Zeroids: Are UFOs Organic?

Zeroid is a term used by ufologist Dr. Franklin Ruehl to describe mysterious bioforms that may exist in outer space. He believes these Zeroids — if they do exist — could explain many of the UFOs allegedly found in space and elsewhere.

Zeroids, Ruehl says, could have evolved from organic compounds found in space to survive its seemingly unlivable conditions, and may very well be one of the earliest lifeforms to arrive in the cosmos. In an article published on The Huffington Post in 2012 (Are Some UFOs Living Space Beings?), he wrote, “Zeroids may have migrated to all sectors of space…endowed with both mobility and intelligence, it is conceivable that some may have actually penetrated our zone of existence and been seen as UFOs!”

Could some UFOs actually be living organisms, intelligent or otherwise? There are several examples of alleged UFO sightings that seem almost organic in nature. Some of these are referred to as EBANI, or Entidad Biologica Anómala No Identificada — Unidentified Anomalous Biological Entities.

The following videos purport to contain evidence of EBANI:

Some of these actually remind me of Sky Snakes.

Tardigrades, eight-legged micro-animals that measure only about .5 mm long, are known to be capable of surviving incredibly harsh environments, and can even live in the vacuum of outer space for up to 10 days.

This fact alone — that a known animal here on Earth exists that can survive conditions we normally wouldn’t think possible  — makes the idea of Zeroids and EBANI all the more interesting.
