font size    

The obsession with UFOs (unidentified flying objects) has created the largest community of enthusiasts in the world, said an organizer of the 2005 World UFO conference.

A crowd of UFO enthusiasts gathered in Dalian, a port city in northeast China's Liaoning Province on Thursday to open the 2005 World UFO Conference. It is the first time the event has been held in China, said Friday's China Daily.

The newspaper quoted Sun Shili, chairman of the conference as saying that the number of UFO enthusiasts now exceeds half of the world's total number of intellectuals.

"Ufology is blossoming in China, and the participants to this conference are mostly professionals," said Stanton Friedman, a US nuclear physicist to the conference.

A UFO society in Dalian City has found that 90 percent of its 400 members have college degrees.

During the conference, UFO enthusiasts exchanged their sightings and exciting tales of UFOs. Most of them believed that extraterrestrials do exist and that they are more intelligent than us human beings.
