Extraterrestrial life (from the Latin words: extra [“beyond”, or “not of”] and terrestris [“of or belonging to Earth”]) is defined as life that does not originate from Earth. It is often also referred to as alien life, or simply aliens (or space aliens, to differentiate from other definitions of alien or aliens). These hypothetical forms of life range from simple bacteria-like organisms to beings far more complex than humans.
How do we really feel about the word Alien? Or should I say how do you really feel about it? Do you believe in Aliens? Do you believe in Extraterrestrial beings?
Some do and some don’t , it is just the way the human mind thinks. Some feel that if you havent had the experience, then it all ceased to exist. Can we really sit here and be so positive that they don’t ? Did you ever happen to think that just maybe their (Aliens) intelligence is so advanced that maybe you have been abducted already and don’t even remember it ? It can be possible you know.There is a very simple answer to this question: “We don’t know, but it’s possible”
No evidence for life has yet been found on any other planet except Earth. However, this does not eliminate the possibility of extraterrestrial life existing on planets we have never been to. Opinions on the prospects for such life are shown below. The only answer that is factually correct is “Maybe”. It is impossible to prove the absence of something. Until evidence proving the existence of extraterrestrials is uncovered, the answer will remain closer to “possibly” than “probably”. According to Answers.com here are some opinions . ,

- First, when I say “aliens” I don’t mean those spacefaring civilizations in science fiction that come to Earth and abduct you. They could exist, but it’s all just fantastic science fiction with no proof. What I mean is life outside of Earth in general. I think it is almost impossible for extraterrestrial life not to exist. It doesn’t matter if we never encounter them, it’s more a matter of probability than anything else. Just think about these numbers: There are about 300 BILLION stars in the Milky Way Galaxy alone. A fraction of these stars are expected to have planets that could support life. That’s still in the billions. There are between 100 and 300 BILLION galaxies in the known Universe, each galaxy containing billions, sometimes trillions, of stars. How can you possibly believe that there is NO chance of life arising on any one planet, orbiting any one star, in any one galaxy? Even if you believe that God directly created life on Earth, it would be extremely arrogant to believe that He created this unimaginably vast Universe just for us.
- Ultimately speaking, the answer is Yes; it is both philosophically and scientifically impossible for there not to be, given the infinite possibilities of Creation. However, “aliens” in the popular sense since World War II as being UFO people is quite another complex question. If you’re earnestly interested in this, begin by reading all the works relative to the subject of UFOs by Dr. Jacques Vallee & by Dr. J. Allen Hynek.
- It is likely that there are aliens. There are so many infinite universes and planets and solar systems that there must be other intelligent life. We don’t know for sure if they exist, and vice versa. My thoughts are that they are likely superior to us. If they have UFOs and can travel millions of light years to find us, they probably have superior technology. But, being ignorant, conceited homo sapiens, most of us would think of them as inferior beings. We probably shouldn’t refer to them as aliens – they would probably consider us aliens. Some of us would be smart enough to recognize them as normal, thinking, living beings. Who knows? They may look just like us. Or they may be like the green aliens many of us draw. No one knows the facts, but there is at least a strong probability that other lifeforms exist in the universe.

Whatever happened to Flight 19—five Navy bombers that vanished on a routine training mission—and the untold numbers of others who have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle? What can we learn from intrepid adventurers like Christopher Columbus, Charles Lindbergh, and Bruce Gernon—the co-author of this book—who survived frightening encounters in the Triangle and lived to tell the tale?
The Fog presents pilot Bruce Gernon’s groundbreaking new theory of the Bermuda Triangle, based upon his own firsthand experiences, eyewitness reports from other close-call Triangle survivors, and leading scientific research. Gernon believes that a rare natural phenomenon may be behind many of the seemingly paranormal happenings in the Triangle, causing time distortions, pilot disorientation, and equipment malfunctions.
But the notorious Bermuda Triangle hasn’t given up all its secrets. The Fog also explores the Triangle’s connection to UFOs, a secret navy base, and a possible link to a vanished ancient civilization.

