, to rebuild "THAT" which existed long ago, in prehistory, that was destroyed in a cataclysmic event, and now, we are in the throws of starting all over again..

    As for:.. -> How did God come into being?<-

    I was with the understanding, that God has always existed, thus, the univers is too eternal in its vastness, for anyone to comprehend, or its creation, if it ever had one. In my opinion, Science is making it up, as they go, and very imaginative, along the way, for our benefit, to swallow..Hook Line & sinker:..I'm the fish that got away:)..........

  • " like why are we here; that is, why do we exist; what is the meaning of life?"
    Best to watch Monty Python's 'The Meaning of Life' . . .

    "How did God come into being?"
    A god, or multiple gods, are the invention of Man in a vain and ultimately frustrating attempt to explain the unexplainable . . .

  • Life is loaded with lies sometimes, isn't it David?..and it is "SAD, for the one" who has been taught that,..that lie, is the TRUTH to be exorcised in good faith, such as a family of faithful Christians, that believe in Jesus Christ as their savior..

    After all, Jesus Christ WAS a man who lived & died on the cross for the sins of man, some 2000yrs. ago..Is that true or not?.. So I would say, that most Christians exorcise in good faith, that they are NOT living a life of lies..

    But Truly; Do we know absolutely, without doubt, that:..

    -> A god, or multiple gods, are the invention of Man in a vain and ultimately frustrating attempt, to explain the unexplainable.<-

    I shudder to consider that, David!?..The God or gods, you talk of, may not be what you think, and out of your reach of understanding, for the moment..

    Consider this, David, If you lift the lid of: [Pandor's Box] All hell could break loose..think about that..the instability of Society for starters, leading to violence & a sociol upheaval in general..

    You see! Religion, has some "control" over Peace & good will to mankind..

    Got it?..Keep the Peace!:)..........
