Are aliens real? If they are in fact real, do they live among us on earth? How long have they been on earth? Is the human species in danger? Are the governments of the world in cahoots with them? These are some of the questions that buzz around in my mind as I view our world and the things that can’t be explained using conventional knowledge. For years, many have believed in the existence of other intelligent life outside of Homo sapiens. Images of Greys, Nordics, Tall Whites, and Reptilians have invaded our world in a way that is both strange and alarmingly frightening. Abductions stories, secret bases, movies, and conspiracy shows have helped cement their presence within our pop lexicon. The discoveries of water and other evidence of life on other planets, have helped to further fuel mankind’s growing infatuation with intelligent life outside of its own. Having the knowledge of countless planets and galaxies existing among the stars, also makes the existence of aliens that much more tangible. On September 25, 2005, Paul Hellyer, Canadas Defence Minister from 1963-67 publicly stated: "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head."
Apollo 14 astronaut Dr Edgar Mitchell said he was aware of many UFO visits to Earth during his career with NASA but each one was covered up. During a radio interview, Dr. Mitchell stated that sources at NASA who had had contact with aliens described them as "little people who look strange to us." According to Dr. Mitchell, real-life ET's are similar in appearance to the Greys, a small frame, large eyes and an enormous head.
Disturbingly, he claimed that our technology is nowhere near as advanced as theirs and if they were hostile, he warned that they would've already eliminated the human race.
Dr Mitchell, along with with Apollo 14 commander Alan Shepard, holds the record for the longest ever moon walk, at nine hours and 17 minutes following their 1971 mission. "I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we've been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real," Dr Mitchell said.
Seth Shostak, the senior astronomer and director of the research division at the SETI Institute believes that in the next few decades, absolute proof of extraterrestrial life will be found. Shostak and his colleagues at the SETI Institute frequently harness some of the world's largest radio telescopes to home in on distant stars for a telltale signal of alien communications. Although their searches have raised a few alarms, the signals have been dismissed as human-caused interference, such as noise from a passing satellite. Contact remains elusive. Undaunted, Shostak and his colleagues keep searching.
The possible existence of Aliens is something that has been claimed since the dawn of mankind. Passages in the bible as well as other ancient text, have been cited by many as evidence of this (Ezekiel 1:4-14, and 1:15 - 16, are scriptures that are heavily referenced).
Incas and other pre-Columbian people left behind some extremely puzzling trinkets. Some of the strangest are probably the pieces referred to as Ancient Aircraft, which are small, golden figures that closely resemble modern planes. Allegedly, when ancient astronaut believers made model planes with their proportions and fitted them with propellers and jet engines, they flew perfectly. All of this has led to speculation that the aforementioned ancient civilizations, may have been in contact with advanced lifeforms.
Al Ubaid archaeological site in Iraq is a gold mine for archaeologists and historians. It has yielded numerous objects from a pre-Sumerian time called the Ubaid period (5900–4000 B.C.). However, some of these objects are quite disturbing. A number of Ubaid statues depict strange, lizard-like humanoid figures in unique, unceremonious poses that seem to indicate they were not gods, but rather a race of lizard people. This has sparked many speculated theories of reptilian aliens possibly being an ancient race known as the Annunaki, and originally hailing from a mysterious planet called Nibiru, commonly referred to as Planet X.
Another recent factor that has definitely added fuel to the fire is allegations from NSA Whistleblower, Edward Snowdon. Snowdon has stated that aliens could be trying to contact us on Earth, but we may never become aware of it because their messages might be protected by highly advanced encryption.
On a personal note, I really wouldn't get my hopes up over the truth of extraterrestrial life being revealed to the public. Like many things in this life, the powers that be remain in power by keeping the masses in the dark.
