Should the Stargate Program be made public? Yes. When I was young, I knew that the United States had were missles with nuclear warheads aimed at the Soviet Union. I also knew that the Soviet Union had missles aimed at the United States. I may not have had a precise idea as to where those missles were aimed, but I knew they were there. Likewise, the public, in the Stargate universe, should know that the Stargate Program exists and that enemies are being fought by the military forces of the United States and other countries. The public does not need… Read more »

No, While I am completely for the idea of having “no official secrets act” and opening up as mush formerly classified information as possible, I believe that this is a different situation.

There have been changes of similar magnitude being accepted without much of a fuss by the… Read more »

I can’t believe you think our civilization hasn’t changed in the pest 700 years. There is so much that has been accomplished in that time. We have come a long way, and still have a long way to go. Think of poverty for example, 700 years ago you were seriously out of luck if you were poor, now there are options and opportunities to get your life back together, even in the tough economic times the world is facing now. Science, and religion are able to be more accepted and differ so much. Everyone is aloud to choose what they… Read more »
