UFOs exist - like it or not very few people now deny their existence.
For many years, especially the last fifty, thousands of people from all walks of life, culture and occupation have reported UFO sightings and experiences. UFOs have been picked up by radar, recorded on film and video and have been witnessed by reliable, professional people. In more recent years even astronauts and pilots have reported sightings and declared their knowledge of the existence of UFOs. However, most UFO sightings are experienced by "ordinary persons" - people who become unwitting witnesses to an event that could well change their outlook on life. Modern society has been almost "programmed" to regard such witnesses with derision but remember - if the same person witnessed a crime, his or her testimony would be acceptable in a court of law. In fact, according to most recent opinion polls, not only do the vast majority of people regard UFOs as a "fact", they also believe that they are of extra-terrestrial origin. There is, also, no doubt that various governments have lied for years about their covert interest in and knowledge about UFOs - often adding confusion to an already complex subject by the spreading of "mis-information".


Just what are UFOs, where do they come from and WHY? are they here?

We hope The WHY? FILES make a genuine contribution to answering these questions - and, at the risk of repeating ourselves, please do not forget that your opinions are important to us. 

PLEASE let us know what you think of this site by visiting the Guest Book.

"We've so poorly explored even the local neighbourhood of our solar system that there could well be probes, artifacts, even large, slow ships within our solar system.. they may be here". Jill Tartar Director of SETI (July 2002)
