Almost every incedent of a person/people seeing UFOs have been proven hoaxes.

People lie, people want publicity. Get over it.

ok
everyone except hunter is 100% right
this was a trick question


UFOs are real because
there are flying objects that are unidentified

suppose mister irisponsable pilot is flying with his radio and radar beacon off
he is flying and nobody knows what he is
thus he is an Unidentified Flying Object


this question has nothing to do with aliens of science or you opinions

this was a test in common sense and hunter lost
get over it

I was holding off on replying because I thought that might be what you were getting at...

Do objects which are unidentified and fly exist? Well, yes -- at least, they're unidentified to some observers. They might be identified to others, though, so it really depends on how strict your definition of "unidentified" is.

Do alien spacecraft exist? I doubt it.

The drake equation says there should be other people around in the milky way talking to us if not visiting us in ufo's.

http://www.station1.net/DouglasJones/drake.htm#fc

So where are they?

Well it could be because the death star* keeps wiping them out and we might be next!

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/transcripts/2901_gamma.html

Or maybe, like us, everyone gets wiped out by asteroid impacts sooner or later.

*death stars are a natural phenomenon and not fully operational battle stations, they can gamma irradiate an entire galaxy and it happens quite often in the universe apparently.

Or, possibly, it could be that Drake was wrong.

Icarus, you and I both well know that when you started this thread, you said "UFOs" with the specific implification of the Cultural icon of Alien Spacecraft.

I'm more inclinced to agree with Lothar. Consider that the Drake equation is mostly supposition based on one known species (us). It's not like the Galatic Alliance did a poll of the Galaxy and have used that as the starting point or something.

First off, I'm not ****** or anything, so you can stop saying "Get over it". Second off, I think everything you said right there is a rebuttal in its own right.

i think there are such things as aliens because the universe is so big and there are so many galaxies that it is almost impossible that they dont exist
