Is Harry Reid A UFO Crackpot?

For decades people have been trying to explain away sightings by some very reliable witnesses; explanations given, range from misidentifications to the worst, by claiming the witnesses as crazy or delusional. I wonder how many other things that have been reported on a fairly regular basis is the result of "delusional witnesses".

This is an excerpt from a new documentary just released, titled The Phenomenon

Those people that try to disprove extraterrestrial existence are all idiots!
There are as many planets, with possible intelligent life, possibly millions of years advanced than us, numbering the grains of sand, on all of Earth’s beaches.
ET’s do exist! They have been visiting Earth for thousands of years and live amongst us!
I was friends with a NASA scientist, that was friends with all of the NASA astronauts and he told me secret stories of what happened on the space missions and it’s very incredible.

That's highly likely.

That's highly unlikely for the same reason their existence is higly likely.

No doubt, several lifetimes worth of work.

Which planet... or won't he tell you, for fear that we might go there too.

Planet XX in the Cerveza System about 10 light years of beer away from Earth. You can see the star that Planet XX orbits. Here is the chart they gave me to navigate the night sky.

I did aircraft crash investigation in the Air Force. The school was 5 months long and a large chunk was dedicated to psychology/physiology of humans and the weaknesses therein. This also covered witnesses and their testimony to events. You would have the wreckage, possibly video, and, yet, people would describe things absolutely not possible and completely counter to the factual evidence but you have to gather all the information you can. Never heard anything attributed to aliens, however.

One I did hear attributed to aliens: An A-10 has a major mechanical issue on a bombing range at night south of Phoenix. Landing with large EXTREMELY flammable objects is a bad idea and this guy is carrying 8 LUU-2 flares in one pod. Size-wise, imagine 10-12 coke cans stacked on top of each other. These are parachute flares that are expended over target areas to illuminate them for visual attack and these flares burn for @5 minutes and illuminate at @ 2 million candle power. So, you can not jettison these flares, only expend them so this guy en-route back to Luke AFB starts to kick them out. I think he was 5,000 to 10,000 feet so these flares do what they were designed to do, they fall, a parachute opens, the flare lights off, it burns for about 5 minutes, and then it burns out. And, there is string of 8 of them that do this sequentially and someone gets this on video and the "mystery" lights make it on the news and later ends up on some History Channel show about aliens.

Okay, it's worse than I thought. I just Googled "mystery lights over Phoenix" and a 2018 video came up commenting on the event from 21 years ago and "It's still a mystery." So, A) there are some really gullible and/or stupid people out there, and B) I am getting freakin' old.

https://youtu.be/K9AVPr3jQMY

Here's a video recently that I find very credible and very unexplained. https://youtu.be/CnIG-i2WCfg Looking at the sensor video, it is like nothing I've ever seen. Very, very odd. If you search for them, there are also some video of intercepts off the east coast, as well.

btw…we have been able to look human for 165 earth years AND we can read minds, become invisible, do a fire beam from our eyes and control objects with our mind.

maybe you should answer this ad IN THE PERSONALS OF THE NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS: i'm an alien seeking to start a new life on a renewed planet. i have been here for the entire holocene. My virus will soon dehumanize this planet. Once the humans die off I would like to meet with you. I know of a wonderful garden where we could get together and start a wonderful new world on the edge of the milky way

Agree. I believe there's stuff flying around that I can't identify.

Doesn't mean it's of extraterrestrial or supernatural origin. Just means I dunno what it is or can't understand the natural phenomenon that causes events that are perceived as anomalous.

I agree with the cartoon a few posts back. When an alien goes on vacation they skip Earth. Don’t contact or give those humans anything useful the first thing those idiots will do is try to make a weapon out it

fify -- you travel through 10 light beers and you will be on another planet. Hopefully that planet has a bathroom.

Or a six-pack of regular Heavy Beer.

I just read the comments on that "Phoenix mystery lights" video and wasn't surprised by the people who still prefer woo over explanations of more plausible but mundane scenarios.

The 2020 Super Cooties Apocalypse pandemic has finally disabused me of any remaining notion that people who study and practice medicine, science and law are inherently any more rational than anyone else. Some of them are family, friends and real world acquaintances who are practicing lawyers and medical professionals. And some of them still prefer woo, conspiracy theories and glittery sky unicorns over mundane reality and the tedious work of scientific methodology and the frequent disappointments of a logical approach.

If anything, these folks seem to believe that the entire "pandemic hoax" also proves that aliens and demons are real. Apparently this translates to Harry Reid's UFO chemtrails spraying the US with a hoax virus that fools people so convincingly that more than a quarter million of them died from placebo panic. Or something. I'm still trying to puzzle out this one.

BTW, the military pilot's story was interesting. Probably the most persuasive I've heard. He sounds like a guy accustomed to routine post flight debriefings, no attempt at dramatizing what he observed. Virtually every other so-called witness I've heard and seen has huge "gimme a break" warning flags.

I'm still inclined to regard such anomalies as Earth origin, either man-made and classified, or natural and as-yet undiscovered and unexplained. But it doesn't persuade me of superior extraterrestrial intelligence/technology. We're still such a relatively primitive and mentally unevolved species that there's no reason for any advanced ET entities to bother with secrecy or colluding with human conspirators. They'd either conquer us outright or tell us to piss off because we're not worth the trouble. At best ETs are as Douglas Adams described -- adolescent ETs trolling us for fun, while their parents warn them to stop teasing the stupid monkeys.

The Air Force has managed to build, and keep secret, some pretty incredible machines and I've occasionally heard small bits of information from people involved in some seriously black programs. These are very, very classified programs usually conducted in a remote desert under the cover of darkness but the aircraft have occasionally been allowed outside their guarded airspace. Could these things be something from an advanced test program? Maybe, I suppose. But my 28 years in the military, 4000 fighter hours, and engineering degree can't make sense of the "tic tac" video. (An interesting look at this type of program is a book titled "Red Eagles" by Steve Davies which describes the acquisition of Russian built MiG aircraft and building several squadrons of them to fly against U.S. pilots over the Nevada desert. Between the methods "acquiring" the jets, methods used to maintain and find parts for the jets, and finding pilots to fly them operationally and keep the whole process secret is incredible. You can also Google Constant Peg which was the program name. I never got to fly against the MiGs but I have flown against a Hind helicopter. The "petting zoo" at Nellis AFB. https://aviationphotodigest.com/nell...ning-facility/ )
