UFO Enthusiasts Break Down The Most Significant Pieces Of Evidence That Support Extraterrestrial Life
One of life's eternal questions and wonders revolves around proving that life exists outside of Earth and the human race. Have we truly shown that there are aliens out there or even among us? Some people swear they have the solid proof. Many people believe that we've all been witness to actual phenomenons that are irrefutable hard evidence. Of course it has long been believed the government is housing all the answers in a bunker in the desert. I'm not sure myself, but... I believe Will Smith knows.Redditor u/theEthan420 wanted to finally find the proof we have long been waiting for about those that live above us, they asked.... [Serious] UFO enthusiasts of Reddit, what is the most significant piece of evidence supporting extra terrestrial life?
David Fravor and the tick-tac video from the fighter jets was pretty convincing.
Came here to say the Tic Tac. It's some freaking crazy crap happening right there. What's even crazier is that the Pentagon said that it's legit.
The last 15 minutes of The Phenomenon documentary by James Fox. Dozens of children at a school in rural Zimbabwe had a close encounter with a UFO and an extraterrestrial being that (by their account) used some sort of strange telepathy to plant ideas in their head. I was extremely skeptical before this documentary, but this specific incident gave me the chills. Every single one of those kids had the exact same story just seconds after it happened and drew almost identical pictures of what they saw.
In the documentary there is video of the children soon after, and video of them discussing it now almost 30 years later. They all seem so genuine, their stories are exactly the same down to every last detail, and they all still seem shaken by what happened to them.
When in Utah
I'm sure lots of people here will say the same thing, but I've seen a UFO and not just some little lights spinning around in the distance that could've been a couple well piloted drones either. My dad, brother, and I were camping in Utah laying on our sleeping bags under the brilliant starry sky when we noticed an octagonal patch of sky that was an ever so slightly different shade of black that was slowly moving across the sky.
It was moving so slowly that it very well could've actually have been the stars that were moving behind it, but every time it covered some stars they would appear on it's underside. We just sat there watching it for a couple hours until it disappeared behind some trees.
This was before cellphone cameras and I was probably only 9-10 anyway. Strangely my dad told us that he had seen the same thing while he was camping in Big Bear in the 80s. A few years later the movie Chicken Little came out and I had to wonder whether the concept artist for their UFOs had seen the same thing.
3 Lights...comedy aliens GIF by People of Earth TBSGiphy
I saw something in Warner Robins, GA. I was stationed there as a radar guy and saw it late 2012 to early 2013 time frame. 3 blinking lights as you said spinning slowly and drifting down the street. I replied to the main guy with the whole story, but you are not alone my friend. I wasn't a believer in UFO's before, but now I am. If it is not aliens... I fall back on the argument that I remember from Gordon Cooper. As a professional pilot, seeing the things that the UFO aircraft he saw was able to do in the 50s... in his opinion, there was no way that was our technology.
A military jet crash was witnessed by a bunch of adults and children at a little-league baseball game. I watched the raw video feed from the TV camera crew that interviewed witnesses. They were all standing in line, waiting to be interviewed. One of the first people said something about seeing a flame (which was almost certainly the ejection seat firing), and the interviewer ceased on that and asked subsequent witnesses about it, building on the fire narrative. By the end, all the witnesses agreed that the airplane had exploded and gone down in a ball of flame. They all remembered that. It turned out that the jet crashed because it ran out of fuel. There was no explosion and no fire.
It was December 21st and my dad and I were looking up in the sky for the Great Conjunction. I often look at the night sky a lot, especially since where I live now doesn't have a lot of light pollution. I would say I have a pretty good understanding of where different stars and planets are in the night sky. I was looking Westward and I saw a object with a glow moving in a somewhat fast pace across the sky. I thought it was a Starlink satellite but I checked and it couldn't be a Starlink satellite because it was in the wrong location.
It's movements were too fast to be a satellite and it's location was too high in the sky to be a plane. It's behavior became more unusual when it moved laterally to the left, at an even faster pace. Not too sure what it was but multiple other people in my area saw it and my father now believes in aliens too. I never saw anything move like that before, definitely something strange.
