I Believe

Written by The Voice

While I was sitting here at my computer, I thought to myself why is it I am interested in UFOS? The reason is simple. When you see a UFO for yourself you undergo a change. I consider myself to be intelligent. I understand what is possible and what is not. I have a firm grasp of technology and have a better than average understanding of space and astronomy. I KNOW what is possible and what isn't within current technological boundaries.

Many people out there are just like me. A day may come when you see that unexplainable object inrepparttar sky, onrepparttar 143636 ground or even inrepparttar 143637 oceans and you will have no alternative as a logical and coherent person to questionrepparttar 143638 boundaries of what is possible. Logic dictates that ifrepparttar 143639 objects exist, they must be controlled. The question is by "who"? Isrepparttar 143640 governmentrepparttar 143641 cuprit? I would say "YES", but only torepparttar 143642 extent that they use what they learn from alien's to advance human technology. They use this technology to bring us to parity with external alien forces, and for what purpose that remains unanswered.

Does this mean that I believe in extraterrestrials? I cannot as a intelligent person deny this possibility. To think that we arerepparttar 143643 only intelligent life inrepparttar 143644 universe flies inrepparttar 143645 face of current knowledge.

Every day we learn of new planets surrounding other stars and we already know thatrepparttar 143646 Universe contains over a 100 billion galaxies. With over a 100 billion galaxies and an infinite number of stars and planets in each galaxy, it is highly improbable or impossible to believe that we arerepparttar 143647 only ones inrepparttar 143648 Universe. Life and in it's diverse array on Earth should be an indication that whenever possible, life will get a foothold and from there it becomes very hard to snuff it out.

Hominid Inter-breeding

'Kenyanthropus platyops': - Perhapsrepparttar 6,000,000 year old men found by a maverick who went behindrepparttar 143520 authorities back atrepparttar 143521 Olduvai Gorge will be proven to actually not be outsiderepparttar 143522 australopithecine lineage. Butrepparttar 143523 Leakey family has found a 3.5 million year old human that definitely is, and it was announced after I had writtenrepparttar 143524 things related hereto earlier in this effort. I love how these synchronicities occur and how much there is for us to know about ourselves. "The ‘Gang' Hits Again Those famed Leakey fossil hunters add a new limb to our family tree - by Simon Robinson, Nairobi.

Like other members ofrepparttar 143525 famous 'hominid gang',repparttar 143526 sharp-eyed fossil hunters employed by paleontology's Leakey family, Justus Erus spends three months a year scouringrepparttar 143527 dry, bone-rich riverbeds around Lake Turkana, in northern Kenya. It is a scrubby, desolate landscape, whererepparttar 143528 people are desparately poor and gun-toting young men are a menacing presence. But it is hallowed ground to scientists because ofrepparttar 143529 clues it offers to early human history. Still, even after five years, Erus, a 30-year-old Turkana tribesman, had scored nary a hit-just bits of animal bones and teeth.

Then one scorching morning duringrepparttar 143530 final week ofrepparttar 143531 gang's explorations in August 1999, at a site called Lomekwi, Erus noticed a white object, just a cm or two across, sticking out of a patch of brown mudstone. 'I thought maybe it was (the bones of) a monkey,' he says. Beckoningrepparttar 143532 expedition's co-leader, Meave Leakey, wife and daughter-in-law, respectively, of Richard and Louis Leakey and renowned in her own right, he asked her opinion. By nightfall they realized that they had uncoveredrepparttar 143533 partial remains of a humanlike skull.

The fossil turned out to be a totally new prehuman species and last week reignited one of paleontology's greatest debates: Did we evolve in direct steps from a common apelike ancestor between 6 million and 4 million years ago? Or didrepparttar 143534 human family tree sprout branches, some of which petered out? {No integration of Mungo Man,repparttar 143535 6,000,000 year old find,repparttar 143536 Black Skull or many other possibilities!}

Inrepparttar 143537 past 20 yearsrepparttar 143538 Leakeys and others have dug up overwhelming evidence showing that between 2.5 million and 1 million years ago,repparttar 143539 then lush woodlands and savannas of eastern Africa-where our family tree first took root-wererepparttar 143540 habitat of rival species, most of which were evolutionary dead ends. But what about before that? Paleontologists have generally agreed that there was just one hominid line, beginning with a small, upright-walking species known as 'Australopithecus afarensis', most famously represented by 'Lucy'., a remarkably complete (about 40%) skeleton found in Ethiopia in 1974.

Now {Ha!} that view is being challenged. The new skull, described by Leakey and six colleagues, including her and Richard's daughter Louise, 29, in 'Nature' last week, pushesrepparttar 143541 presence of co-existing species back another million years, to between 3.5 million and 3.2 million years ago. That's right in Lucy's time. Yet it is so different from Lucy that they assign their fossil, which they call 'Kenyanthropus platyops', or 'flat- faced man of Kenya', to a new genus, or grouping of species. 'This means we will have to rethinkrepparttar 143542 early past of hominid evolution,' says Meave Leakey, head of paleontology atrepparttar 143543 National Museum of Kenya. {Who didn't wantrepparttar 143544 Dalhousie professor digging uprepparttar 143545 6,000,000 year old bones onrepparttar 143546 Yale site, that he says aren't australopithecine, to upstage them.} 'It's clearrepparttar 143547 picture isn't as simple as we thought.' Even Lucy's discoverer Donald Johanson, director ofrepparttar 143548 Institute of Human Origins at Arizona State University, concurs. 'This is a reminder that there are probably a lot more species out there,' he says.
