Hi Sherry, well this is a heavy subject and I don't know if I can contribute much to it as there always is far too many questions than answers, and it seems with a lot of things the more you find out the more questions arise.
I am getting older too as we all are and I have noticed that as that happens we all have our thoughts and they do change with the passage of time, regarding the afterlife... well I don't dwell on that too much, and my reasoning for that is that one day I will find out for myself one way or the other... yeah and the wheels on the bus go round and round.... :)
UFO's and ET on the other hand is where my interest lies as you have probably gathered.Although I talk about the lies, the coverups and the information suppression which has taken place over the last 60 odd years, which I find totally insulting to say the least. I would really like to know the truth before I toddle off into the unknown.
Anyway what I am trying to say in a bad way is that UFO's are not a new phenomena in fact they have been recorded from way back in history.http://www.bibleufo.com/ufos.htm
The more I see in this world the more frustrated and saddened I become, if mankind and the human race is the best the universe has to offer then god help us all!
The reason I say that is the world is a beautiful place but just look at how we treat this world and how we treat each other.... oops sorry I am on a rant, apologies. :)
