Favorite Quotes from Life in the Universe Essays:

— Secrets —

Every term, each student in my Astronomy 115 course (Life in the Universe) was assigned to write an essay giving his or her opinion on the following question:

"Do extraterrestrial technical civilizations currently exist in our Galaxy?"

This group of quotes involves secrets. (The typos and misspellings are real, but they are not mine.) The material is presented here without comment; you will have to make up your own.

    Essay Quotes: Secrets

  1. Something significant must have happened to spark the interest in searching for aliens, some of the researchers must know something the average citizen does not.

  2. Does the Government know something we don't has alien ships landed here and abducted humans for reasearch? Who knows, I do know that there are limitless possibilities out there, and if we keep striving for a way to answer our curiosity someday all the money and effort we put into thes research I believe it will all pay of in one way or another.

  3. I believe that if the government is using the money and hiring the scientists, etc. for an idea that we are not really sure exists, they must have some hint that something is out there.

  4. I would have to say that there have been aliens on our planet until the government gives us all of their information and proves us wrong.

  5. Can we make a connection between UFOs and extraterrestrials? Or should we make those two hypotheses separate? I believe these should be kept separate based on what information is kept from us.

  6. Because of how much information is kept from the public in every aspect, I can only assume that there are answers out there.

  7. Unless, the government is hiding major evidence I don't think we would ever find out if a civilization has been found on another planet because the government is hiding it.
