Aliens. Extraterrestrial life. Humans have always had an interest in extraterrestrial intelligence. The speculation of extraterrestrial intelligence is popular these days both in mass culture and in science but belief in extraterrestrial intelligence goes back into ancient times. Extraterrestrial life is defined as life that does not originate from Earth. With the fascination of aliens among human, many became theorist. They believe that extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago sharing their expertise with early civilizations which forever changed the course of human history (Ancient Aliens). An example of this is Stone-hedge. How exactly did human place these heavy giant rocks on top of each other without any heavy machinery or tools. The only explanations one can come up with is with the help of extraterrestrials. So because of this, people have always tried to get in contact with extraterrestrial beings since the day of man.
With the fascination of extraterrestrial intelligence become more popular today, people are trying to figure out some of the mysterious and unexplainable things that are on Earth. They connect these mysteries with extraterrestrial intelligence. Erich von Daniken who is an alien theorist from the television show Ancient Aliens on the History Channel believe that thousands of years ago, extraterrestrials landed on Earth. Erich stated that “these beings were not only hailed as gods but also helped shape civilizations.” Erich explains that there are two types of evidence that these theory points to which are ancient religious texts and physical specimens such as pyramids, cave drawings and stone sculptures. Some evidence which can support this ...

...ave to fight to survive. Several movies that this pertains to as like, The End of the World, Alien, Alien vs. Predator, Battlefield, Cloverfield, The Day the Earth Stood Still, etc.. Although most of the movies out there are about the Earth being invaded, there are also movies like Paul which is a comedy. Since there are no real know sightings that have been discovered, it leaves humans with an unknown feeling about aliens. I feel that many questions come to my mind when i think of aliens. I wonder if I actually met one if they would be friendly or harmful and if they would teach us more about the galaxy around us. Human have alwys had an interest in extraterrestrial beings and would use them as a solution to explain many of the mysteries that Earth has. As long as extraterrestrials hold an interest in humans, there will always be people trying to connect with them.
Is there life out there in the great beyond? It is a question that many of us have asked, but there is no real answer, no tangible evidence to validate the existence of other intelligent beings. All we have are so-called experiences that earthly people have had with these beings, like me. I remember, as a child, I stayed awake late one night. I was lying in bed admiring the stars outside my window when I saw a bright light in the distance. It moved in impossible ways I could not explain, even to this day. It was only for a moment, but the memory of this unexplainable phenomena has stayed with me ever since. If there are other intelligent beings like us living in distant worlds, how do we explain their standing in religious history? Are they gods or angels? Are they our creators? In decades past, people who claim to have had ufological experiences have banded together to create religious societies in their quest to become closer to extraterrestrial life. While all of these societies support different views on UFOs and religion, all have one common belief – there is life out there and they are real and powerful beings far more advanced than humans in technology and psychic abilities. Throughout this research paper, I will establish how some of these religious societies were formed, and describe in detail how their belief system works and why they are considered religious in nature.
Aliens built the Egyptian pyramids. Recent research supports the theory that the Pyramids were built long before humans inhabited the area now known as Egypt. It is also nearly impossible for the Egyptians to have lifted and moved the limestone brick used to build these massive structures. Only a more advanced form of life could have constructed such an enormous undertaking, while using advanced mathematics and geography that were not yet known to ancient peoples.
... highly equipped technology that humans do not have yet, while others insist these are just one of many hoaxes. Believing these are made by aliens will impact greatly on current society because the biggest religion in the world will be proved wrong. Some even say it is impossible for aliens to exist, but we must leave both options open, since we can never predict the future. Even a few hundred years ago, humans thought the earth was flat. Then we found out the earth is not the center of the universe. Recently, we can now travel to other stars and only collect samples. Because we know not even 1% about the universe, I think anything can be possible. Just a week ago, a news released that Vaticans are holding a conference for possible alien beings(fox). Maybe, we humans are just getting adopted to accept other intelligent beings as planned by unknown sources.

According to James C. Fernald, the word Alien means, an “unnaturalized foreigner” or a “stranger” (19). This definition might cause people to fear aliens, because they do not want to face unnatural situations; and we were always told not to talk to strangers. Most people that believe in Aliens might think they have the intentions to harm us due to this definition, but
Intelligent life outside of Earth is one of the most debated topics in The United States of America. There are plenty of shows on television about it and supposedly there has been thousands of sightings all throughout America. Our government is thought of to have encountered and held extraterrestrials. Area 51 is where everyone theorizes that we hold and run tests on aliens, even though there is little evidence. There are also ancient stories told about “gods” coming down and doing inhuman things. In cave paintings you can find UFOs in the pictures, even back then they somehow knew of these flying objects. Most people do not want to recognize that our universe is so vast it would be more likely that there is intelligent life out there than there is not. It is possible that the general population is afraid to acknowledge Aliens’ existence because they cannot imagine a species being more advanced and smarter than us. Another reason people fail to recognize them is because the media has made these “creatures” very far fetched with
We may never know what lays beyond our night sky. It may be nothing, or our Government may be hiding everything from us, perhaps our President is behind these cases as well. This is the mystery that will trouble us for generations, but using evidence such as the LA shooting back in World War II, It is easy to gleam that: Aliens, Do, Exist.