I remember sitting with my friends in a car eating in-n-out when we saw one. It was a 3 orange lights in the form of a horizontal triangle over the building. They moved slowly, but not slowly enough to be planes. Besides they all moved like they were connected to each other. Then the three lights broke off into little smaller lights and then just... vanished.
We all saw it so I know I wasn't hallucinating. Years later I saw someone talking about the triangle lights here on Reddit. He even had a bunch of other people chiming in saying they'd seen it too. I looked up the pictures for it and sure enough it was exactly what I'd seen.
Space is Hardmac and me aliens GIFGiphy
It would be more weird if earth was the only planet in the universe that had intelligent life.
The problem is, unless we learn something radically new about physics, we will not be making it to another star for tens of thousands of years. Space travel is hard. If earth was slightly bigger, we would not be able to leave our atmosphere. Aliens would have the same problems because physics is the same everywhere.
Skeptics of alien life like to use the logic of "The odds of other life existing is one in one trillion." Even if that were the correct odds, that would still mean thousands of planets are out there with life. Maybe not intelligent life but just some type of life in general.
If even microbes exist on other planets then the odds of intelligent life elsewhere is increased substantially. Probability can be a complain but when you're working with an estimated 700 quintillion planets in the universe, low sounding probability becomes much more probable.

All the recently released documents from the government that confirm UFO sightings.
So I 100% believe that extra terrestrial life exists, but am skeptical as to whether or not they have visited Earth.
My main reason for believing they exist: it is statistically impossible (with the size and makeup of the universe) that our planet is the only one to develop life.
We know of multiple other planets that are in the "Habitable Zone" in other solar systems, but that's only for OUR habitat.
Life on other planets could have developed in ways we couldn't even imagine. I mean, even on our own planet has life in the deepest parts of the ocean, darkest caves, and even in volcanic vents. So yes, I am positive (despite lack of actual proof) that life, in some form or another, exists on other planets.
The Main Reasons
The ones that are most convincing to me are:
- Westall school sighting
- Zimbabwe school sighting
- Bob Lazar
- Commander David Fraver (Tic Tac). BadPallet
"THEY" know...Always Sunny Fx GIFGiphy
My hubbies grandmother believed in UFO's wholeheartedly for most of her life. When asked she would point to religious texts as aliens having visited us. As she got closer to the end she became really religious and stopped believing in aliens as it was against her religion.
She had been an agnostic most of her life.
Boo!scary movie halloween GIFGiphy
I don't 100% believe in UFO's but on Halloween of 2018 I looked up, and right as I looked up a shooting star appeared, but it stopped mid air for a sec doing that 4 pointed star shine thing, then rocketing back to who knows were, so that's a thing.
follow the #s...
Math, and the odds of the earth bearing the only lifeforms in an endless universe pretty much does it for me. But has anyone got to us yet? That I do not know. I also don't know what's on the other side of the edge of the universe but I can assure you there is.
As a former UFO enthusiast, I'd like to point out that everyone saying something like "life exists in the universe, therefore life must exist elsewhere" are correct, but the distance between extra terrestrial life existing (an almost certainty) and the presence of extra terrestrial visitors on Earth (a near impossibility) is vast.
In a world of camera ubiquity, if we were being visited by alien spacecraft, we'd have photos and video by now.
Statistical probability. We are one planet in one solar system in one galaxy in a universe that contains millions, even billions of galaxies. No one knows how big the universe is.
Faster Than Light
Two facts: the ingredients and conditions for life appear very common, and life started very quickly on earth once it was possible. So you already have to lean on very unlikely scenarios and bet against the evidence, slim as it may be, to conclude that life itself is rare.
Now as to life visiting us, Faster Than Light travel is either possible, or not. If not, life is unlikely to travel the universe or even the galaxy. But robotic probes still make a lot of sense, even with the science we can currently imagine. At least within a galaxy.
Into the Billions
Common sense. There's billions of stars in a galaxy, often hundreds of billions, and there's hundreds of billions of galaxies within the observable universe... and somehow the only intelligent life in existence is a self destructive species who fight over the shape of their planet and the rules set in place to prevent the worsening of a global pandemic? Nah, no way we're alone.
