There was an antelope found in the jungles of vietnam recently that was never cataloged. Additionally fisherman netted a Caelocanthe(sp?) fish of the coast of Madagascar that was thought to be extinct millions of years ago.
The Yeti and Bigfoot are plausable
Aliens I have a harder time with. Why travel light years just to hide from people, pick up and play doctor with others, and then run away? I don't get it?
If they are sophisticated enough to figure out light travel they should be sophistcated to know we are ignarant savages next to them....or maybe they don't exist at all
I don't believe in the alien abduction stories, but I heard somewhere that there is a one in nine million chance that a planet created will be suitable for life(as we define it). There are over nine million planets, so that should mean there is life elsewhere. The big question to me is how intelligent is this life? Is it just a simple bacteria, or is it actually intelligent life?
AND, if we ever discovered another alien species on another planet, we wouldn't rush in and reveal ourselves, so why should they? We would, most likely, observe them and determine their intelligence and risk to our species.
On a side note, the reason the movie "Signs" freaked me out was b/c of the way it was presented. IF, and I know that's a big if, we were ever invaded, the way the whole movie portrays it is so realistic. The media coverage of the whole thing hit a little too close to home. The scene with the alien walking by the alleyway at a birthday party, which was caught on home video, literally made me freeze in terror.
