Everybody has seen a painting or a sculpture of Jesus.
they can absolutely identify one when they see one.
Curiously, nobody actually knows what Jesus looked like.
How do you figure that one?
But he's had a lot of good P.R. over the past couple of thousand years.

I went back and looked again at the video clips.
When you take away the ambient new-age soundtracks, the fuzzy photos,
There isn't much there.
When you really analyze the statements, there are a lot of holes
filled in with what is known in advertizing as "phrases that sell".

Ben Rich "Admitted in his Deathbed Confession
that Extraterrestrial UFO visitors are real and U.S Military travel to stars"

It means that this is what he believes strongly.
there is no doubt that this is what he believes.
What he admitted was his beliefs, based on his interpretation of events.
its doesn't reveal any facts
Any more than a person says on their deathbed that they are going to Amitabha's Pure Land
offers any proof to someone who does not follow Pureland Buddhism.

People should believe whatever they want,
and respect each others opinions.
But it is a mistake to confuse beliefs with facts.

Various Buddhist texts mention aliens and other dimensional beings co-habitating with us here on earth...
Okies, and they are...

"Ebe had a tendency to lie and for over a year would give only the desired answers to questions asked"

OR.....Maybe the English Language tutor he had on his home planet wasn't very good,
and he just didn't understand the questions.
:rolling:

Didn't William Bill also think the "UFO coverup" was part of an international Jewish conspiracy?"

Cooper was a conspiracy-obsessed individual.
Conspiracy theories, lacking verifiable evidence, draw more and more external 'causes' into an ever-growing web of paranoia.
When skeptics demand hard evidence for extraordinary claims,
conspiracy-obsessed people often see those skeptics as part of the conspiracy.
it's a never-ending loop.

There is much more credible evidence, photos, videos, and so forth, of crack-pots than there are of visitors from space.

But even if there are visitors from space,
okay, so what does that have to do with Buddhism?

Should we be building spacecraft instead of meditating?