The Space Chief
Haim Eshed the Israeli ex military space chief of 30 years, going public about the Galactic Federation and their meetings with both Israel and America. How they have a base deep under surface of Mars. How they have an agreement with America that they're allowed to take humans for experimentation, but America and Israel have to keep quiet about them as they say were not ready.
But thing is he didn't go public because he's scared for his life, but because he thought the time was right. With all his experience as space chief for 30 years and all he's other work and awards he says he's basically beyond reproach, and no one has tried to discredit him or whitewash what his said.
Life is out there. Do you think they wonder about us? There seems to be just as many "facts" that can also be instantly debunked. So who really knows? It may very well be and stay the greatest mystery of life. And maybe it should. Keep looking up.

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.
I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.
Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!
People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,
"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"
"Their cast iron pans..."
"Lodge. Their cast iron pans are super durable and can last a lifetime."
Not just a lifetime. Your Lodge cast iron will outlive you, if (and even if you don’t) take care of it. Even if they get rusty they can be resurfaced. And damn is it satisfying to resurface a forgotten cast iron pan.
Asics, specifically the Gel-Nimbus series. I've suffered from joint pain and unbearable plantar fasciitis from a relatively young age... These shoes are life savers. Very pricey and I don't love the look of tennis shoes of any type but nevertheless I will praise these shoes to the end of days. Hopefully, I will always be able to afford them once a year.
Glad to hear you've found some much-needed relief!
"Warranty and service..."
"Victorinox. Excellent pocket knives, multi tools and their kitchen knives are probably the best ones you can get under 100 USD. Warranty and service is top notch."
Anyone who cooks, but can't afford or doesn't want to invest in a professional-grade chef's knife should get a Victorinox. They aren't nearly as good as a top tier professional chef's knife, but they are night and day compared with everything else in their price range.
"This one brand..."
"This one brand of granola bars called Sunbelt Bakery. Every other granola bar brand is so dry I can't eat them anymore."
Yes, these are so good! An excellent choice.
"Dickies. High quality pants. They're meant to be work pants so they're pretty durable and breathe well. Very comfortable."
"High quality" is right. Those pants last forever.
"It helps clean..."
"Dawn dishsoap. It helps clean dishes and it's great when one of my kids has an accident and I have to wash their clothes. Sometimes leaves a small stain but no smell. It has saved so many outfits."
Fantastic – it sounds like you should be their salesperson.
"They don't use..."
"New Balance. They don't use slave labor to make shoes."
They are comfortable and fit well.
I personally still don't like the aesthetics of many of their shoes, but still recommend them to people who want a good shoe.
"They are a retailer..."
"REI. Stand behind everything in their store. They are a retailer but you can beat something up they sell and they give you a full refund."
Many people use them for shoes, for camping gear... all kinds of stuff. They're very reliable.
"I wear my Timberland boots..."
"I wear my Timberland boots almost every day, I’ve had them for almost ten years, and they’re still just about as sturdy as they were the day I bought them."
These shoes tend to last forever. "Durable" is the perfect word.
"One large bottle..."
"Dr. Bronner's Castile soap. One large bottle lasts me about a year and I use it for everything. No toxic BS in them like pretty much every other soap and they smell fantastic."
"Also when I say everything I really mean it. All purpose cleaner, dish soap, body wash, shampoo, carpet extractor wash, dog shampoo, it’s called 18 in 1 for a reason."
If you're interested in the story behind the company, the documentary Dr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox might be right up your alley.
See? Not all brands are terrible. After reading about some of these, it might be time to change of your buying habits.
Have some suggestions of your own? Tell us more in the comments below!
You know what would be great?
If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.
Let's just toss them out, shall we?
People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,
"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"
"Leaving the office..."
"Leaving the office whenever you've finished your tasks for the day."
This is why I'm so glad remote work is the new office.
"And yet, I get it!"