The Stephenville UFO Incident
Refrence link: http://www.llewellyn.com/journal/article/1542
As winter slowly comes to an end, it can feel like it’s taking forever for nature to arise from its catacombs of rest. This is the time of year when we eagerly await the comfort of warmer temperatures. We gaze at tree tops and inspect for any signs of life, any possible leafy sprout, heralding the green opulence to come.
We are not the only ones who venture out of our sanctuaries as the season turns tranquil. According to Llewellyn author J. Allan Danelek (author of The Case for Ghosts) and UFOs: The Great Debate), UFOs, and the creatures that man them, like warmer weather too. Apparently, the winter months are too cold for them. The best time to spot a UFO would be late spring, summer, and early fall, and your odds of a UFO sighting increase if you live in the states of California, Colorado, or Texas. It seems like they have an affinity for mountainous regions, low dew points, and areas abundant with cattle.
One area with a copious amount of cattle is Stephenville, Texas. This small Texas town, with a population of approximately 17,000, is a leader in the agriculture industry and hailed as the dairy capital of Texas. Since January 8th, 2008, this relatively unknown town has become famous for dozens of reports of UFO sightings. The residents of Erath County (interesting that if you switch two letters, you have “Earth”) have received worldwide attention from the curious, paranormal explorers, and mystery decoders alike. We all want to know exactly what was seen. Assuming the prevailing question is about its appearance, I’m going to pose the question here: What does a UFO look like? Have you seen one? Would you know what to look for?
Based on eyewitness accounts by the residents of Stephenville (as reported by the Associated Press), the UFO was described as having very intense, bright lights. According to many, the UFO was a mile wide, silent, and flying very fast and very close to the ground. Yet, another person said the lights were a mixture of many different colors, changing shape almost every second, as if forming symbols. Perhaps the symbols are a way of attempting communication with us terrain-folk. But why would alien creatures communicate in a way they know we do not understand? If they really do exist, perhaps we have over estimated their grand, futuristic intelligence. Is it possible that they simply do not know how to communicate with us?
In an interesting twist, the government initially denied flying fighter jets in the area at the time of the sightings—practically scoffing at the idea. However, two weeks later, the government said they were, in fact, flying fighter jets around Stephenville at the time of the sightings. Why would the government first deny involvement, and then two weeks later, after all of the hoopla, admit they were there? As reported by National Public Radio, many witnesses saw the UFO being chased away by these dozen or so jet fighters. According to Angelina Joiner, a reporter at the Stephenville Empire-Tribune, the witnesses believe they did not mistake the UFO with an F-16. The witnesses say they know the difference between a UFO the size of three football fields and a government jet. This, of course, goes back to my question in the previous paragraph. Maybe UFOs and their navigators cannot communicate with us because every time they try, they are chased away by our government. Conspiracy theorists: chew on that.
Yet, this conspiracy goes even deeper. Aside from the United States government twisting its story of involvement and telling witnesses they must have seen an optical illusion, they are apparently now threatening witnesses, especially witnesses of credibility (including military personnel, peace officers, and pilots). Ricky Sorrells was one of those witnesses, and he now claims he is being harassed by the government. Ricky has kept quiet since his initial interview with the Associated Press, and he has good reason. Since speaking out about what he saw, Ricky has been subjected to military aircraft flying at low altitudes above his house at all hours of the night, disturbing his family, his sleep, and his livestock. A supposed military official telephoned him demanding that he come out to Ricky’s ranch to speak to him about what he saw, even after Ricky refused the visit. He even reported seeing an ominous looking man dressed in black standing at his ranch’s gate and staring at the back door. Later, Ricky found a bullet on the ground where the man was standing. Could this have been a silent threat from the parka-clad stranger?
And what about the incident a little over a year ago at Chicago O’Hare International Airport, where twelve United Airlines employees saw a metallic, saucer-like craft hovering above the airport? As reported by National Public Radio, officials did not investigate and sought to cover up any eyewitness accounts, according to investigator Jon Hilkevtich.
So, what should you do if you come across what you believe to be a UFO? Based on information from Michael Curta of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), most UFO sighting last only a few seconds to a few minutes. Even so, it can be an adrenaline pumping, terrifying experience, for which he urges you to “remain calm!” Protect yourself from any dangers by hiding or ducking, and try to mentally record any details. If you have a camera, pen and paper, or voice recorder, utilize these items. Do not touch any traces of materials left behind by the UFO. Immediately after the incident, sketch any details you remember. If you must, simply run away from the area if you feel danger is imminent.
In any case, whether I am lucky enough to witness a glance of what Texans saw, or even a glimmer of light speeding across the night sky, I know that I will be enjoying the balmy nights of the approaching summer, staring at the gleaming galaxies and glittering stars above.
