The White House: There are no aliens

Phil Larson of the White House office of science and technology policy, answered a question of a petition asking if the US Goverment is hiding any information about alien life.
And he answered:
"The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race, ... In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."

I must say that I have mixed feelings about this. Because I am happy that they are taking up this question, and actually give an answer, and this might be it - there are no secrets, they didn't collect anything from Roswell and such. And we are alone in the universe as far as we know.
But still I am not giving up hope and belief that there might be more out there than we know. And you also have to consider that it wouldn't be a good time for the US government to come out with such information right now, with all the problems they have and the already big insecurity worldwide. Saying "Hey btw guys, aliens exist!" wouldn't be a great idea, and probably not for a long time to come. But this is just my thoughts, and my small hope that there actually are more out there.

Lifeforms without oxygen

I just read on Aftonbladet that they have found fossils that indicate that there were bacterias on earth when there was very little/no oxygen. This means that life possible can start on other planets with little/no oxygen.
You can read the article in Swedish here: http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article13507784.ab
Here is an article in English: http://blogs.voanews.com/science-world/2011/08/22/earths-oldest-fossils-could-provide-clues-to-life-on-other-planets/

I would also want to bring up a discovery scientist made earlier this year. They found bacteria that were made of arsenic, which is deadly to all other lifeforms here on earth, who is made by fosfor.
This also expand the chances of life beyond this planets, and frankly makes me very happy. ^^

We are very small

I think we all have been thinking of how small we really are. But as you all know it's very hard to put into perspective.
This though is a gif from a video on youtube, where as you can see earth is compared to the other planets in our solar system, but also to other suns. And maaan, we are so tiny!
And then we also have to remember that these are just SUNS. And they are just tiny tiny dots in a galaxy! And there are zillions of galaxies out there!

Gowsh, poor ants.

Two Moons

Did you know that scientists have a accepted theory about that Earth had two moons before? The theory is that the two moons did collide with each other.

How did this collision between the two moons occur? Scientists believe the smaller sister moon, made of the same rocky debris as the larger moon became stuck in the gravity between Earth and the bigger moon billions of years ago, drawing the smaller lunar object into an impact with the moon.
You can read more here: http://www.voanews.com/english/news/science-technology/Scientists-Think-Earth-Once-Had-Two-Moons---126841858.html

I find it awesome that we had two moons! Wouldn't it be awesome if we still had it? Though I wounder how different our life here on earth would be, especially our culture and beliefs. Think about how much there is about the moon. And how it would be with TWO. Just saying - poor werewolves!

22 years of UFO history in Wales

Fittingly enough did Aftonbladet yesterday post about Wales released 22 years of UFO sighting reports.
Here is the link: http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article13451332.ab
There you can see 14 pictures taken or drawn by those who have seen unidenified flying objects, or things connected with them. You can also download the files and read about this in english here: http://ufos.nationalarchives.gov.uk

This is what I think partly a good source, because these things should not be photoshoped or fake, because it comes directly from the government and they are not confirmed to be anything, they are just a mystery. But at the same time they are kind of vague from time to time. So I recommend you to take a look!

Fake Facts

While speaking of UFO and such in art, I have to tell you what I came over while doing a scientific report in school about, not so surprising, facts that points to aliens visiting earth.
Erich von Däniken had a picture in his book Chariots of the Gods, which was my main source, and this picture is the one you see here. It said that this picture was of a cave painting in Uzbekistan, thousands of years old. When seeing this, I went so happy! Because since he had traveled around the world, taking this pictures himself - then this cave painting must be real! And that would mean that there really have been travelings to earth, because cave men was not capable of doing this on their own!
But then I looked into it more, trying to find more information. And it turned out that this picture had been circulating the net. It was based on a old newspaper from.. Russia I think, and someone had redrawn it on a cave wall.
It made sense, so I wasn't sad over it being fake, what I was sad about was the fact that von Däniken had published it in his book. How could he do that? He is one of the biggest supporters and sources of alien visitors, and then he do this and all my trust is lost in him. Bad bad von Däniken.

So yes, you always have to be careful with what you can believe in and what not - especially in this area, since there is a lot of fakes everywhere.

UFOs in Art

I would like to start off with something that I find to one of the most fascinating things that points to the existence of aliens - unidentified flying objects in art from different times and different places. Because you can't argue with that, saying it's photoshoped or fake. It's there.

You can see one of these here in the blog, which is called "The Baptism of Christ" and is painted in 1710 by Aert De Gelder.
You can see more art featuring UFO's here: http://www.in5d.com/ufos-in-art-history.html
I really like that page (there's a lot out there!)and I really recommend you to read though and look at the paintings!

I feel like I should explain myself a bit too. Because it might seem like I am a alien obsessed believer that thinks they have always been here and are watching us and blabla. But I'm not. I'm just trying to watch all angles, not denying hypotheses.
And when I look at these paintings I feel like this is a great source. Because I don't think people came up with this, just because, like "Oh, I will draw this weird symbol in the sky, just because it looks cool!" No, I think people drew what they saw and didn't understand. Some of these object looks more like clouds or religious symbols for example, but that might be because that was the only way they could comprehend it.
Think about it.
