Area 51, Roswell, New Mexico, crop circles, and unidentified flying objects—-does life exist outside planet Earth? And if so, have we been visited by alien beings? Let’s take a look.
A case for the existence of alien life forms has been made for millennia, but definitely gained steam in the United States in 1947 when the Roswell Army Air Field issued a press release that it had recovered a crashed flying disc. The Air Force quickly made a retraction explaining that the flying disc was actually a radar-tracking weather balloon.
Which is a little fishy, don’t you think? The government also said they recovered a couple alien bodies… I mean dead weathermen.
While declassified information about Roswell continues to be debated by UFO skeptics and proponents alike, another highly contested phenomenon suggesting the existence of alien life is crop circles. Some UFO supporters claim that these elaborate formations may be communications from extraterrestrial beings, although hoaxes involving crop circles have been rampant since the 1970s.
While things like flying saucers and alien abductions are largely discredited by scientists, many high profile astrophysicists like Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking have suggested that alien life is not only possible throughout the Universe, but probable, due in part to its immense size. But rather than gangly, oblong-headed greenies, these arguments are more in favor of organic life such as bacteria.
But you know bacteria just doesn’t have that je ne sais quoi. Better to go with acid for blood and the aaaah pops out of your chest during dinner bit. Sells more tickets.
No matter how you slice it, making contact with extraterrestrials is a subject that continually fascinates us all. Movies, television series, websites, blogs, and actual scientific research have long been devoted to the discovery of life on other planets and what implications making contact could have on our society, religion, science, and life as we know it.
And as long as people have walked the face of the Earth, we’ve had our heads turned skyward, marveling at the wonder of it all. And whether strange lights turn out to be nothing more than helicopters or cases of aliens abductions turn out to be fabrications, wondering whether or not we are alone in the Universe is one thing that makes us utterly and totally human.
