Do You Believe in UFOs?

About one third of the population is said to believe in UFOs. A lecture at the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas on Sept. 22 promises to reveal some kind of "UFO-related secrets."

It is reported that about one third of the population believes in Unidentified Flying Objects, or UFOs. It isn't hard to believe when you take into account the number of sightings recorded on UFO stalker, a website that tracks UFO sightings throughout the country. A recent sighting was reported in Winder just this past Saturday. , a witness reported seeing a “strange flash in the sky” while driving from Barrow County to Gwinnett. UFOs have been reported all over the local area this year, from Athens, Buford, Grayson and Dacula to Cumming.

The site receives reports from all over the world, but these sightings are often dismissed as not really credible. UFO believers, however, are hoping an upcoming special will bring a greater sense of credibility to the issue. The Huffington Post recently reported on a special lecture at the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas to take place on Sept. 22. According to the Huffington Post, four of the participants are former military officials. The special promises to include some UFO-related secrets that will soon be revealed at the museum.

So are you one of the about 30 percent of the population who believes in UFOs? And do you believe you have actually seen a UFO?

I'd like to stray off course here... other life does exist, i do not call them aliens, more along the lines of very superior intellectual beings. Plenty of proof of them, all over the world, and in every single culture. Now about the UFO's, they're misinterpreted and 90-95% are nothing more than terrestrial objects (planes, or what have you). That being said, the 5-10% that are unexplained are the truly legitimate ones. Now I do not want to debate or say anything more about why I know about other beings, but just be open-minded people.... What are the chances that we are the only most insignificant life forms anywhere in the universe/galaxy, let alone our own, among many hundreds (or so). Please do not ask me any questions about this comment above. Just as I have said keep your mind open, and do research if you like.

Charles, I wouldn't worry about any questions if I were you. You don't seem very sure what you believe. Why would anyone else? In May of this year you commented: "I'm a firm non-believer in UFO's since more times than not they're either hoaxed or misinterpreted". http://oconee.patch.com/articles/was-there-a-ufo-in-oconee-county-last-week Now you say: "Plenty of proof of them, all over the world"

I saw one in 2007. I was walking towards my friends house in the middle of the afternoon. As I was walking I looked up to see a circle shaped object spinning around slowly. It was there for about 20 seconds but disappeared when a cloud passed through

What was it you saw steven? An unidentified flying object? I saw a bird this morning but I couldn't identify it.

That's interesting Steven. Did you see this report on saucer-like aircraft the government planned in the 50s? Wonder if they're still around. http://www.foxnews.com/science/2012/10/08/us-air-force-declassifies-plans-for-flying-saucer/
