Do you believe in Starseeds? The Starseeds are a concept of the New Age.

Another "Star-" something quasi-religious cargo cult? Puh-LEEEEEEZE shoot me! Just shoot me now!

Show me a "Starseed" and I'll believe. Otherwise, put it back in the Science-Fiction & Fantasy section where it belongs.

I believe in the star anise seeds. I have some in my kitchen cupboard to prove their existence (not to mention their excellent compatibility with garam masala)

I don't think I am a starseed, I am from Earth....I hope. But I have been in contact with aliens from another galaxy. I've seen and heard their ships and how they communicate with me is that they send balls of light and make them streak all over the place including in your car and in the sky. They have tried to "get" me a few times and I sometimes feel in total control from the aliens and also the government. I lose control over my body and my arms and legs move by itself. It is a weird feeling.

Proof Proof, hehe, ya it's nothing but new age mumbo jumbo, and something plagiarized from sci-fi author Larry Niven's stories.

I don't believe it. I don't think highly of New Age though to begin with. The whole new trend is not fitting the older ideas of when people attempted to combine philosophy, spiritual believes and scientific approaches.

I do not think that intelligent life from another planet is likely to contact us humans, this is becuase I do not think alien life forms with intelligence are common in the universe. It is unlikely that if aliens exist that they would be able to travel to and from the earth becuase the distances in space are so large, it is a nice idea for films about alien life forms visiting the earth but in real life I think it is less likely.

Anyway why in most films do aliens seem to speak english so well ?

If the aliens are smart they might a point of avoiding earth.

IF aliens exist, and IF they could tune in our television broadcasts, why would they come here??
We're so bloody violent, IF they were intelligent, they'd make a wide detour around us ! !! !!

I once read a story about a group of aliens who had been watching earth TV, they thought that the earth people were super violent. They visited earth and had quite a few shocks, they were expecting the humans to be constantly killing each other and doing mindless violence.

A piece of Science-Fiction, no doubt.