All of these definitions are exact and significant to this research because sometimes it is obvious people are unaware of the true meanings of these words. The meanings of extraterrestrials and aliens have been commonly misinterpreted. An extraterrestrial is something, living or nonliving, which is not from earth, while an alien can be something from earth, but is not native to its surroundings. An unidentified flying object is something that has never been officially recorded. In this case, the witnesses refer to th...
Reports of extraterrestrial encounters have been around since the dawn of human civilization. Some cultures considered extraterrestrials to be their gods (Sitchin 59). A lot of legends and myths originated from sightings of unidentified flying objects. In ancient times, experiencing a close encounters was a mystical and yet terrifying random experience. Today, all the close encounters recorded throughout human history can be classified into one of the eight kinds.
The first possibility is that other civilizations have already visited Earth, but long before we were around. Considering that sentient humans have been around for 50,000 years and we have had recorded history for 5,500 years, in the context of millions or billions of years, this is nothing, so they could have visited prior to our existence and never had a need to come back. This is also one of the most popular in pop fiction, with multiple movies being based around the theory that what the ancients thought were gods were actually aliens. The second possibility says that our galaxy is already colonized, but we are a rural area in which no one has any use of coming to. Many cases of this have been found in Europe's colonization of the Americas. Many small northern tribes had no idea that their whole continent had been colonized until a century later. The third possibility is that the whole concept of physical colonization would be an impractical use of resources to a Type III Civilization. They might build an empire around a small group of stars and build their perfect utopia. The fourth possibility is definitely one of the scariest. In this possibility, one predator civilization roams the galaxy looking for resources and life on other planets only to destroy them for their own benefit. This theory has led many scientists to suggest against sending messages out into the galaxy so others might find us. Much like Columbus's discovery of the Americas, it may not end well for the natives. This is again a possibility often referenced in pop culture. The fifth possibility is much like the fourth, except the predator civilization does not destroy other life for resources, but to keep its rule over the galaxy. It makes sure no other civilizations get to their level, or they risk being crowded out. The sixth possibility
There are numerous of different movies, books, and TV shows on how humans think aliens interact, look similar to, and what the media portrays aliens to be like. Occasionally, most will stumble across news articles with a variety of related headings about aliens, UFO’s, or recent known abduction stories. Every person has their own theories and or thoughts on these basic questions: do aliens exist? Could the government be covering up real life “space ships” or encounters? Countless folks have claimed to witness or have fanciful stories that have fascinated countless while several others are turned away. There are Videos, pictures and pieces of physical evidence to support nearly all of these stories. Even more alarming,
Even though, there is much debate about the purpose of the aliens, there is more agreement about the types of aliens that are reported. Examples are the ‘tall whites’, the ‘grays’, the ‘humanoids’, and the ‘reptilians’. The ‘tall whites’, aren’t always as tall as some of the people say. They actually assume to grow as they mature. Growing so much that eventually they out grow their bodies and eventually die. The ‘grays’ are assumed to be led by the ‘reptilians’, they are small and gray with big metallic looking eyes. The ‘humanoids’ are almost exactly like us. They behave in a similar matter, they look like a cross breed of a gray and a human. But they are tall, pale skinned, and they have blonde hair and blue eyes. The ‘reptilians’ are sot
The thought of government cover-ups have been long discussed. The government has always, in the past, tried to keep any sign of aliens, whether it be pictures from space, to crashes on earth, to a low or nonexistent level. Just recently has the government been harassed to the point where they actually gave us clues to alien existence. It has in some ways been believed that the government has worked in partnership with popular movie directors, to produce alien movies to ease the thought that we may not be alone. Such movies as ôThe Arrivalö and the ever popular ôIndependence Dayö are very good examples of well convincing alien movies. If this is true, they did a good job, because statistics state that 75% of people today believe that there is some kind of intelligent life forms besides ourselves in the universe. That is very convincing compared to the 20% whom believed 25 years ago. ô New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common.ö (MacGowan 261)
There is a popular belief that aliens walked the Earth in ancient times, and these theories have created quite a stir in the scientific community. Ancient alien theorists, like Erich von Daniken and Zecharia Sitchin, believe that extraterrestrials came to earth thousands of years ago. Some hypothesize that ancient aliens are responsible for ancient technological wonders, and that they helped to shape human civilization. Furthermore, the belief that ancient gods were in fact aliens, misinterpreted as gods by the ancient people. As it turns out, there is quite a bit of evidence to support some of these ancient alien theories. However, it is all subject to interpretation, as it has not been validated. Evidence used to support the ancient alien theory can be found all over the world in ancient geoglyphs, art, sculptures, architecture and text. A mesmerizing topic that has captivated millions of people, Ancient Aliens brings to life the possibility that we are not alone in the cosmos and gives us a new perspective on life existing beyond our planet by looking within our very own past history and civilizations.
Do aliens exist? For eons, mankind has pondered over this peculiar question and a revealing truth has yet to be answered. However, one thing is known for sure, the discovery of intelligent alien life outside of Earth would provide support to prove and/or disprove fundamental beliefs that have been held for centuries. In any case, the discovery would serve as a cornerstone for humanity to make the quantum leap in understanding the purpose of our existence. Based on numerous examples, it is impossible to deny the existence of extraterrestrial life outside of Earth. Reportings of sightings, ancient civilizations beliefs, and scientific proof from scientists and astronomers are all key factors that contribute to this statement.
