I belive in them... well theres also illegal immigrants so those are aliens... but it is a fact about mars having bacteria. even in religions the say that their are aliens an example is.. can't remember where I read this. but their is lots of other aliens out thier. except god made the so they won't be a good as us or bad. I believ that people who say they don't are just afraid. they're afraid that we are not the only sentient beings. Its just like how people can't imagine the universe has no end it keeps growing contiously.
That's almost exactly what I was saying! The bigger space gets, the bigger the chance that aliens exist. They may be more advanced, less advanced, or equally advanced than us. What matters in that is that they're actually aliens. Alien abduction seems wierd, though. Who'd want to abduct a human? Hippos, platypuses, octopii, jellyfish, that's something to REALLY study.
Partly joking. But those things I mentioned, they're interesting, abot as interesting as finding a UFO in your nose while you're sleepwalking. Believe me, that's interesting. But seriously, the animals I mentioned intrigue me with questions like:
-What's the use for those? They're not population controllers, so what's the use?
-Why is it that they didn't die out? Hippos and platypuses are... kinda weak. Big animals could easily have hunted them to extinction, like the dodo bird.
Gorrilas, they're interesting too. In my study chart, I'd give them 6.5/10 points. They can easily be studied, why (almost) always humans? Why not bacteria?
There would be many reasons for abducting humans as opposed to other animals:
1) If the aliens are worried about possible future threats from Earth, it would make sense for them to study the most technologically advanced species there is. A species which has also made it's first steps out into space, and possesses nuclear weapons.
2) If aliens are biologically similar to us, maybe more evolved, they may be interested in seeing how they were millions of years ago.
3) New species. It is possible that the aliens are actually a species on te brink of extinction, if we are biologically similar, then abducting a human for DNA to create a hybrid creature would preserve their species as well as tey possibily can. This would account for cases where abductees have claimed to have been sexually abused.
I don't believe there are other planets able to substain life. Our Solar System for one is odd, we have our gas giants farther from the sun where as every other solar system known to man('cept ours) they are located nearer the the sun and the rock planets are farther.
Secondly, the planet would need a large planet at least 3/4 the size of Jupiter. The only reason Earth has not been hit by a comet is because whenever a comet comes close to the planets it get destroyed by Jupiter.
Thirdly, the atmosphere would have to be nearly the same as Earth's prehistoric atmosphere when life was starting and it's atmosphere wouldhave to change over time to block out the harmful rays from the planet's sun(or suns).
Now, if I am wrong and there is extrarestial life, the possibility of them being smarter then us and having inter-galaticer space technology is very little. For example, if you put a dog on Vulcan(just an example) then it would be considered "alien" and you have an inferior alien.
Finally, the possibility in meeting an alien face-to-face is extremely low. If there was a planet like Earth it would have to be within in 100 lightyears of Earth because it is impossible to go faster then the speed pf light. It also doesn't help that every solar system appears red on a spectroscope which means it's moving away which means by the time we get space ships that can leave our solar system(which is unlikely due to the fact that there's the whole problem with food being able to survive) all teh planets will be further away.
I agree with Kuja. There have been cases and stories about sexual abuse and certain relations with other species unknown to us. I research a lot on these things, thanks to my school library. But I've been wondering the most about if anyone's ever heard of the Hopkinsville attacks... probably the freakiest encounter ever...
Here, I'll just paste an article explaining the story. It's an excerpt from "A Close Look A Close Encounters".
The scene was a small farm outside of the Kentucky town of Kelly. Inside the farmhouse were eight adults and three children. The night was dark, clear, and hot. At about 7 PM, Billy Ray Taylor (a friend of the Suttons and owner of the farmhouse) came in from the well with the "wild story's that he had seen a really bright "flying saucer," with an exhaust all the colors of the rainbow, fly across the sky and drop into a forty-foot gully near the edge of their property. However, the Suttons did not take him seriously and laughed the story off as an embellishment of his seeing a "falling star."
