Is this thread serious?
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

I was a bit iffy on alien abduction...but I figure that the fact that they're unproved phenomena is evidnece enough for their existence AND for a government cover-up.

I personally see this endeavor as both a mockery of this forum and a waste of bandwith.  >:(