"Taking off sick from work, WITHOUT giving an invasive reason. I supervise a small team and so I see all the OOO emails, and for gods sake I want people to PLEASE not feel the need to explain in detail what kind of diarrhea is afflicting them, or how bad their period cramps are, or how much bad sushi they ate the night before. Just say “I’m under the weather, I won’t be online today.”"
"And yet, I get it! I do it too! I feel guilty or like I’ll be looked at with suspicion if my reason for taking off isn’t sufficiently debilitating enough!"
"But… we need to stop this. As a manager I don’t care, I don’t THINK the people above me who are also on these emails care… let’s just all agree to take sick days without any details from now on!"
I do not miss my retail days where I had to organise someone to cover me and beg on bended knee.
"Cashiers or workers who don’t need to be standing all day not having a stool or chair."
Another thing I do not miss from my retail days. Having to stand for hours and hours only to come home with my feet killing me was not fun.
"Prices on apartments..."
"Prices on apartments and their respectable reasons for such price directly on their websites or advertising without the need for a tour or any secrecy."
I always assume if I have to ask the price I probably can’t afford it.
"Being quiet/not wanting to engage in conversation all the time."
In Finland, if somebody tries to talk to you, they are probably a tourist.
"Choosing not to..."
"Choosing not to have toxic family members in your life."
It feels very liberating once you accept that you don't have to put up with it.
"Employees calling customers out in public for being a**holes."
Absolutely. Many customers get away with treating employees horribly because they know they can do it without any pushback... most of the time.
"The fact that I sometimes..."
"The fact that I sometimes need to take my insulin in public. No, Karen, I am not doing drugs, I need to live."
You’re getting that sweet sweet insulin high… the high of being not-dead.
"Afternoon naps. I’m on team nap. Give me 25 minutes to charge up and I’ll give you back 3 hours of high quality work. Everyone wins. Plus I go home with extra energy instead of dead tired."
Short naps don't work for me. I can't do a 25 min recharge. When I take a nap it needs to be like a solid 2 hours
"Salary transparency. For some reason, in the US, there’s a taboo or stigma around discussing one’s salary. This should be done openly and freely, with zero embarrassment or judgment. The only winners from avoiding these conversations are the corporations that are able to pay people differently for the same roles. Speak up!"
The "for some reason" you're referring to is simply propaganda on behalf of corporations.
It's evident that something's got to change around here, and we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!
Have some observations of your own? Feel free to tell us more in the comments below!
As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.
For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.
Curious to hear from people whose patience ran thin and made a strong decision, Reddit Prestigious-Order-62 asked:
"What made you say 'f'k this sh*t im out?'"
The unwarranted reprimanding was something that was never mentioned in the initial job description.
"In the late 90’s."
"One time I got pulled into the Security office at a Department store I worked at. They accused me of constantly using the sales day coupons for people that didn’t present one (we always kept an extra copy at each register). I had watched my own department boss do it many times so I assumed it was okay. We didn’t even collect the coupons to be counted for the cash office, we just chucked them after use."
"They claimed I lost the store hundreds of dollars and had been watching me 'for months' do this awful, unforgivable crime for people spending 90 bucks on already bloated price designer jeans. I’m sure the occasional 10% discount was just devastating. 🙄""I got this huge lecture of how I was LITERALLY stealing from the store and they COULD call the police but would give me a chance to work off the damage. I couldn’t believe how criminal I was made to feel over it. The best part when they called my boss in who pretended to have never done it before to save her own a**."
"I asked if they were firing me. They said 'Yes and No. You will be let go, but you can choose to work off the damages so we don’t take you to court.' I told them I will just quit and asked for my last check. They said they will deduct what I owe from my last check. And I said 'Well then you need to show me all the footage and prove that I was stealing.' They wouldn’t produce footage, finally called the cops, and when the cops arrived, they were just as confused and called it an internal problem and advised them that this was overblown. I think they felt sorry for me. So finally upper management came in and just said 'just issue the last check, I will sign it here.' So much drama over so stupid a thing."
"It was sad because that actual day my Mom and daughter had come to the mall to meet me for lunch and I had to explain I just was forced to quit that job and was never allowed in that store again like I was some awful jerk."
