What do you folks make of this stuff?

I dunno what to make of this, apparently some people found a alien in the Chile desert a few years ago and have been examining it since then and will be releasing the footage of essentially their examinations via a documentary called "Sirius" thats releasing to a limited theatrical run on april 22nd,

here's a bit from the article

The film, called "Sirius," will also depict how readily available forms of alternative energy technology are what extraterrestrials may be using to travel here from the cosmically improbable distances between their home world and ours.

If this is all true, and that's a very big IF, it will certainly answer the ages-old question of whether or not humans are alone in the universe.

The force behind "Sirius" is Steven Greer, a former emergency medical physician. He's actively pursued avenues to get the U.S. government to reveal information about alien reality -- information that the powers-that-be have always maintained doesn't exist.

"Sirius" includes graphic footage of the supposedly humanoid entity of "unknown classification" by DNA sequencing.

i dunno what to make of this stuff, on one hand i want to believe, but i find it hard to believe,

(especially when there is an article like this about http://www.openminds.tv/background-of-ufo-documentary-humanoid-alien-revealed-964/)

curious to hear what you folks make of this stuff

Why would a random alien happen to be bipedal, have a spine, have two eyes located in a similar position to a humans, have a brain located in a similar location to a humans, and bear striking resemblance to the Grey Aliens of science fiction?

I don't know, to promote the movie? It's certainly got people talking about it. There's 3,887 comments on that article.

Aliens are depicted that way because that's what people have always described as what they have seen.

Yep, this smells like the old publicity stunt trick. A lot of movies have done this, and it's stupid because people actually believe it. If this wasn't tied to a film it would be a bit more believable.

The best part about that Huffington Post article? The author literally linked the original source that he plagiarized his article from. This whole thing just reeks of bullshit at every inch, but then again who enjoyed doing citations in high school anyways?

Well I can probably be a dick about the movie. The thing is clearly full of conspiracy theorist nutjobs talking about pseudo-science who have the audacity to criticise real scientists all the while peddling their manufactured "evidence" in order to attract others to their distorted belief system.

As soon as they started going on about free-energy devices, I checked out. Absolutely nobody has been able to provide scientific evidence that it's possible to generate power in that manner, but it's exactly the sort of thing that crazy conspiracy theorists love to sketch designs and build models of in their garages.

Makes sense that a scientific discovery with potential to alter the human paradigm would be released in two weeks as part of a feature film.

What they don't seem to realise is that free energy devices and perpetual motion machines are, by definition, physically impossible as they violate the laws of thermodynamics. The only perpetual motion machine that could be theoretically possible is one that reduces energy losses to nearly zero thus any energy input would allow it to move for an incredibly long amount of time without losing much energy. However, those devices would only be able to store energy, not generate it.

Convergent evolution can explain why a genuine alien could look similar to us. Assuming an alien planet is similar to earth, it is likely that an alien would evolve in a similar way to humans as they would have to solve similar problems to humans. There are species on earth that are completely unrelated that are extremely similar due to having similar conditions.

Of course, this "alien" is complete bullshit in any case.

Didnt the same thing happen with a documentary about bigfoot? They said they had real evidence (i think they said a body) and that they would reveal it in the movie, and i dont think that turned out so dont hold your breath for this one, no matter how much you want to believe
