Do YOU believe?

Are we alone in the universe...or not?

Ever since I was a wee lad, the thought that we're not alone in the universe has both thrilled and terrified me. I grew up watching Star Trek with my parents, so the thought of discovering new life and civilizations sounded pretty awesome. On the other hand, movies like Independance Day and Mars Attacks pretty much seared the idea that "aliens are BAD" into my brain...and that they may be defeated by music, but that's another story. This brings me to my question of the night...have YOU ever had a close encounter?

I can remember seeing some lights in the sky last summer. I initially thought that it was just a sattelite I was seeing soar through the sky. That is, until I saw the light literally stop, and change direction. It went in that direction for a little ways before it stopped, reversed direction, and quickly accelerate until it was out of site...most definitely not the way any Earthly aircraft moves. Also, lets not forget the Falcon Lake incident of 1967, where Stan Michalak claimed to police that the strange grid pattern burned into his shirt and skin was due to the emissions of a flying saucer as it took off from his position. 

So what do you think? Are we alone in the vast emptyness of space? Have you had a close encounter with some otherworldly objects? The truth, as they say, it out there...
