Do you believe governments know something we don't about extraterrestrials?


Do world governments, or maybe even individual countries, know something about life outside of earth that they are unwilling to share with the general population for political reasons?

I think there are some things at Area 51 that the general populace doesn't need to know about.

I don't know if Aliens, but it is possible. Whatever the keep/study out there I don't think the common man could handle the shock from knowing.

Why worry about little green men in our present day world with so much more that is out there to fear and fret about amply enough each day. The Martian in a Bugs Bunny cartoon would get more of my attention.

No way they can keep it secret. Too many people.

Of course, aliens may come in to rescue us from the Syria debacle.

The things that facinate me are more the unexplainable about the things we know, instead of the things we don't. Like all the architectural monuments dispersed around the world, with their intricate designs that are hard to recreate now with modern technology. It facinates me and I'd really love to know how some of these feats were accomplished.

Time scale. We plan, design, build within a decade at worst for most things.

These civilizations did all that over decades with some workers living their whole working life on one project.

Is hard to get your head around what can be accomplished when time isn't necessarily a factor.

I find it fascinating too. But it's not surprising that we don't fully understand. When an entire culture is focused on solving these engineering problems, along with a large percentage of society's creative thinking and manpower, it isn't surprising that they have solutions that we may not have considered.

Yeah why worry about what would be the greatest discovery known to mankind? We got ragheads and shits to worry about.

I think he's more referring to the precision for which many of the very large pieces of most designs were cut and fit moreso than simply scale.

Ex: Sacsayhuaman, Peru

"While the much more famous Machu Picchu is renowned for its views, Sacsayhuaman is a marvel of engineering, confounding Spanish conquerors who were so amazed by the construction, they thought it must be the work of demons.

The largest of the boulders that make up the three dry stone walls of Sacsayhuaman – all carried from a quarry located over three kilometers away – weighs an estimated 120 tons. But the seemingly superhuman feat of moving these boulders is not the most incredible aspect of the ruins: even thousands of years later, the stones of the walls fit together with such precision, you can’t fit a piece of paper between them. This precision, along with the various stone shapes that fit together like a puzzle, is likely the reason that the structure has survived earthquakes that have devastated the area.

I always find it funny when people say things like aliens built the pyramids or stonehenge.

I'm like really? So aliens visit Earth, with very advanced technology that allows them to travel across space, and they decide to stack some big rocks and make Stonehenge? And stack some rocks to make some 3d triangles?

Great feat, aliens.

Arthur C. Clarke presents the most plausible scenario for humanity's initial interaction with something extraterrestrially manufactured in the Rama series.

Anything/anyone out there would be compelled to initially explore space's tremendous emptiness & vast distances using unmanned vehicles for the same reasons that we did.

Our first contact would be when a craft akin to one of our Voyager missions enters our solar system - assuming that it hasn't already and we missed it, which would of course suck, big time.

Yes, but that depends on how you define "extraterrestrial".

They probably know more than city or state governments...

I doubt there is any information that they wouldn't share regarding the ongoing search for life outside of earth.
