Re: did the government lie about area fifty one
Probably because it was a failed experimental aircraft testing or something. Of course the military base exists, it's just highly unlikely that Aliens flew billions of lightyears to Earth then either crashed or were shot down by our primative (In comparsion to technology that could travel such vast distances across space and whatnot) weapons right next to a secret military base.
I wouldn't doubt that there's a decently large possibilty of there being other forms of life within the universe. It's just highly unlikely that those life forms are chilling in tubes at area 51. I swear, you guys and your overactive-imaginations. ; )
