I've always been fascinated by the idea of aliens or civilizations other than ours, but a hardcore skeptic at the same time. Do I believe aliens built the pyramids? No. Do I believe our government is hiding supposed alien corpses that crashed in Roswell? No. Do I believe aliens have been visiting Earth? No.
That being said, do I think this guy Bob Lazar is lying? No.
Bob Lazar is a physicist who became known to the public in the 1980's when he went to the media and claimed that the US government has alien spacecrafts in its possession and he worked on reverse engineering one of the flying saucers. After he went public, it was almost as if somebody was trying to erase his existence - his birth certificate disappeared from record, his two Alma Maters of Cal Tech and MIT said they had no records of him attending the schools and the engineering plant where he worked in Los Alamos had no record of him either.
However, in the past 30 years, more evidence has come out that Lazar was indeed telling the truth, supporting not only his education and employment claims, but also his detailed description of working on alien spacecrafts.
Lazar says he was hired to work at a secret installation near Area 51 to try and figure out how these alien crafts operated. He says they are able to fly by no means of human science or technology - in fact, it's some kind of anti-gravitational system that defies the laws of physics.
