Mythical Wednesday: Unidentified Flying Objects – Real or Hoax?

I stumbled across this article a while back and thought it was rather interesting:
Now I don’t know about you, but I’ve believed in UFO’s since the first time I heard of them. I guess it’s one of the main reasons I like science fiction. My belief was backed up by the idea that we can’t be alone in a galaxy/universe; it just doesn’t make sense and it’s very arrogant to think we are the only intelligent life form, and I use that word sparingly.
Perhaps the reason these alien beings haven’t revealed themselves is because as a society, we are still pretty primitive. Considering we have some serious social problems (putting a game ahead of a child’s welfare), we are not mature enough as a race to even venture out past our own moon. We are still in our infancy as a race. Sure, we’ve made some incredible technological advances in the past three hundred years, but our attitude towards other people hasn’t advanced as much. How are we to accept beings from another world, when we don’t even accept all of humanity?
We falsely believe Humans are at the top of the intelligence food chain and to think that there could be something smarter out there is a frightening thought. If they’re smarter and hiding—they’re up to something. Maybe they’re going to take over the planet and enslave all of mankind. Maybe they’re going to kill us all and take our resources. Maybe they’re going to [fill in the blank]. Maybe they’re waiting for us to get our shit together so we can join the rest of the universal society, and not be that idiot pig playing in a mud puddle and rolling around in our own crap.
Sorry, didn’t mean to turn this into a rant.
So what do you think? Are we alone or not?