Half an hour later the family dog began barking violently and eventually put its tail between its legs and hid under the house. The two men, Billy Ray Taylor and Lucky Sutton, went to the back door to see what was bothering the dog and noticed a strange glow approaching the farmhouse from the fields. When the light came nearer, they resolved what caused it: a glowing three-and-a-half-foot tall creature with a round, oversized head. The eyes were large and glowed with a yellowish light; the arms were long, extended nearly to the ground, and ended in large hands with talons. The entire creature seemed made of silver metal. As the creature approached, its hands were raised over its head as if it were being held up.
Understandably startled, the two men reacted by grabbing their guns: a 20-gauge shotgun and a .22 rifle. Withdrawing slightly into the house, the men waited until the creature was within twenty feet of the back door and then fired; the entity flipped over backward and then scurried off into the darkness. After a few minutes, when it did not reappear, they returned to the living room only to see another (or the same) creature at a side window. They fired through the window screen at it, and again the creature flipped and disappeared. Sure that they had hit and disabled the creature, the two men went outside to find the body. As they started out the front door Billy Ray, who was in the lead, paused for a moment underneath an overhanging roof. Just as he was about to step into the yard, those in the hallway behind him saw one of the creatures on the roof reach down a taloned hand and touch his hair from above. The people indoors screamed and pulled him back inside. Lucky Sutton rushed out into the yard, turned and fired pointblank at the creature, knocking it off the roof. There was another creature in the maple tree close-by. Both Lucky and Billy Ray fired at this one and knocked it off the limb; it floated to the ground and then ran off quickly into the darkness. Immediately, another entity (or perhaps the one that had been knocked off the roof) came around the side of the house almost directly in front of the group. Lucky fired his shotgun at point-blank range and the result was the same: no effect. A sound was heard as the bullets struck, as if a metal bucket lead been hit, but the creature scurried off unhurt.
Understandably concerned that their guns were apparently useless, the men returned to the house to join the frightened women and children.
The creatures generally moved in a peculiar fashion. The legs appeared to be inflexible and when they ran, movement was accomplished almost totally by "hip motions." Usually totally erect, when they ran off they bent over and moved with long arms almost touching the ground. The entities' ability to float was particularly evident when one was knocked off the kitchen roof and floated a distance of about forty feet to a fence, where it was knocked off again by a shot. While they did not appear to have an aura of luminescence, their "skin" glowed in the dark with the glow becoming brighter when they were shot at or shouted at.
Mrs. Lankford, the mother of the family, counseled an end to the hostilities. Despite the fact that they had been shot at a number of times, no aggressive action was ever proffered by the creatures. However, the children were becoming hysterical and the creatures kept returning to peer in the windows at intervals; by 11 PM the family's patience had worn thin and they all got into two automobiles and headed at top speed to the nearby Hopkinsville police department
After a half hour's travel time, the police arrived back at the farmhouse with the still-frightened family. The Hopkinsville police, the state police, and a staff photographer arrived to investigate the situation. A thorough search was made of the house, the yard, and the outbuildings. Nothing was found, and the tension ran high: When someone accidentally stepped on a cat's tail and it yowled, "you never saw so many pistols unholstered so fast in your life!" The searchers checked out the woods area but found nothing. One unusual item that was found was a luminous patch where one of the creatures had been knocked off and fallen to the ground. However, when nothing really extraordinary appeared, the searchers began to leave and by 2:15 AM., the Sutton family was alone.
The family had been reassured enough to go to bed and shut off the few lights. Mrs. Lankford was lying in bed watching the window when she noticed a weird glow; the glow was one of the creatures staring inward with its hands on the window screen. Calling quietly to the rest of the family, she remained perfectly calm. Lucky Sutton, however, grabbed his gun and again shot at the creature through the screen. No effect. The creatures continued to make their appearance throughout the rest of the night, never doing anything overtly hostile and only seeming to show curiosity. The last creature was seen at half an hour before sunrise, at about 5:15 AM