"It was nice a few short years later, the entire chain bankrupted."
"A coworker waited until we were in front of a large group of people to start 'disciplining' me for something 'wrong' I did (I took my lunch 15 mins late to help another coworker) when she wasn’t even my supervisor. Applied for a job transfer the next day and couldn’t be happier where I am now."
"I had a piece of sh*t of a boss. He'd praise you in private but berate you in public. In front of coworkers and customers. Always about stuff that didn't matter."
"He'd also happily break company policy to side with customers after you spent an hour telling a customer you can't give them stuff for free, for example. Any time he was around, everything was miserable."
"My only regret is that I wasn't there to see him marched out by corporate when he got fired, because I had gone on to a better job by then."
Human Punching Bag
"I used to work in a Kitchen at a pub, it was grim work, but I had freinds there and had worked there for 3 years, So it wasn't too bad."
"One Christmas season we were being absolutely pumped, full out functions and busy services. My boss at the time was very stressed and fair enough, We were busy, We were all working overtime and full out. He used any excuse to completely blow up and absolutely scream at me for little to no reason, essentially him yelling at me was his stress relief. But fine, whatever, kitchens are rough places, no appolagies or anything, move on."
"I then go away for 3 weeks over the Christmas holidays and spend the time road tripping around the country having an amazing time."
"First shift back, not pleased being back, he makes a snarky comment."
"F'k this, Im out."
Even though these employees weren't chewed out in front of co-workers, the low salary without room for negotiation made them not wanting to stick around for much longer.
You Only Get One Job
"They cut my hours so I had to get a second job. 3 days before I was supposed to start said second job, my manager at the main job told me that I couldn't get this second job because I had main job first and I needed to make it my priority. That's when I said f'k you and left. I didn't even give a notice, I literally just sent an email saying I wouldn't be coming in the next day, grabbed my sh*t and went home."
"I used to work Retail and after 7 years at the company, I found out I was only making 50 cents more an hour than someone who just started yesterday. I understood if they couldn't pay me more and asked for a good schedule. 7-3 or 8-4 every day and the same two days off every week. I didn't even ask for weekends off."
"I was told that they couldn't give me a good schedule so I quit."
Situations weren't much different outside the work place. Social dilemmas prompted these Redditors to say, "nope."
"Went to a pub because a friend kept asking. When I got there, he was with a group of people I didn't know, so I introduced myself and got the next round. As I come back with the tray, I hear them saying something along the lines of 'why is that b*tch still here? I thought she was just supposed to drop off a bicycle?' 'Ya, we don't want her to come to <this other town with more pubs> and now she is drinking with us?' 'She's so dumb' *proceeds to imitate and ridicule me as I was actively listening and nodding when I was having a conversation with my friend."
"Gave the beer to random people and walked right out after saying good evening to my friend and briefly explaining I did not appreciate being tricked into being a bicycle taxi for people who hate me directly after meeting me."
A Shocking Incident
"I was on my boat fishing for bass. I casted out my line and watched the lure hit the water but the line just floated in the air. Lightning and thunder crashed and the line fell to the water. F'k this sh*t, I'm out."
"She lined my bed with broken glass put the blankets over it and I dove on in lol."
"Edit: She was violent/crazy and on drugs, was like the 20th attack I took and that made me really think lol."– MyLifeForAuir1
Ally For The Ex
"I found nudes of his ex (from ten years ago) that I’d previously asked him twice to get rid of tucked in a pair of MY socks. Our couples counselor asked why he’d kept them and he said, 'You know. In case I ever needed to blackmail her.' He said it like it was a perfectly normal and reasonable thing to plan to do. The therapist and I locked eyes and I noped the f'k out of there and moved out."
Most of these Redditors realized leaving their situation was better than dealing with the consequences of sticking around.
The latter is never a good option. Why remain in a scenario you know is already going to consume your soul?
The lesson for today is–Don't be miserable. Your sanity is worth saving.Besides, you would never know that something better awaits if you just don't get the F out.
As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.
Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.
One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.
And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).
Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:
"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
Fresh out of the oven, or the next day!
